I can't believe that there are mediocre reviews for this hotel - it's so beautiful. We were really lucky and found a fantastically low priced deal for bed and breakfast online. Looking at the reviews we expected to be in a grotty rundown room but far from it! Yes, it was on the 6th floor overlooking the back but it... More

The hotel manager told me he didn't care about bad reviews he doesn't care about his customers well being either. In a horrible neighbourhood lots of dirt and kebab restaurants next door this hotel might have been nice 50 years ago. Service is not a priority neither is upkeep, the rooms need a paint job were completely messed up over... More

My recent visits to Metropole had had some issues - movie Crew taking over the entire hotel, and the Cafe being closed for renovation. This time everything was back to the normal. Great room, good breakfast, Cafe Metropole up and running again. Only negative aspect is the lack of sufficient wifi in my room, which I needed in order to... More

I have to say this is one of the strangest hotels I have ever stayed at. The ground floor is amazing, all gold paint and marble with a belle-epoque lift (currently being renovated). Staff were friendly but distant, breakfast was fine but did not have the wow factor you would expect from a 5*. And there lies the rub. This... More

We booked two rooms for one night from Saturday to Sunday via the hotel website (best price guarantee, and we really couldnt find a better offer) for 105 Euro (plus city tax 9 Euro) per room for two adults and one child per room. We requested an extra bed per room and rooms next to each other. We got "Superior... More

Room condition very poor - Walls marred heavily with gouges and scuff marks - Radiator paint chipped away, desk chair back broken- Rails, baseboards, and AC panel covered with dust - Balcony not clean - Carpet faded and patched in places - Wander through and admire the lobby but stay somewhere else

Located in the de Bruckere area, this hotel was aesthetically very pleasing, with an early 20th century feel to it. The furnishings, draperies, etc. are plush and very charming. The room was as comfortable and functional as it was beautiful. My only complaint is that the fitness center could have been better appointed.

Overall, a good hotel, not a great hotel. You can imagine this would have been THE place to stay in the 1920'a or 30's, but it's a little past it's best. The decor is grand indeed, but it's a little tired in places, particularly in the bedrooms, and in the breakfast area where the stuffed peacock looks over you! The... More

We only stayed one night in Brussels and this hotel was in a great location for exploring the city, and the staff was welcoming and also offered us free valet parking which was very convenient. The lobby of the hotel was majestic, and the outdoor cafe tables were very inviting but the rooms themselves were very outdated (fading wallpaper, handheld... More

Like all grand old things, the Metropole has lots of character, has some beautiful public areas, but needs a bit more love and attention in the bedroom. Service is good; nice touches like complimentary water, coke and beer in the minibars; internet is excellent; breakfast pretty good; excellent location by Metro, etc.
