First time at an Ibis, so no basis for comparison there, but we wanted a moderately priced, well located, very clean place to stay for 11 days as we explored Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, and Antwerp, The Ibis Sainte Catherine fit the bill in all aspects, and also had very comfortable beds and spotless bedding, albeit tired towels. It is just around the corner from the Christmas market and Metro station at the Place Ste. Catherine, which offers side-by-side restaurant options. And it is a 10-minute walk from the Grand Place. I would skip the breakfast offering and go to Sara's Id, just around the corrner, where a very nice breakfast can be had for just 5 euro. And as a suggestion to the hotel, a few coat hooks on the outside of the very small closet would greatly enhance storage at minimal cost, especially in the wintertime when coats are a problem. As for the maps mentioned by others, I didn't think 0.50 euro was unreasonable for something that was useful throughout our stay. We found the hotel staff unfailingly polite, even under adverse conditions; I noticed that Amber, especially, was unflappable even under the pressure of long lines waiting to check out and argumentative outgoing guests.
