Time to say goodbye to Amsterdam & the Netherlands. Our next destination will be Brussels, Belgium. We both found Amsterdam a place of contrasts and very different, "the Venice of the north". It is quite something, a blended mix of sin city, unique (& in some cases very crooked) buildings, some very beautiful canals and countryside and of course very mad crazy cyclists. Caught a taxi to the central train station, which was ...
Strolled out into a beautiful Brugge day to get our last taste of the city. We bought strawberries & cheese at the farmers market and each ate a waffle. Annie bought a painting by a local artist & some wooden ornaments that reminded her some she had as as a kid. We decided to go down Harry Potter alley to get some beer and cheese (since Annie missed out yesterday) - it was delicious! We met our host, who was very charming and hospitable. He told us of his ...
... of American tourists just looked at and said very loudly "Is that it!" and looked around exasperatedly, though fair enough, it is a long way to come for a water feature that wouldn't have made the cut on ground force. It was hardly the Trevi Fountain! Slightly more impressive, was the Manneken Peace Graffiti just around the corner from there, complete with hoody and boom box. After a quick tour round the ubiquitous chocolate shops, we headed out on ...
... managed to gadge a Dunkel Weiss beer from them and they told us about their homes in Southern Germany which have been flooded out with all the recent rain storms- there has been a lot on the news about the flooding in Germany . The men are on their way to a classic car show which they are competing in with their "NSU " 1960's shiny red car , but the guy had many other classic cars in Germany and he feared that they had been flooded out in the storms but hadn't rang home to find out for ...
... had really been stolen. The entire way home I slowly broke down of the fact that it was gone. My iPhone had fueled my entire trip with pictures, helpful maps, and internet connection, but now it was gone forever. We gave up on the night and just went to sleep. (That was just painful to relive...)
Saturday, Alec was coming into town all the way from Munich! So, Gavin and I headed to the train station to drop him off on his train and pick up Alec ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu EU Hotel, Brussels Ixelles
In Aug 2006, we booked our room at the SAS EU through Hotels.com. We requested a room for 3 people and received a confirmation, even showing no additional charge for the 3rd person.
Ich machte mir ein wenig Sorgen, dass dieses Hotel sich in einem Geschäftsviertel, fernab aller Sehenswürdigkeiten, befinden würde. Ja, es lag in einem Geschäftsviertel aber Brüssel ist eine kleine Stadt und man kommt mit den öffentlichen Nahverkehrsmittlen sehr gut und günstig überall herum, lassen Sie sich also nicht von der Lage abschrecken. Das Hotel ist sauber und ordentlich. Die Zimmer sind groß und hell, sehr schön eingerichtet und die Betten sind sehr bequem.
Es ist fünf Gehminuten vom Stadtzentrum entfernt, das Zimmer war geräumig, modern, sauber und verfügte über alles, was man sich nur wünschen konnte. Das einladende Personal hatte immer ein Lächeln auf den Lippen, das Restaurant ist gut. Kaffee, Tee und Sprudel gibt es für die Club Room Gäste kostenlose (im Preis ist auch Frühstück eingeschlossen). Die Bar ist recht teuer, alles in allem sehr empfohlen.
A great place in the business district
I would echo other reviews. We found this to be a superb hotel, but it's not exactly near tourist attractions. It is, however, near the Brussels Luxemburg train station, which can get you to tourist central in a few minutes. The only reason we don't give it 5 stars is that the prices in the restaurant are ridiculous. 25 Euro per person for breakfast? Talk about gouging people who have few other choices in the area in the morning. We just took the train to Central Station and ate at McDonalds for 4 Euro each. Brussels is a ridiculously priced city everywhere, but this hotel takes it to new levels.
I was a little worried that this hotel was going to be stuck in the business district away from all the sights. Yes it was in the business district, but Brussels is a small city and getting around on public transport is quick and cheap, so don't let the location put you off the hotel.
The hotel is very clean and fresh. Rooms are large and bright, well decorated and have very comfy beds.
Nice place to stay for the money
The hotel is a great place to stay if you have business in the area. Being brand new it is very clean and comfortable and the bathroom is large and very nice. The location is not desirable for anyone here on vacation. It is approximately a thirty minute walk to the tourtist locations and the area surrounding the hotel was deserted on the weekend. There were no restaurants other than the one in the hotel open and the area surrounding the hotel was not the most desirable. I would not stay at this hotel again on the weekend but perhaps during the week it would be more lively.
a 5 minute walk from the heart of the centre of town, specious, modern, clean room withh all the thing you need or want. Welcoming staff profiding service with a smile, a good restaurant. free coffee/te/soft drinks on the floor for club room users (price includes breakfast). The bar is a bit pricy. alltogether worthy of recomendation.
great hotel but expensive for food 25 euros for breakfast location not bad easy to get a bus down into the main town and shopping area
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend and were very impressed by the overall quality.
A very chic hotel
I'm writing this review as I'm sitting in the hotel room, really modern and chic. LCD Sony TV, really bright and vibrant colours and a reasonable size room. Bathroom has both a bath and shower cubicle - really modern and well designed.
The hotel is very new and the service is already what you can imagine to expect from Radisson SAS - the lobby looks fantastic, you can say the same about the rooms.
Its a business persons hotel, not been located in downtown Brussels and close to the EU parliament building. I paid 77 EUR for one night - which I think is a bargain for such a great hotel!
