Notable Flaws Mar a Reasonable Hotel
Posted Jan 30, 2016
This is a hotel that has some good qualities, but some serious shortcomings result in a net disappointment. The good qualities are its location, around the corner from the Maneken Pis. This puts in in the heart of the city, a short walk from the railway station, the Grand Place, and the museum mount. The staff are efficient. The rooms are small, but they have plenty of outlets to recharge your electronic gadgets, and all of the equipment works properly.
The most serious flaw is the lack of soundproofing between rooms. We could hear our neighbors talking and even moving around in their rooms. On our first night, a crying baby kept us awake for hours. On the second, we could hear a couple engaged in what one might call an earlier stage of the parenthood experience. Of course, this was probably reciprocal: if we could hear them, they could hear us.
The breakfast buffet (which costs extra) is more limited than most hotel offerings. It lacks egg dishes and warm meats, such as bacon or sausage. Its most interesting feature is cold crepes and a variety of spreads for them. It also has cold meats, cereal, bread, cheese, and fruit.
