In 2002, a new project begins to see daylight. The decision was made to triple the number of rooms; introducing comfort and modernity in a new original way. This unique idea was to create a thematic hotel representing a real world tour. In order to make this dream come true, Michael decided to put down his toque, put away his pots and pans and close his restaurant for good.
The couple concentrated only on the development of the hotel.
They needed to construct 2 new floors and extend the house.
New rooms were completely assembled in Gand (Gent) and transported by trucks to the hotel to be “placed” on top of the old horse stables.
In 15 days, the entire project was completed; a feat for the engineers, the architect, the designer and contractors!
The restaurant was thus dismantled in 2003 in order to facilitate the reception area and Breakfast Room.
The last and final room, The Family Belgian Room was the next to be started.
Year after year, the decorations were refined, comfort was improved, all in line with modern technology and respect for the environment.
The originality and especially the authenticity (almost all of the objects come from the owners’ various journeys around the world) remains the pillars of the Brussels Welcome Hotel concept, all aimed at making you dream.
