    Good

    Location was excellent in the good side of town. Near hilton/sheraton and 5min walk from grand place

    There was no kettle and no hairdryer which was a bit of a shock as both are something found in most hotels. I wouldnt stay there again because of these small things.

    Very good

    I like the old-fashioned style of the hotel and I come always back due to its location (close to Gare du Nord / Metro Rogier / not far from City Center) - although during busy periods the proce is definitely to high (more than 200 € with breakfast is not appropriate for the comfort which is offered)..

    The location is good. Near to the shops and centre (Grant Place) of the city. Nice service.

    The rooms above the street are very noisy. Trucks began to pass and stop in front of the hotel at 5:00 AM.

    City centre.

    I have been waken up twice and hours before the check out time to get the room cleaned. With closed door and windows, I could hear people in the next room talking. I have been in others hotels in the same area and never paid any city-tax or other fees apart from the booking fees.

    The location is good just behind the sheraton hotel in a quiet street and close to the main shopping street Rue Neuve.

    If you want to be treated like a dog, choose this hotel! check out was at 12 and I returned at 15 before 12 to find out that the roomkey did not work any more. I went down to reception who reactivated the card. Again went up with the superslow elevator and again card did not work. Went down again, reactivated card again, went up again and card still did not work. Then went down again and told the reception lady to come up and open the door. When I told her in the elevator there is problem with there doorlock system, she told me to shut up!. Can you imagine, instead of apologizing the customer is told to keep their mouth shut. Unheard, rude behavior. So if you like to be treated like a dog, visit this hotel............if not, chooce another one. For the same price there are many better ones around in the same area.
