A one night stay in this uninspiring hotel so that we could see in the New Year and experience the Christmas Market. E-mailed in advance to ask about parking, advised to turn up and someone would take my car from reception and park it for me - brilliant expectation setting - dissapointing in reality - doorman told me to park it myself and that I would need to find somebody to help me as access button on wrong side of car (RHD) - good luck with that! Check in then took 30 mins as the only person they had on reception was a trainee - again slightly tiresome as the conceirge was stood their looking on + the doorman and a porter with nothing else to do with their time.
Then the room - asked for a double bed + an extra cot bed for child of 4 - reality was 2 single beds and no child bed, with no solution to the problem offered
Bar - slow service, high cost, €10 for a shot of cointreau
Breakfast - good selection, but basically staff more interested in just getting people sat down vs any form of service or coffee provision
Checkout - by this point I was so fed up that the lack lustre and slow service failed to have any further impact
I stay in hotels most weeks and this is by far and away one of the rudest and slowest places I have ever stayed...................I wish you luck if you choose to stay here.
Directions: 5 mins walk from the Grand Place, near the shops
Radisson SAS Royal Hotel (or Blu Royal) is a nice hotel in the centre of Brussels. It's looks small from the outside, but its luxurious and big when you enter the building. The doorman open the door for you when you arrive and the bellboy follow you to your room.
Sadly I have to say that I did not really like the hotel. The reception service was kind of poor - they could not offer late check outs and they were very picky about the type of card they would accept for payment of the bill.
Good breakfast service!
Good afternoon coffee service!
Quite expensive overall; and as I write they appear to have charged my credit card twice for the pleasure of staying there. Sadly they were "....busy could I call back tomorrow?" It seems like my stay at this hotel gets worse each time I think about it.
Unique Quality: Good breakfast and afternoon coffee and hot chocolate service.
Directions: located near to the Cathedral and Main Railway Station
This hotel was incredibly comfortable. A really nice room, a very comfortable bed after being up for nearly 24 hours! We ate in the restaurant which was quiet but very nice and we drank in the Tin Tin Bar which got a bit rowdy as the conferences ended and everyone met in the bar afterwards but that was fine. Good wine, good beer and wonderful cocktails. It was pouring down outside so very pleased we didnt have to go anywhere!
As the taxi arrives, the doorman comes to open the taxi doors, askd whether we needed help, and then we march into the hotel, very pleasing lounge, the atrium very tastefully decorated.
Extremely attentive staff, very eager to talk English, even if spoken to in French.
Unique Quality: Wireless Internet for the Guests.
All the amenities of a lux hotel.
Good coffee and bathroom kits
the price in october 2007 190 euros one person, 220 euro two persons. 20 euros for breakfast
When the SAS-Radisson opened in the mid-Nineties, it was the hottest address in Brussels. The hotel is basically square-shaped with a central courtyard expanding upward all the way to the top and gives a very luminous atrium, filled with plants. Compared to the other more “historic” hotel, the sleek Scandinavian design is like a breath of fresh air… The rooms have different themes according to the floor: Oriental, Art Deco and Maritime and the Royal Club are the deluxe rooms. Nothing remarkable about them really, though. The theme is accented by some details (like a big rattan chair for the Asian room). The SAS’s best featured is its Sea Grill (excellent for those who love seafood) and the 14th century encompassed wall that was preserved when the hotel was build. Another feature of the hotel, the Bar Dessiné. A small bar located just at the entrance of the lobby where some of Belgium's most famous comic-stips artist have drawn souvenirs on the walls. Nice place for a fancy drink before, or after a meal at the sea Grill.
Unique Quality: The Sea Grill, the seafood restaurant on the groud floor, is Michelin Rated and well worth a visit.
Great location close to the Grand Place. The hotel has several themed floors... Swiss, Oriental etc.
I stayed on the Italian floor, which was interpreted as leather headboards and small round chairs...
The best hotel I've stayed in was The SAS Radisson. A very deluxe 5 star hotel in a modern style. The absolute eye-catcher is the lovely atrium in the middle of the building. Furthermore, there are 4 types of rooms: Royal Club, Scandinavian, Italian and Oriental and the staff is incredibly multilingual. I've seen front desk staff who speak over 6 languages!
