Baileys & Champagne for Breakfast! A review of Renaissance Brussels Hotel

Although we (my wife and I) thought the hotel very good, was extremely surprised to find how quiet Brussels is....Even for the first weekend in the New Year. We travelled on the Friday via First Class Eurostar and the taxi to the hotel proved to be simple enough. The room was nice, with a queen-size bed and all the usual facilities. The pay channels on the TV proved somewhat interesting as my wife pressed a few buttons and hey presto 13euros lighter for pure sex! Still what the hell, you only paid the once for all-day entertainment. We found a nice restaurant very close in situ called Le Sel et Poivre, but for some reason this is closed on Saturday and Sunday. Is this a Belgium thing? Got hopelessly lost on the Brussels Metro the following day, but had a laugh anyway, especially when we discovered that everywhere is only about 20 minutes walk anyway. Enjoyed the Sablon area and Avenue Louisa and found the Fisherman's alley quite by accident..Great weekend, including the train, but next time I will hit Lille as I found Belgium a tad too dull for my liking...
