The internet did not work from my room. It was advertised as having WIFI but in reality the signal was not strong enough to reach my room. I had to sit in the hallway to use the internet. When I approached the owner about this and asked for some discount on the price of the hotel I was completely denied.
I liked its central location, the friendly staff and the breakfast in the bedroom.
The fact that the internet connection was not always reliable.
The location is excellent right in the city center. It is nearby all the main attractions and the staff is very friendly. Recommended is to speak one or two words of french.
Stairs are narrow, breakfast only in the room.
Very close to all sites, ie; mannekem pis, grote, etc. waffel district around the hotel! lol! cant get more downtown than this!
Great location, wonderful they bring breakfast in your room. Right in the heart of town. Nice family run place and good pubs outside. It was charming. Room was clean and simple. Stayed in better places but had best time here.
Its small and had no lobby (storefront is lobby) so it's a little pricey for the size. But great location if you're a tourist. Just in front of Mannekin Pis and near the center of town.
Hotel is located in central Brussels and is cheaper than one would usually find in this location.
I think in summer it would not be ideal since one would have to open the windows and it's a little noisy outside.
So close to all attractions plus although "basic" it was clean and secure
Room was maybe 50 feet from Mannekin Pis (sp?). Small, family run hotel (6 rooms). They asked you what time you wanted breakfast brought to your room and were absolutely punctual, to the minute. Only 2 blocks from the Grand Plas. Also, only a couple blocks from Gare Central. Great location. Would stay again no problem.
Only negative thing to say is that the kid that let us in and gave us our key didn't speak English very well, but that is hardly a negative, and certainly not his fault. I was in HIS country! Cheers!
The location, the price.
The noise during the night: twice a very noisy garbage passed in front of my room, and twice a very noisy group of tourists paased in fron of my room. So the room need to be isolated against noise. There was no shampoo in the bathroom, although I did get it in the end.
