There is a train station under the airport terminal that connects with the three main stations in Brussels (Brussels-Nord, Brussels-Central and Brussels-Midi). Direct trains run every 15 minutes in both directions and it takes just 17 minutes to travel into central Brussels.
The standard ticket price for travel between the airport and the ‘Brussels Zone’ is €8.50 per day. Any ticket to or from a station in the Brussels Zone entitles you to travel by train between all stations on the date of travel.
Taxi stands are located outside the arrival hall. It will cost approximately €35 to travel into the city centre.
Avoid getting into unlicensed vehicles posing as taxis which may overcharge you for their services. There is not a distinctive taxi look as all taxis are different makes and colours, so look out for the yellow and blue license emblem and the triangular stand at the top of the taxi.
Well known taxi companies include: Autolux, Unitax Brabant and Unitax.
At the airport you can buy a single or return ticket (same day return) to “any Belgian station” from one of the two ticket machines available. This ticket includes the 20 minute €5 TEC bus journey (from the airport to Charleroi-South station) and the €9.30 and 60-minute train journey to Brussels Central Station (or any other station in Brussels). Both ticket machines are outside the terminal near Door 2. You can pay using cash or credit/debit card.
The Brussels City Shuttle departs from outside the terminal at the airport and arrives at the South Station (Gare du Midi – Zuidstation) after 55 minutes of travel. Buses leave every 30 minutes. If you purchase online prior to the day of travel, the price is between €5 and €14 one-way. If you purchase a ticket at the airport (or station), the price is €17.
Taking a taxi from the airport into Brussels can cost up to €170. There are private shuttle options that, if reservations are made prior, supposedly cost between €60 and €90. The reviews are highly varied and unreliable and thus Elia is not able to make a recommendation.
The train is the quickest transportation from airport to hotel. Airport Express trains depart every 15 minutes and take only 20 minutes to reach Brussels Central Station which is just a few hundred meters from the hotel property.

From South Station, trams depart every 10 minutes and take only 10 minutes to reach De Brouckère Station or Central Station. Take Tram 3 (direction Esplanade) or Tram 4 (direction Gare du Nord) and disembark at Central Station or De Brouckère. The property is a short walk from either station.
The De Brouckère and Central Station metro stops are only a few hundred metres away. Another convenient option is the Arenberg public bus, which stops next to the hotel’s main entrance.
Taxis with a taximeter are permanently available in front of the arrivals hall. The fare from the airport to the city centre of Brussels is normally around €45. Licensed taxis can be recognised by the blue and yellow emblem. Travellers are advised to avoid unlicensed taxis!
