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. The front desk staff was helpful and there’s a huge dish of Toblerone candies waiting to greet you.
There were two to three inexpensive restaurants on the same street (rue de Parnasse), two Asian, and one café (Sel et Poivre, which 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.

We were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful four-star hotel that had just been renovated--and it showed. Renaissance moved into the building in 2001. It was modern and luxurious in all aspects. It is located in the Quartier Leopold near the European Parliament and the Palais Royale and only a few minutes from the nearest subway stop--Troon. It was, in fact, the first luxury hotel to be located near the European Parliament.
Our room was very tastefully decorated and it was spacious and spotless. The bathroom was spacious and clean and the towels were fluffy (always a bonus with me!) The room also had all of those extra amenities such as trouser press, ironing board, hairdryer, working desk, etc.
Once again, we purchased this room using Priceline.com for just under $100 -- I think the average rate is about 200 euros per night.
We were very comfortable in this hotel and room. We had a street view which wasn't too bad considering there wasn't much of a view from anywhere in the hotel. It is in a convenient location being close to a Metro line. It is also very close to those of you who need to attend the European Parliament!
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Brussels for its quiet and very convenient location. It is really a beautiful hotel and well worth the money spent.
