THE STORY: Tucked away in a historic corner building overlooking the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, dreamt up by interior designer Sam Peeters (who founded Contekst agency) and Christophe Ysewyn, the space (named after Ernest Hemingway’s nickname for his wife Pauline Pfeiffer, and later his yacht…) beautifully combines works of art and comfortable digs. The bedrooms, from the Classic room to the extremely luxurious Suite, are all spacious, bathed in natural light and high-ceilinged, decorated with carefully chosen modern furniture and boasting sublime views of the museum, the lush green park or even the hip Zuid neighborhood. The cherry on top? The restaurant/bar and its thunderously good cuisine. Double rooms starting at €165 a night. // Mado Réassouet
