Yes this hotel is old and has history behind it and is at time of our visit going through a much needed update. So some of its elegance's was hidden behind boards to hide the builders, but the boards had been nicely decorated. It has a great location, only ten minute walk to the Grand Place where you find the... More

No "wooohooooo" here this time!!! Whoever rated this as a 5 star hotel must have been blindfolded at the time . No marble features here as per website , in fact it is more of an MDF job lot . Carpets are thread bare throughout, ceilings are peeling,the rooms look like they have been robbed of furniture including the kettle... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Metropole in Feb this year. Firstly, the location is great - 5 mins walk to main shopping streets, restaurants, bars and Grand Place. The hotel itself is lovely. I love the Art Deco feel! The staff are fabulous and extremely efficient. However I just felt a few finishing touches were missing. The lift... More

Cannot fault the central location. Everything you want to see in Brussels is on your doorstep. The Metro stop is outside. For history lovers this is one of the fringe Grand Dame hotels of Europe. The public areas are grand, albeit undergoing refurbishment. But, that is where it stops. The hotel lacks an atmosphere (exception being the Brasserie & pavement... More

This "5 Star" place is likely the most disappointing hotel I visited so far: broken toilet not fixed in days, unfriendly staff, bellboy that watches you struggling with luggage while keeping his hands in the pocket, broken furniture, filthy carpets, windows that don't close tightly. I understand that star ratings are locally biased, but this rating beats it all -... More

Don't let the price fool you, this hotel offers the real grand hotel deal! Much of the building is recently renovated and the interior is impressive, there is nothing understated about this place. Staff are lovely, including a helpful concierge and doorman. Spacious room, large comfortable bed. Excellent cafe on site too. A welcome change from the chain experience for... More

I arrived in Brussels early on a Monday morning. After arriving at the hotel I was taken back at the grand entrance of this five star hotel. It was certainly impressive. The receptionist quickly checked me in. He was very nice and helpful. After locating my room on the 6th floor, I was a little disappointed that the décor of... More

We stayed 2 one night in this hotel. We had a Junior Suite (3027) and a standard room (325). The Junior Suite was 75% old and had seen some smokers in the past. The bathroom stylish and recently renovated. Some rooms had traces of violent door openings. The access to the upper floors wan't secure at all. Free entrance for... More

Stayed here for my birthday in November 2014 and booked direct with the hotel for a superior room, thinking they would be more grateful. When we arrived I was given one of the 1960s rooms that had worn furniture, ripped wall paper and stains on the carpet. When we complained that it was not what we had booked, the receptionist...
