Scandic Hotel Grand Place
Ranked #111 of 198 Hotels in Brussels
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The hotel is acceptable. However, it desperately needs a clean up - carpets were dirty-, bathrooms were not as clean as should be. Small rooms, decent breakfast. However, due to its excellent location it results to be a "good value for money".

I have stayed in this hotel before in a standard room and was very happy with it. The location was wonderful so I did not even look at any other hotels. This time I chose a superior room and of course was expecting a room which was a little bit better. Unfortunately the room was not better at all. We ended up in a room on the top hotel floor which had Gym directly above it. Early in the morning 5-6am we could hear the noise of someone using the walking machine and the bouncing ball. The room had a small window too high up to see anything but the sky and the roof of the building on the opposite side of the street. The room was very small and dark. The bathroom was also small and dark with water pressure absolutely pathetic. The fridge in our room did not work, so we reported it to the front desk. They sent someone in at 23:00 when we were already in bed and even that we had "do not disturb sign" on the door he still opened the door with his key and tried to force his way in. He checked if the fridge was plugged into the power… Great, like this was not the obvious thing to check! The next day they sent the electrician... and we found out that the fridge was switched off from the hotel’s computer… And by the way we saw the man that was sent in the middle of the night to check our fridge working in the breakfast room the next morning. He did not even acknowledge our existence. I guess we looked so much different in our pyjamas and without makeup he did not recognise us.
By the way we did ask for a different room but were told that there were two conferences on at the hotel and they had no other rooms available.
As much as I liked this hotel before, I don’t think I will be staying there the next time I’m in Brussels.

Room Tip: Any floor but the top floor below the gym!

The best thing for me was, that the room had a bath (bubbles, bubbles!) and a free Wi-Fi connection, plus, breakfast was included unlike most hotels around Europe. I'm not that demanding, because hotels are mostly for sleeping, not hanging around, but that long bath really saved one of my days when I walked around Brugge for hours and needed to relax.

Small but nice room with modern amenities. Free wi-fi and small refrigerator. Great breakfast with numerous options and beverages. We especially wish to thank Yaroslav Soroko, one of the breakfast attendants, for his exceptional service and friendly attitude. He made sure all of our needs were met. The hotel's location is within a short walking distance to the Grand Place, to Brussels Central Station, and to most attractions. The city is extremely safe to walk in, even after midnight. Our 9-day visit was even more pleasurable than we could have imagined.

Room Tip: Make sure to specify whether you want a double bed or two twin beds when making your reservation. Yo...

The hotel was good, not great. The breakfast was excellent. I stayed in a Scandic in Finland which had a great breakfast. The rooms were a little old with the bed a little soft. The carpets in the hallways were dirty. The was a computer for use.

Nice hotel in the heart of Brussels. Walking distance from all attractions. Decent breakfast. Vey fast WiFi. Not a 4 star hotel, in my opinion, but a good 3 star. The carpets need to be changed and the whole image will be improved. Definetely value of money hiotel.

We have chosen this hotel for its location. The hotel is situated by the Central Station and that was what we needed.We wanted to travel to other Belgian cities by train.Breakfast was good. The room was also ok and clean. The staff was helpful and gave us some useful suggestions.
The weather was very hot and we were glad to have an air condition in our room.
