Hygge is nestled in an old mansion house in the heart of Brussels. It has managed to combine authenticity, harmony and conviviality and is steeped in history. Preserving the original heritage and architecture, the hotel surprises us with its high ceilings and majestic staircase. As its name Hygge suggests, the ambiance and atmosphere of the hotel has been carefully created. Hygge, is a philosophy or state of mind, of Scandinavian origin, which is cozy, intimate, relaxed and convivial. It is an art of living where well-being is promoted.
The layout and decoration of the hotel is therefore completely focused on this convivial, warm and intimate aspect. Numerous Scandinavian artists and decorators have participated in the creation of this Nordic atmosphere which fits perfectly in Brussels. The decoration is refined, green and advocates intimacy, combining wood, metal and fabrics in pastel tones. And it is indeed this warm, friendly and cozy feeling that we encountered while visiting the hotel.
The hotel is located a stone's throw from Avenue Louise and Boulevard de la Toison d'Or. It has 59 rooms of two types: the "relax" rooms, nestled in the Hôtel de Maitre area, with high ceilings and large period windows, and the "cozy" rooms, found in the new building, with lower ceilings and a more cocoon-like atmosphere. All rooms and bathrooms have been decorated in the same style. The pastel blue and white tones are in harmony with the light wood furniture. The floors and walls of the bathrooms are covered with beautiful blue and white tiles, Portuguese "azulejo" style, which gives them more luminosity, and the beauty products found in the bathrooms are "Caudalie". The hotel has a large lobby and breakfast area allowing you to work in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. There is also a terrace, accessible from the lobby, where you can enjoy the sun when it is shining.
Breakfast is available as an option but is better value if you select it when making your reservation. It is served as a buffet breakfast in the large dining room with high period moulded ceilings. There is something for all tastes and the products served are fresh. The receptionists also play the role of concierge and will be able to answer your questions
THE little extra
Quality and affordable hotel in the centre of Brussels, ideally connected and located for working or exploring the city. The quiet and peaceful setting of the hotel allows guests to relax and enjoy their stay. We have a soft spot for the wooden terrace at the back which allows you to enjoy the sun and take a breath of fresh air away from the urban hustle and bustle, a small haven of peace.
