Hotel Review: Odette en Ville, Brussels
In the fashionable Ixelles district, to the south of the city, this smart townhouse hotel has been given a classy look in shades of grey and black, from the thick-pile carpets, velvet chairs and sofas to the walls, ceilings and shiny-topped bar. Luxurious but minimalist bedrooms follow the same theme while the restaurant delivers a classic French menu.
Rooms available from £318.33 per night

THE LOOK AND FEEL
The classy black-on-grey colours - dimly lit walls, lacquered doors, thick carpets, velvet-upholstered chairs, shiny-topped bar - give the feeling that this 1920s townhouse is a private members' club.
Staff are discreet but professional and know the area well. The outside terrace is great for people-watching.
