Don’t expect Brussels to be an inexpensive place to stay. It can be a charming city for visitors, surprisingly empty at weekends once all the bureaucrats have left their places of work.
Holiday rentals are perfect but short term apartment rentals can be difficult to find in Brussels if you don’t know the city and fail to sort out your accommodation in advance. This is the centre for European administration, with countless multinationals and government offices and all their local employees need homes in the city. Check out our best apartments for your holiday or short term stay in Brussels and its surrounds.
Renting an apartment can be the cheapest way, as you won’t be needing to eat out in restaurants too often. McDonalds meals are fairly cheap in Brussels and waffles are the Belgian speciality snacks and you’ll be able to pick them up from catering carts throughout the city.
If you enjoy all the luxuries and conveniences offered by staying in some of the best Brussels hotels, yet your Brussels holiday budget will not stretch to this type of accommodation, you could consider checking into aparthotels or self catering apartments throughout each week and moving over to the business districts of the city for the weekend.
When all the business executives and weekly guests quit the city on Friday afternoon, some of these apart hotels offer fantastic weekend deals. You can expect these properties to provide a gym, swimming pool and possibly spa facilities, and a room for two will cost around 100 euro per night.
With the superior amenities, sometimes a full breakfast included in the apart hotel deal and possibilities for upgrades to suites, these business establishments can be a great choice for budget conscious travellers looking for the best accommodation deals for Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Brussels.
