Galia hotel best quality is the position: if you get a front room at high floors you'll have a wonderful viwe of the daily Flea Market, which starts at dawn. It it also near the Gare du Midi (Eurostars south station) and not far from the Grand Place ( fifteen/twenty minutes walking easy). Rooms are quite large and originals, all...

Friendly staff, comfortable (though not sophisticated rooms). The shower was small and a bit brutal, but the breakfast spread in the curio-filled cafe downstairs was fantastic and more than made up for it. In a good location near some nice restaurants and shops and close to the main tourist sites.

We had a wonderful stay at Galia. The English speaking staff let me practice my French. The cafe has a wonderful shabby chic decor and large buffet. The porch was a great people watching location. I liked the neighborhood, which felt like we were in a real neighborhood, not a tourist area. The square, with its kooky flea market, is...

We booked this hotel directly one month before our trip and got an email confirmation. However, 2 days before arrival, they sent us an email informing us that they made a mistake and they did not have a room for us. We called the hotel twice and talked to two different people. They both claimed they had no clue and...

The room was a standard, small room. Don't expect anything fancy. The bathroom positively closet like. Winding maze-like corridors to get to the rooms. All fine if you don't plan on spending much time in the hotel, but the breakfast was terrible. I didn't expect to face processed cheese slices early in the morning. Nor the container of Nesquick hot...

We found this hotel to be very friendly, choosing it because of the review Feb 2003. It provides all we need for a short stay in Brussells. Great view of the square and 5 minutes from Metro Halle Port ( n.b. use the day card for your transport - easy to get from the automatic machines ) Relaxed comfortable welcome,...

Nice little hotel but as woman traveller, I did not care much for the actual location of the hotel. The surrounding areas are nice but I did not like walking from the hotel to those areas. Breakfast was filling, rooms clean although they do not change your towels daily. A bit noisy in the early mornings because of the flea...

We stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Galia in June 2005 and enjoyed our stay there. The hotel is cheap by Brussels standards and although basic, provided a very nice base for our trip to the city with very friendly and helpful staff. The location was very good and not as scary as we initially thought it would be, although...

We stayed at the Galia for two nights in February 2003. The hotel is a 2 star standard European City hotel, small but clean rooms. It was a really cold weekend but the rooms were warm. Brilliant flea market outside the door, best saturday and sunday but it is on everyday. Breakfast served 8.00 to 10 great selection of bread...
