Good hotel, although not so elegant as in the photos. It's 2 minutes walk from the Madou metro station and the European Commission office buildings, so it's fine for the business traveller. The hotel is a normal 3 star hotel, clean, moderate sized rooms, but nothing fancy. I wondered that there was no swedish table at the breakfast, so you...

I stayed for two nights in July. The location is not central but acceptable (this can be easily seen in maps provided by every online booking service; I also reccommend a Google-Earth check of the area before booking). Staff were very friendly, breakfast plentiful and the room clean and confortable, yet small. I was very satisfied considering I paid 115...

We stayed only three nights and had an excellent experience. The desk staff were fine, and the young lady on duty most of our stay was really excellent.. She arranged for the town tour to pick us up at the entrance and spent time with us to plot our walks on a map. The hotel is located in what is...

Booked through tourism office. Slight problem with booking getting from tourism office to the hotel. The desk staff and door attendant was particularly helpful and friendly. Clean, comfy room. Nice continental breakfast.

After a previous visit three years ago without incidents I decided to give the Royal another chance. This time as last time I left for Brussels to spend a few days away from home with my girlfriend. The hotel is pretty much a standard 3-star western European hotel. It is indeed a bit old-looking but nothing that really bothers. Rooms...

This hotel is well located and easy to get to from the Metro at Madou. The staff are very welcoming and the accommodation is clean and fresh and very comfortable. The breakfast is very good although it is not self service.

This was NOT the high-quality hotel I was expecting; nowhere near three or four stars. Room small even by European standards. Decor seemed to be "Mid-1980's European Disco." Service was mediocre. Location was a long fifteen-minute walk to the Grand Place and all the shopping/fun things in Brussels. And while that fifteen-minute walk was downhill on the way to the...

In spite of its name the Hotel is not in the town centre, but trams run outside the door and the nearest Metro "Botanique" is just 2 minutes walk. They are actually refreshing everything so maybe it will be better in a couple of months. The room was renovated, bright and clean but the bathroom was old and needed renovation....

We stayed here in January with our 10 year old daughter. I have to say I was disappointed with the room . It looks great on the website but the reality is disappointing. The beds were not comfortable and the throw was badly stained, Yuk. The sofa bed was the worst I've ever seen. My daughter couldn't sleep on it...
