  • 4.6 Hotel Amigo Brussels

    Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo, Brussels

    Frommers

    “If you have the money to stay here, then the Amigo is definitely the number-one place to stay in Brussels. It’s got it all: the best location in the heart of Brussels, beautifully decorated rooms that look out onto the rooftops of the Hotel de Ville, great service from a well-trained and charming staff, and great Italian food at the Ristorante Bocconi.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Brussels.

  • 4.7 Made In Louise Brussels

    Hotel Made In Louise, Brussels

    Fodors

    “A charmingly renovated 18th-century building is the setting for this exquisite, family-run boutique hotel, found deep in the fashionable Louise neighborhood. The rooms are bright and tastefully simple, decorated in either single or two-tone colors.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Brussels.

  • 4.3 Welcome Hotel Brussels

    Hotel Welcome, Brussels

    Frommers

    “Each of the rooms is inspired by a different destination that the owners, Michel and Sophie Smeeters, have visited. To ‘create’ Morocco, India, Japan, China, Bali, Tibet, and other parts of the world, the very hands-on Smeeters brought back all the furnishings and luxurious fabrics, objects, and artifacts that you see in the rooms.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Brussels.

  • 4.0 Hotel Metropole Brussels

    Hôtel Métropole, Brussels

    Lonely Planet

    “Rooms at Hôtel Métropole have been redecorated in styles varying from art deco to ‘Venetian Baroque’ – slightly overcolourful for some tastes. Much of the furniture is restored from 1930s originals.”

  • 4.1 Hotel Pantone Brussels

    Hotel The Pantone, Brussels

    New York Times

    “In the trendy Saint Gilles neighborhood, the kaleidoscopic Pantone Hotel radiates bright solid colors from every surface. The 61 rooms have a 1970s bachelor-pad feel, courtesy of shag carpets, spherical chrome lamps and molded plastic bedside tables.”

    Shortlisted in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Brussels, Belgium.

  • 4.1 JAM Hotel Brussels

    JAM Hotel, Brussels

    New York Times

    “Though not in the most picturesque part of Brussels, JAM gets good grades for its stylish raw design, alluring public spaces, cheerful Italian staff, cool nearby hangouts, abundant on-demand extras and a very reasonable price tag.”

  • 4.2 Train Hostel Brussels

    Train Hostel Schaerbeek, Brussels

    The Guardian

    “This unique 200-bed hostel is next to Train World, and guests can sleep in comfy four-bed dorms, authentic couchettes in actual train compartments, or splash out for the retro luxury suite in a carriage balanced on the roof.”

  • 4.2 Hotel Augustin Brussels

    Hotel The Augustin, Brussels

    The Guardian

    “The 47 rooms of this grand 1900s mansion have just been fashionably renovated, finally offering a smart address in this fast-changing neighbourhood, perfectly situated between the multicultural Midi Station and tourist sights around the Grand Place.”

  • 4.4 B&B Vaudeville Brussels

    B&B Chambres d’Hôtes du Vaudeville, Brussels

    Lonely Planet

    “This classy B&B has an incredible location right within the gorgeous (if reverberant) Galeries St-Hubert. Delectable decor styles include African, modernist and ‘Madame Loulou’ (with 1920s nude sketches).”
