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

... It was sad how a lifestyle like this would be pronounced as a tourist destination, but it was a reality. Dam square, our next stop, we walked into a hotel called The grasshopper. It overlooked the Main Street and a beautiful evening sky. It was 10 pm & the sky was a mild velvety colour, with a blue tinge. Beer & spring rolls were on the menu, we walked to centraal after trying our hands at some night photography of the famous trams & the Centraal station.

Oh, boys will be boys and what better for a town symbol than the Manneken Pis. First recorded in history in the 1400's but it's origin is actually unknown. He has been stolen many times. He always needs to be there so when he was stolen the last time the first thing to police did was replace him with a replica from the museum while they sought out the original. Once caught the thieves were sentenced to create a costume for ...
... and right in the middle of the main historic part of town. Nothing fancy but we were thrilled to learn it has air conditioning. The weather has been great but the nights are stuffy without air. We will sleep like babies tonight. We made it to five miles of walking each day. John and/or I have been wearing our fitbits. We mostly walked around the old ...

Brussels is known for it's chocolate.
The Hotel Amigo is a 5 star hotel
... From there, the boy urinated on the troops of the Berthouts, who eventually lost the battle.
We had a traditional Belgian beer and then walked near the Palace of Justice and City Hall. We also wondered through Petit Sablon, and in it is a beautiful garden with so many statues and tulips blooming. We were able to find Place Poalert (just in front of the Palace of Justice) and have a view of the entire city. We took the elevator down and had dinner ...
