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...

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...

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. They went out of their way to help us with anything that we needed. If I shoul be in Belgium again, this is where we would stay. The hotel is beautiful and...

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...

The room was one of the biggest we've stayed in and very comfortable. Staff was friendly, though very clear that questions for the concierge were not to be answered by desk staff and vice-versa. They were very helpful with internet problems, making copies for us and in drawing maps so I could find a church to attend. They were very...

The Metropole Hotel Brussels is reputedly one of the best in Europe, Well it probably was back in the day. When we went August 2013 it was good in parts. The decor in the entrance and the bar was gorgeous. The decor in our room did look a bit old rather than retro. We arrived too early to book in...

The staff of the Metropole have done a wonderful job balancing keeping the "old world" charm of their hotel while at the same time providing 5-star service and quality.
