The Stanhope is one of the best surprises I´ve had in Europe. It has about a 100 rooms, it is not in the best loction but it´s perfect in many ways.
We were given a deluxe room as an upgrade given our wedding anniversary. This room had a separate parlor, 2 tv´s, dual basins, 2 shower/bathtub. Towell heater, trouser press, etc.
The room was not big, but had every required appliance and nice furniture as you can see in other photographs.
I concur with other reviews. The front desk are as good as any experienced concierge. They arranged for a walking tour and it was a great visit.
Everything was flawless.
Thanks to the staff of the Stanhope, as they did their best to accomodate all of our needs.
The only spot that might need to be reconsidered is the breakfast alternatives, it´s quite limited
By the way, In my current trip I´ve paid 250 /350 Euros around Paris, Amsterdam and Stockholm. This is a steal at 120 euros (weekend). Do yourself a favor and stay here. You will pay 8 -10 euros for a cab drive back fom the grand plaza. Alternatively, the walking sights are great and it will take you no more than 10-15 minutes.
warm hotel, out of historic town centrefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Stately, quiet and comfortablefrom Travellover53
The deluxe room was a bit small but well-equipped with luxury toiletries, towels, bathrobes, mini-bar etc. We did not use the pool but it looked lovely. We were there during the weekdays so most of the guests were elegantly dressed business people. Breakfast was a bit expensive, but no more so than other 5 star hotels in Europe. We eat lightly and found decent little places nearby. Otherwise, we tended to eat dinner in the historic district.
The hotel is located on a quiet street just one block from a main avenue and a subway station. Also near a beautiful park, we were within a twenty minute walk to the museum district and a little farther from the central historic district and Grand Square. You could jump on the metro -- all very easy to get around the city. We bought the Brussels pass which gave us unlimited use of the metro, city buses and access to most museums -- well worth the price which was about $30. Great seafood restaurants over near St. Catherine's Square. Avoid most of the touristy places off Grand Square but do have drinks in any of the cafes on the Square.
Outstanding service and great rooms!from hstraveler

s not quite in the starsfrom Opinion8ted
That said, the staff could not be nicer or more cheerful. The hotel courtyard is absolutely lovely, and the breakfast buffet, while expensive, expands upon some of the usual European offerings. The hotel is convenient to the US Embassy, and for being so well located for business, is very quiet. A pleasant walk (though not in the heat) brings one to the Place du Sablon for a wonderful bit of shopping and some chocolates, or to some of the museums.
I'd be willing to give it another go on a later trip, but sorry, folks, I just can't quite get to an "excellent" rating.
could be much better....from A TripAdvisor Member
Fabulous Hotelfrom mairebeth
Classyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Wow, what a reception area & foyet. Pity that this was the only hotel in our trip who mixed up the booking - they intially suggested that it was unpaid for and gave us keys to a twin room whereas the room was paid for months in advance & a double room was clearly requested. This was quickly & politely corrected. The room was excellent - 2 TVs (1 in the bedroom & 1 in the living/lounge room); fabulous bed, decor, marble & tile work; good shower but tiny toilet room. The hotel is a 5 star & does protray this in many ways. It is 1 block away from Trone/Troon metro stop & is east of Gare du midi. it was a good enough location & oozed class but still can only give it 4 stars.
Top Local Tips for Brussels
ATMS We had a nightmare finding an ATM that accepted either VISA or Maestro. We've had better service in small tows in India, than in the capital of Europe - take cash, it's much easier!
Those who dont ask..... there are so many restaurants in brussels vying for your custom that not only can you negociate deals, you can ask for anything you want to eat and they will do their best to accomodate you.
Restaurants There are good restaurants w/in walking distance in several directions...the hotel staff may not know all of them. But be sure you check on hours for restaurants and museums and tourist attractions...they keep some strange hours over there.
