The Hotel was in an excellent location about 100 metres from the Grande Place. A 3*** though should serve a proper breakfast instead of this self certified "Grab and bite" in a snack bar area. The central heating was noisy and went on and off at regular intervals. Receptionist tried to charge for two "Grab and bite" items I hadn't had and wouldn't let me settle my bill until I'd vacated my room!

The place is good for the money you pay in advance registrated with Venere.com (much more expensive on the spot)! The back room was quiet! Clean, spatious, great bed! The lady on the front desk is from Barcelona - always ready to advice, organize and help - frendly!!!In the center of the town, near train station - all on foot! No breakfast - only coffe, tea and croissants - but it was acceptable! I will go there again!

It was very convenient close to supermarkets and restaurants Grand Place. I had thought to go out for the night and try to go so departed one woman, but I was able to also see Grand Place Grand Place at night because it was so close. I also was visible tower of City Hall of Grand Place from the window of the room because I was the top floor. Evening, the sound of various musical instrument is heard when I open the window, it was really good. Between sunset from about 18:00, the room is the setting sun was hot plug just because it was in July. free-wifi only place of breakfast and the front of the first floor. It is an additional charge in the room. The breakfast, I can grab a coffee and bread in the 1-4 euros. I was there as well as sweets elsewhere.

My wife and I stayed one evening at the Alma Grand Place. The location is all right, except that the website and our GPS couldn't pinpoint the actual hotel location correctly, which is actually inside a pedestrian-only zone. The hotel itself was okay - kind of dated decor - but we had some issues with the room. It was extremely hot; a later visit to the desk indicated that staff had not "activated" the A/C or ventilation when we arrived. The room was somewhat small, although fairly typical for budget European hotels. Questions to the staff - for instance, regarding where to find nearby tourist sites like the "Mannequin Pis" - were answered incorrectly, even though the statue is actually less than 2 blocks away. All the reception staff smoked also, even inside the lobby. All in all, our stay was okay, but we would likely choose a different place next time.

Unfriendly and unhelpful staff! I visited the reception of the Aris hotel, which is the same chain, same price and same quality, and the staff there were much more helpful. The room was spacious, clean and modern, but as Brussels was experiencing cold weather the temperature was below comfortable levels and there were no extra blankets in the room. Even though the cleaning lady must have noticed I used all the blankets and covers available every night (I had a double bed by myself), she did not put any extra ones in the room. Wifi is expensive, €5 per hour (20 per day? Don't quite remember). I rather went to the Exki just around the corner and got it for free. Also, isolation is obviously not a priority, because I could hear the room upstairs like they were standing besides my bed. All in all, the room was very nice, but the service was much less than I expected. You can very well book this hotel, but you must manage on your own. Do not rely on any service from the employees!

Hotel is ideally located for Grand Place, Tour buses, Metro and large selection of excellent restaurants and cafes. The nearest ones are within 30m of the hotel. If its seafood your after then Rue de Bouchers is within a 10 minutes walk. The hotel staff were courteous, polite and helpful at all times. Having arrived hours before check in time we were allowed to leave our bags in locked room until our return later in the day. We did the same after checking out. We were surprised at the size, quality and cleanlinless of our room and would have no hesitation in returning in the future.

On the plus side, hotel is very near grand place. very quiet location. The old gentleman at reception is very warm. Negative- the room is damp and furnitures very old and dated. bed is uncomfortable and pillows are tiny. the comforter is very dirty and full of stains. internet at 5euro per hour is extremely expensive. Tv channels are very few. No cnn or bbc news. bathroom shower is enclosed only with a curtain so bathroom floor becomes very wet.

Located mere steps from the Grand Place and within walking distance of almost all of central Brussels' main attractions, the first huge advantage of this hotel is its location. It was great to end a night of dining and drinking and not have to deal with transit or cabs; but rather stroll through the illuminated Grand Place. We spent two nights at Alma and the staff was always friendly and helpful. For its location and price, the rooms were surprisingly very clean and well appointed. As a budget traveler, I've found that one often sacrifices quality for location. Not so with Alma. The only reason I would not recommend this hotel is because I would not want their rates to increase. The price to value ratio is excellent.

Starting with the negative: The room was very spacious but in fact very "uncosy", with perhaps 4 m to the roof, huge windows, naked grayish walls and relatively sparse furniture in a style that made me think of airports in the seventies. Also the room was on the cold side but not cold enough to complain about and perhaps understandable with as sudden shift in temperature to the minus side of the Celsius scale. The huge window opening to a small street in the city center contributed to some nose from people in the street during night. There was no useful lobby. Internet access worked excellently, but the price of 5 Euro for 1 our is on the robbery level. On the positive side: The location is terrific close to Grand place and the Central station, the place is clean and well kept with decent but perhaps overpriced breakfast buffet. The staff was friendly. And the bottom line of course – the price during the weekend was quite all right.

A newly renovated hotel deeply inside the centre of Bruxelles!!! We spent only one night in the hotel but we have appreciated the cleanless and the new furnitures of the rooms, the silence of the room and the very central position of the hotel. 3 minutes walking to "Grand Place", 5 minutes walking to the Cathedral, "Manneken Pis" and to the others monuments of the oldtown. Recommended!

The hotel is ideally located in the heart of Brussels, 3 minutes walk to Grand Place and 5 minutes walk to the Central Station. The room was really quite and clean and the staff at the reception very polite, smiley and helpful; I asked the receptionist if he knows whether there is a strike in the trains and he immediately called to check. I didn't like the fact that we were paying 150 euros per night and breakfast was not included. We knew that in advance but I think it is outrageous for this price the breakfast not to be included. There was no need to access internet, so I cannot comment on that.

The hotel is pretty well located, on a walking distance from majors touristic attractions. Besides being close to the busy Grand Place and surroundings, it's amazingly quiet giver it's location on a small street without car traffic. The main flaw is that Internet access is quiet expensive. The staff is for sure professional. However, it could have been more warm. Overall it's for sure a great value for money.

I had an odd room; it had a small desk area and the bathroom, then a small (and a little dangerous to navigate) stairway took me up to the bedroom. The bathroom had plenty of room, so I don't know why they used such a small shower - typical for Europe. I couldn't turn around without hitting the handle and either freezing or scorching myself. There's not really a lobby and the breakfast area was adequate. Food was average, light continental. Location was excellent, right in the heart of Grand Place. The wireless access was 30/day 50/week, but I got my money back because it worked horribly. This is the reason I wouldn't return - I need reliable internet access when traveling for business. BTW, I had some friends at the Ibis down the street and it appeared to be a little nicer, including larger lobby with bar, etc. Wish I would've stayed there.

I stayed 3 nights and could not use tv. No minibar in the room, and no bar or possibility to buy snacks at the hotel. Toilet seat so close to the shower that you have to keep feet on the shower area.

I travelled with my mother, this was our first time in Brussels. The hotel was very easy to find, very central. Once you come out of Gare Centrale you head for Grand Place and just turn left onto rue des eperonniers at the bottom of the hill, it's just a 5min walk. Surrounding streets are full of restaurants and art shops. The hotel was spotless and very quiet. They have 2 lifts, one of which only fits 2 people, so if you have lots of bags it may be better to wait for the bigger one! Breakfast was great, a self-service buffet and you have as much as you want (you cannot take any food from the room, but you can buy it). The breakfast room was not huge but big enough. There was only 1 seat in the foyer just opposite reception, but was fine as we did not hang around the hotel much. The staff were friendly, there was no problem leaving our bags the day we arrived (we came a bit early and room was not ready) and the day we left (we checked out but our flight was not for a few hours) so that really helped. On Saturday morning, the cleaning lady knocked on our door at 9am, which was a bit early for us, especially on the weekend! Other than that they were fine. Room had TV, which was tricky to work (we are satellite novices), wardrobe (only 3 hangers but loads of space), safe, 2 chairs. Ensuite was nice, huge washtub, shower was on wooden slabs built into the floor. The shower curtain could be pulled back to give plenty of room. Toilet had an old-fashioned pull-string but also a button on the wall, so once we realised what it was that was grand. The ensuite had mosaic tiles, and a couple started to come off after a bit of walking on them, but no big deal. Also keep windows closed when possible to avoid mosquito bites. All in all an excellent hotel and value, i will come again!

Très bon hotel à 2 pas de la grand-place. Dans une rue très fréquentée la nuit, donc les chambres sur rue sont un peu bruyantes, mais après une bonne journée de marche on dort! La déco des chambres est design', style seventies sans excès. Conciergerie très compétente. Bref, un hotel pour une clientèle plutot jeune, et ne recherchant pas nécéssairement les services annexes.

The hotel is convienetly located to tourist destinations, but it is far enough off the Grand Place to be quiet and not too busy. Staff was very friendly and accomodating, but had trouble locating extra towels and pillows. Hotel was difficult to find from the train station.

The hotel was right in the center of Brussels, only steps away from the Grand Place and only a five minute walk from the central train station. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else coming to Brussels.

Hotel clean, very central, good quality breakfast. We were lucky enough to have a 5th floor room: very silent, quite big, with a nice view over the roofs of the gran place. The only minus was the spiral staircase going downstairs into the bathroom... something you would like to avoid when sleepy in the morning!

Excelent location. Very fine place. We just don't like the air conditionner as the unique system to warm the room.

Well, location 100 meters from the grand-place, not 20.... Everything new and not "smelly". Even the stairs. Breakfast very good - you will not be hungry, big breakfast room. We got a big room (107), there are smaller rooms, and some have bath. A/C works well, important during the summer. Not a fancy room, no fridge, but a big safe for lap-tops (40*40) The entrance to the street is blocked during the night, that's why the hotel is quiet. Many restaurants in the next street, take the second Italian from the right side (towards the grand place, where you will find Greek restaurants also). We paid 77 euros only - double room , (April 2007) - so price vs quality mite change if price will rize. I know the price is higher during the summer - and already made a reservation to October for 2 nights - the price is 120 euros and still good compare to the others. Very easy to find, so what are you waiting for ? Book the hotel !!!

Hotel was clean and spacious. Other visitors had commented on the good breakfast bu this was the one area that was slightly disappointing with a small selection of goods that were not topped up during the breakfast service which meant that you had to be early to breakfast to guarantee getting what you wanted.

Excellent location near central station and Grand Place. Friendly and helpful staff. The only negative was the man snoring in the room next door kept me awake.

Wow this was our favorite hotel for our whole trip. It was new, modern and very comfortable and the included breakfast was great. Location wise it was very close to the " old town" so great for sightseeing etc. The only down side- it was a little hard to find each street has two names, but I rang the hotel staff who were able to guide me to it.

The hotel was decent. The only problem is that the star rating is off. This is actaully a 3 star hotel. The price seems to be set on the 4 star rating and the hotel is not worth that. Everything was good...the breakfast, reception and room. It's in a very good location to the sites and not far from the Central Station (maybe a 10 minute walk). I would stay at the hotel again, but only if they change the star rating system.

Very central hotel, very welcoming and a lovely breakfast with a difference - good variety, good quality. However don't expect public areas where you can lounge or have a coffee.. no such thing at the hotel. But otherwise, it's very practical, 3 minutes to the square, lovely quiet road and efficient service. Rooms are spacious and clean, and so are the bathrooms. Ps..ignore reviews that state the hotel is a building site, it was done by end of December when I was there!

Hotel is situated very close to Grand Place. It is completely new renovated. Staff is very kind and helpful. Breakfast room is too small and breakfast could be better (only one sort of cheese, salami, no scrambled eggs, no tomatoes or other fresh vegetables). But very fresh and delicious croissants. And a very good relationship between price and quality.

Nice personal touches (for example, little box of Belgian chocolates on arrival). From outside, the hotel is slightly lacking in character, but that's not an issue for me. View from window not at all impressive. Honest/decent cancellation policy. Breakfast well-presented. I enjoyed my stay at this hotel.

The only thing that detracted from the stay was that the hotel was in the final stages of refurbishment and therefore the public areas were not quite finished. Otherwise the hotel was great, the rooms were clean, well appointed and the hotel is ideally situated for central Brussels and the Grand Place.
