Excellent location, good value for money

Checked in for EU meeting. Friendly and warm welcome, excellent location just meters from Central Station. Easy access to EU Institutions using Metro - again just meters from Hotel. At the same time Grand Place and city center on the door step of the hotel. Generous breakfast in morning a bonus. Single room was small with single bed but had all the facilities required including free Wi-Fi access.

Great location

I loved the location of this hotel. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and the bar area open at night with the t.v was great. The staff was average on the helpful side. My complaint was no dresser in the room to unpack suitcase. Closet so small only one suitcase fit in it..the room was dated very very small....no floor space to put suitcase.

good but needs improvements

I went to Bruxelles for tourism and business. The Scandic has a great location for that, just five minutes away form the central station and the "Grand Place". Service was nice, breakfast too (a large buffet of eggs and bacon and beans, fruits, pastries, cold cuts, cheeses, breads, cereals), and the sauna is pleasant to use after a long day. A few issues, though : no coffe/tea machine in the rooms (you have to pay a 15 dollars supplement for that, which includes some other stuff such as a bathrobe, or get it the bar), the beds were so so (quite old?), the bathroom was not extra clean (some pink mold between the tiles - nothing dramatic but not spotless). Also, the breakfast menu never changes, and it is impossibole to get more than some coffee if you have to leave before 6 am. If you bring a surprise guest, expect to pays 20 additional euros per day for the breakfast.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Brussels metro is very easy to navigate. They have lots of agents who speak English and are very helpful. So, venture out of the city center and see it all!

Awesome

If I have to nitpick, I would say that I felt a bit rushed at breakfast due to the waiter cleaning my table while I was still drinking my coffee and was considering a second going at the gorgeous breakfast buffet. But again, that's nitpicking, because I simply could have continued my breakfast and take another table.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

This is not a tip but more of warning; the hotel is in walking distance of "Rue des bouchers", the (in)famous little strip of restaurants. It looks cute but beware because a lot of these restaurants will lure you in with specials which all of a sudden become unavailable once you're sitting at your table.

Great location

The hotel is in a very good location, near one of the famous "passages" of the city. Water faucet and sink had issues -- they were however resolved.

Comfortable, clean and helpful

My husband and I loved our stay at the Scandic! All staff was very helpful, our room was clean (not huge, but we didn't spend much time there do it was fine, and as expected for a European hotel. The location is amazing- blocks from the train station (even w big rolling suitcases) and RIGHT in the middle of everything you want to see in Brussels. There is a locked baggage room available if you need to drop off bags before checkin, or are wandering for awhile after checkout. Free wifi, breakfast (good, very European style)... Just stay here. Trust me. :)
