      Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Brussels Centre

      Let down by careless cleaning

      from

      We, 2 adults and one teenager, stayed here for two nights, Dec 28-29, 05. The location was good - close to shopping in Rue Neuve, close to Restaurants and tourist areas. The hotel was typical Novotel. I thought cleaning could have been better - the drain hole in the wash hand basin was grimy and the design made this very visible. Also there was visible grime where the bath joined the shower cubicle. Most of the staff were very good but we came across one who didn't seem to care.

      It was good value (€ 75 per night w/o breakfast) and I would have gone back but a flight cancellation meant we stayed one night in Novotel off Grand Place and while it was dearer (105 per night including breakfast) it is in a much better location and it was cleaner.

      Nice Place, but

      from

      I would recommend people to stay at the Grand Place branch instead just because that location is fantastic. I do not have any specific complaints for this hotel, in fact it was very comfortable and the breakfast was good.

      "A Bargain for Brussels"

      from

      Great city center hotel for the price. Close walking distance to restaraunts, sightseeing and shopping. We stayed here for 75 euros for a family of four. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful. The pool in the hotel is cool and the kids will love it. There are two sauna's in the pool area that have got to be the hottest in the world. Get ready to have fun finding this hotel if you are driving, the street names change about every block in the city and so does the direction. Parking for the hotel is about 15 euros a night and is located across the street. Have a great visit, Brussels is beautiful. Try a hot Belgian waffle with melted chocolate, they are awesome.

      If you go to Brussels, go to this hotel

      from

      This hotel was the best choice of a seven days trip around France, Belgium and the Netherlands. It was extremely cheap and well located in Brussels in a quiet area. The room was spacious and very very clean with a great view. People in the reception desk were very friendly and helpful.

      I must recommend it for any kind of traveller.

      Excellent city hotel to visit with the kids!

      from

      This was a great weekend stay. We went with our boys (9 & 4) and were constantly surprised at just how central the hotel was. There is absolutely no shabbiness to be found anywhere in the hotel, a definite plus in Europe, and the rock swimming pool, steamroom(s) (haman's) were a great touch as we were out the door by 9a.m. and didn't return until around 4 or 5 p.m. each day. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was more than enough if you're into great breads, cheeses, fresh fruit etc. The english breakfast, or their version of it, I don't think I'd recommend as very good.

      Everything is 5-10 minutes walking distance from the hotel and if you're looking for a wonderful area to have a coffee or lunch outside, then go to the St. Gery. There are 3 -5 bars on the corners and they're all good.

      Also, we highly recommend a visit to the Comic Strip Museum. Not much to see for the very young, but kids between 8 and 16 should like it very much. The War museum in the Jubelpark is also very interesting with lots of tanks, swords and stuff. The boys loved it and admission was free!

      We're definitely going to back to Brussels for another weekend, with or without the boys.

      Ideal for family

      from

      The location is very central, between the Grand-Place and the place Sainte-Catherine with very good restaurants. The indoor swimming-pool is very pleasant, the room is spacious and the breakfast is good.

      Triple-glazing works

      from

      Five minutes walk from the city centre and although it is on a busy road the triple-glazing which is a feature of modern Novotels works a treat. We went for a pre-Christmas break when the Grand Place, surely Europe's finest square, was sensationally illuminated and there were 200 and more Christmas market stalls dotted around the city centre. Much livelier than London or our nearest city Oxford at this time of year. Brussels is also perfect for day trips to Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent - all an hour or less on the train. Our 12-year-old went ice-skating daily on the outdoor rinks which are a seasonal feature of all these cities. Excellent buffet breakfast at the Novotel, although British guests might be surprised to see both smokers and dog owners imposing their addictions and pets on other breakfast guests. A couple of drawbacks: The so-called swimming pool is miniscule .... and the 3-bedded room which we specifically booked turned out to be a double and a couple of rickety sofa beds.

      Spacious room, good location, great value

      from

      This hotel is very modern but has been constructed with a sympathetic regard to the environs. We got a very good deal from HotelClub, 100 Euros for a double room with full breakfast. The room was very spacious with a large double bed plus a sofa. There is a nice little gym & swimming pool in the basement. Centrally situated so in easy walking distance of the marvellous Grand Place. Lots of restaurants nearby - if you are a fish connoisseur, then head for nearby Place St Catherine which is full of restaurants advertising lobster & mussels. The best restaurant we found was Raphael, on Rue Marche Aux Herbes. We ate there two nights in a row & received complimentary aperitifs on the second occasion which was a nice touch. I have no problem in recommending both the hotel & the restaurant.

      Great place. good value

      from

      Nice hotel. It is a business hotel, so don?t expect too much charm, but it is a very well rum place, with lots of nice features. It has steam bath, pool, a spa (but the spa is the same temperature as the pool) and sauna. The rooms are very large. Make sure you ask for a room facing the square by the church, since the other side faces a parking building. The weekend rates are much cheaper than during the week. We paid 100 euro inclusive their large and well-equipped breakfast buffet. It is located close to most things, and is about 500 meter from Grand Place. I can highly recommend it, both with and without children, next time we will bring ours.

      Perfect Family hotel, Fab location

      from

      For around 100 Euro, direct from the Novotel website, we got a quad room, full buffet breakfast, use of the new fitness center, 2 small clean sauna (hammas), and the fun rock-garden indoor pool which the kids loved, plus a kiddie play area with legos and playstation in the room. 2 blocks from the Grand Place and good Vietnamese cafe around the corner. Our new favorite in Brussels, passing the Sheraton Towers on every level.

      ... The first element of the rehearsal was a 90 minute "mis-en-scene", a run through of how, when and where to move on and off stage. After lunch break we had a rehearsal of the entire piece, with the orchestra.

      While the local choirs had a rehearsal, we went for a walk and sampled a couple of bakeries - both recommended ☺

      Back for our 4.30pm rehearsal, and found it was pushed back to 5pm. This was a ...

I can't imagine how much I'd be hating this trip if I were having experiences like that, but fortunately I've always had a campsite planned out or a hostel booked at least a couple of nights in advance. In the case of the UK, I've got bookings for the next week already. Tomorrow is stressing me out a little. I tried to find a ride on car share websites like blablahcar.com.

      ... after Amsterdam, I rode a bike to a windmill and am very happy I did! Most of the 8 kilometer ride was along a canal path but the ride through the square made me nervous. The cottages along the ride were adorable. They looked like something out of a book. We passed horses, and cows along the way and to make the the bike ride along a canal to a windmill even more quaint, there were sheep when we got there. ...
