              The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was good and it had all the desired amenities. It is also very centrally located and within easy reach of the Metro.

              If you want a nice room book a superior room however for the normal tourist the smaller rooms would be good too as long as they keep applying good value for money.

              I stayed in this hotel about 5 minutes, because I "fortunately" got a room with a view to the dirty court abour 1 square metres and the window on the lock. Feeling like in a prison cell. So that they haven't got other options for this day I leaved this hotel having payed for my "stay". I highly recommend to specify in advance at the hotel what kind of room you'll get.

              The hotel was very close to the Grand Place and had a very nice gym and sauna.

              The bed was not a double it was two single beds pushed together with a gap in the middle.

              Nothing, terrible service from the receptionist, most unhelpful. Did not care about my needs, I have a disabled husband, and was unable to park my car, when they said there was parking. I had nowhere to stay,this was 10o'clock at night, they wouldn't give me a refund. So I had to find somewhere else to stay, which cost me more euros.They said not my problem, so they couldn't care less. If this is the way you as a guest want to be treated,then this is the hotel not to go TO.Customer service nil. And they will never be manager to complain to as it, only the receptionist there. So beware 0/10

              The hotel is just perfect for business or leisure travel. Rooms are clean and mainly spacious (single rooms can be small), and fulfill a nice set of requirements: coffee/tea making facilities, mini-fridge (no minibar anymore), complementary bottle of water on arrival, variety of TV channels, very convenient breakfast with good variety, 5 min walk to airport train and metro etc.

              After a hard day of work room service would be nice, but they have discontinued that, or they offer one kind of pizza the ingredients of which they don't know, so if you have food allergies and need to know what you are eating, then you don't in fact have any room service options. But no hotel is perfect and even with this down grading of services Scandic Grand Place is still my nr 1 choice in Brussels. I have seen a lot of Brussels hotels and the quality is generally much lower for this price.

              I like that they encourage recycling (separation bins for trash, paper, drink bottles, etc), and that they encourage water conservation by 're- using' your towel more than once. Included breakfast buffet was nice....the only hotel of 5 across Europe that I stayed in that had 'hot' items (eggs, bacon) on the buffet. I was able to borrow an adapter for my electronics from front desk. Room had a mini fridge, but mine wasnt working. I found this out after, when I arrived on Saturday, I quickly threw something perishable in it, and went out sight seeing. Sunday morning, I discovered my item had spoiled because the fridge wasnt cold/working.. I reported it, but was told maintenance man wouldnt be in until Monday (I left Tuesday A.M.). However, she did offer me space in their 'downstairs' fridge if I needed it. You have to get a new 'Cloud' wi-fi username/password each day from the front desk. Internet was completely out on Easter Sunday (hotel wide). Hotel is about 1 5 minute east walk from train station, and about 1 minute walk to the entry of the Galleries.

              This sounds petty, but I disliked the shower. Not the pressure or the temperature, but it has one of those glass partitions that only covers about the first 1/3 of the tub, so anytime you shower, you wet most of the bathroom floor and the toilet --make sure you put the toilet roll out of harms way! ;)

              Clean room with a kettle. Nice breakfast with good choice of food.

              Wi-Fi connection was unreliable, did not connect sometimes.

              I liked the relation between price & location as that was what made me decided to go for it. Another reason was the free WiFi in the hotel. The location was great.

              To be honest we were quite pleased with all the aspects of the staying. The only two things I´d mention are that it was necessary to log in into internet everytime we got into the room, it wouldn´t log in automatically or remember the username and password previously submitted. The other one would be that the hairdryer in the bathroom was a bit old so it took a while to dry. But overall, we were quite happy to have chosen right.

              I like the location which is near the tourist spots.

              7.0

              We have arrived earlier than check-in time, but happily hotel made our accomodation immediately. Location of the hotel is very good, Grand Place or St. Michael Cathedral is just 2 minutes walk, gallery, shopping streets, restaurants. Hotel staff is polite and were pleased to help. Breakfast is excellent, good choice. You could always buy cold salads, rolls, water near reception later on. WiFi works nice. Kettle in the room was a real bonus, and tea bags were renewed each day.

              It was cold weather during our stay - just 8-10 degree above zero in May. And unfortunately, built-in heating system of the room was out of service, so it was uncomfortable in the room. Hotel offered us another room instead, however its heating was out too. It seems that all central system was shut down but staff said that they don't know anything about it. Happily, hotel offered us a small electric heater, for some reason it was a little bit noisy thing, but worked so the room became warmer. Bathroom had bad smell, sink was blocked up so the water was heavily flowed down. Instead of simple shower curtain, bath is equipped with inconvenient, absurd (and fragile/unsafe?) glass partition, which almost doesnt save the floor of the water when you have a shower - it is wet anyway after.. Unpleasntly, double bed is just two single beds joined together..

              Hallway carpet leading to room of Hotel was quite dirty and spotted .... gave disagreable apperance. Location was excellent thus would advise of situation to collegues.

              Near Central Station and away from crowds. Free wireless internet. Breakfast inclusive.

              Only Iron and ironing board available in top floor sauna room. a/c not too cool.

              Although it is a small hotel, it has everything that is needed for a hotel. It is a nice hotel in a good location. The breakfast is nice too.

              The air-con unit is not working for the whole hotel during our 2 days stay there. But luckily the weather in Brussels is cooling and we do not really rely on the air-con unit.

              Good location, decent food

              Telephone didn't work when I was trying to call the reception. It appeard that there was no contact in the outlet which was fixed by the barman (it was late afternoon). The lamp by the bad didn't work either which I found later. All these shows that the maintenance in this hotel does not work properly...
