I booked the Metropole with a Eurostar package for 3 nights at the end of December 2008 for myself and a girlfriend. I had read the reviews before going and was anxious about some of the negativity on this board. Being quite fussy myself and noise sensitive I was really hoping I wouldn't be given a shabby, noisy room as some have complained. When we arrived off the metro we were literally a few steps away from the hotel - a good start. When we walked upto and into the hotel we were excited how plush, clean and stunning the lobby is... Just like others had described it to be. Check in was easy and the gent was really polite and efficient. All the staff spoke native like English and were truly polite and efficient. When we got to our room, we were very happy. We had a big double room, king size bed and a bathroom with 2 wash basins and marble tiling on the walls and floor. The TV had cable so we could watch BBC1, Eurosports, CNN etc. The minibar was free and so soft drinks and beers were a nice welcome. The hotel is 5 minutes from the Grand Place by foot and only 3 or 4 stops from Midi station by metro. I recommend this hotel to anyone considering a few days in Brussels. The Metropole cafe is also stunning. It is a truly charming hotel.
