Cheap & Luxury Picks: The Top Best Hotels in Brussels, Belgium

Given that I have set Belgium as my current home base, it can’t be helped that a lot of you guys are asking me about the best accommodations in Brussels, the so-called heart of Europe. And well, after hundreds of e-mails, I think that it’s high time that I simply compile it all in one place for everyone’s ease!

So whatever kind of traveler you may be — no matter if you’re into luxury or budget travel — when it’s time to think of a place to sleep, here is a list of the top best hotels in Brussels that I highly recommend!

TIP: When booking for your accommodation, I highly recommend Booking.com for two reasons. First, it’s one of the top trusted booking platforms out there. I have been using them for years and they never fail in giving me the best hotel deal! Second, unlike most other booking platforms, I love how they let you make payments only after you check out of the hotel; so payment is not made upfront and cancellations can even be done 24 hours prior to your booked date. It’s definitely perfect for travelers like me! For your convenience, I have included the relevant Booking.com links below for each hotel. Enjoy!

NOTE: Below, when I say ‘distance from the city center’, I am referring to the distance between the hotel and Brussels’ Grand Place which is somehow the center of it all.

  6. Every one of these hotels looks beautiful. I would love to visit them. I love hotels in Europe and in the UK because their management and staff take Hotel Management quite seriously. They always strive to offer beautiful accommodations and professional service for their guests. One day we will head to Europe again and Brussels will definitely be on our list, along with a few other stops.
