Table of contents
When we go to book a family hotel in Brussels, we always pay attention to the location of the hotel, its facilities and always read very carefully what reviews have been written about the hotel. That way, you will almost always book the right children’s hotel in Brussels. In this blog, we have already done that for you and list the nicest family rooms in Brussels.
1. Ibis Styles Hotel Brussels Centre Stéphanie
First on the list of family-friendly hotels with family rooms in Brussels is the Ibis Styles Hotel Brussels Centre Stéphanie. We stayed here ourselves in Brussels and because of this we can also write an excellent review about this hotel. We drive to this hotel by car on a Saturday morning and were able to park the car in the hotel parking garage at a very reasonable price.
This family-friendly hotel in Brussels is in a nice neighborhood (Louisa) where you have plenty of nice stores and restaurants sitting in the street and around the hotel. There is also a pretty big supermarket around the corner from the hotel. A streetcar stop is right outside the door, allowing you to visit most of the sights in Brussels either on foot or by streetcar from the hotel.
We ourselves always walked from the hotel to Brussels’ Grand Place (the central square), enjoying the street art along the way and also, for example, the famous statue Manneken Pis. The only downside to this hotel is that they only have family rooms for families with only one kid.
This was obviously sufficient for us, but if you have two kids, you might want to look at the other hotels in this list. These family hotels in Brussels do all have family rooms for at least four people.
The room we had was a double room, to which the hotel had added another bed. This was a modern room with all the amenities. The hotel offers breakfast only in the morning, which is very good.
They had an extensive breakfast buffet here with lots of different options. We therefore found breakfast to be highly recommended. For lunch and dinner you can’t go to the hotel, but near the hotel there are lots of different restaurants where you can get something to eat.
