      Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Windsor Hotel Brussels

      Very Nice

      from

      This hotel was very nice. The location is great for the tourist. The hotel is literally just behind the Grand Place. We enjoyed two nights at the hotel. The service was great. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The marble bathroom was small, but very clean and functional. Be advised that the famous hotel restaurant (4 Seasons) was closed for renovation. I also could hear some faint noise of construction starting at 9 AM on the 5th floor. They are renovating the hotels top floors. However, despite this one small problem, it in no way detracted from the experience. We stayed in a Business Godiva Double Room for a remarkably low rate considering the quality of the hotel.

      Great choice!

      from

      I stayed there July 13. Great place and location. Just a couple of blocks away from the heart of the old city, and one block away from Central Station, easily accessible from Midi/North Stations via the local trains. Very nice and clean rooms, good A/C... and a large bathroom with all the trimmings! However, they are renovating the top floors, and the noise starts about 9 am. So ask for a room on the 3rd (non-smoking floor), 1st or 2nd floors.

      Best hotel in Brussel.. best deal in europe

      from

      If you go to Brussels... THIS IS THE HOTEL... it is about one block from Grand Place.. the heart of Brussels... Our room was very classy and nice... the nicest room on my 5 country stay... The woodtrim was beautiful, the marbel bathrooms comfortable...the TV has your name on it when you arrive... multilingual cable... internet access is extra...

      big room even by US standards... definitely a 5 star hotel at a price that was a steal... but, the area is noisy from people at the row of restaurant just outside the hotel (which I like) but with the window the noise was quieted. Staff was excellent. Nice restaurant, bars and niteclubs in hotel.

      Excellent location

      from

      You couldn't ask for a better located hotel in Brussels. The Royal Windsor is right next to the Grand Place, but not above any of the restaurants. The rooms are small, but very well equipped and nicely decorated. There was a loud private party on the opposite side of the street going on late into our first night, but they moved us immediately to a room on the opposite side of the hotel with remarkably little hassle. The new room was one of the more expensive Godiva rooms.

      It was not much, if any, bigger than the standard room, but was again very nice (not sure if it is worth the extra though). If you are staying on after the weekend do remember that breakfast is served until 11am on the weekend, but 10.30 in the week - we very nearly missed it on our last day. We would certainly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure in Brussels.

      STAY AWAY!

      from

      Avoid this hotel at all costs! My room was burglarized while I was staying there in early March and it has taken months for them to be willing to deal with me regarding my claim. I made dinner reservations via the concierege and while out on the town my stuff was rifled through and stolen. I was up until 4 a.m. dealing with the police. They didn't change my room or even re-key the lock on my door. Now, the hotel staff couldn't have been nicer the next moring, but it has now been three months and they (and their insuror) are dragging their feet over settling the claim. If it weren't for the assistance of my attorney I doubt they'd even be talking to me. My thought is no matter what the deal on a great room in a good location, it's just not worth the risk to stay in this hotel.

      Staid but nice.

      from

      The Royal Windsor is in a great location. The front desk staff were extremely accomodating on our visit in May of 2003. Our room was small, but nicely decorated and clean. The workout facility was a disapointment and is located in the basement so I didn't use it. If you're looking for a fun hotel, don't stay here. However if you are a quiet place to escape the crazy streets of Brussels, this hotel is a good choice.

      Loved the location.

      from

      Hotel was good, pity both the 4 Seasons restaurant and Waterloo bar are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. No good if there for a weekend break.Fitness centre and sauna difficult to find if you don't ask.. (They are behind the reception and down a spiral stair) A bit embarassing if you go from your room to the sauna in your bathrobe as you MUST pass through the reception and past the Waterloo bar.Room clean if a little small. Very convenient for the City Centre. It was a longer walk from reception to our room than from reception to the city centre.

      Best Hotel in Brussels

      from

      My girlfriend and I stayed at the Royal Windsor for the weekend 21-23 March. The hotel is well located right next to the Grand Place and everything else Brussels has to offer. We had booked the hotel through the "Leading Hotels of The World" website and got a "Great affordable" package, which included full buffet breakfast. We had booked a Classic Room but at arrival we were upgraded to a Godiva Room which is a Deluxe Room. The room was very beautiful and well furbished with a large bed and marble bathroom. The staff was very helpful and we felt very welcome at the Hotel. The buffet breakfast was amazing and the service in the restaurant excellent-. The next time we go to Brussels we will stay at "The Royal Windsor" Again. I will recommend "The Royal Windsor" to everybody because this hotel is worthy of all Five stars.

      Excellent location

      We stayed at the windsor the weekend of March 22-24. It is located right downtown Brussels, and the service is amazing. We had the Godiva room, which was only a bit expensive than the regular, but much more spacious. We didn't eat at the hotel as the meals were over 30 dollars. Try another restaurant, but stay away from the Greek food there, the Gyros, is absolutely dreadful. I can say that because I am Greek, and while the whole area there has about 30 gyros shops, stay away, it will give you a horrible stomach ache. I thought US gyros was bad, but is a delicacy compared to that. The Griffin club in the hotel is very nice, but more directed towards 40-50 year olds, not for 23 year olds. Excellent hotel for business people who also want to see brussels, I wouldn't reccomend it to younger people though. Our experience was really good, I just hoped that there was a younger crowd in the hotel. Pambos

      Wow!! What a hotel!

      from

      The Royal Windsor offers the royal treatment in the heart of Brussels. A beautiful lobby with gracious, helpful staff and a very warm welcome upon a very early arrival made this hotel a top pick for us. The rooms - while small - appear to be newly renovated with modern and sophisticated furniture. The marble bathrooms are very nice (and come complete with a shower curtain - often a luxury in Europe). The service was excellent and when we complained the room was chilly, a floor heater was immediately placed in our room. Extra towels and robes were delivered immediately following the request and the concierge offered supurb restaurant recommendations. This hotel is a find - and while it would be worth paying the rack rate, great deals can be found on-line, making the deal even sweeter.

      Day 38: Sprouts of the Brussels variety

      Today was a day for exploring Brussels. We took the 10am train into town. Our first stop was the iconic peeing boy fountain. The statue was only about eighteen inches of so high and the little stream coming out seemed so innocent. We spent about three minutes there and moved on. How long can you actually spend looking at that?

      Our next stop took us to the other side of the train station to a small park. It was again nice to walk in the leaves ...

Airport didn't take long and we were off the Belgium again, but this time Brussels, took the train to Rotterdam again, and hi speed to Brussels. Food for lunch today was interesting. We found a store called like del haizen, it has the exact same symbol as food lion but a little different and by that I mean a little smaller and sketchier. I bought some meat I ...

With puppets hanging from the ceilings and the former lead puppeteer drinking nearby, we had our first sample: Triple Karmeliet, a tripled fermented lager that is similar to the Hoogarden we drink in the States, but better. After getting to chat about the history of the theater and getting to know our group (Eric is a Canadian here working for the Olympics, and the group of 3 was a small family from Columbia.

We walked further along the cobbled streets, past all the horse carriages and checked out the Begijnhof, inhabited by Benedictine nuns. The church and the courtyard there were both beautiful. By then we were all tired. We headed back to the train station and Evelyn rode with us until Brussels. We had a great time and are so glad we ...

We got to St. Pancras at around 7:15 and I went through the ticket barrier. Andrew of course, somehow misplaced his printed ticket, and spent a while trying to get some guys in the business lounge to print him off another one, until he found it tucked into his ‘man wallet’, ...
