Fodor's Expert Review Be Manos

Sq. de l'aviation 23-27, Brussels, Brussels Capital, B1000, Belgium Fodor's Choice

The most stylish of Brussels's boutique offerings, this design hotel is just a short walk from the Midi Railway Station and oozes class despite the rather plain urban sprawl of its location. Convenience (next to the Thalys and Eurostar Terminal) is the keyword here, but rarely for such a hotel has so much effort and thought gone into the look. Crisp, monochrome walls and furniture are broken up by pops of color and the occasional splash of disco chic. The rooms are huge, with sliding glass-door bathrooms and grand beds backed by imposing leather headboards. Photography by Carol Kohen, lighting by Modiss, and chairs from Danish designer Verner Panton are scattered throughout. There is even a wellness center with steam room and sauna. Take it all in while you sip a mojtio in the cocktail lounge.

PROS

  • gorgeously designed building and rooms
  • you get a lot for the price
  • ideally located if you've got to travel

CONS

  • it's a bit of a walk to the center
