Hôtel Van Belle

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel seems to have added more rooms. Where we stayed looked so modern and nice. Very clean and tidy with good smell everywhere. Spacious reception area and a good layout. Hotel no longer offers shuttle pick up from any station. This will soon be removed from the website page because we called to be picked up and told they don’t offer that service anymore. Room is clean and tidy for us (twin bed). The pillows are small. But if and when asked for extra, you can get. Tiny fridge in the room. It serves the purpose. Good tv mostly foreign language except channel 28 which is France24 (24 hours news channel). Breakfast works out €8 p/p. Same food everyday if you will be staying a week. You will be bored as there isn’t variety. Bacon always in short supply. I love baked beans but there wasn’t any. Staff are polite and nice. Very friendly. Rooms always kept tidy which is good. For the price and closeness to city and train Stations, it is the best place to stay. It is a walking distance to Brussels midi and Brussels Central. Walking distance also to Grand place. One of the eye brow tourist place to visit. Environment not too good for classic n posh person but when inside, you will love it. Good WiFi connection as well.

Enjoyed our stay here. Staff were lovely but a little overworked. Forgetful. But their friendliness made up for any mistakes. Breakfast was good. Beds were very comfy. Bit out of town and not the nicest end of town.

I stayed here one night in March 2018. I chose the hotel because it is at an accessible price compared to other Bruxelles accommodation options and because it was at less than 20 minutes walk to Gare du Midi, where are the busses for the Charleroi airport. Also less than 20 minutes walk to Grand Place, the tourist trap. The staff was friendly, the room was clean. This is not a high end hotel, but it is a fair quality for 80 euro a night in Bruxelles.

I booked this hotel for 2 nights on booking.com as non-flexible. We couldn't arrive at hotel on first booked night because all trains were cancelled in Germany that day due to bad weather. So I called at hotel reception and told about my problem. The person was very nice and he delayed our stay for one night without any extra charges. We took train next day and arrived to Brussels at around 5 PM. They send free shutle car to pick me up. After a few minutes they gave me the key. My room was on the 4th floor. Room was surprisingly clean and nice. There were two chairs,Table, Side board, cabnit, Safe, LCD TV, Hair dryer, Phone and double bed. Bed was comfortable without any doubt. Pillows were a bit small for me. Bathroom, Bath tub was clean. We checked out on sunday and asked if they can drop us at Brussels Midi train station but unfortunatly transport was not available that day. So we took Tram to get there. I paid 120€ for 2 nights without breakfast. Overall good experience. I recommend it

We booked two standard rooms over the new year period. When we arrived we were given a room in one side of the hotel and our friends were over the other side. We found this a bit disappointing that our rooms were not together despite booking at the same time. Me and my partner trundled to our room and it was lovely and modern. Decent sized room, well decorated and a nice bathroom. Our friends on the other hand had an awful room which looked like something from the 70's. Awful decor, a tv that looked older than me and a bathroom that just looked well worn. No amount of cleaning could make it sparkle. We went to reception to find out why we had two very different rooms despite paying the same price and we found the hotel had upgraded one of us to the deluxe rooms. Not very fair for the whole party! We had a little moan and the manager came out and managed to sort out a room next to ours which was fab. The showers in our room were amazing but only fault was there was no hair dryer. I found the hotel to be in a good location, I'm a keen walker so I enjoyed the ten minute walk into the center, however this Might Not suit everyone. Breakfast Was basic and i Found There Was Never Enough bacon, they needed to keep it topped up a bit more frequently. Overall hotel was nice although I would recommend the deluxe room and not the stamdard. Staff were friendly and lovely.

Through the free shuttle service, I was picked up at Tour midi 15 min after I called. Otherwise, tram 82 goes in a few minutes to stop Porte dÀnderlecht and from there it is a 4 minute walk. I used this tram stop for many trips and bought a ticket for 10 single trips. I had paid for a cheap single room and it was basic but clean. At bedside there was an electric outlet so I could charge my mobile phone. Free wifi that worked well. A small bath tub in the bathroom. Breakfast was OK.

The hotel is located in an arab street of Anderlecht which is rather dirty and chaotic. No wide choise of restaurants in there (except small kebab shops) but the city center is easily reachable. The lady at the reception desk was very kind and nice; good enviroment at entrance hall; room a bit old but basically clean; free shuttle Service to Midi station.

Single room was small (I knew upfront), yet clean. Wifi password didn't work, neither did 2 out of 3 Netherlands TV channels that would be on the 45 channels TV set. The bed is OK. Neighbouring guests can be overheard when they're talking loud. Breakfast was okay, although I missed the marmalade, chocolate spread, and bowls for the yogurt / cereals. I saw another review stating that it was a 40min walk from Brussels South/Midi Station. I did it in 10mins. It's not that far! Clemenceau is the nearest metro station, 2 blocks away.

I didn't expect much for the price I paid. The room was fully renovated with a beautiful bathroom, new interior, nice tv and really dark curtains for those day sleepers and night crawlers. The rooms are cleaned/looked at daily. We didn't take the breakfast but there is an option for that. Other travellers might complain about the neighbourhood its located in but all in all its not that bad. Keep an open mind and don't do or act in anyway you wouldn't act or be at home

Arrived for 3 nights in mid November. Relatively easy to find, but a fair 40 minute walk from Midi-Zuid.. we should have got an Uber. The main reception and bar area are lovely and warm. Well decorated and welcoming. A tourist tax is payable upon arrival (about €1 per day). The staff are multilingual and very professional. Some of the bedrooms have been refurbished lately, giving them a basic, but fresh appeal. Ours had not been, and whilst tidy, looked as though the furniture had not been updated since the 1990s. Most was very heavily chipped, bleached through years of cleaning, or badly marked, as was the case with the bed frames. The bathroom had not had a thorough deep clean for months, and under the sink was badly coated in dust, and the bath seals starting to mould. Two of the lights didn’t work, which housekeeping must have know about for at least the whole stay, as the rooms were cleaned and checked over by a supervisor daily. The safe didn’t work and the telly was like one I owned 30 years ago and had equally good reception. WiFi was available for free, and there were sockets in the room to charge phones, &c. Breakfast was available from 7.30 - 10.00. The breakfast room desperately needs refurbishing, with no natural light, a decor decades out of date and communal dining. Hygiene was very good. The breakfast itself was basic, consisting of cereals, fruit, chopped hot frankfurters, sometimes bacon and eggs (sometimes hard boiled, other times available raw to boil your own), ham and cheese slices and 5 different sorts of sliced bread. All of the guests arrive for breakfast at 8am, like ravenous dogs, so arrive early if you want any choice. A sign in the bedrooms informs ‘No picnic in the rooms’, so fill up! Upon departure, the hotel provided a free shuttle bus back to the station, which was fantastic. Overall: clean, good value, basic. You’d get the same standard from any British chains like Travelodge or Premier Inn, though breakfast could have been better. I’d visit again I think.
