Hotel O, Antwerp
The Hunters are very often in Antwerp. It’s only about a 2 hour drive, a different country, good hospitality, amazing stores and good hotels. Hunter Niels was so happy when he discovered this hotel: HotelO.
Hotel O is located on different locations. The once that I (Hunter Niels) visited was in Antwerpen Sud. Sud (South) is the neighborhood where all the trendy restaurants, vintage stores and designer shops are located. Hotel O is located in a beautiful authentic white building, opposite the Royal Museum of Fine Arts. The hotel is designed by the famous Antwerp architect Jo Peeters. About the rooms, there are three different rooms: Deluxe (27m), Eco (32m) and Sensual
(35m). And not to mention the Deluxe Suite (43m).
I stayed in the Eco room. Don’t ask me why, this was just the only room left. However I don’t regret it at all! The room felt like a loft since everything (except of the restroom) was open. The complete room was decorated in natural earth tones: in grey, brown and sand. The layout of the room is special. The bathroom is next to the bedroom, and a couple of steps lower than the rest of the room. As a result the top of the bubble bath is on the same hight as the main floor. So while you’re taking a bath you see you’re boyfriend or girlfriend on the bed, or in the shower. The room is amazing, it’s spacious, light and modern.
The hall to the hotel rooms is the opposite dark and small. The doors of the hotel room aren’t regular either. They are lightned which remind of an old masters painting. Waiting at the reception in Hotel O is no punishment. They offer a closet full of designer goodies, from designer sunglasses and candles to dildo’s (don’t ask me why)
Brasserie Nero is located in the same building as the hotel, although it looked good I didn’t went here since I prefer going for a walk and spot some other places. Hotel O is a must see for Antwerp, design and life lovers.
