Travel Blogs from Brussels
It was ironic that the song that came up on my iPod shuffle on my way into Brussels was the infamous Ca Plane pour moi, a nonsense song about nothing. Plastic Bertrand had a one hit wonder with this song in 1978 and hailing from Brussels, this was always going to be the title of this blog entry. I arrived here on a typical Belgium day, bucketing …
Belgium was amazing :)
... on randomly placed facades of wall, some cartoons are painted. We stumbled across a few - Tintin on a ladder, near the Manneken Pis. A large fat character near the Galeries St Hubert and a further cartoon nearer the station. Don't know a lot about cartoons, but they were a bit random! We wandered around a few more streets - up to the old stock exchange building of Bourse and the empty fountains at Marche aux Poissons. Here was a very lively ...
So this morning we woke up at a decent time so we could get breakfast and head out the door at 9:30am. Well the longest part of checking out was waiting for the darn elevator. It was seriously the slowest thing in the world. Plus when it got to our floor, there were already two people in it so we couldn't fit two large suitcases in there.
We got to the train station, in the rain of course, with some time to spare. Luckily, our platform was just right outside. There were a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bristol Stephanie Hotel Brussels
Wy wife and I chose to stay in Bristol Stephanie for 3 nights when we attended the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Belgium.
My husband and I had a wonderful weekend break in Brussels. From Lastminute.com we got a great deal - 2 nights in the Hotel Bristol Stephanie inc breakfast and return Eurostar tickets for £285 for the whole holiday including booking fee. The hotel is situated on Avenue Louise - which is where all the designer shops are located - very nice area. The trams run outside the hotel and these will take you within a 4 minute walk of the Grand Place, alternatively the Underground can be found at the end of the road. It is a fairly convenient location - a taxi ride from the Grand Place to the hotel is 8 Euro's.
I spent quite a while researching accommodation for my weekend to Brussels in early February and I thought I had found somewhere exceptional...however I had not. I found the hotel a typical bland corporate enviroment, way over priced simply because 99% of their rooms are occupied Mon-Fri by EU bureaucrats who dont care about the room rate because its paid for by the tax payers of Europe.
A five minute taxi ride from Midi station located on the Avenue Louise with lots of shops surrounding. The hotel was excellent, the room we had was huge and clean. I would visit this hotel again but I wouldnt include a sunday in my visit as most things around that area are closed.
Spent a long time researching for a 5* hotel in light of getting such cheap Ryanair air fares in mid December 2003. Found Tripadvisor the best way to do this however found Bristol stephanie fell short of (perhaps) our high expectations. Buffet breakfast was OK but always cold. Reception staff staff were courteous and helpful, and interestingly were not local whereas sole main bar (local) staff was very rude and made us eat/drink elsewhere. Pool was not available to us and this was one of the main reasons for the choice - however limits of opening times are not pre-warned. Location was ok for high street (expensive) shops but a long walk from the more interesting thoroughfare of the main square where we would stay next time.
Pleasant and comfortable, if entirely anonymous. Restaurant is poor, with a particularly half-hearted maitre d'hote. Some rooms are much better than others.
Stayed here this weekend and could not wait to write the review.
Excellent base for shopping
My sister and I spent a weekend at the Bristol Stephanie earlier this year. The room was enormous and very comfortable - lovely colours and fabrics. The bathroom was huge and luxurious. Excellent selection at breakfast - staff very helpful and courteous. If you come to Brussels for shopping this is the place to be - situated in lovely avenue in heart of the shops near nice restaurants and cafes. We two women felt very safe walking at night within the vicinity. Highly recommended.
nice neighbourhood, great service, cool pool, abundant breakfast, picking up for trips to Belgian cities right from the hotel - excellent! will definitely return again
We (my husband, myself, two sons and their wives) spent a weekend at the Bristol Stephanie and it was wonderful.
