Clean room and good bed. However, conditioner was not working, so we needed to sleep with an open window on one of the noisiest streets of the Brussels. So, did not have a good sleep ... Dear, La Mort Subite, please repair your conditioners

Fantastic range of beers, table service with friendly, funny and efficient waiters. If I had to be critical then I would say that it’s cramped and that is closes too early! Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Brussels centre.

The place keeps the touch of history and offers a good choice of local beers. Prices are moderate and the service is good. Probably not a place to eat but certainly is good for drinks

Really a nice brasserie, noisy and busy as it should be. This is the place the Beer Mort Subite was born. You step into to this place and you are sent back in 1902. A fantastic experience, a beautiful place.

You step into a little piece of history when you enter this bar, décor is authentic, waiters and waitresses know their trade and clientele - so expect to banter! Order a beer or three you have never heard of and...., be rewarded with an experience...More

Only a few minutes walk from the central station is this wonderful place. Original atmosphere of a cafe, bar, offering a wide variety of beers. It is a drinking and talking place that has to be part of your Brussel itinerary.

The Mort Subite, is one of Brussels oldest bars. The Mort Subite Geuze is served at room temperature, and is something to be savoured.
