If you put "rue van Schoor" 1030 Bruxelles into google you will get a map showing you exactly where it is, which is in the partly Turkish/Moroccan area beyond the Gare du Nord and not far from Place Liedts (not marked on the map, btw but it's the yellow triangle).

In terms of distance from the GP, there are trams from Rogier that call at Gare du Nord and then go under the railway bridge (yellow-coloured road) you can see on the google map, and from Gare du Nord you are 3 tram/(pre-)metro stops from Bourse, which is right by the Grand' Place.

St. Catherine would be closer to the GP and more convenient as a place to stay, although the Welcome Hotel is better placed next to the metro station and always seems to score well with TA users (see under Brussels Hotels on the left).
