Hotel Review: Hilton Brussels City
Hilton Brussels City is a four-star hotel located in the North of Brussels. Being one of the cheaper Hilton hotels in Brussels, I had fairly low expectations of Hilton Brussels City. While I didn’t find the hotel really good, it was not too bad either. You’ll see why in this extensive hotel review!
Upon arriving at Hilton Brussels City, which has a fairly good location close to Brussels Noord train station and a metro stop, I was greeted by a friendly associated who quickly checked me in.
- Classification: Four Stars
- Room Category: Deluxe Room
- Month of Stay: April
He also welcomed me as a Hilton Honors Diamond desk and handed over a welcome letter as well as a drink voucher as a compensation for the property not having an Executive Lounge.
Having booked a Single Room, I got a complimentary double upgrade to a Deluxe Room on the highest floor.
Deluxe Room at Hilton Brussels City
The Deluxe Rooms at Hilton Brussels City are fairly spacious. My particular room came with a small entrance area with the bathroom straight, the separated toilet to the left and the main room to the right.
The room itself came with a wardrobe, a flat-screen television on a TV board, which also was the working desk, two armchairs next to a small table as well as a Queen Bed with two bedside tables.
The décor was neither extremely modern nor outdated, but just fine. The Deluxe Room at Hilton Brussels City actually felt quite homely.
The view of the square is also fairly nice.
Yet, I found the windows to be relatively bad for a city hotel as there are some street noises even though the next street is a few dozen meters away.
Bathroom of the Deluxe Room
The Deluxe Room at Hilton Brussels City comes with a very small separated toilet and an also quite small bathroom with a sink and a shower-tub combo.
While the idea to separate the two areas is quite nice in theory, it made the bathroom even smaller than it already was.
Plus, I hate shower curtains, which made having a shower relatively uncomfortable.
The toiletries, as it is the norm for Hilton properties, were provided by Peter Thomas Roth.
Gym & Sauna at Hilton Brussels City
Hilton Brussels City comes with a nice little gym and relaxation area. The gym, while on the small side and with a relatively strange layout, comes with a fresh and welcoming design.
The relaxation area is a little oddly placed in the middle of the room, but comes with comfortable loungers.
The sauna and the steam bath can be used at any time, but need to be heated up by the guest before usage. Be aware that this can take a couple of minutes.
Nevertheless, I found the relaxation area at Hilton Brussels City to be quite nice.
Breakfast at Hilton Brussels City
In the morning, Hilton Brussels City offers breakfast in the hotels breakfast room till 11 am. The breakfast spread is okay, yet not phenomenal by any means.
There were cut fruits, cold cuts, cheeses, several sorts of bread and some hot options available. Moreover, there was a do-it-yourself waffle maker, which I found is quite a nice idea.
Other than that it is worth noting that the servers proactively offer freshly squeezed orange juice.Other than that it is worth noting that the servers proactively offer freshly squeezed orange juice.
You may also order freshly prepared egg dishes from the kitchen, which I took advantage of. While not looking very good, the omelet I ordered was actually more than just eatable!
Bottom line Hilton Brussels City
Hilton Brussels City definitely is no amazing property. Yet, the hotel is absolutely fine if you are looking for a convenient business hotel in Brussels. The rooms are fairly small with only the bathrooms not meeting the standards in my opinion.
The staff is friendly and well intentioned. The breakfast is decent and the gym and relaxation area are a nice additional touch. All in all, I wouldn’t hesitate to Hilton Brussels City if the rates keep to be equally low as they are at the moment.
