Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Brussels Europa

Refurbed rooms are lovely

from

I was worried after booking this hotel through an online tour company, and then reading some of the previous reviews on this site. I had nothing to fear. We had a refurbished, Gustav Klimt themed room which I have to say was gorgeous. The bathroom was big and beautifully lit, and the bed was heavenly. I didn't even have to touch my boyfriend at night!! (only joking Ben).

The breakfast was good with a variety of nationalities catered for. The waiting staff at this time of day were slightly surly, but c'est la vie.

The location is good - we got there without problem via the metro from the Gare du Midi. We walked to the Grand Place and surrounding areas easily and pleasantly, and felt safe at night time. It was no different to any other city at night.

The area directly outside the hotel was a bit of a construction site, but it didn't feel depressing or shabby.

All in all a fantastic 2 day break and I'd highly recommend it. Just try to get a refurbished room!

Perfect

from

Very clean and friendly. The Hotel is about 20 minutes walk from Midi

Station, situated near a Metro stop.

I stayed with a friend in a twin bedded room on the top floor. The room was large with Satellite TV and free Tea and Coffee.

The bathroom was stocked with all the necessary items and even had bath robes.

The staff were very helpful.

The only disappointing aspect was the price of breakfast - 25 Euro's. We didn't bother as a cup of coffee kept us going until we hit town.

This hotel features in many on line deals which work out considerably

cheaper than booking the Hotel direct.

Horrible.....Don't Stay!

from

This hotel was byfar the worst I have ever stayed at. I booked it through priceline, and supposidly it was a 4 star, but in actuality, the manager of the hotel said it was 3. The location was soooooooooooooooo out of the way, walking to the city center took about 30-45 minutes. By car, the taxis choose long ways in order to get paid more. Previously, approximately 3 weeks ago I was in Brussels again and chose to stay at the marriott. That hotel was amazing. It was a block away from the Grand Place. Beautiful building, walking anywhere in the center was literally 5 minutes. Don't stay at this hotel. The room service menu is only a page long of more or less 5-6 items. Service is ok depending on the person, but overall I hated this hotel, the location, and the food in it.

Very Nice

from

I stayed at this hotel with my family. Everything was perfect, taxi from Station is 10 euros, the breakfast was very lovely. This was included in the room rate which was cheap for such a decent hotel. Always check on hotel website for deals.

Beyond Expectations

from

This hotel is beyond what we expected. Room was still spacious even with the extra bed for my 3-year-old daughter. A child-friendly hotel, kids are free. My daughter enjoyed being treated like a princess during our dinner on the first night. And after the dinner, while hanging out at the bar, the barman gave my daughter a coloring book and colored pens! Totally stunning! The staff is very accomodating and friendly. You can feel their sincere warmth!

Adjacent to the Brussels Metro

from

Reports of the remoteness of this hotel are exaggerated. To reach the centre of Brussels rapidly, turn left on exiting the Crowne Plaza hotel, walk down two flights of steps, turn right, walk thirty metres under the bridge and the Brussels Metro is on your right. You can travel to Gare Centrale in five minutes for less than two euro. Central Brussels and the Grande Place is literally another five minutes walk away from the Gare Centrale.

And yes, this is a hotel designed for Eurocrats. But even Eurocrats should be entitled to have their needs catered for. I stayed in the Crowne Plaza hotel so I could attend a meeting in the EU Commission early the following morning. It is exceptionally convenient for such meetings. And I would imagine that it will become even more popular once the newly renovated Berlaymont building gets back into action in the near future.

The bedrooms are very comfortable with large, inviting beds. The bathrooms are large by Brussels standards and well-equipped. Although the breakfasts are expensive (at Euro 24 a pop), there is a wide variety of food on offer and it is tastefully presented. The staff are efficient and courteous without being particularly warm. But, in many ways this is refreshing ; fake warmth of character is painful to behold in someone you do not know.

I slept like a log in the Crowne Plaza.Two reasons for this phenomenon. First of all, the beds are large and all embracing. Secondly, the Belgian beer is second to none in the world. And, having imbibed several litres of the amber liquid in some of the more ancient hostelries off the Grande Place, all was right in my particular world on Thursday night last. If there were noises emanating from either the adjacent railway or highway, I never heard as much a single decibel.

I stayed in the Crowne Plaza on the night of the 8th of September and the room rate was not particularly cheap (although a few of my colleagues benefited from upgrades to business suites !) So I suppose my advice to would be users of the hotel is to shop around for the best deal relating to the Crowne Plaza Europe on the www.tripadvisor.com website before making your booking. That way you can stay in a comfortable hotel at a competitive price.

Nice, but noisy in the middle of nowhere

from

This is a typical hotel for the Eurocrats and people doing business with them. An anonymous high rise bunker in the middle of an office district. The rooms are fairly large and comfortable. Unfortunately many rooms overlook a busy railway station. I had problems sleeping. The other rooms overlook a busy 4 lane road, so I guess there's no escape.

The frontdesk was nice and helpful. If you need a taxi in the morning be sure to ask them to reserve a cab for you the evening before.

If you are in Brussels as a tourist the hotel is a 30 minute walk or a a 10 minute taxi ride to the Grande Place. There is nothing of interest near the hotel. Everything is dead after office hours. All of the nearby restaurants are only open for lunch!

The breakfast buffet is quite nice, but at 25 Euros much too expensive.

Very Impressed

from

I was very impressed with the hotel. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful.

The menu in the restaurant was fairly limited, but the quality was very good.

Perfect European location

from

Enjoyed the service by the super friendly staff. They realy made my stay. Location is perfect if you want to be close to EU.

Nice enough hotel location not so good

from

We were rather worried after reading the previous reviews like another reviewer was. Firstly I would like to point out that the hotel is situated close to the gare du nor and not the midi where the eurostar arrives. You need to get a train from platforms 7 or 8 and travel 2 stops. A helpful local freely stopped and helped us as we were looking very lost!

The hotel is a fair distance from the grand palace but a cab ride cost just 8 euros. The surrounding area does look like a building site at the moment. The hotel is grand on entry and the staff helpful enough on reception. The bar/restaurant staff were superb and the food fantastic.

The cocktails made me feel like Delboy!

The room was of a standard plain business city type but had everything you need including iron,trouser press etc. Beware of the computerised mini bar. I took some things out to get some water in but did not get charged unlike other guests.

Breaksfast was quite good although the staff were typical of any morning waiters..they do not want to know!

Finally the bars/restaurants surrounding the hotel were poor and a bit seedy so go into the main square or eat in the hotel,although not that cheap but excell.

Stayed at hotel 29-31st August 2003

Ok, back to the people.

I met a lovely family from the states who were travelling around and had a day in London, and being the self-proclaimed Londoner that I am, I gave them a list of places to see, to eat (Lamb and Flag shoutout) and things to do. They were such a nice family, and the ...

... take place on the continent!

Ninety minutes on the tarmac and finally we have take-off. Arriving in Brussels at 8pm, it's pouring with rain, and we finally make it to the Mei***** hotel around 9pm (which by the way is very new age and a wicked layout). Kev and I haven't done a lot of research this trip, and didn't even know what language they speak... Quickly learn its Flemish, but a lot of French, Dutch and German too. Sucrebleau - the limited French I do know comes about ...

... a lot less crowded than the main room with the bar. Suddenly realising it was almost 1am we headed back to the hostel to go to bed. On Sunday we got up to be in breakfast by 9:15 and then joined the group checkout so that we could leave our bags in the bus for the day. We followed the group as far as the Grand Place before running away to avoid the group photo. As we were walking one of the organisers described it as the international sorting system – the English at the front ...

Rainy Brussels

... another beggar with her kid hassling me. The kid kept touching me and I'm fully aware they try train them as pickpockets, so I told her in no uncertain terms to not ******* touch me or she'd be kicked. She moved then.

So I was pretty glad to be out of that place but it then took me ages to drive out again. I did notice as I was heading out of the city that they are building loads of new houses and road etc, so glad to see my EU taxes are being spent ...
