Unhappy with this hotel

Hotel is not bad, location is ok if you are using Midi Station. But NO internet access, staff very rude when I asked for wifi, Please avoid this hotel if you want to use wifi. There are others I should have chosen. Also, the girl at the front desk call me a taxi for the morning and assure the price would be flat 45 E, however the driver charged 55 E and I had only the 45 as the girl assure that! Bad experience, Do not reccomend it

Don't Bother

Room assigned was hot all the time, September, when we complained, nothing was done. Opening the stairway door helped the hall way but not the room! Leaving the window open was not enough and the traffic noise made it impossible to sleep. Save your money for another place.

Too expensive

The hotel was more or less OK, I would place it at the low range of a three start hotel, but it was by far too exensive. Although the free WiFi was not working, the staff took no action (for example exceptionally give free access to their high speed WiFi). They only said they were sorry and unable to help.

only because it's close to brussel zuid

The only reason to stay here is if you are taking the TGV to Paris departing from Brussel Zuid, which is less than a kilometer away. Other than that the neighborhood is filthy, the pipes squeak like an old pirate ship every time someone flushes, and the wall are paper thin. A large group of teenagers were checking in at the same time and did their best to turn the place into a zoo for a few hours. At least the elevator works, the check in guy was very nice and the room was mostly clean if run down. The air conditioning was new and comfortable. The Grote Markt is a few kilometers away so if you don't mind a walk this might be a good place for the money. Did not stay for breakfast as the train left in the AM. We have stayed here on two occasions but will not return.

Decent Hotel

Hotel was average. The area is a bit run down, but safe. Location is great. 5 minutes from the Brussel's Midi rail station. 10 to 15 minute walk (a straight shot for the most part) to the Grand Place.

Nice Location

This hotel is very conveniently located, just walking distace from the south station - gare midi. The hotel facilities are good, the room is nice, and the breakfast was very nice. The hotel staff needs training, he would not even help me with directions to get to the hotel and even while check in he was busy with his phone.

Brussels

It was an okay room, the good part was it was close to the train station. But we still didn't like the location because it was a very shady area.

The Brussel Square is only a couple miles away maybe less. There are closer hotels.

Good for an overnight stop

We stayed here for the night on our way from London to Amsterdam. It worked out good because it was close to the Midi train station and Grand Place. Average hotel but decent price and did the job.
