The hotel and its history
The hotel is a veritable work of art, crafted and sculpted by time. In the 14th century the building stood on what was the first road in Brussels, linking the upper to the lower city. In 1695, the Marechal de Villeroy bombarded the center of Brussels on the orders of Louis XIV. The houses you see now were rebuilt later that year. One can still admire the wooden framework of this epoque in the timber rooftops of the hotel and in its majestic staircase, which dates from the 17th century, classified as having particular architectural merit.
