I was just reviewing our photos of Brussels and realized there is WAY too much to talk about in just one post, so I’ll make two posts for the Brussels – one for each day! Plus, I have to be honest- one of the best parts of the trip was our amazing hotel and it’s interior design- I realllly want to talk about it and show you pictures. We celebrated our 9th anniversary the night we arrived, so I’ll include that in this post! The 3rd and final post will be about all of our sight seeing!
We left Luxembourg midday Saturday after our tour of the Casemates. The drive was so lovely and quick! When we got to City Centre Brussels, it was a complete ZOO! “Turn Left”, said the GPS. But alas, no left turn. People were overflowing off the sidewalks into the streets, and even some of the streets were pedestrian pathways only on the weekends. We found a garage to park in for a couple of days, rolled our luggage through crowds, over cobble stones, around left over belgian waffles. But our hotel… was an absolute haven!
I love the unique, one-of-a-kind boutique hotels in the center of town and Bobby tends to like the commercial hotels where you know what you’re going to get. I kind of got my way on this one- but we were both completely happy with it!
l‘Hôtel des Galeries
Thanks for letting me geek out on the interior design work. My photos are horrendous compared to those on their website. Feel free to check them out here: http://hoteldesgaleries.be/en/pictures/
By the time we got settled in (and I stopped taking so many pictures of the hotel), it was time for dinner. Our hotel’s restaurant had a special menu for Easter -we sat at the gorgeous bar (which we mostly had to ourselves). We were celebrating our 9th Wedding Anniversary a bit early.
For dessert, we had to order the belgian waffle and got to watch the chef make it fresh right at the bar.
OK, that was amazing!
