Travel Blogs from Brussels
Happy Fourth of July from Brussels! I slept well last night in Ghent, although our room was much more chilly than previously night on this trip. We ate breakfast in the monasterium this morning, and had bacon, cheese and salami sandwiches, chocolate pudding, orange juice and two cups of coffee. We checked out around 10:30 and made our way to St. …
Hello Again all!
Well, I've certainly had an exciting few days, so this blog post will be rather long, but it’s also full of pictures.
On Thursday we left bright and early for Brussels, Belgium. Our train left at 7:20, so we had to be at the station at 7 am, which meant I had to be up by 5:30. Of course I’m sure we …
... somehow, but it turned out that either my Canadian bank or Belfius had removed a surcharge of €15 when the bank transfer went through, and she said that if this was going to become a regular occurrence that I could pay by cash or “something”. That sorted out, I settled down to preparing a beef stew for tomorrow, which is bubbling nicely on the hob and smelling up my apartment like beef and wine. Art nouveau, Tintin and food? ...
... again and headed down to the bus still hungry and annoyed we had missed our free breakfast. We were confused as to how we could both sleep through two alarms and not remember. As I was to find out later, my alarms were set for a working week and didn't go off on Saturdays or Sundays..sheesh I should have checked that, luckily Stacey woke up just in time. Today our bus driver got told to drop us closer to the event so we didn't have to walk so far. We made it in to ...
... him with US Independence Day attire on which was cool.
From there it was a direct walk to the other most populated spot - Grand Place. Unfortunately for us, there were a bunch of stages obscuring our view, but we managed to get 100 photos nonetheless. With all the buildings having quite a history, it is no wonder that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There were so many people walking around including tourist groups that you could easily ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Queen Anne Hotel Brussels
Teuer, sehr kleine Zimmer, die einen sehr renovierungsbedürftigen Eindruck machen! Und auch nicht wirklich sauber sind. Der Frühstücksraum hat Jugendherbergscharme, das Frühstück ist aber ok. Positiv hervorzuheben ist das sehr freundliche Hotelpersonal. Und bis zur Stadtmitte ist es auch nicht weit, allerdings ist auch der Nordbahnhof nicht weit weg, und das ist ja nicht gerade eine schöne Ecke in Brüssel.
I would recommend an alternative property.
I would not recommend this hotel. There are better alternatives for your money. The rooms are small - very small. I have lived in homes with closets bigger than this hotel room. I have to admit the room was clean, breakfast was okay, the lobby is appealing, and the front desk staff were personable. But, don't let the pictures on the hotel website fool you. My room was nothing like that on the website. If I were to do it over, I would spend the extra money for a nice room in a newer hotel.
My wife and I travelled to Brussels for the weekend and stayed at the Queen Anne Hotel. This Hotel has a perfect location and is exactly a ten minute walk (strolling) to The Grand Place. The Hotel itself is spotless and our towels were changed every day of our stay. The breakfast was excellent, comprising of orange juice, tea, coffee, yoghurts, cereals, bread, rolls, cheese, cold meat, loads of bacon and scrambled eggs. The Hotel Staff were very nice and when we needed to print something from the computer they let us use their computer at Reception. Internet access is free. I could not fault this Hotel in any way and had a fantastic time in Brussels. I have recommended this Hotel to everyone I know since returning to Scotland. I cannot wait to book another weekend in Brussels and of course will definitely stay at the Queen Anne.
I knew this would be a value hotel, but I was shocked at the poor quality of this hotel. I have traveled throughout Europoe at a variety of price points but this was the worst value I have had. I cannot understand the other reviews or if other rooms were more renovated?
This hotel is centrally located less than 5 mins walk from De Brouckere metro station.
It is a very clean, well run hotel with friendly staff. There is a small bar and free internet access (including wireless networking).
The only criticism might be that the rooms are small - but compensating for that is the pretty much unlimited bacon you can have for breakfast !!
Great Place!!!, clean!!, the people from the front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is above the average when you campare it against other places.
hotel is in great position for shopping and grand place, district is not supposed to be the best area but didnt find that. only couple of minutes to shops resturants metro etc,
average room with a large bathroom, very hot room in december so turn off the radiator!! if you dont like the heat. Breafast served in a nice room (self service) if you want a place to stay and you dont intend to spend a lot of time in your room as it is small and not fancy this is an ideal base for sightseeing.
