Close to both the Grand Place and the business district, the St. Nicolas Hotel is a two-star property that provides a good value for the buck.
Its 60 guest rooms are connected by bright and carpeted hallways. Their peachy walls and light wooden flooring are cheerful, and many doubles and triples are generously proportioned. Some singles, however, can be tight and even drab. Furniture is ostensibly ‘80s, with flimsy wooden panels and black plastic. While the rooms get plenty of sunlight, they also get noise from the street below. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, and each room has a television. The bathrooms are well-lit and equipped with toiletries and hairdryers.
Outside, the St. Nicolas blends into the adjoining office buildings on the bustling Rue du Marché-aux-Poulets, and you could easily walk by without noticing that it’s a hotel. That convenient location is a huge draw, though. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the major sights, but if you choose not to walk, you can rent one of the electric bikes on-property for €10 a day. Another draw? The St. Nicolas is one of the few Brussels hotels to hold an Eco Dynamique certification.
Breakfast in included and served in the plant-filled downstairs dining room.

About the Hotel Saint Nicolas neighborhood
The undisputed tourist epicenter of Brussels, Grote Markt, or Grand Place, is an impressive square facing the medieval Town Hall. The always lively neighborhood is sprinkled with hotels, cutesy cafés, restaurants and chocolate shops. A maze of cobblestoned alleys leads to the opera house, a commercial drag or the gay district, depending on which turn you take.
