Rustic Luxury Hotel Resides Above A Chocolate Shop

Rustic Luxury Hotel Resides Above A Chocolate Shop

Belgian B&B takes the rich elements of chocolate to influence its decor and design.

Betsy Mead

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory gets a real life makeover of sorts with an interesting new hotel in Belgium. The Concept Hotel, located in Brussels, is as close as you can get to living in a chocolate factory, minus the Oompa Loompas.

To enter the cozy hotel, which is meant to house excess guests from its larger sister, Le Coup De Coeur, one must pass through a boutique selling one of Belgium’s choicest exports–chocolate–and up a windy staircase. After that, guests can bask in the ambience of vintage decor that the rooms possess, all accented with demure hues and tastefully decorated with items that you might come across in a local bric-a-brac sale. Arnaud Rasquinet, who owns both the properties, intentionally left much of it alone, choosing only to make a few choice touches to emphasize the “rustic feel.”

It’s an exclusive place, though, about which¬†Design Tripper’s Megan McEwen states, “With three big bedrooms and a shared living room and kitchen, the Concept Hotel should really be called the Concept Inn or B&B.”
