    Sweet B&B

    by

    Sweet Brussels, for us, was the ideal bed and breakfast experience. We stayed a week and it was really nice to settle in there... the beds were super comfortable, the rooms were clean and the huge rain shower our suite had was really great for relaxing after a long day. We had a little balcony where we could look over the crowded street and take in the great neighborhood. Sofie is a wonderful hostess who helped us with great advice on where to eat and how to find our way around. She was also understanding... I had a mishap trying to do my own laundry in the sink and ended up colouring a bunch of her towels and cloths. She was totally fine about it and wouldn't let me pay extra for anything. The mini-fridge is stocked with drinks on the honour system for the same price you would find them at the store, which was very convenient. The breakfast is a major highlight- there's a huge variety of fresh breads and pastries, meats and cheeses, coffees, and eggs cooked-to-order.

    I wanted to also mention how happy we were with our choice to stay a bit outside the main tourist area. The building is in a diverse downtown neighbourhood not far from the Bruxelles-Midi station. To get to the area with the main tourist sites it's a nice 15-20 minute walk along a busy street with lots of stores and restaurants. There's also a tram station just across the street. North African culture is strongly represented in the area and there are several tea houses and restaurants around that keep people on the streets until very late at night. By staying outside the main tourist area we got a very nice stay for less money, and the opportunity to see Brussels from some different angles.

    Unique Quality: The beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, great service. Sweet Brussels knows exactly what makes a great B & B and they totally nail it in every way.

    Directions: Within walking distance, even with luggage, from Bruxelles-Midi Station.

Driving to Brussels for one day

by neelv

Driving to Antwerp this Friday to meet a friend late in the evening but wanted to spend the day in Brussels and visit Grand palace, Atomium and Manneken Pis. Where is the ideal place to park in Brussels Centre or is it better to leave the car on the outskirts and take the train in? I will be driving up from Bitburg/Trier area in Germany.

thanks for your help,
neel

Traffic in and around Brussels is usually pretty congested on work days, so if you have the option, taking the train in would be best. You won't lose nearly as much time as you would if you're stuck in traffic or looking for a place to park.

I think that the places you want to see in Brussels are not in walking distance. I drove there and found parking spaces and even saw Pee pee boy. I would drive, but I remeber it was hard to find road signs. I had a map and went in the direction of large monuments, landmarks or attractions. I always found the places I wanted to go. I also went to Brussel on a train from Paris but did not have a car and it was hard to get around.

If you don't have a car in Brussels, you can always use public transportation. Google maps now has the public transportation system of Brussels to use to map out your route.

Grand Place and Manneken Pis are within walking distance, but the Autonium is quite a bit further out. I would guess that the public transportation in Brussels would take you there easily, though I never had the chance to explore that. I'd check it out as I've heard that in Brussels, it's the best.

There is roof top parking on a building near Gare du Nord--also within walking distance of Grand Place that seemed not to ever be full but I can't remember the name of it just now.

Just beware that Belgians are very aggressive drivers, especially on motorways!

thanks for the info...

I have a GPS so I usually am ok in most cities.

I read somewhere there are free car parks around the atomium. Is it still free and a good option to park and then take the metro in?

thanks

Re: Driving to Brussels for one day

When I was at the Autonium there was plenty of parking all around.

Hello, thanks for the info...

had a good drive to Brussels... found some parking near the Atomium (although I believe there was something going at the expo center for it was packed)... took the metro from Heysel into city centre and then just walked until it was time to head back. Had a good day trip!

thanks and yes the belgians are pretty aggressive on the road, don't quite understand why they are in such a rush?

So, now it's time you gave us your thumbs up :)

Great day, gone and back in sixty seconds. Sounds like you were driving fast Ha Ha glad that you are safe, I forgot to tell you to check out the chocolates and gyros in Brussels. Two foods that I can still taste and long for that were near the big square.

OOOhhhhh, that's not true : it's a JOKE :o) I work for live, I live for travel, so I work for travel !!! Simple way to live !!!

The biggest buiding of 19th c.

by matcrazy1

It's said that the Palace of Justice was the biggest building constructed in 19th century. I don't know but believe it was real huge, huge edificie. I took my first picture in Brussels just there - at one of back (smaller ones) entrances to the building.

The building was 105 m (344 ft) high, hmm... it's approx. 35 stores in contemporary buildings. To be honest I didn't like it's style (eclectic with a lot of neo-classic I could say) but, anyway, it was interesting to see it.

À L'IMAIGE NOSTRE-DAME

by LysDor

An old inn owned by the same people as A La Bécasse, and similar in style. It, too, is hidden down an alleyway (keep-up your head) and has a heritage feel, with old wooden tables, stained glass and leather benches. Good for cold days or gloomy Sunday evenings.
