I've stayed in two other hotels in the immediate area (the Hilton City Centre and the Crowne Plaza). I think the Thon is superior to the base room in the Hilton, but not at the standard of the Crown Plaza. It is good value for money.
Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre is a 15-minute walk from historic Grand Place, the city's central square. Guests can browse …More
For the capital of the European Union, Brussels is a mess. The building regulations are terrible, with huge holes in the pavement left unguarded and unprotected, rubble in the streets and dangerous scaffolding. Unless the city of Brussels authorities do something to make their environment less hazardous for tourists and official European Union business, I would suggest moving the HQs of the large European organisations to somewhere that takes more care over how it treats visitors.
I have to pay a city tax on top of the hotel bill. Fine, but hotel managements ought also to insist that the city uses this money to improve the environment around the hotel.

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Du Congres. We booked last minute due to a change in plans, and they were so accommodating. It was a quick and easy check-in process, which was needed considering we got there so late in the evening. Our room was spacious, cozy, and provided everything we needed. As for the location, it took us about 10-15 minutes to walk to the center of the city- not bad. After checking out at 11 am the last morning, they allowed us to keep our bags there for several hours while we went to do some last minute sight-seeing. We were so grateful for that service. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely consider booking there again in the future.

Brussels’ smallest district, Saint-Josse-ten-Noode lies north-east of the city centre, near the Botanic Gardens and the Gare du Nord. It’s a lively, densely populated neighbourhood of North African and Turkish communities with lots of young people. Fruit stalls and ethnic restaurants provide plenty of local colour. Cultural happenings take place in La Botanique, an arts centre set in a 19th-century greenhouse.
