The hotel was in a great location with lots of local facilities. The room was a decent size, clean and pleasant. Perfect for a weekend stay. The staff were super friendly and helpful.
The only downside was there was no kettle or tea/coffee facilities in the room.
I would definitely stay here again. Great value for money.

"surprisingly luxurious & right off Rogier Square"
I had stayed at the Hilton on Rogier Square before (and actually had some issues there) so this time I thought I would try the Progress given that it is also just off the Square and also given the good reviews.
When I arrived outside the building, I was a bit weary as it looked like a residential building but as soon as I walked in I was very pleasantly surprised by the luxury, the light, the amenities, the staff and everything.
The room was really nice, only minor point was that the leather armchair was worn, but everything else was very well looked after. Comfy big bed, clean sheets and bathroom, big desk, there's even an espresso machine! (and a mini-bar). Wifi was free and very fast, and the breakfast buffet was also included and adequate (I was surprised that the muesli had coco pops in it instead of raisins, so I swapped it for scrambled eggs and bacon, so it was all good :)). I was really close to both the European Commission where I had business and 2 very good grill restaurants where I had dinner. Lovely surprise and I will definitely stay there again, instead of the much more expensive Hilton or the Sheraton at the Square.

This Norwegian chain hotel has all the creature comforts Scandinavians are known for. It has bright modern lines, cheery 1960s design furniture, and the breakfast offers a generous buffet of egg dishes, cheeses, cold meats, smoked fish, breads, pastries, vegetables, fruits, both fresh and stewed. Coffee is excellent.
The metro is right outside the hotel door, and all sights and museums are within a short walking distance from the hotel itself.

Overall the staff where excellent but the room although clean needed some maintenance.
For example the door handle was loose & the show was not working properly.
Also the paint work on the wall was staring to peel & it would have been nice to have a kettle in the room and have the opportunity to make some tea. The breakfast was good & the staff as always were very helpful but the hotel is starting to look tired and could do with some brightening up.

Brussels’ smallest district, Saint-Josse-ten-Noode lies north-east of the city centre, near the Botanic Gardens and the Gare du Nord. It’s a lively, densely populated neighbourhood of North African and Turkish communities with lots of young people. Fruit stalls and ethnic restaurants provide plenty of local colour. Cultural happenings take place in La Botanique, an arts centre set in a 19th-century greenhouse.
