“Business hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The Hilton City Centre is a five minute walk from the North Station (itself around 10 min train ride from the airport), located in a kind of business district and a convenient location for all those working for the European Commission's science services. Chweck-in was friendly and competent, the standard room though causes claustrophobia. It is one of those hotels where you open the door to your room and you are almnost banging into your bed. I upgraded to the next category which was spacious, sparsely furnitured room, clean, a nice bathroom (with no extra heating) - beware it can happen that if you are taking a relaxed shower that the sensor operated light goes out resulting in some hectic arm wagging. The gym on the first floor, they also have a spa with Sauna and Turkish Bath. Right now (which in Brussel means for a long time already) scaffolding is put up at the front side of the hotel and taken down on the side (where the small rooms are). So if you are checking into a higher category room, you may see some workers walking aín front of your window. All in all, a convenient location, 15 minutes walk from the Grande Place and the museums.

We stayed at the Hilton for 3 nights. The location was great and the bed was confortable. I know we went in January and it was snowing but the bathroom was beyond cold and the shower was certainly not hot enough to make you forget about the temperature of the room! Really nice staff though and I wouldn't rule out staying at this hotel again.

A word of warning: nothing is open in Brussels on a Sunday and alot of good attractions are closed over the winter months.

We chose to stay at Hilton Brussels City as we always look to stay in a Hilton brand when we travel, and the hotel was offering a good deal.

The first impressions of the hotel are good, it looks very smart from the exterior and the neighbourhood (which is a bit of a construction zone at the moment) seems to be the area for the large hotels (Sheraton, Marriott ect).

The lobby is pleasant and airy and had a nice buzzing atmosphere, the person who greeted us at the reception was absolutely fantastic. From the moment we reached the desk we were made to feel at home and he informed that as HHonours Gold we'd been upgraded to the Junior Suite.

We arrived several hours before check in and there wasn't any question about checking us in immediately (this is always important for us when travelling).

Our suite was on the 5th floor and had windows that faced into an an atrium (not the most picturesque but to be expected in much of Europe). The suite was a good size and had huge amounts of storage and a good selection of sofa (a large chaise and several comfortable chairs). There general look was that it was bordering on dated and was definitely worn in places... but nothing major. The only thing that irked us was that our bed was two single beds pushed together- hardly comfortable.

Breakfast was below the general Hilton standard, there wasn't a great choice of hot food but the pastries and things were delicious.

Every member of stand we encountered throughout our stay was outstanding, always happy to help and go the extra mile. Little things like booking us a car, and printing off travel information is what counts.

We will definitely stay here again next time we're in the city and i'd recommend it to friends. The rate for our room was 559euros, I wouldn't say it's worth that but it was great as an upgrade.

How can Hilton be happy applying their name to this place? The rooms are small, dark and dingy with uncomfortable beds. The bathrooms are sad and worn, with dodgy fittings. The corridors are gloomy with an occasional stick of worn furniture The public areas are shabby and untidy and its expensive. Oh my God...Never again...I rarely write such damning reports but the state of this place warrants it. With the loss of the Conrad there is no decent hilton group hotel in Brussels. Sad but true

Otherwise excellent but internet charge in the room is excessive. Internet chanrges should be included in the room (the lobby wireless internet was free). Good breakfast but could have more fruit and vegetables. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was not large but had everything for a short business stay. I would stay again if I have business in the area.Access to the hotel from the airport via Gare du Nord is excellent and fast.

Room Tip: Great location, easy to get to from airport via Gare du Nord

I stayed here for two nights as part of a delegation of 100 people, so we took a fair amount of the rooms.
The standard single room was very small, but very comfortable with enough storage space and amenities (that once were used on night one were not replenished for night two) and having a good array of international TV was welcome. Bathroom felt a bit dated but other than this, the room was ok.
The staff were polite, but not very knowledgable. I had two requests that struggled to get answers.
In summary, it was OK
