The Grand Place is absolutely beautiful. During the day or at night it is a must see when you visit Brussels. I will definitely return to the square next time I pass through. The kids loved all the ice cream and waffles shops nearby.

Grand Palace is the #1 spot to visit when you're in Brussels,In my honest opinion its better at night because it has a ton of bars and restaurants. I will sure come again one day.

I thought this place was breathtaking, beautiful buildings and markets. There is also a few museums around to visit. We didn't spend much time here, so i would advise that you have other plans and places to visit in the area.

Ibis Brussels in Grand Palace is a 3 star hotel. It's not that expensive and people seem to like it.
