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.

... architecture and detailed statues on the exteriors of buildings. One amusing statue nearby was the child peeing which is another dubious claim to fame for Belgium.
Finally we had some "traditional" Belgian cuisine of fried mussels, steak and Belgian waffles with ice cream on top, of which, the dessert was all that really needed tasting.
... night. Our last stop in Brussels was to Maneken de Pis, which is a staute of a peeing boy, there are a lot of legends explaining the statues significance. The statue is also dressed in costumes several times each week, the wardrobe consists of several hundred different costumes. The next day we made it back to the airport and went back to Cork, which we all were more than happy to return to.
... to get the tram and metro easily back into the city and on the way back to the hostel I popped into the Irish pub we were at last night where I found my room mates (I thought they’d be here again as there was another football/soccer game on that night). Anyway we stayed there for a little while as they had some pretty good music going before we all went back to the hostel and back to ...

... they had.
Let's see, most interesting bit? The underground was pretty cool (the first day), and I really liked the Natural History museum. But the best part was watching the England/Germany game in O'Neils, the pub my lovely sister Emily recommended. It's this huge church made into a pub, and it's really cool inside. It was decorated with flags and widescreens during the game, and there wasn't a seat to be had even an hour and a half before, when we got there. We had food ...
