A Good Quality Hotel by the Midi


I have never been to Europe but must plan a trip for my boss this April. He wants a 4 star hotel by the midi and I was wondering if anyone had advice?

I do sincerely appreciate your time..

Also...If we choose a hotel next to the central station, how do i find the schedule of times to travel to the midi from there? They have an early train (6am) from brussels to Einhoven..Can they hop onto the central station to reach Eindhoven...and where might i find the difference in time?

Thanks again!

There is no 4* hotel by the Gare du Midi, and it is not a nice area to stay in at all. The best bet if it is absolutely necessary would probably be the 3* Ibis, see booking.com/hotel/be/ibisgaremidi.en.html. It's just across the road from the station.

However, a better bet would be the 5* Hotel Méridien across the road from the Central station (gare centrale) from where they can also travel to Eindhoven, on the same train as they would have caught at Gare du Midi:

Dep. Bruxelles-Midi 06:15/Bruxelles-Central 06:19 arr. Eindhoven 09:00 (changing in Dordrecht)

Dep. Bruxelles-Midi 06:24/Bruxelles-Central 06:28 arr. Eindhoven 09:30 (changing in Maastricht)

(All trains to Dordrecht and Maastricht start at Midi, then call at Central then at Nord, these 3 stations in Brussels are all in a row.)

If the Méridien hotels-belgium.com/brussel-center/brussels-h… is too expensive, 4° hotels in the area are the Hotel Carrefour de l'Europe and the Hotel NH Grand Place. There are also an Ibis and a Novotel between the Méridien and the Hotel Carrefour de l'Europe.
