It is a 2 star hotel located in the heart of Brussels, with the closest Metro stop being the Bourse (only 250 meters away). One can enter through a gate that opens onto a courtyard where the reception is. When we went it was near Christmas time and it was decorated. The rooms are not too big but the hotel in general is very good, especially for its location.
The first time I traveled to Brussels I stayed at the Bedford Hotel Brussels, which is a 4 star hotel that is a bit old, but still very convenient. It´s not easy to find a hotel in the center of Brussels at an affordable price. Its location is unbeatable: it is less than a 5 minute walk from L'Etuve Street (where you can find the Manneken Pis) and costs 55 € per night (for a double room) with breakfast included. The truth is that the hotel is not bad, although it is quite old, which can be clearly seen in its decor (lots of marble and gold) and outdated furniture. But we were very lucky, because although we had booked a double room, we were given a sort of quadruple room. I mean, they were two rooms connected (although one had no window), each with two 90cm beds. The bathroom was also quite spacious with a large tub and double sink. It is a very large hotel, with 326 rooms, conference rooms, a large conference center, business center, gym, piano bar, parking for 200 vehicles and a small shop. The breakfast room was huge (they also do banquets) and the breakfast was pretty stocked-up with all kinds of pastries, assorted meats, natural fruit juices, assorted breads, yogurt, etc.. If you don´t mind staying in a hotel a little bit old, the Bedford is a good choice for you.
This is an excellent hotel located in a long avenue in downtown Brussels, a 10 minute walk of the historic building of the Exchange, and the corresponding Metro called 'Burse' (Bag), allowing very comfortable and easy access to go to the famous Grand Palace and the rest of the city's nerve center. It's a business hotel-modern and functional. The double rooms, or single use in my case, are quite spacious, with twin beds together, comfortable mattress, a well equipped bathroom, heating, quite spacious closet and a desk with chair, with space to work well with a laptop. Complimentary WIFI on the floor where I was the scope was good, and the password is on your card :). On the negative side of the room, the TV was pretty old and the glass partition in the bathroom doesn't prevent floods when you shower. The ground floor of the hotel where the reception and the breakfast room is very nice with a relaxing space as a room right at the entrance, with comfortable leather sofas that invite conversation, which also must be a kind of bar, but we weren't there long enough to find out. The front desk people are super attentive and help you in everything you ask them, plus they ask you immediately where you're from and they spoke Spanish to us from the beginning. The breakfast is complete with sweet and savory options. The breakfast area is very bright and pleasant. Assuming that all hotels in Brussels are expensive, this is one more within that group, if I'm not mistaken, the night around 150 €, but the excellent location and the level of comfort it offers, compared with other pricing options. In short, a business-traveler hotel or for people of high purchasing power who can afford certain luxuries, comfortable and modern, equipped with Free WiFi, has a privileged location near the metro stop 'Burse' (Bag), but is expensive, very expensive in my opinion. Finally, a detail I did not like related to the price: even though we paid well in advance we had to pay 7 and change per night for tourist charges. Not sure if it's a Brussles thing or just from this hotel. Either way, it's robbery. If you travel business class and can afford to pay these prices, it is a very good option, even considering similar hotels in the area, but not a hotel for a traveler or normal tourist, which is what we usually are, and always try to look for cheaper options.
We had been told it was near the Central Station, but we didn't realise how close it was - just a 3 minute walk away. The guy at the reception was very friendly and welcoming. We got our keys and went up to our room; to our surprise it was two floors, with very steep stairs. The bed was upstairs, the bathroom and closet below. It was a little uncomfortable, but not too bad. The best thing about the hotel is its location, close to everything (4 min from the Grand Place). The worst thing was the pillow, which was very uncomfortable. We asked to change them, but they brought us more of the same.
A good enough hotel with heating, a fine bathroom, super clean sheets and a room that just barely passes (47 euros with breakfast). If you have to pay more look at other things. The neighborhood is Arabic but like everything the center of Brussels, a little here a little there, but the rest is full of young women with scarves and people of all colors. I didn't hear any noises at night and felt safe. I came in at 20:00 and went to eat at a nearby bar (alast chicken) and did not die in the attempt (which is not the Bronx in its heyday). The stop is right next Clemenceau.
