An interesting place to stay!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 7, 2013

I booked this hotel with my Eurostar ticket; so I did make a saving on the bill. I had booked a business class type room. It was comfortable and warm; I was right on the corner so I had two different views.

Unique Quality: Interesting decoration throughout the hotel as well as free wifi. There is a kiosk in the lobby but they do give you two free bottles of water in the room fridge.

Fairly good restaurant in the hotel.

Two colours of key (orange means you pay extra for breakfast!)

Directions: Next to the Botanical Gardens

Hotel Bloom

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 4, 2013

This hotel used to be Royal crown hotel but now has been renovated in 2008 and now named "Hotel Bloom" completely modern decorated with unique hand painted artwork (or they call it "fresco")on the wall.All rooms has contemporay fresco that painted by 287 different young artists from European fine arts school.My room was painted by Olle Soderstrom ,Swedish artist.We'll see little details of the artist and their work attched on the wall. The room is quite spacious and they said it's one of largest room in Brussels. It's about 30 square metre,the room I stayed is "L room twin" number 345. It's on the back side of hotel so it's quite quiet.The room is so bright because everything is in white colour,free wifi ,good coffee machine with delicious coffee provided ,including decaffeinated.,2 bottles of Spa water one red and one blue(with and without gas), refridgerater that you can chill your own drink.My room rate is 75 euro,if need breakfast plus 15 euro person per night,it's very good breakfast,I love the self-made pancake machine. The hotel now offer many kinds of promotion like "woow breakfast deal" which you'll get room like mine and if stay 2 nights the second day free breakfast ,you can choose fresco if you'd like.If you need bigger bed,they have "double double room",40 square metre with 2 double beds.
If you need to park your car,the parking is underground at the back side of the hotel.Fare per hour is 2.5 euro (not sure) and 25 euro per day.
The hotel is located in very good location ,next to Botanical garden , 300 m. to Brussels Nord train station , 650 m. to walking street and about 1.5 km. to the Grand Place.
Around the hotel we can find cheap drinking and eating place near by ,just cross the street and walk a bit to a small street pararell to the main one.It seems to be a little boring street but I can have cheap food and drink there instead of expensive place to eat downtown.

Very Comfy, especially now after renovation ...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 24, 2012

I did stay in this Hotel so many times, as it was before named as Royal Crown Hotel and now Hotel Bloom .... Hotel has a good location to reach all in about 15 mins walk, but as rooms and as the Hotel was such in a bad condition and oldfashioned .... But just about three years ago, the Hotel had a renovation from A to Z, and also had a name change, now all is superb ...

The rooms are VERY comfy and well designed, large and hightech, u can connect ur mp3 to the flat square TV, nice coffee machine, big bathrooms etc etc ...

Breakfast is good and well sorted, also the new bar on the right side of the Lobby is very nice as u go back to hotel after a heavy business meeting ...

Surrounding is nothing interesting, just across the street is a supermarket, in case u need some last minutes shoppings, toothpaste, chewing gum or whatever, which stays till late open and opens up early ... :)

As u go out of the Hotel and walk down the way to the right again, u gonna reach the main crossing in 15 mins which leads u to the way of Palaces and Squares ... Dont forget to taste the famous chocolates on ur way ...

It was a problem before as it was noisy rooms due to the traffic in front of the hotel, agency busses, cabs etc, but now after renovation as double glassed windows, I had a god sleep w the new comfy beds and pillows ...

Very recommandable Hotel, especially as said, after renovation now ...

Directions: Next to the Botanical Garden.

very good hotel in good area

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 4, 2005

just returned from this hotel where my wife and i stayed for five days.this is a true four star hotel i was put off by some reviews but found them to be out of date.we stayed june 29-july3 2005.new carpets in passageways newly decorated rooms inroom safe nice quiet position near the lovely botanique gardens.so easy to get anywhere in brussels but use the trams right outside the hotel (92-93-94) you see so much more of brussels fantastic buildings and huge squares.a must is the restaurant above the museum of musical instruments.lovely view.

Unique Quality: dining room was very good but i must agree that breakfast at 20 euros was expensive when you can walk around the corner and get fresh croissants and really good coffee and a glass of orange juice for 4 euros!.i felt safe walking back at night to the hotel even at midnight this couldnt be said at the hotel my sons stayed at near gare de noord.the gardens of Botanique are outstanding so are the views (depending on the room position ofcourse!) from the hotel we were on the fourth floor and could see downtown.

Directions: from central or gare de noord take a taxi- its cheap 8-10euros ask for mercure botanique. .use the tram - bus.but do have a walk around the streets opposite and drool at the pastry shops, mercure is the building top right corner on photo

OLD ROYALTY

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 8, 2004

Officialy , the Royal Crown is a 4* hotel.
I stayed there on february 2004. The building is quiet decrepit and in a very bad repair. The rooms are big but old fashionned, and i didnt have hot water on the morning during my stay. It's a good 2stars..maybe 3 stars hotel at the moment. A complete facelift is expected. Grand Place and city centre is about half hour walking. The aera around the hotel is horrible except Le Jardin Botanique, and be carefull at night, it's dangerous!

Unique Quality: I paid 70€ / night (internet week-end rate)the official price is 270€ (LOL!!!!!!),
then i can not say that's too much....
But there are a plenty of 2* or 3* in city centre.
The restaurant of the Royal Crown is good.
Subway station close to the hotel.

Directions: Jardin Botanique

The Royal Crown Grand Hotel...

by written on August 25, 2002

The Royal Crown Grand Hotel Mercure (what a mouth full!) is a 5 star hotel located near the Botanic Gardens. Though it is a 5* hotel I think that there are 4* hotels that offer more. (Such as the Dorint). But of course, this isn't a bad choice. Good location, nice rooms and basically equiped with everything a person might need.

Directions: Rue Royal 250, Brussels. Next to the Botanical Gardens.

That's me inside my hotel room...

by written on August 24, 2002

That's me inside my hotel room here at the Royal Crown Grand Hotel Mercure (see pic below). This hotel is ideally located right in the heart of the city and just next to the picturesque Botanical Gardens. The EEC buildings, business and shopping districts are all within easy reach. And this lovely first-class hotel is also within walking distance to the museums and the world-famous Grand Place!

To go to the Grand Place from the Royal Crown Grand Hotel Mercure, all you need to do is to just turn right (from the hotel entrance) and it's a straight 5-minutes walk down all the way. Simple eh?

Oh, and the hotel's fitness center and solarium is also worth checking out. Very nice!

I just checked the rates @ end-November 2000 and this is the rough guide:

- Weekdays: 9000 BEF

- Weekends: 4500 BEF

So, if you can, try and check in during the weekend to enjoy the above special rate!

Unique Quality: This hotel has a very famous restaurant called 'Hugo's' serving EXCELLENT French cuisine. However, I didn't get a chance to dine at this fine eaterie because I didn't have the time. Oh, and the money too.... :-((

Directions: Address: Rue Royale/ Koningsstraat 250, 1210 Brussels.
