Saturday July 14th (Evening)
So I wanted to do a quick up date on my fancy meal …
I am writing this morning from Hotel Alma in Brussels, Belgium. We arrived yesterday afternoon via Paris. The Paris subway station was a little tricky to navigate, but we made all of our connections, which was nice.
We attended the Bayeux farmer's market yesterday morning before we left Normandy. It was very …
Today is the day i leave Ireland and head to the land of beer and chocolate (Belgium)!! I traveled through Ryanair from Dublin to Brussels. Getting to my hostel was such a pain. The most expensive traveling day i've had yet. My flight was 104euro. Then i had to take a bus that was 17euro to a bus station pretty far from my hostel. Instead of walking 30-45 mins and get lost i got a cab for 10euro....so all together that is ...
Our room has blackout curtains on them, so why was I surprised when I looked at my watch this morning and it said 8:30 am. Did we ever need to catch up on our sleep! I think the only reason we got up was so we didn't miss breakfast which ends at 10am.
Today was planned as a leisurely day.
St. Michael's Church is a one minute walk from our hotel, so we headed there first. It was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alma Hotel Brussels
Acabo de volver de unas vacaciones de 3 noches en el hotel Alma. Aunque nunca se podría describir su ubicación como pintoresca (está metido en una calle trasera), puede ser una ubicación de primera si, como nosotros, estás buscando un hotel tranquilo y con buena relación calidad-precio cerca de todos los principales puntos de interés, tiendas, restaurantes y bares del Bruselas antiguo.
Trés bon hôtel
Nous avons passé 2 nuits à l'Hôtel Alma Grand Place.
L'hôtel est bien situé dans le vieux quartier de Brussels à 50 m de la Grand Place. Rues piétonnières, trés animées.
Hôtel trés propre, style moderne, sobre, avec de belles chambres spacieuses, lits confortables. Salles de bains lumineuses, parfaitement entretenues. Personnel sympathique et efficase. Petits dejeuners copieux.
Hôtel de trés bon rapport qualité/prix.
Nous le recommendons.
Just spent five nights at the Alma Grand Palace and can definitely recommend it. The previous review covers it well. In short: very clean, conveniently central, rooms spacious, staff very helpful, breakfast relaxed and plentiful. And all at very reasonable rates. We were 77euros a room for the room and breakfasts. What more could you want? We had to ask advice about the heating system and also the TV controls and both times the receptionist was extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel is very close to the station, if you know where to go! We got lost the first time. The best way: exit the station by the main entrance, use the zebra crossing and go through the archway (between the Meridian Hotel and the Citibank) and continue straight ahead. You'll see the Royal Windsor Hotel on your right. Turn right immediately past the Royal Windsor and down the hill. At the bottom turn left and the Alma is almost immediately on your left.) That way is best as it avoids some of the cobbles if you have trolley luggage and literally takes just minutes. We would certainly return there. It's not plush or flowery but definitely better than basic.
stayed here in a triple room. Instead of folding bed for 3rd person received interconnecting room which was very generous for my daughter. The position was great - walking from the centraal station is easy but the cobblestones eat away at the wheels on the suitcase - but not really much you can do about that"Hotel Alma" so don't look for the advertised name as you won't find it. My only complaint is that the room absolutely stunk of smoke and even with the window open was difficult to get rid of the smell - even the pillows smelt of smoke.
This would not deter me from staying again. I had a great rate orf 87 Euros including excellent breakfast probably the best value of my trip.
Estuve aquí en una triple. En vez de una cama plegable para una tercera persona, me dieron una habitación interconectada. Fue una generosidad que tuvieron con mi hija. Estaba ubicado fenomenal - es fácil ir andando desde la estación central, pero el adoquinado se carga las ruedas de la maleta - XXXXXpero no hay mucho que puedas hacer por el "Hotel Alma", así que así que no busques su nombre porque no lo encontrarásXXXX. Mi única queja es que la habitación apestaba totalmente a tabaco, y que aun con la ventana abierta era difícil librarse del olor - incluso la almohada olía a humo.
I have recently stayed at the Alma Grand Palace Hotel for 4 nights..and I would definitely recommend it.
my family and i stayed at this hotel Christmas week. it was just finished in Oct. 2006. i know others that have stayed here earlier mentioned that, being brand new, some kinks needed to be ironed out. well, in our opinion they have been. first of all, you can't beat the location. it is 2 blocks away from the Grand Market. there are resataurants galore up and down every street.
We had a great stay here for two nights. It was close to the Central station which was an easy train ride from the airport. The cobblestones are a little hard on the wheels of the luggage but that is what is expected to have the atmosphere of the centre of an old city.
Arrived behind a couple who were re-located across the street to another hotel. A cheerful man on the front desk in slightly chaotic surroundings. Lobby still being decorated, Lifts had paint still sticky on outside. I read reviews of this hotel from a couple of months ago saying the lobby was being worked on.
