For this trip we chose the Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre. We stayed here for 3 nights (all of our staying in Brussels) and there was not regrets at all. The location is excellent, especially because we came by train instead by airplane. As this hotel was between the train station and the city center (around 10 minutes walking each side), this was the perfect place for us. It is really close to the Manneken-Pis (around 5 min walking) and 10 min from the Grand Place. So all the restaurants, pubs and most of the touristic points are very close which fitted us (and I believe most of the sane people) amazingly. The room where we stayed was quiet but the best was the breakfast. OMG! The croissants were to die for. And because usually the breakfast for us is also lunch it couldn’t be better. I recommended it 100%.
