We stayed at the Scandic Grand Place for 3 nights in Feb.The hotel is a bit old and not as grand as it looks in the hotel's website but it was very clean and spacious.the best part abt the hotel was the location.it was walking distance from the Centraal Station as well as the Grand Place and some of the museums.The staff were helpful and nice.I would definitely recommend this hotel to others if not for anything else for the lovely breakfast spread:)

Unique Quality: location,breakfast

Directions: walking distance from the centraal station

Well located hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 26, 2006

It is a 3 star modern hotel with a listed facade.
Good size rooms which were clean.
My only disappointment was the service provided by the staff which is not one you would expect from a 3 star hotel: staff at the counter were young, did not look confident and were not professionaly dressed. When it comes to the staff working at the breakfast, they could do with a smile and a more welcoming approach. This gave the hotel a somewhat cold atmosphere.
But the location made it up!l

Unique Quality: Great location as it is near the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert leading to the main shopping area. It is also just one street away from the cafe Mort Subite and Saint Michael's cathedral.

Directions: We decided to walk from Midi station (where you get the Eurostar and Thalys services) which is 2 kilometres from the hotel. The signage outside the railway station is really poor, and you'd better ask your way.

A Brown Room!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 25, 2005

If you love the colour brown, you will be in your element here. Unfortunately I’m not at all keen on it and my lasting memory of this place is of how brown it was! The room we had was quite compact and lit for relaxation; this, compounded by the fact that our internal room overlooked the hotel's dimly lit atrium rather than the street, added to the effect and my eyes felt just so hungry for something light bright and colourful that I even asked my friend to hang her pink shirt on the outside of the wardrobe! We tried this but, to be honest, even that just reflected all the brown around us! To add insult to injury, we found, prominently displayed on the dressing table, a brochure detailing the chain’s other branches, all of which seemed as light and airy as the Scandinavian name might lead you to expect. This said, the room and bathroom were clean and the beds were comfortable. We didn’t eat at the hotel during our stay.

We found the hotel very well located for our sightseeing, as we could walk easily to many of the things we had planned to see and the street we were in was very quiet, so we weren’t disturbed at night. Having arrived by Eurostar, however, we did get a little lost trying to find the hotel from the nearest metro stop; we hadn’t a good map and, as the entrance wasn’t obvious from the street, the people we stopped for directions hadn’t heard of it, although it was in fact very close by, which made it easy for us to travel to other areas of the city too.

Directions: Central Station is 200 metres away for a direct train connection to Brussels Airport (just 20 minutes.)
The Midi Station, 2 km away, has connections with Eurostar and Thalys.
