Historic yet modern hotel in the center of Brussels
The Eurostars Grand Place Hotel, set in a 19th century, neo-classical style building with a handsome façade, offers guests close proximity to the famous Grand Place and the historical city center UNESCO World Heritage Site. The exterior classicism contrasts with the modern, minimalist interior decor. Beige marble lines the central atrium, which is illuminated by skylight and warmed by a fireplace. Adding delight to the stay is the famous Cocoa and Chocolate Museum, just 500 m from the hotel's front door.

Nice location, Great Price, Not an Oasis but Good enough

The Exe Grand Place hotel is conveniently located next to the major tourist area in Brussels and public transit. It is located on the road that links the North and South train stations. Yet, only a 10 minute walk from the Central Station. It is about a 2-3 minute walk from the Bourse metro station, about 6-8 minutes from De Brouckere, and there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel. A lot of good restaurants are in the area. Compared to other hotels of equal quality, the Exe Grande Place is a Great Deal. The downside is that the single rooms are small albeit adequate. The bed is very firm (similar to those you tend to get in Japan) but luckily, they do give you extra pillows. A plus is that each room has its own AC control, even though the lobby might not be climate controlled. The rooms DO NOT smell like smoke unlike other Brussel hotels that share a common climate control system or have recently been converted. The internet is just okay... suitable but not extraordinary. I had no connection issues and the WiFi signal was strong, just don't expect to stream movies. There are English TV stations contrary to another review. The TV has two remotes, one for the channel tuner, one to turn on the TV. If you don't catch this you might have a problem as noted by others. I had no problem at all with the TV but since it is a satellite TV service from time to time the signal for some of the channels gets distorted as the signal quality fluctuates throughout the day. Overall, this is a good, clean, well located hotel. The hotel may also offer extra comforters or something else to provide more comfort with respect to the beds. I did not ask, since I did not think it was too bad, but the beds are harder than those in the Novotel, Holiday Inn, and Windsor. This hotel would make a good home base for tourists and business travelers (I was on business). It is of much greater quality than others in its price class and is very well located. There is also lots of shopping nearby, but not much room in refridgerator in the room, since it is filled mini-bar style. Ammenities: Your standard toiletries, coffee/tea (instant), mini-bar, multi-language TV, shoe polish kit, fan, restaurant, optional breakfast, great help with tourist options, good & useful map of the area with hotel location.

great value and location

The location is fantastic and the hotel was very nice for the price. The two complaints I have are the extra-firm mattresses were less than inviting, and the guy at the front desk was pretty much a total jerk. Get past those two things, and Eurostars is a very good value.

Great spot for value and central locatio

They have free wifi, are centrally located, and I paid $75 USD per night, which was way cheaper than any other hotel of faaar less quality anywhere near by. The staff was helpful and the beds/bathrooms were decent. The room was clean... I stayed there on two different trips

Not a 4 star hotel

I think this was mis-listed as a 4 star hotel. Probably more of a two. Non-functioning toilet. Non-cotton sheets. Room was big, but not well laid out. Interior rooms are extreemely noisy in the morning as the sounds of dishes clattering in the breakfast area carry up through the atrium. Management in general does not do a good job of controlling noise in the area.
