... boy peeing into a fountain. No, really. Supposedly he represents the freedom and joie de vivre of living in Brussels...go figure!
We certainly enjoyed our stay in Brussels, and it would be so unlike Gigi if there weren't more foodie pictures, so here they are! We will miss the fresh, hot and crispy waffles topped with fresh fruit and chocolate syrup that ...
... closes at 10 and left early. All we wanted was to know of we could leave our bags somewhere for the day as our bus leaves at 11pm tonight. After waiting 45minutes we decided that no one would be around anytime soon so we ventured off into Brussels with our bags. We walked 45minutes to a brewery called Cantillon brewery, we paid €7 each and got to do a self guided tour up close to all the equipment and got to have two different glasses of beer at the end. We both had ...
... in Belgium as our hostel was near but we didn't know how near, and it was getting dark. we hopped on the metro and took a few wrong turns but actually found it quite easily, it was a cute building that looked tiny but you went inside and it was actually quite large, with the cutest lounge and we had four beds in our room all girls! We had a roommate who showed us a little of what she knew in Belgium and showed us the delirium cafe which is so neat it's down cute ...
... made us very anxious and extremely frustrated when we sat waiting for slow passengers to board the plane. Unfortunately Ryanair did not live up to its motto of "If you are late ... we wont wait". As it turns out we had a strong tail wind which saw us arrive in Belgium just 10 minutes later than the scheduled time. We were the first off the lane and the first to clear immigration as we rushed madly around the airport ...
... was useless.
Before the rain set in though it was not a terrible day. Since Belgian beer is some of my favourite I figured why not sop at a little pub on the way to the city center. This way we could enjoy one out of the main touristy areas and avoid tourist prices, I had a Leffe Blonde (one of my faves).
After this all too brief pub break we visited St. Michael's, a gorgeous Gothic cathedral. Then it was on to Cantillon, the last traditional brewery in the ...

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.
