Cheap hotels in Marolles, Brussels
Located five minutes south of the Grand Place, Marolles is a lone Flemish neighborhood in the middle of Brussels. Once a medieval leprosy colony, the neighborhood's insalubrious reputation continued well into the 1990s, thanks to high (by Belgian standards) crime rates. However, all that is changing faster than you can pronounce “gentrification.” Today, thanks to an abundance of shops and bars, Marolles is one of the most sought-after addresses among the city’s trendsetters. The famous flea market at the Place du Jeu de Balles is a favorite activity for both locals and tourists.
