Reviewed 9 June 2012

This place is new, but it kind of had the feel that it was built by someone's brother and not an official contractor. Edges were unfinished, some tiles not grouted, none of the doors matched up quite right. Because my door didn't fit, light poured in all night and there are no blackout curtains which made sleeping quite difficult. Also there is a lot of construction in the area which awoke me at 6am every morning. There is no A/C, so I needed to sleep with the windows open.
I extended my stay because of changes in my travel itinerary and on the day I was originally going to check out, I intended to ask if they needed me to pay now for the first days or not, but no one was at the front desk. When I returned, the front desk employee got kind of confrontational with me about paying for the nights I had stayed so far. It seemed unnecessary since I was completely fine with this and made me quite uncomfortable. The location is good, near Louise Street and the metro station Naamespoort, but I would see if I could stay somewhere else next time since I left the place quite sleep deprived.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of building to minimize street and construction noise

Great value hotel, 20 mins walk down to lower town. Rooms clean and newly refurbished but obviously done on a shoe string (Ikea furniture, toilet roll holder coming out of wall) but really very nice for the price.

The hotel itself is brand new and very comfortable, the breakfast is copious and the staff is very helpful. The main drawback is that almost every building on the street are under rehabilitation. It is very convenient to the Porte de Namur metro station. Once out of the street the neigbourhood is good and only a few 100 meters from Avenue de la Toison d'Or and Avenue Louise. it is a great value for the price if you do not mind the constructions on the street.

Room Tip: make sure you get a room on the back so you do not hear the construction noise in the neigbouring bu...

My daughter just called me last night from this hotel. She is a 21 year old student who is completing a semester abroad in Paris. She and a few other students booked this hotel because they are students and trying to conserve money. WELL, I told her to look for bedbugs. The phone call came in....room infested with bedbugs. To make matters worse, the man at the front desk was not very nice and WOULD NOT refund their money back. Talk about taking advantage. They left the hotel.....STAY AWAY!

Room Tip: don't choose this hotel!
