During my trip to Belgium I had the luxury of staying in the Vintage Hotel. It’s generally regarded as one of the city’s most stylish and best-designed hotels (gay-friendly, too!). The hotel is located just off Brussels’ most fashionable shopping street, Avenue Louise. With 29 unique bedrooms, the Vintage Hotel is probably one of the best boutique hotels I’ve stayed in. Each room is decorated with individual pieces of design furniture from the 20th century.
And just to make the boutique hotel even more interesting, the Vintage Hotel has an Airstream trailer available to sleep in. They’ve produced a beautiful video showcasing “glamping in Brussels.”
What is glamping?
It’s simple: it’s camping in a glamourous way. And if you’re that stereotypical hipster, the one that cares about latest fashion trends and which band is hot, it’s really the only type of camping you might expect to do. I was never much a camper myself, but if camping involves staying in a vintage Airstream trailer, than I’m definitely down.
At the Vintage Hotel, if you choose to go glamping, you’ll be staying in the trailer parked in front of reception. It’s a really cool experience. I filmed a short video of the trailer, which is available on YouTube:
This hotel is highly recommended if you’re looking for a cool and hip hotel experience in Brussels!
