As we decided this trip about 10 days ago, hotels in a good central location did not have room to suit the conditions. I am looking for a flooring room with a kitchenette under the first condition and I can walk to sightseeing spots and there are several supermarkets and restaurants near the hotel that seems to be good and the entry by car So I found this here with a parking lot. I confirmed the review on the reservation site and it seems that there is no bad place, so I decided that the accommodation fee is not so expensive. 【Official website】 Citadines Saint Catherine Brussels

The bedroom had a double bed, a TV, a heater and a fan.
The bed was comfortable with a solid spring. Since there are about 70 cm in height, it was necessary to put a sofa cushion for when the child fell. The cushion to become a pillow is too soft and does not work much.

Citadines Saint Catherine Brussels Bathroom
There was a shelf where a bathtub with a shower, a sink and a towel etc was placed.
Since the bathtub was half the glass instead of the shower curtain, I was careful not to splash water. The water pressure of the shower was not as strong as Japan, and I felt it would take time to shed. However, it was suddenly cold water or unstable when it was still running.
Amenity was included in the washbasin and a hairdryer was included in the drawer.
Towel amenity for the number of people on the shelf

There was this courtyard in the center of the building of three hotel.
This area with pebbles was a feel for dog walking and for smokers.
Smokers are here.
Breakfast at Citadines Saint Catherine Brussels Hotel
There was no restaurant in the hotel, but there was a buffet style breakfast service. The lobby in the morning smells delicious. I did not get too crowded even at 8 o’clock and 9 o’clock, so I felt that I could sit down calmly.
I think that it is a light breakfast common sense rather than a full breakfast.
You can also choose breads.
Sausage and ham
Also grinding coffee. It was 14 euros per meal.
Citadines Saint Catherine Brussels Hotel surroundings Environment and shopping
Sometimes called an apartment hotel, it was saved when there was a supermarket that could do shopping. Several shops are lined up to surround Sainte-Catherine square in front of the hotel.
There was a supermarket of organic specialty shop called Farm so I was able to purchase breakfast there.
Bakery, dairy products, vegetables etc. All organic
Because there is a DELI corner, you can also choose ham, cheese, quiche and sandwiches.
There are several other restaurants, and you can also eat at a restaurant near the hotel after sightseeing. There was also a homeless who squirrel garbage in the plaza, but there were also guards, but there were local people walking with their children, some tourists pulled suitcases, so if you are keenly keenly mindful, He did not look bad.
Citadines Saint Catherine How to get to and from the airport to Brussels Airport?
There is no hotel shuttle so taxis are convenient from the airport. Public transportation is troublesome as I need to change tram and metro. Because we went by car we needed parking lot.
The hotel has its own parking lot. However, we could not use it at this time. I used a parking lot called Q-PARK nearby. Access to sightseeing spot, I think whether walking will be the main. It is less than 10 minutes on foot from the hotel to the Grand Place which is the center, and from there it was easy to go to the shopping mall and each sightseeing spot. Of course buses and trams were running, but I did not use it because it was at a distance that I could walk around enough.

The reception staff, the people who passed each other gave a greeting properly, and the elevator was a polite response to give priority to the guests. I was spoken to in French, but I can speak English. I could not communicate in Japanese.

I felt that there are many Chinese in general, but I also saw Japanese and white people. Most seem to be popular with families with small children. There were businessmen and elderly couple who stayed for a long time, so we felt that the customer base was various. There seemed to be not much couple.
Citadines Saint Catherine Brussels Summary
It was nice to have this hotel. Apartment type hotel with kitchen to travel in small city of Brussels was very convenient. For small children, it is helpful to wash the dishes with you in the kitchen. We purchased food at organic supermarket, we had a light breakfast and went to sightseeing was efficient, and we also enjoyed shopping for other organic products.
Because there is a Metro station in Sainte-Catherine square in front of the hotel, we can take the metro to the Royal Palace of Brussels which is the most distant tourist attraction at 3 stations. Also, it will be very lively as Christmas market is held in this square every year in the Christmas season. Because the inside of the hotel has a feeling of cleanliness, it became a satisfactory journey. It was a pity that the parking lot could not be used. It is recommended here if you choose as a hotel only for sightseeing during the day and a night off.
