Voted as one of the best hotels in Belgium, the Sofitel Brussels Europe is located on the Jourdan square in Brussels, only a few steps away from theEuropean Parliament. Schuman metro station is just a few minutes away, with easy access to the city center of Brussels. This beautiful hotel definitely deserves its 5 star rating. It is designed by the renowned Parisian architect Philippe Capron. The reception hall is quite large and I loved the Manneke Pis” statues, very funny art work.
Check-in went smoothly, a very friendly yet professional check-in lady gave me the key to my room.
I stayed in a Deluxe room (approx. 32sqm). Nice hallway with large robe, very spacious bedroom and bathroom with separate toilet and shower. The room was absolutely gorgeous, high quality and pleasant neutral décor. There was nothing to fault. As most Sofitels do, the Sofitel Brussels Europe has the “Sofitel MyBed” in every room. It feels like sleeping on a cloud and makes you feel like you’re in heaven when you wake up the next morning J The bathroom had a tub, separate shower and Hermès toiletries. Additional features: Nespresso coffeemachine, Bose soundsystem, free wifi and bathrobes + comfortable slippers.
Then I went exploring the facilities of this beautiful hotel. The fitness area is located on the -1 floor. It is a very large and open space with good quality equipment. There even is a rainfall wall which is a nice touch! Loved it! There is no spa area, however… There is a large hammam which can be used at no additional charge until 11PM. Massages are also available. The restaurant and bar “BE Café Marché” offers an extensive menu with Belgian cuisine with modern influences. In-room dining is available as well. The business center has a Mac with printer and there are some comfy couches. Loved the decoration, very classy!
After a wonderful night (the bed truly is amazing…) we had breakfast. The buffet is outstanding, lots of fresh items, cheeses, eggs, bread, yoghurts, smoothies, pastries, etc. Again, service was top-notch! If you stay at the Sofitel Brussels Europe, be sure to check out the buffet! You will love it!
When you’re looking for a luxury hotel in Brussels, do consider the Sofitel Brussels Europe. It is a fantastic place with very comfortable rooms and amenities. Definitely one of my favorite 5 star hotels in the city!
