- What's Included
The rooms in this hotel are quite large although the decor is a bit dated however that is part of the appeal of this hotel. It has a lot of history going back about 120 years with the likes of Einstein and Marie Curie having spent time there. Very central location.
My girlfriend and I travelled to Brussels for the Christmas Markets and stayed in Hotel Metropole. The location of the hotel is very central so we found it very easy navigating the city. It is sitting walking distance of most of the major attractions. The decor of the hotel is very lavish unfortunately the room did not live up to the rest of the hotel. Though I have stayed in a number of hotels in major cities and I have noticed the same there so not a major negative. The staff were wonderful and the food in the hotel cafe was delicious. It is a perfect hotel for a city break and I'd have no problem recommending it to friends and family.
My son and I stayed here over the New Years time frame. We found the hotel in an overall need of an overhaul including bath and technical (including WiFi) upgrades. The staff were very good and accommodating. The construction, which is massive, is due to continue outside for another year and a half. At which time I’m sure it will look much different, but can the hotel survive that long. This is my second stay at the Métropole and also my last. Oh yea, there were solders with guns inside and out during our stay. I would think they were there because of a holiday threat, but it was a bit unnerving.
Unfortunately road works have made the road outside a wasteland - no cars just bollards, tarmac mixers and holes - should be finished soon I hope. Inside the staff are nice and polite and helpful and maintain the elegance that the lobby area emits. Stephen Hawkins stayed here - there’s a photo of him in the entry (why?). The building is old, no doubt very difficult to update and maintain die to the sheer size. Breakfast is quite good, the hotel is dog friendly and the rooms are sizeable. It is what it is, a throwback to a bygone era and they are doing their best to maintain this so don’t be too hard on them. If you want modern go elsewhere and stop being picky. It is an experience and I would go back.
I arrived at this hotel very late in the evening and left early in the morning, but it was a beautiful hotel to visit. The room was a quirky suite, but fun and with character. I was able to get room service in the wee hours (champagne) and enjoyed the living space in the provided robe and slippers. I think the bathroom was larger than the living area, very bright and nice. I would visit again.
