Residence les Ecrins is an ideal place to stay whether you are visiting Brussels for business or pleasure. It is ideally situated close to the St. Catherine metro stop and within walking distance of the Grand Place and other attractions. Guy is an exceptionally welcoming and friendly host. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Brussels.

The owners were very friendly. The breakfast was very good: if you wanted more, you would be given more! Very nice location in central Brussels, close to the major attractions. Excellent transportation links.

More like a Hotel then a Hostel, which was perfect for us. Was right in town and a short walk to everything. Breakfast was included which was a very nice touch

Amazing location, only 1 min walk from metro. (St Catherine) Major tourist attractions are near, about 10 min walk. ( Grand Place, Manneken Pis...) The room and bathroom was really clean, air condition, towels and hair dryer are available. The breakfast was very delicious. The staff is kind and helpful. Definitely we would stay here again.

Excellent living condition, clean and tidy, breakfast is nice, free wifi is good, good facilities, recommend to all of you who will stay in Brussels. 10 - 15 mins walk from city center. One minus point is someone shouting at the stairs at 7am...

The Residence is perfectly located the city center, close to everything one would like to see, in an area full of small restaurants, pubs, bakeries and medieval cathedrals, within walking distance to the art gallery and the palace,while at the same time it is quiet and safe. The rooms are small but clean, complete with all the advertised facilities. Breakfast is with fresh bakery. The staff are friendly, helpful and really nice. Next time in Brussels, I'll go back there.

No-frills hotel close to Place Saint Catherine station. I arrived a little late at night and received a warm welcome from Guy. There’s no elevator so be prepared to haul your luggage up the stairs if you got a room on one of the upper floors. Free breakfast includes generous servings of rolls, baguettes, jams and a choice of coffee, tea or orange juice. They also keep your luggage for free upon check out. You can easily walk to Grand Place in about 8-10 minutes.

This was the best place we stayed in. Guy or Gee was so friendly and welcoming. The room was like an apartment with a full kitchen. He left croissants on the door in the morning and there was orange juice and coffee in the room. It was a really nice touch. The bed was so comfortable and everything was so nice and clean. The next time we are in Brussels, we will definitely stay here again. Thank you for your warm hospitality.

We chose not to stay as our room was so close to a busy street that the noise was unbearable. We were on the first floor and not more than four feet from the street.

I loved staying here. The owner is incredibly cheerful and willing to help guests in any way he can. Centrally located. Wifi. Decent breakfast. Clean! We definitely got more than we paid for during our stay. I fully recommend this place. It's convenient, snug and safe.
