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 …
It has been a little less than one week since my return from Brussels and the withdrawals from belgium beer, chocolates, waffles, and fries have already set in. Danica and I had the absolute best time in Brussels and our trip really couldn't have gone more smoothly-except for a little bit of a rocky beginning. We both had class on Friday but right after class we quickly came home and grabbed our backpacks and were off on our next adventure! ...
... the culture.. I love it all!
Well, I apologize for the length of this blog friends! But I feel like every detail is necessary and I cannot imagine how rewarding it is going to be to look back on all these memories!! I can't wait to share the rest of my adventure with you and I know it's only going to get better from here on out! I'll include some pictures from the past few days but the rest of them will be on my Facebook page! I guess that is all for now! Have a wonderful ...
... advertisements all over town for a Lego exhibition, Art of the Brick, which has travelled the world. The artist, Nathan Sawaya, makes large-scale sculptures using only Lego blocks. It was such a good spur of the moment decision to buy an admission. The artworks were intricate and interesting and fun. He had also recreated famous artworks with Lego!
We headed to the UGC movie cinema to watch the second instalment of the Hunger Games. The cinema room ...

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.
