Four Star Brussels hotels

Most popular areas in Brussels for 4-star hotels

The main draw for most visitors to Brussels has to be the handsome, historic core, centered around the Grand Place. Here, amid the ornate buildings, you can find 4-star hotels offering elegance and comfort in equal doses. However, if you’d prefer to stay a little way out from the throng, try Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, a vibrantly multicultural quarter, which also has its share of good hotels. Another favored place to stay is the European Quarter, which has 4-star pads close to the gleaming European Union buildings.

Top 4-star hotels in Brussels

The Hotel has a short and simple name, but the building itself is tall and unmistakable in the Brussels skyline. Here, you can relax in sleek, streamlined guestrooms decked out in stylish monochromatic colors, and relish the views of the city stretching out below you. Sandton Brussels Centre is another prime pad, just a short walk from the Grand Place, with smart rooms and a lounge where you can enjoy a cocktail while reclining on a sofa. Brussels Marriott Hotel Grand Place is another great choice, boasting 24-hour room service and minibars in the guestrooms.

Where to find the best restaurants in Brussels

Restaurants can readily be found in the picturesque warren around the Grand Place. Here, you can expect to find plush brasseries with carved wooden booths and exposed beams – cozy sanctums for enjoying juicy steaks and mussels cooked in wine and garlic. Or, try Rue Saint-Boniface in the Matonge district, which is crammed with appealing places to eat, including traditional Italian restaurants serving wood-fired pizzas, Asian cuisine, and Belgian seafood eateries. Sainte-Catherine area is another place for foodies, whether you’re in the mood for whole roasted sole or unctuous Ethiopian cuisine.

The most popular things to do in Brussels

If you’ve ever been beguiled by the quietly Surreal dreamscapes of Rene Magritte, a visit to the Magritte Museum is a no-brainer. Not only does it have an exhaustive collection of the great artist’s most memorable images, where reality and fantasy are brought into beautiful collision, but it even has his more unlikely works, such as marketing billboards he had a hand in. For masterpieces from longer ago, try the Oldmasters Museum, which takes you on an artistic odyssey from the 15th to the 18th centuries, with paintings by the likes of Hieronymus Bosch, Rubens, and van Dyck. Afterwards, take a wander through the Grand Plaza, which is the historic centerpiece of the city, overlooked on all sides by Baroque guildhalls bedecked with ornate gables. The literal standout is the towering Town Hall, piecing the sky and looking particularly stunning at night.

Best ways to get around Brussels

You’ll want to bring your best walking shoes when visiting Brussels, because – like other grand old European cities – it’s best seen on foot. Fortunately, it’s easily navigable and rewards casual wandering. That said, the city also has a good, wide-ranging public transport network, which includes subway lines crisscrossing the urban area, as well as the reliable trams and buses. Uber taxis also come in handy if you need to get somewhere quickly.
