Brussels might not be as obvious a choice as Rome, or as
tried-and-tested as Paris, but it exudes a quietly confident charm that
just dares you to try it out for an unforgettable European escape.
Tricky to pin down, this destination is filled with contrasts around
almost every corner. Historic yet effortlessly hip, conventional yet
completely unorthodox and sedate yet surreal – to get to know this place
you need to be right in the heart of the action.
That’s where you’ll find
Steigenberger Wiltcher’s. Centrally located
on Avenue Louise, Brussels’ famous shopping district, this TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice 2015 hotel
puts you smack-dab in the middle of the city. Wander down the
wide boulevards, browse boutique shops or take in the spectacular
medieval Grand Place before returning to your oasis for a quick workout in the fitness room or a weekend jazz concert in the award-winning Loui Bar.
Superior rooms have a traditional charm about them, with luxury fabrics, bright windows and dark wood furnishings.
of the “Best Hotel Bar in Europe” award in 2010, Loui Bar is well worth a visit. With cozy leather armchairs
and dark wood furnishings, it’s the ideal spot to sip on a rich coffee
or unwind with a classic cocktail to the sounds of live jazz every
weekend. The Breakfast Room delivers a delightful breakfast
each morning. There’s also a restaurant serving up international and
regional meals and light snacks, which you can enjoy on the outdoor
terrace when the weather allows.The hotel recently launched D-Lounge, the in-house Fumoir signed by
Davidoff, that’s already got cigar aficionados talking. The stylish
interior enables a premium smoking experience, but the real attraction
is the selection of cigars, ranging from Cuban to Nicaraguan, Dominican
and many more.
You can access the hotel’s first-floor
fitness room with your room key and work off a little Belgian chocolate
and stress on the modern cardio machines.
Staying right in the middle of the city on Avenue Louise, Brussels’ famous
shopping boulevard, you can indulge in some serious retail therapy
during your stay. The hotel has fantastic transport links and is just a
hop, skip and a jump from the Belgian capital’s main sights, like the
Grand Place. The area boasts plenty of renowned restaurants, boutique
shops and bars, and with Brussels being such a compact city, you’ll never
be more than a 15-minute metro ride away from where you want to be.
How to Get There
This was my first but not last stay at this hotel. I visit Brussels relatively often and the location, service and standard of the room was great. I can warmly recommend this hotel! The breakfast had Everything one needs and the terrasce outside the room was nice to have now when it is summer.
The Steigenberger Wiltcher’s is in the suburb of Ixelles and lies a mile to the south of the Grand Place, so it is not right in the centre. But much of what visitors want to see – such as the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts, the Musical Instruments Museum, the Horta Museum and the Cathedral – are within easy reach on foot, and certainly by tram or taxi. The Avenue Louise is a busy street, but the hotel is set well-back from it, and calm reigns within. Outdoor terraces overlook a large public shopping-court from an upper level.
We had a wonderful stay, Nice welcome by the doormen and a smooth check in. By a lady named Grazia I believe her name was? Once to the room they professionally gave us a courtesy call to check if we liked the room, and we did.
Big thanks to Stephane, concierge. He was fantastic. A value able member of Les clef D’or. Thank you for all the good recommendations.
Quick one night visit. Nice spacious room. Bit old fashioned, but clean and functioning. Got a good night sleep. The little I sampled the breakfast buffet it had a very good selection. The most interesting thing was the welcome letter in the room stating they will not allow any food delivery services to the hotel, and any delivery service will be stopped at the front door. Then there was a lengthy explanation of how good is their room service menu. First I have seen anywhere in the world.
The room was spacious, elegant and comfortable without being too excessive. The breakfast was amazing with a wide variety of everything and superlative service. The metro is 5-8 mins from the hotel which makes travel around the city easy and convenient.
