      Amazing stay

      Really great hotel for the value. One of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Loved the layout and design of the room, very cozy yet spacious. Market outside on Sunday morning was the perfect way to start the day. Would highly recommend.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Brussels Europe Etterbeek

      Quiet nice room but bitten in bed

      from

      hotel is a few minutes' walk from European Parliament on a corner that is busy in the day but quiet at night...except for hotel's piped music which is relentlessly piped out in all the public areas and even to the square through the night.

      Staff were friendly but early morning taxi had not been booked as promised. There was no room in the restaurant and the room service meal was not great for Sofitel.

      The room and bathroom were clean and, although the tap was loose in the sink, nicely styled.

      The problem was the wretched Sofitel bed: the duvet under the sheet may make the mattress feel soft but it's a flawed concept as it was also home to livestock which bit like crazy through the night and meant no sleep after 3 am.

      La camera è piuttosto bella, ma sono stato punto quando ero a letto

      from

      L'albergo si trova a pochi minuti a piedi dal parlamento europeo ad un angolo tra due strade che è molto animato durante il giorno, ma tranquillo di notte ... eccetto per la musica che l'albergo diffonde costantemente in tutte le aree pubbliche e di notte addirittura sulla piazza.

      Il personale era cordiale, ma il taxi che mi doveva venire a prendere la mattina presto non era stato prenotato come promesso. Non c'era posto nel ristorante e i piatti del servizio in camera sono risultati non un gran che e non all'altezza del Sofitel.

      La camera e il bagno erano puliti e sebbene il rubinetto del lavandino fosse un po' lento, vantava pur sempre un bello stile.

      L'unico problema per me era quel malefico letto Sofitel. Il piumone sotto le lenzuola può far sembrare il materasso soffice, ma è un'idea sbagliata dato che dà rifugio a tutta una serie di pulci che vi pizzicheranno a non finire durante la notte, per cui non dormirete più dopo le 3 del mattino.

      La habitación estaba bastante bien, pero me picaron en la cama

      from

      El hotel se encuentra a unos minutos a pie del Parlamento Europeo, en una esquina que está llena de gente durante el día pero tranquila por la noche...excepto por la música que viene del hotel, y que se extiende sin descanso por todas las zonas comunes e incluso por la plaza por la noche.

      El personal era amable, pero no concertaron el taxi temprano por la mañana que me habían prometido. No había sitio en el restaurante, y la comida del servicio de habitaciones no era una maravilla para tratarse de un Sofitel.

      La habitación y el baño estaban limpios y, aunque el grifo estaba suelto en el lavabo, su estilo era bonito.

      El problema era la cama tan horrible del Sofitel: El edredón debajo de la sábana de abajo hacía que el colchón suave, pero se trata de una equivocación, ya que era también el hogar de animalitos que pegaban picotazos como locos durante toda la noche y no me dejaron dormir hasta después de las 3 de la madrugada.

      Nice, modern hotel

      from

      I spent New Year's Eve at this hotel, which is quite new and looks and feels as such. It is well located for the business district, and only ten minutes from the city centre.

      The hotel had a very new and modern feeling, and at the same time was well appointed and spacious. The rooms were a good size, with a large bed, and a plasma television in each room with a plethora of channels from across the world.

      The staff were friendly throughout.

      This was a hotel that did not just have a good star rating, it also had a service to match. I find myself in Brussels again, this will be on my list of places to stay.

      A little tip, there is a little cafe in a health centre - odd I know - about 100 yards away, who served fantastic lunches. Definitely worth a look if you are staying here!

      Las excelencias del Sofitel

      from

      Un hotel que está fenomenal y un personal muy amable. Me alegraba estar alojado en una habitación tan bonita y desayunar en un restaurante tan bien decorado. Es un hotel de 5 estrellas y te gustará.

      Un hotel bueno y moderno

      from

      Pasé Fin de Año en este hotel, que está bastante nuevo y se ve y se nota que lo está. Está bien ubicado con respecto al distrito de los negocios, y a solamente 10 minutos del centro de la ciudad.

      El hotel tiene un ambiente moderno y actual, y al mismo tiempo tenía de todo y era amplio. Las habitaciones son de buen tamaño, tienen una cama grande y una televisión de plasma en cada habitación, con muchísimos canales del mundo entero.

      El personal fueron amables en todo momento.

      Este hotel no solo tiene una buena categoría de estrellas, también cuenta con un servicio a la par. Si vuelvo a Bruselas, este estará en mi lista de lugares donde alojarme.

      Un consejillo, hay una pequeña cafetería en un gimnasio - raro, lo sé - a unos 90 metros, que servía unos almuerzos fantásticos. ¡Sin duda merece la pena echarle un vistazo si estás alojado aquí!

      Excellents of Sofitel

      from

      Very nice hotel and staff very friendly.I was very hapy too stay in soo nice room and too take the breakfast in the nice decoration in restaurant. This is 5 stars hotel and you will like it.

      Gorgeous Hotel

      from

      What a lovely hotel. We only paid 95 Euros per night to stay in a luxurious modern hotel, not sure if this was an introductory rate as the hotel has just opened (back of door said rack rate 450 Euros per night!).

      Reception area very minimalist and clean, there was also a beautiful small lounge area just off the reception. Rooms were gorgeous, all clean lines and white bedding. View from the window was over the central atrium area of the hotel. Luxurious bathroom with slippers, robe and lovely smelly toiletries. All linens changed daily and room kept immaculate. The only one small complaint would be that the beds were too hot! They had a duvet over you and what felt like a duvet under you so you slept in a sort of cocoon which was very cosy but got stiflingly hot, despite the air con.

      The hotel is in the business area but only 10 mins to the metro and the square opposite offers a great selection of places to eat. There is also a pretty park opposite with a lovely lake and a jogging track (if you feel so inclined!).

      Staff were very helpful and friendly (with impeccable English) and the breakfast was great - useful tip - if you want a fry up just ask the staff, it's not laid out in the 'buffet' but is included in the price!

      Teething Trouble

      from

      New hotel in convenient (business) location. However, from start to finish, it was clear that the hotel hasn't yet developed into a 5star hotel. Not many positives (although rooms were very clean), on negative side:

      ~ slow check-in ... 2 desks for 5star hotel! had more concierges

      ~ minibar was hot not cold .. so useless basically

      ~ air conditioning partially worked at the entrance to the room, otherwise main bedroom area received little to no air

      ~ advertised gym/spa .. but not yet finished...basically nothing to use other than a few exercise machines.

      Sure it will develop into a fine hotel ... but it shouldn't be charging 5star prices right now.

      Excellent Modern Design Hotel

      from

      I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights during a weekend. This is a brand new hotel, opened in September 2006, and everything is new, modern, design-style and clean. The hotel is conveniently located near Schuman Metro station, and there is a square in front of the hotel with plenty of dining options. On Sundays there is a market in the Square. Staff are friendly. Only downside is expensive breakfast EUR25, there are many cheaper options outside hotel. Walking distance there are also two supermarkets and just across the hotel is the Museum of Science. I would certainly recommend this hotel and go back.

As I stepped up and read the faces of those who had made it there before me, I already knew our fate. The terrible human being serving as on-duty manager acted like he had literally waited ALL DAY to be able to bark at people and turn them away, taking this as an opportunity ...

I could see the bus to the Butte de Lion waiting near the station, but nobody could get the train door open. It eventually took somebody pushing the button from the platform side to free us….by which time the bus had already departed, necessitating a 30 minute in the freezing cold trying to explain the bus timetable in French to a ...

After catching up on some shut eye, getting ten hours, it's still the equivalent of 3am (New York time) when I wake up when a group from Singapore create far more noise than you would reasonably expect for people packing their things at 8.30am. I've just been wandering around Brussels ...

After watching a man dip strawberries into a delicious dark chocolate, I ventured inside to see what other things they had in store. The shopkeeper smiled and offered me a sample from a small tray. I chose one at random and popped it in my mouth. The chocolate was indescribable, and like nothing I had ever had before. "This," I ...
