A centrally-located, five-star member of Historic Hotels Worldwide, oozing palatial elegance and French Renaissance grandeur, with optional breakfast

Dripping with palatial grandeur and opulence, five-star Hotel Metropole offers a Brussels stay in true style. A member of Historic Hotels Worldwide, it has a history dating back over a hundred years. The work of renowned French architect Alban Chamban, it displays a heady mix of styles, from the French Renaissance main entrance to amazing Empire-style reception hall – all gleaming teak, Namibian marble, gilded bronze and forged iron. Pillars, columns and stained glass windows add to the general splendour.

Elsewhere you’ll find an Indian-inspired lounge and legendary Art Nouveau Café Metropole, with a bronze nymph fountain and listed interiors. Guestrooms are no less impressive and have welcomed an illustrious parade of royalty, American presidents, film stars and directors over the years, including Ted Kennedy, Plácido Domingo, Isabelle Adjani and Bernardo Bertolucci. With all the main city attractions right on your doorstep, there is little more you could wish from your grand Brussels address.
