I recently stayed at Le Chatelain in Brussels. What a great experience. This unique hotel is situated a half block off Ave. Louise, and a short walk to the Toisson d’or shopping area.
The hotel is beautiful, calm, and clean. The rooms are large and very comfortable with all the amenities needed for pleasure or business travelers. I loved the breakfast buffet, with a great selection of hot items, cold cuts, cheeses, fruits and some great breads and pastries. The staff is attentive and very friendly, they really make you feel “at home” and comfortable. They go out of their way to help with sightseeing, transportation, restaurant recommendations.. anything you need. The restaurant has a very nice menu, and the chef is very creative and, i asked for something light, not on the menu, and got a fantastic open faced sandwich. Outside the hotel to the right down rue du Chatelain, there are some very nice restaurants, with outside seating (weather permitting), and on Wed a farmers market..don’t miss it. A huge networking street party follows in the evening. Go the other direction down Ave Louise to find a couple side streets lined with restaurants.
Le Chatelain, is five star quality in a boutique hotel. I go to Brussels a couple times a year, and I will definitely stay there again.
