It's a nice hotel, but seriously?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Never heard they offer free kosher, (or kosher at all), but hey I don't know everything.

Read through the thread. SuperFlyer, I'm landing in BRU Monday evening and leaving Thursday evening. Thinking of taking a train that first night to AMS, spending Tuesday and Wednesday there, taking a train Wednesday night to ANR, taking a train Thursday morning to Ghent/Bruges and then taking a train back to ANR and train back to BRU to catch my 7PM flight.

Think that's possible? Do I need to buy the train tickets ahead of time?

It is possible, but the Thursday would be quite rushed.

The only train you might want to consider buying ahead of time are the Belgium AMS tickets, if you intend on using the high speed train.

Start Thursday as early as possible.

To avoid rushing, do you suggest doing Belgium on Tuesday so I'm not pressured to catch a flight and then going late at night to AMS. Have 1.5 days in AMS, coming back Thursday afternoon to catch the flight out of BRU?

Yeah, that's going to be the plan. Might even train to Antwerp the evening I land in Brussels, so it's one less train I have to take in the morning. Just going to see where I find a better hotel deal.

Im looking for the contact info for a caterer from Belgium. His factory is in Brussels, he is originally from London. He mostly cooks for hospitals and prisons. I think his name is Shmuel and I don't recall his business name.

If anyone knows who I'm referring to please PM his contract info.

Thanks
