The hotel was well serviced by staff, very nice rooms, quite central (close to the EU) and walking distance to public transport. I also enjoyed the local area around the hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Stanhope in late August, and found it to be a wonderful and classy hotel. However, it is in more of a business district, so there is not as much in the way of restaurants and entertainment nearby. However, we enjoyed a spacious and well-appointed room and great service. Our only complaint is that... More

I stayed solo at the Stanhope for 2 nights during a month trip through Europe. The hotel is located in the European Quarter (as opposed to the central city area).

Successfully bid with Priceline- was hoping for Le Meridien by Central Station (reason for stay in Brussels was that I had to leave early the next morning on a flight so I wanted to be close to the train) and was at first disappointed that I got the Stanhope.
