We only stayed one night here but we would happily stay here again. The staff were very helpful and the room was excellent. The area it was located in was nice and it wasnt too far to walk into the city centre or you could take the tram which passes the hotel. Only negative is that there is limited parking... More

We arrived a couple to a stay of 2 nights to this Hotel as it seemed to give a good value according to the reviews. The staff was very kind and helpful on most needed. Two things I distinctly remember - A strange smell in the floors and the fact that we got two separate beds pushed together. When we... More

After two weeks of traveling all over France, my family and I stayed at the HC Brussels at the recommendation of a local friend. The price was MUCH lower than any French hotel we found and was luxuriously appointed with a lift, marble walls and bathrooms, great food (the breakfast buffet offered an artist chef making the omelet or Belgian...

This hotel is quite a distance from main Brussels attractions (say a minimum of 20-30 minutes on foot; there is a tramway nearby but no metro station) but located in a pleasant area of the city. Rooms are very clean and staff are good and helpful. Prices for miscellaneous charges (food and drinks) are very reasonable and Internet is free.... More

The staff was very friendly from the moment we came in and always ready to help, and everybody spoke english. The rooms were very clean and spacious and we never heard any noise from other guests. Quiet neighborhood and easy to get to the tram. Good breakfast. We can recommed this hotel, and we will stay there again.

Looked for a hotel outside the centre of Brussels and found the Catalonian hotel HC Brussels. Nice hotel, friendly staff that speaks English, French and Spanish. The hotel is easy to reach with tram 92 (if you don't like taxis). Not expensive, large room and a decent breakfast. I will definitely use it in the future.
