Early 20th-century hotel has modern facilities, traditional hospitality
The Hotel Van Belle is owned and personally run by the Van Belle family, who guarantee a friendly and attentive welcome. The modern façade fronts a 1906 building where, inside, touches of modernism meet family antiques. The guest lounge with a traditional fireplace evokes the hotel's original atmosphere. The commitment to personal service includes two free shuttles -- to the Gare du Midi (Eurostar) rail station and to the historic Grand Place (evenings only). A generous American breakfast is free to guests.
