Smart Rooms, Generally good service, off location
Spent 3 nights for a conference. Rooms seem small but are laid out efficiently and there’s no wanting for storage. Bartender in the evening was great - very friendly and attentive, though much of the breakfast staff ignored their patrons. OK spread but nothing special, no eggs to order offered, fruit salad but no spread of fresh fruit.
Bed was extremely comfy, tv turned off automatically (which i like since I fall asleep with it on) and bathroom/shower are all good, though the first time using the shower I got much of the bathroom wet as the shower door isn’t flush with the wall; I ended up using the shower door to “sweep” water INTO the bathroom. HVAC worked well, lighting intuitive, lots of storage and flufffy towels/robes.
Don’t really get all the Chinese touches throughout the hotel - I assume its Chinese-owned, and this just doesn’t seem authentic to the area. Pool was nice even on a November afternoon, though there were no towels to be found.
I tried to cancel my last night upon arrival as a travel agent missed my request for a 2 night stay. The hotel refused to waive the 3rd night charge, so I spent 1 more night here than desired as I wanted to stay in a more touristic location downtown. Have never had a hotel refuse to shorten a stay w/o a fee, and the hotel was EMPTY this last night.
While the hotel is isolated, its a 10 minute walk to a metro station, then 20-25 minutes to Belgium’s central locations.
Certainly a nice place and 3 great nights’ sleep, but I wouldn’t return here, largely due to location.
