Managed a few hours of sleep each night, barely....

When I checked in, given that the front desk lone attendant was kind enough to let me check in early and with a smile, I thought I did get a good deal when he mentioned that I actually got a fully furnished studio with kitchenette (instead of the double room I booked). The studio was at another (small) building a couple hundred meters away from the hotel itself with three floors with no elevator. I got the studio on the second floor and it did look modern and nice enough. However I got a terrible misfortune that the studio above me was rented to a horde of inconsiderate noisy guests who made my stay rather miserable. The studio itself was quite nice with flat screen TV with ample Cable channels, wifi worked just fine and sheets/towels seemed very clean. Is it the hotel's fault that my stay was so disturbed? Probably not.

Very Good!

We stayed in a superb room at the amount paid. It had everything we needed except fridge. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only thing was the location, although it is very close to everything, is a red-light district of Brussels. If for you it does not matter, the location is excellent!

Great service but mediocre location

I picked this hotel bc it was listed under a travel website as a super convenient location off the Midi Station via metro since I was traveling alone with my two children from Paris. It was easy to find, the service was good, and the rooms were very roomy. (We had a family suite at a great price under US$100 inclusive of a descent continental breakfast.) Only drawback was that close to the evening, the area became a red light district with many transvestite prostitutes roaming the street corner. Not exactly family oriented. Everything in Brussels is close in reach by foot or metro, so overall, it was a great travel experience but I would probably choose a different place next time if I come back.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

[...] the elevator is tiny & not always working so pack light coz we had to climb 4 stories three times a day! Very tiny, cute patio to sit & relax on the 1st floor by the reception desk as photographed.
