THE STORY: Tucked away in a former Augustinian cloister at the heart of Antwerp’s pedestrian district, and pimped out by Flemish architect Vincent Van Duysen, the August hotel is one helluva good spot! This heritage-listed building’s breathtaking interiors are currently home to some very chic bedrooms painted sober and elegant tones (cream, anthracite grey, sage green). They all strike a similar vibe without looking identical, even those nestled under the rooftop. This temple to good taste also boasts a bar in the former chapel with incredibly well-preserved stained glass windows, an utterly charming neo-bistro, and an unexpected garden, not to mention a wellness space that’ll have you thanking the heavens above… Something of a sanctuary for modern times! Double rooms starting at €190 a night. // Mado Réassouet

TOILETRIES: Le Labo shampoo, body wash and soap.
BREAKFAST: A very refined, all-you-can-eat buffet included in the price of your room, featuring coffee or tea, viennoiseries, fresh fruit, charcuterie, eggs prepared in the style of your choosing…
LITTLE LUXURY: When the weather’s nice, swim a few laps in the hotel’s small but sublime natural pool.
