THE STORY: Behind the imposing red door of this immaculate 17th-century building in Antwerp’s historic center, the De Witte Lelie hotel keeps its cards close to its chest! Because once inside, you’re in for an unexpected eyeful: eclectic and intensely colorful decor that’s extravagant to put it mildly, dreamt up by designer Axel Vervoordt. Discover cozy lounges centered around fireplaces, a very intimate Bronze Bar and a lovely courtyard with blooming hydrangeas. As for the bedrooms, they can be counted on less than ten fingers, ranging from the Classic to the Luxury room, with ostentatious but chic and spellbinding decor, not to mention the luminous and spacious suites equipped with their own private terraces giving out onto the city’s steeples… This is certainly one take on urban luxury! Double rooms starting at €265.50 a night. // Mado Réassouet
