The hotel's Web site promises a "cosy, cosy, very cosy" spot, and indeed it is. Opened in 1958, the well-maintained Noga is packed with mementos of the Jazz Age, which include table lamps and black-and-white photographs of the period. There are rooms on four floors for two, three, or four people—larger rooms have sofas great for socializing. You can rent a bike, borrow a book from the library, or even order a picnic lunch to take sightseeing with you. The hotel is in
the popular Béguinage quarter, near the Ste-Catherine fish market.

Noga is a basic but well kept hotel located near a subway station and an easy 10 minute walk to the Grand Place. The rooms are basic, but clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is above average for a hotel in this category ( choice of breads, cereal, cold cuts, fruits, eggs, etc..) The staff is friendly and helpful. Overall, Noga offers good value for a budget traveller. We stayed at this hotel for several days and would recommend it to
friends without hesitation.

This was the best night's sleep of my entire trip. A big double bed with lots of pillows, a plain but quiet room, with little extras like a hall with infrared lights that go on when you put the key in the door, a safe in the closet, salon chairs, and a fridge stocked with a wide selection of local beers at very low prices. Enter a charming lobby with a mix of replicas and authentic items like a handpainted Austrian wardrobe. A welcoming sitting area
next to a bright and sunny breakfast room, with an included buffet breakfast all at 85e. The staff could not be more helpful. I reserved the room online, and was trying to coordinate with advance purchase of train tickets from Paris, and they were very patient and helpful as I cooridnted the dates.

I live in California but visit my mother twice a year in the South of Belgium. Since we discovered the Noga, my mother and I spend three days in Brussels before I fly back to the States. The Noga is the kind of hotel you wish you had in every city: -- Impeccably clean and well maintained -- Owners are so friendly and helpful, and always on the premisses -- Superb breakfast - hot and cold, pate, cereals, fruits, pastries, etc. (important because
it is my mother's and my favorite meal of the day) --Cozy, charming, lots of character --"Very quiet", each time we had a room facing the street and we always sleep with the window opened -- A short walk from the metro station -- Great price Note that I alway have all my gears (tickets, papers, my Apple-of-my-eyes Powerbook, plus all the stuff I always bring back to the States) with me when I stay at the Noga. No worry, this hotel is secure and very well managed. A wonderful experience. Looking forward to my next visit in April 04. Danielle Fafchamps
