Travel Blogs from Brussels
10th and 11th September - We have arrived in Brussels Belgium for a 2 night stay. As always there is heaps to fit in. First up was the Atomium which was built for the World Expo in 1958. It is a huge replica of an iron molecule and is one of the main attractions to see. We went up to the top and the view was amazing. Belgium is home to the European Union so all major decisions concerning the 27 countries in the EU are ...
Train journey 2 ... London St Pancras to Brussels Eurostar.
Journey time 2hours 10minutes
Hearty breakfast at the college and a tube journey with expanding bags to St Pancras.
Easy boarding onto coach 16 (very long train!!) to Brussels. After navigating the huge train station at Brussels Midi, we eventually work out how to get the metro line 4 through Kunst-Wet ...
... It was very sweet.
After I went with my uncle Bruno to his house and visited with my cousin Pierre-Gilles who has grown a few feet since I last saw him. His sister Elleni has grown a lot too, but she was three when I saw last her and is 8 now. She was very energetic and playful, just like I remembered her.
Pierre-Gilles, on the other hand, has grown up quite a bit. His english is greatly improved as well. I ended up playing monopoly with him and ...
... not a good situation to be in.
We reached our hotel and made a game plan for the next 48 hours. We were all so scared. However, the next day the anxiety toned down a little and we headed to Brussels--Central for a day in the city. I can atleast say that the city was gorgeous! We visited churches and monuments. We also toured a Belgium brewery and ate Belgium waffles! It was a wonderful day and we were all happy again.
The next stop...Brugge.
... few days ago. No miniature of Manneken Pis though. We were all puzzled by the heavily trafficked bridge as the one and only miniature from Luxembourg! But upon thinking about it later, I wasn't sure what landmark should have been there instead.
A return trip to the playground with a tiny spot of additional rain rounded out our adventures, and we made it home I n plenty of time to make dinner.

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Dixseptieme Brussels
I stayed here only because I found an excellent deal from the hotel's own website. On weekends, they have a 50% off promotion. As I was traveling alone, I reserved their "standard single" for € 90 (regular rate € 180). The promotional rate does not include free breakfast. I stayed for 1 night only.
We stayed in Le Dixseptieme February 5th - 9th 2005. It was a birthday treat, a low-key but luxurious few days in Brussels for good food, good beer, a little shopping, a spot of sight-seeing. Le Dixseptieme made a wonderful base for our stay. The location really is unbeatable (and it's about a 10-minute taxi ride from the Gare du Midi if you're arriving by Eurostar.) The breakfast buffet is very good. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. We had a junior suite, 'Paulus', in the 'classic' section of the hotel. From the descriptions of other visitors, I expected something 'olde worlde', but in fact the style of both the rooms and the public areas is extremely chic and not old-fashioned at all. The floorboards may be ancient, but the design is clean and contemporary - cream linen sofas: tasteful, muted paintwork: state-of-the-art flatscreen TVs: and simple but luxurious touches throughout. Great bathroom, comfortable bed - what more could anyone wish for?
We stayed in the "le dixseptième" from the 5th of February till the 6th of February '05. We booked the "Bouts" suite in the "ancient" part of the hotel. This part is really a must for the traveller who wants something more than an traditional room in a Hilton, Marriot, etc.
We stayed at the Le Dixseptieme early March 2004 for one night. The location is perfect- a block away from Grande Place and also a block to the Central train station from which we arrived from Bruges. We also stayed in the Rubens Suite. Huge, had a full kitchen, very large living room with fireplace and plasma TV, 15 foot ceilings, pine floors.
I chose the hotel based on the ecstatic reviews of others here and agree with them almost entirely. Perfect location just 2 blocks from the train station and a similar distance to the gorgeous, historic, town square. Step out of the hotel and into the lively street and dining scene that surrounds the square.
A quirky jewel in the heart of Brussels
In many ways this hotel was the jewel of our trip through Europe this September. The reception rooms were stunning, the staff impeccable, and our room was far beyond our expectations for the price we paid. We stayed in the Rubens Room, which was actually a suite though we weren't aware of that beforehand. Entering through huge double-doors, we had an enormous sitting room with beautiful furnishings, 15-ft. ceilings, a gorgeous fireplace, and a plasma television. The bathroom was also beautiful. The bedroom, however, was not much larger than a closet. The breakfast buffet, though very lovely, was not restocked with more hot entrees when there was still an hour left for breakfast. These were our only complaints, and I think we would definintely return to this hotel.
Our honeymoon in Belgium was made even more wonderful by our choice of hotels. We Stayed here for 4 nights in august and it was excellent. The rooms are outstanding, ours had it's own hallway - very spacious and luxurious in every way! Even though this is a small hotel (a bonus in my book), it is ideally located and the staff are very friendly and helpful. will definitely stay here again. Thank You.
Best of trip
Checked in with our 20 year old daughter, they gave her a free room because a third bed was not available. This is a very classy little hotel close to everything and very quiet. This was definitely the best hotel of our Europe trip this summer and priced cheaper than hotels that weren't half as nice.
A stylish city centre treasure
A small and exquisitly charming hotel just around the corner from the Grand Place in a relatively quiet street. Walking distance from everything of interest in Brussels, the hotel has everything that the chains do not. Stayed there several times - all of them a pleasure except 1 where the room had a very small double bed. Other than that - a faultless experience.
My first contact with this hotel was on a business trip 1997. My company's travel agency recommended this as a centrally located accomodation wich had received very good ratings by other customers. At that time, I usually stayed at the SAS Radisson hotel when in Brussels, but I gave the Le Dixseptieme a chance, to get some variation. After that trip, I always stay at the Le Dixseptieme. This hotel is ideally located between the central train station and the Grand Place. The hotel is situated in an old (spanish, I think) ambassador building. The rooms don't have ordinary room numbers, they are named after famous flemish painters, and every room/suite is different. Last time I had the room 'Permeke', which had a really nice open air sunroof! Perfect for relaxing, when it's not raining in Brussels...which is not that uncommon...
