There are many disadvantages of this hotel, but in the most important issues this is the hotel one just needs while in Brussels. The location is perfect, less than 15 minutes walk from the central train station (not 5, as stated on the hotel's website), and same distance from the historical city centre. The rooms are clean, but very small,... More

We stayed here for two nights and it satisfied all of our needs. The decoration is basic but everything is clean and at this value it's hardly an issue. Great location, places to eat and drink near and only a fifteen minute walk to Grand Place and 2 minute walk to Madou metro which allows easy access to Brussels Midi... More

Just back at the Hotel du Congres for another stay. This charming hotel continues to delight. The low price at weekends is amazing value. The courtyard garden is such a delight. Service is extremely friendly and helpful. I asked to stay on in my room till the evening (check out time is normally 1100) and for a reasonable 30 euros... More

Stayed here one night to attend a concert at the Cirque Royale. Perfect location to stay for that venue. The hotel is very basic. Not much decoration beyond the main lobby. The rooms are small and comfortable but pretty basic. The walls are a bit thin so you may want earplugs if you're a light sleeper. The breakfast was a... More

Before traveling to Brussels I read many reviews of hotels from budget to luxury. It seems there is always something to complain about for some people and so my expectations were not very high. However ,I must say that I found Hotel Du Congress a very nice hotel and the staff top professionals. The location is a short tram ride... More

Note that some of the rooms are in an annex which you get to by going out into the street and letting yourself in through a door. There are 5 rooms with the top two on the third floor up narrow stairs with no lift. Didn’t worry me as I only had a small light suitcase, but it could be... More

I went to Brussels on the 2014 New Year's eve. Of course, prices were quite high at this time. This hotel offered me a fair price close to underground station, tram stop, and within 15-20 min. walk to the city center. It was very quiet and clean place with good wifi connection and breakfast. I can recommend it to everyone... More

Good location and friendly staff - easy access to restaurants, European business quarter and city centre attractions. Basic, but perfectly adequate and well insulated rooms, with good free wifi. Downside was a room phone that didn't work, a very hard pillow (but, to be fair, I didn't ask for it to be changed) and a power point that was coming... More

I recommend Hotel du Congres both for its professional staff and Its cosy position near cirque Royal, the Royal Museums and last but not least the underground station of Madou. Confortable beds, good breakfast and decent prices. I would definitely recommend it.

The entrance of the hotel was OK, maybe a tiny bit tired. However, I had a bit of a shock coming into the room...it is a while that I have stayed in such a small basic room. Also, luckily I am not too too big or I wouldn't have fit into the shower. When I saw the bed, I was... More
