Like many other reviewers, we arrived to Les Ecrins and were upgraded, free of charge, from a regular double room, to a HUGE 1 bedroom suite with a private patio. If a better room is available, Guy will give it to you. What a concept!! He does it right over there in Brussels. I would stay here again and again...

We booked Les Ecrins because of the many good reviews on TripAdvisor, especially in terms of service. Based on our experience, I can only recommend the single economy rooms. At 65 euros per night with bathroom and including breakfast, they are a very good deal for Brussels. However, for 85 (standard single) or 95 (standard double) euros per night, you’ll...

My two friends and I (college age) just got back from traveling three months in Europe. Tight budget but we didn’t want hostels. This was on a pretty white washed alley with cobblestones and a five-ten minute walk from the Grand Place....pretty nice part of town, and at the end of the alley is a huge and beautiful church. Rooms...

We had no idea when we booked how close it was to the fabulous Christmas market! 1/2 block away! That was the icing on the cake. We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely comfortable room, great breakfasts and a very entertaining proprietor, Eddie. We stayed for 3 nights and really did not want to leave. It's in a great neighborhood near...

Les Ecrins is a great choice if you are looking for a relaxed, familiar, quite, clean and central place in Brussels. It´s near St Cathrine place, one of my favourite areas in Brussels. It´s a very good value for your money if you don´t prefer a fancy place. I will certainly come back!

Each destination has its own hidden gem, for Brussels this is the one. Very friendly staff who accommodate ALL our needs. Our apartment was clean with full kitchen, comfy beds and of decent size compared to European standards. It was located in the 5th floor and unfortunately there is no elevator in the building, so for those with limited physical...

I think this is a really nice hotel for what we pay. It's clean, the breakfast is good and and so Brussels. The men at the office are quite funny even though we woke them many times when we came back of the club... Really, it was a good place!

We stayed in a self catering apartment and had a mixed review. Pros: centrally located near transport, restaurants and a supermarket, friendly and helpful staff, clean and tidy with excellent daily cleaning and well equipped kitchen. Air conditioning and heating and modern bathroom and kitchen. Self catering in Brussels saved us lots of money - restaurants were very pricey!! Cons:...

It is close to St. Catherine metro, and a good location to go to many other places by walking. The room wasn't anything fancy, but it was comfortable and clean, we were on the top floor, so alot of stairs, but we knew this, 75 euros a night was very reasonable! Would stay there again!

I cannot comment on the quality of this accomodation as thank goodness I have had the fortune of NOT staying with them. I had to write this review as I am so angry about how I was treated in email correspondence with them. I logged on to their website to enquire about booking for a date in November. When I...
