Motel One: Always Excellent
We stayed in Motel One for the first time in Edinburgh and we loved it. When I saw they have one in Brussels I immediately booked it. Stunning, basic but a chic cool feeling. You can't go wrong with German efficiency.
Affordable and basic but with a luxury feel. I don't know how they do it. The only thing I missed was the coffee in the room, but you can go downstairs to the bar for coffee.

Hotel Welcome: Hotel Welcome
Hotel welcome was very friendly. We arrived early and although our room'was not ready they let us keep our bags there and gave us a map and some suggestions on where to go, what to see etc. The room itself was the china room... Deluxe version. It was just under the room so the ceiling was slanted and we had two roof windows which we could open.that was nice when it got hot... Bathroom was obviously new. The bath with the jets was great once the water was in the bath. At times the water almost stopped pouring so it took a while...
We had an unexpected wakeup call at 7 in the morning which was not welcome We had set our own alarm for much later. We had had a late night and a long day previously so we were not happy at being woken up...the room itself was ok. There were cables everywhere and a plug for the lamp was broken. It was also two single beds pushed together to make a double....and some of the furniture was a bit shabby....we also were only given coffee in the room and not tea which I would have liked...

St Gilles: Apartment Rental
We rented a wonderful basement apartment in the proud St Gilles district of Brussels. The owners, a lovely Algerian/Belgian couple, collected us from the train station and presented us with a large, clean, comfortable apartment fitted with everything you need. Unlike some apartments I've rented, this felt like it was meant to be lived in. The owners even donated some toys for our toddler that belonged to their own grandchildren. A very pleasant experience.
St Gilles is a relaxed former working class neighbourhood just outside the centre of Brussels. The houses are tightly squeezed together, and the place felt relatively friendly compared to the rest of the city. Here you find tiny balconies with potted flowers on painted iron railings, converted warehouses, and lots of little cafes.

L'hotel du Stone: One hard mattress
One can always pass out on the streets. The guy didn't look comfortable, but then again he wasn't complaining.....The morning breeze, as it wafts through your open windows, brings the smell of espresso brewing in the local coffee house, as you awaken (maybe) to the pitter patter sound of locals on their way to work. Or you vaguely pick up the sound of a camera shutter, pointed at you by some rude tourist, catching you in your moment of morning glory.
The street view is even better than google map's "street view"..

Izan Avenue Louise Hotel: Izan Avenue Louise
This was a perfectly comfortable and acceptable hotel for a short break in Brussels. I stayed here for 3 nights and had a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed on all of them. The hotel was clean and the room was spacious. The furnishings are getting a little dated and kitschy for my taste but since I got such a good price I wasn't likely to mind the decor!
The breakfast wasn't included in the package I'd booked and was advertised online at €22 per person per breakfast (which I would never pay - it's just too much!) so I was very pleased when I checked in and was told that actually the price was €12 per day for breakfast. I was happy to pay this price and although it's still a little steep for breakfast it was a good breakfast that I got for my money.
My French is dreadful so it was very helpful that most of the staff here seem to speak excellent English.
The location is quite good too. For this sort of price and standard of accomodation anyway. It was just under 5 minutes walk to Stephanie tram stop on lines 92 or 94, or just over 5 minutes to Bailli tram stop on line 81 (which goes direct to Gare du Midi). Trams 92 and 94 both connect with the metro at Louise and at Parc.

Brussels Hello Hostel: Hello Hostel
I spent two nights this August with my niece in this hostel. In fact, we stayed in a female only dorm close by. There were 3 bunk beds in our big room and a table with some chairs, but no wardrobes or shelves. There were 2 bathrooms for the whole house, a toilet and a shower together, so you can imagine the crowd, especially in the morning!
We had basic breakfast (7-11 a.m.) in the main building: bread or croissants with jam, butter, milk or juice.
We also used a shared kitchen in the main building and enjoyed our hot soup at the patio, watching the pictures of artists painted by Leticia Sere.

Youth Hostel Van Gogh CHAB: Fit for a Van Gogh
I've stayed in this hostel twice so far.
Last time, this July, I was with my niece. We stayed 3+2 nights in a 4-bed-female dorm on the third floor. We had bunk beds, an open wardrobe and a washbasin in our room. There were showers (male and female separated) and a toilet on the same floor.
Breakfast was included in the price and was in the main building: 5 slices of bread, cheese, salami, jam, chocolate cream, butter, tea, milk or juice.
We also used the kitchen in the main building.
By the way, the main building with the reception is at 8, Rue Traversiere. You'll see flags and a signpost.

Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Midi: Best stay ever
The main reason what we chose this hotel is the situation, in front of Gare du Midi station so we didn´t have to walk and didn´t have take public transport and the good critics read on internet. The hotel has 142 rooms furnished in very nice style and modern, are confortables and quiet, around it are offices so at night are very silent, no noise around it. Breakfast was include on our tariff and you can choose between hot and cold breakfast, eggs, bacon, mushrooms, sausages, toast, breadrolls, pastries, cereals, fruits, etc. About internet conection i read that they have a daily rate, we didn´t use it but in the reception area and restaurant there is a free wifi. In Receptiion there is a screem with a real time table of international trains leaving from Gare du Midi. The staff is very friendly and help you all you need. No doubt i choose this hotel if i go back to Brussels.
La razón principal por la que elegimos este hotel es por estar en frente de la estacion de midi y por las buenas criticas que leimos en internet. El hotel lleva abierto poco mas de 1 año, tiene 142 habitaciones, están muy bién decoradas y son muy tranquilas, nada de ruido por las noches, está rodeado de oficinas que trabajan de lunes a viernes. El desayuno iba inculuido en nuestra tarifa y es de lo mas completo, puedes elegir entre desayuno caliente o frio y hay donde elegir entre huevos, bacon, salchichas, champiñones, tostadas, bollos, cereales, bollería, etc. Sobre conexión a internet lei que tenian una tarifa de 7 euros, pero en el area de recepción y del bar hay wifi gratis. Tras el mostrador de recepción hay una pantalla en la que te ofrecen a tiempo real los horarios de trenes internacionales que sale de Gare du Midi. El personal muy atento, te ayudan lo que necesitas.

CHARMING ESCAPE B & B: BED & BREAKFAST
February 29, 2012
As we had a 15 hour layover in Brussels, we needed a place to stay overnight. We chose the CHARMING ESCAPE BED & BREAKFAST as it was close to the airport and our charming host Guy Evenepoel, picked us up and brought us back to the airport.
As soon as we arrived in Brussels, we phoned Guy and he promptly picked us up near the Taxi Stand. The drive to his B & B was about 20 minutes, as traffic was a little busy. The B & B is located in a quiet neighborhood in the town of Steenokkerzeel.
Guy's lovely wife Ann, was there to greet us and show us to our room. Our room was beautiful with two single beds (Pics # 2 & #3), TV, sitting area, computer desk ( free Wi-Fi), mini-fridge stocked with beverages that you can buy and an adjoining bathroom (Pic # 4) with shower and double sinks, all very modern. Towels and shampoo were provided.
The cost was 100 Euros (cash requested). Breakfast was extra at 10 Euros per person per night. We did not take the breakfast as we had an early morning international flight. But Ann was kind enough to bring us a tray with coffee to our room in the morning.
We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Charming Escape Bed & Breakfast, but I do have a couple of concerns. Our room was located on the top floor of the house and there were many narrow, winding stairs to get up there. Glad we didn't have our big suitcases with us. The B & B was located in a quiet neighborhood with mostly houses. There were no restaurants within walking distance - we did not have a car.

Max Hotel: I got to hand it to MAX!
This hotel falls into the cheap chic category. You basically pay for only what you need beyond the room itself. The only downside is that you'll feel like you've just stayed in a very well-kept vending machine for your entire stay since most of the add-ons (e.g. an extra towel or pillow, wireless) are purchased from one of the vending machines on the first floor. Check-in has also been de-personalized to the point that you use the self-serve kiosks (you can accept or decline daily maid service at this point). There is a Lobby agent to assist but they simply direct you back to the monitors to complete your check-in if there is a problem. Make sure to have your reservation number with you since this will expedite matters. There is a significant cost advantage (less 15%) to pre-paying for your stay. There is also a change machine in the Common Room if you forget your coins.
Located on the scruffy fringe of the Brussels Nord Red Light district, there is nothing seedy about this immaculately cleaned property. It is only a 5 minute walk to Brussel Nord station and barely a 7 minute walk to the central Bourse neighborhood- ideal! the windows are well insulated from even Boulevard Adolphe Max noise but I could hear some rumbles from other rooms. The only thing that may really get under your skin is the re-curring "Max" figure that frolics throughout the public areas- you'll feel like you've just been taken hostage by the "meeples" from the Carcaonne board game!
**Make sure to pick up the free map to the City available in the common room. It is the easiest to use and has the simplest outline of the mass transit system**

The Institute of Cultural Affairs: A tasteful dormitory of sorts
This is a place of welcome and convenience and at a fair price (53 Euros per night). A cross between a guest house and a boarding school dormitory. In a lousy neighborhood BUT just a block from the Madou metro stop which will take you every where. Most of the tenants are here on internships and in work-study situations. Found out about this place through the Quakers since I figured they know all the safe, thrifty places to stay!
Basically, small SRO rooms but decent furnishings. All with shared bath and showers. I especially enjoyed my room # 3. There are nice common rooms and a pleasant breakfast area, too. A longer stay would be nice since the tenants seem to bond with each other after awhile. Kind of like the old hotels NYC used to have for people needing the basics. The staff is especially dedicated. Anna has been there approaching 30+ years. Truly, a shared community committed to what their brochure calls "voluntary simplicity".

NH Hotel du Grand Sablon: Fantastic location
We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. The room had been recently renovated and was comfortable and cheery with all the modern amenities. Service was excellent as was the location - away from more touristy and busy, hectic areas like the Grand Place. We booked through hotels.com and seemed to get a better rate than the hotel's own website.
The hotel is situated on a lovely 'place,' full of good restaurants and shops. It was an easy walk to get to everywhere we wanted to go. The Grand Place was 10 minutes away. The Central Station was also about a 10 minute walk with easy access for trains to Bruges. The Eurostar terminal was a €9 or 10 ride.

Hilton Brussels: Good, and a bargain in winter
I'm sure it isn't quite the poshest hotel in Brussels, but it's still very good. Large bedrooms, fabulous breakfast - after that you don't need any lunch - helpful staff and an excellent bar. It's about ten minutes' walk from the Grand' Place, and convenient for trains too. I was there in January, when Hilton do amazing weekend offers, and I thought it was a great bargain.
Really good bar, great breakfast
