Easy hotel - near train station and fairly central in Brussels. Area itself is a bit up-and-coming (many explicit adult stores and prostitution around -- would not recommend taking young children around in the evening from this hotel) but for adults and business travel it is totally fine. Area looks like it is getting better and I was never worried about safety. Plenty of activity and people around at night.
Hotel needs to upgrade their printing and also change their soap - a '4 start' hotel should not have a single all-purpose soap dispenser attached to the shower wall. The rooms were well cleaned each day and the beds were adequate.
My first time in Europe... first time in Belgium... Hotel Bloom met all of my expectations of what I'm sued to in the States. The transition to European culture was made easier by staying at this hotel.
I wasn't expecting much when I had booked online because of the low room rates. However, as soon as I entered the room, I was pleasantly surprised. Clean and comfortable. Complimentary coffee and tea. If I didn't know, I'd think I was in a 4* hotel.
It's pretty close by to a metro station, a grocery store right underneath and plenty of restaurants on the same street. It's a little far from all the touristy areas but overall a great two nights. would definitely visit again.
"Nice Quiet Area Close to the Gare Noord, Brussels"
Very clean modern hotel with fine facilities an easy 10 minute walk to the Gare Noord railway and tram station. Also an easy 30 minute walk to the Grand Palace square area etc where there is an abundance of shops and eating places.
seems good! walking distance to the station and to the shopping area. not noisy, clean and comfortable. and the wifi netork is good too. there is a big shopping mall nearby. within 5 minutes walk to the convenience store.
Brussels’ smallest district, Saint-Josse-ten-Noode lies north-east of the city centre, near the Botanic Gardens and the Gare du Nord. It’s a lively, densely populated neighbourhood of North African and Turkish communities with lots of young people. Fruit stalls and ethnic restaurants provide plenty of local colour. Cultural happenings take place in La Botanique, an arts centre set in a 19th-century greenhouse.
