Posh but limited

I spent 3 nights at this hotel and I have mixed feelings. On the positive side, the beds are to die for, the rooms lovely to look at and the reception area is very dramatic. Conversely, I can not think of a time that I would want to spend £25 (euro the same as the pound at the time of writing) on breakfast, £5 for a cup of tea or soft drink. So dining in not an option. Our room was stuck at 23˚ which was no fun for our toddler who had a temperature of 39.1 and although we 'complained' every night it was not until night 3 that we were moved to another (smaller) room that measured 1 degree less! Additionally I was not chuffed that a lack of door staff meant that the lift at pavement level was unusable and I had to lug a push chair up an escalator to the 1st floor (reception area). This is not an ideal situation for a disabled traveller or parents with a small child. The hotel is in a great location but if I go to Brussels again I would prefer to be around the Grand Place area as this was a more dynamic location. In short, an elegant hotel in an elegant area that is a great place for childless, able people to lay their heads!

We spent two nights in the hotel and enjoyed both. It is in a good area, accessible for Underground and Trains and within walking distance of the Town square. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and the staff all very helpful and friendly. I would be happy to stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Brussels

Bruges If you go to Brussels, or even Amsterdam, please do yourself a favor and do a day trip to Bruges - it is one of the most fabulous cities in Europe. Walt Disney himself could not have created a better example of a town caught in medieval times. There are beautiful canals to match the fabulous architecture. Bruges is easily reached by train from Brussels. Cost of a round trip train ticket from Brussels is 48 euros.

Research your trip Get a good guide before you go. We spent a lot of time trying to decipher the maps and guides provided locally. The maps don't seem to highlight which metro/tram/bus stop you need for a a particular attraction. Once you've mastered it the transport system itself is pretty good. The travel cards are very reasonably priced. For our four day stay we bought a one day Jump Card (4 Euros - one card is valid for for two people at weekends and holidays) and a three day metro card (9 Euros each). The one thing that did impress was the speed of the metro trains, possibly the fastest we've encountered so you have to be pretty smart when getting on and off.

Taxi with pets Taxi drivers do not accept pets in Brussels ! They seems completely idiots (even if the dog, for instance, is in a closed bag !). S avoid it and use metro instead. Very convenient and cheap !
