In order to enjoy the city centre a bit more, we’ve decided to stay at the Marriott City Centre, which is literally 2m away from the market area
Location-wise it’s excellent. But the facilities are not really interesting as it happens with some of the Marriott hotels. The lounge for example is quite small and has almost nothing. You need to be lucky to be there on time for the cheese board and find a space:
The rooms are ok, the usual comfortable beds! We had to chance our room as we didn’t manage to sleep at all the first night. There was a wedding (a noisy one) and even from the 5th floor we could hear it! Also the isolation in the room wasn’t great as we could hear a lot of the noise from the street. But they were actually quite nice and they manage to find us a cosier and quieter room. Oh I did sleep well the nights after that!
The breakfast is really good as well. Nice choice of cheese and bread and if you ask they prepare pancakes and waffles 😀
Anyway, let’s leave the hotel for now. After lunch we were ready to explore the city and try to enjoy the few hours of sunlight we still had.
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t had much of an expectation of Brussels. Had in my mind that it was pretty, but also a small place. That’s the feedback I had from different friends. Guess what? I found it really enjoyable and relaxing.
It does feel you are at the heart of Europe with the mixture between the french style and germanic at the same time. Most people will speak 3 or 4 different languages. It’s quite impressive.
Shall we go for a walk?
And then there’s chocolate everywhere you go! It’s unbelievable
And the best part is the central plaza
I was in love with these gloves! If they weren’t so expensive pfff
And now some nocturnal photos without a tripod
Have in been in Brussels already? Did it met your expectations?
