I flew BRU-ADD-ZNA-ADD-FRA in 2012 (all ET except ADD-FRA on LH). There was a business lounge (in both terminals 1 and 2, if memory serves) and I found transit to be fine in both directions. Not luxurious, but very far from "the worst airport ever". At the time there was a lot of building work going on, so I can't imagine it's any worse 5 years on.
