I flew in from NY to Brussels and my husband drove in from and hour away to meet me. We decided to spend the night in Brussels before the journey home to family. We settled on the Bloom hotel due to price and reviews. We were not disappointed. The rooms are large and comfortable. Reception was quite busy but still took time to converse both in Flemish to my husband and English to me. She was very nice and welcoming. I was excite to see what artwork our room had in store as the rooms are all different. We had a wonderful painting of mushrooms. What's particularily nice is that they have carefully hung mirrors at just the right angles to reflect the artwork onto other mirrors so you can enjoy it from various vantages in the room. This took some thought, talent and planning - nice. The hotel lobby offers a small quick shop for a snack or drink. Also a nice lounge where we enjoyed a nice glass of wine at an affordable price - we were allowed to take the glasses and finish in our rooms which was welcome after a long day of traveling. Breakfast is great - large buffet style selection. Fresh juices, flavor infused water, meats, cheeses, yogurts, cereal, and a great waffel bar housed in a VW Van - too cute.
The hotel is also in a very nice area - we were there on a Sat/Sun so, street traffic was minimal and it was a nice relaxing walk to the palace and park. On Sun we ventured a few blocks to St Micheals and St. Gudala's Cathedral. We enjoyed a Mass but, even if you are not Catholic this is not to be missed. fabulous artwork. Mass included music from a lone celloist and a singer with a beautiful operatic voice - again even if your not Catholic this would be very enjoyable.
