The Metropole Hotel Brussels is reputedly one of the best in Europe,
Well it probably was back in the day. When we went August 2013 it was good in parts. The decor in the entrance and the bar was gorgeous. The decor in our room did look a bit old rather than retro.
We arrived too early to book in so we left our luggage to be sent up to our room, and went off to see the sights .When we got to our room, there was no luggage. We tried to phone the lobby, but the phone was as dead as a Dodo. Husband had to go to reception where a porter fount the cases, and left Husband to bring them up by himself.
The T.V. was also as dead as a Dodo. An engineer got it going , but couldn't get the phone to work at all..
Breakfast was in " Le Jardin Indian". Very pretty decor. But the hot food was at best only luke- warm. Every morning, cold breakfast.
In the very opulent bar , we could not have the special cocktail advertised as the bar had run out of Cointreau and it was the weekend so they couldn't get any more.
If this hotel wants to stay one of the best, it has to do much better.
