The 5 Best Hotels and Suites in Brussels

Since its recent opening Tenbosch House has already redefined standards of boutique luxury in Brussels.

With only seven suites it could hardly be any more boutique and each suite is given the attention it deserves with a private balcony or terrace and original Scandinavian furniture. The entire hotel acts like a living gallery, with contemporary artwork and mid-20th century Scandinavian furniture that seems to be the latest in interior fashion. With only seven suites, the hotel’s few occupants enjoy almost exclusive use of the private pool, sauna and bar. Since it is located in the Ixelles neighborhood, just south of the center, the creators of Tenbosch House saw no need to add a restaurant since some of Brussels’s finest eateries are nearby. Nevertheless, private dining can be arranged in the hotel with chefs brought in from neighboring restaurants if required.


Why we love it: The most spacious of Tenbosch’s seven suites is the Tenbosch Loft, which, as the name suggests, is located on the top floor of the hotel under the sloping eaves. From the suite, guests have private access to a large 215 square foot private terrace overlooking the courtyard garden below. The interior, as with the rest of the hotel, is furnished in 20th century Scandinavian furniture and contemporary art, but unique to this suite is a specially designed carpet from Kasthall and details from Georg Jensen.
