... way we would have been able to do that when we were in Paris in July). We were seated in the table on the very far back right. Even from here (possibly the worst seats in the theatre) we still had a good view of the show, although it was difficult to see the very far right of the stage and sometimes we missed some of the show because of it. In the opening act, the boys and girls came out dancing dressed in sparkly silver suits and began dancing to music. Some of ...

... which was surprisingly small for such a famous icon. This is not the original statue but a copy as it frequently gets stolen. The statue has many outfits which it gets dressed in, however today it was dressed in the nude! There are many similar statues around the area and it is thought that they were once a landmark indicating a place where poor people could sell their urine to tanners who would using it ...

Santas on the tube!

... a possibility. We cheered up considerably when this turned out to the case and checked into the room with a feeling of relief. I hate arriving after dark and whilest in the daylight the area was ok at night it was a bit sinister.

Apathy settled on us and we decide to just eat locally rather than go into town (we are back here on the way home). This turned out to be a vaguely brave choice since all the restaurants and cafes seemed to ...

... comprised of a little boy peeing. If you're wondering why this is their self-established symbol, I'm in the same boat. I've heard talk of Belgians employing a stricter sense of self-mockery than even Canadians, which is quite an accomplishment (if I may be so bold as to use the word). Having worked up an appetite, we walked back to where the jazz band had played. Jesse bought a Belgian waffle, and I bought a bowl of fries loaded in ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Scandinavia Hotel Anderlecht

    Moyen

    from

    hôtel qui parait très joli de l'extérieur, le bar et la salle de repas sont corrects mais les chambres ne sont pas accueillante, il ne mérite pas d'être un 3 étoiles. De plus lors de notre arrivée nous avons du être accueilli dans un autre hotel : le rivoli pour des raisons pas très compréhensible (de l'eau sur la moquette de la chambre). L'hôtel n'est pas très bien situé (loin du centre, loin de la ligne de tram). Par contre l'hôtel Tivoli est très sympa, bien situé avec une super ambiance, c'est un deux étoiles qui le mérite.

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE

    from

    If you want to be robberd or stay up all night because of the noise coming from a very very busy street in that case you should definately stay in this hotel.

    Otherwise STAY AWAY!

    Very Nice Hotel, Great Location near to the Metro, Bus & Tram

    from

    Very Good Location. It is minutes from the Metro station (Clemencau) and the Bus 20 & Tram 83 stops. It is about 15 minute walk to the Midi Station.

    Very good room & bathroom, clean and comfortable.

    There is an inhouse bar area and breakfast, lunch & dinner is available.

    The breakfast was a very good continental style with juice, cereals, yougart, boiled eggs, cheese and ham, fresh rolls, jam, fresh fruit, cake and plenty of coffee and tea.

    I would recommend this hotel to friends and business colleagues. Yes, I will stay there again.

    Okay if it was relocated

    from

    My partner and I had a great time in Brussels, the only disapointment was this hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the food is good. The problem was the area. It is in a very impoverished area of the city and a ways from the Grand Place. You can take the underground to the centre easily but after dark this proves a problem. We were actually told by well-meaning staff not to walk outdoors after dark as an elderly couple staying there had been mugged that evening. This meant that every evening we either had to retire early or take a taxi back. One afternoon on the way back to the hotel I actually witnessed a man on the train dipping into an unknown woman's handbag! The room was clean enough, but fairly spartan. It is a good deal for the price so the more robust traveler might not be put off. For us, we prefer not having to spend so much energy on being safety conscious when on holiday.

    The crap hotel

    from

    when we stayed at this hotel we thought we was getting value for money. how wrong we was when we got there. the room was unclean very cold dirty and smelled of poo poo! we was right next to a very busy and noisy street. there was also a very noisy morrocan social club opposite which was open all night. It was about 40mins walk to the grand place when we was told it was 5mins. The neighbourhood was very rough, dirty and run down. o yes the breakfast was very poor and not much to choose from. i would not recommend this hotel to anyone and also we will not be staying there ever again. hopefully you wont to either and if you do good luck to you!

    Very helpful staff, nice hotel

    from

    A few of us stayed at the Scandinavia during a week there was a football match in Anderlecht. The hotel was very clean, check in was speedy despite the numbers of check in's over the couple of days, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable.

    I can't believe the poor reviews of some other travellers as I have no criticisms of the hotel at all. The staff were very friendly and more helpful than in most hotels I've stayed at.

    The Scandinavia is not within walking distance of the Grand Place, but it is only a short taxi ride of between 5-7 euro's, or a few stops on the metro which is a couple of minutes' away.

    Would definitely stay there again. Excellent value for money.

    Worst Hotel EVER

    from

    The Hotel Scandinavia, Chausee de Mons 115-117, Brussels, Belguim.

    The mattress was EXTREMELY LUMPY.

    The BEDBUGS ATE US ALIVE all night.

    A NEEDLE from the mattress STUCK ME.

    A WATER pipe DRIPPED in the wall behind our bed all night.

    The room had a moldy, sour SMELL.

    This property should be clean up or taken off everyone's website. It's unhealthy and unsafe.

    Beware large groups of teenagers

    from

    Hotel in a problem area but only at night. This required an early supper to get back before nightfall as Taxis were a rip off as in any major city.

    Good value for money

    from

    I don't agree wholly with the member from the Netherlands who stayed at the Scandinavia in April. I found the room clean and tidy and situated at the back of the hotel very quiet. Not much of an outlook and the area round about is rather rundown.

    No problems with locks on doors or dirty loos. I agree with the comments about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, and the buffet breakfast was excellent.

    There is a tube station (Clemenceau) about five minutes walk away, but we preferred a taxi (7 euros to Midi station and about 10 euros to the town centre).

    As a tourist you have to watch it late in the evening anywhere in Brussels, so don't walk around swinging a handbag.

    Hotel Scandinavia is nowhere near Scandinavia

    from

    I have no Idea where this hotel got its name from, but its deffinately nowhere near Scandinavia, more like Northern Africa. Very far from the city center and a bit more than kilometer away from the train station. Metro station is quite close though and is surrounded by ample amounts of very cheap internet cafeterias (1 euro for an hour) and snack bars (2 euro sandwiches). Very close is also a big market place where you can find anything from cheap socks and old CD players to meat and souveniers.
