Luxuous boutique hotel in Antwerp

A charming hotel in the heart of the vibrant and fashionable Zuid district of Antwerp in BELGIUM 





The discreet entrance to Maison Nationale on Antwerp's famous "nationalestraat" encouraged us to explore it. On entering the premises and reaching the end of the long white entrance corridor, we were greeted by Tom, the founder and owner of the hotel. He warmly welcomed us to his establishment and led us down sleek black metal steps to the reception area, in the basement of the building. We were immediately impressed with the design and high-end decor of the hotel and overwhelmed by Tom’s friendliness.


Tom talked us through the creation and launch of his hotel; his family owned the 1902 townhouse which it is based in. It has the typical high ceilings, wooden floorboards and a classic façade, all still very well preserved. Prior to opening six years ago, the house was renovated and decorated by the renowned Antwerp architect firm, Sculp-it. Tom then explains the concept he has chosen to name and decorate each room. The eight rooms on offer are ‘living paintings.’ In the bedrooms, the bathroom and the office are raised in large white frames. You get the feeling you are entering a new room each time. The same concept of framing can even be found in the hotel's stairwell, where the local fashion scene is highlighted. The rooms, in shades of anthracite grey and white, are naturally bright. The brick walls have been preserved and repainted in white, and to top it all off, the bathrooms are equally spacious and modern.

THE service

Don't worry, although the hotel does not offer catering services, the vibrant neighbourhood is full of trendy and typical "antwerpen" restaurants (to name a few: Ciro's, t'Hofke, L'amitié). Tom will gladly recommend places to go. It is however possible to have breakfast delivered to your room from a local coffee shop for 14,5 eur.  


Tom, a charming and calm host, gave us a warm welcome and introduced us to his hotel with passion. It is with his wife, Karen, that he created and now manages the hotel. Having had a career where he was abroad four days a week, the idea was to create a homely environment away from home. They are both present at the hotel to welcome you 6 days out of 7, from 9am to 5pm. 


The hotel is powered by solar energy and a heat pump. In addition, ecological products are used for the maintenance of the rooms and bedding.  


We would like to highlight the quality of the products available in each room. Tom and Karen offer beauty products from the Dutch brand "moooi", which only trades with luxury hotels. Moreover, the bedding is of high quality, the "Boxspring" beds come from Switzerland and the sheets are 100% Egyptian cotton.


From 120€ to 180€ depending on the room and if it's during the week or weekend
