Everything was well run, front desk was friendly, breakfast was good. bed was good, room was nicely decorated and spacious. the location was ideal for my work and very near a subway station. My room was off the street (as I asked for) and remarkably quiet.

Excellent stay, attentive and helpful staff at front desk. Housekeeping staff were courteous and diligent. Room was small but well appointed and well stocked. We would absolutely stay at the Marivaux again.

We really enjoyed our stay here! Bruno at the front desk was the nicest, friendliest, and most helpful person we've seen in a looong time! He helped us secure brewery tickets, catch the right train and handwrote directions for us! The hotel was really nice too (great ac), but the personnel really made the experience!

Check-in is efficient, friendly and competent. It takes some time finding your room because of the numbering system used (elevator, floor, room) so that f.i. 3103 means elevator 3, 1st floor where one could easily assume it was the 3rd floor.

The rooms are spacious and well furnished, the bed is excellent. Due to the fact the hotel rooms are spread across an number of neighboring structures, the view from the room could be a blind wall or some other rooms across a very short space between the buildings. The latter was the case which forces you to keep the curtains fully closed unless you want to be looked at.

The ergonomics of the rooms leave something to be desired however. There is an airconditioning control in the room but although the display seems to indicate it works, it does not until you call the front desk to have it "programmed" centrally. Finding out about that after a very hot and sweaty night is NOT very good I'm afraid.

The bathroom shower cannot be turned on (or its temperature adjusted) without being thoroughly splashed with cold water because of the location of the faucet which also needs a lot of force applied to it (and no slippery wet hands).

The shaving mirror is mounted flush to the wall at a 90 degrees angle when you stand in front of the washbasin - very clean/clear, well lit but entirely useless!

Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of fruit, cold cuts, cheese, bacon and eggs, coffee and fruit juices (not natural) as well as a good selection of breads and bakery products. Breakfast staff is not communicative and uninterested and I had to clear my own table a couple of times when the restaurant was almost empty but the tables were stacked with dirty tableware.

Conference facilities were adequate, be it a bit cramped and the refreshments during the breaks were set-up in time and were plentiful. The lunches were served at the table by efficient and friendly staff. Food selection was of very high quality!

Liked: good check-in/check-out, excellent valet parking, friendly front desk staff, bed, desk & free wifi internet connection, spacious room, conference refreshments, lunch quality and service.

Not so good: view from the window/lack of privacy, bathroom ergonomics, airco setup, very cramped warm and stuffy corridors.

Room Tip: Go high to avoid the noise of ground floor compressors and get some more air into the room.

Dear NewMikey,
Thank you for your detailed rewarding review. We value feedback to help us improve our service. Being in Brussels city centre may explain the lack of view from some rooms, which unfortunately is out of our hands. However, our staff is proud to have contributed to your stay’s success. We hope to see you again soon at the Marivaux Hotel!
Best Regards

The hotel was ok, breakfast was really good. Stayed there for 2 nights. The room was large (nothing like pictures), unfortunately the view was...well there was no view. Close to main attractions, close to Gare du Nord. Ok hotel, nothing special, no impressions.
