Just read the review below and oddly I got double bookings for one room Something definitely wrong with their system. I did not go through internet rate provider, I booked through a company travel agent. They did reverse my second billing but I didn't like the way the desk clerk made me feel like I did something wrong. its obviously...

What a great Hotel! Excellent room, staff and breakfast. Positives: Beautiful, lavish, large rooms (well they upgraded us to a suite so it was huge). Excellent staff to help with all of your needs. Great breakfast buffet. Location - Quiet location in safe area within walking distance to historic sights and EU. Negatives: In a more modern (architecture wise) area...

We stayed in this hotel for a weekend city trip. Great location 2 mins walk from metro and busses. Clean room, we were upgraded to a suite with bedroom upstairs and separate bathroom + living room downstairs. Very very quiet. We had breakfast included in the package as well, and sauna/exercise room is free of charge (thought we didnt have...

Hotel meets its five stars by all means. We were checked-in with a smile. Room was spacious, with king-size double bed, spacious bathroom with seperate shower and bath. Toilet in a seperate room. Room well equiped, even a take-a-long umbrella for outside walks was there. On-premises parking space is a bit expensive (€ 27,50 per night) and you have to...

My experience in the Stanhope was quite perfect. Through a Dutch booking website (bookit) I had an arrangement with upgrade to a mini-suite, breakfast included, a free drink and late check-out till 5 PM and all of that was exactly what made this stay so fantastic. I had asked for a quiet room with no neighbours and I got just...

Good location with connections by metro – and walking distance (1.5 km to EU offices). Fairly quiet side street. Classy restaurant and posh restaurant. Breakfast not included and very expensive (25 EUR). Had a mini-suite with two tiny rooms. Strange layout with shower built into bedroom and a minuscule wc without even a washbasin. WLAN not included.

Hotel is great. Perhaps not a five star but i had no complaints. The location isn't the best and it is expensive.

During my business life (+32 years) I have stayed in many, many hotels all over the world. The Stanhope hotel does NOT merit it's 5 star rating. If there is anyone out there who has paid the advertised room rate of €520,- we may be speaking of theft.. We spend a few days in the Ardennes and decided to close...

Spent a Aprl weekend here with my GF, and was impressed by the nice hotel and it's friendly staff. We had a very nice standard room with a large bathroom, nicely decorated in classic style.

We booked the holiday in Feb and the room was in special Easter promotion; it was a great value including fantastic breakfast, the staffs are friendly and helpful! The welcome fruit is next to the left before you arrive your room; the standard room we had is clean and comfortable, just like 5 starts hotel you can expect.
