During our trip to visit Ethnicraft’s headquarters, we spent a night at this perfect modern city hotel that exudes charm, modernity and sophistication.

Hotel Julien is located in the city center of Antwerp and within walking distance of restaurants, museums and designer stores. The hotel is hidden behind large grey wooden doors with a lovely courtyard in the middle. The owner Mouche van Hool, an interior designer turned hotelier, jointed 2 historical buildings and made them into a 21-room hotel with a roof terrace overlooking cathedral views on top.

The decor is elegant and minimal with some antique furniture mixed in with Eames and other mid-century modern pieces. Each room at Hotel Julien (named after van Hool’s son) is uniquely decorated and filled with essential amenities. The wine cellar on the basement was converted into a spa for those who want to be pampered during their stay.

In the morning, breakfast is laid beautifully on white Carara marble counters for guests to help themselves along with juices and hot beverages. Also, our favorite shop and restaurant Graanmarkt 13, the famous Da Giovanni steakhouse, Cathedral of Our Lady and Museum aan de Stroom are all nearby.
