Queen Anne Hotel
Travel Blogs from Brussels
Beautiful couple of days in Brussels.
Lovely little streets, loads of pavement cafes, fancy beers, even fancier chocolates, stunning architecture and of course a sculpture/fountain of a little boy having a wee!
Just to make you feel guilty as well as envious, we've even squeezed in a 5k run through the botanical gardens... Had to run off all the beer and chocolates!
... is the hotel. I got a bad cab driver who told me the hotel was only 10 minutes walking. Wrong!!! It was about 30 minutes...schlepping our bags all the way.
Finally to the Crown Plaza and checked in...smooth! Upgrade to Club floor! Thanks! We had maybe 15 minutes before we left (cab this time) for Grand Place Centre. Beautiful government buildings of Brussels. We met former Redline Express Dancer Wendy Williams Vastine, ...

Belgium is a small European country that we knew little about. We hadn't yet visited Belgium, but with the handiness of the Eurostar from London, we thought, why not. All we knew about Belgium was that it had good beer, and good chocolate. Throw in some nice buildings, and that was Belgium in a nutshell.
The thing with travelling is that you manage to make friends from all over the world. Lucky for us we become friends with Kris, from Belgium, while ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Queen Anne Hotel Brussels
Teuer, sehr kleine Zimmer, die einen sehr renovierungsbedürftigen Eindruck machen! Und auch nicht wirklich sauber sind. Der Frühstücksraum hat Jugendherbergscharme, das Frühstück ist aber ok. Positiv hervorzuheben ist das sehr freundliche Hotelpersonal. Und bis zur Stadtmitte ist es auch nicht weit, allerdings ist auch der Nordbahnhof nicht weit weg, und das ist ja nicht gerade eine schöne Ecke in Brüssel.
I would recommend an alternative property.
I would not recommend this hotel. There are better alternatives for your money. The rooms are small - very small. I have lived in homes with closets bigger than this hotel room. I have to admit the room was clean, breakfast was okay, the lobby is appealing, and the front desk staff were personable. But, don't let the pictures on the hotel website fool you. My room was nothing like that on the website. If I were to do it over, I would spend the extra money for a nice room in a newer hotel.
My wife and I travelled to Brussels for the weekend and stayed at the Queen Anne Hotel. This Hotel has a perfect location and is exactly a ten minute walk (strolling) to The Grand Place. The Hotel itself is spotless and our towels were changed every day of our stay. The breakfast was excellent, comprising of orange juice, tea, coffee, yoghurts, cereals, bread, rolls, cheese, cold meat, loads of bacon and scrambled eggs. The Hotel Staff were very nice and when we needed to print something from the computer they let us use their computer at Reception. Internet access is free. I could not fault this Hotel in any way and had a fantastic time in Brussels. I have recommended this Hotel to everyone I know since returning to Scotland. I cannot wait to book another weekend in Brussels and of course will definitely stay at the Queen Anne.
I knew this would be a value hotel, but I was shocked at the poor quality of this hotel. I have traveled throughout Europoe at a variety of price points but this was the worst value I have had. I cannot understand the other reviews or if other rooms were more renovated?
The building was apparently a former hostel and it looks like someone bought some furniture and other items from Design Within Reach to try cover up what the "hotel" really is. My husband stayed at some hostels in college and this place still uses their "sleeping bag" type sheets, which meant there wasn't even a top sheet between us and the comforter. They had us come downstairs for another of the "sleeping bags". Stained carpet from the hostel days, styrofoam pillows, super-cheap bathroom re-do. Pictures on the internet are very strategically taken. There was a neon light right at our window and our room glowed brightly all night. Breakfast was okay.
While it is not far from the town center, it is not the best part of town, we passed 2-3 places that appeared to be strip clubs on our ten minute walk to the square.
This hotel is centrally located less than 5 mins walk from De Brouckere metro station.
It is a very clean, well run hotel with friendly staff. There is a small bar and free internet access (including wireless networking).
The only criticism might be that the rooms are small - but compensating for that is the pretty much unlimited bacon you can have for breakfast !!
The perfect place to stay on Brussels
Great Place!!!, clean!!, the people from the front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is above the average when you campare it against other places.
Great location, just 1 block away from the metro, and 15 minutes walking from the north terminal (Gare du Nord). Even when is not in the center of the action, you have some good restaurants near and small stores where you can buy some basics and with the metro you can reach any part of Brussels on a just 5 minutes ride on the Tram or Metro.
I know many hostels that charge you the same or more and none of them compare with this place.
I spend many hours on the internet (sounds familiar?) comparing prices and locations and I can say that this was the best option and after spending 2 nights here, I can tell that is the best choice.
Of course if you are looking for a cheap place for $20.0 usd a night well probably this is not the right place and you should look for a dorm on a hostel, but if you want a low budget, nice hotel, then this is the place to go.
hotel is in great position for shopping and grand place, district is not supposed to be the best area but didnt find that. only couple of minutes to shops resturants metro etc,
average room with a large bathroom, very hot room in december so turn off the radiator!! if you dont like the heat. Breafast served in a nice room (self service) if you want a place to stay and you dont intend to spend a lot of time in your room as it is small and not fancy this is an ideal base for sightseeing.
