Rated 4 out of 5 by Esso Really good hotel
Lovely, spacious bedroom and wet room. Downside was the latter hadn't been properly cleaned (loo and shower area) but it was too late in the day to make a fuss and I was only spending a night. 24/7 hot/cold food hub is a great idea as you can pick a meal, microwave it and take it to your room. Short walk to square for restaurants if you prefer. Long wait to check in on a sunday evening. Only 2 people at desk but there are self service options. Nice, friendly staff. Will definitely stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gojko88 Modern, trendy and hip
From the modern architecture, over typical Aloft hip interiors, to brilliantly organised rooms, this is a hotel for the 21st century traveller. However, despite its relaxed character, service standards are very serious. Check-in and check-out were efficient, staff are friendly and knowledge of English impeccable. The amenities are excellent both inside and outside the room, although I don't really understand why they keep the minibar empty on purpose - it's certainly not convenient going out of your room just to grab a snack or a drink. The location is better than one would expect, with tram, bus and metro connections available aplenty, but the surrounding area is very peaceful and quiet at night, something you'd never get staying at the Grand' Place. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable stay and a definite entry to my favourite list as long as the price is reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrequentFlyerGuy Outstanding Hotel and Experience
I love this hotel! The front desk staff is outstanding and very helpful, even with irregular requests. The rooms are large (massive by European standards) and feel new and clean. The shower is the best of any hotel; I want to install the same shower head in my house. The WiFi was fast and dependable, so hour long VOIP calls aren’t a problem. The bar had great beers and a better happy hour special. The bed is great and I slept better than at any other hotel on my trip. I can’t wait to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MariaW2014 One of the comfiest rooms I've ever slept in.
This hotel was lovely, The beds are huge and the rooms are clean and appear to be newly decorated. The closest tram stop is just up the road. I felt safe walking alone when it was dark. as there are always police there patrolling (it is opposite the european parliament). If I come back to Brussels again, I will definitely be staying here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gojko88 The best hotel in Belgium by far
For anyone feeling remotely young and modern, this hotel is the place to be in Brussels. It's perfectly located, close to metro and bus connections, the nearby place Jourdan caters to all your gastronomic needs, while the design of the hotel itself - inside and outside - is breathtaking. The staff is quite relaxed, but professional, and the check-in/out process was a breeze. No room upgrades in Aloft for SPG Gold members, but a welcome drink was duly provided. Best of all, the clever doorless design of the rooms means that they feel even more spacious than they are. The beds are like sleeping on a cloud, the 42" TV is there for all your infotainment needs, and you even have separate A/V connectors to hook up your own gear if you need a large display (which I immediately used to watch some Blu-Ray films from my own collection). The absolute best part for me was the incredibly fast internet, with a ridiculously low ping of 20 or less, which makes it perfect for online gaming, unlike 99% of hotels in the world. I had some misunderstandings with the staff concerning minor details, but that's not enough to overshadow the brilliant impression left by this week-long stay. I can't recommend this hotel enough, definitely the best experience in Belgium, if not in Europe on the whole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rajlaluk Great features; mosquitos.
Stayed here a few times and always find exactly what I need: neat, tidy and clean hotel with great rooms and no fuss. Perfect for a one or two night stay.
on this latest occasion, I was bitten by mosquitoes all night. I found one culprit and killed it after I had closed the windows.
The next day, I was told the hotel has a problem with them depending on the season. so I asked why a) the rooms windows were left open before I arrived; b) why there was no warning in the rooms or on arrival and c) why there was no spray or powered mosquito repellent in the room? No answer...
