Hotels in Brussels, Belgium, and comfortable rural hotels in Belgium, hotels in Ardennes and Flanders. Hostels in Belgium for students and unusual hotels in Ghent, port hotels in Antwerp and hotels along the picturesque canals in Bruges.
Hotels in Belgium are clean, clear, beautiful and comfortable. Hotels in Belgium justify expected hotel quality in Benelux countries, the country, in which capital, Brussels is located the headquarters of the European Union. Belgium hotels offer home comfort for an average price, royal comfort for big money and a roof over your head for a modest budget.
Holidays in Belgium and â€‹â€‹Belgium tourism are closely linked with tours of the cities. In addition to Brussels in Belgium there are many rich in sights urban centers such as Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent. Accordingly, most hotels in Belgium are not seaside resorts, but city hotels.
Belgium in something is similar to Scandinavia: the same slow pace of local residents, the same regularity and propensity to count every penny. However, Scandinavian simple design of hotels in Belgium is replaced by the warm bourgeois comfort with chandeliers and plush curtains. This mainly concerns private hotels in Belgium, owned by Belgians, which are widely presented in the country. If we are talking about network hotels like Holiday Inn, Ibis, Marriott or Hilton, in Belgium there are many offers for accommodation, sometimes with local coloring, like the famous Belgian carpets in the lobby, and national dolls in shop windows, but often with a set of comfortable services and interior decorations, which are default for the hotel network of this class.
Belgium is actively exploiting its historical heritage. Castle hotels in Belgium, which are also known as Chateaus, became common for the Belgian tourism 20 years ago. Today hotels in castles of Belgium are one of the essential components of the Belgian hotel industry. But such exclusive staying in Belgium requires appropriate prices. The average room cost in the castle hotel in Belgium is around 150-250 euros per night.
The language barrier in Belgium hotels is hardly felt. Knowledge of English will save tourists from the problems in communication at reception of any hotel network in Belgium, whether it's five-star Kempinski Dukes Palace hotel in Bruges or Etap budget hotel on the outskirts of the provincial town of Rarena. Tourist can only meet Belgian hotel, where no one speaks even minimum English, somewhere in the countryside of Flanders.
Belgium is an important political center of Europe. Among the total number of hotels in Belgium, perhaps, is the highest proportion of conference hotels and congress hotels in Western Europe. The leader by the number of conference hotels is, of course, Brussels. A number of important institutions such as the headquarters of the EU, NATO and the Secretariat of the Benelux, obliges the hotel sector in Brussels meet the demand for this type of residence in Belgium. Despite such important role in the political life of the whole world, prices for hotels in Belgium are reasonable - from 30-50 euros for a standard room in a Belgian 3* hotel.
However, hotel industry in Belgium earns living not only by politics. The fact that Belgium is a popular tourist area is proved once again by the thriller "In Bruges" (2008) with Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes, which is, perhaps, the most expensive TV tourism advertising ever shoot in Belgium.
