Well located apartment but with problemsPosted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: The space, and all the facilities (kitchen, dinning room, bath).
Cons: Change the bed and the mattress, add black out curtains and a shower curtain too.
The apartment is quite new and well located, near a metro station and the historic downtown. However, there was to much noise in the street and also the street illumination was very bright and no blackout curtains in the bedroom. Also the bed wasn't comfortable and made a lot of noise.

Very Good but not a HotelPosted Jan 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is not a Hotel. These are apartments. The reception is at a different location - not adequately indicated in the post. The address of the reception was not indicated. There was no sign at the reception office and the apartment entrance so it can be identified. The apartment was clean and spacious with minimal furniture and decoration. All the necessary items where available. Good for a family or a small group of friends.

Good value, no servicePosted Oct 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
Superb location. Five-minute walk to rail/metro/Grande Palace/city center. Large apartments and fairly well-maintained. The only negative is virtually no service. The check-in office is two blocks away and is open only 11am-7pm. On my visit, the lift/elevator did not work at all and my apartment was on the 5th floor. I rushed to check in at 6:50pm and the check-in office didn't even mention that the lift didn't work. After I discovered it, there was no recourse since the office was shut. In addition, there was no shampoo or body-wash in the apartment. So, all in all, it would still be a good value if I had known all these things in advance. If you are travelling with a large group or with kids, this is probably a very good value. But don't expect service that one would normally expect of even a mid-range hotel.

Property office different from apartment officePosted Aug 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
Beware. The office where you check in and pay for the apartment, and the actual apartments, are at different addresses. At the time of this booking, the only information, gave the address of the actual apartments. I had to phone the office on my mobile, and get instructions on how to locate the office. Perhaps Hotels.com has corrected this since I booked the Opera Residence. Having said that, the apartment I had, was absolutely perfect for my stay. A very modern apartment, well appointed but casual. The large windows open to the very busy square across the street, (in front of the opera house.) The kitchen has all high-end appliances and nice cookware and dishes. As you can ascertain, there is not a hotel-like front desk. There is a security entrance to the building; the lift is directly across from the entrance. The old city is very near, and a wonderful walk from the apartments. I really like this property and it appears that the management runs it with a good amount of professionalism.

hotel location is good, but the problem is collecting key from there office then go to the hotel. As we reached there on Saturday it was a bigger hassle as they r not open till 2. So do ur homework of getting address and phone no of office before u do booking. Apt was good with all the amenities. At night it is a bit noisy as it is centrally located.but overall I will give it a 3.5 score out of 5

A great place to stay in BrusselsPosted Jul 15, 2011
We were very pleasantly surprised by the size and condition of the Opera apartment. A large living/dining room and kitchen, 2.5 bathrooms and 2 well-appointed bedrooms. There was plenty of room to spread out, and would have been large enough for more than our family of 3. Everything was very clean, and the location was perfect - just a few minutes walk from the Grand Place and all the sites of the city. The only negative was that the area seemed to get very loud very early in the morning, with people congregating and making noise outside our windows, which was disturbing, but didn't last too long.

Be sure you get the keyPosted Jul 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
Hotels.com gave us the address of the apartment but no information on how to get in! We spent 3 hours tracking down the key. Otherwise the apartment was great. Clean and well located.

GREAT PLACE TO STAYPosted May 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
So, I was a bit skeptical about this place. When I booked there was very little info about it and no reviews. Let me say that this is a great place to stay. It is different than a hotel. Actually, it is a group of apartments that are rented out on a daily basis. So you dont just get a hotel room, you get an apartment with a kitchen, bathroom, living room, etc. Everything in the apartment was very new and nice. The location was AWESOME. It is about a 3-5 minute walk from the Grand Place. There are a ton of restaurants, shops, etc in the vicinity. It is also right next to at least 2 metro stops. There are a few grocery stores nearby as well. When you book, be sure you go to the correct address for check in. The check in office is not located in the same place as the apartments. It is not that far. I recommend parking at the parking garage near the apartment (15Euros/day) and walking to the check in location. Wifi is about 5 euros per day as well. Most of the hotels I looked at in brussels before booking were anywhere between $200-300$ USD per night. This place was quite a bit cheaper. I considered it quite a steal. All the apartments are non-smoking. The property is actually owned by "Apartments Apart." Google them to learn more.
