We have recently stayed there for long weekend break. My husband got a very good deal to stay at this hotel and we did have a very comfortable stay however I personally do not think it is a 5 star as it claims - quality of toiletries provided was very basic and there was no tea/coffee making facilities unless you either pay 8 Euro extra or stay in business class (?) rooms. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, especially they are also charging 29 Euro for it. There is a nice place not far from the hotel where you can eat a croissant with fair trade coffee or freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast for only 2 Euro.
I have given 4 out of 5 because of the excellent location. After all you are only in the room for sleeping anyway and room was clean and comfortable although it was a bit small. The location is excellent, easy to get to every direction, only a few minutes walk to Grand-Place, the main square or to the train station that takes you to/from airport. Brussels city centre is not that big and you can walk everywhere to get to most of places for visits and for food, and the location of the hotel makes it even better to explore the city day and night.
As other previous reviewers noted, room got really warm and sometimes we had to open the window. As it was only mid March and was rather chilly outside so there were not much people sitting outside of restaurants at night and we did not hear much noises coming from the street so we did not have any problem sleeping, however we imagine if this was summer it could get very noisy at night that may disturb one's sleep during the night.
Brussels is not a cheap place to eat and almost all restaurants serve mussels and fries, usually 21 - 25 Euro for big bowl of mussels with different sauces and fries, whilst starters are around 10 Euro. You can however find a nice restaurant on the main square serving lunch menu during the week for 18 Euro for 2 courses and a glass of wine. Obviously lots of chocolate boutiques such as Neuhaus, Godiva and Pierre Marcolini. We went to the coffee shop right next to the original Neuhaus and had a lovely 'Chocolate Treat menu' that was 10 Euro. This comes with a pot of lovely hot chocolate, Neuhaus patisserie and a praline. Also great for beer - I don't drink much beer but have tried a beer called Delirium which is very easy to drink but is 8% and is served in a special beer glass with pink elephants on it. I loved this glass so much I bought two from a beer shop in the centre to take home.
You can also easily walk to Upper City and visit Margritte Museum or even follow the Comic Strip Trail of mural of Belgian cartoon characters painted on building walls in/around the city centre. Ask for a city map at a hotel concierge and they should give you a map which shows the mural trails on it.
