Today we were up early to grab breakfast and meet Evelyn. We had pastries and I tried some white chocolate coffee for breakfast. It was very good. We were supposed to meet Evelyn on the 920 train to Bruges but we somehow got on a different 920 train that made a lot more stops. Luckily Evelyn found us at the train station. From there we walked to …
... size of one waffle you’d make in a home waffle maker. This one was even better, fresh out of the iron. I got back to my hotel, and to my surprise, I was able to check in. I set an alarm to take a quick two hour nap. 5 hours later, I woke up. I scarfed down some of my breads and cheese, and plan to venture out a few a little while to find ice and some drinks. After that, a shower sounds wonderful and a long night of sleep! Ok, and maybe a ...
... used to. We checked into our room and cleaned up a bit to look for some dinner. We quickly found the Belgium is a whole mess of languages, which we discovered on TV, none of which we spoke. We picked up Dutch, French and German. While most of the people on hotels and
restaurants spoke English if asked, it obviously wasn't their first language. This was the first time in my life I was feeling a little out of ...
... English so it went by perfectly.
We wandered around a bit. I'm still trying to get some Belgian chocolate but its all so expensive. I guess eventually I'll just have to bite the bullet and buy some. We decided to go in the Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles which is in the Grand-Place. It had about 100 costumes for Manneken-Pis. Apparently it's a tradition for visiting heads of state to donate a miniature version of their national costume. There was an ...

As I did a bit more research on Belgium's music scene, it became apparent that the country hosts a few other worthwhile festivals for those music fanatics including the pretty popular electronic music festival called, Tomorrowland. In addition, the country is frequented by awesome up and coming indie bands. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Husa President Park Brussels
On arrival the hotel looked lovely, the lobby area is decorated with marble etc.
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
