The interiors are chic and colorful, with a contemporary Scandi vibe in the communal lounge area – and the bedrooms follow suit, with a smart décor and big windows overlooking Leopold Park or Jean Rey Square. There’s no scrimping in the en-suite bathrooms, which have big walk-in showers and complimentary Bliss Spa bath amenities.
There’s always something going on downstairs here, too. And whether you’re grabbing a quick sandwich at Re:Fuel or mixing and mingling to the beats at W Xyz Bar, the mood is always irresistibly laid-back and trendy. There are even a pool table and board games in the Re:Mix lounge, and if you’ve had a heavy night, you can work it off the next morning at the Re:charge fitness center. Just don’t forget to check out the city itself…

How to Get There
We had some drinks in the lobby bar, part of a small function. Nothing special at all, especially the finger food. But the atmosphere was good and the service prompt and friendly. However, I would not recommend it as such.
This is a great hotel in a great location the staff are helpful and friendly. Could not do enough to help. Great recommendations for food and things to see. The hotel is clean. Great beds and great shower pressure
The service and stay was fantastic! We arrived way before check in, at about 9:30am coming off our red eye from the states. And they were able to get us into a room by 10:30am! The rooms are well appointed and large. While the location is about 15 mins by subway/30 min walk to the city center, as a native NYer, this wasn’t a big deal at all. We used the subway often, also walked one evening back from the Grand Place and felt super safe. Overall, a lovely stay! Would 100% recommend for a future stay!
Bedrooms are excellent but breakfast and ground floor spaces unattractive and not cleaned often enough. Dirty cups opposite the main lifts at 8 a.m. still there late afternoon. Beware the Starwood 'green' option which means absolutely no service of your room, an excuse to cut staff and not 'green' in any sense I recognise.
Aloft Brussels Schuman front desk manager Pierre-Eirk gave outstanding assistance in four instances - replacement of defective shower head quickly, helping me print boarding pass, clearly explained how to use in hotel laundromat, and detailed directions to Grand Place.
