Welcome to the City of sweets Brussels , after what I had of an environmental trip to Germany, I should delight myself that I'm in the city of chocolate, so I should act and make for myself some chocolate cake. So I went to the chocolate market and I was thrilled by how many chocolate was made . Then I came back with a glory feeling to my hometown Abu Dhabi.
The bus ride, as eluded to before was reallllly long. I mean, Ive been on a bus for 40 hours to Wawa treeplanting, but its really bad when you become restless because your bus is running really late. The 1.5 hours past when we were suppose to arrive where incredibly long, especially with the drunk Newfies next to us. Canadians are everywhere. The …
... begin our walking tour of the city. All the museums are closed today, so familiarizing ourselves with the city was ideal. The sun came out and it didn't rain again til late in the day. Brunch was wonderful at Le Pain Quotidien. We both had smoked salmon over chopped egg on whole wheat sourdough bread with lemon, fresh dill and cucumber and cafe latte. We walked and walked with Rick Steeves for five hours and were pooped. We ...
... with rain! In the 10 minutes it took me to walk to the train station guess what? It stopped once I got there! Damn Murphy’s Law!
So, with my boots all wet as they were not leather, I got on the normal train and took my shoes and socks off in the hopes they would dry a little as the heaters are on in the trains over here, which helped a little. But they were still wet.
Once I got to King’s Cross, Marie and I went to the bathroom and ...
... Tin. Lapping up more glorious sunshine we hired villo bikes and spent the afternoon riding out and around Parc du Cinquantenaire. Inside the park is the Royal Army Museum which makes up one half of the giant archway. They had a massive collection of planes, helicopters, missiles and tanks but best of all it was completely free. Cycling back towards the city we made a quick detour around the Parlamentarium which is the center of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Brussels Europa
I was worried after booking this hotel through an online tour company, and then reading some of the previous reviews on this site. I had nothing to fear. We had a refurbished, Gustav Klimt themed room which I have to say was gorgeous. The bathroom was big and beautifully lit, and the bed was heavenly. I didn't even have to touch my boyfriend at night!! (only joking Ben).
Very clean and friendly. The Hotel is about 20 minutes walk from Midi
Station, situated near a Metro stop.
I stayed with a friend in a twin bedded room on the top floor. The room was large with Satellite TV and free Tea and Coffee.
The bathroom was stocked with all the necessary items and even had bath robes.
The staff were very helpful.
The only disappointing aspect was the price of breakfast - 25 Euro's. We didn't bother as a cup of coffee kept us going until we hit town.
This hotel features in many on line deals which work out considerably
cheaper than booking the Hotel direct.
This hotel was byfar the worst I have ever stayed at. I booked it through priceline, and supposidly it was a 4 star, but in actuality, the manager of the hotel said it was 3. The location was soooooooooooooooo out of the way, walking to the city center took about 30-45 minutes. By car, the taxis choose long ways in order to get paid more. Previously, approximately 3 weeks ago I was in Brussels again and chose to stay at the marriott. That hotel was amazing. It was a block away from the Grand Place. Beautiful building, walking anywhere in the center was literally 5 minutes. Don't stay at this hotel. The room service menu is only a page long of more or less 5-6 items. Service is ok depending on the person, but overall I hated this hotel, the location, and the food in it.
I stayed at this hotel with my family. Everything was perfect, taxi from Station is 10 euros, the breakfast was very lovely. This was included in the room rate which was cheap for such a decent hotel. Always check on hotel website for deals.
This hotel is beyond what we expected. Room was still spacious even with the extra bed for my 3-year-old daughter. A child-friendly hotel, kids are free. My daughter enjoyed being treated like a princess during our dinner on the first night. And after the dinner, while hanging out at the bar, the barman gave my daughter a coloring book and colored pens! Totally stunning! The staff is very accomodating and friendly. You can feel their sincere warmth!
Reports of the remoteness of this hotel are exaggerated. To reach the centre of Brussels rapidly, turn left on exiting the Crowne Plaza hotel, walk down two flights of steps, turn right, walk thirty metres under the bridge and the Brussels Metro is on your right. You can travel to Gare Centrale in five minutes for less than two euro. Central Brussels and the Grande Place is literally another five minutes walk away from the Gare Centrale.
This is a typical hotel for the Eurocrats and people doing business with them. An anonymous high rise bunker in the middle of an office district. The rooms are fairly large and comfortable. Unfortunately many rooms overlook a busy railway station. I had problems sleeping. The other rooms overlook a busy 4 lane road, so I guess there's no escape.
I was very impressed with the hotel. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful.
The menu in the restaurant was fairly limited, but the quality was very good.
Perfect European location
Enjoyed the service by the super friendly staff. They realy made my stay. Location is perfect if you want to be close to EU.
We were rather worried after reading the previous reviews like another reviewer was. Firstly I would like to point out that the hotel is situated close to the gare du nor and not the midi where the eurostar arrives. You need to get a train from platforms 7 or 8 and travel 2 stops. A helpful local freely stopped and helped us as we were looking very lost!
