I'm going on a cycling trip in Belgium in early June. We'll be staying in a bed and breakfast in Brakel, which is in East Flanders near Oudenaarde, and cycling in that area with a guide. Prior to the cycling, my buddy and I will be in Brussels for 30 hours or so. We'd like to do some of the "must see" stuff in Brussels like Cantillon and hit some bars. Where is the best area, or particular hotels to stay in? Cost (within reason) is secondary to location.
