Where to stay in Brussels
With a variety of delicious delicacies to choose from, it's easy to see why Belgium is a food lover's dream. Visitors to the capital Brussels can indulge in waffles, chocolate, mussels and hops while discovering one of Europe's most picturesque cities.
Staying in and around the city center allows visitors easy access to the famous Grand Place with its Gothic City Hall and the Guild House. Luxury shopping lovers are drawn to the boutiques on Boulevard de Waterloo and Avenue Louise, while history fans can enjoy the nearby Royal Palace which is open during the summer.
The Brussels Metro system is of one the most convenient and fastest ways to travel to the best sites in the city center. Trams and buses are also available although slightly slower than the metro, which has four lines servicing central Brussels. Renting a car in Brussels is also an option.

I can’t recommend Brussels enough! It is a foodie paradise! So many yummy things to try like the waffles, frites and assorted beers! Definitely recommend!
I like this city. I went there for a weekend trip and wished that I could stay longer. There were so many things to see and do. The food was great, the people were friendly, and the nightlife was fun. I tried out some of their beers, waffles and obviously the chocolates. If I’m near Belgium, I might swing by again for another visit.
I liked Brussels for many reasons. It is a vital city and not a museum piece, which is always a major plus in my opinion. The people are stylish, polite and unpretentious. While they don't seem friendly at first, they aren't surly either and open up quickly. As many guidebooks describe it, Brussels is a mishmash of medieval and modern with a handsome square in the form of the Grand Place contrasting the modern EU Capital district. The beer and chocolate live up to their billing and the local cuisine is both varied and hearty. I would definitely visit again.
Friendly, cosmopolitan city with fantastic cuisine and bars. Lovely architecture. City has a great atmosphere, day and night.
