    Convenient to the European Quarter


    A very quick ride from the Brussels railway station and in a quiet street and very friendly staff at the front desk and large rooms and good restaurants near by. metro trone was a short walking distance away.

    Unique Quality: the staff were very friendly and i enjoyed their special attention including speaking various languages.

    after Paris a hotel price of 75 euros for this large room seemed very reasonable

    Nice hotel in an Upscale Neighbourhood


    wanted to be in this neighbourhood to visit Friends nearby. it is a short 10 euro taxi ride fro Bruselas Midi station.

    Unique Quality: Very pleasant front desk staff. All English speaking, in fact that is the first language they speak to you in. Compare that with Paris just one hour and 10 minutes away where you would be lucky to find someone speaking English
    large rooms with the usual accoutrements
    free wi fi that is why i am able to report on the hotel straightaway

    the size of the room is almost american rather than european. Large rooms really. there is a small alcove with a desk where you can work or use your computer. Nice lighting

    weekend direct rates are 79 euros per room. breakfast is extra at 15 euros.
    all in all a good bargain

    Good Hotel


    Very pleasant hotel, Good location and Friendly staff. I would recommend booking just a room and not b&b,half board or Full board as this will reduce the cost dramatically. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the Local area. The closest Metro station is troone which takes you easily to all the places you need to go.

    Unique Quality: Very nice rooms and good air conditioning.

  • Top class hotel in the EU quarter


    Modern, clean with 149 rooms. Superb service - as you'd expect from a Radisson.

    Large plush rooms with all mod cons - shower and bath, kettle, iron, hairdryer, mini-bar/fridge, a desk, chairs, broadband access, flat screen television with BBC One and many other channels.

    It is not a huge hotel and the single bar/resturant called 'Willards' is situated downstairs. Prices e.g. 4€ for a large beer or glass of wine

    Unique Quality: Proximity to the main EU buildings i.e. the EU parliament and the EU commission.

    Situated in a very pleasant, upmarket neighbourhood with plenty of bars and resturants. Not too many shops but it is a 10 to 15 minute walk to Avenue Louise which is a bit like Oxford Street in London.

    Close to the Brussels-Luxembourg rail station (3 minute walk) which has a bus link to Brussels main airport.

    The historic Grand Place (main tourist area) is a picturesque 20-25 minute walk (passing downhill through the exclusive Pl. Royale district) or 10 minutes walking & metro combined.

    The nearest Metro staion is Troone and this is 3 to 4 stops (changing to line 1A at Arts-Loi) to the stations closest to the Grand Place i.e. Gare Centrale or De Brouckyere.

    Directions: In the 'EU quarter' right next door to the EU parliament building. 5 mins walk from Troone metro station (on line 2 of the Metro system).

Excellent hotel for a weekend break

by TripAdvisor Member twitchEssex

We have just returned from a weekend break in the Radisson SAS EU Hotel in Brussels and cannot recommend it highly enough.

The hotel is less than a year old and all facilities still retain that new feel and appearance. The hotel is spotless too.

As our booking was a last minute one, we upgraded to a business class room. Check-in was hassle free and the staff very helpful, even giving us a map of the local area without being asked for one. The room itself was far bigger than we expected and the bathroom on its own was almost as big as some other rooms we have stayed in!

Our room rate included breakfast and I have to say the choice was superb. Everything from bread,pastries, hot breakfast, pancakes etc was available in abundance.

As other reviewers have said, the hotel is about 20 minutes from the city centre and the local area is very quiet at weekends. However, we found a great restaurant on Friday night - Quartier Leopold, in Place du Luxembourg only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. This restaurant is closed on Saturdays but even so we found another good one just on the edge of the Place.

If you don't mind being away from the hustle of the city centre - and I have to say it was nice to get away from the crowds, even in March, this is a great hotel to stay at. If you are walking to the hotel, go via the Royal Palace and Tronestraat - it is a far nicer walk, and no further, than the direct route listedo n the hotel website route finder.

If I was to make one criticism, it was that there was little atmosphere in the hotel itself but this was probably due to the fact that it was a quiet weekend in the European Quarter.

pleasant stay at the radison!

by TripAdvisor Member joanna_c_c

It is funny how people have such extremely different views and experiences of the same hotel and staff during the same period of time... we, like "victoria" stayed over new year, for 3 nights and had absolutely no probs. Perhaps its the way you speak to the staff when they are conversing wth you in their second or perhaps third language?? i dont know. But to us they were very helpfull and gave us directions to areas to eat on our first night, explained the busses and gave us detailed directions when we were off on a footbal pilgramge to anderlechts stadium!
rooms... lovely and spacious with funky decor.comfy bed. fab bathrooms with big baths and showers and generally very contemporary throughout. 2 mins walk to the area where busses stop although we used to walk into the city centre area which takes about 20 mins... but if you like walking and wandering its fine. Would stay here again. very good value for money.

Best value for money in Brussels

by TripAdvisor Member hsav

I originaly booked my weekend to Brussels at the EU hotel as they offered very good deals on their website (65€ per night) but I didn't know what to expect. Then, when I came there, I was particulary surprised by the quality of the room: fairly big, really modern and fashionable, with flat screen TV, free internet and even a trouser press hiden in the wardrobe. The overall hotel is actually very new and clean, it has a fitness, sauna and the restaurant is also a real bargain with very friendly staff. Though, It's true that the location is not best if you have nothing to do in the european area, but if you know brussels a little, It shouldn't be a issue: lots of busses are passing by and as I my predecessor said, the reception staff is very helpful for direction matters. I used to stay at the Hilton before, but I would definitely recommend the Radisson instead!

Modern and good sized rooms

by TripAdvisor Member Kikouz

After missing my last train, I decided to stay for an improvised night in Brussel. This hotel is near to the Brussel-Luxembourg train station. Since it was the week end and a kind of "last minute" booking, I've paid only 79€.

First impression on the room: really big and modern. Something like 25 sqm. The lay out of the room is not the classical (i.e. the small corridor with the bathroom and then your bed). You enter directly in a big open space with a real desk and the bed. The bath room is on another room wich does not reduce the size of the first one. It has a shower and a separate bath. The tone are soft and stylish. Flat sreen. Many amenties are provided. From the choice of three flavour soap, iron, till corkscrew, wine glasses and umbrella.

You can ask for a free late chek out (till 3pm)
the break fast is 25€
There is a free acces to a medium sized fitness room and a sauna.
This hotel is really near the city center and is well provided with bus and metro.

Great value hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Rockside17

Last Saturday night I stayed again at this hotel with my family.

The whole experience was fabulous!

We had a very friendly and cheerful reception even though we arrived at 10.00 pm. The rooms were excellent and spacious, beautifully designed, well equipped and spotlessly clean.

But above all, the staff could not do enough to meet our every need.

We stayed at the special weekend rate of 90 euros per room including breakfast which was delicious and included a vast choice.

Incredible value and just a 10 euro taxi journey to the Gare du Midi and the Eurostar or Thallys.

Wonderful Stay at Radisson EU Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Elle77

We've just returned from a weekend stay at this hotel and had such a great experience that we have to recommend it to everyone! The staff were very nice and accomodating, particularly Ms Farah and Karen who very graciously granted our request for an early check-in and late check out, respectively. The hotel was very clean and spacious , the beds restful, the ambiance very relaxing for a short break . Well done, Radisson EU Brussels !!! Thank you for such a lovely stay !

Must agree...

by TripAdvisor Member sweetpea_me

Must agree with the below reviews...stayed here Easter weekend and (almost) everything was perfect. Check-in/out was easy and quick. As other reviewers have noted, the hotel is brand new so everything is in great condition. Our room was really spacious and modern with a really nice, big bathroom with seperate shower and bath. The hotel is in the EU district of Brussels, which is very quiet at weekends but this shouldn't put visitors off - a taxi into the city centre costs under €10 and metro is approx. 7 mins walk away. The city centre is also within walking distance, I think it took us approx. 20-25 mins. The only slight drawback to the hotel was the bar - on the Saturday night we returned to the hotel relatively early (approx. 12.30am) and went to the bar for a nightcap. We were told however that the bar shuts at midnight, which we found very surprising given that it's a hotel bar. It's not a big deal of course but longer opening hours would just out the icing on the cake. Otherwise, perfect hotel for a weekend break, will definitey stay here again the next time I'm in Brussels.

Can't complain, would defintely return.

by TripAdvisor Member sampsos99

If like us you are used to sleeping in a large bed then I hope the non standard rooms have beds bigger than 140 cm. Plus you get a quilt that is not even as wide as the bed, ok so we got another one but it took two attempts.
I liked this hotel a lot and would definitely return. I especially like the clean design and colours of the rooms. Our bathroom was spacious with separate bath and shower. Iron and ironing board for the business traveller. Hairdryer for the ladies.
Breakfast ridiculously expensive (25€) for the non business traveller. Alternative is Tout Bon on Luxemburg Square, where you can get various breakfasts for a fraction the price, sit in the morning sun overlooking the square and the EU Parlament buildings.
Hotel is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride from the old town.

Some useful info:
Bus 60 takes you from the Luxemburg Square to the Central Station or 95 to Grand Sablon, both good starting points.

Dont's: Avoid the fish restaurants in the street off of Hubertus Passage, they are mostly overpriced without the quality to match. Make sure the taxi drivers turn on their meters. What was a 6 euro journey turned into 12 euros and a hefty discussion at the Hotel Reception (we won).

Do's: Take coffee and cake in the conservstory of the Le Pain Quotidien on the Grand Sablon Square and take a look or even buy at the many upmarket chocolate shops. Stroll around getting a feel of the city and its architecture. Use the bus system as its cheap and efficient.
