Gresham Belson Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Evere
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is pretty far from the center but we had a rental car so it was very easy for us. You do have a Carrefour market nearby, some restaurants and public transport.
The room is large and very clean. The double bed was a little small for us as we are used to larger beds (this one seemed like a single person bed) but at least the mattress was comfortable.
You have a minibar in the room but it is not filled. You do have a complimentary water on the first day of your arrival and some coffee, hot chocolate, a little cracker.
The staff is very helpful, they speak very well English and they answered all our questions. The WIFI is free on the entire hotel but i think there is a limit of MB. If you need more MB you can ask at the reception (for some extra money. i guess).
The hotel has parking places (i don't know the prices, on booking.com they say 17Euro/night) but you can also find public parking places nearby.
The breakfast was very good and rich (yoghurts, cereals, pancakes, croissants, ham, cheese, sausages, beans, mushrooms, fresh vegetables, fried bacon, salads, fresh fruits, 3 kind of juices, tea, coffee etc).
We enjoyed our trip in Brussels and would come back here again (but only for a room with a larger bed).

Dear ,

We'd like to express out gratitude on behalf of the entire staff of the Gresham Belson Hotel with regards to your comment on tripadvisor.

We are grateful to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel in the beautiful city of Brussels. As you mentioned our delicious breakfast is one of the services we pride ourselves on the most. Furthermore we would like to express our gratitude for your kind comments.

We try and make the rooms, as well as all the public areas of the hotel, as comfortable for our guests as possible.

We are situated in a good location right outside the center of Brussels in a nice neighborhood. Despite being in the outskirts of Brussels, access to downtown is very easy with public transportation that is right outside our front door.

Our staff, as you have gathered, is very friendly and always willing to help if any question or concern should arise during your stay.

Thank you again for your comments, they are very helpful in the continuing management and growth of this hotel. We hope that you will honor us by staying at the Gresham Belson Hotel again upon your next visit to Brussels.



Kind regards,
Raf Willems,
General Manager

The hotel was ok, clean and cosy. What I hate about it was the bed, to small for 2 persons.
Breackfast very good, with a large variety of meats, cheese, even fresh pancakes.
The neyghbourhood is quiet, lot of houses around and a few restaurants around if you get hungrey.
We had free wifi in the room, but after 2 nights didn't work any more because apparently we overpass the download limit..

Clearly Gresham is not in the most exciting area of Brussels. But if you have a car or if it is the airport you are interested in, and at the same time you pay attention to the rates, but without accepting that low rate means low service, than the hotel represents a particularly good choice. The rate I paid the May 2013 Saturday when I was there, was 67 euros, includiong city tax and (rich) breakfast and the room was perfect, spacious, with flat screen TV and WiFi, big renovated bathroom etc. Also the staff helpful and efficient.

Dear Sir

On behalf of the Gresham Belson Hotel Staff I would like to express my utmost gratitude concerning your comment on Tripadvisor.

As you mentioned we are located on the outskirts of the Brussels city centre, but we are very accessible both by car and by public transportation. We also have running partnerships with several of the surrounding restaurants, ensuring that all our guests will always get a great dinner at their restaurant of choice.
It truly is our goal to offer you with the best possible service at the best possible rate. To see that you, as our guest have enjoyed this to its fullest, shows that we’re doing the right things to make your stay with us as perfect as possible.

We have recently renewed our television systems and internet connection so that you as a guest can fully enjoy these modern necessities. Besides these amenities we also pride ourselves with the service we as staff members bring to our guests and are therefore very honored to see that you were happy with the service that we provided.

Again, we would like to thank you for your wonderful comment, we certainly hope that you will honor us with your presence again upon your next visit to Brussels.

Kind regards,


Raf Willems
General Manager.

It gives us immense pride to learn that you had a satisfactory stay at The Gresham Belson Brussels. Your feedback helps us measure and improve the quality of the service that we provide to our guests.

We do pride ourselves upon the quality of the beds and how thorough our housekeeping department works. Our rooms and location are one of our strong points.

This hotel was ok, but we did a lot of 4 stars hotel in our trip and this one was not as nice. Our window gave on the roof, which cut the view and makes it less secure in my opinion (stealing etc. as people can enter if you leave it open).
The bathroom was awful, very old-fashioned (think 80s) and water would change temperature during the shower.
The room itself was an ok size, the tv was nice, furniture ok and bed comfortable enough.
Staff were all very nice, that was a big plus.
Location is ok, far from the city (30 minutes by bus) but still reasonable enough to take a taxi to come back at night. There is pharmacy, supermarket and restaurants around at least.
I recommend it, but only if you get a nice deal, not if you have to pay the full price. For that price, get a 3 stars in the city.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. All spoke English. Staff was able to help with technology problems. Free wi FI , and shuttle from the airport. Close to bus stop, grocery, bakery, and restaurants.
The rooms were comfortable. Remodeled bath rooms, but old doors. The bar area was cozy with a fire place, nice selection of beer and wine. Breakfast is available but not included. Bank next door with an A T M.
