I selected Brussels as it had the shortest wait time in relation to my location in London. The team at the US embassy in Brussels are super friendly and really helpful. Had an 8am appointment on a Thursday, got there at 7:45 and there was a line down the block. Thankfully they prioritised and let anyone in with an 8am appointment first. They asked for all the required documentation but was a very quick interview and was out by 8:30. Passport was available for pickup on Saturday (despite them saying it would take 4 days) from their courier depot in Vilvoorde. Took about 40 mins taxi ride from the city, and I advise you ask your taxi or Uber to wait for you as it really is in the middle of nowhere so getting one back is a bit challenging.

Extremely straightforward and easy.
The accommodation was quite expensive at the time as it was short notice, I stayed at the Meininger Hotel/Hostel which was great.
I chose to get an Uber to the Couriers which is approx 45 mins from the City Center. Cost 80 euros but was worth it considering the bad reviews regarding courier delivery.
All in all this was a straight forward experience.
