Nice Central area, great for a visit for a couple of hours. Good beer, Frites and Waffles :) Worth going if in Brussels.

Beautiful area. Very busy, and very touristy, but still beautiful and worth seeing. Go further away for food and drinks, although the food is good right there, you can get food just as good and also better for half the price!

I haven’t been to Grand Place for 17 years and when I back, the place is still impressive. With the group, we have a beer tasting at one of the beer museum and it’s fantastic. I went alone to the chez Leon to eat mussels...More

I could stand there for hours and just look at the buildings. Gorgeous, stunning, beautiful, no words can adequately described it. If you see a red umbrella that says free tours, do it !!

Just spent 4 days as tourists in Brussels. The Grand Place is the center of activity and surrounded by bars and restaurants. We took several walking tours and the general feeling is to go several blocks outside the tourist zone to eat. We found 4...More

This square is a not miss when staying in Brussels. Although there's nothing really to do, the building facades are quite nice. Lots of shopping around but also a lot of other tourists. Go there and stay as long as you want.

Yes you can go at central taking metro 1-5 one stop. You can go also to Bourse taking the tram 3-4 ( pre metro) one stop. From your hotel is 10 min walk for the Bourse and Gare Centrale.
