After 2h20 of flight, we finally arrived at the Brussels South Charleroi airport, and one of our crew members lost the key to the padlock of his hand luggage. It's time to find someone to break the padlock somehow. At the airport exit, after asking at the lost and found area, we found the police. So he asked their if they could break his padlock, …
Thank heavens for electricity and heaters in our modern world...
Woke to 3 degrees and a top temp of 7 degrees today.. a last stroll around Brugge.. breakky in a delightful local cafe, last few Xmas shops,and the last lot of photos before heading off to Brussels...or so we thought. At Brugge station was wonderful exhibit of Ice Sculptures.. in minus 6 degrees, mind you.. wasn't going to miss this winter treat.. and a treat it was.. life size ice sculptures ...
... is truly beautiful. Something interesting about Brussels is that, more than other cities, it is a clearly modernized, with many new buildings interspersed with the old. In order to maintain some unity among the old and new, they add elements to the new construction that are meant to complement the old. Our guide referred to this as Brusselization and you can see an example in the modern building that I paired with the Cathedral.
This marked the ...
... toast- we were the poor tourists this morning!
Below are some pictures of our hotel including the fabulous view from our room- NOT! I don't think this is actually a particularly great part of town. There are a lot of immigrant men loitering about looking bored and unemployed. At one point, when out looking for a restaurant, I noted that there were ...
... It has been fully restored since it's original 1958 construction (I read that the original external atom surfaces were sheathed in aluminum, but it discolored badly and was replaced with stainless steel, a little curious). Photos of celebrities from the World's Fair of 1958 are inside, and it retains this feel of the 1950's. Very worth the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFlats Veronese Brussels
Our stay at Flats Veronese was quite great. We have booked 2 studios (28 and 35 sq. meters) and 1 apartment (45 sq. meters), but I'm going to evaluate only one of them (45 sq. meters), located on the top of the building.
I'll make a small review for the following categories:
APARTMENT: The apartment was a quite spacious duplex, with kitchen, bathroom and living room and of course room ( ). There's plenty of space for 4 persons in this flat, as the couch in the living room is a comfortable sofa-bed ( ). The kitchen had a microwave, toaster, water-heater, a stove and oven! The room is upstairs and has a big window on the ceiling of the building ( ) although with strong wind, there was bad isolation and the window opened a little bit (-), not critical though.
We had a small problem with the shower (the water flush was not wide open, but concentrated in a small part of the shower), but manageable for the duration of our stay (-).
There's also cable TV and free access WiFi (SSID and password available upon arrival) ( ).
CLEANLINESS: The room, the linen, towels, bathroom and kitchenware was very clean.
BREAKFAST: No breakfast! It's a flat not a hotel room :) If you want to have breakfast, go to the supermarket and do it yourself. It's cheaper, believe me. Brussels is a very expensive city.
STAFF: No staff at all. Although you can talk to the "manager" of the reception using the room phone or using your own to call the reception. I had the need to do it, and I was well taken cared of :)
LOCATION: It's in the European Union Quarter and a 5-10 minute walk to the Schuman metro station.
AMENITIES: If I'm not mistaken or confused, Flats Veronese has "a protocol" with a nearby hotel (Hotel Chelton) that allows guest to use their pool and gym. To be confirmed locally. We haven't used it.
OVERALL: It was a great place to stay and I recommend staying here when visiting Brussels. It's also a quiet part of the city... :)
