This was my second stay at the Fashion Hotel and I can thoroughly recommend it. Though it is someway out of the city centre (20 mins by tram) it provides as excellent base, certainly if like me you are in the city on business. A very regular tram service passes the hotel and it is only a 10 minute walk to the Lelylaan train and metro station.
At first sight the hotel doesn't look particularly inviting as it's a modern block alongside the city ring road. Even when you enter reception it looks rather stark, but the check-in is friendly and efficient. The rooms are also very comfortable and a reasonable size. They have a good shower and full size bath though some guests may be rather put off by the fact the bathroom door is next to the bed and is made of glass, so no privacy.
Wi-fi is excellent and the TV has an extensive range of channels including BBC1. There is also a mini bar and ironing board.
The hotel has two bars, one at lobby level and a cocktail bar on the 10th floor. The lobby bar is very pleasant with a good selection of drinks and bar food. For me though the hotel restaurant is the real star. It offers fine dining at a reasonable price (20-30 euros for a main course) a good wine list and again the service from the young staff is excellent. They are able to tell you about the food and wine which makes a change these days. The fact the restaurant is so good is a bonus because there are very few nearby alternatives.
Breakfast is also very goof with a good selection of both hot and cold items and all seemed pretty fresh.
The hotel also offers an indoor pool and spa, neither of which I used but other guests I spoke to were impressed.
In my view this is an excellent hotel especially if in the city on business, though for sightseers it may feel a little too remote from the centre. It is well run and the staff are a credit to the hotel.
