            Dirty rooms, old furniture, windows not closing perfectly, very noisy, poor breakfast, bad parking place with huge holes at entrance.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            Classic atmosphere was nice. Secure parking was convenient.

            The Hotel Restaurant was terrible. We were urged to order only Entrées and when we received our Entrées, they were minimal without side dishes and were too expensive. We paid 16 Euros for a dish with a small piece of chicken and 4 tortellini and way too much sauce! If you have to eat dinner while staying at the hotel, find a place down the street. The breakfast on the other hand was great. The walls are thin. We could hear the people in the next room very clearly. The drain pipes for the bathrooms above us traveled behind the walls of our room. It was difficult to sleep through everyone flushing their toilets all night long.

          • Family with children
            3.2

            The beds were comfortable. And they had fenced in parking. For a price that is but the area it was worth paying it for the peace of mind.

            The meals were very expensive for the little bit you got. It was in a horrible part of the city. Some one outside throwing M80's outside our window all night. The walls were so thin you could hear everyone's toilets flushing, everything going on out side. Everyone walking in the halls. And there was dried urine on the base of out toilet. So it was not very clean. When you took a shower the whole bathroom got soaked. It was just a mess.

          • Couple
            7.8

            It is two bus stops from the Grote Markt or around 20-30 minutes walk. Comfortable beds, good breakfast.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The service and willingness to help of reception staff was a major plus point. As we did not have to move our car after check out until we left Brussels in the evening this was very convenient for us.

          • Couple
            3.2

            small room, awful smell, moderate service

          • Single
            9.2

            Very friendly, old hotel with a real soul and touch of old fashioned style. A sort of labyrinth. Real art works on the walls. Excellent breakfast. Cheap hotel not far from the town center. The area is popular, mixed up people, it is very alive ! No room here for xenophobia !

            A sort of smell when you go in, maybe humidity ? Simple essential oils could be helpful. Just tell them. The large room where we had breakfast should be repainted, it is rather grey and sad. The Emaillerie belge ( not far ) could " wrap " its pillars .

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            As I went to chech in to the hotel,the receptionist asked about the money and gave us the rooms key,not friendly.. I asked about the receipt because I did pay cash ,she said get it in the morning.how can I pay something not getting the receipt. Strange? I complain for the Internet and the receptionist said I can not get hold of manager. What a surprise ? I paid. £5.00 and the Internet didn't worked so I had to get the more y back. The receptionist not helpfully at all. We thought to have dinner at the hotel restaurant,but we have been served even outdated butter,expired ,realising that was a big mistake for staying at this hotel. I would like some sort of compensation because It has ruined my break,and clearly If I do not get any replay I'm going to get the complain further up?

          • Couple
            7.0

            The hotel itself is nice. I think the breaksfast was very good. I like they can pick you and take you to the Gare du Midi station.

            The location, although is close to the center, I think the neighborhood looks quite dangerous.

          • Single
            6.2

            Fair for 1 night in transit, won't recommend it for more. Location is good, surroundings are not, the building doesn't look very good.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            The location was great, the room was comfortable even though it was hot and the toilet reeked of urine. However, the maid was in the downstairs hallway talking to the front desk clerk the whole time making it difficult to talk to the front desk clerk. We found both these women to be unfriendly and rather rude.

            See above, will not recommend and will not stay here again.

          • Family with children
            3.2

            The free shuttle service from the hotel to the centre. The driver of this service is very kind and helpful.

            The hotel is situated in one of the worst areas of Brussels. One does not feel safe venturing around this area alone, particulalry at night. The breafast was very very poor, and the waitresses supplying this breakfast were even poorer.

          • Family with children
            5.4

            It is an good alternative if you don't want to spend a lot of money on the hotel, it is simple but clean. The hotel is not so far from the centrum and the train station.The breakfast was also reasonable and personel were friendly.

            We really didn't like the neighborhood & it was not safe to walk there at night; we could hear from our hotel window a lot some fights and arguments.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Staff at front desk were helpful & accomodating. Hotel is old and a wee bit run down, but has a nice 'antique' feeling and very clean. Beds were comfortable. Free apple on the pillow- unique and very much appreciated!

            Breakfast was just alright, not very tasty by any standards but many options. Shower filled up very quickly, you get about 4 minutes to get clean and get out. Tv made odd noises while turned on, but had many channels. Bad location at night!!!! Females, beware!!!!!!!

          • Couple
            6.2

            Breakfast was excellent!

            The hotel is situated in an economically depressed area.
