Centrally located - business hotel A review of Hotel Aris
Once again chose a hotel on the basis of reviews on Tripadvisor. Very centrally located hotel - from upper floor room could see tops of buildings of grand place, a minute to grand place, very accesible to main Brussels sights and to tube / tram station to link with eurostar. Managed to get a good rate on a room for one night via last minute website, at least it was good value when compared with advertised room rate in hotel when we got there. Clean, nice bathroom, TV with BBC coverage, quiet hotel, seemed to be mainly business people (we were tourists) plain but nicely decorated, room was a tad chilly and seemed to only have a fan type heater (bathroom toasty though had a proper radiator) - although did not ask at reception about this. Good varied breakfast, although breakfast room felt a bit odd as was part of reception area. Only compliant would be that we had a room overlooking main street and whilst this was relatively quiet late at night was very noisy early morning when rubbish seemed to be being collected! Only there for one night so not sure whether this was a daily thing or not .... but didn't appreciate the noise and early wake-up call with bottles being loaded into trucks and so on!
