Convenient location & helpful staff
My stay was two days. The room was a good size and all the amenities worked. The reception staff were able to let me check in early on arrival, which was most helpful after my train journey from Cologne. I chose the hotel because it was close to the railway station, and is a name that I know. I didn't try the breakfast, I thought it a little pricey, but of course I didn't go and check what I was missing. Just a word of warning about the well-lit road that the hotel is on. There is a mugger operating there who rather too easily helped himself to my wallet at about 10pm just outside as I walked to the railway station. Keep your wallet in an inside pocket and don't go out alone at night is my advice. Specifically don`t let anyone get near to you. I was too naive to realise what he was doing with some kind of football move, when really he had my wallet and I didn't even feel it go. The hotel staff helped to call the police and let me call to cancel my cards. Next tip: don't have more cash than you need in your wallet, nor all of your cards or you won't be able to get more cash out. Mixed feelings about Brussels, but the hotel was good.
