      Ik houd wel van dit soort morsige hotels, maar...

      De prijs is te hoog voor zo'n hotel, die zou ongeveer de helft moeten zijn.

      The hotel is situated just several minutes of walk from the central square of Brussels. Breakfast was simple but nice.

      When I undid my bed I found some hair on my pillow. Also the temperature inside the room was quite low and all of us were cold overnight.

      Nothing, I would stay there only if I don't have any other option. I was frozen for the two nights I stayed there.

      There is nothing to like!

      It was my second stay there. I like that hotel. It is not expensive, however, threre is everything to enjoy with.

      They need better internet connection, preferably free WiFi

      The location was excellent, just 2 minutes walk from Rogier Metro Station which in turn was a 10 minute ride from Brussels Midi Station. The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel was very clean and tidy. There was a superb Bar (Le Cambridge) within 2 mins walk and also the superb Brussels Grill within another 2 minutes.

      I think the Manhattan was more or less what I was expecting for the price paid. By this, I mean basic. The TV had no remote and with BBC1 on Channel 43, I was in danger of Repetetive Strain Injury. The Shower Head only produced a Jet Wash but it still woke me up in the morning. The Buffet Breakfast was very limited with bread, cheese, salami, 2 fruit juices, tea and coffee. It would be so easy to add boiled eggs, a cereal or bran and yoghurts at no great cost. The Hotel gave the impression that it was privately owned and in need of a cash injection to raise the level to at least 1*. However, I would stay there again if travelling solo - a situation where good deals are hard to find in a Capital City. I would only recommend The Manhattan to people who fully knew what to expect.

      The hotel is situated in a central area and can be reached easily by metro.

      The bathroom needs rinnovation. No shower gel and shampoo. Only a bar of soap was available. Used soap bar from previous residents was still there. A bath curtain is required so that water would not be scattered on the floor. Floor mat was only available on the first day. Chrome shower pipe need replacing. Both driking glasses in the bathroom had lip marks with toothpaste. No hair-dryer. On the whole, room was satisfactory - only the bathroom had been very much neglected.

      I strongly do not recommend this hotel to anybody

      The hotel is just terrible. Worn out,dusty smelly and dirty. I would not sleep in that place again even if it is free of charge. The sheets and the blankets were with holes on them, the towels were around 20 years old. We slept with our clothes on in the bed as we were totally disgust from the room conditions.

      The only thing to consider liking about the Hotel Manhattan is if you are on a boys trip it is surrounded by sex shops and strip clubs, which stay open and active to the early hours of the morning.

      The initial welcome and continuing lack of communication from anyone at the front reception. We were given three very old, very tired uncomfortable single beds that all needed new mattresses when we requested a double room for a couple. The lighting in the room was totally inadequate, my partner used a torch in order to read a book. There was no remote control for the tv. There was no shower door or curtain in the bathroom, consequently the floor became very wet and slippery. This water ended in the floor of the toilet, very dangerous. The street noise was loud enough to cause broken sleep, waking two heavy sleepers on a number of occasions during the night. The breakfast was pathetic, only bread rolls, butter and jam or salami and cheese, it was far from a continental breakfast. Breakfast area was managed by a grumpy old lady. I would not recommend this Hotel.

      Location - close to metro, rail station and city centre, clean room

      Poor bathroom - hard to take a shower; no shampoo provided (it's critical for air travellers); no heating in the room - it was really cold; just one electric plug - hard to charge electronic devices; poor breakfast.

      sound insulation is very bad. Too many noises made me hard to fall sleep.

      It was not as bad as I expected after reading opinions. Room was not bad, breakfast was good

      Smell inside my room was rather bad (some desinfectants?). The place is a bit noisy to sleep at open balcony doors

      Fel verouderd hotel, zelf geen 1 ster waard ! Moet een zeer grondige opknapbeurt krijgen ! Vergane glory

      This was my repeated visit with Manhattan. I appreciate an easy access of the hotel from the nearby metro station as well as an easy transfer to my meetings places. I appreciate also the personal responsibility of the staff in solving my special logistic problem. The forgotten personal documents were promptly mailed by express mail to my address. I appeciate it very much.

      It is a very old hotel which seems to have been never renovated. Possibly the worst I have seen in Brussels. One should stay there if there is no other alternative than sleeping on a bench of a park or of a railway station.
