... about Europe has increased, but the EU is still the major trade partner with the US. Europe has a goal to be less dependent on Russian energy, as Russia becomes more assertive in its foreign policy. As the EU continues to enlarge east (gain more members), Russia continues to feel threatened by this growth. Russia benefits from disruption between US and EU like the recent Victoria Newberg comment.
... overwhelmed, but part of it was the thought that I was going to be stuck in Brussels until February with nothing to do. Then I felt guilty for feeling so ungrateful, which made me feel worse. It was, apparently, one of those illogical moments that has a tendency to strike most ex-pats. I had a moment where I hated the city, nothing was what I had expected. My neighbourhood wasn’t what I had expected, nothing ran the way I had expected it to, the architecture ...

... so we rested in the room before supper.We located a not too touristy restaurant called the Poules Moules. I had the mussels in wine sauce (a Belgian regular dish) and Joanne had Flemish beef stew. Both of us had Belgian frites. Both were quite excellent. The mussels came in a Large pot cooked with wine, celery, onions and I had a bucket for the shells (can anyone say Mr. Creosote, for Monty Python fans). I asked the waitress how many mussels there were and ...
Today we walked and walked. We took a tour of the main sites on a horse and carriage, to experience travelling the streets the way they did a long time ago. We tried some of the local specialties waffles, frites (fries), mussels and of course chocolate and beer!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mozart Brussels
Would not recommend this hotel
Hotel Mozart has a convenient location with easy access to the train station and just a short walk to the Grand Place. But this is all on the plus side. We had reservation for 2 nights but had to check out after the first night because of not being able to sleep all night due to the noise coming from the hotel internal courtyard. I would not recommend this hotel because I feel that the noise in the hotel either from the street lined with cheap eateries or from the internal courtyard is a problem.
We booked this hotel as part of a trip to Belgium which took in Bruges. The hotel is well-located in the centre and with rather baroque furnishings throughout the hotel we looked forward to our stay. The room was a good size and reasonably clean. That first night there was one rather upsetting problem: the room backed onto a central courtyard with an outlet pipe for the kitchen directly below. The cloying smell of stale cooking fat filled the room during the night and meant we had no real sleep that night. After making a complaint we were told that this was the centre and close to the Markt so perhaps we should quit complaining. After standing firm and asking to be moved to another room the concierge (grudgingly) moved us. No chip-pan odours this time. Maybe this was a one-off but the unhelpful and unfriendly manner that our grievance was dealt with means we won't be staying here again.
Good if you want this area
we stayed here for two nights..this is excellently located between the station and the Grand Place...the management kept our bags until we checked in ..the room was small..no tub...and the other person is right the kabob restauants ...they were noisy and dirty with broken glass in the streets... the breakfast room was lovely and had wonderful criossants..this place is run by persons of the Middle East persuation and if they try to get you into a disscussion concerning politics or GeorgeW,.as they did wuth us...dont bite
Hotel Mozart in Brussels is located only a couple of minutes from Grand Place. The street is very noisy and filled with cheap eateries, kept mostly by Moroccans. The food they serve is mainly kebap and such, very low quality. It's hard to believe that one can find that kind of "cheap" and ugly street in the very centre of the city.
We were delighted with Hotel Mozart. We had a triple room and an executive Mozart room along the back of the hotel. Getting to the room was an amazing adventure, "over the river and through the woods" which added to the fun. The decor is over the top but in keeping with the theme. Not a square inch without artwork, a welcome change after a Paris hotel with virtually NO art. Room size was above average for Europe. Breakfast was heavy on bread which was fine with me. I could have done with real cheese however. The staff was incredibly helpful many times, assisting with reservation issues at another hotel, allowing us to use their computer for email, giving directions, and most of all carting heavy suitcases up winding stairs. It's close to the Grand Place and shopping. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
A great value. Just off the Grande Place/Grote Markt, and less than 5 minutes from the Central Station. The decor is High Baroque kitch, w/ marzipan public rooms, a patio and fountain. The rooms are small, but attractive, the breakfast decent, tho' minimal. I found the staff and owner exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is on Pita Street and the more spacious rooms in front may be noisy in the summer. (I was there in early April, 2004.) The hotel is well run and secure. Bring along a Mozart cd. For some reason, all they were playing was Beethoven. Try T' Kelderke around the corner on the Grande Place for dinner.
Hotel Mozart w/Family
Hotel's location is excellent. Walking distance to Grote Markt and all the sites. It lacks a few qualities of a 3 or 4 star hotel such as a consierge, mini bar, internet, tub but is reasonably priced for location. Breakfast is minimal (bread,cheese,coffee) and is included. Please note there are lots of stairs and a tiny elevator. Numerous restaurants within very close distance. Gare Centraal Train/Metro station is 5 minute walk. Beware that trains from other cities such as Eurostar may only come into Brussels Midi Station and you'd need to hop Metro. Metro from airport is ~$3 while a taxi to Hotel Mozart is $$. Final note, we went during Christmas and the whole area: grote markt, grand palace, city hall was beautifully decorated and lots of Christmas markets.
Location is great, just a few steps from the Grand place, and within walking distance of the station. Rooms are small but a have lot more charater than usual city centre hotels. Breakfast was minimal. Staff were a bit unhelpful at times. The hotel is located on a street of kebab shops and bars, so if you want a quiet room, ask for one at the back. Overall this is good value for money, considering its location and character.
We stayed four nights at the Mozart in early July. The public rooms are quite fancy, with lots of marble, paintings, ornate furnishings and of couse classical music in the background. Not exactly my style, but a nice change from the usual hotel decor.
Hotel Mozart, Brussels
It's colourful, it's something different and the decorators have tried very hard to give this place a nice atmosphere. If you stay at this hotel, make sure to get a room at the back; it's noisy on the streetside. Breakfast is very minimal.
