Booked based on the chain fame and a special offer. The best thing is its central location. There are several museums/attractions within walking distance (Beaux Arts, Magritte, MIM, Grand Place, Grand Sablon etc.) and the hotel is relatively quiet even though opposite Gare Central which can also be convenient for those using trains. It was also a nice surprise to find free tickets in the room to exhibitions in Bozar.
Unfortunately there were a lot of negatives that were unpleasant to say the least from such a hotel chain, these things surely cannot be accepted in a 5 star hotel. To start with...we arrived at 01:30am and nobody asked if we needed help with luggage (we didn't but they should have asked at least!). Then we had to ask bath slippers from reception!! I also did not like the fact that they blocked a 3-digit amount from my credit card as "guarantee" even though accomodation was fully pre-paid (not done by other hotels in its category). As most European hotels they also had expensive breakfast and worst enough there was no dining option....Furthermore, the on-going renovations are not such a nice picture and the entrance doors and corridor carpets look old. Overall it is by no chance a five star hotel at the moment....but is good for its central location. It does need urgent refurbishement to keep up with its stars.
