Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PREMIER Carrefour De L'Europe Brussels
Excellent Location / Lovely Hotel
Stayed there Valentine's weekend.
Good : The hotel has an excellent location. The view from the hotel was a great little square that was literally 30 seconds walk to Grand Place. 2 mins walk from the Central Station, so ideal. As we went there at a weekend we got a brilliant rate. The room was large, well decorated and faced onto the square - would not have been so happy if i hadnt been at the front of hotel. The hotel added to a great weekend in a great city. The breakfast was fantastic, helped that it was included in the rate. amazing choice and the service was also very good.
Bad : only 1 very minor issue the young man at reception wasnt my idea of welcoming or helpful, hardly raised a smile. However this was balanced by a female (long curly hair) who was the exact opposite, very helpful indeed.
I will defintely stay at this hotel again and would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone
Loved this hotel, amazing location
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.
We thought the rooms and bathroom were a good size, very tastefully decorated, fresh and clean. Trendy toiletries. The staff were friendly and spoke great English. We thought the breakfast room was just a little bit cramped but good décor, there are lovely large windows for people watching! We enjoyed a very leisurely breakfast, lots of choice and very relaxed atmosphere. We would have liked tea making facilities in the room.
Some reports have said there is nothing much in Brussels, NOT TRUE, do some research before you go!
We were a party of 6 aged 24 to 84 and stayed for a fantastic weekend in January 2005.
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.
Superb hotel and location
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.
Top Class Hotel in a Top Class Area
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.
The hotel itself overlooked a beautiful square where they opened market stalls on Saturday morning. There were lovely cobbled streets with beautiful little cafes and restaurants leading off the square. It was a stones throw away from Grand Place and Boulevard Anspaachan where the Bourse is and there's always a lot of activity around there. It's also very close to Rue Neuve which is a street full of shops of every description. Bring lots of money because you can get really carried away on that street!! Clothes shops, bag shops, shoe shops like you've never seen, accessory shops. It was amazing.
And then you don't have far to walk back to the hotel with all your bags.
I'd definitely recommend Hotel Carrefour de L'Europe for your stay. Its a top-class hotel in a top class area.
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.

... office and re-book reservations on the train to Brussels, and of course we just missed one and the next was 1 1/2 hours later. So we found a nice restaurant in the station and had a late lunch. Hustled up to the platform for our 7:45 train only to discover it was running 1 hour late. So we hung out on the platform in 85 degree weather (at least we had shade!).
They finally posted the arrival ...
... Place’. As its name suggests, this square is an impressive area surrounded by the Town Hall and guildhalls, both preserved when much of the rest of old Brussels was redeveloped in the 19th century. I popped in to the information (after getting directions, in Japanese, from a Japanese couple) and tried to work out where I was going to stay and what I was going to do in Brussels. I left my bag in the train station storage lockers and began my roam around town, starting with ...
... a couple of attractions. Today was overcast and we had a few drops of rain, the first so far.
Brussels is a lot different than Brugge - a much larger city, more multi-cultural, some historical areas, some parks and attractions (museum of Fine Arts), and some newer areas (European Union Parliament buildings) . We are only in Brussels for 2 days so tomorrow will be our only full day here.
... town and the host took us to a local basement bar. We walked around looking at the lovely attractions Bruge had to offer, visited the Chocolate Museum, watched how they make chocolate and even scored a free taste! Found a cool pub that served all different fruit beers, chocolate, berry, apple, so many to choose! The cherry flavor was the best! There are so many different chocolate shops too! We also had to try the Belgium 'frites' which ...
... despite being Sunday) so we had a great time to remember Brussels by! We loved Brussels, it was laid back and full if beet and chocolate! Really cute city with some very cute architecture! What we'll miss most though I think is delirium! We had such a great time there being able to try so many new beers! We were a bit sad that we hadn't found this place the night before so we could have ticked a few more beers off their vast list. Next morning we slept in, packed up and were off to ...
