Has anyone stayed at the Hotel A La Grand Cloche in Brussels? What is the hotel like? What is the surrounding area like? Is it safe?
I stayed there for 3 nights last June. Location is good, between two train stations (Central and Midi/Zuid), and a few minutes walk from the Grand Place. It's in a somewhat 'international ethnic' neighborhood but quite nice. I'm a senior woman who travels solo and I never felt unsafe there. The front desk guys were both very nice and helpful, I had some initial problems with my wifi connection but they got it straightened out. Room was basic, nothing fancy, but very clean and roomy. I had no complaints and I would stay there again, have recommended it to others also.
Thank you very much for the information. Your response helped me to make our reservations at that hotel without fear.
Nancy - I just saw this post by Jan. so you like La Grand Cloche. I looked up there site and looks nice. So you were pleased!! I am signed up for the Belgium/Holland 2016 tour april 27 to may 7 and plan one arriving on Sun the 24th with 3 days in the Belgium area before our tour starts. I just sent them an email requesting details, price, etc for 3 days. I know it is in April, but I like to get things solidified asap (time slips by me sometimes). Thanks for your reply to Jan's question.
