Four Points by Sheraton Brussels
Travel Blogs from Brussels
So I was told to get on the wrong train by the ticket guy (it was leaving then and they had switched lines or something) and went an hour the other way to Antwerp. They have a really cool train station, and luckily they didn't charge me anymore to go to Brussels. Once I finally got to Brussels it took forever to get to my hotel. 2 metro lines, a …

Great to be able to practice ma Francais again eun petit peu! They speak a mixture of languages here, from Flemish (heavily accented 'Dutch'), French and what sounds more like the Dutch we're used to. (H)
... in Belgium. The good thing about Ghent (especially with kiddos) is that most things to see (government buildings and churches) are located within a few minutes walk of each other. I went to see the the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb in St. Bavo's Cathedral. This painting has been stolen and recovered several times throughout history. I believe it was mentioned in the book/movie Monuments Men. Off to the ...
... was pretty funny as we all tried to make ourselves understood with gestures and fractured languages.We'd arrived just in time for breakfast so after dropping the luggage in our room, we enjoyed a really excellent buffet. Then back to our room to get some sleep!
P.S. We discovered the hotel name on hotels.com was not correct plus the address given there is just a generic name given to many national park roads: Rue de Forestiere. Bet you can guess what THAT means.

I found a nice place to sit down by the water and pulling out my map I
advised a Japanese guy how best to get back to the train station. I felt so
awesome. I hadn’t really been able to do this until now because I’d always been
the one lost.
After realising that I was sitting on the bench shivering quite a while
later I decided to slowly make my way back to the station so ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFour Points by Sheraton Brussels
It was a nice place. The rooms were nice, clean, and it was decently priced. The location was good as well, maybe only a 25 min walk to get into the real center of town.

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Brussels
I just returned after 1 night stay in Brussels with my wife and brother- and sister-in-law. We booked 2 rooms from the internet for only Eur. 69,- / room for 2 adults. This is very cheap for staying in a 4 stars hotel in Europe.
My husband, three kids, and I enjoyed this hotel very much when we went to Belgium. The hotel staff, overall, were very helpful and kind to all of us. We had to book two rooms because the rooms in Europe are generally very small. The rooms were adjoining to one another. One room had a microwave and small refrigerator. We took advantage of this amenity and purchased groceries from a deli on the corner. The food in Europe is extremely expensive, so it helped that we can buy food for breakfast and lunch and eat it at the hotel room. We felt that the rooms were decent and accomodated us. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in Brussels. We would definately come back to this hotel on our next visit. It is close to Brussels square and there is public transporation to get around. People are generally nice in Belgium.
I stayed at FP with my husband in March 05. Thanks to Easter offer, it was the best hotel deal we had for long, long time. I had lived relatively close by a few years ago, and I knew that the location of the hotel is very good. It is very nice that it is not located at busy Avenue Louise (LOT of traffic noise...), but one block away of it.
Nice surprise at this hotel
We stayed at the 4 Points and were pleased with the 2 rooms we got.
They were clean, although not ready until much later after we arrived in the early AM. But once we got in our rooms, we found the beds to be comfortable. Bathrooms were large and accommodating for 2. But the best part of the hotel is the spa area at the top of the hotel. It looked like a full service facility that had just been opened to the public. Steam shower, LARGE wrirlpool, and since the hotel wasn't crowded, my brother and I had it all to ourselves.
Good place. You won't be disappointed
Classy part of Brussels
I stayed in this hotel after alot of consideration, and what swayed me was the reviews on this site!! Well I was absolutely delighted with the hotel and the location it was in! It was a short, say 15 minute, walk from the city centre, but it was in an excellent location (I would say the more classy part of Brussels). And over the road was a delightful Irish pub, which was good fun. The hotel itself was clean, modern and excellent value for money. There was also a sauna room, with a jacuzzi etc, which was also a bonus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definately visit it again!
Selected the hotel from the reviews on this site and glad to say made a very good choice. Hotel is as described by others, smart, modern, clean with large rooms and beds. It is ideally placed just outside the main area with some nice restaurants within easy walking distance and a nice drop of Guinness at the irish bar across the street. Everybody we met was friendly and helpful. Very handy location for the trams in all directions
As for Brussels itself I was a bit disappointed as very little of interest to see and more shabby than I expected.
I had read all the reviews of this hotel, and I was expecting a great hotel, and boy, that was exactly what I got.
After trekking around Europe, feeling tired and messy - this hotel was definitely one of the best in Europe to come 'home' to. Put your feet up and relax after sightseeing. Service was outstanding. the rooms are huge! Very clean (which is my # 1 consideration). The lovely dooners and pillows will whisk anyone away into a dreamy sleep. Very quiet street and the room I had had a lovely outlook onto an enclosed garden. Close to all boutique shops and a quick hop over to the newer side of town for a huge variety of restaurants if you can't find one closer. Have to admit, the restaurants closer seemed to be geared towards 'tourist' style including the price. But there are plenty of other delish places nearby. Enjoy!
Nice hotel with little sauna
Was here last fall and I really liked the hotel. We booked it by an internet travel agency and they have cheap weekend rates, the breakfast was included, and there was also a small sauna on the top floor. The neighbourhood was good, close to the nice Louizalaan. There is a tramstop close by if you don't like to walk to the center. Car park under the hotel. And the staff was very friendly. I probably go back to this hotel for my next visit to Brussels
Best kept secret
My company booked me into this lovely hotel. Hidden in a sidestreet of Avenue Louise it's a very quiet place with very friendly staff. I specially enjoyed the small garden behind the hotel.
