The hotel is situated in a traditional brick building that was formerly a Brewery, directly on the canal and is credited with being the home of Tintin, Lucky Luke and the Smurfs.

You will stay in one of the hotel's 170 modern non-smoker rooms at a comfortable 3-star-standard. An all-you-can-eat-and-drink breakfast buffet awaits you in the morning. A self serve guest kitchen is also at your disposal, where you'll find a stove, microwave oven and kitchen utensils, as well as washers and dryers. The hotel bar, snack machines and the reception are there to provide you with information, small snacks and drinks. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, and if you don't have your own laptop with you, our internet terminals are located in the lobby next to the gallery. If you've had your fill of sightseeing and are looking for entertainment in the hotel, you can meet people from all over the world over a game of kicker, billiards or wii.

We have single, double and multiple-bed rooms or dormitories, and bed linens are included. All rooms have their own 3-piece bathrooms and television.

Opening May 1, 2013!
