Pantone Hotel Trip Advisor Review

We had been really excited to stay at the Pantone Hotel on our trip to Brussels after reading a lot about it in on design blogs. Although a little disappointed with the sophistication and furnishings of the hotel (dirty marks on the walls, felt chairs that were marked and wearing) it was still a lovely stay and great value for money. The rooms are quite large, with a king bed, table, chairs and desk, as well as a spacious bathroom.

Although the location of the hotel is not right in the centre of the city, it is in a nice neighbourhood and a 10 minute walk from the train station. The walk into town is around 2km, and a nice easy stroll, with lots of beautiful buildings, stores and restaurants to see along the way.

The staff seemed a little unfriendly, but that could also be a slight language barrier as they spoke mainly French. We were charged with a cable-tv bill on checking out, but after explaining that it was a mistake and we hadn't bought any movies it was removed from our bill without too much fuss.
