Centrally located near some of the greatest attractions that Brussels has to offer, this charming hotel will take you back in time. Service is good, breakfast great (just a bit pricey), rooms are clean, quiet and spacious and have all the bells and whistles one needs to have for a comfortable stay. This hotel could use a bit of refreshing... More

The public spaces of this hotel look grand and they are grand. Our room was the complete opposite of grand. It was cold, the furniture was threadbare and the bathroom could have made a good public toilet. Staff were helpful in all regards including giving us an electric heater and extra blankets. The hotel is well located. I would not... More

Spend one night at the Metropole where I felt I was back in time and part of old grandeur. The ground floor is history in action with stained glass, marble and high ornate ceilings and open spaces. It has a really old world feel about it compared to many other Brussels hotels. The bar metropole dining area is beautiful offering... More

This hotel is a fantastic hotel. The staff are friendly and above all, it has so much character. The lift was probably one of the most fascinating part. The room was well decorated and a pleasure to stay in. There is nothing bad to say about this hotel. It is located well. Only 5 minutes walk to the square.

Stayed here for one night on business as hotels in EU District were coming in too expensive. The hotel is in city centre with a nice lobby (old world feel with stained glass windows and high ceilings). The room I had was on first floor and really nice. It was big and had a chandelier over the bed! The bathroom... More

Ideal location, with Central Station walkable in 15 mins. Everything clean and in good order. Splendid antique lift. Breakfast excellent. Sometimes difficult to attract the attention of waiters in the bar.

But having in mind its reach history and Art Deco design - one feels special to sleep in it. The breakfast is buffet with a big choice, staff nice and polite. Tip - have a kir... More
