Everything about this hotel was good. The beds were really comfortable (I often have trouble with hotel beds being too firm). The staff were efficient and friendly. Breakfast was good. Yes, it was expensive to eat there but we found Brussels was expensive everywhere. (We weren't expecting to find eating cheap in a 5 star hotel and found a nice...

We stayed at the Stanhope at the recommendation of my daughter who stayed there on business. She said it was the best hotel she had ever stayed in. Maybe the rooms that business travellers get are better than those that book on Expedia etc. The room was nothing special considering all the good reviews I read before booking, it was...

We stayed in this hotel for two nights, and I really don't understand why it has such a high rating. - The location is not the best one. The Metro system in Brussels is great so you can easily get wherever you want. There are no nice places to go out at night, so you have to go to the...

Just stayed for 1 night on a special deal through lastminute.com. What a cracking hotel, friendly staff, pleasant service, sensible prices even at the bar. Car parking costs €25 per night, not cheap, but underground and safe. Close to Trone metro station, On Saturday and Sunday mornings you can get the excellent breakfast buffet for €17.50 as opposed to the...

The Stanhope is by far the best value hotel we have stayed at in Europe. The room was huge and the bathroom acceptable by EU standards. The common areas of the hotel are also well appointed and accomodating. The hotel is on a side street and a little hard to find but it is worth the trouble. It also is...

Let's be clear: something about this hotel didn't quite gel with me. Perhaps it's because I secretly prefer the sparse interiors of a modern design hotels and found the experience of staying in what amounts to an English country house hotel in the heart of Brussels rather incongruous, perhaps it was because accessing the internet was a mystery with few...
