Central Brussels Hotel Reviewed

This hotel is situated in a quiet corner of Brussels, yet within walking distance of the city centre (less than 2 km). Subway and tramlines are nearby, getting you downtown within minutes. Also within short range are nice restaurants and bars, so no need to go downtown all the time for food and drinks. The hotel rooms are small, yet comfortable. Beds are perfect, bathroom is clean. It was hot in the room when I got in, but fortunately you can turn off the heating and open the window. You can even sleep with the window open.

There is hardly any noise outside the hotel. Wireless internet is included for free in your room charge giving you great value for the money you pay. Not included is breakfast. That will cost you an additional € 15 each person, which in my opinion is too much for what the hotel offers. Although you do get a fine Nespresso coffee. Pay attention that the hotel doesn't offer parking facilities, although we could park our car just in front of the hotel both nights we were there. Parking is free from 18:30 till 9:00.

There is a parking garage nearby which charges € 15 per day. Also pay attention of your luggage when visiting Brussels. As in most European cities, you can be robbed. I don't blame the hotel for this, but one of our laptops was stolen in the breakfast area while we had breakfast... So keep your personal belongings with you, all the time!
