Ibis Brussels Centre Ste-Catherine
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The location is fantastic - in a very lively and beautiful downtown, with dozens of restaurant choices (great sea food!) and visits within the walking distance. The rooms however are below Ibis standard - a double room of 10 sqm (bathroom included) can hardly hold 2 people. Very noisy bathrooms (you do not want your neighbor to take a shower late at nigght), so are rooms with windows on the kitchen side (you need to get up before 6 am when they strat preparing breakfast). But it is clean, wi-fi works and breakfast is quite good. Service is... very neutral (no more than what is necessary). Good idea - ironing board on every floor.
This hotel is ideally placed only a few minutes walk from many restaurants, bars, the Grand Place and Manneken Pis. Although so close to all these things, it is in a quiet spot and a good night sleep was had. The only minor criticism would be that in the Bathroom of our room 501, the toilet was in a tight corner, but apart from that it was fine. Check-in and out was easy and all the staff were very helpful. Being only a few minutes level walk from the Bourse Metro station so anyone travelling to Brussels by train will find it very easy to get to this hotel. All-in-all, this is a hotel that I would recommend for anyone wanting to stay very near to the city centre.
We are traveling Europe during the month of May for our overdue honeymoon. We have been in several hotels, thus far. I am writing this review while we are still here (for another 2 days). While the room is clean, the size of this room is disappointing (for a STANDARD DOUBLE ROOM) and the complete layout is non-functional. It was advertised as "hardwood/parquet floors" .... but that is ONLY in the bathroom - the rest of this room is carpet. There is no view. The bed pillows are like laying on "tube socks partially filled with cotton balls". However, we are adaptable and will make this work for 2 more nights. We did not get the breakfast because 30 Euro is a bit expensive for breakfast.
For the price we paid, the hotel was very good. Excellent location and standard Ibis amenities (you can't go wrong with a chain when it comes to accommodation). Staff were friendly and everything went smoothly. Unfortunately I can't comment on the breakfast as we chose not to have it there.
We had an enjoyable stay at the Ibis as you would expect. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Room was nice and clean.Only one thing slightly upset me. The bar manager seemed to be enjoying the beer he was drinking with a group of people more than anything else. The barmaid received her orders whilst he was casually drinking with the guests in the bar which is incredibly unprofessional. As someone who works for Accors prestigious Mgallery hotels, this was a dissapointment. The advertised cocktails were unavailable, and it definitely wasnt the fault of the barmaid as she did our best to make us feel very welcome.Maybe the bar manager should spend his time training his student workers and ensuring all advertised drinks are available instead of drinking with guests hosting fussball tournaments.Other than that, an ejoyable stay.
