I liked the room. It was spacy and clean with a bog television screen . It is noisy and if you are a light sleeper then maybe you will have a problem. The receptionists helped me in everything i needed. I have to warn ladies to not stay alone in this area because it's very dangerous, and this is not an exaggeration or a joke. I had the worst experience in my life. If you are accompanied by men, then you will be ok.

When you arrive they put you to pay 5 Euro/night, hotel special tax. They say it`s city tax, but when you say you already payed that tax on reservation, they say it`s a tax for the hotel.
The rooms are very small, and dirty. The carpet is full of stains, i think it was never washed. The bathroom is very very very small.
You will also find a teribble smell in the rooms and all over the hotel.
The only good thing is the position of the hotel, 3 minutes o foot from Brusseles Gare de Midi

Booked via corporate system so double the price. They say it's a 24h front desk. Yeah, but you have to be buzzed in. Even though the guy could see me through the window he waited til I pushed the buzzer thing. Rude. And there was no one there to check out when I left.

Wanted payment up front. Card machine broken. Waved me to an ATM across the street. That closed on me. Had to walk back to the station to find another ATM, and fund it myself at the exorbitant corporate rate. Could easily have been mugged in the process wandering around Brussels late at night with laptops and having to get 140EUR out of a machine. ,(Which is completely out of order anyway when travelling on business.)

Schlepped back to reception. Paid. Had to request a receipt.

Got to my room. It's a hole.

Tv turned itself on blaring loud soon as I worked out how to switch the light on. Pulled its plug out of the wall in frustration. Broken bog seat. No working plug in the sink. Shower head leaking (although in fairness it's actually an ok shower despite the leak). Got into bed. Heard the sounds of people having sex above me.

Felt very different about sleeping in the bed after that. Slept on top of the covers instead.

Right on a main road loads of traffic noise.

Just don't. Anywhere is better than this. I was 50:50 on kipping on a bench at the station, but if already paid by that point.

Will be attempting to get this hotel removed from the corporate list, it's that bad.

Stayed here for 2 nights.
Pros - convenient to the Midi station, vending machine in lobby
Cons - dirty carpet, bed falling apart, toilet seat broken, no tea/coffee sachets, no parking (5 min walk to Q park is OK), pillow is tiny and not very comfortable.

Sounds like more cons than pros and you'd be right ..... consider staying elsewhere unless convenience to the station is what you need

Was one of my least favourable experiences of a hotel to date. Has a lot of potential to be nice, but the stained carpet as I walked into the corridor should of made me question the choice.
It felt like they made their money by their hourly visitors. (Not sure if you can rent for an hour but I also wouldn’t bother)
I walked into my room, took my shoes off and proceeded to stick the the carpet... which looked worse than something you’d find on the floor of a Lloyds or a weatherspoons. The smell from the bathroom was revolting, and I couldn’t even think about stepping into the shower.
The fairground opposite was noisy and didn’t get quiet until midnight, then the banging of doors as people returned to the hotel was off putting, but maybe worrying about someone entering my room had made my senses a little on edge. The furniture was falling apart, with things hanging off the stool. Didn’t try the tv.
The lights in the room also flickered, the masking tape decorations on the wall were eclectic, not sure they were supposed to be peeling off though, but...

The bathroom was modern, could do with being cleaned properly. And the aircon was quiet.

Id seriously recommend spending more and getting some sleep without worrying about if you’ll catch something or make it through the night.

Sorry it’s not a better review.
