BEST WESTERN PREMIER Carrefour De L'Europe

Srinath.imt stayed here on Dec 22, 2013 during their trip titled: Srinath & Neha's Great Europe Adventure.
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus...actually I think that might be Justin wheeling his bag of newly purchased Belgian beers - looking every bit like all his christmas' have come at once. Brussels promised to get us into the Chrissy spirit - and it delivered all things sparkly and tinsel related that we could hope for. I'd heard a lot …
We got a late start to the day leaving Brugge so we didn't have time for the intended stop in Ghent. Even once we got to Brussels we all needed a bit of a rest in the hotel before heading out for dinner. After dinner the girls got all the laundry done while the guys had a few beers :) We decided it was best to go to bed early so we could actually …
Well today we slept in til about 12:00 feeling not too bad. We then headed accross the square from the hotel and ate at place called Quick. It was pretty much a mcdonalds but we wanted something fast and easy so it worked out ok. We then walked over to Grand Place which is a big square surrounded by some really old bulidings that were amazingly …
Got up this morning feeling tired and a little hungover. Packed our bags headed downstairs for breakfast and checked out at 11:00am. Walked over to the train station and caught the 12:01 train to Brussels. I think we all slept for the hour long ride. Once in Brussels we walked to our hotel, checked in and immediately had a 3 hour nap. Feeling …

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PREMIER Carrefour De L'Europe Brussels
Amazing location, in a small square with numerous cafes and bars; a small interesting market and even street performers! Just walk across the square, down one small cobbled street and you are in the famous Grand Place. Other interesting attractions and shops also very near. Yet the hotel is very quiet.
Well located for the centre of Brussels
Stayed here weekend of 14th November 2004. Had a room at the back on the first floor which isnt the best of locations but we didnt intend to spend too much time in the room anyway. Rooms are large and nicely furnished with a nice big and comfortable bed. Bathroom was a good size too - our only problem was that the flow of water from the handbasin was a dribble. If we were staying for a longer period of time we'd have mentioned it but as it was only one night we left it be. We got a rate that included breakfast and it was a good selection of hot and cold dishes which set us up nicely for the day. If you're going to Brussels you really need to be in the centre and this hotel is perfectly situated - 3 minutes walk to the Grand Place.
Best Breakfast anywhere
Ideally located near lots of restaurants. If you arrive by train, just cross the street as though heading towards Le Meridien, and go to the right, down a flight of stairs through an empty paved lot--this is a short cut to the hotel, to its side entrance. Approachng the hotel this way saves you 3 or 4 blocks walking. Gracious staff. Lovely, well -heated rooms ( I visited in January). Quiet. Comfortable beds. Very clean. Lighting a bit dim. I would rate their breakfast the best I have ever eaten and I travel internationally 2 or 3 times a year for the past 15 years. You might get the same extensive selection elsewhere, say Berlin or Munich, but nowhere was the preparation and quality of ingredients equalled. I want to return just for those marvellous breakfasts!
Very nice hotel. Nice size room and bathroom. We were fortunate to have a balcony. Very close to the Grand Palace and the Central train station which connects to the Midi. Would highly recommend this hotel. Unfortunately there is not much to see in Brussels. One day is sufficient. We did take a train to Brugge and that was very nice.
Stayed at this hotel in October 2004 and was delighted with location, landed out of the Central Station and crossed the road to it. Brussels is a compact city and easy to get around on foot but even so this location was great . The hotel overlooks a market square and stalls set up here on Sat & Sun. Request a room overlooking this, I did and was delighted with the room which was like a mini suite complete with generous seated area, queen bed, sat tv. Hotel is immaculate and finished to avery high standard. Breakfast is not included in the price and at 21 euro I did not try it out, went out to different cafes etc, as these are numerous all around the hotel. The only disappointent was they state that there are tea/coffee making facilities in the room and there are not. When I asked about this I was bluntly told 'you must have been misinformed, we never provided this'. Looking later at Best Western book in the room it states, not once but twice, that all their hotels provide this as standard and as this is a Premier it should definitely provide it. I pointed this out to another staff member but go no satisfaction - so I gave up. The cups are tiny everywhere you go to eat out and as I am used to a good mug of coffee I would have really appreciated being able to make myself one. If you are more assertive than me press them on this issue. This aside I love it. The hotel will keep your baggage for you in a secure room free of charge if you have an evening flight which is also very useful.
Stayed here with 3 friends in November 2003. Had an absolutely fabulous time. It was our 4th time in Brussels and it was definitely the best hotel we've stayed in, and will stay there again. It was spotlessly clean, the room was a really good size, with a large bathroom, in-room safe, tv and tea/coffee making facilites. The breakfast buffet was really good.
Standing at the Crossroads
The location of this hotel could hardly be better - you overlook a small square just off La Grande Place. It is particularly romantic in winter to see the small market stalls there, all brightly lit, selling chestnuts and whatnot - especially if you've had a couple of Trappist beers. The rooms are fairly large and well equipped, and the standard of service good. Brussels is a small but perfectly formed city, and this hotel is a good place to explore it from.
Great hotel, great location
This hotel is in a great location close to Grand Place and the Central Station. Only problem will be if you are taking the Eurostar into Brussels, it will drop you off at Midi Station which is probably a 1/2 hr. walk from the hotel. You will also need to walk through a pretty grungy area of town. Otherwise the hotel was great, staff were friendly and lots of great restaurants in the area.
It was my first stay in Brussels and stayed at the Carrefour de l'Europe wich is a Best Western hotel.
alike all hotels in Brussels, they have week end rates. E 115 per night breakfest included. Friday night is not considered as the week end, but if you stay more than two nights you can try to bargain for a week end rate too.
It is a four star hotel and is located two minutes walk from the Grand Place and from the rue des Bouchers. The location is just great and not noizy at all.
It is also two minutes walk to the train station.
Be sure to request a room on the front to get a view on the Hotel the Ville wich is illuminated at night.
