Who gives you fantastic skyline views? The Hotel.

A getaway in my own capital. Never done that before, but I just had to try the new kid on the block, The Hotel. It’s unique location, in the heart of Brussels, surrounded by the most exclusive shops, is just one of many trump cards of The Hotel. Fashion lovers, there’s really no better place to stay in our capital. The brand new hotel rises high above one of the most luxurious districts of Brussels with Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Dior just around the corner. Perfect for some serious shopping. The former Hilton hotel has had a total renovation, from past glory Hilton-style to bright, modern, stylish but yet cosy rooms, so you feel at home in a second. Thanks to a private underground car park, I entered The Hotel without parking stress. A mighty advantage to start of my stay at The Hotel.

The dark stylish lobby just breathes tranquility and elegance. The staff is really welcoming and with a glass of champagne I checked into the Deluxe Panorama Corner room. Quite curious I enter the elevator and off I go to the 24th floor. This sky high building reminds me of my trip to New York. But no time for daydreaming, my room’s waiting for me, located on the corner. I open the door and… hello Brussels! What a view. I’m flabbergasted, totally blown away by the 180° skyline city view of the capital. On my right I see Brussels courthouse. On my left I’m looking over Avenue Louise with beauty-heaven Senteur d’Ailleurs, a must-visit in Brussels if you love beauty.

I put on some home wear and immediately start exploring the room. First stop, the bath room. Hé, die hard beautylover over here, so very excited to see which amenities The Hotel has to offer. Shampoo, conditioner, body-wash and body lotion all the way from New York. C.O Bigelow is the name of the brand and The Hotel is apparently the only hotel in Europe working with these amenities. Approved big time! Also loving the huge rain shower with unforgettable view over Brussels.

All shades of white make the room look bright and spacious. I love the mix and match of cosy meets modern. Eye catcher in the room, except the view of course, is the wide white leather sofa, just next to the windows, where I quickly install myself with my laptop for some blogging. Honestly? Although I’ve got exclusive access to the Panorama Lounge, I stay in all night and order room service. Everything is provided to stay connected: fast, free, unlimited Wi-Fi, big ass television with on channel number one: Fashion TV. A bloggers dream. I just love this room.

Half an hour later my pizza gets delivered. The rotating oval table is just perfect, I didn’t even have to clean up my stuff on the other end. Just swing around the table and I can enjoy my pizza with a nice, cold Coca Cola from the complimentary minibar. Outside it is getting darker… Tonight it’s just me, my pizza, some drinks, my laptop and Brussels by night.

It’s already past midnight when I decide to put the blog on hold for a well deserved beauty sleep. I heard many good things about the mattresses of The Hotel. The bed is huge, the Egyptian cotton feels great on the skin and with an electronic device next to the bed I close the curtains and switch of all the lights. Sweet dreams!

7 am, good morning Brussels. I had an amazing beauty sleep. Last night, my head hit the pillow and I fell asleep. Not quite my habit in a strange bed. I hit snooze once again and open the curtains with the electronic device. No need to get out of bed just yet, I’m taking another minute to enjoy the view before hopping into the rain shower. I’m soo ready for breakfast!

Breakfast at The Hotel

A few floors higher you can find the breakfast room with tables facing the big windows. Oh, what to choose. Some eggs, some toast. I also fancy some fruit and the chocolate muffins are too tempting… Extra thumbs up for the fresh juice!

Unfortunately it’s time to check out after breakfast. I would like to stay a whole day and explore more of The Hotel. The room and all around views aren’t the only amazing features. Make sure you stop at the Panorama Lounge for a late-night drink, a quick lunch or just take a seat in their Fashion Library. Sky-high glamour? Yes sir! And speaking about glamour, how about an Urban Spa and Fitness overlooking Brussels? A little sweat ain’t never hurt nobody, so hit the gym for a workout and enjoy the sauna and hammam afterwards.

The Urban Spa

Whether you come to Brussels for a business trip or a weekend getaway, The Hotel offers you an amazing journey with breathtaking views, it’s unique location and luxurious rooms. Thank you to The Hotel for having me. It was a wonderful experience, and I’ll be back.
