Waterstones - Review
This is Brussels’ favourite English bookstore and also the first. Two floors of book on every category are present here. The fiction is on the first floor, everything else on the second. The ambience is attractive and lively. The staff is friendly.

Waterstones, Brussels Reviews
A good collection of books and good sales when i was there (discount on buying a second book). Almost always i find something wonderful there :)
Nice unique place in Brussels. Very high prices even on imported magazines. Good press selection. Helpful staff -- even if I regret the time when the staff was exclusively British (now it's mostly Flemish people speaking "correct" English, like most of Brussels).
English language bookstore. If you want to buy books in a brick store that s the place to go. From children's books to study books . Literature to science or politics they have it . And if they don't they order it for you. They also have magazines and gifts.
I love Waterstone's but this branch is very poorly managed. The staff are either indifferent, listless or bordering on rude. The selection is good, but the prices are bordering on hilarious. Paperbacks are hitting 15/16 euros or so when the exchange rate would put them closer to 10. Hardbacks are often 30 euros, it's an absolute travesty. Real shame for such a good bookseller in Britain. Go to Fnac's English book section if you want to buy English books in Brussels.
If you have lived in the UK, you already know about this book shop, if not you need to visit. Full of English books at a very convenient price and very good offers. Besides they have the officials books for the European Schools.
