9/10
Very high quality for a very small price

What a fantastic hotel for such a low price! Rooms are luxurious and spacious, service is great, food is excellent (the breakfast buffet is amazing!) and the hotel has a gym and pool which guests can use free of charge. The only possible negative is that the hotel is very close to the Eurpoean Parliament, so the location is a little souless even by Brussels standards. It is only a 5 minute walk to the underground and only a couple of stops from the luxury shopping on Avenue Louise. I would heartily reccommend this hotel as a place to stay in Brussels if you want very high quality for a very low price as long as you are prepared to be just outside the city centre.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Renaissance Brussels Hotel

Exellent but sometimes very expensive

from Richinger
I stay here often for business. The fitness center is GREAT for a hotel (it's a mediocre private gym that you get access to). The staff has been great - especially Laurent at the apartments. Room service serves great food. Laundry expensive even for a hotel. Sometimes, depending on the Eurocrats' event calendar, the place can get VERY expensive - it seems to be a favourite among senior European civil servants on expense accounts.
I will continue to stay here (when the rates aren't crazy).

top hotel..top rate

I would have no doubt in staying again

A good choice in Brussels

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have just spent 3 nights at the Renaissance hotel in Brussels with my partner to celebrate his birthday. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival, however the receptionist was quite young and a bit inexperienced which delayed our check in.
The room was bright, nicely furnished and with a very good bathroom. I had asked for champagne to be left in the room on arrival, and when we got there we had what we asked for.
The hotel is about 10 mins walk to the nearest metro or its also possible to take the bus to the city centre.
Its a good hotel, in a quiet area and good value for money. The only downside was the breakfast room with too many people all the time, and the food is not replaced quickly enough.

Excellent hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent hotel. Location a bit off the main sites, but still fairly convenient. Rooms were spotless and couldn't be more confortable. Pretty big for a European hotel.
Staff was very helpful when needed.

Downmarket Marriott--avoid

from Daoda
The Renaissance chain is a step down in the Marriott heirarchy and it shows. Service was poor: concierge could not give any advice on the different brands of chocolate on sale in the city; front desk wouldn't provide a loaner plug convertor (only for sale from the minibar for 5 euro); when a tour group's bus arrives, two of the three elevators in the lobby are taken over to load luggage. Room furnishings were just adequate and the room decor dreary. The hotel is located near the parliament, but the neighborhood otherwise is rundown. There have to be better hotels in Brussels.

Comfortable rooms, great fitness facilities

from lebelgo
The rooms were quite large by big European city standards, and also very quiet. It's 500 m from the nearest metro stop (Trone), but right next to the Place du Luxembourg where about 7 bus lines converge, including one which goes straight to the Airport and three which head towards the Grand' Place. The fitness facilities, pool, and hot tubs were large and immaculate, with attendants, etc. Helpful front desk staff and concierge.

What a Renaissance!

from MaxUK
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!). Note - that the executive lounge is closed on weekends.

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 €71 which included breakfast.

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

I would definitely stay here again.

Had a fantastic weekend

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was my first visit to Brussels but it won't be my last. We arrived at Brussels International Airport on a early flight on 4th June2004, decided to use public transport to get to the hotel. Found the staff at the railway station helpful they gave us good instructions on where to change for the metro and the trains were on time. Arrived early to hotel expecting to drop of luggage and check in later, staff were very friendly and gave us our room straight away. Hotel is a good 10/15 minute walk to the grand place but you need this to work off the huge breakfast. Had dinner in the restaurant food fantastic again staff efficent and pleasant. Rooms were very clean had no complaints. A lot of restaurants do close on saturdays and sundays around the hotel due to the fact it is in the business end fo Brussles, but you don't have far to walk to find really good restaurants and bistro's. Brussels is best seen on foot or from the open top buses. If you have time take the one hour train ride from central station to Bruges it is one of the most beautiful places I have been to in along time. On checking out left luggage at hotel as we had an evening flight, on collection of luggage staff could not do enough got us taxi straight away put luggage in taxi explained to the driver where we were going. Will be returning to Brussels in September and will use this hotel again.

Affordable splurge!

from lwitchel
My hotel in Brussels was my luxurious non-splurge: The Renaissance Brussels, which I got on Priceline for the same price ($60 including tax) as each of my other budget hotels that I got via other channels during my trip. This business class hotel is located one block from Brussels-Luxemburg train station, close to the European Parliament and about a 25-30 minute walk from the Grand Place. It’s a great walk in fine weather as well; the front desk mapped out a wonderful route that took in the Royal Palace and the Place du Grand Sablon. My room was large – the largest I had stayed in - and comfortable with lemon colored linen; unquestionably four star with all amenities including the marble bathroom, a huge tub and tons of bath towels. Like most other four star hotels, all incidentals are quite dear, so I didn’t use the phone, the minibar or internet access. There is space in the minibar for your own stuff, and it doesn’t have sensors. Front desk staff was helpful and there’s a huge dish of Toblerone candies waiting to greet you. There were 2-3 inexpensive restaurants on the same street (rue de Parnasse), 2 Asian and one café (Sel et Poivre, that had very reasonable menu prices) that I would have tried had there been time. I couldn’t have been happier. It was a great, luxurious spot to work, rest and decompress before my flight home.

Excellent

Top Local Tips for Brussels

Walking across the roads - Beware! When walking around Brussels, always be on the look-out for cars. This defnitely applies for when walking across roads using the pedestrian crossing, as Brussel drivers tend to ignore this and sometimes don't stop but instead swerve around you to get past. So our tip is to just be extra alert and get to know which direction cars come from, as usually one direction of cars are stopped by traffic lights, but in the other direction cars are coming towards you, yet the man has gone green telling you its safe to cross, when really most of the time it isnt.

Chinese food in brussels The rough guide to Brussels recommends O Chinoise Riz as the place to eat chinese food where the locals do. I beg to differ, bland wun tuns, horrible hoison sauce, Beef in sickly sweet sauce & duck the size of door stops. Not a chinese person in sight and rightly so, i have never seen many of these dishes even though i have travelled the far East extensively. Hopefully i will never see them again as they were simply awful! Ps The mouse by the toilets can run pretty fast!

Public transport Buy a day travel pass for the whole family for 6.70 euro to cover buses, Metro and trams
