Where to Stay in Brussels, Belgium: Best Areas & Hotels

Nicknamed “the Capital of Europe” and “Comic City,” Brussels is one of the most significant cities in Europe, culturally, economically and politically.

Today, Brussels is a vibrant city known for its beautiful guild houses, gothic architecture and gorgeous squares. If you are looking for the best areas to stay in Brussels, you have come to the right place.

Located in the north-central part of Belgium, at the crossroads of Western Europe, Brussels is an art-filled city and a major business centre. As one of Benelux’s most populated and diverse metropolitan areas, Brussels offers visitors a wide range of attractions, from the beautiful Grand Place and Royal Museums to the striking Atomium and the Belgian Comic Strip Center. Its compact city centre neighbourhoods feature a mix of narrow streets, scenic stairways and wide boulevards flanked by striking architecture. Its position in the heart of the country and great railway connections also make Brussels an excellent base to explore the neighbouring regions of Flanders and Wallonia.

Home to the historic quarters, the City Centre is home to some of the best-rated hotels in town.

Bound by the grand boulevards built on the city’s former defensive walls, Brussels’ Pentagon contains some of the most famous attractions in the Belgian capital making it the best area to stay in BXL for tourists.

    Why is this the best area to stay in Brussels, Belgium:
  • Heart of the city
  • Grand Place
  • Impressive architecture
  • Best-connected area in Brussels
  • Best area to stay in Brussels for nightlife
  • Best luxury hotels in Brussels
  • Great for shopping
  • Museums & culture
  • Brussels’ LGBTQ+ quarter

Brussels’ Pentagon, also known in Dutch as De Vijfhoek, is the heart of Brussels. It gets its name from its pentagonal (or heart) shape.

This ancient and central area is bound by the R20 road or “small belt,” a set of grand boulevards built on the site of the city’s sixteenth-century defensive walls. 

At its heart lies the splendid Grand Place, the most recognisable public square in Brussels. Considered one of the most beautiful squares in the world, La Grand Place is known for its beautiful gothic buildings and gold-leaf-covered guild houses which sparkle under the sun. It was added in 1998 to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

As the Belgian capital’s main tourist attraction, the Grand Place has many things to see and do. Most buildings on the square now house cafes, shops and chocolatiers. The cellars of the guild house located at number 10 also house the Museum of Belgian Brewers, and it is also possible to visit the Town Hall and the nearby City Museum.

A few blocks away from Grand Place, you’ll find the famous Manneken Pis, a small fountain featuring the statue of a young boy urinating into a basin. The statue is regularly dressed up to commemorate historical or current events, and it has become one of the symbols of Brussels. Hence, it is one of those things you need to see in Brussels.

Brussels’ city centre also hosts the Royal Quarter. Home to the Royal Palace since the time of the Duchy of Brabant and later to the Parliament and Constitutional Court of Belgium, this district has long been a seat of power. Today, the area is also known for being a place of art and culture thanks to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, a cluster of six museums that includes the Oldmasters Museum, the Magritte Museum, the Fin-de-Siècle Museum, the Modern Museum, the Antoine Wiertz Museum and the Constantin Meunier Museum.

Not far, the Sablon is one of the most charming areas in Brussels. The site of the Church of Our Blessed Lady of the Sablon, this lovely area is also home to cute shops, art galleries, upscale restaurants and some of the best-rated boutique hotels in the European capital.

The Centre is the best place to stay in Brussels for sightseeing, and it’s also a great district to enjoy one of Belgium’s world-famous beers. While the Grand Place and Place de la Bourse offer a few decent cocktail bars and terraces, Sainte Catherine, located a 10-minute walk north, is the main nightlife area in Brussels. Furthermore, Quartier Saint Jacques, and particularly Rue du Marché au Charbon, is considered Brussels’ Gay Village, a vibrant and welcoming nightlife district with LGBT-oriented bars, drag cabarets, amazing restaurants and a great vibe.


Whether you’re looking for attractions, nightlife or shopping, the Centre is undoubtedly the best location for visitors to Brussels. Moreover, this district is also the best-connected area in the city. Besides being home to the Central Station, the whole Pentagon is crossed by tram, bus and metro lines.

Where to Look for Accommodation in Brussels: Useful Info

Brussels, the “capital of Europe,” is a charming place that offers travellers excellent food, fascinating art collections and thriving alternative neighbourhoods where emerging designers and bohemian artists exhibit their creations.

This Belgian city has a wide range of things to do. It is not a big city, so finding the best area to stay in Brussels is easier than in other capitals such as Madrid or Berlin.

Being a world-class political and business capital, the cost of accommodation in Brussels can be very high, although you can find exciting offers in peripheral neighbourhoods.

The best area to stay in Brussels is around Grand Place square, in the city’s old district. However, hotels here are usually quite expensive. A night in a three-star hotel in this area can set you back €90 or more.

Fortunately, many central neighbourhoods are central and still cheap, for example, Molenbeek.
