Brillant hotel & position

What a beautiful, elegant, well run and efficient hotel and a pleasure to stay. Everywhere sparkled, and even the staff uniforms looked smart, bright and elegant. Our rooms were of good quality, and late evening after gadding about all day and enjoying dinner in a great choice of restaurants nearby, it was terrific to come back to a lounge area that was pleasing to come back too. (Unlike the Metropole that I have written about.) We had our breakfasts in the hotel at 15 Euros and for that we had a choice of several meats, salmon, various cheeses, selection of breads, rolls, toast, eggs boiled and scrambled, pastries, croissants, yoghourts, melon, fresh fruit to peel and or chopped fruit in bowls. Choice of all teas, coffee, and fresh fruit joices. The next price is 28 Euros which includes egg, bacon etc. but with all that was on offer for 15 Euros we didn't have room for anymore food. Also a beautiful dining room to eat in. Everywhere is a pleasure to be in, even the toilets on the ground floor are sparkling and well kept and in good condition. Great valaue for a great 5 star hotel. Exactly what we expect, and our disabled friend was not charged more than us!
Rude & overpriced

I wanted to stay in Brussels again, however i have changed my mind. Before i checked out I was definitely going to return here. but during my check out we were charged an extortionate amount of money for breakfast, (£25 per person per day)my guests questioned this and were told by the rude reception staff 'what do you expect if you book on the internet'. I found this embarrassing to say the least and was not impressed by my treatment from the hotel staff. I had only recently suffered a stroke and the staff implied that I was stupid. i have had no satisfaction from my complaints to the hotel or expedia. The only rating I can give this hotel and expedia is that of 5 stars for rip off and 5 stars for their marketing ploy.
Elegant & luxurious

The staff were very friendly and the room was quiet - which is of the utmost importance to me. The hotel itself was elegant and luxurious, as was our room - although it could have used a proper cleaning up.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Meridien Hotel

le meridien

from A TripAdvisor Member
me and my wife stayed there 19 to 21 nov its a very good hotel and a great location staff were polite and helpful booked the eurostar and hotel together cost 135 pound which i thought was a great deal the room was lovely and spotless and a fair size a couple of people said the rooms were small by us standard have they stayed in rooms in new york you cant swing a cat in those.

Almost perfect

from WisetravellerUK
Two nights September 24-25 2004

I decided on the Meridien as it had consistently good reviews. As a treat for my wife, I was looking for the plushest hotel experience using hotels available as a Eurostar+hotel package from London. Every other hotel 3* and above on the Eurostar list had two or more poor reviews. To ramp up the plush experience I booked a deluxe room.

I e-mailed in advance to check on a couple of things, such as late night availability of food as we would not arrive from London until after 10pm. E-mails were answered quickly and pleasantly and gave reassurance that the service would be good.

Getting to the hotel from Eurostar was simplicity itself, a five minute ride on the excellent cross-city train from Brussels Midi to Central, and a two minute hop across the road.

On arrival I was not disappointed.
When we got to our room the view was towards the illuminated town hall tower in Grand Place, immediately romantic. The room was first-rate and very comfortable, and we ordered room service which was also excellent.

In my opinion, UK readers should disregard American reviews on this site, as my experience of the hotel was above anything ever possible in Britain.

To cap it all 10 days after coming home we received a letter thanking us for staying at the hotel and personally signed by the manager.

Good but nothing special

from MemphisMojoTraveler
By American standards, this is a mundane run-of-the-mill 4 star hotel. Everything about it was fairly comfortable and accommodating. But nothing was truly outstanding or memorable. Still, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Le Meridien Brussels.

Wonderful location

from Jacandhow
We stayed here in November for two nights. It is located right opposite the train station, which is linked to the airport and eurostar. It only took us 20 minutes to get there from the airport the cost being only 2.60 euros. The hotel is very nice, rooms not overly big but wonderful marbel bathroom, with a very nice walk in shower. The resturant was very nice, a very small, but wonderful menu. The location means that you are in the city centre within three minutes. Also very easy to get to other locations in Belgium because of the train station being so near. The only thing missing was tea and coffee in the bedroom. Will definatly stay there again.

Overall very good experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
Purchased a "Package Deal" from Priceline and stayed seven nights, August 17-24, 2004. Rooms very extremely clean and had a marble bath. High thread count bed linens, comfortable mattress and pillows. Room was a bit small by US standards. Buffet breakfast was not included in room rate and they were charging 25 Euro per person. Bar and food prices were also very expensive. Lobby and bar area was small and 'just average. Internet useage was extremely expensive. Staff was helpful and attentive, but overall not a 5 star hotel, a 4 star rating would be more in line. Furniture was only average.
Located right across from Brussels Gare Centraal and a short walk to the Grand Place.

Excellent experience

from Strady
I was there for one night. It's really modern, I noticed cure for any detail. Room was large and comfortable. We left the car, they parked it and we took it back the next morning.
It's 5 minutes walk from the Grand Place and we had a standard room at a low price. If back to Bruxelles, I'll certainly go there

Best Deal in Brussels

from celusnek
Through the LeMeriden web site, we reserved a standard city view room for the great low price of 85 Euros/night. We stayed 6 nights in August 2004. The location is ideal. Across the street from Central Station and about a 2 minute walk from the Grote Markt Square. The staff is professional and helpful. The rooms are top quality, with great linens; huge, soft towels; bathrobes; ample storage space; bright, spotless bathrooms; and best of all, daily turn down service with Galler pillow chocolates. Only complaint is the price of the breakfast, 25 Euros/person. There is no way I can pay that much for breakfast, so we ate waffles at the outdoor cafes down the street. We highly recommend the hotel (and eating all meals elsewhere!)

True Luxury

from deliajill
My stay at this hotel was a truly decadent experience. The room was rather large as well as the bathroom. I chose this city and hotel as first city after the Transatlantic journey, and I feel it was the best decision I made the whole trip (the rest of my party agreed.) We rested from the trip, and I even took a whirlpool bath in our room to unwind. Its in a perfect location in the city and the concierge was very helpful- eager to help actually. From this stay, I will now frequent Le Meridien hotels because I felt like a princess while I was there. One tip- I called their 1 800 booking line and they had a deal where if I paid the room up front, they cut me a deal for my stay and the room was quite affordable. Have fun in this magical city!

Great location but not truly a 5 star hotel

from Joe2316
This hotel's location is excellent, you are 2 minutes from the Grand Place & opposite Gare Central. So why only 3 stars? Well, I've stayed at the Conrad Brussels which, although 20 minutes walk from Grand Place, has fabulous large split level rooms as standard. Le Meridien's rooms are *much* smaller and the furnishings are cheap for a 5 star place. The lobby is mediocre and the bar is cramped and uninviting - it cannnot compare to the luxurious piano bar at the Conrad. But LM has cheap weekend rates (now you know why).
So this is a fine hotel for a weekend. It's very clean, efficient & friendly, perhaps a top 4 star place, but by no means is it 5 star luxury. Given all that, I would be pleased to stay here again at the weekend rate.

Best Bet in Brussels

from A TripAdvisor Member
Although this hotel is not as overtly luxurious as rivals such as the Conrad the combination of great location and good quality accommodation are pretty hard to beat. I have stayed twice and although the rooms are not all very large, they are beautifully and tastefully furnished (I had one on the 4th floor that had recently been refurbished). Everything is on your doorstep and the location opposite the station and 2 minutes from the Grand Place means that every minute of a weekend break can be put to good use.

Top Local Tips for Brussels

Calls and internet Don't use the hotel services, they're too expensive. There's a small place in the train station where you can make calls, use the internet, send faxes. There are also some souvenir shops with a telephone sign where you can make calls at a reasonable rate.

Cobbles For the home of the EU Brussels is surprisingly wheelchair unfriendly - expect uneven pavements and lots of cobbles - also applies to wearers of high heels.

Very nice Cuba bar with a great Vegetarian salad! Near the imposing Palais de Justice there is a lift which takes you down to a small square with a few cafe bars. Down the hill on the right their is a cuban bar which does fantastic salads including the best "salade vegetarian" in the world - ok in my girlfirends opinion. Turn right at the bottom of the hill to walk along a street with lots of interesting antigue shops, which lead you around towards the Sablon area with it's very nice chocolate and diamond stores.
