Le Meridien Brussels
Travel Blogs from Brussels
We drove to Brussels from Albert and Brian dropped me off at the hotel. He and Anna then returned the rental car an hour away in Germany (cheaper to pick up and drop off in same country) and then took the high speed train back to Brussels.
Last night was spent just walking around the Grand Place, which is one of the most stunning squares …
As you could tell from our last post, we were keen to leave down town Paris. To do so we needed to pick up our leased vehicle from Orly airport. This was not an easy task and the taxi driver got tremendously lost looking for the pick up location. We went around and around on spaghetti highways like a scene from a Mr Bean …
After having an amazing Christmas Day, we decided to take this morning a bit slower. While Heidi, Scott, and Marsha were raring to go and left early to go exploring, we stayed in our room, slept in, blogged, and had coffee and pastries to start our day. The highlight of the morning was pulling back the curtains to find huge snowflakes falling …
Merry Christmas! We stayed in our pjs (well...we were all supposed to stay in our pjs, but only Casey and Dan were brave enough to actually do so!) and headed down to the grand hotel lobby to meet Marsha, Heidi, and Scott for a Christmas stocking exchange in front of the hotel's Christmas tree. The gifts were all things that we gathered in the …
It's snowing on Christmas Eve! All the snow that had started to melt was back in full force! We had a slow start to the morning today as we had a 12:43 train from Koln Central station to Brussels. We joined our travel partners once again in the hotel’s restaurant for a Christmas Eve breakfast before heading back to our room to finish packing …

Simply the best shower I have had occasion to use - in any country! Wonderfully clean room. A little disappointed that there was a charge for WIFI, but c'est la vie - it is. Large hotel chain in a large European city. What else?

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Brussels
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.
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.
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
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.
Stayed here for 2 nights Jan 2003. Booked online pais approx 400 euro.
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.
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
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
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!
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.
