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
No complaints about the property, but service was consistently poor. Multiple emails attempting to adjust my reservation went unanswered. Then when I called they said they could adjust, only to discover when I arrived that they had not adjusted it. They also insisted they did not have my card on file even though I submitted all my card info to make the reservation in the first place.
My family and I loved our stay at the Steigenberger this summer. The hotel is situated in a lovely area with shops and restaurants. The room was spacious and very luxurious, comfortable and super clean. Hotel staff were amazing and always very helpful. We are coming back in December!
Very high quality, but very low score on sustainability. Due to continuous very hot bathroom heating, all towels replaced everyday (despite request to not clean), shower with very high water use, and room lighting not connected to presence in room (inserting key card).
