I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel, I would stay in this hotel again if I were to visit Brussels again. The location is 10 metres from Rue Neuve (the main shopping street) and 10-15 minute walk to the restaurant area and the Grand Place. So easy to walk back, it is well lit and generally has people milling... More

Hotel Esperance We stayed here, or rather across the street in an apartment managed by the hotel, for three miserable nights. We showed up at about 10:30 pm. The hotel is a nice walk from the train station, especially when you have no luggage. Not the hotels fault (it was British Airways’ doing) but our luggage was delayed for many... More

Hotel Esperance is a quaint, art-deco, boutique hotel in Brussels. Its about a 15 min cab drive from Brussels Midi and the nearest metro station is a 5 minute walk. We booked a triple room and were thus warned that it was on the top floor and there was no lift. So we were not surprised at the trek up... More

Cute little place that is walking distance from shops and sights. Two minutes to a main shopping strip and about fifteen minutes from the Grand Palace. In between main stations so if you're up for the walk with luggage is a bit of a struggle. Not really near any night life or nice restaurants so for solo traveling females you... More

We were glad that we took a quick and inexpensive cab from the train station and didn't try to find this on our own. Once we were here everything was easy to access by foot. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very charming with a lounge below and retro style decor in the rooms. We will... More

The hotel was really perfect for our short stay. Reception was very helpful, check in easy, location great. Room a bit small. but big enough for us Bathroom was big, however, and had a great shower. No elevator, and we were on the 3rd floor, but reception carried our bag up for us, no problem. It is also a Art... More

I loved my stay at Esperance. I had the apartment at the top of the building so it was a bit of a climb up a narrow staircase but worth the effort. A microwave, electric kettle and tea/coffee making facilities were available as well as a small fridge. The hotel's bar is lovely, original art deco, and breakfast is also... More

We stayed in this hotel 4 nights in May. At first, I was pleasantly surprised by its excellent location, 10 minutes walk away from North Station and 15 minutes from Grand Place. At check-in, the receptionist warned us that the hotel does not have an elevator and he asked us to choose the floor we wanted to stay. I choose... More

Nice little art deco hotel. Great service from the get-go. Salem was quick to respond to our questions before our arrival. We had a room on the 1st floor (one set of stairs). It seemed recently redone. Had a small frig, was nicely decorated, bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was great. There was a rain shower which... More
