Anyone from Belgium Reading This forum?

I am looking for hotel information in Brussels. To date, no response from my three posts. Can you suggest a nice hotel (not expensive) in the Brussels area. Am particularly interested in Atlas Hotel. Any insight? Thanks.

I'm afraid I'm not from Brussels (I live in the U.S.) but I have a website where you can go to look at a few pictures of the place we stayed last September. I also had trouble getting information regarding Brussels last fall. It seems people are talking much more about Paris and London and elsewhere than Belgium.

It's called the Hotel Mozart and is located just 2 minutes from Grand Place. If you're interested, the rate was about $85 USD per night for 2 people.

The building is 300 years old but the hotel was recently redecorated so it's pretty neat and clean. We would definately stay here again.

The website is

Good luck.

Lynn and Jef, thank you both. Since you live in Belgium Jeff, will you compare the two hotels: Mozart and Atlas. Thanks. I am contacting both.

Hi,

The Atlas hotel is situated 600 meter
NW of the 'grand place/grote markt'),
nearly 1 km away from the central train station, reasonable quiet in a
less touristic area of town. Prices
probably lower than Mozart. Atlas is
not mentioned in the trotter guide of Belgium.

A cheap alternative at 400 meter from the grote markt (in the same area)
is 'Pacific Sleeping' Dansaertstraat 57 1000 Brussel tel. 02 5118459.
Family runned pension with lavabo in the rooms (shower and toilet in the
'corridor'). Good breakfast.
Reasonable quiet. Recommended.

Hotel Mozart is 200 meter away from the grote markt (same distance to the central train station).
Address : Kaasmarkt 15a 1000 Brussels (central touristic area of town).
23 rooms with shower,
toilet, telephone and TV.
Breakfast is included in the price.
tel 02 5026661. fax nr. 02 502 7758
Cited as the most refined small hotel
from Brussels in the trotter guide of
Belgium (although the price is a bit high in my opinion).

Thanks Jef. I received quick responses from both hotels with availability. Surprisingly, the rates are the same - though Atlas Hotel quoted weekend rates for three nights. Mozart did not quote weekend rates but the price increased to $95/night (Lynn paid $85 in 9/98); both hotels include breakfast (buffet at Atlas), and both appear near Metro stops. The Atlas is a 4*, while Mozart is a 3*. In Brussels, does the star(*) rating mean the same as in the states? I will reserve one of them tomorrow, but am still undecided. Thanks for your post ... and to Lynn's suggestion too.

Hi Kathy,

The very moment you wrote your last reply I received information on the prices of the Atlas hotel (their prices used to be higher as Mozarts but seem be be equalised now).
The hotel star rating is quite universal,
I suppose.
Lower priced and recommended smaller hotel in the central (lets say Mozart) area include :

Hotel des Eperonniers Spoormakersstraat 1 1000 Brussels
tel. 02 5135366 fax : 02 5113230
Different rooms. No breakfast.

The already mentioned 'Pacific Sleeping' is not too far away neither.

The small hotel Welcome (only six rooms) Populierenstraat 5 1000 Brussels tel. 02 2199546 (500 meters
NW of the Grote Mark). Breakfast
not included in the price. Family runned. Nice and Charming.

Good luck whatever your choose.

Jef
