“Good location for shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Cute little place that is walking distance from shops and sights. Two minutes to a main shopping strip and about fifteen minutes from the Grand Palace. In between main stations so if you're up for the walk with luggage is a bit of a struggle. Not really near any night life or nice restaurants so for solo traveling females you might feel safer in a taxi rather than walking.

We were glad that we took a quick and inexpensive cab from the train station and didn't try to find this on our own. Once we were here everything was easy to access by foot. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very charming with a lounge below and retro style decor in the rooms. We will definitely stay here again!!

Hotel was perfect for stay it's in a fantastic location right at end of shopping district and close to all choices of restaurants.. Hotel staff are helpfully. Out room was immaculate. Hotel is only 10 minute walk from train station, train is only 20 minutes to airport. Hotel is value for money and I would stay here again and would recommend to others.

The hotel was really perfect for our short stay. Reception was very helpful, check in easy, location great. Room a bit small. but big enough for us Bathroom was big, however, and had a great shower. No elevator, and we were on the 3rd floor, but reception carried our bag up for us, no problem. It is also a Art Deco gem, lobby was a work of art, and the room, very nicely decorated and updated. Really a great experience, and would stay there again.

Room Tip: No elevator, so the climb is a bit much if you are on the higher floors. Just get a room on the 1st...

I loved my stay at Esperance. I had the apartment at the top of the building so it was a bit of a climb up a narrow staircase but worth the effort. A microwave, electric kettle and tea/coffee making facilities were available as well as a small fridge. The hotel's bar is lovely, original art deco, and breakfast is also served down here in the morning. I was only there one night and would have liked to stay longer since my room was so lovely. It was close to everything and when I left I walked to the railway station. I arrived early and they let me leave my bags there while I went for an explore.

Room Tip: If you aren't fit choose a room on the lower floors since the stairs are narrow and steep

We stayed in this hotel 4 nights in May. At first, I was pleasantly surprised by its excellent location, 10 minutes walk away from North Station and 15 minutes from Grand Place. At check-in, the receptionist warned us that the hotel does not have an elevator and he asked us to choose the floor we wanted to stay. I choose room number 2 at the first floor and I received, along with the room access card a key for the minibar that I couldn't use because there was no lock and the minibar was empty (luckily however, it worked and I could thus keep cool some beers). The room is of normal dimensions, with no wardrobe and with only 4 coat hangers and the bathroom is poorly lighted. Unfortunately, the last day, I noticed a large stain on the bed cloth we slept in, which changed a little bit my opinion about this hotel. There was a 32'' LCD TV with 20 channels, most of them national. Breakfast is very poor.
In spite of all he above drawbacks, we may come back sometime because of its very good position.

Monsieur
Nous prenons note de vos remarques c’est la consternation de notre côté, sachez que je suis profondément touché par le cliché montrant une tache sur les draps une telle lacune qui a échappée à la femme de chambre ,est une première jamais un tel manquement n’a été signalé dans notre établissement.
Si vous aviez signalé la tache lors de votre séjour qu’aussitôt le remplacent aurait été fait vous n’avez soumis aucune plainte enregistrée .
Le contrôle des chambres se fait tous les jours…on ne comprend pas ! Bizarre
Les critères qui font le classement en bonne position de notre hôtel ,est la propreté la literie ,le service personnalisé…et le bâtiment classé monument historique
J’espère que votre séjour à Bruxelles fut satisfaisant .
Malgré tout je constate votre désir de revenir lors de votre prochain séjour. Daignez me contacter personnellement.

Nice little art deco hotel. Great service from the get-go. Salem was quick to respond to our questions before our arrival. We had a room on the 1st floor (one set of stairs). It seemed recently redone. Had a small frig, was nicely decorated, bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was great. There was a rain shower which had its own basin- no problems with wet floors, and there were nice amenities and good towels. The breakfast was fortifying- oj, cereals, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, assorted rolls, coffee etc. Very clean. Staff friendly and willing to assist in any way. Only two blocks to Grand Place, and one block from metro stop. Great place and would stay here again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator. If you have trouble with steps, then ask for room on first floor which is one...
