This is the can't-miss of Brussels. The architecture, the gold ornamentation, and the overall ambience are the best in the entire city.

The buildings here are amazing because they’re so old. But it just feels so commercial. Shops line the plaza and the area around it feels scummy.

It's not grans in the sense of big, but the ornate buildings of this square are well worth a look. Places to drink as you drink in the view.

Didn't really know what to expect in Brussels. Was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed my time there. Grand place is awesome. Being in the Square (at dusk) felt magical. Great food, great shopping, just an all around great place to hang out.

The city center is great and the beer compliments it nicely. Restaurants are everywhere and waffles!

A beautiful central point for the city. Loads to see by day or night. Plenty of places to eat in square or in lanes off it.

The buildings around the place are nice. Especially with sunshine one finds many interesting views. There are always lots of tourists. In the streets around one finds many restaurants includung local ones which are good for having lunch or dinner.

Thank Andreas W

Ibis Brussels in Grand Palace is a 3 star hotel. It's not that expensive and people seem to like it.
