I've stayed in many hotels all over the world and in a number of Sofitel's. In my experience, they are a solidly good brand which you can count on. Don't be put off by the fact that the hotel looks more four star and than the traditional five star hotel on arrival. It doesn't have the grand lobby you might expect at this level but this is more than made up for by the rest of the facilities and its quirky art design. The Sofitel Brussels Europe is an excellent choice if you are going to the European Parliament or Commission or simply want a hotel that's slightly out of the Grand Place area. I like it, for two reasons - it's near Sablon which is a great shopping district and because the rooms are very well appointed - and more than that, the hotel just works seamlessly. They also have a great market in front of the hotel on Sunday mornings. I have stayed twice - the first time on business in September 2011 and the second time in November 2012 for the weekend to visit a friend. I asked for the same room on each occasion and it didn't disappoint. It is on the 7th floor - top floor - and overlooks Parliament and the park behind the hotel. It has a lovely view and gets the sun in the early evening when you're back from your business appointment or your shopping. The hotel is quietly chic with a small but nice bar and a large breakfast room on the ground floor. The centre of Brussels is a metro or taxi ride away. 10 minutes and you're pretty much everywhere you need to be. The chocolate shop on the right of the lobby caused me to put on a couple of pounds! Delicious! I will be back. I suppose the one thing it lacks is a swimming pool - although it does have a Hamman and curiously a nice terrace on the 7th floor overlooking the front of the hotel.
