Antwerp is known to be the most stylish city in Belgium. From classy boutiques to Michelin starred restaurants, the city knows style. This also extends to its hotels. During my recent trip to Antwerp, we stayed at Hotel Les Nuits, located in the heart of the Antwerp shopping district.
All about our stay at Hotel Les Nuits
The Vibe: Hotel Les Nuits is a small boutique hotel. The vibe is very cozy, starting with the front desk staff meeting you at the elevator to start your check-in process. The small reception area is fashionable with modern furniture yet homey. Make note that the hotel offers a complimentary tapas hour at 5pm.
The Location: Location, location, location! If you’re looking to explore the city mostly by foot, Hotel Les Nuits provides the perfect location. If you need to get around via public transportation, there’s a tram stop directly in front of the hotel.
The Room: Our room was tastefully decorated in a Chinese lacquer style, with sleek dark hues.. The large window brought tons of natural light. The bed was large and comfy and my favorite part was the quality of the linens. They were soft, fluffy, and smelled wonderful. We informed the hotel ahead of time that we were traveling with the baby and when we arrived to our room, a crib was fully assembled and ready, which was a very nice touch. The only point for improvement is that some of the furniture pieces look a bit dated but still fit well in the overall aesthetic of the room.
The Food: We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast during our stay. I’m a sucker for a good hotel breakfast and Hotel Les Nuits delivered. The elegant buffet included smoked salmon, selection of cheese, bread, smoothies, fresh fruit, among other classic breakfast staples. The staff also prepares eggs on demand. I’m still thinking about their scrambled eggs with fresh herbs!
Hotel Les Nuits: The verdict
I must say that I was hesitant to stay at a boutique hotel with a baby in tow, but the hotel was so attentive to our every need. It felt like we were staying with very stylish friends! I also enjoyed the attention to detail: the hotel has unique postcards for guests to send to their loved ones back home that they even mail for you.
