Cheap hotels in Near Gare du Nord, Brussels

The two options for exiting Gare du Nord, the city’s northern train station, afford radically different first impressions. Take the Bolivar exit, and you’ll find yourself in a garden of 1960s high rises. Take the Aarschot exit, and you’re in the shady red light district, which borders the commercial thoroughfare of the Middle Eastern communities.

This neighborhood has its share of budget hotels, as well as mid-price shopping centers and cheap eateries. The highlight is the Botanic Garden, a green oasis amidst office buildings and heavy traffic. The garden also has a famous concert venue. From Gare du Nord, the Grand Place is a 20-minute walk south.

Max Hotel, Brussels

Address Bd. Adolphe Max 107 (Near Gare du Nord)

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.
