Hotel Metropole, a charter member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2011, dates back to 1895.


Hotel Metropole was constructed during the historic reign of the United Kingdom’s famed Queen Victoria, who sat on the British throne from 1837 to 1901.

Inaugurated in 1895, this legendary Belgian destination is the city's only surviving 19th-century hotel that still open for business. It was originally an afterthought, as it was built by a brewer's family as an addition to their café. With its spectacular blend of Art Nouveau and Art Deco architecture, this outstanding historic hotel is a great monument for a time when Brussel’s middle classes were prospering at an unprecedented rate. Today, Hotel Metropole boasts the grandest hotel setting in Brussels. The main entrance mirrors French Renaissance frivolity and is paired with an Empire-style reception hall that is replete with gold stained-glass. Glittering chandeliers, original features, and historic rooms convey a playful mix of Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and modern architectural styles that create for unrivaled beauty in the heart of Brussels. Add to this to the medieval splendor of the nearby Grand Place, and guests will realize that nowhere else is better in the city for beginning a truly historical experience.
