Yes, it's location is about perfectly close to the Grand Place and the price shows it. My wife and I had a room on the top floor. Getting into bed on my side took turning sideways and bending over (low slanted ceiling that scraped my elbows). The ceiling has a massive brown area (leaking roof?), shredded curtains on both (tiny) windows, many apparently newly laid bathroom floor tiles were cracked (going the cheap way?). Lobby is fairly large but mostly (all day) dedicated to breakfast setup. No availability of soft drinks or ice cubes anywhere. Several desk staff appeared unhelpful and rather not bothered (my wife asked in the lobby for a glas of water to take her medication. Answer: "We do not provide room service"). No, this does not meet the standard for a 3-star hotel (perhaps 1 1/2?).
