Well-located mid-priced hotel
This is an older Scandic, due for renovation soon. Rooms are typcially small, and those facing the street can be quite noisy from traffic. Central heat means it can get warm iinsde when it isn't so cold outside. Rooms are clean, Euro-style bedding, tv, phone, minibar, trouser press, closet, safe, shower-bath. Downstairs "Eken Brasserie" restaurant offers Continental food, and a full-range breakfast buffet is inluded with the rates.
Unique Quality: The hotel is 3 blocks from Centrale rail station, and a quick walk from the Jean-Pierre Cluysenaar - designed St. Hubert Galleries and the Rue des Bouchers and its many restaurants. Around the corner is the archtypical Belgian pub "La Morte Subite" with its many ales and brews, and the Manniking Pis and Grand Place are a few minutes by foot. This is a welcoming hotel with location, location and location, in the Scandic tradition (Hilton HHonors members can bok for a mere 10,000 points!)
