In Which Area of Brussels (city) Should I Stay?

We are in Brussels for 2 days and want to know which area of the city is a good, central place to stay where we can see all the attractions. We were planning on visiting: Grand Palace, Sabon, Mannekin Pis, St. Michael's and St. Gudula cathedrals, Cantillion Brewery and some chocolatiers. Can we go by foot to all these places or do we have to use public transportation?

If you stay in one of the hotels around Central Station you can do most of these places on foot.

Btw, it is the Grand Place and Sablon; the others you will not find on a map.

I agree. The area around Gare Central/Sablon is probably best for everything you mention. Anything further out is easily accessible by public transport - train/tram/bus.

Check out recent TA topics on the subject of central accommodation.

I recommend a taxi to and from Cantillon. There is nothing to see on the walk there and it isn't the best area. If you do walk, try not to get lost.
