As the name suggests, this unique hotel in the heart of Brussels has 29 vintage rooms – all vintage-style and featuring notable designs and objects from the last century. However, I’m most excited about the chance to stay in a genuine Airstream Trailer dating from 1958. My partner and I stayed here in between Christmas and New Year’s Eve 2012. And it was fantastic. Very comfortable and cosy and warm, despite the weather being cold. All the other guests at the hotel were intrigued by the Airstream Trailer, parked in the courtyard (but very secure), and wanted to take a peek inside so that broke the ice and we met quite a few people. It was also wonderful to leaf through the coffee table book on Airstream Trailers. As a plus: the hotel is a short taxi ride away from Brussel-Zuid/Midi (the Eurostar/Thalys station) and in a really charming neighbourhood. And the price included a very munchable breakfast in the morning. Would defo stay here again. Watch the movie about it here: www.vintagehotel.be/en/glamping.
