Our family of 4 stayed here for ONE night, the night we moved to Brussels! Therefore, we were exhausted and this was a welcome oasis. We had a VERY LARGE family suite with 2 connecting rooms and 2 bathrooms. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the room was quiet. We ordered room service which was the only disppointment (selection, quality). We borrowed 2 DVD's from the front desk and cozied up to watch them. I highly recommend this hotel. It is my favorite big city hotel.

My boyfriend and I went for a long weekend to Brussels in early December 2007. We wanted to visit some Christmas markets and were also keen to travel on the Eurostar from its new home at St Pancras, Brussels fitted the bill.

We opted for a very reasonable Eurostar deal and ended up at the Montgomery Hotel. The hotel itself is located on the outskirts of the EU Quarter because of this it is not really the ideal base for tourists it would be more suited to business travellers.

Walking into the centre (Grand Place) took approx 1 hour (needless to say we only did this once!), that said the hotel is quite well served by buses and a tram. Additionally there is a metro station almost directly under the hotel. We used the metro daily to get into the centre. The metro is not expensive at all, and on saturdays and sundays 2 people can have unlimited travel for just 4 Euros. The metro system is quick and efficient (and eay to understand) and from leaving the hotel we could be in the centre in approx 15-20 minutes. Just make sure you validate your ticket every time you change lines or modes of transport.

The hotel itself had spacious rooms, these were quite traditional in style. The lighting made the room quite dark, we also found this a challenge to work!. The bathrooms were a lot lighter and had a more modern feel. The rooms were not really our taste but were adequate as a base for exploring the city. We'd say the hotel was solid rather than spectacular but it was adequate for the break and we spent little time in it other than sleeping!

Brussels... loads to do and see, much more than you'd think besides the EU parliament and eurocratic stuff.

We went in December as we wanted to visit a city with Christmas markets, Brussels has 2km of market stalls which were fantastic to wander around, of course making sure we stopped for the odd cup of mulled wine. They were open daily from around 11am through to late at night.

Grand Sablon (go to le pain quotidien for delicious breakfast, pop in the church, wander round the chocolatiers especially Pierre Marcolini - the black building on the bottom corner and pop in the Leffe Cafe for a huge pot of Moules Frites and some tasty steak frites!)

Grand Place through December is incredible at night. Lit up with a lightshow and operatic and classical music being belted out. Sets the spine tingling and will make the biggest ebeneezer feel a bit christmassy! Beware the cafes round there, plenty of tourist traps sp head off the beaten track a bit more.

We got the timeout guide for Brussels which was a big help and, through which we found Papiers des Fleur. A lovely quaint flemish bar, with a friendly owner. Avoid the mannekin pis (overrated statue of a little weeing boy) and land in there for a glass or two of hoegaarden rosee.

Also make sure you go to mort subite (sudden death). An old fashioned belgian beer hall with gorgeous framboise beer.

Atomium and Mini Europe are attractions well worth a visit, they are out towards Heysel, much transformed since the football disaster and easy to get to on the Metro and tram.

Brussels is a lovely city to visit at Christmas, but if you are coming as a tourist we would suggest a more central hotel than the Hotel Montgomery.

We enjoyed our three night stay at the Montgomery in September, which we booked on the basis of the favourably reviews on Tripadvisor.

Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated, with very comfortable bedding, a nice sofa and lounge chairs. The bathroom was luxuriously appointed, with plenty of amenities, bathrobes and slippers, and everything was spotlessly clean. The room faced the rear of the property, and was very quiet at night.

We were initially a little disturbed by the distance of the hotel from
the Grand Place, however we soon discovered the very efficient metro system; there is an underground station immediately outside the hotel,
and it takes only a few minutes to get to the city centre.

We didn't take breakfast at the hotel, but we did dine in the restaurant on two nights. We thought that the quality and price of the meal was fine, but the service was not up to the same standard - on a couple of occasions, we had to leave our table and ask the staff at Reception to find the waiter to take orders, etc.

The service provided by the staff at Reception when checking in and out was efficient and polite, but not exactly warm and friendly.

On balance, the Montgomery provided good value accommodation, and we would be happy to stay there again.

We stayed here back in August and to be fair, the hotel was exactly as it looks in the pictures, it is clean, but the furniture is cheap,, and old fashioned, but not in a fashionable way. after staying at other small leading hotels of the world, we were suprised, the staff were cold and not even recognising when you walk in and out of the hotel, we wanted to dine in the restraunt but waited for 10 minutes before deciding to walk out and find somewhere else. The hotel is located near a metro station and there are frequent trips into the centre. We would not go back there if we went to Brussels again, but this is not a huge slur on the hotel, it was fine, just fine, just not a small leading hotel in my book. when we was in the centre, there was some hotels that looked extreamly nice, and we would check these out before going. Also my last moan, parking here is €15 a night, not what you would expect from a hotel out in the sticks.

we chose this hotel based on reviews on this website and at the time it was rated as the number 1 in brussels , it seems to have slpped a bit with tripadvisor customers but nevertheless we ventured off to brussels.

we found the hotel to be pretty well exactly as described by previous guests , lovely , well appointed and large rooms with a good selection of amenities , nice bath , nice robes , slippers etc . overall we found the rooms to be the hotels best feature and spotlessly clean.
the staff were extremely friendly and approachable and the public areas were also pleasant and in the case of the library/bar/breakfast room very interesting.

the breakfast wasn't the best for a 5 star hotel but was plentiful and adequate. it is really a cold table of breads , jams , cheese and ham with cerials , all the usual stuff. i think you can order a few warm things like bacon , eggs , sausage but need to ask for that specially. we didn't go hungry !!!!!

te location is also pretty good being right next to a metro station and tram stop , it is also a quiet area of brussels and seemed much more relaxed and safe compared with some downtown areas.

there are a number of decent places to eat if you walk out of the hotel to the right and cross over the road and walk towards the next metro station from ,montgomery' which is called 'merode' there are some asian restaurants , belgian brasseries and our favourite was a superb little lebanese place about 300 yards down the road .... try the mixed grill !!!!!

yes i would thoroughly recommend the montgomery for a nice quiet and safe location and a very comfortable stay.
