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.

... Sadly the most interesting bit of building we saw was the remains of a small castle that once protected the waterways. Most of it had been knocked down to make way for the build a new quay and so only a small part remained. After getting back to camp we packed up and set off for 'Gent'. On the map and pictures we saw of the place it looked small and quaint with a river running through the middle. How decieving again, the place was big and awkward with no car parking so we didn't ...
... at a hole-in-the-wall bistro popular with locals, and dined on some fabulous Flemish food. (We also resolved to cook the next two nights, because Euro prices in Western Europe are not friendly to our food budget. Fortunately, frites and waffles are cheap, so we knew we could always eat plenty of those.) No sense skimping on beer, though--it's a huge part of Belgium's culture, and we certainly wouldn't want to compromise our cultural ...
... of young girls speaking English at a nearby table, so I decided it was alright to go in as long as I sat with them. Everyone was speaking French, so I wasn't exactly sure what to do. Once I was given food, a plate piled high with vegetables, beans and rice, I headed to the table with the English-speaking girls. I soon learned they were about my age traveling around on a 5-month trip as part of their gap year and had come across this place the ...
... here and that is what counts . Not at all sure that there are any airlines left that get it done right even part of the time. Take your money, get you there when they feel like it and oh by the way, we cost you time and money, but hey, now that you are here, just go away and be quiet. And yes roumer had it that we are here to serve you. Love to all who are still at ...
... At the end of the park is the Palais Royal, the official home of the Belgian monarch. It’s got a nice-lookin’ front, but looks a little government-building-ish. We couldn’t go in because it’s only open a whole 6 weeks out of the year.
What we thought was a short walk away is the Parc du Cinquantenaire. But it kept going and going. It was probably a good mile and a half walk from where we had ...
