“Brussels Break”
Reviewed October 2, 2007

Took the car to Belgium and spent three nights at the Best Western.
Right opposite the Park Cinquantenaire with its wild parakeets and a stone's throw from the metro and trams.
Free parking just down the road (if you go in the right direction - ask at the desk) and we didn't need to use the car once in the city.
Lovely foyer, large clean spacious room with fully stocked drinks cabinet and interesting breakfast room for the inclusive breakfast.
Three nights for the price of two was a hugely attractive offer to good to miss.
Would definitely visit here again.

I booked this hotel a a few nights during the summer of 2006.

Here are my thoughts.

Good Points:

Friendly Staff & Service (Most of the time). Free Continental Breakfast, (it was Free when i stayed there). Gym, I just loved the Sauna. Good Location, Near to Subway etc.

Bad Points

During my stay the Hotel A/C was not working, No Fans available, Complained to Manager that i could not sleep because of the heat, he ''Suddenly'' found me a room that i has A/C Working (quite surprised me).
Stay away from the Mini-Bar, Extortion Prices, I mean something like €5.00 for a Can of Coke, €4.00 for a bag of Crisps and almost €9.00 for a bottle of beer.

Overall

I would say my stay was OK, i would probably choose another hotel the next time i go to Brussels.

I stayed at the BW Park Hotel this August on a business trip to Brussels. I was pretty upset when I heard that the inviting company booked rooms at this place because I've been there before and I did not like it at all.

The same on this trip: total disappointment!
The lobby is pretty small, which makes it look cozy and home, but that is all I can say on the positive side.

The room was located on the 5th floor, small, dark, a bit smelly and poorly equipped.
The bathroom only had a shower and a plastic sink, the overall design was old-fashioned and cheap.
The bed was around 3ft wide. The entire room was probably 7ft wide. Not too much space for that much money.

The tv set was smaller than my laptop screen, so I decided to watch some dvds on my laptop instead.

The breakfast "English breakfast buffet" was included in the price.
But it was poor, too. Small selection of bread, no fresh fruits, no nothing. I had to wait 10 minutes for my coffee, so I was almost done with the breakfast

They charged me 150 Euros, which is a joke for that mess. At Le meridien, you pay 170 and you get all the amenities from a "real" 4 star hotel.

Well, if you need a cheap place to stay over the weekend, it might be ok, but for business traveller, who need some relaxation, better stay away.

I have stayed here twice, each time in the summer and in a single room. The single rooms tend to be available on hotel websites at a good rate, in my experience single rooms are a bit rare. Even though I had been very happy on a previous stay, I found some of the other reviews a bit scary so went with some anticipation. However, as on my other stay, the location on the backside facing the nice back yard, and with the window open, allowed a very pleasant sleep in the summer, and air conditioning was not needed. The breakfast was very good, although I do agree with those who noted the lack of evident willingness to refill teapots, etc. on the part of staff.

The single room was actually very large compared to many doubles I have stayed in, the only small part being the bed, which was however quite comfortable. My only small issue was the drain plug on the bath, whose holder came detached.

As others have mentioned, the location is not central but easily reached on the metro. If you are a museum hound this is in an excellent location near a museum complex, but much of the action in Brussels is downtown, so one would need a metro pass and can't stay out too late.

On a previous trip this year I found that this property was never listed at a reasonable rate (so did not stay there); during the busy spring season they must be getting rack rate, which is rather high. But in summer, I found my stay a great deal and would certainly stay there again.

Nice hotel and good location near the underground station and the park. The breakfast was OK, internet didn’t work. The hotel needs some repair. A bit overpriced.

This hotel suffers from incredibly bad service and bad attitude towards the guest.

1. Although it was -8 degrees outside, there was no hot water to shower with. The reception staff did not care about the problem and blamed the guests for not knowing how to open the water. After 50 complaints they admitted the hotel's old water system is bad.
2. Terrible breakfast and they are 2 lazy to refresh the food or serve coffee/tea.
3. The staff is very unfriendly and does not like to help the guest with area information. They even gave us WRONG information several times until we understood from other guests that they do this intentionally.
4. There is no laudnry service on the weekend although they do not write this anywhere.
5. Internet connection stopped working and they refused to do anything to fix it.
6. the beds are old, small and extremely uncomfortable
7. Housekeeping enters your room without knocking EVEN when the do not disturb sign is on the door.
8. They really give the impression that the guest is unwanted.

TERRIBLE HOTEL - DO NOT STAY HERE!!

My stay at the BW Parkhotel was wonderful, and I had a much better experience than the other reviewers.

To begin, I would absolutely stay here again. The hotel is not so easy to find without a map, but once you know where it is, it is easy to get to (a few stops on the subway) and in a nice location. There is a nice big park across the street, it's in a quiet residential area, and there are some nice restaurants around the hotel.

I had a room on the top floor facing the garden. The room was clean and nice in every way. The breakfast buffet was really good. The staff was nice, and the hotel seemed secure (I didn't have problems with the locks as another reviewer had).

The price was good, and I think it's a great bargain.
