    This hotel was ideally located a short walk from the Brussels Central station and the Grand Place. he rooms were large and comfortable although there was no minibar. The staff were friendly and helpful and as we got a cheaper weekend rate it would be a highly recommended hotel for a weekend visit to Brussels.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aris Brussels

    Centrally located - business hotel


    Once again chose a hotel on the basis of reviews on Tripadvisor. Very centrally located hotel - from upper floor room could see tops of buildings of grand place, a minute to grand place, very accesible to main Brussels sights and to tube / tram station to link with eurostar. Managed to get a good rate on a room for one night via last minute website, at least it was good value when compared with advertised room rate in hotel when we got there. Clean, nice bathroom, TV with BBC coverage, quiet hotel, seemed to be mainly business people (we were tourists) plain but nicely decorated, room was a tad chilly and seemed to only have a fan type heater (bathroom toasty though had a proper radiator) - although did not ask at reception about this. Good varied breakfast, although breakfast room felt a bit odd as was part of reception area. Only compliant would be that we had a room overlooking main street and whilst this was relatively quiet late at night was very noisy early morning when rubbish seemed to be being collected! Only there for one night so not sure whether this was a daily thing or not .... but didn't appreciate the noise and early wake-up call with bottles being loaded into trucks and so on!

    Quality and Value


    Centrally located, modern style hotel. Courteous staff, good breakfast included in price.

    We consider this to be a bargain.

    Very nice centrally located


    You cannot get wrong with this hotel. We paid 75euros per night. Steps from Central station. One block from Grand Markt. Very clean, nice sized rooms with full bath.

    Perfect Location, Good Hotel


    Nice, clean, friendly, efficient hotel in very convenient location. Two blocks from central railway station and one block from Grande Place. Safe in room but no way to make drinks but then go have a beer outside. Situated near lively square but minimal noise when windows closed. Let down only by weak air conditioning.

    Comfortable & incredible location


    while the flower carpet I stayed in that hotel, and I advise going there if you don't wanna pay as much as in other nearby hotels.

    It was really cheap cause of internet deals in hotel's web page, and though it's not luxuriuos at all, i can't complain at all. the situation is exellent, and you must ask for rooms finished with 5, the ones in the corner of the hotel.

    Great surprise, great location


    After reading reviews from this site and finding a good summer special price, we originally booked at the sister hotel, The Astrid. However, due to overbooking we were moved and arrived at midnight to the Aris Centre Hotel. The room was small, but the bathroom was reasonably large, very adequate and modern. We were very pleased with the variety offered at the Breakfast buffet. To our suprise we walked out the door and in a short one block walk we were in the Grand Place, the center of the tourist area; a place as busy as Times Square. This hotel was so convenient to everything we wanted to see. The staff were friendly and helpful, we would definately stay here again.

    The PERFECT and ONLY place to stay!


    Walk out of the Bruxelles Centralle train station, across the street through Le Meridian, and down the hill toward the Grand Place. BOOM! - the hotel is on your right. Yes, you are ONE block from the Grand Plaza and approximately TWO blocks from the train station.We are two adults that stayed here on 04 and 05 April 2003. The hotel is clean, the rooms are great, and a wonderful daily FULL breakfast is included in the room rate. Our room overlooked the main street and was, on occasion, somewhat noisy although it was never annoying to two, tired, old people like us. If a little celebration noise is a concern, request a room away from the front views. Everyone on the staff is very courteous. I cannot say enough about this property. Look nowhere else - this is where you want to stay!

    This morning we met my father-in-law and his wife at the bus stop, headed to King's Cross, and boarded the Eurostar to Brussels, Belgium! New country!!! We usually bring wine on the Eurostar, but since we were on the 9am train, we wisely brought orange juice. And Prosecco. Because mimosas are acceptable at 9am.

    We arrived in Brussels at …

    ... trip to the city by a day...

    I couldn't get an apartment in Brussels, so we were at another hotel. For this stay we used airline points and booked the Crown Plaza hotel, a "luxury" hotel that seemed to cater to British people mostly and was located just a 5 - 10 minute walk from Gare du Nord station where we arrived.

    Wanting to make the most of the remainder of the day we decided ...

    ... the same with people special to me, even more. I guess in that respect I did find myself a bit. Thanks solo travel! So my first morning in Brussels was spent mostly in my hotel room a little bit homesick. I used some of that time trying to cure it by connecting with family and friends back home, and Mum and Dad, which helped a lot. I also decided that if I was to avoid this fate for my whole few days in Belgium that I should book myself on a couple of tours over the next couple of ...

    ... each day to observe them. What a fascinating skill. The matriarch of the group is an 84-year-old woman who has been making lace since she was a little girl. She spoke not a word of English, but her hands and fingers flew at lightning speed as she made very intricate lace. The other ladies were slower (but that is all relative), and their lace was still beautiful. Their hands, fingers, ...
