... what's your problem" That made the group laugh at their paranoia. The next thing we heard was someone running toward our group. One of the shirtless men ran straight between Stacey and I, almost knocking us over. Shirtless started pushing and yelling at the American that had made the comment earlier. We were all very confused as to why this guy was going so phsyco as we weren't trying to offend him. It took some minutes to convince shirtless that we ...
When we arrived in Brussels we were amazed by the huge but almost empty train station (so it seemed)! I figured we'd have to walk a little to find our hotel and we set out on the cobblestones however just around the corner was our Ibis!! On the map it looked a lot further but it turned out to be a fantastic location and somewhere I would absolutely stay again. We were given a room on the 2nd to top floor and it had a fantastic view of the Grand ...
... by sell many versions of him! Early dinner and wine at a small restaurant and a walk back. We are both very tired so are planning a chilled out evening and an early night. Our friends Amy and Emily have made envelopes for us for each place that we visit. Each envelope has a number of tasks inside which are all equal to points!

... a hot chocolate each and three chocolates. This was no ordinary hot chocolate. They took hot milk and a stick of Godiva chocolate and melted it into the hot milk. Jer and I can’t even describe how incredible these hot chocolates were. On a cold and rainy day, they were the perfect treats.
Our wanderings also took us to this junk store. It was packed from floor to ceiling and from front to back with anything that you could imagine. There was even ...
... close to the old part of the city and we enjoyed wandering around the cobbled streets (no cars) with their beautiful old buildings. [The downside to being so close to the centre was the noise from the late-night revellers on Friday and Saturday!] We walked a lot for the first few days – mainly because the city was so compact and there was so much to see. Apart from its Cathedral, there are ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Warwick Barsey Hotel Brussels
Good location for neighborhood feel
The location of the Warwick is great for a quieter neighborhood feel. We ate at restaurants with the locals and got a better feel of the people. The tram to the center of town was no longer than a 15-20 minute wait right across the street. The ATM was across the street also and came in handy on several occasions. The room was large and the bed comfortable although the bathroom floor was worn and cracked. For the price, I can't complain. I would say this was a 4 star hotel.
Great hotel, Good Location
The hotel is a short (10 Euro) taxi ride from Brussels Midi and well located on the Avenue Louise, if a short walk from from the shops. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, if too few at breakfast.
The breakfast buffet is superb, with a great selection of fruits, cold meats and fruit juices.
There is no gym on site, but they have an arrangement with one around the corner (which opens at ten and midday on Saturdays).
Overall, a great hotel, at which I would definitely stay again.
I stayed in this hotel during easter, hotel is far from the center, the restaurant is nice, but seems expensive for Brussels, we decided to eat on the Sablon Square in a place called 'Lola', great food, excellent staff. The hotel staff is having trouble speaking English, and has been choosen for their 'Looks' I guess, cause not really 5* attitude, the hotels' interieur looks like my grandma's livingroom, candles included! Next time I prefer to stay more central and in a more 'updated' hotel.
I booked the hotel based on the good reviews and the good weekend rate I found on the internet.
Oh my God - Is it really a hotel ?
I stay in this wonderful hotel designed by the famous Jacques Garcia.
First of all I was welcomed by the General Manager; Mr. Bussan: this person must be smiling all the time and what a personalized welcome.
In the evening, I went to their Restaurant; Barsey: what a delicious meal and what a perfect service! When I heard that the Chef was Mr. Bruneau (previously at the Restaurant ; la Maison du Cygne, I understood ...).
I recommend this hotel to everybody who is looking for something different and not standardized hotel with a perfect level of service.
Wonderful 5-star hotel !
I've stayed at the Warwick Barsey in March 2006 and I found the hotel fantastic!
The rooms are very comfortable and the marble bathroom marvellous. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. This hotel is located on the prestigious Avenue Louise and it is easy to get there with the tram in front of the hotel.
It was a perfect stay in Brussels.
I recommend to everybody to try this hotel once in their life !!!
WOW what a great experience
What a little gem, having chosen this Hotel for my friends to stay at whilst visiting Brussels the entire experience was one not to forget, thank you very much.
My husband and I stayed two nights at the Warwick Barsey hotel in Brussels and enjoyed our stay. My husband was on business so I was on my own most of the time.
Hotel seriously needs to invest in ventillation
Very reasonable weekend rates, but hotel smells of smoke as soon as you walk in the door, and the air in the room had a s stale smell (despite being a non-smoking room) as though it hadn't been aired in months, if ever. I found the staff behind the front desk to be rather dim and ill informed - unable to answer basic questions about where things are and how to get to them easily, and - in one case - giving me entirely the wrong information. I also asked for an alarm call only to be wakened 45 minutes after the time I'd asked for - which was infuriating. Delightful farmers market by Ixelles lakes on weekend mornings, not that the hotel staff seemed to know anything about it, which was staggering.
The warwick barsey...
Staying several times a year in Brussels, I finally found the perfect hotel, more 'feel home' is hard to find, a hotel with 'Attitude', great decorations, well maintened, staff very polite and friendly. Located on the very stylish avenue louise, in the residential area only 5 minutes per taxi or tram from downtown brussels and the Fashion District. It's now rebrandred to Warwick Hotels, a rather small chain. This is for me the only real boutique hotel in Brussels and the only 5*hotel in town with a fancy trendy restaurant. Great for people with style and good attitude!
