Hot water, on sunday it was desactivated
Central and easy to find. Friendly staff.
There were used food cartons in my wardrobe (smelled of garlic and olive oil), and the general cleaning was a bit poor. Sticky surfaces on drawer units and floor suggest cleaning is restricted to bed changing (very clean) and shower area (very clean and nice).
very good price, central location near all the shops, spacious clean room
Entrance to hotel is from a small lane behind shops. It was a little intimidating - hard to know for a foreigner if it is safe - but turned out to be fine. Hotel is very old and is being refurbished rather clumsily. Has a potential of being much nicer. No lift but staff offered to carry suitcase upstairs. Telephone not working, no remote for the TV (very small screen). No Wi-Fi- of course!
Excellent location at very cheap (as for Brussels) prices. Suprisingly, it is a quite place. Rooms are exteremely simple and poorly equiped, but relatively large and clean.
Mirror lacking in my room. The breakfasts were just basic, however I believe this a general problem, i.e. not specific to this hotel, with 'continental breakfasts'. I stayed in early April and it was OK, but most rooms are likely to be too hot in summer since they only have windows facing a sort of inner courtyard, which is covered by a glass roof!
The daytime staff seemed friendly and helpful.
The nighttime staff were very unhelpful and unwelcoming. The rooms were of a very low standard, particularly in terms of cleanliness. Some of them smelt really bad.
