Stayed March 2007 - had previously tried to book but was always full.
This time I got an email asking to confirm reservation (no problem however as they said ours was confirmed but if for any reason we couldn't take it up they were full.)
However we were already on our way.
Tea and coffee facilities in the room - a nessessety for us.
The free wi-fi was good even if erratic
No the cheapest but difficult to fault- staff could not be faulted.
Location difficult to beat.
This hotel is in a great location on a very quiet side street near La Bourse and only a 5 minute walk away from the Grand Place. It’s near the China Town area where there are quiet a few Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Indian restaurants and also near the city’s fish market so there’s also some fish restaurants nearby.
I have to say that I enjoyed my stay here and the room I had was one of the quietest I’ve ever slept in. It was a good size and had a double bed, desk & chair, TV, mini-bar and two small arm chairs in the corner. The bathroom had all the usual amenities you’d expect in a modern 3 star hotel. What was good, (and I wish more hotels would do this), the room had a second door that closed off the bedroom from the entrance door and bathroom door so this made sleeping very peaceful.
Breakfast was the usual continental affair with cereals, breads, rolls, meat, cheese, jam, yoghurt, coffee & tea etc and is served in the basement which also has a small lounge area and internet access. All-in-all this is one of the best city centre hotels I’ve stayed in and is very well priced given its location.
Brussels is a business city and, therefore, you can get the best hotel rates in the weekends.
This particular hotel is very central, about a 5 min walk from Grand Place. The halls are decorated with paintings that are for sale, so I guess they change often.
We first got a quite nice room with blue walls, curtains and furniture, but tasteful, however it was on the ground floor and the view was bad. We asked for another room which we promptly got. It was on the third floor overlooking a side street, so not very good view, but at least there was light. In any case we went to see Brussels, not the hotel room, so it was more that good. I remember that it had some very nice pieces of furniture like a table in wrought iron.
The only complaint was the matress that was far too soft.
It has a garage, where I left my car since the rate of car thefts is quite high,
In any case, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is great, so overall it was a very good experience.
This excellent hotel features nice clean and quiet rooms, nice staff and an excellent location, 5 mn walk from the Grand Place, the heart of Brussels. The breakfast takes place in the basement in a room which walls are the old fortifications of Brussels! The rooms are standard and modern looking and comfortable. The square wher the hotel is located is very charming and quiet as well. I highly recommand this hotel.
A room for 2 people costs 115 euros during the week, and 79 euros during the week-end, taxes and breakfast included.
Unique Quality: This hotel has non-smoking rooms.
Directions: Rue Du Vieux Marche Aux Grains is a prolongation of Place Ste Catherine, less than 10 mn walk from Grand Place, NW of it.
The Atlas is small and friendly hotel in the central and fashionable St.Katherine area which is two minutes from Bourse metro station and four minutes from Grand'Place.
Our room was light and comfortable and to our relief didn't have the more formal, office-like ambience found in the more obviously business oriented hotels of Brussels. There is the usual buffet style breakfast which was good enough. Check their website for special offers which can give great reductions on room rates.
Directions: 2 minutes walk from Bourse metro station
Very friendly hotel. Nothing particularly special, but a good modern conversion, stylish, nice clean rooms and attractive location in a just off-tourist area currently undergoing regeneration (a bit like Hoxton in London). Good selection of restaurants and bars very close by, and only 10 mins walk from the Grand Place. Very good off-peak rates (currently €75.00 (about £50) per room per night for a double inc. breakfast, taxes and service) during the weekend and the summer.
We won't stay anywhere else - in fact, we've stayed here 10 times now!
