So had a bit of a panic the couple of days leading up to this 'holiday'. Classic lack of professional planning on my behalf, added to the classic lack of technology on the Royal Air Force's behalf, meant that I ended up thinking I hadn't actually booked tickets to the Grand Prix. I eventually found the email so all was set? I should be so lucky. I …
We had a lovely breakfast on the 7th floor of the hotel; a good view of the old towne is all around- mainly roof tops though.. We made our way to City Hall then up the hills to Sint Michelcathedral which stands out very prominently. Interior stained glass looking very much 3D and large solid Oak Pulpit are very beautiful. After visiting Brussels …
We woke up to very rainy conditions this morning and according to the news it will be like this for a few days... However when we finally arrived in Brussels, it was partly cloudy and no rain at all! We are lucky as places north are getting it. We got to our hotel after fighting construction work all over Brussels also were the closures for …

On the way we noticed some gold shells made of some sort of metal and stuck firmly into the path. We had seen these yesterday too and we were puzzled. While looking around the church we decided to sake the lady on the information desk about th shells and all was revealed. Apparently there is a Great Pilgrimage that goes from one side of Europe to the other and while in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Floris Arlequin Grand'Place Brussels
Good location, average place to stay
The pictures on the web site are a bit deceiving: the rooms are fairly cramped and the beds aren't very comfortable. The receptionist wasn't very helpful when we asked for a non-smoking room (they don't have them, but our room smelled fine). The breakfast room has a nice view, but the food gets picked over and not much is left by the end of the service. Location is very central, around the corner from a street full of tourist restaurants and just a short stroll to the Grand Place.
Very nice hotel, great location
Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights. The location couldn't be any better, it's in a quiet alley just a stone throw's away from Hotel de la Ville (a central square). The railway station is close as well (about 10 minutes by foot). The rooms are clean and comfortable and the bathroom seemed to be quite recently renovated as well as the lobby. There is also a free internet access in the lobby. The breakfast was good too. At least our room was very peaceful, we had a room in the 6th floor with a view to Hotel de la Ville. Some of the staff weren't that nice and the service wasn't above average but I would definately recommend this hotel.
I stayed in Arlequin for 3 nights, from June 2nd to June 5th, and was dazzled by its beauty.
Good hotel, great location.
For the tourist this hotel is in an excellent position. It is close to the Grand Place, surronded by restaurants, and 5 minutes from Central Station although this is uphill from the hotel and over cobbled steets which is not ideal for luggage.
The room and bathroom were both of reasonable size and modern.I would rate breakfast as good/average; the breakfast room is superb.
The location is excellent - right by the Gross Markt and an easy 5-min walk from the Central Station. The size of the room is good and clean. However, I would have to disgree with the previous posts regarding breakfast. The coffee was weak and the scrambled egg was inedible. However, the breakfast room is on the 7th floor so you get a very good view of the city.
Great location, good breakfast
The Arlequin was well located a block from Le Grand Place, next to Rue de la Bourche, which is the famous restaurant street in Brussels. We booked a triple room (a rare commodity in Brussels) which was remarkably spacious compared to the other rooms we stayed in during our 3 week, 7 nation trip. The restaurant where they served breakfast had a great view of Brussels, and the food was among the best that we ate (only surpassed by a specialty B&B in Sweden). We got a great rate on the Internet and we would definitely look to come back here. (We loved Brussels in general--put it on your list.)
We stayed in the Arlequin in March 2005 and, having read previous reviews, requested a room on a high floor because of noise from the street and bar in the basement of the hotel.
Wonderful Inexpensive Hotel in the Heart of Brussels
We stayed at the Hotel Arlequin for two nights. I thought it was a nice clean hotel. We stayed on the top floor (7th) and had a great view. The room was a good size and the bathroom was nice. I also thought the rates were very reasonable. A very good breakfast buffet is included in the price. One word of warning though: If you plan to drive to the hotel and are not familiar with Brussels, have the hotels send you one of the maps that they have on the front desk with the directions drawn out. We had a really hard time finding it.
Very central hotel
A very clean central hotel a few seconds walk from the Grand Place, ask for a room on the higher floors as there is a bar that stays open late in the basement which can be noisy. Rooms are small but clean and all with ensuite bathrooms, great view from the breakfast room on the 7th floor.Would stay here again.
Right in the center
Very centrally located, right near Grand Place and central restaurant district. In-lobby Internet access; Internet supposedly in rooms, too, but they could never get it to work in my room. Breakfast room looks out over rooftops of Brussels -- quiet pleasant. Rooms are somewhat small and plain, and occasionally noisy. But you can't beat the location!
