"Great concept, easy to feel home"
If you are boted of the classical & standardized hotels worldwide, this could be the right hotel for you. Easy, relaxed, engaging and always in a good mood. You feel like homr as soon as you step in. Thanks to the helpful and proactive staff for a memorable stay! .....and the most important: the beds are great!!
"Wonderful location, excellent staff"
The Radisson Red, in the European Quarter of Brussels, was an excellent place to spend a week. The hotel is easy to access from the airport by train (get off at Bruxelles-Luxembourg). Easy walk to the Belgian Natural History Museum and to numerous other attractions. The staff were magnificent.
"Interesting concept, modern and clean, breakfast a disaster"
Very well located, a very daring concept with aggressive (red and black) colours, excellently equipped, very well maintained and clean. The only disappointment was breakfast. I you are holidaying, it (the breakfast arrangement) might be bearable. But if you are on a mission and your day starts early, the breakfast is an embarrassment. No buffet, you have to line up at the counter to order, your order goes through a till, the service at the till is slow; one morning there is ham and cheese, the other there are only huge strange-looking sandwiches and some pre-packaged food. If you want an omelette or scrambled eggs, you have to order and wait 10-15 minutes and they arrive on a shovel (sic!) half cold... Hipsters might find this innovative approach to breakfast service very much to their liking, but if your hotel is round the corner from the Parliament, there is a fat chance that some mainstream bureaucrats with tight schedules might show up from time to time as well.
"A culinary disaster"
Just had a business lunch there. I am not complaining often, really. But this time I will. The hotel's restaurant was one of the worse experience ever: Cold "quiche" (really cold, I mean... they even didn't try to heat it). Wet salad leaves (wet with water, I mean... not with vinaigrette). And my coffee made me thought of... former experiences in DDR, right before the wall felt down. Definitely the place to avoid !
"Nice experience but overpriced"
This is a very interesting concept, with practically no lobby but instead a pool table, some small counters, a huge tv screen with which you can take selfies etc, a hip bar and funny meeting rooms. The rooms are also hip and trendy, with bright red and white drawings on the walls and interesting furniture. For breakfast only ordering a la carte and a bit confusing to be honest. Staff was young and friendly and food was ok, although not exactly according to the menu sometimes (no chocolate flakes on dessert and whipped cream was missing also) and they forgot our beers but the second waiter quickly fixed that. Parking is 30 euros a night. Even on the 7th floor you could still hear the traffic. But: the hotel is overpriced for what is has to offer. Yes it's close to the European Parliament, but for the price you pay you would expect a little more, like free breakfast (or at least much cheaper), coffee/tea kettle in the room, a set of showercap/vanity set and bodylotion in the bathroom, a proper minibar instead of a fridge to store your own stuff and so on. Perhaps if there's a good offer I'll go again, if not I'll probably pick another hotel in the same area.
