Aloft Brussels Schuman Hotel

Reviewed 13 November 2012

Overall, quite a nice experience. A little different, going for a lot of flair, and modern comforts. The bean bag chair was pretty interesting to see in a hotel room. When I first arrived, the bar/club downstairs was PACKED, and it looked, more like a club than a hotel. Even the reception is "trendy" being more open form, and a self-check in/out if you feel like being introverted. As a younger person, this place was great, it was close, the people were hip, and cool, and were very friendly overall. Price wise, it seemed on par with the other locations. The only things that I would comment negatively on, was the cleanliness of the toilet, and the malfunction of the curtains. I suppose someone shaved their head (hopefully) in the toilet, as the hair was all over the toilet, but I can see if you didn't lift the seat, how you would miss the giant sweater's worth of hair. Honest mistake, that was taken care of the next day. I hope they didn't think I was the one who did that. The curtains were very hip, but the rings were too small, and the curtains required delicate hands, and massaging to close the blinds. I'm not a super light sleeper, so it wasn't a big deal, but spending 15 minutes to close blinds seems excessive. Elevator was malfunctioning the first two days, but was fixed the third.

Overall, a very hip place, great location, and a overall good experience. The staff is excellent, and was able to help me with taxi's, a place for a good hair cut, and reservations to restaurants. This proved to be vital, as I don't speak French or Dutch, and the restaurant I went to did.

Room Tip: Upper levels. Club gets loud at night

Typical ALOFT hotel, which is great when you're in Harlem or Berlin, but when it's a Saturday night and you want to be in and around the bars and nightlife (what there is!) of Brussels, this place is a let down.

Having said that, the shower was good, the room was clean and the staff were helpful. You could here most of what was going on in the room upstairs (cleaning, cupboards etc), but hey, if you just want somewhere to rest your head....

Anyhow, to summarise, pretty average, not great, not awful...and for 63euros (booking.com) you can't complain too much!

I have only stayed at this hotel on two trips to brussels on business but i must say that this is one of my favourite hotels.

The hotel itself is very modern but in a funky way. I do not think it would be suitable for the more mature business traveller but as far as i am concerned i would always like to stay there on my trips to Brussels. The staff are very friendly and casually dressed which i something i am pleased to see.

The value for money for the rooms you get is very good and best of all is access to wi-fi throughout the hotel.

The hotel has a very innovative idea in having a food counter (not hot food) that is open all day and is of great help when you are in on a late flight and would like something small and quick to eat.

Am looking forward to coming back again and maybe coming back on a personal trip rather than business.

It's a nice hotel which is well kept, but its very modern and you wouldn't retire there for breakfast or dinner.
We like a relaxed atmosphere but the bar was quite night club like.
Didn't have breakfast there.
Good location
Good weekend prices.
Enjoyed the modern style of the actual bedroom.
Nice big comfy bed. Unsure about duvet as its not in a cover but sandwiched between two sheets (?!)
Would reccommend.

This hotel is a wonderful hotel. Very contemporary design and a wonderful staff. The rooms are large and well appointed. The area is a great political/business district not far from many of the cultural sights. Great place to stay and for the price I would bet it could not be beat.

Bang between the major EU buildings it is a great base for exploring Brussels. There is a regular bus that stops outside that goes to the gare du midi (eurostar) bus station too - however that is not a happy place to go as it attracts a lot of those not doing as well for themselves as those in politics.
Hotel is very clean, lovely walk-in shower/wet room.... But! It is very much in the fashion of "Ikea" clean, self service/functional.

This really is a great hotel in a really nice part of Brussels. The rooms are very large, modern and well appointed with a very comfortable bed. The other reviewers comments about the apathetic staff etc are correct, but that doesn't detract too much from the experience. I was given a room on the top floor, so the previous comments about noise from floors above may have been a factor in this allocation. Booked the room through booking.com while standing at reception to check in, and the price was exactly half of the hotel's website. The price averaged just over €50 per night which is unbelievably good value given the location and quality of the hotel. It really is located in a very nice part of Brussels. There are the EU buildings, nice parks and good restaurants close by. Schuman subway station is a short walk and only around 15 minutes from Brussels Midi station which is the Eurostar terminus.

Room Tip: Possibly the top floor is a good choice
