We had a great stay at Urban Yard. It seems to be a brand new hotel with rooms and bathrooms spanking clean. The staff were very helpful and very responsive. The location is in very close proximity to the Brussels Midi station, 5 minutes walking time. The surrounding area is pretty dirty though and that unfortunately goes with Brussels in general. Compared to like Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Rome etc, Brussels was the dirtiest place we came across in Europe. The hotel on the other hand was the cleanest and the newest place we stayed in all of Europe. However, we didn't feel unsafe around the hotel or Brussels in general though some earlier guests had commented about that. If you are goign to Brussels we highly recommend this hotel.
