"Gd location just off m-way but on industrial estat"
Hotel is well located next to the Brussels ring road and the motorway to Brugges/Calais. It is off the motorway and I didn't hear any noise from road. It is in the middle of an industrial estate, and hence no places to visit in walking distance. Easy to drive into the centre of Brussels. Not a good location for public transport into Brussels.
Breakfast was good in a decent looking restaurant.
I would use again if visiting the same client in that part of Brussels.

The 3-star hotel Gosset is located on the Ring of Brussels. The city centre is barely 10 minutes drive away. There is an easy …More
Although difficult to get to if you don't know the area and aren't willing to pay for a taxi, we found the Hotel Phenix to be great value for money and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and provided us with information on how best to get to attractions using public transport.
The Hotel Phenix is in a noisy area and traffic could be heard from our room which backed onto the main road, but most rooms were facing the other direction so this would not be as much of a problem for most. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable.
Not many restaurants/attractions nearby but a 15 minute walk from Gare l'ouest with several bus routes stopping within a 5 minute walk. Public transport was easier to navigate than in UK so was not a problem.
The hotel is quite dated, more or less clean, but it's a 2* hotel so we didn't expect much; we just needed a place to sleep and a hot shower close to some friends' apartment, and we got that for a reasonable price. It would've been nicer if there was a shower curtain and if the heating was working but I suppose they turn the heating off in April, and it wasn't unbearably cold. We had a twin room, the beds were not so comfortable, but we had a view to the basilica and the park, and we were quite pleased with that despite the traffic noise. The location is not central, but it's only a 5-10 minute walk through the Elisabethpark to the Simonis underground station (the high street is only three stops away, at Rogier). We also walked to the city centre and it took us about 30-45 min, so it's not that bad. There's not much to do in the area, but there are a few good bakeries around and the hotel restaurant downstairs. The staff are friendly enough, and we generally felt very safe, as there were permanently two armed policemen / military in front of the hotel.
“Very nice and spacy apartment, excellent for stay. Good location quote close to the city centre, easy to find, lots of shops around. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was good and the Wi-Fi was solid.”
Travelling with 4 other females. It was difficult to get the direction to Meininger Hotel as the customer service at the station was very unhelpful and lost in translation, despite of being deaf so we got the taxi instead which come to €12.
When we went inside the hotel, the atomsphere was great and the help desk was very helpful and straightforward. They do have a little kitchen upstairs for making your own meals. Bear in mind, plates are limited and no cups available just glass.
The room we are staying is the dormitory room for 6 people but only 5 of us so that ideals but must be over 18.
Breakfast is quite steep for €7.90 per day but you can make sandwich and take it with you for lunch. I will prefer if you have breakfast on your last day if your flight is in the evening.
I highly recommend to go to Atomium and Mini Europe. It will be better to get the Metro from Rogier and get off at Heysel tickets cost £4.20 return.
At night time, go to Groat Market as all lights are lit up within the buildings. Sorry I didn't take any pictures but go and see it for yourself.
To answer the above question, its more of a hostel than a hotel because the room we are staying do not have kettle, cups, iron with ironing.
Overall they do have a bar, snack machine and somewhere to relax. Also
The Atomium, a true Brussels icon, modeled on an iron atom magnified 165 billion times, rewards those who take the lift to the top sphere with panoramic views of Brussels. At its feet, see all the sights of Europe in just a few hours in a scaled-down version of the continent at Mini-Europe. Celebrate surrealism at the René Magritte Museum, in the very house where the painter lived and worked.
