... Chouffe. It was genuinely one of the best beers I have tasted, a lot of the best things about Punk IPA, but less of a session beer and slightly more full flavoured, as you would expect for a beer of that strength. I asked the barman what else he had that was similar and he put me on to a Troubadour Magma (another 9%er). That was great too, slightly darker in colour and another step up in turns of fullness of flavour. Another recommendation put me on ...

Anyway, our friends from dinner the night before and all of the tourism information lead us to the Atomium, a 120m high iron atom model. The whole thing is made of steel and aluminium and at 120m I am sure you can imagine it is enormous, I wasn't keen to go up but we paid and I caught the escalators and stairs through the 5 or 6 parts which serve as the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Leopold Brussels Ixelles
Great family break at the leopold
Just had a great pre-christmas stay at the Leopold Hotel. Travelled by Eurostar from Ashford. Booked a'Family/Executive room' for my wife and kids (5mths and 4yrs). The room was modern, clean and spacious. The Breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff very helpful. Although in the business district of the city the Hotel is conveniently located about 200m from the metro and very easy to find, ideal for exploring the city. We would definitely use this hotel again especially for a weekend break with the kids.
Just got back from a long weekend trip to Brussels. Originally we wanted to stay in one of the tourist hotels close to the Grand Place, but they were all full, so we opted for the Leopold, which is further out but which, fortuitously, turned out to be the better choice.
Well worth a visit
Stayed here for 2 night short break. hotel staff were friendly and helpful. room a bit compact but adequate and comfortable. Worth the visit
Horrible staff and service
While this hotel's location is ok and the rooms are fine, the staff are rude and difficult in the extreme. My room was supposed to have Internet access. When I questioned them, they treated me as if I were stupid for not being able to find it. It took 4 days for them to actually go to the room and look and discover that the room did not have Internet access, after which they moved me to another room. They broke the handle on my luggage on the way out and have taken no responsibility and offered no compensation.
There are hotels in Brussels that are nicer and cheaper. I would steer clear of this one.
It is highly justified for this hotel to be classed as a 4*.I have never stayed in any hotel as clean before,it was absolutely spotless! & in a very quiet location-situlated nearest to the EU buildings.The buses stop near enough right outside the hotel.The Metro (Trone), is about five minutes walk away-indeed a very pleasant walk,as on each side of the road are two small parks.It is also very near to the royal palace.Back to the hotel however!,the hotel receptionists are very welcoming & knowledgable.I travelled as a "single traveller" & am sometimes used to the rooms being quite cramped-however the room was more than adequate,my room was cleaned every day & was totally spotless,the room as well had air conditioning.
Simply loved it
This hotel was simply great. Reached there at midnight, wet and hungry. Staff even offered to cook me a meal even when everywhere was closed. The location was great, right in the centre of everything. Will definately recommand that place and i'm looking forward to returning there.
Very helpful staff
The only draw back i can say about the Leopold is that, although it is 15 mins, walk from the centre ville, that 15 min coming back is uphill!Hotel is well situated, with very friendly and helpful staff, (they provide maps, if you ask no need for tourist map, this on is quite adequate)The breakfast was continental and some english for those anglovilles who cannot go without an english breakfast Brussels is spectacular at night, and with Christmas coming it will be more so.
...The Leopold in Brussels is, in my view the best hotel in Brussels. Why? Simply because the staff are excellent and the food superb. It's worth paying that little bit extra for a room upgrade - the extra space is always worth it. Compared to nearly every hotel the decor is in great condition and is modern. Beds are very comfortable, bathrooms spotless and the bar great for an evenings drinking. It's very quiet at weekends round the hotel but there is a great baker Tout Bon on the corner nearby for Sunday afternoon tea and cakes. The Irish bar in the square opposite is also pretty lively at the weekend. The sites are short 20 min walk but there is a very good bus service - just ask at reception they are very helpful and speak fluent English. Finally make sure you eat in The Salon des Anges restaurant - the food is some of the best in Brussels and at a good price. Finally book with a UK Tour Operator for the best deals - much cheaper than doing it yourself!
A lunchtime arrival at the hotel meant we could not check in - however, we were able to leave our cases and explore Brussels unencumbered.
