Stayed at the PH for 1 week in Oct 2017 as it was on a recommended list. The hotel is a great friendly establishment ideal for centre of Brussels and not too expensive. Well maintained, clean and with good facilities. The location is handy for a walk down towards the Grand Place and other attractions. This does not take too long, perhaps 10-15 mins if you don't stop in the shops along the way! Breakfast is a good choice too. Overall I would go back there again.
Stayed for a couple of nights in business. Generally it's a nice place. Room is ok. Mine oddly had a strange odour in the wardrobe (but I assume this is a one off). They include a Nespresso machine in the room, which is a really nice touch. Slight shame that they only provide one pod though (technically they give you two... but one is decaffinated). Why 3 stars, not 4? Firstly breakfast at 15euros just seems excessive to me. Secondly their gym, it's great that they have one, and it's ok - just a bit worn out. Some old running machines and various cardio bits, a multi gym (not well aligned on cables), dumbells up to 10kg. The space is good, it could just use some attention.
The hotel is well located for all business held in Covent Garden. The room seemed quite nice, silent environment, kettle and minibar inside. I stayed there twice and had the same problem with air-condition - could not set up proper temperature, it simply did not work. The breakfast restaurant looks very nice. It is shared with another hotel. Too crowded, not well maintained, staff ineffective in replacing dishes, not enough clean plates. On one day I had to wait over 10 minutes to get a slice of bread, on another there were no clean forks.
Pros: The room was spacious and comfortable and staying in the executive room was really pleasant. Cons: It seemed like such a trouble every time I approached the counters. Like I was disturbing them. This happened three times with three different staff. Went to breakfast and told I didn't have it included with my room only to have to prove it with my voucher. That's your issues not mine! You're the hotel! A really fair hike from the grand place!
I spent a couple of nights at the Progress, a hotel in the same network of Siru and Des Colonies hotels (with which it shares the excellent breakfast room) but of significantly higher quality. Efficient personnel at the reception, silent and clean environment, lovely room with a wonderful desk, a comfortable office chair, TV, kettle, coffee machine, rich minibar, ample bathroom, performing free Wi-Fi. My review would easily be a 4-star if only I didn't find a major drawback: mattresses and pillows. Being them horribly soft, it was pretty much impossible (for me at least) to find at ease on the bed. I woke up in the morning, both days, with lower back pain and the feeling of not being rested. That's a pity, really, because this hotel could have easily been my first choice when in the Rogier area. Hope they will intervene.
Stayed for 3 night, due to a business meeting nearby. The comfort of the room is excellent - large working area, good WiFi connection, good curtains to darken the room, coffee machine, and a comfortable bed. The breakfast is good - good selection and decent quality. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the stay was excellent.
For the celebration of a recent events, my company organised a corporate drink. The event was organised very smoothly by the hotel in a quiet room close to the main bar. The food and the drinks were good and the staff very helpful.
Stayed overnight for business, it is in a great location only a 0 minute walk to the Grand Plaza, the room very clean and large, the breakfast was good, the staff were very helpful cannot find fault at all with this hotel.
Good position, located in the city centre near food locations and other prestigious hotels. Kind staff, available for every kind of request: slippers, splitted payment, keeping the luggage and more. Clean and modern rooms, with bathub, soft lights, beautiful view from the window. Also really nice lobby, you feel in a different world.
We stayed for 6 nights and asked for the room to be cleared of any decorative furniture so that we could have a more spacious room - this was done very efficiently. When, on the first evening there was a problem with the router on our floor, they moved us to another floor after offering us a choice of other rooms - and then they cleared the new room of the decorative furniture. The staff was really polite and very helpful - it is this kind of great attitude that sends clients away with a smile on their faces. The hotel itself was very comfortable despite a bit of wear and tear - the breakfast could be slightly improved - it was quite heavy on carbs and there was not a tremendous choice when compared to other similar hotels. We even opted to have a Danish (Pain au Raisin) and cafe late at the cafe that was part of the Sheraton (plenty of halal choices there too). The bedrooms was very comfortable as was the bathroom - with all amenities that one would need. Our room overlooked the quiter part of the surroundings with no overlooking buildings. We even managed to find a 7-seater transporter taxi that regularly picked us up where ever we needed in Brussels with a 30 minute notice. It cost a bit more than other taxis but it is rare to find a taxi that is always on time, especially in a city like Brussels that has taxi drivers with a very lax attitude. Overall though, I was very happy with our stay at the Progress hotel and would definitely return again. There was an area not far from the hotel that was full of Turkish restaurants - you have to be careful though because the dodgy areas are quite close as well (near the Nord Station).
