We stayed at the Hotel Opera in June, and found that it was comfortable and in a good location. It’s just around the corner from the Grand Place, and has loads of nearby restaurants. It’s quite a small place, and the rooms aren’t huge, but they have everything you need. The rooms were clean, and we thought the breakfast was...

We stayed for one night in this hotel. THe staff is helpful, and the room was not bad at all! with a bathroom and tv in the room and the bed was arlight too. Not the cleaniest from what I could tell, and it's very informal so don't expect anything too fancy. Also, for a 2 star we also had...

Room smelled like cigarrette smoke on and off. As if the person working the front desk was smoking periodically thru the night. When ask to change rooms the next night, we were told to open a window. First of all, it is January. Second, I am not paying for a room to smell like smoke. We were told that we...

This hotel has an excellent location in the very heart of Brussels. The Grand Place is at few minutes walking and dozens of restaurants are just meters around. Of course, don't go there for a rest in silence. This is a place for having fun and an excellent base for visits. The building is old but the room was refurbished...

Hotel Opera is a good value for money budget hotel. The interior is dated but clean and we didnt find our room noisey at all. The location is right in a main restaurant area very close to the Grand Place and central train station, we found it very convienent being able to walk just about everywhere. The only small down...

My husband and I stayed here based on the review in Eyewitness Travel. It is a well run, clean hotel with a great breakfast, and the price is good. The rooms are small, and the elevator is the smallest I've ever seen, but it's in Brussels at a good price, so let's not get greedy. My major complaint is that...

I stayed here in part due to its listing in Rick Steves book, but also from TA. I have to say that this is the first time that I have been led astray by either. IMO, this is a place for backpackers who are not fussy about cleanliness; in fact, there were many rooms packed with noisy backpackers (I'm not...

What a fabulous location! We were so pleased with everything about this hotel. We requested two "courtyard" rooms, a double for my husband and me, and a triple for our three 20-22 year olds, and even with the window open found it pretty quiet. The room was clean, large by European standards, and huge, sparkling bathroom. The bed was comfortable,...
