“very friendly family run hotel”

“Much more impressed than thought would be!”
After reading the reviews i was slightly worried about this hotel and the surrounding area however was only booking one night. I found the area to be perfectly fine, i was travelling on my own with a three year old and i felt perfectly safe walking around the area when i went out to look for food. Its only a short walk or metro ride to central brussels, the hotel room was bigger than i had expected and pretty comfortable, the breakfast was ok, plenty of food, made good start to day. If i was visiting Brussels again i'd return as they offered everything i needed and there was a good playground just down the road
“Good value for money, would stay there again, a good walk to city centre”
Although our first impressions of the general area were "a little tired" and the exterior of the hotel could do with a lick of paint, we were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable relaxing interior, and by the helpfulness and friendliness of all staff we met. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean. There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room which we would have used if present. A large room safe was provided free of charge. The buffet style breakfast had a large array of good quality food and gave us a good start to the day. The hotel provided an evening meal with several options including vegetarian, and was very good, although the portion sizes meant that you needed three courses. The hotel was just outside the western city ringroad with several shops, mini supermarkets and some smaller restaurants nearby. A ten to fifteen minute walk to the city centre gave us an enormous choice of good quality restauants, as well as hundreds of chocolate shops! We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
“Not as good the photos but better than the reviews”
As I have read in other reviews the hotel is not in the nicest area but I found it to be not as bad as I had feared. The place is clean yet dated and for a single room that I had was surprisingly large. The main problem was that the staff were extremely unhelpful. For example not volunteering me information such as requiring to book the bus back to the station. If you're looking to stay somewhere comfortable for a short time and is cheap, while close to the south station, this is adequate. If you're looking for a relaxing week stay this is not it.
“A Good Breakfast........... :-)”
A good and quiet location, with a good breakfast.........
“Missing item in the hotel.”
My friend and I had a very good time in the hotel. The only useful thing missing in the breakfast room was tray. As a buffet breakfast, trays are needed by customers to take their breakfast to their various seats. This will reduce the number of times people have to be wandering about in the breakfast room and thus prevent any accident whatsoever (such as spillage of food on the floor). I will be pleased to see this change when next I stay in this hotel.
“Medium quality but fair price compared to the others”
This hotel is fairly well located near the city centre and, although the area may look rough, there's nothing I reckon to be scared by. The cleanliness of the room was really good and the service was ok. Unfortunately I can't rate the breakfast as I had to leave before they open it at 7 AM.
“cheap and cheerful Brussels hotel”
Nothing fancy but clean rooms, reasonable breakfast, and convenient 10-minute walk from Metro station. Neighbourhood is working class and a bit run down but no problems.
“Good value for money”
