Modern, creative, inspiring and near the center of Brussels. It is a hotel whose originality impressed me. When you walk into it it immediately smells fresh. I don't know why but it smells great. The buffet breakfast is substantial and its hours are from 7:00 to 10:00 in the large dining room on the ground floor. Midweek the hours are no problem, but I recommend getting breakfast early on the weekends, because the room gets full and you may have to wait in line. One thing I noticed was that they put a sudoku on the table so you can start the day by exercising your mind. As far as the room goes, I was in 721, and the wall is painted in a style that reminds me a little of something by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. Each room is painted by a different artist and one of the walls has a brief biography of the author who designed your room with their email address if you want to write to them. The bed was very comfortable and there was a wall to wall window. One thing I thought was so funny was that on Saturday night you could hear the music from Smoods, the hotel bar. My room was on the 7th floor and I didn't hear much, but I'm guessing the first floor guests were probably disturbed by the noise. Anyway, this was not even a blip on my radar other nights. The bathroom has a large mirror and I loved the shower, with immediate hot water. The bus stops for trams 92 and 94 that connect you to the rest of the city are directly in front of the hotel. The nearest Metro stop is the Botanique, which is about 50m from the hotel. There is also a supermarket across the street if you need to pick something up. For photographers there are 2 points to consider. If possible, choose a room on the 7th floor (the highest) because from there the sunrise views are spectacular. Also, as you're leaving the hotel on the same street, there is a church on the left, tucked away a little that you can see on weekends, and if you combine the right lighting in slow motion combined with the tram crossing you can get a good amount of playfulness in your photos. If I had to rate this hotel between 0 and 10 I would opt for a 9.
We got a weekend deal for a weekend with breakfast and late check-out with a great price. The hotel has great location to visit the city center. Is one step away from the Grand Place. Also very close to the central station, even if you're loaded with luggage it's easy to ride to the hotel. Breakfast is pretty full, but a bit lacking in fruit.
This is an excellent hotel located in a long avenue in downtown Brussels, a 10 minute walk of the historic building of the Exchange, and the corresponding Metro called 'Burse' (Bag), allowing very comfortable and easy access to go to the famous Grand Palace and the rest of the city's nerve center. It's a business hotel-modern and functional. The double rooms, or single use in my case, are quite spacious, with twin beds together, comfortable mattress, a well equipped bathroom, heating, quite spacious closet and a desk with chair, with space to work well with a laptop. Complimentary WIFI on the floor where I was the scope was good, and the password is on your card :). On the negative side of the room, the TV was pretty old and the glass partition in the bathroom doesn't prevent floods when you shower. The ground floor of the hotel where the reception and the breakfast room is very nice with a relaxing space as a room right at the entrance, with comfortable leather sofas that invite conversation, which also must be a kind of bar, but we weren't there long enough to find out. The front desk people are super attentive and help you in everything you ask them, plus they ask you immediately where you're from and they spoke Spanish to us from the beginning. The breakfast is complete with sweet and savory options. The breakfast area is very bright and pleasant. Assuming that all hotels in Brussels are expensive, this is one more within that group, if I'm not mistaken, the night around 150 €, but the excellent location and the level of comfort it offers, compared with other pricing options. In short, a business-traveler hotel or for people of high purchasing power who can afford certain luxuries, comfortable and modern, equipped with Free WiFi, has a privileged location near the metro stop 'Burse' (Bag), but is expensive, very expensive in my opinion. Finally, a detail I did not like related to the price: even though we paid well in advance we had to pay 7 and change per night for tourist charges. Not sure if it's a Brussles thing or just from this hotel. Either way, it's robbery. If you travel business class and can afford to pay these prices, it is a very good option, even considering similar hotels in the area, but not a hotel for a traveler or normal tourist, which is what we usually are, and always try to look for cheaper options.
Mercure Brussels Center Louise is located a short distance from the famous Avenue Louise, one of the main shopping streets in Brussels. You can easily reach the city center either on foot or on one of the trams. The hotel has 201 rooms and suites with a fully equipped kitchens.
I went to Brussels for work recently and stayed at this hotel in the city centre. I was in a single room, so maybe that's why I was a bit disappointed ... for such an expensive and famous hotel, I was expecting more. The room had lime walls, a warm and friendly atmosphere with decorations etc, but the small bathroom was a major flaw.
The luxury touch was there - they gave me a bathrobe and slippers, left a bottle of water on the bedside table - but there wasn't much more to recommend it. For example, the wifi wasn't free, something that I was really frustrated by in the year 2010 in a 4 * hotel. I had a problem when shaving, as the plug did not fit my electric razor and there was only one outlet available in the small bathroom, very poorly placed on the hairdryer stand, so I had to shave "blind".
However, I should note that the service is excellent, and the lobby and bar on the right of the entrance are great to relax and unwind a little. The breakfast buffet has plenty of choices: freshly squeezed natural juices, rich pastries, fried eggs, omelettes made to order, etc. The hotel is located in a very central shopping area of Brussels, with metro and tram stops nearby, but as I said, this is a very expensive hotel, and I'd expect more for the price.
This is a highly recommended hotel to stay at when traveling to Brussels on the basis of quality for price. While it is not in the center of town, it is still not too far. Walking from the hotel to the center takes about 25 minutes, but the Trone Metro Station is five minutes away. In addition, at the Luxembourg Square, which is one block away, there are several buses that go to the center. Right there you will find the train station Gare du Luxembourg. It is practically attached to the European Parliament, in a very quiet area, with little traffic or noise. The hotel has 262 rooms spread over six floors in a very new and very intricate both in details and in cleaning. The hotel, part of the Marriot chain, has a bar with an elaborate list of drinks open until 2am or so, a restaurant with an even more elaborate menu with good working hours and a small shop that is open 24 hours a day where you can buy anything such as drinks, snacks, liquid contacts, toothpaste ... And it also has 24-hour room service. That is it as far as food is concerned. It also has a swimming pool, a small gym and spa, meeting rooms, parking, and wireless internet ... As for the rooms, they are well-furnished and large. There are large single beds, television, iron and ironing board, a small dressing area and connections to the computer. The bathroom is more or less the same, with shower and bath, with varied amenities, hairdryer ... The bad thing, as they have in the store lobby area, there is no mini-bar. Yes, they have tea and coffee and a tea variety. The price is not too expensive. Approximately 60 euros for the double room without breakfast, but they have a great weekend rate if you stay three nights between Thursday and Sunday, where you only pay for 2 nights. And on weekends clients do not pay for the parking. The bar is a little more expensie. A mixed-croque monsieur sandwich costs 12 euros. Yes, it is a good size with little salad. Or a cheeseburger and fries costs 16 euros. Actually, it is a good hotel, with a very good service, both in reception and in different bars. Virtually all employees speak English, French and Spanish. The only complaint one can make would be the location, although it is far away and connections by underground or bus or train is spectacular. Also, there are many bars where breakfast for a very affordable price.
I've been at the Husa President a week. We got everything super cheap through the internet. It's spotless and the breakfast is amazing: tomato juice, coffee, toast, pastries, fruit, everything. And take some apples for the road in case you get hungry. Very friendly staff. Much better than I expected. Just one complaint: the 5 euro per room per day tax that no one warned us about. In addition, we had to leave a deposit of 100 euros from which they deducted those taxes and refunded the rest. That caught me by surprise and I did not like it. Otherwise, great.
