Hotel Galia is described in most travel guides as 'basic'. Which it is, pretty much. My room was quite small, and had windows on two sides, so in November, it was quite chilly - but an electric heater kept it warm. I'm not a small person, so I felt I was, at times, wearing the room rather than living in...

I was very pleased with my stay at the Hotel Galia. It was a couple block walk from the Midi train station which made it easy to get to from the Airport. The Hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful! The airline canceled my flight out and the desk clerk did all he could to help me...

My boyfriend and I used this hotel because we were only spending one night in Brussels and this was very economic. Well, we didn't really like the neighborhood, it is not close to any attraction and it's a bit scary at night. The room was ok for a night, a bit small, and the people running it were nice.

We got 4 rooms in this hotel for a long weekend with friends. We chose it because of location (near the event we were attending. Three of the four rooms were tiny and there was no wardrobe or anything like that. But it is not something that bothers us. One of the rooms had a persistent smell of humidity mixed...

The location is easy to access from Midi station although the area is not great. To be honest we found the city itself very grey and not amazing. To our surprise the room was great, very spacious, very affordable, completely refurbished toilet and shower, good customer service from receptionist who printed our boarding passes complimentary. A good surprice regarding price-quality....

Exceptionally friendly people, great location at historic flea market, and budget priced. It is an old hotel, with a very small elevator that didn't work well, so not recommended for special needs travelers. The room was large, with windows that opened onto the square, which was lovely but noisy late into the evening. The bathroom was tiny ... maybe 16...

This hotel was in a perfect location - easy to walk into the centre and only a 15 min walk from both the central station and midi station. The antiques quarter is great for a wander and there was a market on right outside every morning. Although our room was on this side of the building the noise was not...

This place looks to be new - still some work being done on it but what is completed is lovely. Location - Great access to two Metro stations - 5-10 minute walk to Gare du Midi which is one of the main ones where you can catch trains to other countries, and 5 minute Port de Hal Hallepoort Metro station...

The hotel is old an is not in a nice area. The carpet smells like a old pair of shoes. The room is very small and uncomfortable. The toilet is extremely small. With 15 euro more you can find a nicer hotel in the real center of the city. Please do not do our mistake.
