I am sitting in the hotel room of the Atlas in Brussels as I write. I just woke up from a nap and don't have the heart to awaken Morry. We had an uneventful flight over ( the best kind) which started with Morry receiving a phone call from our wicked neighbor Judith, which threatened to derail our good cheer as we set off. She is truly a witch and …
Maya arrived and we were able to celebrate her birthday together. The weather started out nicely, but turned into a cold rainy afternoon, with periodic downpours. Maya's flight was three hours delayed, which allowed us time to sleep in and recover from jet lag, but ,meant that she was really exhausted upon her arrival around 10:30. We had mastered …
Okay, so I didn't really care for Brussels, obviously. It was dirty, people were rude, men were perverse, and there wasn't much to do there. You could see everything there in an afternoon, and still be left wanting something to do. All the specialties of Belgium, chocolate, waffles, fries, beer, can be found every where else in Belgium, and don't …
... this guy Sam (also from Boston and in our room) showed us!! We decided to get spaghetti!! So good!! Of course right before our food came we had to go get the laundry and take it back to the hostel and run back to dinner. Christine and i apparently the laundry *****es ;) go and pull our clothes out of the dryer....hottest dryer EVER!! Our clothes were too hot to touch!! I've never experienced my clothes being this damn hot ...
One last stroll around Bruges, as well as a few additional photos before we departed at 11 am. VBT had made arrangements to have a minivan transport the eight of us who were part of the post package to Brussels. At 12:30 pm we were in front of our hotel, the Sandton Brussels Center, and a few minutes after that we were in our rooms. Brussels, is a city with a population of 1.1 million inhabitants. Since the end of the Second World War, Brussels ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlas Hotel Brussels
Great stay for the money in a beautiful city
not a bad hotel but certainly not one of the best ive ever stayed at. good location and perfect for the budget traveler who could care less about a fancy hotel.
Atlas ideal location
The hotel is a close walk to the one of the most beautiful piazzas in the world, the Grand Place and close to metro and bus stops. Uur room was immaculate and of good size and the morning breakfast very generous. The Concierge services were outstanding.
Great locatoin, great price, helpful staff, and all at moderate cost. The Marriot Hotel at three times the rate was a half a block away! We could not have asked for more!
Once was enough
Hotel Atlas in Brussels has a good location in the centre of the city. Not an especially nice or beautiful area, but not too noisy either. And well, Brussels is not a beautiful or charming city.
At all times it's better to take good care of one's belongings in this area, the centre is not safe. I have two colleagues, who have been robbed of every penny they had, in the nearby Rue Dansaert.
The Atlas hotel needs a redecoration, the sooner the better. The room s are small and not too modern.
The breakfast room in the basement is quite dark and has a simple and somewhat unconfortable furniture, what is available in the buffet, is quite simple stuff.
Once was enough.
A great base to explore the city
Took the family for a long weekend in Brussels. Booked our rooms online, the price was good and the procedure pretty painless. The taxi from Gare du Midi careers around some grubby streets but when you arrive at the Atlas the location is excellent. It's in a quiet, attractive street only a few minutes walk from the Grand Place and with some great restaurants just around the corner and some interesting-looking bars nearby . And there's a fantastic organic food shop a block away if you prefer herbal tea to the grey stuff Belgians call "tea". Breakfast was fine, staff friendly and the rooms comfortable and very clean.
Nice location to the centre of town. We stayed as a small group last weekend. The staff at the breakfast room were rude but the food was ok. We also found that the public areas were not ventilated and as a consequence the place was quite stuff. I also had £100 stolen by the cleaning staff from inside my suitcase in my room. Not to be trusted! Will certainly not be going back there.
We just returned from a week in Brussels. We stayed at the Atlas and found the location amazing. They are less then a block from the ST. Catherine metro stop a 2 blocks from the Bourse stop. This is our first time in Europe and we metro it all. We walked to the grand palace, ate and bought souvenirs there. We also took the metro to Station midi and bought tickets for Paris via the Thalis, a bit expensive, cost us 68 each way for 2 people. The good news is we took the 9 am and got to Paris n 1:25 minutes, very nice. We retuned the same day at 11pm and made for a very special day trip. Did the same thing for Amsterdam, but this was cheaper $132 for 2 round trip tickets that can be used anytime in 3 months and you don't have a literary like the thalis.
A positive review of the Atlas
I seldom write these reviews but I feel that I should respond in this case because it was not my experience of the hotel. The problems faced by the reviewer do happen and I am certainly not discrediting the review. However, I found the staff to be courteous and willing to help and the hotel a small family-run affair that, for me, was a welcome change to the 4/5 star chains. I hope to return soon and will book again at the Atlas.
after reading the comments on atlas i was bit worried of my selection to stay at atlas.but there was nothing to blamed at. i came out from the hotel with a very positive frame of mind about atlas.thanks to excellent service they rendered we didnt have any problem at all .we were given the room by8.00a.m though the normal check-in time was 12.00.the ladies who served at the reception were very helpful and courteous.they really deserve this admiration.they assisted us in planing the days proceedings ,giving valuble advices ,information and meterials such as maps etc.i think one cannot accept a better service than this from class of 3-star.
We stayed at the Atlas Hotel in Brussels for two nights in December 2003. We booked the "Must of Brussels Package" which consisted of two nights accomodation for two persons in a double room, breakfast, a "bottle of wine", booklet with vouchers for "free admission" to various attractions in Brussels. The cost was 174 Euros or 87 Euros per night.
