This hotel is very well located near to the Bruxelles-Midi railway station, and so was ideal for our two-night weekend visit.

We wanted to be close enough to walk from the station (where the Charleroi airport shuttle runs to), but not too far from the city centre. The Be Manos delivered on everything we needed: convenient location, friendly staff, tasty breakfast, funky modern decor and a great price!

We didn't get to the hotel until 11:00pm, but not only was check-in very quick, the BarBQ brasserie next door was still open and serving food.

The bedrooms can be a bit of a shock though: the bathroom door is just smoked glass, so absolutely no privacy; a semi-opaque door would have looked just as good and at least given some privacy. The rest of the room was perfect, including a Nespresso coffee machine.

Breakfast had plenty to offer, similar to most hotel buffet breakfasts, but also included fresh honeycomb (great on the waffles)! The scrambled egg was a bit below-par on the second day though.

The local area is a bit seedy, with not much else around, so a trip into the city centre is a must when looking for anything of interest. The walk into the city is a pleasant one mile, and we felt perfectly safe walking back late in the evening, despite being gawped at by customers in the men-only Muslim cafes.

Stayed here for a weekend in Brussels with friends. The hotel is immaculate and very modern. Everything is quite trendy with quirky furnishings and accessories. The room was very spacious with a lovely comfy queen sized bed. The bathroom is only separated from the bedroom by a glass screen so there is no privacy, however the toilet was private! Breakfast had a good selection at the buffet, it was a bit cold on the first day, but excellent on the second day. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Location is very convenient for walking to everything. We had a lovely stay here and I would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely amazing hotel. Room clean, modern and comfortable. Breakfast to much to choose from. Staff very attentive. Highly recommend Bemanos. Good location to visit Brussels. I highly recommend booking the sandemans tours. Excellent weekend in a top city, will hopefully return one day.

We arrived late at night for a three night stay. The receptionist was friendly. Room was nice and spacious. Very dark rooms as mainly black but very comfortable bed.Needs a little tender care, blinds coming apart and bathroom skirting needs a clean. Great size bath and wonderful rain shower. Towels hard but clean.Great to have Nespresso machine and a kettle for drinks. TV has many channels to suit all tastes. WiFi not so good with only average connection.
Our deal included breakfast which if I recall was €25 Euro extra if not included. Very poor breakfast. A “hot” plate containing a few bits of bacon that was cold . Mini sausages undercooked and cold and scrambled egg that looked awful floating in water. A few pastries and some hams and cheese that looked like they had been there for ages. We never had breakfast there the remaining to breakfasts. For a hotel of its claimed quality and rating this seriously needs to be addressed ! Hampton by Hilton and Holiday Express put this place to shame in this area !
Not very friendly staff on front desk when you are in and out, we always said hello done did respond done others didn’t even lift their head over the desk. The hotel is very quiet despite being told it was full. We never saw a sole in the bar that is open for residents.
The hotel is located a few minutes from Brussels Midi Station and the do offer a free shuttle. The area is very run down but there are a couple of reasonable friendly bars in the square. There are sadly homeless people and beggars around as in many cities today.
It took us about 15-30 minutes to walk to centre and back to our favourite restaurant Drug Opera.
Overall a very relaxing weekend with great weather.

Dear Guest,
Many thanks for let us know your comments about your stay.
Concerning the breakfast, it's not usual that we do have complaints. We'll investigate what happened that day.
Hope you'll remember Brussels as a nice city.
Best regards.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights sharing a triple room (twin beds and a sofa bed) with my friend. The hotel has a fresh contemporary feel with beautiful modern decor and artwork throughout and feels very luxurious. Staff were helpful and welcoming. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. Very quiet too, slept very well. Wonderful buffet breakfast, great choice of cereals, fresh and dried fruits, meats, cheeses and pastries, and the dining room and bar areas are beautiful, very stylish. This hotel is very good value for money, has such a luxurious feel. The square in which the hotel is situated is very pleasant, has a water fountain and several good cafes with outdoor seating. Easy to get to centre of Brussels from Midi/Zuid station which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. A fantastic base to explore Brussels, would definitely return.
