Hotel Chambord
Ranked #110 of 199 Hotels in Brussels
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Things that could have been better: open the windows to the hallways to allow for air flow. However, we did this ourselves, and it was fine. Our request for more towels seemed to have been forgotten, but we were able to snag some one our own (shhh). Seriously, that's it. It's a great place to stay, unless you're planning on spending all your time in Brussels in a hotel room, and wouldn't that just be a little sad?

Things to keep in mind: It's an older building, and, even though it has an elevator, it's quite small. We squeezed in with our luggage, so be cautious about that.

Hotel Chambord is a simple place to stay, but they know how to keep their customers happy. Upon arrival, we were helped with every. single. thing. we asked for. We got recommendations for the front desk (honest ones; one guy said he doesn't eat in Brussels often because of the fact that he just works rather than lives here). Breakfast buffet was quite good, though some might dislike the floppy bacon and semi-wet eggs. Air conditioning in the lobby, though non in the rooms. Window to the room wouldn't open but moved quite painlessly to a (nicer) room (with a balcony) on another floor.

The location is good; right on one of the main roads. It's still a lot of walking, at least from Midi. We were kind of wusses and took a cab when luggage was involved.

Lovely hotel, better than we hoped. Nice and clean although the pillows where a bit flat. Also there was no air con or fan and the window barely let any breeze through so we were really hot. Otherwise though the room was nice - we had bath with lovely hot water, and a TV. Huge apologies to the chambermaid, my partner caught a bug before we got there and ended up blocking up the sink with vomit. We were unable to sort it out.

Buffet breakfast was fab, loads to choose from. I would say I'd go back but I'm too embarrassed about the mess in the basin.

Room was a bit shabby/chic, the curtains weren't drapped very nice, other minor things. Nice art deco look.
When we stayed here, the hotel was renovated from the outside. We did not know until we arrived. So our balcony did have a nice view over Brussels, but there was construction going on. Would have been nice if we were told before!
Room is basic and small, and has a good location in the centre. Close to shops and you can even walk to the Grote Markt.
One big thing: no airconditioning and it was very very hot, because outside the temperature raised to 36 degrees Celcius! So bring a fan if you go in the summer.

Stayed here with work for one night.

Room was a decent size but smelt like it needed a bit of airing! Shower pressure was terrible - more of a trickle.

Room had a balcony overlooking a busy road which was very noisy from about 5.30am onwards so sleep was disrupted.

Also saw a pest control worker wandering round reception which is never a good sign.

If I'd have paid 60 Euros for this then I would have been happy. My company actually paid 265 Euros so I felt truly robbed in such an average hotel!

Breakfast was fine. Decent buffet selection.

stayed there for a week for a business meeting - well located right next to metro and colse to EC buildings, a 10-15 minute straightforward walk into town.

Hotel was ok - check in fine - room ok but nothing special. Shower was good but soap despenser empty and was never refilled.

Breakfast was fine.

WiFI not included and quite expensive

Don't bring large suitcases as the lift is very small!

I spent two nights at the Chambord in February 2013. My experience accords with that of most other reviewers.

Staff are very friendly and helpful; they are liberal with 24-hour wifi passes (although free wifi is one of the benefits of booking through their own website); the position is very good, on top of a metro station, and a short walk from either the European business area or the city centre. There are a few bars and restaurants in the immediate area. The hotel's own breakfast room is airy and pleasant and the food is of good quality and fresh, although the selection is somewhat limited. The room I was allocated was decorated in a rather dreary brown but was otherwise fine, and the bed was decently comfortable.

Hotel prices in Brussels seem to go up and down faster than a yoyo on acid, probably in response to demand from big conferences and meetings, but when the price is moderate, the Chambord is good value for money.

There are many positive aspects of this hotel, but also a few flaws that makes med rate it average. To start with the positive things, I found the staff very friendly and helpful. Written information said wifi would cost, but actually it was given for free (24 hrs) once you got an access code form the front desk. And it worked perfectly. About location, the hotel is ideally situated between the EU offices in the Troon area and downtown Brussels. A metro entrance is just outside the hotel door, so very convenient. My room on the fifth floor was clean, with a little veranda, and a nice view of Brussels. This would have been excellent in summer, but it was winter and it was cold. The little heater could not at all keep the room warm when the temperature went below zero. Another negative was the water pressure in the bathroom. Maybe because it was the fifth floor, water was only trickling slowly out of the tap, making a shower a demanding task. But it stayed warm as long as I showered. A colleague experienced cold water only after a few minutes. Another colleague complained about the smell of sewer in the room. There is no minibar, so if you get thirsty, you have to go down to the ground floor with the miniature elevator and find the vending machine having a limited variety of drink options. The breakfast was good, although the access from the ground floor was up through a steep and twisted staircase. All in all an adequate hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floors may have better water pressure than on the upper floors (5th and 6th).
