Liked: Most of the hotel staff can speak English. The hotel has a very good location, only 10 to 15 minutes walk away from the Grand Place. It has a good money value. Also, we booked a quad room with a private bedroom and it was very spacious.

Disliked: The rooms are a bit old but generally quite clean. The doors are old so I am not sure how safe is actually locks our stuff. However, if you are on a backpack trip, it won't be much of an issue since you would carry your valuables with you all the time

Liked: The hotel looks like it probably was in the sixties, which brings a nice vintage atmosphere. Cool elevator :) The location is perfect : just by a metro entrance , and 10 minutes from center by foot.

Disliked: No WIFI, or seated in the entrance hall, for 5 euros ! In the 7th floor, it takes 15 minutes to get warm water. Squeaky bed.

Liked: La ubicación, el agua caliente y el colchón, sólo eso.

Disliked: Un hotel muy antiguo, oscuro, limpio pero con aspecto a gastado y viejo, un poco de olor a humedad, ideal para personas mayores, sin wifi (solo disponible en la planta baja y con un pago excesivo de 5 euros por día), tv 14" CRT con 20 canales y sin control remoto. Breakfast, normal: café, té, leche, pan lactal, mermelada, manteca, salame y queso.

Liked: Very central to everything. Friendly staff. I read lots of negative feedback from others about this hotel, but its not true. First of all, you get what you pay for so don't expect the Grand. Second, if you are polite to the staff they will be polite back. Hotel Manhattan was perfect for our trip, and will probably stay there again next year.

Disliked: Nothing much really.

Liked: I liked the downtown location where everything was easy to get to.

Disliked: Within the room, the bathroom was very poorly cleaned as there was mold throughout the entire shower, and the door did not work well at all either. The wifi rule was ridiculous, as many other places I have stayed at have free wifi throughout the entire building.

Liked: It is located right outside of a metro stop so it's easy to find.

Disliked: WiFi cost 5eur per day and is only available next to the check-in desk where there are a couple chairs. I find it very expensive for what it was. It was not very clean, and pretty sketchy. The heat didn't work in our room so it was also very cold. It seems like it hasn't been updated in decades.

Liked: They are willing to keep your room key for you at the front desk while you are out and about. We didnt have to worry about losing it or being mugged and the key being stolen.

Disliked: The rooms are dusty and need to be vaccumed. They make you pay for wifi and you can only use the wifi in the main lobby where there are these old, gross, ugly, and uncomfortable chairs. The hotel literally felt like it could crumble over at any moment. The staff were not very helpful and at times were quite rude to us. Also they tried telling us that we needed to pay again after we had already paid in full the first night we got there. The property and services do not reflect in the price we paid to stay at this hotel. ALSO there is no mention about safety in this part of town. It is NOT safe.
