“Fairly reasonable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

The hotel is easy to find and travel to (its basically in a straight line from the centre of Brussels and a tram stop infront). Also there is two convenience shops within a minutes walk. The staff were generally friendly aside from one man on receptionwho was rather haughty. I had a single room and it was clean and generic but without tea making facilities thought the minibar was for chilling my own drinks. On the plus side the room had a nice HD TV and about 60 channels. Overall quite good.

During our visit to Belgium we had to move Brussels for the last night.
A long search I've done online All prices for 4 guests were very high, Suddenly I found on Booking.com the hotel Brussels Hotel Belgium.
An examination of prices and conditions I've seen that can accommodate 2 children under 14 in for free!
we were a little nervous when we got to the hotel but the hotel was located was not bad, room was clean and wide enough, contained two large double beds and breakfast (buffet) was good.
We paid 64 euros for 4 people in the room + 26 euros breakfast for children, a total of 90 euros for 4 guests, including breakfast.

The hotel is very well positioned and there is a tram stop (No. 94 to take you to Louise or downtown) just infront of it. Interior is very outdated, furniture is quite old and the bahtroom is even older. There was no heating on my first night there, the sink did not work, neither did the TV. Nevertheless, everything was fixed the next day. The staff is very helpful and kind.

Hotel very well located on Avenue Louise, close to centre and Louise/Ixelles areas. Buses and trams right opposite. 2 supermarkets and lots of small eateries right nearby. The rooms and beds are huge. Very clean and relatively quiet. The rooms have TVs and a minibar, big windows. No tea-making facility in the room, though. There is free WiFi and a computer for general use (but it wouldn't print my boarding passes...), and breakfast is available, bit I didn't try it. The man at reception helped me with finding restaurants and calling a cab. The decor is a bit oldish, but clean, so you can't fault it. I would say, for such a good location, definitely worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Avenue Louise. It is not noisy, and it's nice to see the city out...

Just spent two nights here. Luckily I didn't have to spend too much time in the hotel.

Location: Situated on Avenue Louise close to a tram stop which will take you close to the centre of the city close to the Palais de Justice. It is not central though and a cab from the city centre at night will cost you about 15-20 Euros. A cab from Midi station is about 10 Euros The brand shops at the (city centre) northern end of Avenue Louise are good with some nice independents on streets off it.

Hotel: The room was tidy and clean and if two or three are going to share for a short break, it may be good value. Receptionists are polite and efficient. The decor was not good - I would describe the walls as urinal green in two shades with frayed red carpet. Can't really say when this would have been in fashion. One of the beds was no more than a put up. The worse aspect was the shower - was on the second floor. The water pressure was no more than a dribble and barely warm.

Conclusion: If you can share with friends to keep costs down on a short break and can overlook its obvious deficiencies then it may be for you. Don't however expect luxury or even some of the accepted basics such as a good shower. Colleagues of mine stayed at the nearby Warwick Barsey for less money.- that is quite eclectic but nice and very comfortable although breakfast costs €29 (we ate in a great local cafe just up the road)-- I gave up my room there to accomodate a latecomer on our trip. Not a good idea!

Room Tip: If you like a good shower, go elsewhere...

I stayed at the Brussels Hotel for one night and will never go back. It was a waste of time and money. The rooms of these hotels are huge, almost so to the point that staying there feels intimidating. I was in a room with two stories, with one toilet on the first floor and a bathroom on the second floor. The room was dated and dirty. The bed was on the top story and the ground floor had a sitting area with a sofa and a TV. The sofa was so dirty that I could not bring myself to sit on it. This hotel has two different sides with rooms, the "nicer" side, with fresh paint in the corridors and a fairly ok outlook. The less nice side had flaky paint on the walls and was dirty and dark. Those staying in the nicer part might have better experiences, however I was disgusted and even scared to stay there. Also, I forgot something at the hotel and never got it back, even though I called in a few hours after I had left and many times after on different days for around two weeks after my stay. When I made inquirys about my lost items, I was met by arrogant and annoyed staff who were unhelpful. I do not recommend this place.

To get to The Hotel Brussels, you take the Metro from the Zund Station, either the #2 or #6 train to Avenue Louise station. The hotel is a good 750 km from the metro, so with luggage, it is a good 15 minute walk. As it is located about three tram stops from the corner of Avenue Louise and the Metro, it is better to just take the tram which literally stops in front of the hotel. Travel time from the Zund Station is about 20-30 minutes, but the trams and trains run regularly.
Avenue Louise is a shopper's paradise, but the hotel is in the suburbs so if you are looking to stay closer to Grand Place and the other historical sites, I would recommend looking elsewhere as it was a 30 minute ride to the center city to see what I was interested in.
Upon check in, I was greeted pleasantly by the gentleman working. I was assigned my room and went up. The room was small by the standards that I was accostumed to, but reading reviews in TripAdvisor left me expecting this. The bed was acceptable it was full size which was enough room for traveling by myself, the room was very clean, white sheets and comforter made it easier to determine this. Limited US channels on the TV. The bathroom is very small, I would suggest that anyone over 5'8" would have difficulties taking a shower. You step up into a very small compartment and the adjustable wand goes up and down and comes off. It is basically standing room only, so there is not a lot of flexibility. Anyone taller would have to bend over making it uncomfortable to shower. Stepping down, there is also not a lot of room, making it somewhat unsafe as the tiled floors are slippery. The toilet is also very close to the toilet, so a large person would have little room while using the facilities. Opened a window and it was quite pleasant.
Despite a Do Not Disturb sign left on the door, the housekeeper still entered the room. The bed was made and interestingly enough, the housekeeper took the empty cardboard from the used toilet paper roll but did not replace it. Also emptied was the trash can but not replaced.
I looked at the breakfast buffet which was offered at 15 euro, not worth it in my opinion as stores across the street offered food for less and did find places where similar items cost me only 8 euro.
Upon checking out, the front desk person asked if I used the mini bar. I had not realized that there was one. I had seen a paper in the room and assumed it was a comment card. When I had went back to get my bags, I looked at the paper and it was the menu for the bar. Scanning over the list and it was fairly priced based on typical hotel standards, soft drink 3 euro, mini bottles of liquor 6 euro, snacks 3 euro. I would have probably used the mini bar if I knew about it, but still going right across the street, you would save substantial money on the same items.
There is free wifi in the hotel and a free computer in the lobby for customer use at no charge, just extending courtesy to anyone waiting to use the computer, it would make sense that you limit your time if someone was waiting.
For 60 Euro a night, the room was priced right. There is great shopping on Avenue Louise and the tram is very convenient. Many restaurants make this suburban hotel a good choice for someone traveling on a budget.

Room Tip: As a suburban hotel, I think any room would be good. I am not sure if there were rooms with shared...
