Great centralized option

4 stars.
Conveniently located across from Gare Central. 2-3 minute walk to Grand Place/Mannekin Pis and a touristy area with restaurants, markets, chocolate shops, beer stores, galleries, etc. Room was very large, even for American standards. Room faced SW, could see top of Hotel de Ville. Business center with internet, concierge (did not use), Front desk was helpful, gave a detailed map and some helpful suggestions. Requested an early checkin and room was ready (at noon). Bathroom was a little odd with no wall between shower and rest of bathroom. Chose to forgo housekeeping. Amenities were a touch overpriced for our taste but reasonable for this hotel. Outside was a bit shady due to proximity to the train station.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Brussels Grand Place

Beyond excellent

from

My wife and I stayed at Le Meridien Brussels for a weekend, we had a wonderful time the accomodation was superb, we have stayed in several other hotels in Brussels but Le Meridien is by far the best.

Recommended...

from

My wife and I recently spent three nights there and had virtually no complaints. The location is excellent and the entire experience from checkin to the housekeeping to checkout was professional, courteous and efficient. The room was large, huge by European standards, and very comfortable. It was also very quiet despite facing a major street.

The only issues we experienced were some work being done in an adjacent room one morning while we were still sleeping (thankfully only one morning and for a short time) and hot water that was difficult to modulate. (The shower was extremely difficult to set and keep at the right temp). We did not eat at either of the steeply priced restaurants; the word "gouging" comes to mind.

Overall, we had no regrets about staying there and we would hope to stay at the Le Meridien again if in Brussels.

The Best

from

A truly great hotel. Right accross from the train station. (refuse to rent cars in Europe now because of the fuel prices, high taxes, hotel garage charges). Rooms were finely apponted. Hotel restaurant supurb.

Great concierges, sub-par health club

from

The hotel has all the amenities you would expect from Meridien. The concierges were of enormous help to me as I was a single business traveller. The health club needs more room, however - it is cramped (although at least the machines are operational) and uninspiring. My room faced the train station and it was very quiet.

Booked on the web - got smallest room in the hotel? Coincidence ?

from

Stayed here for 2 nights Jan 2003. Booked online pais approx 400 euro.

We arrived at 10pm and got the smallest room in the hotel. On the back of the door was the fire exit chart and it was clearly visible that our room was a third of the size of the room next door. We had emailed prior to our stay requesting a king size bed, needless to say we did not get one. It would be physically impossible to fit in the room.

We were told that the hotel was full. We saw a total of 3 people in the evening in the bar on the first night.

I complained on the night we checked in, I complained when we checked out, no manager was available. The only staff that were courteous were the car valet.

On checkout, I completed the questionnaire giving my contact details.

No reply. I wrote again and 3 months later the GM wrote to me and was sorry that the room I had booked on the web paid no resemblance to the room I received. He advised me that the next time I book with them they would upgrade me. As If !!

Fabulous location

from

Fortunately, I read a comment from another web site and switched my reservations from Hyatt Barsey to Le Meridien. The location cannot be beat and the rate over Christmas was cheaper than the Hyatt for a truly 5 star hotel. Elevator access is only by room key and room doors have peep holes. I left a book open bedside and chambermaid left a Meridien bookmark. No noise with window closed and triple drapes for blackout effect. Turndown service with mint, list of activities and tomorrow's weather. Room itself was of good size and comfortable with a fabulous bath plus free upgrade as Moments member. Gare Central is across the street which makes for great transport options including less than 5E first class for a 20 minute airport shuttle. This hotel is my first choice in Brussels.

Great Hotel

from

A great hotel. Excellent location and really nice rooms. Directly opposite the train station and a short walk to the main old centre.

Breakfast included in rate, however, have had better. Worth it for location and rooms.

Nice and luxury hotel but expensive

from

Very good location, very friendly staff and nice large rooms and superb bathroom. Although quite expensive, even in the weekend (no breakfast included!)

Excellent location and good weekend rates

from

The perfect location for Brussels (across from the Central train station. Take the train from the airport -- much cheaper and more reliable than a taxi.) Rooms are top notch and the weekend specials can be a steal!

Le Apartement - Superb!

from

Spent a glorious New Year's Eve in le apartement - a divine luxury suite on the top floor. Location of suite facilitated viewing both of the fireworks displays in Brussels simultaneously while enjoying the comfort and warmth of the hotel. ...... This was not my first encounter with Le Meridien Brussels and hopefully it will not be my last.

Day 7: Brussels beer tour

A travel blog entry by m.s.peabody on Jun 08, 2012

Early morning breakfast of a couple of pastries (different shop) and we were off to the Thalys train station for the ride to Brussels. Train ride was uneventful.

In Brussels, after a transfer to the local train (free) we arrived at a central station, across the square was our hotel, Le Meridien.

After checkin we walked around …

... be there and see it all was just so amazing. We were taken to Hill 60, which had basically been untouched since the war. We just had to imagine no grass, greenery or trees, but instead mud and nothingness for kilometers. We saw the Menin gate in the town of Ypers, which houses the names of over 35 000 men who died in battle whose bodies were not recovered. We saw a presevered trench which was amazing. The Tyne Cot Cemetery which is the largest War cemetery ...

... bridges, the oranges and yellows of leaves upon overhanging tree branches covered in a thin blanket of snow. At the outskirts of the town, an ice sculpture festival was afoot, with thirty artists from thirty different countries contributing their fantastic creations of people, buildings and places crafted from huge chunks of ice. Amongst the sculptures on display, I took refuge in an igloo, shuffled down an ice slide and just generally admired the works from the ice-throne ...

... explained the whole menu to us and Ben got REALLY excited. If you don't get seafood, Belgian food is essentially made up of meat cooked in beer with potatoes. I have no idea how everyone in this country stays thin. Ben had stoemp (Belgian sausages on mashed potato with beer gravy) and I had rabbit with cherry beer glaze and a side of potatoes and vegetables. We're trying so many new things!

It was fun to catch up over dinner, but sadly it was a Wednesday night and Michael ...
