I only stayed one night, as I was on a trip back from Bruges to the UK, and decided to stay the night in Brussels so as to be nearer the airport for my return home.Being close to Brussels Nord railway station it was ideal for what I wanted. But as others have commented the area the hotel is in is not so pleasant, I wouldn't have liked to have been in the surrounding area after dark. It is near the red light area saw two ladies of the night on display in a 'shop' window and various establishments of a dubious nature close by. Area also very run down with a bit of a ghetto feel to it. I wouldn't choose this part of Brussels for a holiday!
Having said that the hotel was comfortable reception staff pleasant, I chose a small single room which wasn't as small as I had expected, and it had good en suite facilities, TV, coffee making facilities, clock radio alarm and a comy single bed, ideal for a place to put your head down for the night.

This is an excellent hotel. Very quiet. Quite arty with a lot of art from Gustav Klimt - all very nice to look at. I booked a room with seating area as we travelled with our baby. The room was really big and very comfy. We all loved it.
The Progress hotel is tucked away,near the Sheraton Hotel.Staff were very helpful,and welcoming.The interior was bright and calming.
Nice to have security cards for the doors and lift.
Beautiful room/bathroom.Nice touches included,toiletries,pen and paper,Nepresso coffee machine(most welcome),kettle,and really comfortable bed.
This Hotel is so central-not far to good eating places,and the fab shopping centre.
If,like Sandra,you are on kidney diyalysis,it is near to Clinique St Jean.
Def stay there again.
The hotel is close to the metro station Rogier which puts it in an ideal location to access most of Brussels. It is a 10 minute walk to the grand place and is ideal. Surrounded by a couple of great restaurants and minutes from small cafés. The room was excellent (it was decorated very green!) however the lift was small and could only take one person and luggage before saying overweight- it must have been the waffles and chocolate! We could only get the wifi to work on one device out of 3, but this did not detract from the experience. Overall, an excellent budget hotel.
The hotel is located close to the Brussels North train station and only takes about 15 minutes to walk into to the city center (Grand Place area). The staff was very friendly and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable.
Great location, next to the city center, great for shopping, for visiting, everything you desire.
Great breakfast, clean room, they even have an ironing room, great staff, very helpful. Definitely go back with pleasure. Strongly recommend it.
