Dear MichaelJ;

Thank you very much for your review, your opinion is very important to us, and helps us to improve in our service.
As you mentioned, sun rarely shines at brussels, and during your stay there was an unexpected heat wave, the first of the season. Due to technical difficulties we experienced the first two days with air conditioning, as it has been off for the whole winter, we had to change rooms, as the south face rooms were warmer than usual, as you mentioned in your review. All have been settled properly since then, and we expect you to visit us a third time to check it yourself.
We are very concernd about the green mould on the breakfast. We are double checking our quality procedures, as we do bake bread every morning and we do not keep it for the day after.
We want you to know that we take seriously your report, and would like to have you back with us, and thank you for rating us.
Best regards,

The hotel is very good for a business or tourism stay. The twin room was good, being clean, well organised and thoughtfully supplied with toiletries, comb, magnifying mirror and good lighting in the bathroom etc. The breakfast was good although differed from cooked options to just a continental choice on different days. Free wifi is provided but is a bit erratic. The area is very interesting - lovely buildings, good bars and restaurants nearby.

The Hotel, with a spanish atmosphere and Spanish speaking very friendly receptionist is situated in a great neighborhood. avenue Waterloo. Great restaurants, shops etc with beautiful buildings. The hotel itself has free parking from 1800 till 09.00 in the streets around it. And small parking under the hotel for € 18.
Rooms are great. Beds are ok and not fixed on the floor. Window can be opened for fresh air. Breakfast is complete with fresh food and good coffee. Ten minutes from European district and the financial district.

We stayed for 2 nights and everything was better than we anticipated. The area is beautiful and convenient with frequent transport to the centre if you don't want to walk 30 minutes. The hotel is modern, very clean and quiet with very good facilities. The breakfast is not gourmet but very good with a big choice of hot and cold food, fresh fruit and nice Spanish ham. The staff who are mainly Spanish, are very friendly and helpful.
I strongly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: They offer to upgrade you to a room with balcony for a fee. The standard room is perfectly fine.
