Quirky and charming small hotel with good location, i.e. far enough away from the city centre bustle but a short stroll to the markets, shops and restaurants. Lovely Art Deco touches and rooms comfortable. The green room in which we stayed has a long bathroom with a full length 'window' at the shower end! The staff were really friendly, helpful... More

Loved this hotel, with its friendly staff, beautiful and original art nouveau decor and it's hidden proximity to the centre of Brussels.The staff let us check in early after an overnight coach trip to get to Brussels and they really were very welcoming and warm hosts.

... maybe not necessarily in summer. Even in December, the small double room got a bit stuffy after a while. We could leave the windows open at night so it was not much of a problem but I think it could get pretty hot if the temperatures outside were high. Apart from this small point, the Esperance is almost perfect... More

We got a free upgrade to the art deco-room. We loved it, so beautiful. Though it is a bit funny to have a bath inside your room. Staff was very friendly. Room extremely clean. Good location. Church bells in the morning might be a problem for some, but shouldn't bother you of you don't sleep top long. Or wear earplugs.

This is a fantastic place to stay!!! It's in a perfect location . The room we had was for 3 people . This was a triple room . It was on the top floor. It was up several flights of stairs, which we knew before we booked. It had ample space. The beds were comfy. We had room only so... More

We stayed for 2 nights in December and chose it for the location which was perfect. Approximately 10 minutes to the Grand Place and everything else in between. The hotel is set back a little from the high street so the noise levels were reasonably low with exception of the bells from the church Notre-Dame Du Finistère located just around... More

Stayed for one night at the apartments and found it to be a lovely stay. We arrive a little early and the manager Salem informed us the room was not ready yet but if we returned in an hour or so all should be fine. We kept our bags with him and took a short tour of the shops. The... More

Stayed 2 nights in this nice little hotel between 28th to 30th September. We arrived at 12pm, much earlier than the stated check in time, however since our room is ready, they actually allowed us to checkin to our room in advance. Our room number is 11 on the 4th floor. There is no lift and we are carrying quite... More

My stay was booked for 2 nights. Upon my arrival, my room was not ready, but I was able to keep my luggage in the lobby and go around town. I was not very comfortable with this idea, so I was only gone an hour before I returned. My room was ready and my luggage was taken up, which was... More

We stayed here for one night in June and I really loved this hotel. After reading previous reviews I was aware there was no lift but this wasn't an issue for us. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. The room itself was quaint and very comfortable. The only downside was the water from the shower sprayed... More
