This was not my first stay at the Hotel Catalonia in Brussels and it won't be my last. However, this time we ate our breakfast there. It isn't too far from Gare du Midi but you need local knowledge (metro line 2 or 6 to Louise, then tram 92 to Ma Campagne) brings you within 2 minutes walk of the...

Excellent hotel, but ca 25 minutes walk from the nearest metro station. Decent neighborhood. Proper breakfast. Well equipped bathroom, incl. shampoo. Possibility to make tea in the room. The quality of free Wifi connection was excellent in the room. I suggest for business travelling.

Don't get me wrong, the hotel is perfectly ok,but lacks character and charm. My wife and I stayed, but found the hotel lacked the feel of hotels in Bruge we had stayed in earlier in our trip. Has the feel of a business seminar venue.

Dear Abdulla A; Thank you very much for your review, it always helps us to improve in our service.

This is a very friendly hotel to stay in if you are in Brussels. It is located in a quiet street and a safe part of town - still very close to commercial centre. Highly recommend it. I go there almost monthly on business.

A nice clean hotel with all the amenities required--free wifi, mini bar, bathroom accessories, and nicely decorated. We found the rooms to be warm and the air condition did not have the strength to cool the rooms down, especially at night. It appeared that only the fan worked and at times warm air was blowing out.

Catalonia Brussels Hotel is situated away from the tourist / business centers of Brussels. However, Tram 92 (Ma Campagne stop) is 5-10 minutes walk down the street from the hotel, thus making all tourist sites / other tram line transfers extremely accessible (i.e., Royal Square about 20 minutes tram ride). The hotel is located in what appears to be a...

A nice , simple hotel, 3 star, but cleaner than many 4 star hotels. Very friendly and customer oriented staff! A quite location, so not a lot of disturbance of traffic (you can sleep with windows open). Little bit remote from centre, but public transportation in proximity
