Hotel Reservations

EUROCONTROL has negotiated special rates with Brussels area hotels. A list of hotels is available at the “Recommended Hotels” link at the EUROCONTROL website.

From the Airport to Downtown:

Directions from the Brussels Airport (BRU) to Downtown Brussels

The distance from the airport to downtown Brussels is approximately 7.5miles (12 km). Taxis with a meter are available in front of the arrivals hall. The fare from the airport to the city centre of Brussels is €45 to 50. Licensed taxis can be recognized by the blue and yellow emblem. Travelers are advised to avoid
unlicensed taxis.
A train is available to all 3 main Brussels stations (Nord/Noord, Central/Centrale and Midi/Zuid) runs from the airport station located at the lower level (-1) of the terminal. When you get out of the arrival hall, take the lift or escalator on your right to go down to level -1. Tickets can be purchased at the train station ticket counter. If they are closed, a ticket can be bought from vending machines (they only accept Maestro cards). If boarding a train without a ticket, it can be purchased on board, but notify the attendant when getting on the train, to avoid paying a fine. Make sure you have a ticket that includes the Diabolo supplement that is required for all journeys to/from the airport.

From the Airport to EUROCONTROL:

EUROCONTROL has negotiated special fares with the Unitax airport taxi company. The set price is €16 for the journey from Zaventem Airport to EUROCONTROL or vice versa. Payment is possible by credit card or cash. Tell the driver about this arrangement before beginning your journey. Passengers at the Brussels Airport are picked up in front of the main entrance of the Sheraton Hotel (Departure Level). Contact Unitax at 02 725 25 25 when you are at the pick-up point.
