    brussels - exceeds in beer but lacks everyhting else

    if you are a budding beer connosieur then brussels is for you, some of the best beer and best bars in europe make a fantastic weekend bar crawl. however, if you are a foodie, party animal, culture vulture, etc etc... then there are much better cities very near by (amsterdam/bruge etc)

    Insider Tip:delerium cafe is just amazing. 3 floors of beer heaven. potentially the best beer bar in the world.

    Overall, the location did not too bad, I also clean inside the facility. However, the height of the first floor of the bed low tall people may be inconvenient. Otherwise, you generally satisfied.

    Small city but beautiful

    Actually, it's not a big city to stay long, but the atmosphere and great food(waffles and fries!) with cheap price offer you a comfortable and relaxed feelings.

    Insider Tip:1 or 2 days would be enough to look around tourist attractions in Brussels. And I recommend you to walk around not take a vehicle, because it's small city.

    Regular city

    It is a regular city, the same as the others Europeans cities. They have good chocolate and beers. And the Manneken Pis is small, so do not be disappointed.

    A Place You Will Not Want To Leave

    Brussels is great for travellers. So much to see and do. So much history all around you, past and present. The culture of food is excellent and the choice of bars and drinks is unparalleled.

    Insider Tip:Go to Delerium Cafe. Everyone tells you to and there is a reason why - it's awesome. Try Kwak in the Kwak Glass.
