And not in a good way. We were just looking for cheap accommodation for one night close to the train station, as we were arriving from London by train and wanted to stay one night before continuing to Amsterdam. But where do I begin. The hotel rooms looked great in pictures, but they weren't. At all. The rooms were dark...

I was there unfortunately during the Fish market (big international event) so all the hotels were full and I didn't have the choice. But gosh it was a bad experience. Not only my room was small but the only window was facing a huge wall and the mattress was not particularly good. On top of that, I had to take...

Hotel is close to the Eurostar station and this is why I am giving it 2 stars. The hotel itself is horrible with rooms that do not lock and dirty bed linen. When I stayed here the reception area was full leaflets for call girls. The sign in the reception also made it clear that rooms could be booked by...

Well it's close to the Gare de Midi for good connections by rail or bus and staff are welcoming and helpful - but after that there is not much more to say. The rooms are plain and bare with little to add - TV and Wifi occasionaly work and if you are looking for alternative night time entertainment - !!...

Actually, I havent found any reason to complain. I can say this hotel kind of saved my life, as I was just passing Brussels and didnt book anything in advance. I didnt spend a fortune here, got a quiet room, which I asked for, it was clean without any issue, receptionists were kind and helpful. I didnt even mind that...

Plusses - Walking distance from Gare du Midi and Grand Place, metro, and there's a large market outside on Sunday morning. Breakfasts were good and well worth it at 5Euro. Bathroom new and clean. Sheets crisp and clean Minuses - everywhere smelt of metal polish. Our room only had a window onto an tiny internal shaft - no outside view...

After a few days travelling around this hotel was great for the final night before travelling back to the uk on the Eurostar. The service was good - the man on reception had limited English but was friendly and tried hard to speak to us. The room was a smoking room- no one asked whether we wanted smoking or non...
