What I liked:

The room was full of light making it a delight to come back. The different rooms in the lobby gave it a home feeling and the service was incredibly generous. The breakfast, although pricey was very good. Cannot thank you enough for a wonderful stay in Belgium.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

40 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

There are hotels that bowl you over with their undeniable hotel-ness: the doorman, the bellhop, the smiling concierge and the hustling waiters, pushing room service carts up and down the corridors. And then there are places that are barely hotels at all, little more than a comfortable and exquisitely designed guest house, trading all the pomp for a more personal charm, privacy and intimacy.

De Witte Lelie, the White Lily, is quite plainly an example of the latter genre. Here three seventeenth-century canal houses have been joined together to create Antwerp’s most luxurious small hotel. You can take the name almost as literally as you like; the expansive public spaces are swathed in plush white rugs, sofas and armchairs, with more than a few lilies to be seen, and the guest rooms are white-on-white and lighter than air, contemporary rather than modernist, as stylish and elegant as any in this fashionable city.

That’s not a typo — Antwerp is not just a port city, and the European center of the diamond trade, but the epicenter of a Belgian fashion explosion as well, and your fellow guests at De Witte Lelie are just as likely to be stylists or designers as they are traveling businessmen or diamond importers. Let’s just say you may wish to consider dressing for the breakfast buffet.

After that, there’s little to be had in terms of services, but it would be churlish to complain. This is no urban resort, simply a stylish and exquisitely comfortable pied à terre from which to explore the museums, boutiques and restaurants of this charming city.
