Poor 2,0
When we arrived we entered into a building which was looking worse for wear, it was dirty looking but the guy reception seemed to be nice he brought us into another building which was where the rooms were It all went down hill from then,the tv didnt work,the toilet was blocked,the safe didnt work and if you wanted a cup of tea you had to put the kettle on the floor as there were no sockets at eye level,wouldnt recommend to anyone it all looks good on line but everthing is just a prop nothing works,when we told the reception he just kind of smirked and said he would try fix but we just wanted to go by then and so we did please don't go there if you want a stress free break

Never again
Got a room on last floor, neeeded to take dodgy stairs up from 4th to 5th which is not very easy with big baggages, plus the room is very small, in the ceiling of the building which means that you have to bend over to get to one side to another... NO HEATING! it didn't work the night I was there the boiled had a failure, I found hairs in my bed, the carpet was NO COMMENT VERY DIRTY and area very noisy I could not sleep well because of the continous noise from the street. They offered me breakfast for compensation but did not want to take the risk, sorry.. you can improve your overall services by starting to clean properly the carpet next time... very very dirty!!!!

I had an excellent stay at Hotel Retro, will definitely go back. The friendliest and kindest staff I’ve met in a long time, I had a great experience, nothing but nice to say about the place.

I highly recommend this hotel. It’s very close to most of the sites we wanted to visit. The train station is walking distance. The room where we stayed was big; a lot of rom for our 4 luggage and more. The only thing I would recommend is to put a prominent sign on the entrance of the hotel. We have to ask where the entrance is. I will stay in this hotel next time we visit Belgium.

Very good 8,0
the room was comfort and staffs were friendly. the location is not too far from the Nord station, about 10 mins walk. but if you carrying a big luggage it takes longer time as the hotel is located in a little uphill.

Good location if you consider city center walks and further journeys by subway and Uber.

Good little hotel
Very comfortable large bed and a great shower. Room had everything I needed including a small fridge. Hotel is only a short walk into the Grand Place and Central Station and a Metro line station up to the Atomium is only 100 metres away. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great value
Hotel was good value for money, there was a decent breakfast and staff were helpful. The rooms were nice as they were new! Only criticism is that the room was a little small so difficult to move around, but that's being picky! Overall very good and would go back.

Okay stay
The location is in a very run down area. The hotel (the new building) is nice (on the inside) but didn’t have much going on in the room. he location is great, close to the train station and very easy to get around the city by train
