A first class experience

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 5, 2006

We came on the Eurostar to the Gare du Midi and from the adjoining bus station took the 27 bus to Place Grand Sablon where the hotel is situated, this took 10 minutes and cost 1.5 euros - you can pay on the bus.

The Place Grand Sablon is an upmarket area with lots of cafes and restaurants, it's just around the corner from a lot of major museums and a 10 minute walk down to the Grand Place.

At reception we were given a friendly and welcoming greeting and got upgraded to a larger room (room no. 452) which had a really huge double bed (two doubles joined together), 2 night tables, 2 club chairs and table, desk and chair, modern TV with good reception, Tea & Coffee, minibar (expensive), roomy wardrobe and chest of drawers, place for suitcases, well appointed en-suite bathroom with bath and shower over and an extra lower shower spray to wash your hair in the bath, bidet, hair dryer.

I particularly liked the card key system which gives guests access only to the hotel bedroom floor on which they are staying - very good security indeed.

The reception staff were excellent in answering questions, giving assistance and making local restaurant suggestions.

The doormen were also very helpful in looking after our bags after we checked out.

When we visit Brussels next we will certainly want to stay with them again and would recommend them.

We paid £236 (340 euros) for 3 nights but this did not include breakfast.

The buffet breakfast for 15 euros was excellent and included sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs and mushrooms as well as a good selection of breads, rolls, toast, cereals, fruits and juices.

Unique Quality: Opposite the hotel is Le Pain Quotidien where for around 9 euros each you can get for a very French Breakfast served around a large table shared with 20 people (there is individual table seating as well). The fixed price breakfast include tea or coffee, a glass of juice, a boiled egg, a croissant, a large roll, 3 slices of bread; on the table you will find lots of jars of jams, honey and chocolate spread - an interesting experience.

We ate twice at a nearby bar/restaurant (estaminet ?) called Skievalatt http://www.skievelat.be/ reasonably priced, nice atmosphere, friendly service.

The hotel also recommend Manneken in Rue au Beurre off the Grand Place and we weren't disappointed there either.

If you like museums and galleries the 11 euro two-day pass is good but better still for 30 euros is the 3 day museum pass which includes Bus, Tram & Metro Travel - bargain !

The Tram system is superb and if you have a daily pass it's fun to get out of the center and see other parts of Brussels; one night we took the 94 to Wiener with the intention of visiting the foret de soignes but instead came across Ciccio-Bello, a nice little Italian restaurant - the Pizza was really good, thin crust and lots of toppings.

Well there you are, this started off as a hotel review and ended up a travelogue.

Enjoy Brussels - we did !
