Staying in Brussels during Brucon

This post is long overdue ... You are all waiting to hear from us which hotel will be the official conference hotel.

At this moment we have selected no hotel yet. The main reason for this is that we have learned that there are other events taking place in Brussels at the same time as Brucon. This has resulted in a price increase for hotel rooms (where Brussels is already not the cheapest city when it comes to hotels) and tough negotiations on our part to find the best deal. This will continue for a few more days so at this moment we want to suggest a few hotels that are ideally located in Brussels in several price categories.

Ideally located means that they are close to public transport to reach the conference venue and within walking (short cab drive) distance of the party location for Monday night (+close to the infamous Brussels nightlife)

Hotel Novotel off Grand Place
120, rue du Marché Aux Herbes
1000 Brussels, Belgium

Best Western Premier Carrefour De l'Europe

Hotel NH Grand Place Arenberg

Hotel La Madeleine
Rue de la Montagne 22
1000 Bruxelles, Belgium

Obviously there are more hotels in Brussels ... Any hotel near gare du midi is pretty much ok too.

If you can gather 4 or more people to stay together, you might want to look into a short-term rent appartment as well :
