Stepping from the bustling shopping district into the lobby, Hotel Esperance is an oasis of peace. The authentic Art Deco lounge feels like a private time-capsule back to the sleek elegance of the 1930s. Period music, mostly jazz, completes the cool vibe. During our three-night stay, after touring all day, we sank into the cozy booths, drank great Belgian beers... More

Small hotel located in the center near the main attractions in the city 10 minute walk from the Royal Palace and 2 minutes from Sainte-Catherine. As written by previous guests there is no elevator the stairs are narrow and steep. The room is very small just enough to get around no more and has been recently renovated, the bed was... More

Friendly welcome, quality room, bed and bath, nice style. The weather was just at the point where one would check if there's air conditioning or some way to cool it down a little. There's not. Luckily the weather was not that hot yet. I wouldn't stay here on really hot days, but otherwise a perfect nice hotel, well situated.

I spent 3 days in this hotel, I really liked the location and the breakfast which was savoury and sweet with a good selection of food. The only thing which was a bit ... strange and bit uncfonfortable was having the bathtub in the middle of the room....... this because our room was an art deco one. The staff is... More

This small hotel is located literally in the heart of the city center! It is three minutes from Brussels main shopping area and its surrounded by everything a traveler asks, such as small cozy restaurants, cafes, snacks etc. The hotel is very small however with large and nice decorated rooms. Our room was renovated with very good amenities, soundproof windows... More

Gorgeous little hotel, well priced and comfortable stay. The stairs are a little steep if your are carrying lots of luggage but the location is fantastic and the rooms are clean and tidy with a new bathroom. Reception as very helpful when getting us settled in and giving us directions.

All in all a nice hotel because of the ambiance in the rooms. Nice decoration, spacious and a farely modern bath room. Although the rain shower spreads the water a bit too wide to keep the floor dry. The room lacks a desk to work at or a table of sufficient size even though there is plenty of space available.... More

As a regular visitor to Brussels I have stayed in many hotels and this a gem. From the outside it looks nothing special, but once through the door it is a different story; the reception area/bar is a wonderful art deco room that feels very comfortable. My bedroom had been modernised, well decorated with a nice bathroom. The staff were... More

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.
