"Amazingly beautiful hotel with top-notch services"
Metropole Hotel is extremely beautiful with top of the line, 5-star service, located in the heart of Brussels and within close walking distance to many of the cities best attractions. We loved our stay and would DEFINITELY stay here again.
We stayed for a three night visit in Brussels and opted for an executive room on the fourth floor. Having stayed in both Paris and Brussels before, we were still expecting a rather small room - were we surprised. This was a lovely, spacious room, with king size bed and a sofa, spotlessly clean with separate "rain fall" type shower, plenty of hot water and loads of large, soft, white bath towels, bathrobes etc. We would absolutely stay here again. The staff were helpful and the area is so close to the cathedral, station and Grand Place.
bad first - the room was far too warm. we had the air-con on it's lowest setting all night and were still hot. too much air con can lead to very dry air which made it a little hard to sleep so a window that opened even a little would have made it more comfortable.
That being said the room was quiet and comfortable and the bed was great, huge and very comfortable. Cleanliness thorughout the entire place was fantastic. Breakfast was offered to us at check in at a discounted rate (18 euros is still fairly expensive for a buffet though) the food was very nice and there was a good selection of both hot and cold. The staff in the restaurant were also excellent, remembered us and gave us our 'regular' table.
The location is fantastic. No traffic noise yet you're just minutes from the Grand Place and fantastic little back streets where all of the action is.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. just find a cheap way to get in from Charleroi airport that doesn't involve multiple train journeys!
Pocket Guide: Brussels Brussels Grand Place Hotels
A heart-shaped ring road defines Brussels’ city core, and most of its visitor attractions. Within these limits, the centre consists of two distinct halves. To the west is the Lower Town, a tangle of medieval streets centred on the Grand Place, a vast cobbled square surrounded by ornate Flemish buildings. To the east is the newer and more aristocratic Upper Town, a zone of palaces and parks, grand museums, and gothic churches.
