It is a 2 star hotel located in the heart of Brussels, with the closest Metro stop being the Bourse (only 250 meters away). One can enter through a gate that opens onto a courtyard where the reception is. When we went it was near Christmas time and it was decorated. The rooms are not too big but the hotel in general is very good, especially for its location.
The best thing is definitely the price. Two nights in a double with breakfast for only 87.17 euros. The only downside is the difference of a room to another. The location is not in the Louise Square, it's 2 tram stops from this, and the hotel is 300 meters from the tram stop. The situation is very good. Breakfast very good.
The first time I traveled to Brussels I stayed at the Bedford Hotel Brussels, which is a 4 star hotel that is a bit old, but still very convenient. It´s not easy to find a hotel in the center of Brussels at an affordable price. Its location is unbeatable: it is less than a 5 minute walk from L'Etuve Street (where you can find the Manneken Pis) and costs 55 € per night (for a double room) with breakfast included. The truth is that the hotel is not bad, although it is quite old, which can be clearly seen in its decor (lots of marble and gold) and outdated furniture. But we were very lucky, because although we had booked a double room, we were given a sort of quadruple room. I mean, they were two rooms connected (although one had no window), each with two 90cm beds. The bathroom was also quite spacious with a large tub and double sink. It is a very large hotel, with 326 rooms, conference rooms, a large conference center, business center, gym, piano bar, parking for 200 vehicles and a small shop. The breakfast room was huge (they also do banquets) and the breakfast was pretty stocked-up with all kinds of pastries, assorted meats, natural fruit juices, assorted breads, yogurt, etc.. If you don´t mind staying in a hotel a little bit old, the Bedford is a good choice for you.
A good enough hotel with heating, a fine bathroom, super clean sheets and a room that just barely passes (47 euros with breakfast). If you have to pay more look at other things. The neighborhood is Arabic but like everything the center of Brussels, a little here a little there, but the rest is full of young women with scarves and people of all colors. I didn't hear any noises at night and felt safe. I came in at 20:00 and went to eat at a nearby bar (alast chicken) and did not die in the attempt (which is not the Bronx in its heyday). The stop is right next Clemenceau.
This is very good and modern hotel located in the heart of the Brussels' European District, not far from the European Commission building. The rooms are very spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the decor is great. All rooms feature a 42-inch TV and free internet. There is a cafe, lounge area, playground for the kids and a terrace. Good value for money and ideal if you're in Brussels for a few days.
A great location if you're going to be in the city for a short time, as you have the metro next door (La Bourse metro station), and Grand Place is just 400 metres away. It took us a while to find the entrance of the hotel, as there's a small door tucked away on the Rue Auguste Orts, or you can walk through the cafe. We arrived on Friday afternoon, so the cafe was quite lively. The reception is really small, and the room was quite nice, although also a little small, but with two balconies overlooking the street. The bathroom as very nice, and there as another balcony from it. The breakfast was included, served in the cafe overlooking the street, and was very comprehensive for a small hotel. The hotel staff are very nice.
As the name suggests, this hotel is in the Grand Place, the nerve centre of Brussels, where you can visit the famous City Hall. It's not difficult to find! It belongs to the famous hostel 2G04, which is cheaper and slightly less central. To check in, you must go to the hostel. If you fly to Charleroi (Ryanair), catch the bus to the centre of Brussels; buy tickets in the airport before boarding (13 euros). The bus will take you 40 minutes to the train station Midi-Zuid. Your best option there to get to the hostel is a taxi or a tram. A cab will be about 9 euros.
Once you've checked in, it's a 10 minute walk to the hotel. They will give your electronic key, and you can come and go whenever you want. We had a private room with double bed for about 30 euros per night per head. Private bathroom and a lovely room ... unfortunately there was a problem with the electricity, so we moved to a bigger, more beautiful room but it was a twin, rather than a double. Luckily, my girlfriend didn't mind, and we slept huddled together. Anyway ... I really recommend this hotel for its proximity to the Grand Place.
I stayed at this hotel in May 2011. It is 150 metres from Brussels' main train station, and minutes from the famous Grand Place. The neighbourhood is pretty quiet, with several restaurants nearby. The reception staff were very friendly, and to our surprise, the room was huge. There's a bathroom complete with all the amenities you could want, and a spacious room with a double bed. The light from the window was plentiful. The rooms are clean and well-soundproofed. Breakfast is served in a small room with large windows. It has a bit of everything, although I found it a little bit lacking for a 4-star hotel. The nationality of the clients was quite varied, but predominantly Spanish. Families, older couples and young couples. I recommend the hotel.
We had been told it was near the Central Station, but we didn't realise how close it was - just a 3 minute walk away. The guy at the reception was very friendly and welcoming. We got our keys and went up to our room; to our surprise it was two floors, with very steep stairs. The bed was upstairs, the bathroom and closet below. It was a little uncomfortable, but not too bad. The best thing about the hotel is its location, close to everything (4 min from the Grand Place). The worst thing was the pillow, which was very uncomfortable. We asked to change them, but they brought us more of the same.
