Hotel Esperance is a quaint, art-deco, boutique hotel in Brussels. Its about a 15 min cab drive from Brussels Midi and the nearest metro station is a 5 minute walk. We booked a triple room and were thus warned that it was on the top floor and there was no lift. So we were not surprised at the trek up to our room. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and the staff person helped me with my luggage, good for me but not for him and the other two travelers with me. LOL.
The room was clean and bigger than I expected. The sofa bed was already pulled out, ready for use. The bathroom light was missing but by the next day it was fixed. I think we were mostly surprised at the daily room refresh with clean towels and made up beds. I would definitely go back to this hotel again and recommend it to others. It is located near an outdoor shopping area and about a 15 min walk to the Grand Place.
