So tired waking up today, putting on all our wet smelly shoes and half clean clothes haha. Headed down, ate some food and waited for the bus. Each day it is quieter and quieter on here. Hoping for no rain today! Read the TomorrowLand news from the previous day and waited to arrive. Got dropped at the gate today. yay. saves the good 20min walk. …
Woke, showered, got half ready headed down to breakfast. Came back to our room for a couple of vodkas, finished getting ready then off to catch our bus at 12noon. Took some time to get to the festival then had to walk for about 20mins to actually get to the entrance!
Bought drink tickets and checked out some stages nearby. The mainstage was …

Checked in our luggage..my bag has gone up 5kgs haha and Sarahs 3kg. Checked everything in then had awhile to wait. Just read our books til it was boarding time.

We spent the weekend in Bruges, Belgium. Enchanting is the word I have to use to describe this city. The areas around the city's squares made me feel like I stepped back in time. I was surprised how so many of the buildings and homes were so old but well kept that they were just charming. Many homes/buildings had statues placed on them (religious looking ones) and there were quaint bridges (one just outside our ...
... it was so cold! There was an ice bar inside so we got some jaegermeister and mulled wine to warm us up!
After that we went into the town centre and looked around the Christmas Markets - a lot of the stalls were similar to the ones in Brussels but they were still interesting to look at. There was an ice rink in the middle of one of the markets but I'm terrible at skating so we just watched for a while. We got some Belgian waffles from a stall and they were so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Martin's Central Park Brussels
I found a great deal on this hotel at Hotels. I am a student studying in Italy this spring, and safety and costs are both big issues for me. This hotel was SO SO SO nice. It's comprable to a Marriott in the States. Eurovillage is right beside the European Union, and the metro stop to the Grand Place and Palais Royal is about 300 meters away from the hotel. Extremely safe and clean area. Great hotel!
Enjoyed the stay
Stayed here for two nights with my husband and 5yr old daughter . The rooms were spacious and very clean . There is coffee/cappucino/hot chocolate machine on each floor that was free . Lobby is quite nice and has enough coaches and sofas to sit and chill a bit . Breakfast had an above average spread and the food was very nice . Free parking in front of the hotel was a bonus . Only downside is that it is loacated a bit out of the old town but the metro station must be about 400 meters from the hotel .
This hotel was the closest to an American-style business hotel that we stayed at during our European trip. Overall, it was the one of the best we stayed at during our European trip. Additionally, it was a great value since we stayed on the weekend and prices fall when the "Eurocrats" leave town for the weekend (75 USD per night in mid OCT 2005).
For all its three star status, this hotel must be a borderline 4* with 3* rates. I paid about £51 per night including breakfast and car parking. For this kind of silly money you can spend the rest down town in Leonidas Chocolaterie!
Could be a solid 4
This hotel could be a very solid 4 star hotel. Nice lobby, decent size rooms, clean bathroom. If you are very picky, there were a few minor things like the bedspread had a little burn. For under 100 euros it was a good deal.
We had a car, so free parking was a plus, but be aware that is a little far from all the action if you don't have one. However, I believe there is a metro station very close.
They had a free coffee/cappuccino machine in the floor, nice plus for us caffeine lovers!
Taking the hotel as an octopus hot deal I was wondering about what i will find on my arriving there. When I left i was sorry that i had booked only one day! Huge single room with almost a triple bed and a small living room with two lounge chairs and a small table. There was also a DSL connection with daily fee wich i did not use. The real suprise was the bath room where combs and hair brushes were provided. Breakfast was fine in a small cosi room. If you are a coffe lover don't expect too much but as I found this happens to the whole city...All this in a 200m distance from the Europian Union Building. Bus No12 with directly connection to the airport 300m and metro station about 200m besides the EU building both. I won't search for another hotel if I return to Brussels!!!
