For a major European capital, Brussels is surprisingly affordable for the budget conscious traveller. Thanks to the EU having its home here, there are also a slew of business–focused moderate options, plus a number of excellent luxury properties. Hotels are largely found between the Quartier Royale and Quartier du Marais. There are also a good number next to Brussels Midi station for those arriving on international train services.
The Brussels hotels below have been grouped in three pricing categories:
Luxury (over €350)
Moderate (€150 to €350)
Cheap (up to €150)
These Brussels hotel prices are based on double occupancy of a twin or double room at standard rate, including breakfast for two and all taxes.
