Don't be fooled by the Hotel Opera's humble exterior. The two-star hotel offers 49 rooms, just a few blocks north of the Grand Place, at reasonable rates and with plenty of comforts.
Rooms are in need of a “revival” and are outfitted with dated floral curtains, rose bedspreads and navy blue carpets—as well as small cable TVs and free Wi-Fi. A tiny (trust us) elevator will take you to all floors. Bathrooms are basic and en suite; all have showers.
At first glance, the Opera appears unassuming and simple. And, look—it's legit, with a doorway covered in a typical Brussels art form, graffiti.
The lobby is a bit small, but has a comfy seating area. Newer fixtures at the Opera include a modern coffee machine in the breakfast room and brightly colored, contemporary paintings in the halls.
Breakfast is included.

About the Hotel Opera neighborhood
The undisputed tourist epicenter of Brussels, Grote Markt, or Grand Place, is an impressive square facing the medieval Town Hall. The always lively neighborhood is sprinkled with hotels, cutesy cafés, restaurants and chocolate shops. A maze of cobblestoned alleys leads to the opera house, a commercial drag or the gay district, depending on which turn you take.
