Vibe: Bold, Brutalist, Artsy.
Area: Next to the Botanical Garden, just north of the city centre proper.
The DNA: Going through various incarnations (last the Bloom Hotel), the brutalist nhow Brussels Bloom originally opened as the Hyatt Regency Brussels in 1976. It is now being turned into an art hotel by NH Hotels’ lifestyle brand with each floor inspired by a different art form. The first renovated (7th floor) is by London-based Jessica Thacker, known for her abstract music-inspired paintings. Gradually the other floors by other artists will follow.
Suite-Me-Up: In the ‘Loft in the Sky’ duplex suites there’s no need to travel light: these come with their own dressing rooms and matching raw urban views.
