Excellent location, you can walk to most of the attractions from here. Hotel includes a breakfast buffet that includes various breads, cold cuts, cereals etc. No restaurant, but you have great options in this area. Waling distance to the train stations so that is a plus.The rooms are small and if you get one that faces the street it gets... More

Small room, definitely needs a refurbishment, breakfast basic, but hotel is in very good location. Friendly staff, receptionists always keen to help you with any request. We did not get the best view but I'm sure you can get a room overlooking the boulevard.

Good location. Close to the center of brussels and the many attractions. Walking around was great. Not too much of hassle. Rooms were not ready by the time we arrived but t he hotel arranged for alternate check in service. Remember cars/taxis do not go up to the hotel in day time. This is in a zone that is only... More

Hotel Opera is situated just perfectly. In french I would say: En plein coeur de la ville. Around the corner is the Grand place and everything is very near. If you come from the Zaventem airport by train to the Central station you have only a few minutes, let me say 5-7 minutes to the hotel. Compare to the other... More

Have to say I have found this nice little hotel just right for me based on the price and the location close to the centre of Brussels (its practically in the centre). Nice warm welcome from the reception explaining the usual policies, free guide map given too. The single room I stayed in was just about right for me. Clean,... More

This is a modent to star establishment. The Location, however, is four star - 100 m from the opera and the Subway. Publicus Parking - underground - likewise is with in 100 m. Grand Place is a four minutes walk away. If you arrive with much lugge, you may have a minor problem because the street is closed for cars... More

Business trip. Great position, right downtown, surrounded by restaurants of any kind and with an underground station at 50 meters. Service war poor, at least in my case: I was given a room that had clearly not been cleaned after the previous occupant had gone and the porter insisted in going to check (while giving me another key right away,...

The location of the hotel is great, is very close of Central Station and is located in a street of restaurants. Also is very close some Brussels' attractions like Grand Place, Town Hall, Manneken Pis, Royal Palace, Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, Palace du Grand Sablon, Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula, Rue de Boucher. However, the room is very small,... More

If you are seeking a bargain room at 79€, easy walking distance to all of central Brussels and don't require frills, this hotel is great. We spent 2 nights and would come back. The rooms are not fancy but warm in January with excellent water pressure for the shower. Free WiFi that worked fine and free breakfast in a small... More

The room I stayed in was clean and the location is OK, in a sometimes noisy street a few minutes away from Grand Place. These are the best things I can say about my stay. The room was tiny and sad - desperately in need of modernisation. And there was a plastic sheet underneeth the bed sheets. Eeew! The breakfast... More
