"Average hotel, a title out of the town centre."
Arrived at Brussels Midi at midday, took a taxi to the hotel, €10. On arrival at the hotel, the staff were friendly and attentive, our room was not ready, so we left our bags at reception and walked along Avenue Louise, a very bland road with very little to see or do. On return to the hotel, we were offered our room (104). The room itself was, large and well designed, we had the good fortune of having a nice sized roof terrace, with table and chairs overlooking the courtyard. The bathroom was average for this type of hotel, however the toiletries were very limited. On checking the mini bar, this too was not only limited in stock, but also had the remains of the previous occupants half drank water. On further inspection, the two chairs in our room, had some strange stains, as did the carpet and panels in the bathroom, there were some areas of chipped paint work, which I would not normally experience in this standard of hotel. The hotels location is a little far away from anything interesting, we were there Sunday and Monday, the shops in the area (Mont Blanc and Tiffany) were both closed when we passed nod the walk to the Grand Place area is a good 20 minutes and the return journey is uphill all the way. A taxi in each direction is €10. Brussels itself is not most exciting city, a small area around the Grand Place is ok to sit and have a drink but a day visit would suffice. Do not waste your time with the main shopping area (city2) it is just like any other low end high street
