Subject: Re: [ubl] UBL TC meeting in Brussels 22-26 May 2006

Dear all
I have been looking at the Argus Hotel website and am having trouble 
making up my mind.
The main concern with this hotel is that I don't think there are any 
open spaces (i.e. lounge area, bar area etc) where we could potentially 
hang out in small groups on the 25th of May to discuss anything. 
Additionally, I get the impression that the wireless internet is the 
only connectivity available and that seems to be (from the picture) in 
the small lobby area only.

Does anyone else have this concern?
