Historical Traveler Reviews Martin'S Brussels EU
I found a great deal on this hotel at Hotels. I am a student studying in Italy this spring, and safety and costs are both big issues for me. This hotel was SO SO SO nice. It's comprable to a Marriott in the States. Eurovillage is right beside the European Union, and the metro stop to the Grand Place and Palais Royal is about 300 meters away from the hotel. Extremely safe and clean area. Great hotel!
Enjoyed the stay
Stayed here for two nights with my husband and 5yr old daughter . The rooms were spacious and very clean . There is coffee/cappucino/hot chocolate machine on each floor that was free . Lobby is quite nice and has enough coaches and sofas to sit and chill a bit . Breakfast had an above average spread and the food was very nice . Free parking in front of the hotel was a bonus . Only downside is that it is loacated a bit out of the old town but the metro station must be about 400 meters from the hotel .
One of best hotels in Brussels
This hotel was the closest to an American-style business hotel that we stayed at during our European trip. Overall, it was the one of the best we stayed at during our European trip. Additionally, it was a great value since we stayed on the weekend and prices fall when the "Eurocrats" leave town for the weekend (75 USD per night in mid OCT 2005).
The hotel is located in the EU sector of Brussels (take the Schumann exit of the metro and go through the exit towards the EU Commission building. Stay on that street and the hotel is 500 meters - 2.5 blocks - on your left). The hotel is of average European size with a private bath and all of the amenities - soap, shampoo, hairdryer, and bath gel. The room has both AC and heat. There is great storage space where you can store two luggage cases on one side and unpack your clothes on the other. The room also looked as though it had an ironing board included. A mini-bar is also in the room but you will need to get a key from the front desk.
All rooms have wired high-speed internet available. This should be free of charge but verify with the front desk. The staff is courteous and multi-lingual. The room had cable TV and PPV with multiple channels from most of the EU countries (Turkey is also included).
Breakfast was not included and runs 17 euro per person. However, we tried the breakfast on Sunday and it turned out to be well worth the price, especially if you need the fuel to get going on a big day of sightseeing. Breakfast consisted of cured meats, fruit, breads, eggs, bacon, pancakes, yogurt, cheeses, juices, and coffee.
As stated, this hotel was a great value. You are close to the metro and hence, Central Brussels. If you target your stay in the city over a weekend, this hotel can be a great deal. Stay where the EU stays!
For all its three star status, this hotel must be a borderline 4* with 3* rates. I paid about £51 per night including breakfast and car parking. For this kind of silly money you can spend the rest down town in Leonidas Chocolaterie!
Could be a solid 4
This hotel could be a very solid 4 star hotel. Nice lobby, decent size rooms, clean bathroom. If you are very picky, there were a few minor things like the bedspread had a little burn. For under 100 euros it was a good deal.
We had a car, so free parking was a plus, but be aware that is a little far from all the action if you don't have one. However, I believe there is a metro station very close.
They had a free coffee/cappuccino machine in the floor, nice plus for us caffeine lovers!
Taking the hotel as an octopus hot deal I was wondering about what i will find on my arriving there. When I left i was sorry that i had booked only one day! Huge single room with almost a triple bed and a small living room with two lounge chairs and a small table. There was also a DSL connection with daily fee wich i did not use. The real suprise was the bath room where combs and hair brushes were provided. Breakfast was fine in a small cosi room. If you are a coffe lover don't expect too much but as I found this happens to the whole city...All this in a 200m distance from the Europian Union Building. Bus No12 with directly connection to the airport 300m and metro station about 200m besides the EU building both. I won't search for another hotel if I return to Brussels!!!
Loved the EuroVillage Hotel
A modern, clean, quiet hotel with a helpful staff, excellent breakfast, air conditioning, and underground parking all included in the price. Just up the street from the Schuman metro station which is helpful if you don't want to drive.
We found this hotel by booking through a Thomas Cooke travel agency and saved a considerable amount of money from the published rates. They apparently work with another company that books many rooms at a time, offering them at a negotiated discount.
The only negative is the location if you're driving. This place would make a great CIA safe house. It's on a small street and everything is one way, making it a nightmare to find by car -- even with a good map. The walk from the Metro station is a breeze though.
We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

... or tranquil to nap in a park, but this has been heavily romanticized and it is not fun. I'd rather have a bed. When I finally got to check into my Hostel, I discovered that it's in the most magical space. Just steps away from The Grand Place which is a square with massive, impressive, and very old architecture. This also happens to be the city center and the main tourist attraction of Brussels so it was kind of like living in the middle of Times Square in ...
... line to get served there was one lady serving and she was slow as a wet week, then as mum got to her she wandered off to do something not really sure what she then played round with the till next to her then another girl came over and they both played with the till, mum still standing there, you can't even give them a hurry along as she didn't speak English and bonjour, merci etc was not gonna cut it so after 5 minutes or so I said to mum how desperately do you want this.....we left ...
... strange and distinct taste (even a cookie flavor) and the next day we tried some Belgium fries (to die for). We decided the next day to go back to the Grand Place (where we were last night) and explore it during the day and walk around and explore. We people watched, got some groceries, and just really enjoyed all the cute and quirky things it had to offer. We went back to our hostel cooked some pasta and garlic toast (the closest version) and had some beers ...
... and included lots of old comic strips!! We headed over to the mannequin Pis where we then had double cooked chips with mayo. We chilled listening to more jazz in the grand place. Was a lovely way to end our time in Brussels. We have just arrived in amsterdam and after a looking walk to the hotel we found it......it's errrmm....a room!! Let's just leave it at that!! Looking forward to tomorrow though!!! ...
Today was GREAT! We caught an early train to Brussels (around an hour and 20 from Paris) and took a bike tour around the city, which had many a hill. Our guide was great and because Brussels isn't as massive as Paris or London, we were able to see a lot of the city in a small amount of time.
Our meeting point was the Grand Plaza (Grand-Place), containing a market, the Town Hall (Hotel de Ville), several guild buildings, and the King's House ...
