Im going to let andrew write a review of Brussels. I found it a little odd, and very cold!.

They are known for all things bad - Chips, Waffles, Chocolate and beer. I tried all except the beer ;-). Other food oddities - Endive gratin (ham wrapped around Endives with cheese sauce, it was bitter. They also love this little statue of a baby …

... 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 ...

Venice Water taxi from San Stea to Ferrovia (train station)
Italia Rail high speed Train from Venice to Rome.
Commuter train called The Leonardo Express to Roma Fiumicino Airport.
British air from Rome to London.
Connection to Brussels, Belgium.
We made our tight connection, but our luggage didn't....... So No luggage.

Not a good way to end a 15 hour travel day.

Our stay in Brussels

A travel blog entry by mcloughlin

... churches everywhere! There are lots of museums and art galleries, most of which are housed in beautiful old buildings. We could have spent a month there!

Apart from its buildings, Brussels is renowned for its beer, its chocolate and its lace. Robert sampled a few of the beers and we both enjoyed the most delicious hot chocolate – a number of times! It was especially welcome on the ...

    Amazing stay

    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.

    Quiet nice room but bitten in bed

    from

    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.

    La camera è piuttosto bella, ma sono stato punto quando ero a letto

    from

    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.

    La habitación estaba bastante bien, pero me picaron en la cama

    from

    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.

    Nice, modern hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Un hotel bueno y moderno

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Gorgeous Hotel

    from

    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!).

    Teething Trouble

    from

    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

    from

    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.
