Stylish modern deco that felt five-star. Booked for a special girlfriends reunion so wanted something swish. Excellent location and service was good. On getting into bed at 11pm, discovered that duvet had spattered blood stains - had been washed but stains were set in. Phone wasn't working properly so walked down to reception. They immediately sent someone up to change... More

We were so happy we selected this hotel. It's what you imagine Philipe Stark being inspired by. An old Dominican Monistary converted to a luxury hotel. Absolutely flawless - rooms were gorgeous with every amenity. The bar was great and the service was outstanding. Great location too - just a couple of blocks to walk to the square and a... More

This hotel was excellent. Clean, friendly and very helpful staff with a very good restaurant. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Really cannot fault the hotel at all and would very happily stay there again. Really good location, close to the main city centre sites and De Broukere Metro.
