Hello Gert,
These pictures look like images from a past life.
I am not 100% sure in which street your hotel was located.
I can understand Malgo’s guess (Poincarιaan/Boulevard Poincarι). But when you look at Street View, you see that the angle of the high building is different than on your picture and that tall building is without a doubt the Zuidertoren/Tour du Midi.
That’s why I am more convinced that your hotel was located in the Stalingradlaan/Rue Stalingrad.
You can take a look at Street View but both avenues have changed a lot in the meantime. They even have changed unrecognizable.
Also the Zuidertoren/Tour du Midi, built between 1961 and 1967, has been thoroughly renovated several times. However, because there’s only one tower of that height, I am sure it is that one.
There’s no other possibility in that area. You may perhaps remember that the construction work was in progress when you were there.
At least you were staying very close to the Station Brussel-Zuid/Gare de Bruxelles-Midi, the first of the three major Brussels stations, when you came from England.
Beautiful pictures of the Grand Place/Grote Markt that would fit well in the city archive.
Best regards, Paul
