Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Noga Brussels
High quality/price ratio
I very frequently stay in Brussels and Noga is my preferred Hotel. Located close to St. Katrin square, a beautiful place in the center of the city (about tem minutes walking from the Grand Place), but out of the most crowded touristic street, it is very quiet and relaxing. Rooms are not luxurious, old stile equipped, but clean and confortable. Personnel is very friendly. Breakfast is excellent. Only one negative point: reception and lounges close at 10 p.m.
Noga - good location, but...
Stayed at the Noga for 3 nights. Thursday a double room was 100 euros, on Friday and Sat this reduces to 80 euros. Location: excellent, within walking distance of numerous good restaurants, area has cobbled streets and is up and coming in terms of interesting shops. Room #107, r-d-chaussee level - large but shabby, depressing mismatched decor, plus smelled of stale smoke in the room. Shower is one of those that varies from freezing to boiling hot in a nanosecond - beware. Beds comfortable. Staff helpful, but the reception closes at 10pm which means that the whole lounge/billiards area is shut at the time you are most likely to want to use it, ie after dinner which is disappointing. Hotel would be much more welcoming if reception stayed open til midnight or later. Breakfasts good, varied range of food, but avoid the cornflakes, they leave it out all day in an uncovered bowl, yuck. All in all good value, especially in Brussels, but the room in particular could do with a revamp.
We stayed at the Noga Hotel for one night. Our room was huge and well appointed, with two couches and a nice mini bar (good prices too)! The hotel was very quiet. We never heard anyone else in their rooms or outside the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and we loved the dog and cat. The breakfast buffet was about the best you will find anywhere, especially in Europe. We really enjoyed the Noga and would gladly stay there again.
Just returned home after spending 3 nights at the Noga Hotel. Found our room very comfortable w/nice view. Frederic greeted us very warmly and suggested good restaurants, day trips to Brugge, and city tour of Brussels. The breakfast served was great! Rourad informed us that all food and pastries were prepared fresh daily. We will definitely consider staying again at Hotel Noga! Thank you again for all your hospitality.Regards, Irvin's, Sherrard's, Bunce, & Westfalls
Great common rooms & breakfast, but the room needs help
My husband and I stayed here for one night on March 23, 2004. The Noga is conveniently located within walking distance of the Grand Place, Mannekin Pis and some excellent chocolatiers. The common areas (reception desk, breakfast room and hallways) were quaint with a nautical theme and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast; complete with scrambled eggs, bacon, cold cuts and cheeses, breads, cereal, coffee, tea and juice; was excellent and helps make the Noga a great value. (I couldn't get enough of that bacon!) The room (#203) was a bit disappointing. It was dark, drafty and you could hear just about every conversation spoken out on the street, despite our being two floors up. The beds could use new blankets and the underside of the cover was stained and should be replaced also. Overall, is was a decent value for Brussels.
My home away from home
I live in California but visit my mother twice a year in the South of Belgium.
Since we discovered the Noga, my mother and I spend three days in Brussels before I fly back to the States.
The Noga is the kind of hotel you wish you had in every city: -- Impeccably clean and well maintained -- Owners are so friendly and helpful, and always on the premisses -- Superb breakfast - hot and cold, pate, cereals, fruits, pastries, etc. (important because it is my mother's and my favorite meal of the day) --Cozy, charming, lots of character --"Very quiet", each time we had a room facing the street and we always sleep with the window opened -- A short walk from the metro station -- Great price
Note that I alway have all my gears (tickets, papers, my Apple-of-my-eyes Powerbook, plus all the stuff I always bring back to the States) with me when I stay at the Noga. No worry, this hotel is secure and very well managed.
A wonderful experience. Looking forward to my next visit in April 04.
Pleasant little hotel
I stayed at the Hotel Noga recently, just for an overnight stay. It was a two minute walk from the subway station and staff happily stored our luggage for the day- we arrived early. Our room was clean and pleasant.
Beds were comfortable. The hotel staff were helpful with travel and sightseeing suggestions. There is internet service in this hotel. Very reasonably priced for the location.
Agree, a great little hotel
Great little hotel for the money, clean, tidy rooms. Very helpful staff, 10 minute walk from Grand Place, and a very nice breakfast.
Would definitely stay there again
Great Little Hotel
We decided to stay at the Noga from 25 - 28 July 2003 after reading several recommendations from others who had stayed there. This hotel is great. The Titanic theme is quirky and fun and very well done. The guest rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, ours had an enormous double bed and a very welcome, resonably priced mini bar - it was exceptionally hot weather when we were there. Breakfast is well beyond what you would expect, in addition to the standard bread rolls, ham and cheese were scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, cereals, fresh fruit, pastries and tarts which made for an excellent start to the day. The staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they were knowledgable on all the things you need to know about like train times and fares, good restaurants and bars, and best things to see and visit in 3 days. There's also a beautiful resident white cat. The hotel is conveniently situated just 10 mins from the Grand Place. The only way to improve this hotel is to add tea making facilities in the guest rooms - sorry, it's a Brit thing, I know! The price was 233 euros for a double for 3 nights. Will definitely stay here again.
A Nice, Small Hotel
I've stayed at the Noga Hotel each year for the last ten. What has impressed me the most is the constant upgrading of facilities that the ownership has made each year. The beautiful turn of the 19th century ocean liner motif is carried throughout the hotel. The staff are very helpful, even providing a van for transport to the airport that is about half of the price of a taxi. The continental breakfast is complete and always fresh. The neighborhood is quiet, but still a short ten minute walk from Le Grand Place. In short, this quiant 19 room hotel is great for the $75 - $90 range guest.
