design and elegant hotel in the heart of Brussels, under the rooftops of Belgium’s historical heritage                 


Frequented by many fascinated tourists in front of the windows of Belgian chocolate makers and luxury accessories stores, the "Galeries Royales" de Bruxelles gave us a warm feeling, like being on holiday in our own city. 
Through the hotel’s glass front door, hidden in " Rue des Bouchers", the new manager gave us a friendly wave. She then led us behind the discreet but bright reception to give us a tour of the hotel, and we instantly fell in love with the elegance brought by interior designer Camille Flammarion.


Building a hotel in the rooftops of the famous "Galeries Royales" was an audacious move, but this picturesque hotel has successfully maintained and respected the building’s authenticity and heritage. The challenge was undertaken by a Frenchwoman, who already had a collection of charming hotels in France. The Parisian touch can be felt inside the hotel, whilst the white, bright and spacious rooms offer a homely feeling. There are old creaking floors, authentic painted beams, designer accessories and furniture, Flammarion edition art books and pretty works of art hanging on the walls. But above all, we fell in love with the magnificent tiling of the bathrooms in shades of green that perfectly match the surroundings.

THE service

In addition to the spacious and bright rooms, the hotel restaurant has a friendly and inviting feel with welcoming staff and a view of the kitchen. The hotel also offers an attractive interior courtyard, with vintage furniture perfect for enjoying breakfast, coffee or simply reading your newspaper.

THE hosts

During our visit we were lucky enough to meet the hotel manager, Fenna, a charming young woman passionate about her job, who recently decided to take over the reins of the hotel.    


We found the hotel to use a high quality of products and decor. The restaurant offers delicate cuisine, using fresh and seasonal produce.


The combination of location and tasteful, quality interior design while respecting the heritage in which the hotel is located.
