We were there for one night here on the fly. Good value for money. Got free parking just opposite the hotel on the street. The reception is in one part of the building and one need to go the other building , although connected to go to rooms. The lift is rather small but functional. Passage to the rooms are... More

I had chosen this hotel for its midway location between Gare Nord and Gare Central, the two primary railway stations in Brussels. My walk from Gare Nord to this hotel was uncomplicated and this was easy to find. The room was in the front of the hotel and while it was raining, I loved the view from the large window.... More

The location of this hotel can't be faulted. It's close to many popular locations in Brussels and gives easy access to the Grand Place (sights), Rue Neuve (shopping) and the EU district (business). It's also about a ten minute walk from the Central Train Station, from where the train takes you to the airport in about 20 minutes. I had... More

The one and only advantage of this hotel was its distance from the conference venue and the metro station (approximately 3 minutes). It was overpriced for a three star hotel (€220/night) with poor breakfast buffet, no elevator in my building, small room, a little dirty, without mini bar and in general not value for money. I wouldn't recommend it.

I never got the chance to stay at Hotel du Congres.i have had to cancel my reservations because u I could not travel to Brussels due to the strike by Eurostar staff on the dates that I had booked. I found it so disappointing that this hotel decided to charge me for the cancelation. They would not accept my amending... More

Hotel du Congres is conveniently located and their staff was usually very nice and receptive. They made sure to give me a room away from the street, which was certainly appreciated. Their breakfast spread wasn't bad, although perhaps a bit more expensive than I'd have hoped, given what you actually get for your money. Generally, I had no real complaints... More

This hotel is a heritage bldg. Our room had a chandelier with 15 ft ceilings. The king bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. Staff were friendly and gave good directions when asked. Location was about a 15- 20 min walk to major points of interest. Hotel did not have A/C due to heritage status and conversion issues but... More

I spent three nights at the Hotel du Congres. It was in a great location, with an 8-10 minute walk to the Grand Place. The room was very adequate, with everything you need in a hotel room. My biggest complaint was the time the cleaning staff would come to clean the rooms. In between 8:30 and 9:00 every morning. We... More

A friend of mine booked one of the three-person rooms at this place and we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. There was plenty of space for three people to co-exist, the bathroom was a decent size, and the beds were just fine too. No complaints about the location either. It's located in a very handy spot.

The Pros: The room was clean. The windows opened and the view was nice. For the most part, staff was friendly. The hotel was in a very good location. And, there IS a hairdryer in the room. Wifi was free and worked well from the 3rd floor. The Cons: There was no where to place soaps and shampoos in the... More
