Purism and elegance
This chic little design hotel is situated in the heart of Tongeren, Belgium’s oldest city, also famous for its huge Sunday antique and flea market. Part of the Different Hotels group, this 4-sta restablishment and its top-class brasserie, Tinto, are housed in a former 12 th-century convent. The Saint James’s guesthouse was originally established to accommodate pilgrims who stopped to rest on their way to far-off Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
In a similar way to back then, guests from all over the world are also given lodging and find peace and quiet here today. However, the surroundings today are more stylish and purist than the Spartan accommodation offered back in the Middle Ages. Each of the 52 rooms features its own individual, hip design. Guests are accustomed to having only the best and often finish off a long, tiring day of shopping and sightseeingin the hotel’s elegant wine cellar, where 150 wines from 20 different countries await them. It goes without saying that guests also expect the highest of standards from the indoor climate. In winter, the interior should be nice and warm but not stuffy, while in summer it should be pleasantly cool but not draughty. Ideally suited for such requirements is a climate concept based on City Multi units. Three VRF outdoor units are linked to two floor standing units and to the 52 ceiling units in the rooms. The system is centrally controlled using two GB - 50PRO remote controls. Guests are, of course, also free to adjust the comfort climate in their room at any time.
