Can I claim for overnight accommodation as well as compensation ?

Our return flight was changed due to Brussels airline adapting their flight schedule.  They only notified us of this as we were about to board the outbound flight 7 days before we were due to return.

It was an indirect flight Budapest to Manchester via Brussels.  The original return flights were both on the same day but the amended flight they gave us meant we had to leave a day earlier and stopover night in Brussels.

Is it possible to claim for the hotel room we had to pay for as well as requesting the compensation.

    Was Budapest-Brussels-Manchester all booked as a single ticket, or was it two unrelated bookings?

    In that case, I'd say that they ought to pick up the tab for the accommodation that wouldn't otherwise have been needed, assuming they unilaterally proposed the revised itinerary as their solution to the problem.
