Great hotel with helpful and really nice staff. The room was very spacious, as well as the bathroom with large shower, both equipped in everything what you need, with gorgeous l'occitane cosmetics - that was a really nice touch. Area is not so bad - depends which side are you coming from, as from one side you have modern part...

Location in the European district is not the best you can dream of for tourism and be warned that roads might be blocked and trafic (including pedestrians) diverted by the police during head of state meetings (our case). On the other hand no security or safety issues near the hotel... Hotel provided standard Sofitel service but we had some issues....

Excellent hotel, well positioned and with very helpful staff. I like the free wireless and the hotel generally. Not cheap but well worth the expense.

First class choice for business. Modern furnishings and a good nights sleep. Perhaps a bit bland. Usual 5* prices for bar and restaurant etc! Bar syrprisingly small / quiet. Didn't bother with breakfast as a cofffe and a croissant is good enough for me and much cheapoer at one of the many local cafe's.

Booked in for one night this weekend to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Very chic hotel, rooms were spacious, well equipped and excellent deco (5 star).

Unfortunately Sofitel really havent come up to scratch. The hotel is very chic but bordering on clinical. I only booked this because i was struggling to find accommodation for the particular night in Brussells. Some people like this type of hotel but i found it souless. The hotel is also very expensive what you get, no movies no minibar etc....

The Brussels' Sofitel in the vicinity of the European Parliament and the European Commission has almost everything it takes to be a great hotel. With its spacious rooms with comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms, boutique-like lobby, and European Union Stars sanded onto nearly every glass surface in the hotel, Sofitel Europe is a really comfortable place to stay. The hotel provides...
