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!).
