... stopped to purchase a 4 euro umbrella (4 euro umbrellas are not wind proof as we were soon to discover) we made our way toward central station again and had a quick peak inside the Mary Magdelaine chapel before heading towards a building (much like QVB in Sydney) which was filled with lots of boutiques all beautifully decorated for Christmas.
We meandered back towards the central market place pushing through the crowds around the markets to take one ...
So many of the back packers that you meet are students that are on summer holiday or taking a gap year. I have met a few teachers but not compared to the number of students. People take a gap year between high school and college so some of these people are only 18! My roommates in the hostel were on a gap year from Australia. 18 and loving life... I didn't realize they were so young when I first met the.. And they didn't realize I was so old! We ...
represents the northern tip of this whole urban area. Anyone with any
prior knowledge of Brussels' city style will be no doubt familiar with
the Grand Place, which contains pretty much the final word in stylish
Belgian architecture, and is a joy to behold, when surrounded by such finely detailed buildings in a sizeable expanse where tourists flock
to gain a feel for this piece of Belgian splendour. Leading off from
the Grand Place are streets a-plenty, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Montgomery Woluwe-St-Pierre
Meine Freundin (am Ende der Reise meine Verlobte) und ich verbrachten hier drei Tage und ich kann das Hotel nicht genug empfehlen. Das Personal ist außergewöhnlich hilfsbereit, einschl. der Einheimischen, die unsere Briten beschämen würden. Eine Zugstation war nur 50 Meter entfernt, da ist man innerhalb von fünf Minuten in Brüssel (nehmen Sie nicht die Straßenbahn, die fährt auf den Straßen und das dauert ewig!). Eines der besten Hotels was das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis angeht.
I travel alot for business and I have to stick to a fairly strict budget for hotels.
The perfect location
My girlfriend (well, fiancee by the end of the break!) and I stayed here for 3 nights and cant recommend it enough. The staff were all exceptionally helpful including one natve who put our English to shame! There is a Metro station 50 yards away which whisks you into Brussels within 5 minutes (dont take the tram, they use the roads and can take ages!)
One of the best hotels especially in terms of value for money you'll find.
My husband and I stayed at the Montgomery for one night last week. He was on business, I went for the ride. While the Montgomery isn't that close to the centre of Brussels, it is ideally placed by a metro station so it is really easy to get around the city from there. The staff were fantastically friendly and even though it is a small hotel it feels like 5 stars. Our room was well-designed and very spacious - almost like a suite in many other hotels. A sofa and coffee table and a generously sized desk with a fax phone provided! Free wireless networking throughout the hotel - this is clearly aimed at business people but its friendliness made it seem like a little haven. Good breakfast buffet - our only disappointment was the evening meal. We were too tired to eat out and although my husband's main dish was excellent, my plat du jour of pork medallions was tough and I didn't eat it. I was given a dessert instead. Would we go back to the Montgomery? Definitely - they get the little things right.
Super room for one person
I stayed three nights at the Mongomery in late December. It is an excellent Hotel. I had a spacious room overlooking Montgomery Square. I could not find fault with the room #314 which was huge and very well equipped including a DVD player. Chocolates were left each day.
Staff were helpful and friendly, speaking faultless English. I got an excellent rate, but be aware of two things;Breakfast is 20 Euros which I feel is excessive, although hot food is cooked to order; the gym and Sauna, if your room is at the front, is approached through either the underground car park or the dining room depending upon which lift you use.
I would return !
Nice hotel but long queues
I stayed here for one night on business. Nice room, friendly staff, hotel felt elegant. Only problem was the very long check-out queue at 8 o'clock in the morning - lots of suited businessmen (like me) checking out at the same time. I gather this is a common problem. Why don't they put on more check-out staff?
Great Hotel, very big rooms, incredibly clean, had sauna which I used 2 times :).
The dvd in your room feature was great, it icluded 2 free rental movies daily!! My wife and I enjoyed this hotel very very much. Its location is great 5m minutes from the grand plaza. Recommend the restaurant in front of the hotel, named Nicos place or something like that.
Highly reommended!! :)
Very nice hotel
Very elegant hotel. Employees very peasant and helpful. 16 steps from the metro. Very quiet, nice neighborhood.
Sitting quite unobtrusively in a terraced building just off a large traffic round-about centred by a beautiful water fountain you will find the Montgomery. Once you walk through the small main entrance you will be greeted with a warmth you have probably not experienced before, rolling from the reception staff right through the decor of the wood panelled, leather chaired public spaces to the sumptuous elegance of the extremely large rooms.
My wife and I spent a weekend in the Montomery Hotel Brussels during May 2004. While it was listed as a 5 star hotel, I must tell you I was sceptical, until we arrived. The decor, room size, facilities, cleanliness, friendliness and service all rate a big 5 in my opinion. Plus, we paid a rediculously low rate because it was a weekend (lower than we had paid anywhere in Amsterdam, Paris and London). The hotel is far enough away from the mad tourist venues to be peaceful but with the subway right next to the hotel, it took us no more than eight minutes to get anywhere. The walk to the tourist traps will take you around an hour but you will be suitably entertained by the sites and open-air park on the way. I would go back anytime.
