Great for the transient traveler

i needed something close to the train station and this more than filled the requirement. On top of that listening to the front desk wizard man Norman handle one language requirement after another (he speaks 6) was phenomenal. The room wasn't large but it had a balcony which, if it hadn't been raining, i'd have used. Close to the cool area.. all walking distance. Very easy to find and very comfortable to be in.

Great Location and Price

The staff is multilingual and super helpful. The hotel provides amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, body cream, etc. Free Wireless. Free apples at the reception. Though the room is small, it has all you need and it is clean. I did not know how to operate the cable TV. Location is superb for it is a block and 1/2 from the Central Train Station and a few doors from a metro entrance. Also it is walking distance from dancing clubs such as Cartagena Salsa Bar.

Disappointing and reception staff awful

The hotel is well located for those who need to attend meetings at the EU institutions, and close to the Grand Place (although not on the fancy side of the Grand Place). However, the staff at the reception desk was just awful. With my work, I travel abroad very often, and always stay in hotels, from cheap to expensive. It was, here, the first time I met such awful behaviour. For instance: I was vehemently criticized by the reception desk because I made the taxi driver wait (the driver of the taxi I booked. Yes, I made him wait 5 minutes. But I should not have been criticed like that by the hotel reception). I was also criticized by the reception of the hotel for minor things, and always in a nasty, very nasty manner. A complete shame. The day when I left (Sunday 5 February), I told the reception desk that I had been surprised with this behaviour. His answer was that it was MY behaviour that was not acceptable... and he made the following comment: "But we are used to with French customers". I will definitely not go back to this hotel till I receive apologize from the management.

Terrific location for exploration

At the end of a 3 week motoring trip, we had a day and a half available before our flight home from Brussels. We were looking for a location that would maximize our time to explore Brussels, drop off our rental car at the airport beforehand and returrn to catch our flight on our last day. Centrale Hotel exceeded our expectations in every way; its location was perfect, a two minute walk to Central Station which has frequent express trains to the airport and a few blocks from Grand Place and surrounding attractions. The room was modern, clean, and comfortable, and the staff was exceedingly helpful and accomodating.

Great Location, Friendly Stafff

We stayed for a week at the Centrale Hotel while vacationing and meeting some distant family members for the first time. With quick access to the train station, metro and the Grand Pace, we couldn't have done much better. Staff were very friendly and facilities, while not quite 4 star, were comfortable. Highly recommended.

We found that Brussels was very walkable, much more so than maps would leave you to believe. We had no problems getting trains to Ghent and Brouge - several an hour and on time.

Meh +

Pros: -location -wireless -some of the staff Cons: -some of the staff -having to use hand soap in the shower/no shampoo one day -hot rooms This place was just OK. I probably would not stay here again, as I could stay a few minutes away for cheaper in the future. Like I said, some of the staff were really great, and one staff member was just downright unhelpful and unaccommodating. That being said, it is a 30 second walk to Central Station, which made it easy to get to the airport/everywhere else.
