  • Excellent English-language Bookstore. A little expensive, as everything in Brussels. A wide range of pereodiki, stationery and literature. There are promotions, give coupons.

  • Lots of books for book lovers. If you cannot find what you need - they will order it for you. Also newspapers, DVDs, etc. 
  • I don't speak English very well... Anyway, I'm not all bilingual, but I love books, fine books and bookstores of all kinds. Discover and visit such places is a real pleasure and Waterstone's has not made an exception. Located on the boulevard Adolphe Max, it takes to deviate a bit from the Center and the main boulevards to discover this Anglo-Saxon institution. This library extends over two floors and offers a wide range of books. On the ground floor, is mainly novels (classic, science-fictions, etc.), as well as some magazines, some gadgets and other delicacies "So English". The floor can be reached easily thanks to a large spiral staircase that gives a certain charm to the scene. In this floor is a youth section, as well as documentaries with various themes (cooking, photography, art, political, languages...) I find the price a tad excessive, despite their size and volume compared to any other English-language competitor. Their works have an average price between 13 to 25 euros, often depending on the book. However, I have seen that a book that interested me was more expensive 5 euros, compared to other institutions offering the same title. The reception of the bookseller (all in English) is good and discreet and shelving as, they have a few chairs spread here and there in order to allow the customer to browse the books of interest. All giving the hotel a welcoming, warm and cosy setting.

  • Classic English bookstore in central Brussels, just the right size. The cards with comments from the staff on books they liked are a nice personal touch.
  • Great bookstore with a great selection of both books and magazines. Super friendly and helpful staff and great customer service when order books.
  • Great staff & large collection of books from business to history to cooking books.
  • Excellent bookshop; great choice, and -rare in Belgium- customer friendly opening times.
  • Excellent bookstore. Infinite choice. Very professional and polite staff, and the most of them are native English speakers. Best English book-store in Brussels!
