Central business style hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 11, 2011

This hotel is very centrally located to the historic areas and can be walked easily. The hotel is also only one block away from metro and Brussels Central Train Station, so transit by rail is easy to nearly all of Brussels, the airports and beyond.

The rooms are relatively new, so the furniture is more modern and in good condition. The room descriptions on the web site may not match what you actually get (for example my room on internet said I'd have a sofa but I did not), but the rooms are quite nice nonetheless. The bed, desk, bathrooms and chairs were all good.

Unique Quality: The hotel offers free internet in the lobby. There is a bar in the hotel, but it is slightly more expensive.

The breakfast buffet is quiet nice, particularly for those with a more North American breakfast appetite.

It is part of the Accor Hotel group for those with membership status.

Directions: One block west of Brussels Central Train Station and about ~3 minute walk from the Grand Palace.

I stayed here on a business trip when work paid, wanting to be close to the Central station and metro whilst being in the city centre too. I knew this location cannot be beaten, with the hotel being only two blocks away from the Grand Place and at the same time just a block away from the Central station which is by far the least seedy of the Brussels stations and great for moving around.

The room was spacious and had a comfy double bed and a sofa. The TV had loads of cable channels which is only to be expected in Belgium, so you will have all sorts of channels on what was in fact a flat screen TV. The bathroom was separated from the toilet in our room and I found it peculiar that the toilet had no sink. Despite facing the street, the room was quiet and not too hot nor cold. The room also had a mini bar and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was in their "Food court" area which doubles as a restaurant in the evening and left nothing to wish for. Croissants, bread rolls and cereals of all sorts along with yoghurt, fresh fruit and so on. We dined in the restaurant once as we knew the Ilot Sacrë quarters nearby to hold either tourist trap places or fully booked ones and it was raining heavily. The food was great and service friendly but discreet. My only complaints were that the decoration looked more like some bright contemporary Scandinavian design which I had just escaped rather than snug Belgian, and that the menu could also have held more Belgian things rather than a sort of experimental international variety. The portions are also not for the starving type, especially considering the price but then again this is a city centre hotel restaurant in the capital of Europe so as such we did not feel robbed. I would definately stay here again if I could find a good internet rate again (otherwise it is quite expensive for what it is due to the location - you can find similar rates for more famous hotels). They just need to sort out this thing with your key card operating the lift - sometimes it would not work...

I have been three times to this Novotel. I had twice the bad luck to experience works of renovation and three times a new trainee who could not check me in and out.
Rooms are like in all Novotels, so you are not surprised.

Unique Quality: The new restaurant offers a good atmosphere and modern, ecclectic food, trying to remind the Belgian cuisine

Central Hotel in Brussels

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I like the Novotel Chain, it has a good standard and marevllous service. We are Preferred Guests which mean we get first choice of rooms and don't have to check out until 2.00pm instead of 11am as usual. You can also get points which you can use for free weekends and also at the Ibis Hotel chain.

This novotel had a bar, restaurant, good sized lobby, minibar TV internet connection and wake up service in the room, good sized bath/shower and separate bog.

They have electronic keys which you have to use in the lifts to make it work, a good security measure. They also give you tickets for the breakfast room in the morning, but don't bother, it's 15 euros extra and not worth the money. You'd do better to go to a cosy cafe and get hot coffee and croissants. Or go to the place just opposite across the road for takeway pastries and hot drinks.

Unique Quality: I liked the view from the windows of this hotel over a small square in the heart of Brussels. It's also right in the centre and a short walk from Grand Place (about 2 mins). There is a sandwich place just opposite for lunch at 2 Euros but if they put in salad and veggies, it costs a bit more *about 40 cents*.

It's about 5 minutes walk from Brussels Centrale Station so very easy to get to.

Directions: 120 Rue Marche aux Herbes Brussels

Expensive

Another hotel in Brussels which could easily be called overpriced. I don’t know but I found hotels were very expensive in Brussels. You don’t mind staying in a nice expensive hotel when you are getting 100% of your money but like other hotels in Brussels, it was another hopeless hotel.

Novotel Off Grand'Place is such a nice hotel. I don't have any complain, but I was waiting for something better. Room was OK and so was toilet.
However, they had a weekend promotion, so it was cheaper than always.

Directions: Two blocks from Brussels' Gare Centrale
