Belgium's charms are frequently underplayed, even by loyal Belgians. But if you dismiss this country as just good for beer, chocolate and the European Parliament you'll be the one missing out. Belgium is perfect for those who like the finer, more beautiful things in life, but without the attitude of, say, the French. And many of the best places to stay in Belgium reflect this with their understated service and charming yet chic interiors.
Bruges and Ghent are famed architectural beauties packed with wonderful art, Brussels is rife with fascinating museums and a very lively multicultural cultural life and Antwerp has long been a key trading port - and of course it has the diamonds.
These cities are some of the best places to stay in Belgium if you're looking for a city break, or you only have a few days, but if you get out into the undeniably flat countryside you'll find your visit even more rewarding.
Northern Belgium, oft called Dutch-speaking Flanders, is the flatter region, dotted with pretty towns and cities and significant battlefields. Leuven is an ancient university town, known for its brewing, while Ypres is best known for its war memorials.
Southern Belgium is French speaking, called Wallonia, and this is the more rural of the two, a great place to see by bike. This is the countryside of the Ardennes Forest and Spa, the elegant small town which put the 'spa' into spa-town.
Brussels: Beyond the Bureaucrats
Don't let the European Parliament put you off, Brussels isn't at all bland. This multicultural city is packed with art and design, good food and a very independent cultural flavour, influenced by its international meting pot of inhabitants. It is also home to many of the best places to stay in Belgium.
- Close to the Abbey of la Cambre, the National Geographic Institute and the Avenue Louise, Made in Louise is an unfussily elegant townhouse with lots of natural light and choice of local beers.
- For more traditional decor, try Le Dixseptieme. Two minutes from the Grand Palace, this hotel has four poster beds, fireplaces and wooden floors - but it's refined not opulent.
- If you're looking for somewhere you can feel like it's just the two of you, then have a look at the three bedroom B&B, X2Brussels. Close to the main sights, and also the fashionable Dansaert area, this B&B has large airy rooms done in white. It's simple. And reasonable. And most important, intimate.
Antwerp: For the Diamonds, Banks and Art
Antwerp has a historic reputation for fine living: this city had held an important spot on key trade route since the 16th Century - which is also when many of Antwerp's most grand and glorious buildings were built.
The art came in the 17th Century, when the city inspired the likes of Rubens and Van Dyck. Antwerp's more recent pursuit is fashion. Many of Antwerp's main sights are within the old walls - about a 2km radius.
- Book The Glorious Inn if you're looking for something traditionally Belgian. This old inn only has three rooms, and they all have glorious details - wonderful antiques and art, and cracking original features. And it's on top of one of Antwerp's trendiest concept stores.
- For the ultimate in intimate urban simplicity try the Hotel Matelote's airy, loft style rooms. These and the charms of the 16th Century building speak for themselves.
- For unfussy city style perfectly located in the shopping and fashion district, you can't go past Sleeping at Linnen's three rooms.
Bruges: Tiny yet Aesthetically Perfect
Bruges is one of Europe's best preserved pre-motorised cities. A charming warren of cobbled streets, vast churches, canals lined with gorgeous old warehouses, a spectacularly lovely main square and chocolate shops. Lots and lots of chocolate shops. And beer. And waffles. And moules and frite. But mostly beautiful, romantic architecture and lots of the the best places to stay in Belgium!
- Right on the canal, just around the corner from the Basilica of the Holy Blood, you'll find Die Swaene. Sophisticated and historically listed, this hotel also has a Michelin Bib Gourmand recommendation.
- If you're looking for somewhere small and personal try Number 11, for its tasteful decor and quiet courtyard.
- If you love chintzy luxury and old fashioned manor house hotels, the Hotel de Orangerie is probably for you. It's right on the canal - the boat trips leave from just outside its tea rooms.
Gorgeous, Romantic Ghent
Ghent's beautiful canal-side architecture makes it look similar to Bruges, but more intimate and romantic. And with significantly less visitors!
- Around the corner from Castle Gravensteen and St. Bavo Cathedral and right on the canal, Hotel Harmony has some of the best views of Ghent in Ghent.
- With only four gorgeous rooms in an 18th Century mansion house, Hotel Verhaegen, run by two interior designers, is a romantically restored haven of charm.
