Concierge.com's insider take:
This 18-room hotel aims to furnish traditional spaces in contemporary styles. Aficionados can have fun identifying big-name pieces: Ron Arad, Charles Eames, Ingo Maurer, Philippe Starck et al. are represented in furniture and fittings—and very handsome it all looks against the blue-gray walls and cranberry woodwork. Aside from said furniture and fittings, facilities are modest, though there's a comprehensive buffet breakfast (which you can take in the garden on fine days) and limited room service. The location could be either a drawback or a plus: It's in the southeast EU lands, nestled between the Quartier Léopold, and Parc du Cinquantenaire, en route to Tervuren—but if you're not here on Eurobusiness, there's a Métro on the doorstep to effect your escape.
