Pros: Beautiful, historical
The hotel is beautiful and historical. City construction in front but they are apologetic. They supplied hearing aids. We had no trouble traveling on the weekend there was no work. Right by metro and centrally located.

Beautiful old "grande dame"

Pros: The history and decor
Cons: The breakfast sevice
Location: Good location to metro and sites
The hotel is over 100 years old. The lobby is stately and grand! The overall service was adequate but not exemplary. One exception was the cafe Metropole, ther service there was very good. The price for the breakfast (28 euro) was a little steep. I think they could get more volume with a lessor price. The service for breakfast was terrible. I was told that I got 2 free bottles of water, coca colas and 2 beers each day in my mini bar. This service stopped on July 1; the last two days of my stay were without these amenities. The air conditioner was not effective; I spent a sleepless night on my last night. Overall, the stay was adequate; if I came back to Brusells I would stay somewhere else however.

Its not antique its old and dirty

The pictures posted in the site have nothing to do with the real conditions of the hotel. Room was very old and in terrible condition. Old drapes with small moth holes , dirty rusty toilet, broken safe deposit box, leaking fawcet. Old smelly carpets. Dont let be fooled by the lovely pictures. The reception, bar and indian garden indeed are nice, but the rooms are old and dirty. Very nice and helpful attitude of the hotel staff. That would be the only true thing about the rest of the reviews.

Return to an elegant era

Pros: Close restaurants
This is a beautiful hotel, perfectly located in Brussels. You can walk to great shopping areas, Grand Place, and other attractions from here. The lobby and cafe are gorgeous. The outdoor area of the cafe is a great place for people watching. The room was large and pleasant, and the bathroom was beautifully appointed and spacious. I would love to return again.

Metropole Hotel

Classic Hotel, suggested the style of the 19th Century's Golden Age. Good location for walking to the Grand Place. Staff was very helpful. Clean room. Taxi driver took the long route to the hotel from the train station, claiming construction detours etc, half the time and price going is a direct shot on the underground to Gare Midi and Eurostar, but we did not want to lug our extra baggage on the Metro. Much nicer having the hotel book the taxi on the trip back!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really a pretty hotel...

Nice hotel in the heart of Brussels

I stayed here on business in September 2008 and was very happy. City Hall and dozens of restaurants are just blocks away making this a great place to stay on business or pleasure. I'm planning another visit in April 2009.
