Boulevard Leopold B&B, Antwerp $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
At first glance, it appears there's nothing modern about the three lavishly appointed guest rooms and two apartments in this romantic Jewish Quarter brownstonevelvet chesterfield sofas, claw-foot bathtubs, beveled picture windows, and giant marble mantels capture a fin de siècle glory. But a closer inspection reveals high-tech gas fireplaces, flat-screen TVs with DVD players, and hidden espresso machines. Restored lovingly by owners Bert Verschueren, a former chef for Neuze Neuze, and designer Vincent Defontaines, the Leopold exudes an imperial history of privilege and comfort that's not so easily re-created in the modern age.
