The hotel is very convenient for tourist. Very near to shops, restaurant and city centre. The room can be improved with available tv remote control. Clean environment. Breakfast room is quite tight and overcrowded. Very pleasant reception. The lift is quite small and the stairs not adequately lit so therefore be careful of narrow corners.

The Opera Hotel is very close to the Grand Plaza in Brussels and just down the street from all the outdoor restaurants. The staff at the front desk was friendly and available 24 hours. The breakfast was simple but adequate with an expresso machine. Low cost but the hotel is really well-worn and barely a two-star hotel. My room was... More

The hotel is in the heart of the pedestrian area, best position possible. The rooms are clean and more than decent, the hotel is a typical old-fashion building and the personal is gentle and friendly. We went already twice and will be sure to go back there in our next visits to Bruxells!

The Hotel Opera in brussels couldn't be more centrally located. The rooms are basic, but clean - and have reasonable bathrooms. If you're looking for a cheap stay in Central Brussels and want a private room, you could do worse.

I really loved the location and how easy it was to use as my home base for seeing the city. The people at the front desk were courteous and very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was simple but good. The rooms were nice but a bit small. The room I had faced the street and it could get noisy especially... More

Stayed one night and arrived late and left early. Booked and then read some reviews that this hotel was unsafe and a dump. Its very centrally located in the centre of town near to the Grand Place. On a busy pedestrian street and there was noisy bars all around and noise till the early hours. Some may call it vibrant... More

I used to stay in Hotel Opera every time I was in Brussels in the early 2000s. I was delighted to come back and find the hotel still being excellent value for money, as it is right in the middle of Brussels and you have public transport (Metro, trains, etc) within 3 minutes walk. The free WiFi enabled me to... More

Booked this for a one-night business trip because of the hotel's location, and thought "how bad can it be?" Well, really bad, it turns out. The hotel would be acceptable if it was a €30/room hostel, but as a €100/night *hotel* it is completely unacceptable. The whole place needs to be renovated, and preferably get new management. The downstairs area... More

The hotel is very well located, the staff is friendly, the breakfast was ok. I think that the location of the hotel is the best, it's close to the subway (so you can go and visit other parts of the city) and it's in the center. Ci è piaciuto molto questo hotel, è vicinissimo alla metropolitana e al centro. La... More

This small Hotel is ideal for a short break stay in Brussels - being so central. Less than 5 minutes to the Grand Place, yet only one block back from the Metro services on Boulevard Anspach. Staff are pleasant and welcoming. Speak to Reception to get their best prices - it is EXTREMELY reasonable. Taxi from/to Eurostar about E10. We... More
