EBC 2015 Accomodation

Hotels in the city of Brussels are quite expensive. Therefor we’ve selected 3 types of accommodation, depending on budget and functionality. We hope this will help you to find lodging in the city center, but there are of course other options. We would like to advise you to book your rooms asap, to enjoy an early booking rate.

EBU headquarters will be at the Novotel Centre Tour Noire, where the General Assembly and the Blues Market are to happen, only 5 minutes walking from the Ancienne Belgique theatre. This recently built business hotel perfectly suits our needs. The local promoter has booked rooms here for the jury, staff, etc. Please be aware of the business model of Novotel: all the rooms are identical, for single or double use, and only equipped with one type of double bed; the hotel doesn’t provide rooms with twin beds.

The Ibis Hotel Centre Sainte Catherine is just across the street of the Novotel. The Ibis chain of hotels is well known and proposes affordable rates.

Novotel and Ibis are to be booked through their websites. The links are mentioned next to the addresses hereunder.

Finally, there’s Youth Hostel Bruegel. In particular with the participating musicians in mind, we’ve been looking hard to find a very low cost option in the center of town. Happily the management of the youth hostel is willing to support the EBC and proposes downsized prices for March 12, 13 & 14. Please find hereunder the rates and booking procedure.


All the details about the VIP arrangement for EBU members and their partner, meaning the Saturday lunch (at Novotel Centre) and Friday & Saturday dinners, will be communicated in a forthcoming newsletter.
