Recent guest reviews

A nice hotell with good breakfast. Location is a bit off the city centre and it is about 15-20 min of walking. The hotell is rather new and crisp. The internet works well for business and the TV channels cover various languages and news outlets.

Stayed here as part of the Tomorrowland Global traveller package. The hotel was great! Very modern and cool! Little things like usb plug sockets were in the room by the bed which for international travellers is great! Breakfast was limited but good. The hotel is very quiet and I would stay again!

I was very pleased with this hotel, their staff, and was intrigued with the new decor since the last time I stayed there. It is located close to both our management company's office and the EU/EC offices.

This was a hard one to rate. The hotel and rooms are funky, bright, clean and welcoming and staff friendly. The bar/cafe is expensive, the air con was noisy and we wasn’t sure it was working as the rooms are stuffy if window kept closed. If you want coffee in the morning it’s 3€ for a cup and you can refill as much as possible until breakfast finishes at 11am. Breakfast is very nice and plenty of choice which is topped up regular 14.50€ which includes coffee. We only had breakfast 1 day which we really enjoyed. Sunday morning at 5.30am we were rudely awoken by the fire alarm going off...the bit we heard wasn’t in English which worried us (we could make out most of what was being said), it was only on for 30/40 seconds. When we went to see people said it was someone smoking in their room and a false alarm. I was a bit worried that they managed to realize this within 40 seconds (or did they turn it off before checking)!!! I asked the receptionist whom said they were already on the scene as someone had left their shower on and flooded the cafe. Hmmmmm. After discussing things and asking if we could have breakfast free as some sort of compensation she agreed. Would i return...it’s a bit of a walk for the Christmas market, but if I got a deal yes I would. A taxi from the main square is 10€ which we got both nights after walking for miles during the day.

It was a great hotel with the modern interior, different than others. It was clean and well equiped, had big and cousy rooms. The service in the hotel bar/restaurant could be better. I was sitting and waiting to have any approach for a long time. No attention was paid initially.

This hotel stands out in design, it is completely hip and has unprecedented decoration. Spacious rooms, good WiFi, ice lobby/restaurant (even with lots of sockets for your charging devices). Good location relative to city centre and EU village.

I walked into the lobby looking for the familiar check-in counter and competent uniformed staff. The counter had been replaced by a pool table. There were a couple of people in tee shirts manning computers. It appeared to me that were guests using public machines. I received no greeting that indicated they worked for the hotel. There were no uniforms, no name badges. In short there was no one in the lobby that I wanted to share my credit card with. So I looked around and spotted what appeared to be a self-check-in kiosk. I went to it, found my reservation, and it spit out a key. I got in the elevator and went to the assigned room and found the bed unmade, the sheets stained. I called the "desk" and got a human who asked me to come back to the lobby. It turns out that I walked past the woman with the nose ring and tee shirt that I thought was a guest who turned out to be responsible for checking me in in the first place. She apologized for the condition of the room and congratulated me on an "upgrade" for my inconvenience. The upgrade was simply two rooms, only one with a window, instead of one. The good news was that the bed had clean sheets. It had been a long trip, so I looked for snacks, a minibar, etc. There was an empty refrigerator in the closet. Apparently they don't stock them anymore. I went to take a shower and looked for a bar of soap. There was none. Apparently they only provide soap in squirt bottles these days. I turned on the TV. It said, "Loading" for several minutes, then a limited selection of programs came on. I started watching and the system crashed after a few minutes and said "loading" again. This cycle was repeated a few times until I gave up in frustration. I had just made a transatlantic flight and I was hungry. I went back to the lobby to find something to eat, since there was nothing in the room. The night manager said the dining room was closed and there were no snacks, no vending machines, etc. He offered to send out and have a taxi deliver for a fee. I declined, and went back to my room until the dining room opened for breakfast. The dining room I was familiar with had been converted to a yoga studio. Another space had been carved out for the dining room which appeared to be manned by the minimum number of staff tending the smallest menu possible. I noticed a number of middle-aged businessmen wandering around with the same confused and befuddled look on their faces that I am sure I displayed.

Very nice. I would not mind to have some hot drinks available (infusion, tea, coffee) in the room. The new bathrooms are starting to show some signs of use, which is odd for such a new hotel. The room could have been warmer. Internet being available on TV would be OK.

We stayed here for a weekend trip, and have to say the hotel is great! Beautyful, modern and spacious rooms, great costumer service, comics everywhere, very close to the bus that takes you to and from the Airport. Definitely worth for a rebooking!

Parking needs to be explained in the website as an added expense. Other than that the hotel was really good. Staff was exceptional, friendly and helpful. Check in and check out were very easy. Location would be nice to be closer to Grand place.
