Travel Blogs from Ixelles
Day 1 – Belgium
We arrived in Brussels on the Eurostar - that was an experience. Pretty cool travelling at something like 250km per hour. The minute we arrived we hopped in a rental car and zooted off to Brugge, the most well preserved medieval town in Europe (other-worldly actually). It was such an experience sitting in the …
Today, our last in Kingsbridge was slow paced. At noon Sarah and I headed to town to shop for dinner. On our return we got the basics of dinner ready before walking to the cafe at Loddiswell. There we had "cream tea" what people in Devon call Devonshire tea, it ...
... long after we sat down and started handing us flyers in a different language. We said we don't understand but they have us more pamphlets saying they're free. They put heaps on the table and said read them read them. So we said okay thanks. Then they grabbed the remainder of the flyers an left. We thought that was weird... Then Cam said has everyone got their **** and I realised they had taken my iPhone from right in front of me. I chased after them but they were long gone. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu EU Hotel, Brussels Ixelles
In Aug 2006, we booked our room at the SAS EU through Hotels.com. We requested a room for 3 people and received a confirmation, even showing no additional charge for the 3rd person.
Ich machte mir ein wenig Sorgen, dass dieses Hotel sich in einem Geschäftsviertel, fernab aller Sehenswürdigkeiten, befinden würde. Ja, es lag in einem Geschäftsviertel aber Brüssel ist eine kleine Stadt und man kommt mit den öffentlichen Nahverkehrsmittlen sehr gut und günstig überall herum, lassen Sie sich also nicht von der Lage abschrecken. Das Hotel ist sauber und ordentlich. Die Zimmer sind groß und hell, sehr schön eingerichtet und die Betten sind sehr bequem.
Es ist fünf Gehminuten vom Stadtzentrum entfernt, das Zimmer war geräumig, modern, sauber und verfügte über alles, was man sich nur wünschen konnte. Das einladende Personal hatte immer ein Lächeln auf den Lippen, das Restaurant ist gut. Kaffee, Tee und Sprudel gibt es für die Club Room Gäste kostenlose (im Preis ist auch Frühstück eingeschlossen). Die Bar ist recht teuer, alles in allem sehr empfohlen.
A great place in the business district
I would echo other reviews. We found this to be a superb hotel, but it's not exactly near tourist attractions. It is, however, near the Brussels Luxemburg train station, which can get you to tourist central in a few minutes. The only reason we don't give it 5 stars is that the prices in the restaurant are ridiculous. 25 Euro per person for breakfast? Talk about gouging people who have few other choices in the area in the morning. We just took the train to Central Station and ate at McDonalds for 4 Euro each. Brussels is a ridiculously priced city everywhere, but this hotel takes it to new levels.
I was a little worried that this hotel was going to be stuck in the business district away from all the sights. Yes it was in the business district, but Brussels is a small city and getting around on public transport is quick and cheap, so don't let the location put you off the hotel.
The hotel is very clean and fresh. Rooms are large and bright, well decorated and have very comfy beds.
Nice place to stay for the money
The hotel is a great place to stay if you have business in the area. Being brand new it is very clean and comfortable and the bathroom is large and very nice. The location is not desirable for anyone here on vacation. It is approximately a thirty minute walk to the tourtist locations and the area surrounding the hotel was deserted on the weekend. There were no restaurants other than the one in the hotel open and the area surrounding the hotel was not the most desirable. I would not stay at this hotel again on the weekend but perhaps during the week it would be more lively.
a 5 minute walk from the heart of the centre of town, specious, modern, clean room withh all the thing you need or want. Welcoming staff profiding service with a smile, a good restaurant. free coffee/te/soft drinks on the floor for club room users (price includes breakfast). The bar is a bit pricy. alltogether worthy of recomendation.
great hotel but expensive for food 25 euros for breakfast location not bad easy to get a bus down into the main town and shopping area
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend and were very impressed by the overall quality.
A very chic hotel
I'm writing this review as I'm sitting in the hotel room, really modern and chic. LCD Sony TV, really bright and vibrant colours and a reasonable size room. Bathroom has both a bath and shower cubicle - really modern and well designed.
The hotel is very new and the service is already what you can imagine to expect from Radisson SAS - the lobby looks fantastic, you can say the same about the rooms.
Its a business persons hotel, not been located in downtown Brussels and close to the EU parliament building. I paid 77 EUR for one night - which I think is a bargain for such a great hotel!
