Belgium for the 1st time

Jump to last reply

I'll be traveling to Belgium for the 1st time this november and we're spending 4 nights there. I've checked too many forum topics when trying to decide which city we should make as our base (we believe we'd waste too much time checking-in and checking-out of hotels every day), and it got to the point where it'd be Brussels or Ghent.

We kinda ended up deciding on Brussels because Gare Centrale is just a short walk away from many hotels, and it seemes to us that staying in Ghent we would have to take another kind of public transportation to get to the stations when going to Brussels/Bruges/Antwerp (still not 100% convinced Brussels is the best option over Ghent but people have so many different opinions about this it's hard to make a final choice).

In Brussels, we have two choices of hotels (based on location, price and reviews): ibis Brussels off Grand Place and Saint Gery Boutique Hotel. Any reason why one would be better located than the other, considering places to dine/have a beer/safety issues walking late at night?

Thanks in advance.
