I've been to Brussels on five occasions now and i stayed at the Marriott Brussels in August 2008 on my last visit. This hotel is absolutely superb. Check-In was easy and pleasant, the room was of a reasonable size for a City Centre Hotel, the Bathroom immaculate and the bed very, very comfy. The location of the hotel simply could not be better, just 200 yds max from Grand Place and only 50yds from the Bourse (Stock Exchange). I would have gladly given this hotel 10/10 had there been a little more in the way of English Spoken TV programmes in the room. Also, a mention for the Business Centre, Cleaners and Bar Tender... First Class and thank you !!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Marriott Brussels Hotel

Little to fault

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from a weekend at the Brussels Marriott. The location is very central (easy walk from the main railway station and two minutes from the Grand Place). It's on the edge of a less salubrious area and half of the ground floor of the building is a McDonalds but it is near the trendiest and most lively area for going out at night (St Gery).

The hotel is a typical Marriott, very comfortable with excellent bed but decor a little bit bland and lacking in individuality. Excellent staff, friendly and efficient which is not always the case in Brussels hotels.

As I only paid 103 euros for bed and breakfast for two people, I thought the value for money was excellent. This was from Marriott's own website so no prepayment was required.

I would definitely stay there again as the proximity to the best of Brussel's nightlife and the excellent price are hard to beat.

As good as it gets.....

We had a 2 night stay in the Marriott this last weekend and were suitably impressed by the quality of the hotel.
The location is fantastic, literally up the escalator from the Bourse metro stop and a minute walk from there. I suppose the only downside to the location is that there is a McDonalds underneath the hotel but that really is a minor niggle. At this location you are 3mins from Grand Place (amazing), 5mins from Mannekin Pis (ok) and 10mins from just about everything else. The metro is fast and efficient in case you want to explore the Heysel area with the Atomium (great) and Mini Europe (pleasantly surprised).
As for the hotel, it really is up there with the best I have stayed in. We didn't notice the small rooms (as posted below) ours was well above average size with a king and sofa bed. There was an iron and board, hairdryer, mini bar and plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom really stood out, it was massive and very clean. Probably the best I have seen on my travels.
The reception area is lovely and the staff very knowledgable. They even allowed us to check in at 10am in the morning, which is great considering check in time is normally 3pm.
Our rate £55 per night included a sublime buffet breakfast which was top notch as well.
It was very quiet in the hotel as expected, I would say occupancy must have been below 50% but of course I might have just missed people!!!
Brussels was nice, and very accesible from the UK on the Eurostar. If you are going I would certainly consider staying at the Marriott, you won't be disappointed at all.

Excellent in Every Respect

from A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent location, excellent staff, excellent price.
I have stayed at a few superior hotels over the years and few meet the extremely high standards of the Brussels Marriot. The bed linen, towels, etc are changed every day. The quality of the food is first class. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. A week end stay of 3 nights including breakfast for 2 persons cost 95 euros per night.
Who else in a 5 star hotel can beat that. From now on this hotel is my benchmark.

Fantastic

from MaxUK
I totally agree with all the other reviews; this hotel is fantastic in all respects.

The staff in all areas of the hotel, from reception, restaurant, housekeeping etc were friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

I was lucky to be have a room on the executive floor which meant unlimited use of the gym and executive lounge. The lounge was a great place to relax enjoy some drinks and high quality snacks (non of that mixed peanut stuff!).

The rooms were clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated.

The hotel is well located in the centre of town with easy access to everywhere.

I got a special rate of €103 which included breakfast.

A taxi from Brussels National airport to the hotel costs nearly €40 but if you are travelling by train it will only cost about €10 from Garde de Midi.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

PS - The Renaissance Brussels hotel whhich is part of the Marriott group, is just as good, but is situated in the business area and therefore not as convenient for sightseeing as the Marriott. However, everything else that I have said about the Marriott applies to the Renaissance.

Excellent!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Service was wonderful. The room was comfortable, clean, and large. The bathroom exceptional. Very close to the Grand Place. Breakfast offered many choices of foods, the best breakfast on our entire trip!

Great European experience!!

from whitewave0
Have just returned from a great weekend at The Marriott, great service from our first moments to our last. I had lived in the area during my college years and was retruning to relive some old memories and share the great capital of Brussels with my husband.. Thanks to the marriott team who where always helpful, courteous and forgiving ( my husband's french!), his experience ( and mine) were wonderful, great atmosphere, close to all the attractions, secure and friendly all at the right level.... only fault was the lack of coffee trays in the bedrooms, especially after enjoying the belgian beers... will definitely return this year.

Location and Luxury

from travellerfromatown
Excellent location, right near the Bourse and the Grand Place. Don't know why you'd stay in any other location, since that is where everything is happening! We got a weekend rate of 99 Euros, which after staying in Paris for much more, made the Marriott seem like a dream. Spacious room, nicely decorated, with a normal-sized television, great lighting, excellent curtains that shut out the light, good bathroom with a real blowdryer and shower curtain. Safe and mini bar and PLENTY of storage for clothing. The public spaces were nice, and the bar had normal prices, not outlandish. The only complaint was that breakfast was so expensive, and we stupidly thought it was included because it didn't get posted to our bill (which you could view on the tv) until the very end.

t find any fault

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed at quite a few hotels in Europe in the last few years. All hotels and roads in European cities are not as large as North America. This is a fact, not a fault. The rooms were tastefully decorated, and the bed was the most confortable I have slept in 5 years. The very high ceilings and large TV all helped.

What made this hotel fantastic was the location. Its walking distance from anything you could want to do or see in Brussels. It can be a bit dodgy, but that is to be expected downtown in any major city. There has to be 50 restaurants within a 5 minute walk. (the seafood is exceptional in Brussels by the way)

Would return in a heartbeat!

Spent, unfortunately, only one evening here.
Outstanding location, two blocks from the Grand Plac. In excess of 50 restaurants off Grand Plac, of every size and description. Concierge most helpful; rooms large and airy. Got an excellent rate on the web, including a fine buffet breakfast.
Spent the next night at the Hyatt Regency in a residential district. Thought the Hyatt would be equal to the Marriott; the Hyatt shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence. Our Hyatt experience was DISMAL.

EXCELLENT

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for a weekend and it was brilliant. Rooms were large and well presented. Breakfasts were superb. Staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Location very good. We would definitely recommend this hotel and will return again.

Top Local Tips for Brussels

Miscellaneous Info I studied the journey from Gare du Midi to my hotel, but somehow ended up on the wrong tram and in an unsafe area when i arrived. I found my way out and before it got dark, and I'm still not sure what went wrong.If this happens to you, head for the spire (which is at the Grand Place). I did purchase a ticket for five journeys for €6.70, which seemed a bargain. I tried to go to Musee Horta but there was a queue out the door on a Sunday afternoon (when it's open only 14.30 to 17.00) so i took photos of the exterior and went away. It's not easy to find and is far from the Metro at Louise/Louiza. There are a number of hotels in this area, though (between the Metro at Louise and Musee Horta) that looked more to my liking. There is a village-feel to the area and you have the sense that Brusselinians (?) live and shop in this area (I walked down Charleroi toward the museum, there were NO signs.)

Bring your french vocab book for some of the smaller unique restaurants. When going to some of the less touristy bars and restaurants, the menus can sometimes be in flemish/french only.

Belgian Waffles You have to have a Belgian Waffle easily purchased at a kiosk along the way. Cheap treat.
