the best aspect may be its location just 10 minutes walk from Grand Place. Inside there is much to admire in its art deco lobby. the rooms are traditional and spacious but not that well maintained. our bathroom in 4017 had a peeling damp bath panel and what was annoying was the location of the shower on the side wall,...

Excellent old hotel in the historical center of Brussels. Friendly staff, tasty and versatile breakfasts. Rooms are large, sunny and clean. I had free minibar use (2 water, 2 coca-cola and 2 beers daily). Internet works quite well

An historical building, good services, but the hotel must be refurbished inside the rooms immediately. The bathroom sometime is bigger than the room, clean and renovated. But the room is very poor in quality. Please choose a room with outside view.

Spectacular foyer reminiscent of old world 5 star glamour hotels. In fact, this hotel really is old school in most respects, but that doesn't make it a bad hotel by any means. Great location, really close to centre square of Brussels and main tourist/shopping area i.e. 3 mins walk. We had a superior room, it was spacious, big comfy bed,... More

The common areas of this hotel (reception, bar, breakfast area) do look grand, however that does not continue in the rooms. In my room the bathroom was new, but for example the bathroom door was not, the bottom of the door frame was rotting away and the hooks in the door for towels were breaking out. Furniture in the room... More

This hotel has the same style of an impoverished nobleman. Great location, great environment, great service but investments cannot be delayed anymore. The hotel is situated in the center of Brussels, the building is classical style and the hall and all other common parts let you breeze the air of two centuries ago. The elevator (even if terribly uncomfortable) is... More

We recently stayed here for 5 nights. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here. The people at the front desk and concierge desk, were more than helpful.

The Metropole hotel screams old world five star class; the foyer and entry area is just beautiful - and its renovation is continuing. First and foremost the staff were fantastic, "Johnny" in the bar was very helpful and generous with his knowledge of the hotel - which he clearly takes great pride in, and the local area. His information on... More
