The Hotel. is located on the fashionable Boulevard de Waterloo in central Brussels, where most world renowned luxury lifestyle brands are located. The Grand Place and Brussels tourist center are within walking distance, the European Commission just a 10-minute drive away. The Hotel. is also just 20 minutes from Brussels International Airport and 8 minutes from South Station (Eurostar, TGV, Thalys).
The 27-storey building dates from 1967 and was named ‘The Hotel.’ on February 1st, 2011, following the takeover by Pandox AB, the Swedish hotel investment company. The Hotel. offers 421 renovated rooms and suites, a super The Urban Spa & Fitness on the 23rd floor and “The restaurant by Pierre Balthazar” with a innovative food concept and bar & lounge on the ground floor. The interior is inspiring, stylish and innovative and regardless of what floor you are on, the view of The Hotel. on the city of Brussels is simply phenomenal.
The rooms are well designed some offering an open bathroom so you can bathe whilst looking at the view. The decor is stylish whites and creams offset with dark woods and mirrors. The beds are very comfortable with mountains of pillows. The shower is both powerful and large shower and the CO Bigelow toiletries are a delight. If you opt for a Deluxe panorama room you will get access to the Club Lounge on the 24th floor with ever more breathtaking views. The Club Lounge also offers an excellent breakfast, afternoon snack and pre dinner drinks.
My favourite in the rooms is the ability to control various zones of lighting and to lower a curtain all electronically to keep the sunlight out in the morning and to choose the perfect lighting for the evening. My favourite feature of the hotel is the “sauna with a view” (see picture below). I have such a great fondess of Belgium having been bought up there and I truly think it is only the Belgiun mindset that could come up with a sauna with a birds eye view of Brussels. Brilliant!
