In the heart of Brussels, the 5-star Le Plaza hotel welcomes you for a luxurious and kids-friendly stay, discovering the rich historical, cultural and gourmet heritage of the Belgian and European capital.
Located just a short 10-minute walk from the famous Grand Place, the Plaza Hotel offers guests a central location for discovering Brussels.
Belgium is a small country: as the crow flies, it takes only 4 hours to cross it from north to south! Staying in Brussels, central point on the map, will give you the opportunity to make many excursions, from the sea coast to the north, to the Ardennes forests to the south.
From Brussels International Airport (Zaventem), it will only take about 20 minutes to reach the Plaza by car. You can also take the train from the airport to Gare du Nord (15 minutes) and then you just have to walk 10 minutes.
A beautiful building in Art Deco style, the Plaza Hotel stands proudly in the center of Brussels. Its exterior architecture is inspired by the famous George V hotel in Paris.
Charged with history, the Plaza has seen many celebrities, such as Winston Churchill, Charles Aznavour, Brigitte Bardot, Joséphine Baker and Yves Montand.
Today owned by Baron Van Gysel, the Plaza offers a service of exceptional quality and retains its palace charm of yesteryear. The Baron, himself a father and grandfather, has understood the importance of satisfying families and he makes every effort to make them feel at home.
