Being the only hotel on Brussel's Grand Place, it has the best position you could find in the whole city. But beware: if they say that the room has a view to the rear, they mean it (and, btw, having the nice panorama doubles the price). Mine was quite small, with only one small window and old furniture - a bit claustrophobic, if you can't stand tiny spaces. Bathroom was alright, with the shower hose fixed high on the wall (something I personally hate) and the ventilation fan missing (but it might be that they had moved it to the top of the pipe, to avoid noise - anyway steam from the shower was taken out from the room).
In any case everything seemed quite clean (although there was no bed cover on the blanket). After a sound, natural (i.e. not alcohol- or drug-induced) night sleep, I could have breakfast (pretty varied) while observing the square on a cloudless morning. Very good service from the helpful reception personnel and a good wi-fi connection, all for a fair price, so I was overall quite satisfied by my stay.
The point is: within a stone's throw there are better value for money hotels (at least, when not booked last minute). So, if you don't mind walking a little bit, you'd better shop around. If, instead, you wish to surprise someone with the location, you certainly are at the right place.
Sleeping in a Unesco World Heritage site can be impressive - if you are sensitive to it, that is.
