눉If you're looking for the Hilton, this is not the place for you. It's on par with our Canadian Comfort Inns.
There's NO AC, (but this seems to be the norm in Europe)
You have to put your room-key card into a slot inside the room for power,(no extra charge for power, I'm guessing this is purely for conservation reasons) so there's no leaving lights(or fan) on when you go out sightseeing.
No coffee maker in the room but there's a fridge so water stays cold.
눇I don't know how anyone can give this hotel a bad review! You are treated so well here you really hate to leave. All Staff are extremely friendly, ready to help in any way they can with maps, directions and suggestions, and all in english! A wonderful breakfast of sliced meats, fresh baking, cereal, eggs, toast, yoghurt and fruit is provided from 7-11 am but since our going-home cab arrived at 5:45 am the concierge started the ovens early and baked us some fresh croissants and made a pot of coffee so we wouldn't leave hungry! Who would do that for you if you're not special? The owner, herself, checked me in and when she saw I was from Canada immediately said I must be thirsty and asked what I wanted to drink, (coffee,pop, water,) before I went up to my room. I was also two hours early for check-in, but I was booked in with no problem AND with no mention of the great favour I was getting because I was hot and tired! This would be the FIRST place I'd consider if I ever go back to Brussels! So what if the carpets aren't brand new? Wear your socks or slippers and your good! Free WIFI, water pressure out of this world for a shower(I was on the 4th of 5 floors)and hot HOT water right from the word go, a GREAT bed and staff that appreciate you picked them to stay with make up for any stained(but clean) carpets!
