Honestly I can't fault this hotel. I'd have to be nitpicking to find things that irritate me. We booked it through hotelopia for 50 GBP a night and upon checking in we were told that breakfast and minibar were included. Absolutely smashing! The hotel looks new, modern and smells very nice all the time. The breakfast is simply awesome and I really recommend that you have your breakfast there even if it is not included. It is absolutely worth it. Every bit of care went into preparing breakfast and I never say that about any hotel. You can even get sliced lemons next to the machine that serves tea! Where do you get that? There are so many items to choose from - different types of bread, cakes, eggs (scrambled, boiled), meat stuff, different types of cereals ... list goes on.
The rooms were modern with a mini bar, strong shower, safe etc. There are no tea/coffee kettle/machines in the room. You can take your own travel kettle or help yourself to one in the lobby. The doors do not have a chain lock - be sure to hang 'do not disturb' before you go to bed. The lift operates with your room key or it won't move an inch. A bar/restaurant is also there - looked fine but we did not eat there. Wifi is not free (only 15 min with vouchers available next to the desktop next to the reception).
To get to the hotel, take the metro to Louise from Gare du Midi. Don't try and walk from the station. You'll struggle to find it since Brussels is a compact city with lots of alleys. Once you've explored it, you can easily walk from Gare Centraal. There are lots of restaurants nearby. You may be tempted to eat in the street full of restaurants close to the hotel but the quality is not very good (atmosphere may be). If you are looking for fantastic italian (pizzas, pastas etc.), turn right on the main road Chausee Charleroi (not towards louise) as you come out of the revolving hotel door and do a 15-20 min walk or take a tram to Janson to Ristorante Belvedere. Superb food there free from tourists.
If you are looking for a supermarket to buy water or any grocery, turn right (I mean a U to side road called Rue Bosquet) and keep walking till you reach a supermarket called "Proxy". If you don't want to eat breakfast at the hotel, there is a patisserie called "Paul" next to the hotel.
A very good hotel and I definitely recommend it. Note that there is another NH hotel called NH Stephanie about 3-4 min from NH Hotel Brussels City Centre.
