A hotel sometimes feels like an afterthought when planning a trip. We understand it can be a chore.
We believe that a good hotel can be a big part of the experience. And to prove it, we’ve put together a guide to the best hotels in Brussels.
Made in Louise
Made in Louise is family-owned, which is where it gets its personal charm from. It borrows its name from Avenue Louise, the boutique shopping area on its doorstep.
The hotel is styled in that vein. Decadently stylish, all 48 rooms are different with their own sense of identity.
If you’re looking for personality and chic accommodation, Brussels can be very proud of Made in Louise.
Hygge Hotel is named after the Scandinavian concept ‘hygge’ (pronounced hoo-ga). It refers to feelings of being cosy, content, and taking pleasure in simple things. The design of the hotel follows this concept, underpinned by minimalism, functionality and simplicity.
The Hygge Hotel offers a wide-ranging international breakfast. They also offer a full menu of Scandinavian food, with classics like herring, meatballs, and a whole host of dishes with surprising depth.
You can find it in the Louise area. If you’re looking for a homely hotel that’s good for your well being and comfort, the Hygge might be for you.
Book Your Hotel Rooms
The nearby botanical gardens inspire Hotel Indigo. Their 284 darling rooms are decorated in one of three botanical themes: floral, herbal and tropical. Each room is stocked with amenities such as coffee machines, strong WiFi, high-quality air conditioning systems and mini-fridges.
Following the theme of the room design, the menu features locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.
Jam Hotel is a former art school that is now a seriously cool hotel. Their mission is to put everything you could want in one place.
Their pride and joys are their rooftop pool and their pizzas. The building itself sparks joy too. They’ve taken an uninspiring concrete building and turned it into a lively place to be. Their use of wood and colour works wonders.
The rooms come with a flat-screen tv and private bathrooms, and range in size to suit your needs. You also have free access to the gym next door.
Designed in a palatial style, Steigenberger Hotel is a grand hotel indeed.
The rooms are all chic contemporary wonders with flat-screen TVs and limited Wi-Fi. They also have sitting areas and Nespresso machines. Suites add free minibars; some offer kitchens, butler service and membership at a nearby health club.
It has a rich history and is in the heart of Avenue Louise’s premium shopping. If you’d rather indulge in doing nothing, we highly recommend the terrace area for some first-class lounging.
Harmon House is a private mansion with 27 rooms. They’ve gone to great efforts to make it feel snug and convivial for you. It’s a simple and elegant motif, where the genius is in the small details. You’ll even get hot and cold lighting so you can tailor the atmosphere to your mood.
The Harmon is a good location to work from, whether alone or with your colleagues. You’ll find yourself in an original, soft, and relaxing environment. And after all your work is done, they have super fun events like stand up comedy and live music.
You can also rent spaces in the hotel for private events. Make use of their lovely bar and international foods on their menu.
Hotel Amigo has been known to host stars of business, film and politics. But it’s not totally exclusive; it’s for anyone who fancies it.
Its location is ideal for strolling through the most historic parts of the city. They seal the deal – and your business – by offering a divine breakfast and even greater service.
And we would be remiss not to tell you Brussels hotels know no better skybar than Hotel Amigos!
Pillows Hotel is the perfect marriage of contemporary and elegant. Sixty-seven stylish hotel rooms, two family rooms and one suite are up for grabs.
The rooms are fully fitted with all the amenities you could need. The beds are of outstanding quality as well, so you’ll be ready to tackle the city when you wake up.
Pillows like to charm their guests with nuanced personal attention, and lovely meals at any time of the day.
The Pillows Hotel has some great spaces. If you’re looking to host a meeting, conference or event, they have everything you need.
Whichever hotel you choose, it’s clearly going to be hard to leave. We’ve deemed them the best hotels in Brussels for a reason, after all.
