Dating back to 1908, the Crowne Plaza Brussels City Centre,\'Le Palace\' has a long and distinguished history and has been at the heart of Brussels daily life since the day it opened. Recently the guest rooms have been fully refurbished. The architect, Karin Espinosa Morel, turned to the Art Nouveau lines and curls of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) for inspiration, echoing Le Palace\'s (1908) original turn-of-the-century style. She combined this with a cool modern touch and the latest comforts such as air conditioning, a strong streaming shower, data lines, a working desk with suitable lightning. So stay in the very heart of Brussels, just a short walk from the tourist centre Grand Place and the train station. Beside the botanical gardens and close to the main shopping area, you can easily reach major exhibition centres and the European institutions.
