... at the very least, in most US airports). We finally rounded the corner to the gate (which was one of the very last ones, because obviously), and ran to the counter. As I stepped up and read the faces of those who had made it there before me, I already knew our fate. The terrible human being serving as on-duty manager acted like he had literally waited ALL DAY to be able to bark at people and turn them away, taking this as an opportunity ...
... for sleeping on a 24 hour journey. After catching up on some shut eye, getting ten hours, it's still the equivalent of 3am (New York time) when I wake up when a group from Singapore create far more noise than you would reasonably expect for people packing their things at 8.30am. I've just been wandering around Brussels ...

I also remind myself that in London I didn’t have many meetings scheduled at the beginning of the week but left the city having met with nine different individuals/organizations. As I travel, I will consistently need to remind myself that I am allowed to take time for myself and experience the cities and not to stress about the number of meetings. It will all work out in the ...

We backtracked to Moeder Lambic for a snack and a couple Cantillon faros on draft. Though
the brewery was out (a sure sign it is the BOMB), Moeder had it on tap. Simply amazing! Definitely the finest of the genre IMO. Our thirsts quenched for the moment, we headed back to the station for our final stop of the day, Gent.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSofitel Brussels Europe Etterbeek
Really great hotel for the value. One of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Loved the layout and design of the room, very cozy yet spacious. Market outside on Sunday morning was the perfect way to start the day. Would highly recommend.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Brussels Europe Etterbeek
Quiet nice room but bitten in bed
hotel is a few minutes' walk from European Parliament on a corner that is busy in the day but quiet at night...except for hotel's piped music which is relentlessly piped out in all the public areas and even to the square through the night.
Staff were friendly but early morning taxi had not been booked as promised. There was no room in the restaurant and the room service meal was not great for Sofitel.
The room and bathroom were clean and, although the tap was loose in the sink, nicely styled.
The problem was the wretched Sofitel bed: the duvet under the sheet may make the mattress feel soft but it's a flawed concept as it was also home to livestock which bit like crazy through the night and meant no sleep after 3 am.
L'albergo si trova a pochi minuti a piedi dal parlamento europeo ad un angolo tra due strade che è molto animato durante il giorno, ma tranquillo di notte ... eccetto per la musica che l'albergo diffonde costantemente in tutte le aree pubbliche e di notte addirittura sulla piazza.
El hotel se encuentra a unos minutos a pie del Parlamento Europeo, en una esquina que está llena de gente durante el día pero tranquila por la noche...excepto por la música que viene del hotel, y que se extiende sin descanso por todas las zonas comunes e incluso por la plaza por la noche.
I spent New Year's Eve at this hotel, which is quite new and looks and feels as such. It is well located for the business district, and only ten minutes from the city centre.
Las excelencias del Sofitel
Un hotel que está fenomenal y un personal muy amable. Me alegraba estar alojado en una habitación tan bonita y desayunar en un restaurante tan bien decorado. Es un hotel de 5 estrellas y te gustará.
Pasé Fin de Año en este hotel, que está bastante nuevo y se ve y se nota que lo está. Está bien ubicado con respecto al distrito de los negocios, y a solamente 10 minutos del centro de la ciudad.
Excellents of Sofitel
Very nice hotel and staff very friendly.I was very hapy too stay in soo nice room and too take the breakfast in the nice decoration in restaurant. This is 5 stars hotel and you will like it.
What a lovely hotel. We only paid 95 Euros per night to stay in a luxurious modern hotel, not sure if this was an introductory rate as the hotel has just opened (back of door said rack rate 450 Euros per night!).
New hotel in convenient (business) location. However, from start to finish, it was clear that the hotel hasn't yet developed into a 5star hotel. Not many positives (although rooms were very clean), on negative side:
~ slow check-in ... 2 desks for 5star hotel! had more concierges
~ minibar was hot not cold .. so useless basically
~ air conditioning partially worked at the entrance to the room, otherwise main bedroom area received little to no air
~ advertised gym/spa .. but not yet finished...basically nothing to use other than a few exercise machines.
Sure it will develop into a fine hotel ... but it shouldn't be charging 5star prices right now.
Excellent Modern Design Hotel
I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights during a weekend. This is a brand new hotel, opened in September 2006, and everything is new, modern, design-style and clean. The hotel is conveniently located near Schuman Metro station, and there is a square in front of the hotel with plenty of dining options. On Sundays there is a market in the Square. Staff are friendly. Only downside is expensive breakfast EUR25, there are many cheaper options outside hotel. Walking distance there are also two supermarkets and just across the hotel is the Museum of Science. I would certainly recommend this hotel and go back.
