Expert review of Sofitel Brussels Europe

Five-star chain perfectly placed and pitched for business travellers.

Run by the same chain as Sofitel Brussels Le Louise, Brussels Europe caters mainly for a business clientele. However, features like the relaxing hammam and super sexy bar — designed to help businesspeople unwind after a long day of meetings — are just as attractive to regular travellers.

Location: 

In the EU Quarter, just across the road from Parc Léopold; a seven-minute walk south of Schuman metro station.

Bedrooms: 

The clean-line rooms are decorated in russet, taupe and white. The Classic rooms are equipped with flat-screen TV, espresso machine, safe, free low-grade WiFi, L'Occitane toiletries — and luxury of luxuries, free mineral water! Superior rooms have baths. Moving up the scale, Luxury rooms include high-grade WiFi, free choccies and qualify for late checkout, a free drink at the bar and access to the executive terrace with fine views over the city. The suites have a separate living room, Hi-Fi, DVD player and very slick bathrooms.

Public areas: 

The large lobby is an elegant blend of glossy blacks, browns and muted greens, with orchids and minimalist steel-and-leather sofas. The BE restaurant and BE bar share the same room. The BE restaurant has padded walls and smart black tables, but the multicoloured under-lit bar steals most of the attention.

Eating and drinking: 

The continental breakfast costs a whopping 30 euros extra, with hot options cooked to order. The BE restaurant serves very tasty French/fusion cuisine at lunch (12pm—2.30pm) and dinner (7pm—10.30pm); the bar mixes some seriously sexy cocktails; and 24-hour room service is available.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a rather sparse gym (with free apples), a candlelit hammam (massages are available), 11 meeting rooms, and free parking.

Service: 

Concierge and reception staff were very attentive.
