Hello - we are flying into Brussels airport and then taking train to Maastricht, however we will stay in Brussels for 1 night on route as our flight arrival is around 6 pm. and we would like to eat in Brussels. I think the train to Maastricht leaves from Gare du Midi ( to Liege). We are looking at hotels near Gare du Midi but would like to know is that station on the train from the airport too? Or should we be looking at hotels near Central Station? We will only have hand luggage and so just want to walk to hotel if it is safe to do so. Which of the 2 stations is the safest area? Some bad stories here on the station surrounds. We would like to have a good food dinner in Brussels that evening - any suggestions? - we can, of course take taxi to the restaurant. Many thanks for any ideas or comments from those of you in the know or local.
