NewHotel Charlemagne in Brussels offers world-class facilities along with something extra that larger hotels cannot match: truly personalised service. Hans Rientjes, Managing Director for 23 years, explains, “The NewHotel Charlemagne has 68 guestrooms and suites along with two meeting rooms. This means that – unlike bigger hotels – we give our full attention to every guest and to every group here for a meeting. We have our own style, a human style. We are committed to making every one of our guests feel happy, safe and comfortable while staying with us.” A landmark hotel in Brussels for decades, the Charlemagne is now part of the French hotel group named newhotel.
The hotel is ideally located in the heart of Brussels’ European Quarter near the European Commission headquarters and Schuman Metro Station. Brussels Central Train Station is a short metro ride from the hotel, while Cinquantenaire Park is within a 10-minute walk. The city’s famed Grand Place and Manneken Pis statue are around 3.2 km from the property.
The NewHotel Charlemagne offers a choice of “city” and “club” rooms as well as “club” rooms with terraces. The rooms with terraces are located on the hotel’s ninth floor with panoramic views of the city. Every room is equipped with a work desk, a sitting area with satellite TV, a minibar, a Nespresso coffee machine which can be used for an extra charge, and fast WiFi Internet connections.
All the right amenities plus personalised service
Services at the NewHotel Charlemagne include free private parking, a rare advantage in Brussels where, at most of the city’s hotels, guests must pay high prices for parking at off-site facilities. The hotel serves a full breakfast buffet every morning, and the on-site restaurant specialises in international cuisine in a casual yet elegant setting. Room service is available around the clock, while the hotel’s bar serves snacks, cocktails, wines and a sampling of Belgian beers. Hans Rientjes points out, “The NewHotel Charlemagne is what most travellers are looking for: a nice, good hotel with the necessary amenities and excellent service.”
Hans Rientjes urges more international travellers to discover the charms of Brussels and to stay at the NewHotel Charlemagne. He says, “You must see Brussels from the inside. This city has some famous monuments, but what visitors appreciate most are the elegant Art Nouveau buildings and the very friendly welcome from locals. Brussels is also, of course, a very international city right in the heart of Europe.”
