We were given an upgrade so we had a better room than what we paid for. The room was spacious and nicely decorated be it in a modern baroque style that is not to everyone's taste, certainly not ours. We slept very well. The main assets of this hotel are its location (dead center) and its marvellous art deco cafe... More

Hotel located in walking distance to the tourist and shopping area in Brussels. Nice and comfortable room if you do not mind climbing some stairs to get there. We did not have breakfast at the hotel since we wanted to sleep longer and try different breakfasts at different places. Friendly staff.

Lovely small and friendly hotel. Historic art deco building, so narrow stairs and no lift, but rooms are well designed and comfortable (although mine lacked a desk to work at). Bar downstairs and decent coffee with breakfast. Very good value.

I stayed in the Esperance hotel for a couple of days while on a business trip. The hotel is conveniently located near Place de Brouckere and the metro station, and within walking distance of the Grand Place. I was given the room on the top floor - 5 flights of narrow steps in total, so a bit of a struggle... More

The rooms are really quite nice and look to be very recently updated. The breakfast was fresh and got all of us off to a great start in the morning. The owner and staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Our group of 5 occupied 3 rooms in September. The location is great for walking to most of... More

A beautiful Art Deco Tavern in a side street off the main shopping and tourist centre, just a five minute walk from the tram stop. Easy walking distance from the Grand Place and all the major sightseeing attractions. Our room was beautiful with a very comfortable king size bed and a great walk in shower, the breakfast was served in... More

A great find, this. A well-restored Art Nouveau hotel of 13 rooms, no more than 10 minutes' walk from the Grand Place. Would suit anyone wanting a change from an identikit modern chain hotel. We booked the "Art Nouveau" room on the first floor, which was a treat. Star feature is the free-standing traditional bath in the bedroom. It's ideal... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights as I had a business meeting in Brussels. The first impression was awkward, don't use the entrance signposted with 'hotel' before midnight, enter through the bar. All personnel was friendly and helpful. The hotel is small with only 13 rooms. There is no elevator, but I didn't consider this an inconvenience. I... More

Lest I give the wrong impression, it was NOT the hotel that was noisy, far from it, but the constant roaring and shouting from the street below that went on until way past 4am. Esperance has a very central location on a small side street between Eglise Notre Dame du Finistère on rue Neuve and one of the main avenues... More

If you walk slowly, it's ten minutes from Grande Place. It is 30 seconds from Rue Neuve, the main shopping street in Brussels. We didn't spend much time in the room, but it was modern, quite big, had no less than four (!) French balconies towards Rue du Finistre and an eccentrically designed bathroom. I still don't know why the... More
