Art Deco Gem
Posted Jun 2, 2014
My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and we had a great experience with Hotel Esperance. This is a boutique hotel with only 12 rooms. The lobby/lounge is still set with the 1930s art deco feel (feels like stepping into a different era). The rooms are updated, clean and each room has different/fun decor. The rainfall shower was great. Beds were not as comfortable as some we slept on during our time in Belgium. Kind of feel like sinking in quick sand so might recommend an improvement here. Otherwise, the room was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. We were on the 4th floor and enjoyed the climb up each level. For those with mobility issues, however, this is not ideal. We got a really good deal on this hotel, including breakfast. Breakfast was enough to start the day. Fresh coffee as order (espresso, cafe latte, etc), fresh orange juice, cereal yogurt, croissants/pastries, cheese, meat, etc. We told the staff we had to leave a little early on the day we checked out and they had breakfast ready for us before the regularly scheduled time. Located at the top end of the shopping district, it's about a 10 minute walk to Grand Place and about 15 minutes to the central train station. Would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
