The hotel was in a great location, across from the Mannekin Pis. The room had large window that opened wide. We didn't spend much time in the room, but when we did, it was fun to people watch the people at Mannekin Pis. The price was very reasonable for the location and cleanliness of the hotel. Definitely no frills, but...

I´ve stayed at the hotel for only one night, for I was moving to another city the following day. It is a very small family hotel, which has less than 10 rooms. It has no elevator, only an 80 cm wide staircases, so if you are taking a big suitcase with you or have a bone fracture, discard it with...

Spent 2 nights here, sept 9th and 10th and it was perfect for us! we had no intention of staying in while in Brussels so the fact that the rooms are smaller than here in Canada didn't bother us a bit. Breakfast was filling, fresh pastries, jams, juice and good coffee. Served at your door! bathroom was clean and more...

The room was a good size but was at the top of 3 flights of narrow stair so hard to get your suitcases up, so if you have mobility issues ask for a room in advance on the 1st floor. The breakfast (served in the room) was average. Good location, walking distance to everything.

This place is reviewed as good value for money, and it is. Cleanliness in the bathroom was great, bedroom was just ok (curtains and bedspread could have used a wash). Other reviewers have mentioned noise, but I didn't find it a problem on the 3rd floor with the windows closed. The space is adequate and my room was reasonably laid...

The room was big but very basic. Looks like a mom-and-pop establishment and the staff were a little difficult to get hold of when trying to check in, and out, but once found they were very helpful! The hotel is in the perfect location though, overlooking the Mannekin Pis and subsequently all the tourists having their photos taken. It provided...

Of all the places we went in Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, this place was the one we enjoyed the least. It was acceptable but no more. The writeups we saw in the guidebooks led us to believe that it was more special than it was. Okay value for the money but a real let down for a honeymoon. We didn't...

I wish I had read these reviews before booking. I would not recommend this place. While the room was fine, the location was not ideal due to the very close proximity to a primary tourist attraction, the in house gift shop and bars - crowded and noisy at all hours. Breakfast was the least pleasant of all our experiences on...

I have to admit that we didnt enjoy our trip to Brussels, other than to say we were happy we went there once in our life. The hotel is just one part of it, but the city as a whole doesnt have much to see or do, and its really pretty dirty. If you are considering a trip to Belgium,...
