Hotel Chambord3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stated for 1 night in this hotel. The location is very convenient and the staff is friendly but the building is old. I was very disappointed with the room, which was located on the 7th floor, while the elevator could reach only the 6th floor. I had to walk through corridors to find another staircase which leads to the upper floor (20 steps). The breakfast was just OK.
I have not been at this hotel for some years, and I can see that it has been some improvements, new windows and even installation of air conditioners in some of the rooms. The air conditioning does not however seem to work properly (wrong temperature and very noisy) and is more annoyance than benefit. The main trouble still seems to be the elevator: it is too small and too slow for so tall hotel. I fully understand that it is expensive to retrofit the elevator, but it makes life difficult for guest on the upper floors. Otherwise the rooms are smalls, towels are worn-out too much even for a budget hotel. By the way, remember to bring your own shampoo, since the one provided by the hotel can be used as industrial break cleaner. The Internet connection is free of charge, but it is so slow, that it makes it almost useless (thanks God for free roaming in Europe). Breakfast however was a positive surprise, not bad for a budget hotel in Brussels. The personnel was polite and helpful. The main and only reason for staying in the hotel is its location, walking distance from the Central Station and its proximity to a metro station.
My wife and I are on a trip to see family in Holland and we made a little side tour to Arras and Brussels before returning to Holland. My wife chose the Hotel Chambord due to its proximity to the shopping area of Brussels and that it offered breakfast and parking. Our room was modern if a little spartan that overlooked an interior court yard. The breakfast was a good continental type with two hot dishes with some meats, cheeses, cereals and bread. The scrambled eggs were premade but the bacon was fresh. We found plenty of places to eat but most were either pub or fast food outlets. There was also a steakhouse nearby. I suggest using Google. Parking was indicated on the website but only after we booked did we find out that it is public parking a little ways away for €14.90 per 24hour period. There is wifi but it was slow and not very strong in our room (27). It might have been due to hi usage while we were there. The elevator is very small and will only accommodate 2 adults with little luggage. All in all it was a pleasant stay, the front desk staff were very professional, and helpful. I would stay here again if I find myself in Brussels again.
I asked in advance for 2 rooms, close to each other and if possible, on a high (the highest?) floor. When arriving I found out that the rooms were on separate floors. Since this was important, I asked to change the rooms. What they did. Now on the same 1st floor. But, at night, this meant that we were sleeping at the side of the main street and this was so noisy (cars with loud sound system, trying to go as fast as possible… and much more). So we woke up many times… this is really not the service that you want. So I am very disappointed as you can understand.
You can walk almost anywhere from here - bus, train, EU Parliament.. It has a very good location, friendly and helpful staff. Premises were clean, breakfast tasty with a nice variety of salty and sweet options. My room was very tiny, but with everything I needed. Only the internet connection could be better, I was always loosing the wifi and it was also quite slow. To end my review on a good note, the bed was so comfortable, I felt like sleeping on a fluffy cloud.
Location is excellent. If you can spend slightly higher, avoid Chambord as it has no facility at all. No mini bar. Hair dryer is just hanginf out the wall. Towels are old. It does not smell, but it definetely does not feel clean. Or you prefer this quality, there are options half the price of this hotel.
A pretty good location not far by taxi from the railway station, fare under 10 euros, and a few minutes walk to the 'old city' and all of its various attractions. The start of the city bus tour is again a short walk away. The bedroom was pretty standard and a little on the small side. There was a slightly unpleasant smell in the bathroom on arrival however this cleared after the window had been opened for a short while. Breakfast was again fairly standard though the breakfast room was spacious and bright. The staff at reception were very helpful and friendly.
The staff was professional, smart and so kind. They are well respected and answer our question rapidly and help us at any time. The breakfast is good. The building and the room is not well maintained, cold air is coming from windows that has a bad sealing and isolation. About the Wi-Fi, it was catastrophic, weak and we could not use it. Wi-Fi from other hotels reaches our room, but from our hotel, it was so weak. They need to invest to build a new Internet system.
Excellent breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff, very good location in a calm area on a walking distance to the city center. The furniture in the room was a bit old. The elevator was renovated but still small. The Internet connectivity through WiFi could have been faster. My conclusion is that is a very good value for money and I would visit it again.
For a business reason located quite a near, I took this time this semi-budget option, and actually it was fair enough, having in mind its (almost) central location, decent service and very good breakfast. Yet my room was tiny, some strange smells occurred and occupied hallways each day, while the elevator (I was on the 6th floor) was traditionally small and slow. Still, I'm counting this one as a positive stay in Brussels, especially when you basically need only a place to stay overnight for a day or two. And those few hours I spent in besides sleeping were covered by more than fair wi-fi.
