TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Matignon Brussels
We were 5 five friends and stayed at the hotel for 1 night only.
Location is good. Staff were friendly. Service and the facilities are also fine.
I would recommend this to anyone. Tariff was reasonable.

Apparently they were inducting a few new members into their group. Little Mannekin-Pis was clothed in mini "Delirium Tremens" robes and before we knew it he was (excuse ...
... 1200 and 1500. For nearly 1000 years it has been the most important church in this largely Catholic country. I've visited hundreds of churches in Europe, but this one had the most beautiful stained glass windows I have even seen. The royal weddings and funerals take place here as well.
From there we wandered through Parc de Bruxelles. Pretty, but certainly not Central Park, or even Bethpage ...
