I know exactly what to expect so we are never disappointed.
Some of the staff members (like Matthijs) are amazing! Rooms are decent (we prefer the 'deluxe' rooms - even though we have been upgraded to a suite a few times, those are a bit depressing...). Hotel is a bit dated but location is good, walking from the Grand Place area is quiet safe (I have done this many times at 3 am on a Sunday, alone...). Walking to the train station is also ok and safe (if you follow the 'Vooruitgangstraat' route, I wouldn't recommend to walk to the station trough the back, under the bridge at night) Gym, sauna, steam room are quiet nice. Breakfast is basic but does the job for a few nights.
They also provide drink vouchers for elite members, they have always given me a few more after asking for it :-)
Don't try to expect too much and you will be fine...
Thanks for the points, it's exactly what I was looking for.

I will expect a tiny room, an OK breakfast, but a safe and relatively easy walking distance to the Grand Place and surrounds.

At 85 I guess I won't worry too much if it doesn't meet my lowered expectation.
