Hotels in Brussels, Belgium - your base to discover the city.

There’s a lot more to Belgium’s capital than just chocolate and beer. The center of European politics, Brussels is a truly diverse multi-lingual melting pot. Among the cosmopolitan city’s bustle you’ll find all the makings of a top city break. Take a stroll about the grand historic center, visit one of the many museums, or enjoy the vast range of cuisine and shopping on offer. A center of European culture, there’s always something happening in ‘The European Village’ - and it doesn’t stop when the sun goes down either.

Things to see

One of the most attractive city squares in Europe, Grand Place is a must-visit. Framed with Baroque, Gothic and Louis XIV architecture, the square is home to the town hall. Nearby, you’ll find the Manneken Pis, a small bronze statue of a boy cheekily reliving himself, which is the subject of many local legends, and often elaborately dressed up during the city’s festivities. For something a little more regal, visit the neo-classical styled Royal Palace. Free tours operate during August and September allowing visitors to step inside the palatial pad and feast their eyes upon the opulent gilt-laden interiors. For a little modernity, check out the 335ft high Atomium. The gleaming multi-sphered structure replicates a unit cell of iron crystal, magnified 165 billion times. Inside the highest sphere you’ll find a restaurant with panoramic city views. Also worth checking out is the important and imposing European Union Parliament Building, which offers tours for the politically inquisitive.

Where to stay

To be in among the city action many visitors opt for a hotel around the city center and Grand Place. Here you’ll find many of the city’s popular attractions, along with a barrage of upmarket shops, restaurants, and bars. Near to the Midi Station, the trendy Saint-Gilles borough takes on a much more bohemian vibe. Stroll along the Art Nouveau lined streets or sit around with arty types in a decadent café. The vibrant Ixelles offers something for everyone. With excellent shopping to be had around Porte de Namur, along with culture and nightlife in the upper district, it’s perfect for a livelier stay.

How to get to

For international visitors, the city’s nearest airport is Brussels Airport, known locally as Zaventem. Seven miles northeast of the city, the airport serves both European and transatlantic flights. City connections are convenient, with frequent trains from the airport to Brussels’s three main stations, including Central Station which is well-connected to the city’s metro. Journeys take between 15 and 25 minutes. For those travelling by train, Midi-Station south of the center sees arrivals from all over Europe via the Eurostar. For cheaper, but much slower travel, the Megabus service carries passengers from London, Paris, and Amsterdam.
