Hotel Metropole has kept legendary watch at Brussels’ majestic city center since 1895. Its guestbook alone is an elaborate account of famous figures who have walked its halls -- chancellors and generals, award-winning actors and artists, and a dazzling array of dignitaries. Throughout this iconic hotel’s 112-year history, gracious welcomes have been extended to Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Caruso, and Arthur Rubinstein.
The lobby of Hotel Metropole is a monument to the palaces of the French Renaissance with sweeping marble staircases, wrought-iron furnishings, stained glass, and leather couches. In fact, the hotel's façade and ground floor have been designated as historical landmarks by the Council of Monuments and Sites of Region of Brussels-Capital. An award-winning, Brussels five-star hotel, the Hotel Metropole is a showcase of a uniquely Belgian ambiance, gathering accolades for “Best Large Business Hotel of Western Europe” by Business Destinations and a “Special Mention” in the Brussels Enterprise Awards as a destination of historic grandeur. Even the hotel’s restaurant, L’Alban Chambon enticed a Guide Delta representative with its artful cuisine and was rewarded with a second “toque.” Both the luxurious hotel and gourmet L’Alban Chambon restaurant are honored to be members of the elite association “Brussels Exclusive Label,” that welcomes Brussels’ most prestigious shop signs.
After extensive renovations restoring the architectural wonders of this historic hotel, Hotel Metropole is once again one of Brussels’ grandest hotels, a property with elegant service standards and a perennial favorite of discriminating travelers.
