I'm thinking of heading to brussels next month. Does anyone know of a good place to stay. I'm on a budget, but I still want something nice!

When I was in Brussels for the jubilation in May I stayed at Hotel Erasme which was one of the cheapest hotels I could find at that time. The hotel was quite ok and had a feature which both I and my friend valued highly. The breakfast buffet had very much to offer and we could eat as much as we wanted, and spend the money on Tintin merchandise instead. The hotel is about 20 minutes subway ride from the city center. When I go to Brussels again, which I have to, I will probably stay at the same hotel, it suited me fine.

Hope that was some help.

If the link doesn't work, go to:

then Hotels and search for Brussels.

Be sure to have tons of cash, there are plenty of lovely stores including the Tintin-shop of course. I also recommmend that you study maps before hand, especially the tram system which is confusing but very helpful when getting around. We had about 5 maps just to get around.

1. A map for every Tintin/comics related must see thing.
2. A subway map.
3. A street map (used most).
4. A tram (and bus) map.
5. Another map for the jubilation connected things.
6. A list of comics stores and their adress.

If you go to the real Rue du Labrador/Labrador Straat make sure you take the tram, instead of the subway, that makes for a long, long walk. A visit to Hergé's grave takes about 30 minutes from the city center.
