Concierge.com's insider take:
This business travelers' secret is centrally located in the pleasant Oude Stad neighborhood on a crooked street lined with furniture boutiques, quiet restaurants, and Flemish bookshops. Guests can sit in the lush garden patio (ideal for summer breakfasts) or lounge in the cozy nautical-themed lobby for a complimentary glass of port or sherry on arrival. There's no restaurant attached, but room service is available from a choice of neighborhood eateries. The 36 spacious rooms and suites are furnished with a mix of modern and antique pieces, including comfy Treca de Paris beds, and marble baths. Rooms overlook the garden; request one with a view of the belfry at St. Paul's Cathedral.
