Anyone that cruises through the lobby of Hotel Des Indes, will be transported to another era.
The monumental entryway, which was the location where the horse-drawn carriages with visitors entered the building, exudes a rich history.
The opulent design of the Lounge / Restaurant, that is well suited to the prestige of this iconic hotel, is certainly chic while at the same time being quite warm and inviting. The marble columns, the chandelier and the sweeping stately staircases spin the tale of the 19th-century urban town palace of Baron Van Brienen, which would later transform into the luxurious Des Indes Hotel.
From the floor overlooking the foyer, nicknamed the Rotary, you have a wonderful view of the Lounge / Restaurant while leaning upon the balustrade. This is the location the baron used to greet his newly arrived guests.
