Non-smoking hotel. Bathroom of room smelt strongly of cigarette smoke on entry. Restaurant noted to be open till 2230 declined to offer food at 2210. Asked at reception whether there any local bars or restaurants 'No'. Asked if there was room service - 'yes'. Return to room. No menu in room - ring Room Service - 'ask Reception' - Reception rung - 'menu should be in room' - checked - it was not. Rang and asked Reception for menu 'there's only pizza and soup - leek soup'. Decided I would be better of dieting. Only two more days thank goodness.

Booked through Hotels.com. Great price for a family suite for 4 nights over Christmas. Easy check in. The map they give at reception is ok, but the print is very small. Get a map of the metro / trams before you go if you can. Ticket machine at Thomas stop was not working during our stay. Go to Gard Du Nord station where all the trains, trams and metro run from and the machines work.Room was ready when we arrived. It was pretty clean overall, just some dust missed behind the unit under the tv, which we only discovered when we pulled unit out to plug in the desk lamp. Cleaners came and refreshed the room everyday which was great. Only thing was they tended to call quite early 8am. Not a problem if your up early anyhow. We liked a lie in, so just asked them politely if they’d come back after breakfast when we’d have gone out for the day. They didn’t seem to mind and were very lovely. Bath plug was missing from our room and so we let the gentleman on reception know in the morning, and by the time we had had breakfast it had been replaced. Sorry I didn’t get the gentleman’s name, but many thanks to him for such a swift service. Lobby area is stunning with a library, pool table and lounge. Breakfast had a good variety of continental and cooked items. The guide for the cooking of eggs in the hot bath egg thing is perfect. Bar staff are friendly and love to have a chat. Drinks are pricey but very good. Doesn’t make sense that a g&t was more expensive than a cocktail with lots of shots in like a Long Island ice tea for example. Also, on a couple of occasions both the bar receipt and dinner receipt had items on multiple times which is confusing. We queried this and the bar staff pointed out the extra items had been voided (shown by a tiny v symbol next to the item), but did not explain why this was being done. overall a wonderful stay and would book here again.

We came as a couple for my birthday to visit for the first time. The room was ready in time and the check in all right, the receptionist was friendly. We have received a room on the 3rd floor, number 3329. The room seemed good but unfortunately wasn’t because was noisy and there was mould. We had air conditioning, coffee machine, toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. I have requested for another room because we could not sleep, the noise was terrible you could hear everything like housekeeping cleaning, people walking, people talking, people closing/opening the doors, etc and we have received a room on the second floor, number 2440 offered by the receptionist named Price who tried to help but didn’t offered much info however the new room had no coffee machine, no bathrobes, no air conditioning and the same noise. We have requested bathrobes and slippers and the receptionist informed us that they don’t provide and that they forgot to remove them from the previous room, how rude and unprofessional however they provided us later on with them. Breakfast is expensive for what they provide, not many choices. Food in general is limited and expensive. The corridors are smelling like food you can feel it on your clothes. We have asked to refill our shower gel and receptionist offered soap instead saying that she doesn’t know where housekeeping keeps them, a joke. Was not a nice experience for my birthday and I don’t see the 4 stars in this hotel. The room service was good and the gentleman really professional. My fiancé tried to make me a surprise for me asking the receptionist Saturday evening for a slice of cake or any deserts with candle, he wanted to buy but unfortunately they said that they don’t have anything not even a candle and they advised him to go and buy from outside. I definitely don’t recommend for couples, pregnant women’s or any visitors.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing the President Brussels hotel for your stay in Brussels and for taking the time to evaluate your experience with us. We are sorry to read that some of our services didn't meet your expectations. We read your feedback with the utmost attention. Regarding the noise and the smell in your room, we are glad we could find a solution and move you to a different room. We are happy that you appreciated the additional complimentary slippers and bathrobes provided to you in both rooms despite the room being of a standard category, for which normally no such amenities are featured. Our standard rooms are equipped with coffee facilities but not with a coffee machine. This room category does not have any air conditioning, but rather a central heating. We are sorry if soap was provided to you and not shower gel and are disappointed that we could not provide you with a candle for your birthday cake. We will make sure to follow up on these comments. We will forward your observations regarding the breakfast and the food to the corresponding departments. We are glad that the room service was to your liking and the service professional. We hope to welcome you again soon in our hotel, The President Brussels Hotel Team

Arrived at hotel for my birthday and it took 15 minutes to wait in the queue to check in. One arriving at our room the layout was lovely and spacious and the place was clean. We left our bags and got a taxi to Brussels central. Came back and around 11pm our room stank of marijuana and tobacco. My partner who has never smoked in his life and had throat cancer went downstairs to politely ask the reception if they could find who was smoking and ask them to stop, considering it was a NO SMOKING hotel. My partner came upstairs and 20 minutes later reception arrived at our room and we let him in and he advised us there was no smell at all. He said he would investigate. He never got back to us. The smell was potent for two hours until it faded. After the smell had faded two young Women knocked on our door strangely also smelling of marijuana and advised us they got the wrong hotel room?? We stayed the night after to which there was occasional smells of smoke but not as strong. On checking out we advised the gentleman on reception to whom responded that we weren’t the only ones who had noticed this?? Nobody ever came back to our room that night with an update or tried to at least help/compensate for our tarnish night and no apology offered at reception. I have emailed the company twice and twice been ignored. If you wish to stay in a room and get high off someone else’s supply whilst have stranger knock on your door, this is the place for you.
