The hotel has the best location in the city if you want to be in the center all the time. You can walk and explore the city. The train station is close too. |The stuff was very helpful that they even helped me to carry my luggage to the third floor. The room was clean. But don’t expect a silent room because the hotel is near the Manneken Pis and it is always crowded outside.

Situated on the 3 floors above a shop.|There is only 6 rooms - 2 on each floor.||This is right next to the Mannequin Pis landmark and a 3 minute walk from Grand Place so a great central location.||Room is clean and tidy - has a fair size toilet / shower room. Wardrobe with a safe. Small fridge. Fan and TV.||Great views of the mannequin pis from the window. ||There is a key code door to get in once the shop is closed.||Can order breakfast the day before to be served in your room but we didn’t bother as thought it was quite pricey. ||Only downside - if you have mobility problems, this probably isn’t the best place for you - there isn’t a lift. We were on the top floor which entails 3 lots of marble spiral staircase - they are quite tight and 16 stairs in each (yes, I counted several times!) ||Other than that, would recommend. We would stay again.
