Fav Lodging: Vaudeville Theater Guest Rooms in Brussels

Our Fall 2017 trip to Belgium started with three nights in Brussels – an impressive city that is the hub of the European Union. I honestly had no idea how to narrow in my search for lodging at first, it was so overwhelming looking at all the options. So I decided to see if I could find something within walking distance of the Central Train Station – and boy did I hit the jackpot! Presenting to you all – I cannot recommend it enough – the Guest Rooms at the Vaudeville Theater.

The Feel: Historic but updated, these guest rooms had great character, but also plenty of space, despite being housed in an old building. I definitely expected the photos to have been framed just right to make the rooms seem bigger than they were, but I actually think it was the opposite! We could have fit a whole bed in the bathroom alone. Each room has a different theme, with unique artwork and antique furniture. Comfortable bed, nice hot shower, drinks in the mini-fridge included, Nespresso machine in every room, and a great help-yourself breakfast.

The Deal: We paid around $130/night, which given it’s location in the heart of Brussels, comfort, and delicious breakfast, seemed well worth it.

The Less-than-Ideal: The room was a bit stuffy the first night, but there was a fan and the windows opened, so we got some circulation going after that.

The Surprise: The location. I know that sounds weird, because I chose the hotel largely due to it’s location, but I didn’t fully understand just how central we were! Truly only 400 meters from the train station, and just around the corner from the most amazing Grand Place of Brussels – a golden shimmering historic square unlike anything I’d ever seen. Also – the entrance to the Vaudeville is inside one of the tourist attractions in Brussels, the beautiful glass-roofed indoor shopping mall the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Just entering the guest room was a tourist experience! We kept saying “I can’t believe we are staying here!” everytime we came and went…
