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 :)
... place. Eventually we stumbled across where we wanted to be and I finally found the exact table cloth that I wanted to take home as a memento from my visit. It's white and has beautiful bobbin lace that was hand made as described yesterday. I love it and I know it will be lovely on our wooden table at home. There was a lovely jeweler shop we passed and Jo ended up buying a really nice antique ornate cross with a ruby set in to it. It truly is lovely and she wore it straight ...
... We continued to the Musical instruments museum listening to instruments from all over the world and throughout different eras. We finished our day by going to Grand Place and seeing the Manneken Pis. Later that night we went to do our laundry and talked to a lady who said that Brussels and Belgium in general is currently going through an economic crisis, something we felt ...
... night. Our last stop in Brussels was to Maneken de Pis, which is a staute of a peeing boy, there are a lot of legends explaining the statues significance. The statue is also dressed in costumes several times each week, the wardrobe consists of several hundred different costumes. The next day we made it back to the airport and went back to Cork, which we all were more than happy to return to.
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.
