Luxureous hotel, in room massage on request (E70/hr), fitness centre, good bar (free newspapers incl Dutch), great location on inner ring next to City2 shopping mall and beginning of shopping street Nieuwstraat, public parking & metrostation next door, 500m from Gare du Nord.
Breakfast is expensive (E25 p.p.) and is automatically added to the bill, you have to ask to take it off (if you didn't have it).
I liked the art nouveau design , the location and the discount price.
The airconditioning system did not worked properly or at all.
The free wifi internet access is a boon. It works well and is easy to use.
The hotel switched off it's heating rather early in the season and I could not use the heating part of my room's temperature control. I was uncomfortably cold and had to ask for a heater to be provided.
comfort and cleanliness
Very clean and quiet. Good exercise room I used on 3 occassions.
Based on my experience at other hotels in Brussels, i.e Sheraton, the breakfast was OK but nothing special. For example, no staff to prepare a freshly cooked omlet such as at the Sheraton and the Marriott.
