Hip hotel with loft-style interiors, a members club vibe and a super-central location
Located right next to Brussels Central Station, this hip hotel is true to its moniker: It's about as central as you get in the Belgian capital. Behind a traditional townhouse, the interiors are part loft-style apartment, part members club, with concrete beams, exposed brickwork and open-plan spaces. The 24/7 reception area features a glass-fronted music lounge with low-hanging exposed lightbulbs, stools in the shape of giant corks, large desk lamps, vintage trunks fashioned into tables and nooks and crannies stuffed with arty books.
Bed and Bath
Impeccably clean, the 47 guestrooms are simple yet chic, with exposed brick walls, sisal flooring and beds topped with crisp white linen. In place of bulky wardrobes you'll find rails and drawers made from stacked wooden crates. The utilitarian workbench-style desks are livened up with candles and fresh flowers in some rooms, and the white-on-white tile bathrooms come with teeny tubs or showers (suites come with both), fluffy white towels and cool white ceramic stools. The Anyah bath products are eco friendly.
There’s no restaurant, but a hearty hot and cold breakfast buffet and afternoon tea are served daily in the communal dining room, and the lounge bar is open 24/7. Light streams in through the huge windows, and there's a sharing table under smart white lamps that hang low from the exposed concrete ceilings. Dig into delicious pastries and piles of fruit before heading out to explore the city center, which is right on the doorstep. There’s also a small business center on the ground floor.
In the Area
Given the hotel's central location in the Museum District, many of Brussels’s cultural highlights are right on your doorstep. Within a 10-minute walk you'll find the Magritte Museum, home to the largest collection of works by the Belgian surrealist; the House of Comics, a tribute to the art form and a celebration of Belgian cartoons, including Tin Tin and the Smurfs; and the Centrale Gallery, for contemporary art. Don’t miss the incredible intricate architecture of the Grand Place and Neuhaus, in the Gallerie de la Reine, a family-run chocolatier that was founded in 1857 and invented the praline.
