  • Studios dirty: to be avoided

    by

    I invited my brother to see me in Brussels and I booked the studio Residence Agenda located in Rue Berkmans 19 for 5 nights.
    When we arrived, we found the studio dirty and it smelled very bad.
    Dirty means that we found hairs and leftovers of the previous guests and an inacceptable level of cleanness..
    We had to clean up everything.
    Some days ago I wrote a complaint to the Hotel Agenda; as expected I did not receive any answer.
    TO BE AVOIDED.

    Unique Quality: NA

From Charleroi to Brussels

by MagdalenaKaz

Hi All, I will be from 20.08.-22.08.2010 in Brussels. Arriving on CRL Airport. we are staying in Thon Brussels City Center Hotel (Avenue Du Boulevard 17), close to Railway Noord. Can someone advice how to get there cheap from Charleroi Airport, we are 2. Taxi is expensive for such a journey, Door To Door will cost 100EUR. So I think the best way is by Shuttle to Railway Midi, cost 22EUR/psg/return ticket. And then from Midi to Nord or Rogier by Tram number 4? Is this correct or there is some better and cheaper way? Thanks a lot. Cheers. Mag

I don't know but it may be cheaper to take the local bus from Charleroi Airport to Charleroi train station and taking a train in to Midi.

Better even is to take the local bus the the Charleroi railway station, and take the train to Brussel Noord.
All domestic Belgian trains to Brussel call at both Midi and Noord stations.

No it isn't cheaper to take the local bus plus train combo, now that the Diabolo surcharge is included. By Ryanair coach it costs €22 return (€13 single) and then €1.60 for the tram (3, 4 or any number beginning with 3 in the direction Gare du Nord, OR (although it takes a longer way round) metro line 2/6 to Rogier: your hotel is in the same block as the Sheraton, on top of Rogier metro station, not at Gare du Nord. The bus+train combo now costs €19.40 one way (so compared with €12.60 or 14.60 one way by coach) and if you get off at Gare du Nord you are still one tram stop from Rogier - although you can of course walk it in 10 minutes or so if you can manage your bags, and save yourself €1.60.

You don't pay the airport surcharge on tickets from Charleroi, only to Brussel Nationaal.

Re: From Charleroi to Brussels

by qaminari

Strange then that at the same time as the Diabolo surcharge came in, the flat rate combo "airport" fare went up to €19.40, irrespective of whether this is to/from BRU or CRL!

Making it cheaper to get from CRL-Bxl by coach, for €13 (single) rather than local bus plus train (€19.40). I don't make these prices up, you know!

Re: From Charleroi to Brussels

by K_V_B

But a normal ticket from Charleroi to Brussel is still 8,40, and this was not increased in price. Add 1,40 for the bus, and you see that it's not that expensive.

Re: From Charleroi to Brussels

by qaminari

Indeed, at €19.40 the "flat-rate" fare to/from CRL does not seem to be a good buy any more, and despite the way it is presented on the B-Rail page I quoted, it may not in fact be a flat rate but a maximum: Sefora gives €11.30 for combo ticket from CRL to Bxl (still more than the shuttle coach from CRL to Bruxelles-Midi, on the basis of a €22 return ticket, but better than the €13 single rate). This is surely based on the normal cost of a train ticket from Charleroi-Sud to Bxl, which is €8.60, plus the TEC bus fare of €2.70 = total €11.30 - I think you have an out-of-date bus fare?!
Actually just at the moment this trip can be done for a total of €10.20 as the €7.50 "summer ticket" from/to anywhere in Belgium is available till 31 August. But, it has to be said that the direct coach, not involving any changes (and the TEC bus-train connection can involve a long wait at the station) is competitively priced for someone going only to Bxl; rather than continuing to, say, Brugge.

Travel Tips for Brussels

Language

by ZiOOlek

Brussels has two official languages: French and Flemish. All street names are bilingual. However, the region is largely (about 90%) French-speaking, a trend increasing as the grip of the EU tightens. Commuters increase the percentage of Flemish speakers during the day, but in the evening, the city settles down to speak French.

English is increasingly becoming the accepted language for business, not only because of multinationals or the presence of ex-pats, but simply because it is a neutral language. Some signposts even appear in Latin.

Grand Place

by matcrazy1

The main tourist attraction of the city of Brussels and its central tourist poist is a square called Grand Place (Big Square). It's not so big at least in comparison to say St. Mark Square in Venice or Market Square in Krakow, Poland - the biggest mediaeval square in Europe.

But the old, renovated houses around Grand Place looked really amazing either at daytime and at night when the square was heavy lighted. It was a paradise for old architecture lovers! And for those who like watching people :-) Grand Place :-)

Eglise Sainte-Marie

This is Brussels, as end of year gets closer...

by Norali

Early December, the city gradually dives in the jolly atmosphere of year end celebrations.

Streets are adorned, Grand-Place has this dramatic ambience as the buildings (mainly the City hall) is steadily lit in blue, red, green neon lights. Find there the Christmas tree also. Some other buildings are neon-light lit too.

The cows on Grand-Place (neon-lit as well) are reported to leave the country this year. It seems it is the last Christmas you'd see them on here.

For once, I chose another spot to highlight on my pictures when it comes to show Brussels at Christmas period: Place Sainte- Catherine area... - Place Ste- Catherine and March? aux poissons. Places to walk in the dark. Nice in daylight but it has a whole dramatic touch at night.

As for Christmas market, different shots for the two markets:
*March? aux Poissons (Fish Market): shot on December 5, 2003, the start of the annual Xmas market as Brussels gets ready to feast for a month.
*Place Ste Catherine
Shot December 10, 2003. My favourite carrousel is there (Man?ge d'Andr?a). It grants you with another look at the Christmas market on March? aux poissons.

Many more people expected around the weekend. Appropriate music, with special performances by folk groups during the weekends. This 2003 edition, as usual, is the biggest in Belgium with 220 wooden chalets located around the la Bourse (Stock exchange), Place Sainte Catherine and March? aux Poissons.

Also, carrousels there, ice-skating rink to entertain the kids and big kids. Go there for the Xmas market. Not only for the artcrafts (local and foreign, like Laotian silk, love at first sight!!) but more ranges that would suit everyone's taste and budget. This year's theme is "European traditions".. plus the food, boudin de Noel (special Christmas black pudding), waffle and even Vietnamese food.. And Gluhwein, of course!

For 2003, Christmas market till Jan. 2004

- Eglise Ste- Catherine in Blue and pink light.

A nice Vter who went to Koln Christmas market, on 25 Dec. 2003, regretted her trip while I was showing her Brussels Christmas market on Dec. 30 afternoon. She told me she wouldn't have gone that far since this one surprised and pleased her more. I know where to spot her on dec. 31, with her family. yessss! she is returning there.. to try those European specialties? the jenever? hot chocolate? some churros? Belgian fries? .. or would they "upgrade" to heavier Tartifflette and chiffonade? and some winter hut food? or oysters maybe? I know she loves oysters... me too... hehe :)
