Brussels Airlines: The Loft Business Lounge Review – Brussels (BRU)
What a change from the previous Brussels Airlines facilities at Brussels International Airport! The new Loft Lounge is spectacular, airy, and has tons of amenities.
In the past, I avoided BRU due to its sub-par facilities...well not anymore!
Here’s a review of my recent visit to the lounge:
I arrived with the wave of morning flights – and there was plenty of seating for everyone.
The middle of the lounge had what I call ‘school-desk-seating.' Each person had a separate table with enough room for a laptop, snack, and mimosa! I loved this feature as many lounges today pack you into communal tables.
I also lusted after the mid-century inspired seating. All of the chairs in the lounge were cool and coordinated. With leather fronts and white backs, they looked sharp and gave the venue a mod feel!
Food & Beverage
There was plenty to eat and drink.
Breakfast featured a complete selection of cheeses, prepared meats, yogurts, eggs, and cereals. More than enough to get you started for the day!
It was five o’clock somewhere in the world when I arrived – so there was a full spread of wines and cocktails on hand. They even had draft Belgium beer selections for travelers who wanted to sample the fantastic local offerings.
I don’t have a picture of this – but the Loft Lounge has six sleeping pods in a relaxation room. Something right out of a space movie!
They were heavenly.
Each one was behind a mini-partition and felt completely private. Equipped with a blanket Brussels Airlines supplied, I snoozed for about an hour before I popped into my shower.
I loved the showers in this lounge. They were mod, spacious, and bright. The two best features: the rain nozzle and the trio of aromatic soaps to suite your mood. I emerged energized for the rest of the day!
This is a hip spot to relax and recharge between flights at Brussels International.
I love what Brussels Airlines has done with the place. They clearly invested a lot of money and it shows.
I can’t wait to my next transit at BRU!
