    Very Spacious rooms in the heart of the city

    The location of the hotel was one of the reasons that we chose to stay in this hotel. Although the rooms can be really pricey in high season, you can get to stay at a very reasonable rate if you keep your eyes open for special rates (like summer deals). We stayed for 115 Euros/night excluding breakfast. Our room was one of the biggest hotel rooms that I have ever stayed in. The Breakfast buffet was better than most hotels with a wide choice of food. Wi-fi is free but slow. I recommend it.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Metropole Hotel Brussels

    Lovely hotel - especially the deluxe rooms


    Spent last weekend at the Metropole. Beautiful hotel - especially the amazing lobby. We had a deluxe room which was reasonably sized and well-decorated. I suspect the standard rooms might not be as good - try to get the weekend upgrades. They offer great package deals on the weekends.

    Only issue we had was the breakfast (which is included in most of their rates). It would often run out and not get replenished quickly enough.

    On our second morning, I had to walk up and tap a waiter on the shoulder to get their attention and some coffee! There were simply not enough waiting staff to deal with the numbers of people there.

    Outside of this though, a great stay.

    Elegant and incredibly central


    We stayed in the Metropole in September - it's a hotel that transports you back in time with the elegant facade, antique lifts and sweeping staircases. It's got one of the best locations in Brussels and is within walking distance of everything. The room was comfortable and well appointed, and the room service breakfast was excellent. I'd definitely stay here again

    A very pleasant weekend


    We stayed for a long weekend- a weekend away from our teenagers. We had a really nice room- I guess reading other reviews, it would have been a deluxe room. Fantastic bathroom and shower. View to Place de Brouckere, good local places for eating across the road and the terrace as other tripadvisors have suggested, is fantastic for watching the world go by.

    A short walk away to the Grand Place. We enjoyed our stay here and to treat ourselves again, we intend to return later in 2004.

    Excellent hotel in brussels


    Definitely the best hotel in Brussels, close to all interesting places as the Grand Place, wonderful cafe, hall and lounge. Rooms are cosy.

    Great terrace in front of the hotel and very friendly staff.

    Definitely good


    Nice hotel, centrally located with nice rooms and excellent restaurant.

    Great historic touch in the lobby and reception. Delux rooms are rather big with nice size bathroom. Brkf is good but not spectacular. Cinema is across the road, as well as some nice local restaurants. Stayed during the week end for 115 double room. Definitely would come back.

    We love suites in the metropole


    this time we stayed in a junior suite. excellent spacious room !

    spacious bathroom. every day and afternoon cleaning of the room.......friendly staff. actually we did expect to have a junior suite on the front with view to place de brouckere, but it was view on courtyard. but, the room was very light, sitting area, nice bathroom......breakfast service in the room is very good in time, enough bread and pastries....unfortunately we could not afford a junior suite everytime but the other deluxe rooms or medium rooms are also very nice....this will stay our favorite in brussels.when you are here, do not miss to sit on the terrace and watch brussels walk by on you...have fun..



    We stayed in July 2001 having booked a "deluxe" room, it was my partners birthday so I wanted it to be as nice as possible and having seen the pictures on their web site it looked fantastic. The hotel entrance is very nice, however, the room was a disappointment with shabby furnishings and a cigarette burnt bedspread (it is a 5 star hotel after all). When I asked to be moved I was informed curtly that I was only staying for one night! Even though the hotel seemed empty I could only be moved (after a 15 min wait) to a twin room. I will not be coming back I addressed my comments via e-mail to the hotel who could not be bothered to reply. I have stayed at the Conrad which I would recommend 100%.

    A Weekend at the Metropole


    The neighborhood was getting run down when we stayed here in March 2002. The hotel is a little run down, too, but the breakfast is terrific.

    Upgrades; a warning!


    We stayed at the Metropole hotel over Christmas 2001 at their special weekend rate and had a wonderful time. We enthused about our lovely room and made a return visit in September 2002, this time taking friends. Unfortunately on this occasion the rooms were very disappointing. It transpired that over Christmas we had been upgraded without our knowledge, so we assumed all the rooms were that good! Be aware, there's a big difference in the standard of rooms. That said, it's still a fabulous hotel with wonderful public rooms.

    Elegant hotel in central location


    I stayed here in May 2002, taking advantage of their amazing Friday/Saturday/Sunday rate of E115 (normally E425). This was supposed to buy me a Standard room, but they gavemea deLuxe one - superb. Very large, three full length windows opening onto a balcony, most comfortable furnishings & wonderful bathroom. I stay in a lot of hotels worldwide & cannot fault this one - even the breakfast was superb, with (genuinely) frshly squeezed juices & in-house baked croissants. I can't wait to return - it's right in the centre of the city & ideal for a weekend break.
