We went to Brussels a week for Christmas in 2012 to sample the yuletide festive season in Belgium. We booked the Ibis off Grand Place and did not know what to expect until we arrived. It was about 10 minutes taxi ride from the Central Station. On arrival, the check in was quick and we were given a room on the 1st floor. There is a lift, small bar, and a dining room where breakfast is served. There is quite a good selection for breakfast - there is fruit juices, cereal, cold meat and yogurt, varieties of bread, bacon, sausages, and scrambled egg.
The room is not big but adequate, clean and comfortable. We had no complaint and definitely made a good choice.
The location is fantastic, within walking distances to the Grand Place, restaurants and shops.
There was a Christmas market near the Grand Place and a bigger one st St Catherine's square with an ice skating rink and Big Wheel. (Note: we were there in December so the Christmas market was there).
We had a nice time in Brussels. There is plenty of seafood, Belgium beers and wait....... chocolate! We have not seen so many chocolateries in one place. It is almost heaven for chocolates lovers. They are so yummy and delicious and so many varieties.
We will definitely stay at the Ibis again when next in Brussels.
