We are going to Brussels in March and stopping at Hotel Siru. Any advice on what clothes to take? Cost of transport? Surrounding sightseeing and best places to eat? Finally being able to communicate if you cannot speak the language?
Thank you all in advance
I am traveling to Brussels for three nights in June with my daughter to see the One Direction concert at King Baudouin Stadium.
We are flying into and out of Charleroi airport.
The concert is on Saturday 13th June and I am guessing it will finish quite late. Our flight is then the following morning and we will need to be at the airport for approx 5am on the Sunday.
When we fly into Charleroi it is during the day so I think we will get on a metro to whereever our hotel ends up being.
Please can you help with hotel recommendations for two females to stay in that is on a reasonable budget. It would need to be easy to get to and from the stadium and airport but also close to some sort of facilities - shops and restaurants. Also I need advice on the best way to get back from the Stadium late at night and to the airport for a very early flight.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Next week we are arriving into Brussels BRU c. 20:15 for a weekend away. I've read that taxi transfers are expensive. I've looked at trains and the nearest station to our hotel is c. 15 minutes walk - Brussels Central station. We don't want to be wandering in the dark around the city when we don't know. We're staying c. 3 minutes walk from metro station "Anneessens". So, my questions (eventually!) are:
1) is it possible to take a metro from Central Station to Annessens.
2} Is it possible to catch a train or metro from the airport direct to Annessens and
3) is there a bus link that might take us close to Rue du Midi • B-1000 Brussels?
I'm visiting Brussels in April 2015, but I don't know anything about Brussels area. Can anyone kindly suggest me the nearest economical hotels/hostels from the fair's place? And how can I get to there from the Airport (and of course the way back to the Airport again)?
Thanks a lot for helping me

I want a quick visit to belgium, probably in January. The flights goes to and from Charleroi airport. I don't want to spend a lot of money, but I want to see the main cities of belgium and nice views - Brussels, Bruges and Ghent.
Where should I stay for a home base? (from which city is the best to take trains?) how many hours will it take to go to each place, because it will be a single day trip... and how much is it supposed to cost? (I'm 30 so no discounts for me).
Do you think that 4 days (3 nights) for this trip will be ok?
Thanks for helping :)
We're staying on Rue du Midi 135, at the Bedford hotel in early January. Is this a nice area?
I have been in Brussels for a while and I would like to hear about some restaurant suggestions from you. Preferably reasonably priced restaurants which are value for money. You can share the links to your tips and I can check. Thank you.
Any hotel or hostel recommended near to city in Brussels and Brugge? Please give some shout out or advice please!
Folks, I've booked an hotel for myself, husband and two friends for a visit to Brussels at end of January. Its called the Marivaux Hotel on Boulevard Adolphe Max 98. Is it an ok area? The price was very good, and I'm hoping thats because I booked so far in advance and not because its a dodgy area. Whilst we will want to do some tourist things during the day, in the evening we like to just eat and have a few beers locally. Does anyone have any recommendations? We like to just sit and enjoy our beers, we're not night clubbers etc.
Kind regards, Mary

Got this question from a friend an I'm not sure what to answer: " I am looking for a local rental car agency. All the big ones like Europcar and Avis ask for a big deposit.
When we were in Prague we found a local agency and got a great deal in the price.
Do you know of any agencies in Brussels?"
Can anyone help me with this one??
I am going to be in Brussels for 5 days with my husband. He is not disabled but he is 86 years old. He can get about OK but is quite slow and we don't want to be walking vast distances or negotiating lots of steps. We are well-travelled and like museums, art, history, music. Any tips about getting around in Brussels? Also any advice about what to avoid.
Does anyone know where to buy apple tea, like they have in Turkey, especially the granule type? All the 'epiciers' in the city seem to have now become Indian, who don't sell this. I have been looking for some months fruitlessly.

Hello, I'm going to travel by train from Rotterdam to Brussels, which station among the 3 in Brussels would be the best to travel to, so that I'm near Charleroi Airport?
Hi, I would like to ask if it is possible to have an hour layover in Rotterdam if I bought the Intercity (IC) ticket and whether it is worth checking out Rotterdam before resuming my journey to Brussels. And if so, where must I visit?
Arriving by eurostar to Midi station with my family of four.
Will be getting the metro to our hotel which is near de broukere.
What train ticket should i buy to travel around, travelling 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 9.
We are intending to walk to the main central sites from the hotel.

I've booked Aparthotel Brussel Midi located on Rue Bara near Brussel Midi station for a couple of nights.
Namely because of the location near the train station and it suited our budget. THEN i read that the location is notorious/seedy. Now...should i change my hotel? Stay? Is it safe to travel to and fro the hotel and station in daylight hours or not? Am I being paranoid and should stop reading on Brussel "safety"?
Pickpockets I am well aware is common anywhere but muggings, I have my concerns. We will be travelling with DSLRs (hobbyist) that will be in our carryon/handbags.
Arrving via Thalys arnd 1PM
Going to walk to hotel via Rue Bara.
Spend the rest of the day enjoying Brussel.
Day trip to Bruges. Another day at Midi.
Early Thalys train at 6AM.
So will be walking from hotel to Midi before sunrise?
What are your thoughts?
Should we pay extra for taxi instead of the 10-15 mins walk from/to hotel/station?
Should we pay extra $$$ for hotels even nearer to Midi?
Thanks in advance
Not usually this paranoid but I-dont-know, Brussels making me uneasy
