Hotel Queen Anne
- What's Included
I was invited for a birthday party at the newly opened restaurant Atelier de Willy, which is just around the corner of this hotel. Quite practical, so I booked a room over here without too much expectations. Price was very moderate some 75â‚¬ for a night and the breakfast was only 8â‚¬. I did not expect too much. The lady at the reception who took my reservation was VERY friendly. The room was spacious and clean and had all one needs. What I particulary enjoyed was the high quality of the bed. I slept very well. The breakfast is a typical Belgian one: they have croissants, toast, several kinds of bread etc... and all the usual stuff I enjoy in the morning. Summerized, this hotel has no big pretentions...but they deliver an excellent price quality ratio and all the staff I encountered was friendly.Will I return next time I'm in Brussels ? A clear YES
Brussels was unusually busy this time - so the Queen Anne was basically the only option left to stay in the preferred area and with breakfast available.This was my second stay in this hotel. The hotel is clean, the staff is nice, the room I got on the top floor is reasonable sized, with a good view of the city. The breakfast is good enough, nothing fancy but bread, egg, bacon, fresh veggies, yogurts, juices and coffee are offered. Close to the city center, shopping area and metro station (easy access to the Europen quarter).If you manage the "normal" price, it is an option to stay, but for the price I paid - almost 300 EUR for two nights inc. breakfast for a single room - just really bad price-quality ratio. On the 7th floor the corner room during the day was sort of cold and windows had no curtain (only a black one using at night). The old style
The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are affordable and the rooms are clean.However, the qualities of this hotels ends here.The building is quite old, the rooms have a cheesy interior design (pink flamingo wallpapers) and the beds aren't comfortable at all. The TV included are tiny box from the beginning of this century (2000). Using the elevator is comparable to travelling 25 years in the past.Location isn't bad we could walk to the main touristic site in less than 20 minutes.
At first, after reading all the mixed comments I was a bit worried and even mentally prepared myself. My 2-day stay there turned out to be quite enjoyable. The hotel was tiny and a bit old but as a solo-traveler I think the hardware there is quite acceptable at its price. Affordable single rooms are not that easy to find and book after all, so I'm not getting picky on the device and decor. The only thing I care a lot about is cleanliness and the room I got was definitely clean. The shower was nice and the bed was comfortable and clean.About the thin walls so many people complained about, I don't think it's that big of a problem. True, I could hear people laughing and talking in the hallway during the evening but after 9 or 10 people quieted down. So I didn't really have noise problem during bed time. I'm a very light sleeper and I suffer a lot from noises when sleeping, but definitely not in this hotel. The only downside is that there are no hairdryers in the single rooms so I had to borrow one at the front desk. But they let me return it the next morning (I shower in the evening) so it's not that big of an inconvenience.Overall, I would recommend this hotel as long as you keep in mind that this is a budget hotel, not those fancy 4/5 star grand hotels. The service and the clean room I got was worth the money I paid. I will surely stay here again when I revisit Brussels.
Stayed here for a 4 day break, Easter 2017. It is basic but you get what you pay for and though some parts of the hotel could do with some refurbishment, it is spotlessly clean. Maids come in daily to give you fresh bedding, towels, soaps and shampoos etc.Reception staff are lovely and very helpful. Rooms are small, but as I said, clean. No tea or coffee making facilities in rooms and only espressos available at reception.Breakfast is very disappointing, but no one does breakfast like the Brits. Cooked breakfast only consists of scrambled egg and bacon and this is the same every day. Cereals, cold meat and tasteless cheese are also offered. The bread is very crunchy and tasteless also. The coffee is good. This is a good budget hotel for visiting the centre. Turn right out of the hotel and within 10-15 minutes walk, you are in the centre and can visit La Grande Place (stunning square) and many chocolatiers. Brussels is disappointingly modern and lacks a lot of history and places of beauty. There are sadly many people living on mattresses in the streets and heartbreaking to see families with children begging on the street late at night. It is filled with kebab, pizza and burger places. However, one restaurant and bar which we loved in Brussels was Le Cirio, established in 1886 and is like a journey back in time with its original features and such charm. The waiters are charming and funny too.Worth a visit is Mini Europe, a miniature village with models of many of Europe's famous buildings and landmarks. Next to it is the Atomium which we queued for almost 2 hours to enter. I would not bother. It's a quick ride in the lift to see a view and not worth the money or the crippling wait.If you wish to visit either of these places, turn left out of the hotel, then right at the next junction and walk along until you see a large parasol type cover over the metro station, Rogier. We took the metro to Elizabeth on line 6 and then changed for Heizel which is where you go for these attractions. I am sure there are direct trains as the one we got back was direct from Heizel to Rogier. Bruges is well worth a visit and we caught a train from Gare du Nord which is also near Rogier Metro station. It is a beautiful place.From airport we paid for a shuttle bus to Gare Midi. This cost 14â‚¬ each return. We then got a taxi which cost another 14â‚¬ but easier to get Metro from Gare Midi to Rogier; quicker and cheaper.
