Before becoming a trendy hotel in Brussels, Bloom was the playground for a multitude of artists who came from all over Europe. Letting their imaginations run wild, they transformed the place by indulging their passion.

Design Hotel


It was in 2007 that Hotel Bloom decided to let itself be the object of a unique and ingenious facelift. By asking 287 European artists and creative spirits to repaint its 305 rooms in whatever way they felt inspired, it has certainly succeeded in creating a modernist and original setting. The idea seemed excellent and the result remains truly astounding. The hotel has since become one of the most highly sought-after locations in the capital. Its rooms are divided into seven different styles, all sharing the same sense of taste and touch of elegance.

Modern and practical


The Twin room features unusual Russian dolls above the bed. It's the Matryoshkas that give it that extra something. The interior decor unites functional sobriety and something out of the ordinary. Whether you choose to snooze in one of these or in a King, Loft or even in a XL or XXL room, you will find clean lines and this simple, zen style of decoration which come together to ensure a very pleasant stay. For business users, the hotel boasts twelve conference rooms with free wifi. You can even take advantage of the OO! restaurant that prepares full and balanced breakfasts. The view over the Botanical Garden adds the final touch of magic.

Gabriel, 32 TENNIS PRO

I teach tennis in the city and also write about culture for a number of publications. I love to travel and meet people. My city? It's an improv concert in a down-to-earth bar, an exhibition built on a work site, a play performed in the heart of the old city... My little extra: combining sport and culture!
