Historical Traveler Reviews Husa President Park Brussels
Don't even consider the Hotel Husa President Park, Brussels
On arrival the hotel looked lovely, the lobby area is decorated with marble etc.
However the rooms and the rest of the hotel is not what I expected from an apparent 4* hotel.
The floors and rooms were were dated, tired and nasty looking
On arriving to my floor the area was extremely dark and dingy
The door to my roomlooked like it was open/or had been forced at some stage it was warped, and I noticed that lots of the other doors were in the same condition.
The rooms was seedy, with filthy dirty, skirting boards ( I have never taken any notice of skirting boards before this)
The bathroom light were broken and constantly ficked on and off.
The face cloth looked like it had been used to do some dusting
At night everyone that passed up and down the corridor could be heard quite clearly
At check out I was told that I owed money for the bar.
I told them that I had not used the bar and therefore I was not going to pay the €9.
I was made to feel like a criminal and asked them to looat the signiture on the bar bill and my signiture. They eventually did this and it was quite clarly not mine but insisted that my room no. had been given
Eventually they said that I would not have to pay the €9, but refused to give me my receipt.
It was my first time travelling to Brussels on Business and I will definately not stay in this hotel again.
When I backpacked around the world I stayed in Hostels that were most definately cleaner and friendlier than this so called 4* hotel. The hostels were much chaeper too!
Would recommend this hotel
stayed for four nights, triple room basic but the rest
was top class, restaurant, bar and staff were very helpful
main entrance is its best feature, after that its all dull, i stayed for 2 nights was covered in bites from flee,s or midgets when i left,rooms have no colour or style, i have stayed in better 2 & 3 star hotels, very quite area more for buisness than pleasure. dont wonder outside on your own.
Warning: The hotel is located in a dangerous area. I was robbed when I waked to the hotel. Take a taxi.
A forgettable experience
The hotel is not in the best location for visitors, but offers average levels of comfort. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was rather lacklustre. No great problems were encountered but this hotel remains one of the least memorable I have stayed at.
Nice Hotel but a bit out of the way, more business class
We stayed here for 2 nights, it was a bit pricey 110 euro for the room per night
breakfast extra 19 euro. The hotel was a good walk from Grand Place, we didn't
walk it but I'd say it was at least a 30 min walk. There is a coutesy bus 4
times a day to Grand Place which is handy. We like the hotel because the rooms
were good and spacious, the breakfast was very good, the staff were very helpful
to us and food at the restaurant was good also, it suited us as we had
excurisons planned but it wouldn't have suited if we wanted to explore the
centre of brussles by foot, it's sister hotel President Centre is in a more
central location but noiser, President WTC was in a quiet location which was
Good hotel, were given an executive room at no extra charge. Buffet breakfast was ok but nothing special. Hotel is a bit out of the way from the centre (grande place) but offers a free shuttle service throughout the day
Not what was expected! Not sure how Belgium works its star ratings, but it was not what was expected for a four star hotel! i have stopped in three stars which are better. As i walked in, i was impressed, and it looked like a four star hotel, but soon as we entered our room, it was dark, dreary, dirty! It was a complete oppositte to the brochure. There were also ciggarette burns in the blankets. After kicking up a fuss, were were given a better room than the first, but it was still fairly average! At least the second room was cleaner and slightly better! Not much selection at breakfast, but ok! One advantage was the hotel provided a shuttle to the Grand Place and was close to Brussels Nord station. Overall an average stay, could have been better though!
For Grey People
Clean comfortable and very very average. Has no sense of identity, mainly for conferences. Close to the town centre 1 mile. Only problem was the shower was broken, followed their guide on how to get repairs done but needless to say they weren't. Could have been any average hotel in any western city. P.S. dont know how the Belgiums work out their star ratings

... of moist bread. But all very good. I've also added two more animals to my culinary collection: goose and rabbit. The goose tasted and looked very much like turkey, and the rabbit....like chicken. For some reason i was expecting dark meat but it was white. Everything in Prague was incredibly cheap. Amsterdam and Berlin were pretty average, but Prague was surprisingly cheap. Which now makes Brussels seem even more expensive than it already ...
Twenty more minutes and we found the Americans! We haven't heard so many American accents since we left the US. Apparently they found the Belgium Beer Festival at the Grand Place. No entrance fee but the huge plaza was packed. We met a nice couple from Florida who told us the system so we headed in to the hop-adorned, hat-wearing, international crowd to do some taste testing. Verdict? Still like those stouts and browns!

... finally go inside. The cathedral was dazzling; it is supposedly Belgium's finest Gothic cathedral and is partly famous for its world-class art collection featured throughout. Various guilds in Antwerp commissioned the Dutch Masters to create stunning triptychs with religious themes, intended for display in the cathedral. This was a great system that allowed the Catholic Church to obtain free decoration for its cathedral, and the guilds ...
... time rearranging our things to fit into three bags (including having to put the guitar inside my empty bag, then inside its case!), but we got there eventually, then checked the guitar. He wouldn't take it there though, so we had to carry it with us to the gate anyway! We went through security then after walking through the tiny airport (about as big as Avalon!) we were extremely lucky to find two seats together, as there was nowhere near ...
... street. the park was very french looking - ornamental , ordered and elegant. Place du Petit Sablon park was originally a horse market & was converted in 1890 into an elegant garden with lavish fountains surrounded by wrought iron fences. I was taken a photo of the church over the road when I heard a loud whistle blown at me for standing on the grass. Gave me such a fright!! A park ...
