Hotel Julien

Nowhere in Antwerp combines period grandeur with understated contemporary design like the esteemed Hotel Julien. This charming and centrally located boutique guest house has precious interior designs, including the charming library (filled with piles of international magazines and art books) where freshly brewed coffee and Belgian chocolates are available at any hour. The 11 bedrooms include a superb cosy attic retreat. Each has a homely feeling which even extends to the bathrooms with their unique Moroccan plastering sure to warm your feet. Try to reserve a room with a private terrace and view of the historic city’s rooftops and spires (number 7 is perfect for this).
