Expert reviews of cheap hotels in Brussels

Welcome to EuroCheapo’s guide to cheap hotels in Brussels and throughout Europe.

Our editors regularly visit, inspect and review affordable hotels, B&Bs and hostels, looking for the best deals in town. Those that we recommend (our “Editor’s Picks”) are all central, clean and cheap (well, for Brussels, that is!).

As the head of the European Union, the city is filled with bureaucrats, business travelers and other be-suited folks, the likes of which can drive hotel rates sky-high. However, this is precisely the kind of challenge that we love—and we’re ready to show you how to bank on affordable travel to Brussels.

Les Bluets, Brussels

The three-star Les Bluets Hotel is more of a friendly guesthouse than it is a hotel. With its rustic charm, amiable proprietor and floral prints, Les Bluets is an ideal hotel for vacationers looking for a piece of old European charm. (It’s kind of like staying with the Belgian aunt you never had.)

Max Hotel, Brussels

The Max Hotel, situated on a busy shopping street in central Brussels, is a cool, modern and unapologetically basic budget hotel. Though technically a one-star hotel (quote the Web site: “who cares?”), its uncluttered design easily exceeds those of most two- and three-star establishments. It’s also super-clean and comfortable—not to mention conveniently located.
