Question by karatekiddo: Where is the Thalys train station located in Brussels?
I want to book a hotel near the Thalys train station where trains travel to Amsterdam and viceversa.
Answer by Willeke
No need to use the Thalys train between Brussels and Amsterdam, as it only saves a few minutes but you have to prebook a certain train. If you just walk to the station and buy a ticket for the next train, it will cost way more than the regular trains.
The normal trains to Amsterdam stop on more stations too, so you have more choice where to stay.
The Thalys stops on Bruxelles Midi/Brussel Zuid.
The International train stops there but also on Bruxelles Central/Brussel Centraal and Bruxelles Nord/Brussel Noord.
