Meine Freundin (am Ende der Reise meine Verlobte) und ich verbrachten hier drei Tage und ich kann das Hotel nicht genug empfehlen. Das Personal ist außergewöhnlich hilfsbereit, einschl. der Einheimischen, die unsere Briten beschämen würden. Eine Zugstation war nur 50 Meter entfernt, da ist man innerhalb von fünf Minuten in Brüssel (nehmen Sie nicht die Straßenbahn, die fährt auf den Straßen und das dauert ewig!). Eines der besten Hotels was das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis angeht.
An Absolute Gem.
I travel alot for business and I have to stick to a fairly strict budget for hotels.
What a nice surprise this hotel was!
For 100 Euros you get a HUGE, well appointed and comfortable room, free wireless internet access (when the rest of the world is charging 15-25Euros a day), a fax machine (nice touch for business travelers), a DVD player with 2 complimentary movie rentals per day (never seen that sort of generosity anywhere) and a delicious buffet breakfast. All of this located in a beautiful area close to the center of Brussels, and only a couple of stops away on the metro. And to top it off the staff was exceptionally polite and helpful.
My only criticism is that they seemed a little understaffed in the breakfast restaurant, so there was no one to clear the plates after you had finished.
This hotel is in my humble opinion one of a kind. I just hope that my business dealings will lead me back to Brussels so I can bring my wife with me sometime to enjoy this fantastic hotel.
The perfect location
My girlfriend (well, fiancee by the end of the break!) and I stayed here for 3 nights and cant recommend it enough. The staff were all exceptionally helpful including one natve who put our English to shame! There is a Metro station 50 yards away which whisks you into Brussels within 5 minutes (dont take the tram, they use the roads and can take ages!)
One of the best hotels especially in terms of value for money you'll find.
Top class small hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Montgomery for one night last week. He was on business, I went for the ride. While the Montgomery isn't that close to the centre of Brussels, it is ideally placed by a metro station so it is really easy to get around the city from there. The staff were fantastically friendly and even though it is a small hotel it feels like 5 stars. Our room was well-designed and very spacious - almost like a suite in many other hotels. A sofa and coffee table and a generously sized desk with a fax phone provided! Free wireless networking throughout the hotel - this is clearly aimed at business people but its friendliness made it seem like a little haven. Good breakfast buffet - our only disappointment was the evening meal. We were too tired to eat out and although my husband's main dish was excellent, my plat du jour of pork medallions was tough and I didn't eat it. I was given a dessert instead. Would we go back to the Montgomery? Definitely - they get the little things right.
Super room for one person
I stayed three nights at the Mongomery in late December. It is an excellent Hotel. I had a spacious room overlooking Montgomery Square. I could not find fault with the room #314 which was huge and very well equipped including a DVD player. Chocolates were left each day.
Staff were helpful and friendly, speaking faultless English. I got an excellent rate, but be aware of two things;Breakfast is 20 Euros which I feel is excessive, although hot food is cooked to order; the gym and Sauna, if your room is at the front, is approached through either the underground car park or the dining room depending upon which lift you use.
I would return !
Nice hotel but long queues
I stayed here for one night on business. Nice room, friendly staff, hotel felt elegant. Only problem was the very long check-out queue at 8 o'clock in the morning - lots of suited businessmen (like me) checking out at the same time. I gather this is a common problem. Why don't they put on more check-out staff?
Great Hotel, very big rooms, incredibly clean, had sauna which I used 2 times :).
The dvd in your room feature was great, it icluded 2 free rental movies daily!! My wife and I enjoyed this hotel very very much. Its location is great 5m minutes from the grand plaza. Recommend the restaurant in front of the hotel, named Nicos place or something like that.
Highly reommended!! :)
Very nice hotel
Very elegant hotel. Employees very peasant and helpful. 16 steps from the metro. Very quiet, nice neighborhood.
5 Star Elegence
Sitting quite unobtrusively in a terraced building just off a large traffic round-about centred by a beautiful water fountain you will find the Montgomery. Once you walk through the small main entrance you will be greeted with a warmth you have probably not experienced before, rolling from the reception staff right through the decor of the wood panelled, leather chaired public spaces to the sumptuous elegance of the extremely large rooms.
I have stayed in many hotels in many countries but this has to be classed among the best. If you visit at a weekend you will get a tremendous price but you will find yourself about a half hours walk outside the city centre, but for the less energetic of us there is always the underground station not one minutes walk from the hotel which will whisk you into the city in no time. Not a problem.
The rooms have an extra large bed, a comfortable sofa with coffee table and easy chair, a large redwood writing desk and by the window an additional small coffee table with 2 chairs. The elegant bathroom comes complete with bathrobe and slippers. If you look at the web site for the Montgomery what you see is what you get, luxury. Don't miss out on this one.
My wife and I spent a weekend in the Montomery Hotel Brussels during May 2004. While it was listed as a 5 star hotel, I must tell you I was sceptical, until we arrived. The decor, room size, facilities, cleanliness, friendliness and service all rate a big 5 in my opinion. Plus, we paid a rediculously low rate because it was a weekend (lower than we had paid anywhere in Amsterdam, Paris and London). The hotel is far enough away from the mad tourist venues to be peaceful but with the subway right next to the hotel, it took us no more than eight minutes to get anywhere. The walk to the tourist traps will take you around an hour but you will be suitably entertained by the sites and open-air park on the way. I would go back anytime.

... Pis (the statue of a little boy peeing into a fountain pool) and then meandering around a few churches and up the main drag until I reached the hostel at which I had eventually decided to stay. After sitting in the lobby, cheekily using the wifi, I booked into what was my most expensive hostel of the trip at 18 euros/night - still just about the cheapest in town. I chatted briefly to a French girl who was sharing my dorm; originally from near Bordeaux, she’d hitched ...
... her we would not be staying here for more than the two hours that had already passed. So that night instead of sharing our feelings with everyone at the dinner table, that was seriously on the agenda, we rode the train of shame back to the only place we knew to go, "Holy **** what am I going to do now?" is about the only thought that could go through my mind during the entire ride back to Brussels. We were crushed, knowing our helpx experiment ...
... this hotel doesn't have any tea of coffee facilities in the room..pretty average for a four star hotel!). But this was all a bit hard, Sarah had to go to the kitchen with him but he had no hot water so we just had to fill them up with the luke warm water that comes out of our bathroom tap.. was ridiculous (then upon check out we found out we had to pay 4 euro for the two tea bags!)
Bed to do it all again tomorrow :) hopefully without all the added drama..
... and in between were food or beer shops advertising several hundred different types of beer. I haven't tasted a bad Belgian beer yet. We used the afternoon to revive ourselves after several very busy days and in the evening joined some friends from Canada for dinner at a nearby French restaurant, dining outside as it was a beautiful warm evening, and of course there was another beer to try and some good ...
... come behind us and almost had his hand on my bag. I just saw him from the corner of my eye and shooed him off. Lucky escape...otherwise I would have lost my passport and precious photographs from the trip.
After having lunch, we ventured on the streets. All we saw were big office buildings and shopping arcades which is expected ...
