24 Oct 2013 by GrahamSmith

Accor has opened its first Pullman hotel in Belgium.

The Pullman Brussels Midi, which is the brand’s 80th property to open worldwide, is located within the city’s recently renovated Gare du Midi railway station complex.

The 237-room hotel features a 1000 sqm of meeting space, a lounge in the lobby, a bar and restaurant.

There is also free wifi and a gym, while guests staying in Deluxe rooms and Deluxe Suites also have access to a mini-iPad.

Christophe Vanswieten, chief operating officer of Pullman Europe, said: “As the brand’s first address in Belgium, the Pullman Brussels Midi reflects Pullman’s drive to set up emblematic, upscale hotels in the world’s prime tourist destinations and major capital cities.

“We still see potential for growth in Europe in capitals like Amsterdam and Istanbul as well as in secondary cities through which we will strengthen our networks in some countries, for example the United Kingdom.”

The Pullman Brussels Midi opened its doors last week.

Earlier this year, Accor told Business Traveller about its plans for more than 150 upmarket Pullman hotels by the end of the decade, including up to ten in the UK (see news, May 28).
