Honestly I can't fault this hotel. I'd have to be nitpicking to find things that irritate me. We booked it through hotelopia for 50 GBP a night and upon checking in we were told that breakfast and minibar were included. Absolutely smashing! The hotel looks new, modern and smells very nice all the time. The breakfast is simply awesome and I really recommend that you have your breakfast there even if it is not included. It is absolutely worth it. Every bit of care went into preparing breakfast and I never say that about any hotel. You can even get sliced lemons next to the machine that serves tea! Where do you get that? There are so many items to choose from - different types of bread, cakes, eggs (scrambled, boiled), meat stuff, different types of cereals ... list goes on.

The rooms were modern with a mini bar, strong shower, safe etc. There are no tea/coffee kettle/machines in the room. You can take your own travel kettle or help yourself to one in the lobby. The doors do not have a chain lock - be sure to hang 'do not disturb' before you go to bed. The lift operates with your room key or it won't move an inch. A bar/restaurant is also there - looked fine but we did not eat there. Wifi is not free (only 15 min with vouchers available next to the desktop next to the reception).

To get to the hotel, take the metro to Louise from Gare du Midi. Don't try and walk from the station. You'll struggle to find it since Brussels is a compact city with lots of alleys. Once you've explored it, you can easily walk from Gare Centraal. There are lots of restaurants nearby. You may be tempted to eat in the street full of restaurants close to the hotel but the quality is not very good (atmosphere may be). If you are looking for fantastic italian (pizzas, pastas etc.), turn right on the main road Chausee Charleroi (not towards louise) as you come out of the revolving hotel door and do a 15-20 min walk or take a tram to Janson to Ristorante Belvedere. Superb food there free from tourists.
If you are looking for a supermarket to buy water or any grocery, turn right (I mean a U to side road called Rue Bosquet) and keep walking till you reach a supermarket called "Proxy". If you don't want to eat breakfast at the hotel, there is a patisserie called "Paul" next to the hotel.

A very good hotel and I definitely recommend it. Note that there is another NH hotel called NH Stephanie about 3-4 min from NH Hotel Brussels City Centre.

Room Tip: All of them should be good.

Have stayed with NH hotels in a number of Belgian and Dutch cities, and always find these hotels good for business purposes. The NH CIty Centre hs a nice location and the rooms are good - clean and properly appointed. I would have rated this hotel very good (4 out of 5) if not for the following:

(1) I arrived at the hotel at 9:30 AM directly from an overnight flight from the US and asked to check in early. There were plenty of available rooms - but they charged me an additional 30 Euro for early check-in. This appears to be a new policy. The NH Brussels Stephanie - literally 150 meters down the block from NH City Centre has never charged me for early check-in - and I have done that a few times at the NH Stephanie.

(2) Free wifi in the lobby is nice in theory - but there are two annoying problems here. (a) you must use limited minute access codes that expire after 30 minutes. (b) the available bandwidth must be small, as it takes forever to download anything. I would not be surprised if they are using a dial up modem to access the internet. Felt like I was back in 1995 waiting for my old 28.8 baud line... Look around the lobby for others trying to use wifi - the more of them, the slower it will be.

It is possible to get to this hotel from the airport with baggage for a reasonable price - it you are comfortable with public transport. Take the train from the airport to Gare du Midi - then take the Metro 2 line - get off on the third stop (Louise) - and the hotel is a short walk up Avenue Louise to Chaussee de Chareroi. If you have wheels on your luggage - it is a piece of cake. Total cost is about 7.50 Euro. Much cheaper than a taxi from the airport.

Also, try the bakery next to this hotel - called Paul - good for quick breakfast for fresh breads (pain au chocolat) and coffee.

Stayed April 26-May 2, 2012--NH Brussels CC.

Hotel is ok. The room was a JR Suite--more space than regular room. Based on floor plan, there is only one JR Suite on each floor with 8 floors. JR Suite is worth the extra few Euros.

The room needs a second pane of glass at the two windows, as there is condensation (molds developing). Also, a second layer of window would cut down the street noise with sirens going on at night.

The "BIGGEST BEEF" is the computer provided by NH at the lobby that could not be used because there is a sign with " Out of Service." The paper was affixed tightly to the monitior screen and appeared to have been there for sometime. NH should either repair the computer or remove it from site if not wanting guests to use it. (That is reason for 3.5 star--poor customer service in today's hotel business.) Posting that sign on the computer shows how the hotel cares about maintenance of the hotel in general and many things such as customer service.

Hotel guest computer is needed for "leisure" guests to check for information such as weather of the next few days--planning outdoor activities.

It was observed two neighbouring hotels (starting with letters M and T) with at least two guest computers at their lobbies that were being used by their guests. NH should invest on another computer or replace the current one.

NH Staff is fine--spoke English very well.

Did not eat at hotel--no comment. In the elevators, the restaurant menu posted has pricing of dishes. Those prices were slightly higher than outside restaurants.

A neigbouring hotel and NH take bus tour groups--2 nights-- packed with poeple at the lobby.

Hotel Area (Lousia Avenue and Waterloo Blvd):

This is a nice area which has several restaurants, mini-mart market (7/11 style shop), pastry shop, and shopping.

WARNING---travel from Brussel Midi (Zuid) Train Station to NH Hotel:

Brussels is hilly.

If one has more than a carry-on luggage--it is suggested that one takes a Taxi, instead of attempting to walk to the hotel with several pieces of luggage.

Arrival: paid 12 Euros for Taxi WITHOUT taxi meter being "on."

Departure: paid 7.80 Euros for Taxi WITH taxi meter "on" + 1.20 tips = 9 Euros.

If visiting Brussels again, NH BCC would be considered becasue area is pretty good compared to Grand Palace area---noisy with many many tourists.

Hopefully there is a useful working NH computer.

Room Tip: JR Suite---nice size and corner of floor

We booked a special weekend deal from the NH Hotels website which seems to be quite good value for central Brussels. Good location in the heart of the main shopping area (2 metro stops from Midi station where Eurostar arrives) and nice size rooms to boot. We used the hotel mainly as a base to take a day trip to Ghent and then a trip out to the Atomium on Sunday before coming back to the UK. Good value.
