Travel Blogs from Brussels
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, …

... I wanted, which is always a nice thing. Just about a half hour after I got in, I got my first roommate. She is a really nice Norwegian girl named Thea. We both had absolutely no idea what to expect in Brussels, so we decided we might as well wander aimlessly together.
We first checked out the Grand Place, which is the main square in the center of the city. It is absolutely stunning. It is probably the most impressive main square ...
... Cantillon does it the old way, where many factors can affect the taste and quality. The beer has to ferment in a big, flat copper vat that is susceptible to the tempurature, dust, and moisture in the air. The fruits that are later added affect the taste depending on what kind of season it was: how much sunshine the fruit saw and how ripe they are. We did a self-guided tour and learned all this plus the fact ...
... so much we stayed for most of the late afternoon trying a new beer every round including flavours of: cherry, passion fruit, plum, honey, delirium special and grapefruit. Halfway through we realised we had also stumbled on the female version of Mannekin Pis called Jeanneke Pis (as you can imagine it is a female statue popping a squat into a pond). Enjoying the busyness and atmosphere here we wandered home feeling rather proud of our beer ...

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... :)
