“Best location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Usually when we go to Brussels we either stay her work the le meridian just a couple of blocks away. This ibis has been recently remodeled and is only a two minute walk from the grand place with a parking garage beneath. Reliably clean as with most ibis locations and great beer selection at the bar. You truly can't go wrong with this one.

Minutes walk from train station, near the Gran Place (difficult to find). Front desk helpful , room small for three, small window, standard furniture and bathroom without accessories.
Overall, standard room at a good location.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed in 2 adjoinging rooms a week before Christmas 2012. The hotel was in an ideal location just a street behind Grand Place and within walking distance to everything we wanted to do including the Christmas Market.
While staff were friendly and tried to be helpful they just seemed overstretched, the same guy was working reception and in the bar so service was slow.
Our rooms were ok (one being larger than the other), they were clean but basic. My only complaint would be the laminate floors in the rooms - other guests moving around or above made it sounds as if there was furniture being moved and there are no soft furnishings to deaden the noise!
If we went to Brussels again I would stay here but ask for a room with noone above.
Good value for money.

Stayed 1 night in Brussels Ibis off Grand Place in December. It was located minutes walk from the rail station. Right in the market place and within 5mins walk to the Grand-Place. Very strategic location. Service from the frontdesk were friendly and check in was swift.

Room was comfortable for 2 persons and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom comes with a small bathtub but the TV looks a bit traditional. Though we were facing the direction to the market place, except for some rowdy noise from the drinkers, the night was quiet and peaceful.

The only con side about the hotel was there was no free luggage depository offered from the hotel. There was the payable closets beside the breakfast area and can be quite costly.:(

Overall, a pleasant stay and experience with Ibis. Will consider to return to stay again next time in Brussels. Recommended for couples and backpackers.

Room Tip: Request for high floors facing the market where you can see the La Grand-Place.

I went to this hotel with great expectations, and only for one night on my way to Lyon, in order to meet with my Belgian friends. It is in such an amazing location; no regrets from that point of view. However, there is absolutely no indication out of the train station from the airport as to where Grasmarkt is (not the fault of the hotel, but upsetting). So, you have to walk around and ask.

I arrived early and they were generous enough to give me a room with 2 beds. You will not believe this, one of the beds was stuck from wall to wall (not one inch of clearance) in such a way that the only way to get in the room was to jump over one the beds! With bags?

I came down again and managed to wait a little while and get a room with a single bed, sleep, woke up and wanted to go to dinner with Belgian friends. In the bathroom there were corrugated wallpaper and previous guest had (I am disgusted to say that) cleaned their noses and left the boogers on the wall. I left for dinner, walked to the front desk and told them the story. I came back 3 hours later, my bathroom walls were half-cleaned. Too late to change rooms, but not too late to say that I do not mind in the future paying a little bit more, but I will never ever again stay at the Ibis Brussels off Grand Place.

I have to admit that my idea of Ibis Hotels was different up to that point, as I stayed 4 times in Ibis Ambassador, in downtown Seoul near CoEx, and have been not only pleased, but "impressed" with the maintenance and with the restaurant.

Room Tip: I cannot state that all rooms with double beds resemble exactly the one that I was given (one bed, b...
