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.

... 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
