Large rooms, bathroom spacious, shower very small, free wifi, door on bathroom, (not like our last hotel) rooms a good size. There is a safe in the room. Wifi very slow. Restaurant not up to the standard of the hotel, although it is a very pleasant atmosphere.

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Atlanta Brussels
Great weekend get away
We spent a weekend in late Dec here. Great location very close to Grand Place and main shopping area behind hotel. Staff were slow but very pleased with the room and good breakfast with hot and cold buffet although smoking in breakfast room was unpleasant. For the money 54 pounds was excellent value. Definitely recommend. Had the best sleeps at this hotel. Very comfortable bed and complete darkness with drapes closed.
Worst stay in Brussels in the last years
Great rooms and great rates - I agree - but inexistant service, the staff is entirely helpless when under stress. Impolite, no smile receptionists and no management available in case of a problem with your room. No wake-up calls, no luggage carriage except if you travel as a group.
Extremely expensibe breakfast for little value (no service, malt coffee from a single coffee machine, aso.)
Never again - the Metropole hotel is located next door, offering splendid rooms, great weekend rates and a first class service!!
4 Star - Exactly Correct
We stayed at the NH Atlanta in Early December 2004.
The Hotel is in a Very Good location. The Restaurant on Level 9 above all of the surrounding building is nice, even if it does face out the less interesting direction (Away from the Grand Place), so there is not a lot of note to look at. We travelled with 2 babies, yet even for a hotel of this size they only had 1 high chair!, which made things a little difficult. The breakfast was the usual fare for this standard of hotel, but the bonus being it was (Self) Served upto 11.00am.
The Hotel Room were smartly furnished, but on the slightly small size.
The Reception staff were friendly, but lacking in current tourist knowledge. We asked if the Atomium was open as we had heard it was being refurbished but they didn't even know that, and judging by the lack of interest by the receptionist she wasn't interested in finding out for us. (The tourist information centre later told us it is closed for refurbishment until january 2006).
All in all its 4 star rating is appropriate. A smart clean hotel but a little characterless.
In a Very Good location, but not upto the standards, or character of the Metropole Hotel (5 Star), just 50 yards away, where we stayed a couple of years ago. (We would have stayed there again but the metropole doesnt have its own parking and the Atlanta did @ 20euro's per night)
The hotel was booked via the website for the hotel group which proved to be less expensive than some other hotel internet sites. All areas of the hotel were clean and modern and the location was convenient to railway stations, shops and restaurants. The buffet breakfast was well presented and the staff continuously replaced items as they ran low. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
Stayed at the Atlanta over the Xmas market time and it was lovely. The hotel is on the level of a 5*. The rooms are huge and very nicely done inside. The breakfast was vast as well with a wide selection. Will be staying here again this year.
Right where you need to be
This hotel was great. We stayed for a weekend and found nothing wrong at all. The room was very spacious and the shower was amazing! I don't think I've had a better shower in a hotel! Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The internet rates for the hotel were excellent, especially for what you'te getting: a 4-star hotel, right where you need to be in the centre of Brussels.
The main shopping street is literally a 30 second walk from the front door. Our room looked out over the shopping street and even though you would expect there to be a lot of noise during the day, there wasn't. Not that you'd be spending much of the day in your hotel room! I would highly recommend this hotel. The only worry you would have during your stay in Brussels is choosing which beer to drink.
A genuine 4-star hotel.
My wife and I have just enjoyed 6 days at this excellent hotel. It is ideally situated for both shopping and sightseeing, as well as being close to a main-line rail station. (And the rail services in Belgium are first-class.)
The rooms are large, clean comfortable and well-apointed.
This is a genuine 4-star hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Very nice first class hotel in every way. Excellent location, close from the main shopping area and sights of the city, only a few minutes to walk from the Grand Place (main square).
There are large American groups staying at the hotel, you feel somehow "exotic" if you don't belong to the tour group... nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay very much at this hotel.
An excellent hotel, very classy, almost bordering on snooty. This is mostly a business hotel, so don't expect a lot of activities, but it is VERY nice. Marble staircases, and crystal chandeliers, and brass trim everywhere. They even have a pillow service, if you find pillow is not acceptable, and they will pick up your shoes and have them shined! It is right next to a very good shopping district.
A fine place
This is a true 4 star hotel in an older building in an excellent location. The rooms are large and freshly renovated. Everything was extremely clean and well maintained. Despite the location in the middle of everything the rooms are quiet. The front deak staff was somewhat overwhelmed at check-in and check-out. The breakfast room on the 9th floor offers an excellent view and a very good, but expensive, buffet breakfast.

Today starts off with a lot of blue people milling around the square with the giant smurf. It is global celebrate smurf day, unfortunately we were off to catch a bus into the the country side of Belgium so we, were unable to join in.

On reaching Bruges, we were delighted to see the beautiful town & our hotel- Prinsenholf. This one was the best out of the rest & was run by a women only team.

... The basilica itself was… interesting. We walked around it and then stepped inside, admiring its beauty. Then, we decided it was time to hit the WC, and saw signs to a cafeteria, which was the first indication of weirdness. When we walked down, there was a restaurant and bar. Directly underneath the altar.
Inside the restaurant there was also a stage. According to the posters lining the walls of the bathrooms, the basilica, at night, ...
