I stayed at Scandic twice, in November 2010 and again in November 2013. The hotel is ideally situated in the city center. The atmosphere is also rather nice and it's relatively modern compared to what Brussels has to offer. The rooms are very small, which is just fine for a night or two. The breakfast is also satisfactory. The first... More

This is a good, clean and centrally located hotel. Great service from the reception staff. The room is basic and slightly small, but comfortable, even if some of the rooms don't have window out, but to the inner court/reception area. Good beds, and nice bath with bath tub. The gym is decent, but could have included a few more machines,... More

The Scandic Grand Place is an average hotel in a very good location. The rooms are comfortable but there is very little natural light in those facing inwards so it is always gloomy. The bar is very average and we found the beer a bit tangy. breakfast was basic but good. Didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening. The... More

This hotel is not bad, the service of the staff is very good and the price is right too, the location is excellent. You can notice that there is a bit of age to it but then again, its located in the historic city center, so i was more or less satisfied with my choice to stay there. It located... More

I just came back from a four night stay at this hotel and it was OK as an overall experience. Nothing major to complain about but nothing really to admire (except the perfect location). I will try to be as subjective as possible by listing the advantages and disadvantages: Advantages 1 - Perfect location. Couldnt get any better. close to... More

I and some friends have just spent two nights at this hotel. It is described as a four star but in our opinion it is no more than a three star. The location is fantastic in the centre of Brussels and a short walk from the Central Railway Station, The breakfast that is offered is very good but the standard... More

If you want to stay at the city centre, enjoy Nordic minimalism and low profile service, this is your choice. Yes, the street is dim and the Central Station not as functioning and clean as at home but due to branding this feels like home. Touristic area for a busy first time visitor. Overpriced, yes. But you are in the... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. Not because it is particularly pleasant, but because it is centrally located, reliable and reasonably affordable. The concept is designed for business travellers, who only need to spend limited time in the hotel. Most rooms are small and somewhat claustrophobic with very limited access to daylight. If you only need a bed... More

Generally, the rooms are pretty small, and the bathrooms are not very nice in some cases. I've stayed here a few times on business trips. The first time I was here, I realised that while the breakfast is tolerable, dinner is best found elsewhere. The food my colleague and I tried was most likely bought in it's finished form, and...
