Belgium has frequently been referred to as one of the most gay-friendly countries in the world and no wander can find a few gay friendly hotels Brussels.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights in Belgium are seen as some of the most progressive in Europe and in the world. Same-sex sexual activity was legalised in 1795, with an equal age of consent, except from 1965 until 1985. After granting same-sex couples domestic partnership benefits in 2000, Belgium became the second country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage in 2003. Same-sex adoption was fully legalised in 2006 under the same terms and conditions as heterosexual adoption, and lesbian couples can access IVF as well.
The beating heart of Brussels’ gay community can be found in the Saint Jacques neighbourhood around the Grand Place! Rue du Marché au Charbon and rue des Pierres offer a great diversity of bars to have a drink, to try your luck, with friends for one night or a lifetime.
Brussels is Belgium’s capital and home to the European Union headquarters. The Grand-Place square at the heart of the city has shops and cafes inside ornate 17th-century guildhouses, and the intricate Gothic Hôtel de Ville (town hall) with a distinctive bell tower. The 19th-century Maison du Roi houses the Musée de la Ville de Bruxelles city-history museum, including costumes for the city’s famed Manneken Pis statue.

Room very spacious . It’s got a comfy bed and tea and coffee in rooms and a complimentary minibar in exec room which was restocked daily. Room has easy to use safe. Bathroom was shower only and has hairdryer. Nice toiletries inc shower gel shampoo and body lotion again restocked daily.
Tv has bbc 1& 2 And news channel.
Can’t comment on hotel restaurant didn’t eat there why would you as copious surrounding restaurants. Lots of bars and all within 5 mins walk. If you want the gay scene which is a bar cafe scene it’s about 10 mins walk.
Breakfast you squeeze your own orange and the food is buffet. Hot breakfast has bacon, sausage , egg , hash browns and beans. Cold buffet is meats cheeses and salmon . Usual pastries and cereal too. More than enough. Bit pricey but convenient . Complimentary late check out till 2pm on request. Room cleaned daily.
The hotel was about a 12 Minute Walk from the Train Station, 7 Minute Walk to Grand Place and the Largest Section of Brussels Xmas Markets was directly behind the hotel- 2 min walk. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very expensive at €20 a night Per Person so instead we dined out. Endless food options nearby. The hotel has a small swimming pool and Steam Room which we enjoyed on two evenings. There is also a Novotel right at the exit of the Brussels Central Train Station but the City Centre Novotel was very convenient for anyone travelling to Brussels for the Xmas Markets. I recommend the hotel and would stay here again.
Excellent location, only 10 mins walk from city centre and Brussels Central Station. Direct train from airport to Brussels Central only 20 mins and you can get the train to Bruges from this station also and it’s only an hour away.
Lovely, clean hotel with free safe deposit and mini fridge in room. Lots of restaurants in the area. Delirium Village and restaurants in the city centre only a short walk.
Lovely pizza restaurant NONA just round the corner and a lovely Japanese restaurant ANATA – both definitely worth a visit.
First of all I loved the location. Close to everything: to the Grand Plaza and Bourse de Bruxelles. Behind the hotel there’s another Plaza de St.Catherine with the plenty of brasseries and restaurants. Also there are some Carrefours close to the hotel.
I had the room at the 6th floor and I loved the view! The room is spacious. Everything is clean. The bathroom and wc are separated. There’s no bidet. The bed is very comfortable, only two pillows but inside the wardrobe there’re two more and another one blanket. TV, safe box, iron desk, hair dryer and shower gel etc. are included. I asked slippers at the reception, it’s complementary. But the bathrobe is only for executive room – that’s weird. And the Nespresso coffee machine also only for executive room, but the tea pot and sachets with coffee and tea are complementary as well as one small bottle of water per person per day.
The breakfast is really good. It’s the same all the days but you have a lot options to choose from. Even Belgian waffles!
There’s a spa at the -1 floor, so don’t forget to bring your swimsuit. Pool (push the button on the left side of the pool for jacuzzi), hammam (Turkish sauna), infrared shower, gym, towels, locker room – everything is ok.
There’s a baggage storage at the lobby behind the reception so if you wanna leave your luggage until your flight – it’s free of charge.
Overall very pleasant stay, would recommend this hotel as a good option and mostly because of location, cleanliness and razonable quality/price.

Very nice hotel, great staff and great location. It is about a 10 minute walk from the central station. It is a bit noisy in the night. The Grand Place is about 5-10 minute walking distance and the metro is just 2-5 minutes away. They serve breakfast in the restaurant downstairs in the morning.
This hotel is in a perfect location to explore Brussels by foot! It’s VERY small so be warned of that but the charm is great! It can be hard to find the door and our Uber drivers didn’t always know about it, but we had no problem just having them pick us up/drop us off nearby once we knew where it was. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go in terms of things in the area!
The staff was nice, the offer free water as much as you want and our room was a great size! We did request one with a shower with glass and just be warned the floors are hard wood so that can be chilly! We just wore socks! We’d definitely stay here again. The wifi was also great! Our ate included breakfast and they even called us when we didn’t come the first day to see if we wanted anything.
I stayed here before a couple of years ago and really appreciated its quirky, modern design, and a location on a fantastic, lively square in a diverse part of central Brussels. It feels a bit Shoreditch-y, if that means anything to you. I liked it enough to be happy to return when I got a very good deal for a night at short notice. I stayed in one of the ‘larger’ rooms, which is nicely fitted it with a separate bathroom area. The windows were facing into the inner ‘courtyard’ which made it quiet, but also meant there was no view. Not really a problem when you’re just sleeping there.
Rooms are nicely designed and appointed, staff are friendly, and the location is still great – if you like lively places full of ‘alternative’ types. If you’re a bit more ‘traditional’, you might want to stay somewhere else. The gripes are as have been mentioned by other reviewers – the reception is not open 24 hours, so if you’re going to arrive late, it’s best to contact them for the door code.
If you want to experience the nightlife life this is an ideal location as there a lot of bars and restaurants, mostly Asian on your doorstep. The Bourse building is approximately 3 mins away and Grand Place is about 7-10 mins away.
The hotel does not have a restaurant as such but breakfast in the morning can be taken in the bar which you can access via the reception.
The room I had was a very nice space and it had a built in safe and a fridge for you own drinks/ The bathroom was uniquely behind the bed which was separated by a brick wall and a glass partition with blinds if you want privacy but no door.
The hotel staff where most welcoming and really made the effort, always having time for a chat and ensuring our stay was enjoyable.
This is a very modern hotel and we loved it. Basically it’s one large room with a partial wall separating the bed from the shower/sink. The toilet was enclosed in a separate closet like room. The bed was comfortable. The room had a safe and mini fridge. The internet worked wonderfully and we were able to borrow the appropriate adapter.
One feature that was definitely appreciated was the elevator as many of the smaller hotels only have steep stairs. Front desk staff was extremely helpful. Parking was not included but was conveniently located two blocks away in a large parking garage with 24 hour surveillance at a cost. We didn’t have breakfast but felt the additional 14 Euro charge was very competitive. We would highly recommend the location which is excellent for exploring the Grand Place which is a must to visit especially in the evening when it is full of lights and life.

Friendly stuff, clean and comfortable room. This hostel look really modern and well designed. Edible breakfast. Perfect location close to the main attractions but on the quiet street. You can leave your baggage after check-out.
No toiletries, no towel even in private rooms, linen included only two sheets, with no pillow case. No kitchen. Walking from railway station Brussels Nord in dark was a nightmare as the nearest district is dirty, full of migrants and prostitutes.
Walk-distance from the main attractions of Brussel. Clean and comfortable rooms. Metro station and shopping-center in 300m from the hostel. I had to leave the room on 4am and I succeed without major problems. In the evening and at night there were not any parties. Not only for student, but also for adults. I recommend.
The location of this hostel is great: easily accessible to the most popular attraction in the city center and walkable to the train station yet very quiet.
The place was very clean and the beds were comfy even though the room is a bit small. It was fitted with two bookcase style storage units, a built in the wall mini fridge and a small desk.
Decent spread of buffet breakfast provided.
They didn’t provide any shampoo or soap, but we had towels. On the other hand, there is no TV in the room.
As we had a room with private bathroom, I would say that is rather hotel standard. Room and bathroom are enough big, everything clean and new. Very friendly reception 24h, you can leave your language after checking out at 11. Lobby is very conveniently organized, many spots to sit and load your phone, in connection with good wifi and good prices in the hostel bar, even waiting before flight could be nice.
The hostel place really in the central location, 2 mins away from shopping street and 5 mins from metro/ tram station but in the same time in noiseless area. For such price, I could not imagine better choice for city break stay. Dot not forget your own towels and toiletries as it is not included in hostel service (but probably you can rent for additional price). The breakfast is very basic and limited, but other hand, it just enough to start a day.

Elegant and sophisticated, the Warwick Brussels boasts the best location in Brussels. Just off the world-famous Grand Place and only 150 meters from the “Square” congress centre, this Brussels hotel is within walking distance from Brussels’ Central Station, the Antique Market on the Sablon, the Royal Covered Galleries and Brussels’ Royal Palace Gardens. Brussels’ Zaventem Airport is only a 20-minute journey away.
Friday/Saturday rates are amazing in Brussels. In so many other cities prices climb up, but in the luxury hotels in the “Capital of Europe” they deflate like soufflé! So the Royal Windsor with its 60/70’s antique decor and located a 2 minute walk from Central Station (and just opposite the Duquenoy late night gay bar) becomes welcomingly affordable with major discounting. I’ve nearly always had an upgrade to a club room and the express breakfast delivered in your room is worth the money ( full breakfast way too dear! ). Anyway well worth it for the weekend but if I’m working in Brussels during the week it is way out of my price range.
A stone throw from the Brussels train station, and three minutes walk to Grand Place. A great location within many restaurants and bars in close proximity. We had a great time staying at the Warwick. The staffs are friendly. The gym is a little tiny but nobody was there when I visited. And there is a dry sauna in the mens changing room, which was a great reprieve from the cold. We didn’t eat in the hotel restaurants as there are abundance of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner within a few minutes from the hotel.
The room was relatively small, but clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet which was of a high standard in a cosy atmosphere.
The location of the hotel could not be more perfect, just a few minutes walk from the Grand Place and all the sights of this wonderful city. We loved Brussels and will most definitely stay at this hotel when we return.
Lobby area at Warwick is nice with classy Xmas decoration and a pleasant cinnamon and glove scent. There is a small seating area, lobby bar and access to the hotel attached restaurant from the ground floor. Otherwise, there are many good restaurants, bars and convenient shops in pretty much all directions from the hotel.
As indicated, location is very good. The Central Station is 2 minutes walk from the hotel entrance. The Grand Place is just a few minutes away as well. The central location means you can return to your room and rest up a bit in between sightseeing around the city. This is nice on cold winter days like what we experienced in early December.
During our stay, we enjoyed a two-room suite. Our bedroom was very nice with a soft and comfortable bed, bedside tables and TV. Bathroom was spacious with clothing closet and a very nice shower.
The suite sitting room was very nice with sitting chair, comfortable sofa, coffee table, flat screen television, room lamps, work desk, stocked fridge, coffee & tea facility and extra closet. Rooms were a bit aged but not tired. They came with fair-sized safe, good heating and wifi service to the room. Views out the windows were decent and house cleaning was very thorough each day.
Overall, we found our stay at Warwick Brussels to be very comfortable and convenient. The suite was a nice setup and a good place to relax near the end of our trip. We were pleased with our stay and would gladly consider staying here again during future visits to Brussels.
The Warwick Hotel, Brussels, previously the Royal Windsor Hotel, has been upgraded to 5-star quality. The hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing and less than a 3-minute walk to the Grand Place and the Central Station, and close to other places of interest.
The Warwick has an onsite parking garage next to the main entrance of the hotel. Spaces are tight, especially if you have to park a large SUV or similar. I would also recommend that you arrive long before check-in time as to secure a parking space. I noticed that most days (during peak season) the parking garage was full late afternoons, so better to arrive around midday. You are charged a daily parking fee.
The hotel is not on a busy main road, so no heavy traffic passing by. The location is safe and guests can walk comfortably to main sightseeing and shopping attractions. The City Sightseeing Tours also departs a short walk from the hotel near the Central Station.
Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a comfortable sitting area in the reception and a comfortable, smallish bar area.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant that also serves lunch. There was a good selection to choose from. The breakfast area is not very large and we had to wait in long queues at times for 15-20 minutes, if not longer before we could get seated.
The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. The bathrooms are stock with small essentials such as soap, shampoo and body lotion.
Overall, our stay at the Warwick Brussels was a good choice and an ideal location for the purpose of our visit between Christmas and New Year.

Schuman metro station is not far away also for those who want to take public transport.
The hotel does have breakfast which is not included. They have some pastries and other various things for 14 euros but we decided instead to walk up the street to Paul for most of our breakfasts. They have a really good breakfast deal for 7.50 euros which gives you a coffee, orange juice, croissant and pain au chocolat. Hard to beat! The metro Schuman is also a couple of minutes walk which was quite nice to get to the city centre and is only 4 stops. Overall we enjoyed our stay here at the Aloft and our only negative comment would be that there is no pool and they don’t have a real coffee maker in the room. Just instant coffee with a kettle.Despite this we would stay again.
Nice location, it is really good if you think to be out of the city center a bit and close to a clean area. You can take the Metro to Schuman Railway Station for about 10 minutes and then 5 minutes walking to the hotel. The hotel also is right behind the European Union Commission.
Respectful and friendly staff , especially the French gentleman Mr. Eric who assisted us a lot in discovering attractions in Brussels and facilitated how to move around the city.
3- Cleanliness & Quietness:
The room and bathroom are clean; however, the wallpaper has some scratches in some areas. The room and hallways are quiet.

The bar named WXYZ has comfortable seats for those who care about drinks or just chatting.
