We stayed for four nights at the Metropole Hotel, excited to be in such a "fancy" hotel. However, my excitement turned to disappointment upon arrival when we were greeted with complete disdain. It was if we were bothering the staff by checking in. No offer to help with our luggage, no one was friendly, a minimum expectation and any star... More

Based upon the pictures and descriptions of the place, I really had high hopes for our stay at the Metropole Hotel for our one night in Brussels. we wanted an old-world, European grand hotel and what we got was a hollow shell of what is pictured. First, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster--the street in front is... More

Stayed here for a second time. Hotel located within a short walk of the Grand Place, eating establishments and shops. Room was clean, tidy and spacious. Breakfast was good and varied. Good undercover seating area outside the front of the hotel.

Its well located 10 minutes stroll from the grand place. It's a hotel that years ago would have been THE place to stay in Brussels, full of old world Charm and original features. It still offers a comfortable and stylish stay all be it some of the grandeur faded and in need of a litte attention. It has a great... More

Great location in the heart of the city, I could explore most places just by walking. Helpful staff, has the feel of a old belgian palace. I had a good spacious room for cheap with a great view and good amenities like a five star. Great ambience throughout with a pretty cafe cum restaurant. I'll love to stay here again.

I loved my stay at Metropole. It was perfectly located and close to the square and shopping. I loved the elevator with gates. The staff was incredibly nice and very helpful. I did not give it five stars because I had some trouble with my air conditioning so they switched me twice before they found a room with working air.... More

The Metropole is located a short 5-10 min walk from the Grand Place and close to lots of shops and restaurants and is well placed for the De Brouckere underground station. The hotel is in the traditional grand style with doormen to welcome you, porters to help with cases and impressive reception area, helpful concierge staff too. The old fashioned... More

I arrived late and I was tired from travelling so maybe this affected a little my opinion but the rooms are old and tired. The internet was very poor and I was listening to some air conditioning machine or something else all night. Good location but I will not return.
