As many others have mentioned, the Ibis hotel is a stone's throw from Grand Place and a superb location to explore the city.
Rooms are functional, clean and in the end a place to sleep is what you are getting and should not really be a surprise when you arrive.
My wife and I stayed two nights to explore Brussels for the first time and to visit the Christmas markets.
Stayed in Room 140 which was on the first floor and immediately to the left of the lift doors. Subsequently there could be a bit of noise first thing in the morning and in the evening with people entering/exiting the lifts.
The room does have a second door to close one presumes to deal with this problem but there is not enough room to close it - see picture attached. Not a great problem as we always travel with ear plugs!
Breakfasts in the morning are buffet continental or hot bacon, sausage, scambled eggs or baked beans. More than adequate to set you up for the day. Our breakfasts were included in our package and if paying separately, would possibly pay for convenience, but certainly not difficult to walk a few paces from the hotel to find something else.
We found Ibis off Grand Place to be a superb place, friendly staff and our room to our expectations.
