Transportation from Brussels airport to Renaissance Hotel

Can anyone give me information on how to get from the Brussels airport to the Renaissance Hotel? The website only give info on driving and taxis, but there must be buses and trains. Does anyone know just how to do the and the approximate cost each way? Thank you

Is this the Renaissance Hotel on Rue du Parnasse 19?

It looks like it's within walking distance from the Gare du Luxembourg train station.

Checking on Belgium Railways website, http://www.b-rail.be/main/E/
You can take the train from the airport to Gare du Luxembourgh via changing trains at Gare du Nord.

It takes just over 30 minutes and cost € 2,80 each way for 2nd class.

I don't think you need to change trains. I believe the number 12 airport express bus goes to Luxembourg station and that is within walking distance of the hotel, as yk notes. Costs about the same as the train, goes past NATO, then the EU complex. I'm in Vienna now and about to leave for Krakow, but will double check when I get back to Brussels early next week. However, a quick Google of several web sites indicates it does end at Luxembourg Station. The bus is practical and quick, with space for luggage, etc. I've taken it several times.
