would stay again
Posted Jun 13, 2010
For the price, I doubt you could find a nicer place in Brussels. Everything seems to be within walking distance, and the hotel staff was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, although we had to pay way too much for unlimited internet during our two day stay which I thought was a bit much. Continental breakfast was included, but not really worth going down for unless you wanted a croissant and coffee. The only problem I found was that Frommer's recommends this hotel and notes that they have free shuttle service to the train station. Upon checking out, they arranged a shuttle for us and charged us a set price, (meanwhile the metered taxi we took when we arrived was cheaper). Also, we told them we would be ready in 5 minutes and the hotel clerk repeatedly called the room asking us to come down within one minute of me telling her we would be down. Then when my boyfriend used the bathroom on the first floor as we were walking out, she went over and asked him to please leave and said the taxi had to go as he was in the bathroom, which I thought was extremely rude. If you stay here, you will be pleased with what you get for the money, but do not let them arrange "their" shuttle for you, ask them to arrange to have a metered taxi waiting instead.
