“If Carlsberg did hotels....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

This hotel certainly doesn't win on location, nor is it necessarily the most luxurious that I have stayed in, nor does it offer a full range of amenities you would find ain a big hotel. And Brussels isn't exactly the most exotic of cities. But beManos is my all-time favourite hotel (out of many many that I have been to). Why?

a. Because it is not a chain hotel, as far as I can tell it is a family-owned business. Service is polite and understated.
b. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable, well appointed and a good size for Europe. They may perhaps be a bit too dark or "style conscious" for some tastes, but one cannot deny they are comfortable and welcoming.
c. The breakfast buffet while not as large or varied as in other hotels, is nevertheless of a high quality and adequate to get one started for the day.
d. Room service is quick and of a high quality.
e. Although the immediate neighbourhood is not exactly "charming", it is close walking distance to Gare du Midi. If you don't want to use the metro, then it is only about 30 minutes walk to areas like St. Katherine's Square (which has a good selection of restaurants).
f. I have stayed here several times and the level of service is consistent.
g. Did I mention the rooms?

I have seen other reviewers comment about the neighbourhood around beManos, and yes, it is not exactly attractive. But I would not say it feels unsafe, especially during the day (although I might understand single female travellers may find it a little intimidating late in the day). However, that aside, for me this is the best hotel in Brussels.

Room Tip: All the rooms are slightly different in size and layout, so I am not sure which to recommend. Howeve...

Dear Guest,

We are very pleased to hear that you are happily satisfied with your stay, especially with our service quality and the comfort in the room.

Thank you from the whole team, our guest's satisfaction is always inspiring and encourages us to keep up our efforts to provide the best service.

The Be Manos, an independent and family runned hotel have been thought in an aesthetic way and to edict new codes in the upscale hotel designs.

Within the same perspective, we participate to the September design event the whole month of September, thus you will have the opportunity to discover the latest creations of Michael Le Bihain in our hotel.

As for the location, the hotel provides a service of free shuttle from/to the midi station and a night guard from 6 pm to 6 am to guarantee the security of the guests.

Looking forward to welcoming you back at the Be Manos in the near future

Kind regards,

Merav Abergel
Assistant General Manager

I have been working out in Brussels off and on over the last 18 months, most recently on an intensive basis and have discovered the Be manos hotel over the last 3 months.

This hotel quite simply delivers an exceptional level of service:

Rooms are large, well equipped with very large and extremely comfortable beds.
Bathrooms are spacious, modern and well equipped.
No noise from the street disturbs your sleep unlike in some other hotels in Brussels
Breakfast is very good albeit quite expensive, same for dinner choice in hotel.
Bar service is excellent after woprking 12 hour days the bar staff always seem to be pouring my beer for the evening when i arrive.

Downside: Hotel is not located in the best of areas in Brussels so i would say don't go strolling outside for an evening walk, though its like any city be sensible and your fine. Hotel operates shuttle service to the railway stations.

In summary i like the hotel very much so much so that when project has finished my partner is joining me for the last weekend and she and I will be staying yes you guessed it in the Be Manos at my own cost...

We've just stayed 3 nights at BeManos in a suite with terrase (made the booking on the Mr&Mrs Smith website). We loved everything about BeManos. We received a warm welcome when we arrived, all along during our stay the staff was friendly and efficient. Our suite was spacious, clean, with a beautiful bedroom/bathroom, everything was perfect.
Drank amazing cocktails at the bar. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, plenty to choose from.
Would definitely stay again at BeManos.
We were surprised to read in previous reviews that some people were finding the area unsafe, we didn't find it to be the case at all.

I can understand why this is a popular business hotel, as it ticks all the right boxes. It was so good being picked up by the complimentary shuttle in a new city, and the staff make you feel welcome straight away. The staff at breakfast was great, he anticipated what we needed, and knew our tea orders by day 2. The value for cost of room is very good, especially since the breakfast had lots of fruit and good variety of food. Is about 20 mins from city centre, but to be honest, there isn't that much to see in Brussels that can't be done in a full day. We found the proximity to train station good, as we used Brussels as base to explore other cities like Antwerp and Ghent instead.
