Le Dixsèptieme, Brussels, Belgium
Stepping distance from the Grand Place, the capital's big and perpetually busy central showpiece, Le Dixsèptieme is discreetly tucked away, and offers a quiet and elegant refuge. Its low-key frontage gives no clue to the size of the hotel, a mix of 17th-century grandeur at the front and skilfully blended modern extensions tucked behind. The latter also hides a courtyard garden. Choose between traditional bedrooms and suites with original features of wood-panelling and carved plasterwork, or sleeker bedrooms with a contemporary lightness. Public rooms, in the older part, have a gentle refinement that typifies the atmosphere and service throughout the hotel. It's breakfast only but a generous spread, and there's a discreet bar service in the lounge for pre- or after-dinner drinks.
When you've had enough of sightseeing, head for the nearby Le Cercle des Voyageurs, a laidback bar in Rue des Grands Carmes, tucked away to the west of the Grand Place.
Both the Cathedral and the Grand Place are under 10 minutes' walk away.
By plane: there are direct flights from London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and Birmingham. The hotel is a 25-minute drive from the airport.
By train: the Eurostar goes direct from London St Pancras to Brussels (2 hours). The terminal is a 10-minute drive from the hotel.
Style & Character
This hotel is ideal for people who want to be in the centre of the city, amongst the buzz and the main sights, but with a quiet retreat to which to return. We love the feeling of calm and tranquillity as soon as you step off the pavement and slip behind the discreetly signed door.
Service & Facilities
The bar is very discreet - tucked behind a door by reception - and staff simply come and find you in one of the two lounges or garden.
