Five minute walk from the train station and 5 min walk to the Grand Place. Just far enough, away from the crowd, to have a good night sleep. Very beautiful hotel with a very nice and clean room for two. Had enough room to add a roll away bed and still be comfortable. Plenty of space in the bathroom and...

Well located - four stops on the metro from the Gare du Midi and right in the town centre. Nicely appointed, but both the public areas and the bedrooms are very dimly lit and very brown. Decent size room, large comfortable bed and fantastic shower. Service was pleasant and unobtrusive. Weird celestial music in the lift! The overall effect was...

I felt immediately at home in this beautifully restored building, a former Dominican monastery, right in the heart of central Brussels, at the back of the Grand Place. I booked one of their duplex ‘loft’ rooms for just under 230 Euros a night which was I thought was good value. It was really well designed, with tasteful modern / classic...

We (middle-aged couple) stayed for three nights in a deluxe room with extra large double bed. The room was cosy but dark, hardly any space to put two suitcases out of the way. No rack, no board or shelf to store anything away. The first let-down came upon arrival by car: The hotel cannot be accessed easily as the street...

There is a lot to like about this hotel. I booked it as part of a Eurostar weekend package from London and that made it affordable, and comparable with a lot of hotels that don't look as good as this one.

Very slightly underwhelmed! Good hotel right next to the opera House which was the purpose of our visit. But the staffing seemed pared to the bone - there was no offer of help with our bags to the room. We had a 'bog simple' room which was excellent and good value. Didn't dine in the hotel as they stopped serving...
