Editorial review:

Located in the city center, the rooftop of this offering is the place to watch the city pass you by. The public spaces are tasteful decorated, although some think the rooms and amenities are in need of a refurbishment. The rooms, however, are very large and are comfortable, and the service is very helpful at this old-style hotel.

Verified Reviews:

  • Excellent staff - Very good buffet breakfast - No slippers or bathrobe
  • Comfortable bed - Pretty kind staff - Nice room size - Quiet
  • Great location - Elegant common areas - Excellent gourmet restaurant
  • Historic building - Lobby looks great - Rooms were clean
  • Plenty of restaurants - Metro is right in front - Outrageous cost for breakfast

Dining options

The L'Alban Chambon restaurant offers beautiful Italian baroque décor and delicious classic French specialties as well as innovative menu.

Designed by Sandrine Hilaire Saint, decorator at Cartisane Decoration, she gave this place all the atmosphere it needed:

Chairs suitable for women and men, made from fine and durable leathers, in the center the magnificent grand piano, all this is creating a new space for relaxation and conversation. The sober and sophisticated setting contrast with the grandiose architecture and will give the bar an intimate and discreet touch but still luxurious. Appropriate colors, a subtle choice of light, and original furniture will satisfy clients seeking for comfort and privacy behind the new screens of the bar: Le 31.

            It was local to everything. Staff were very friendly. Beautiful place.

            Room was very warm and needed some TLC. Drinks were very expensive.

            The interior design of the Hotel Metropole is extremly impressive and it's location just a short walk from Grand Place makes it an ideal play to stay for a short break in Brussels.

            The price for breakfast is excessive, the original lift is not for the faint hearted as it seems to have a habit of stopping between floors.

            The hotel Metropole is a first class hotel with very good service. The front desk staff went out their way to help me. The staff is very professional. Very good hotel. 9.5 rating.

            The only thing wrong with the hotel is they have old TV sets. But since I was in Brussels to sight see, I really did not mind what TV was in the room. I did not use the TV once.

            For a 5* hotel, we felt it was in need of some refurbishment. Our room was out-dated. The shower water pressure was too powerful. The aircon heated the room up.

            Beautiful reception and bar area. Helpful staff.

            I have stayed at this hotel before, but this time was rather disappointed. Room was freezing cold with no air con, also had bright blue lights so you didn't fall over step to bathroom but these couldn't be turned off, so room too bright to sleep, no shower curtain or screen so water everywhere. Requested new room and was given one, but still rather old and shabby compared to those from previous visits.
