Eburon is a hip design hotel in a nicely renovated convent. It’s situated in the middle of Tongeren, Belgium’s oldest city. The original decorated rooms have heigh ceilings which makes them very light and airy. The nice lobby and the walks to your room through the old (but renovated - including pink carpet) monastery corridors gives extra charm to this place. Breakfast is taken in the very open attic, which also feels very contemporary. Apart from visiting the famous museum, day trips to the neighboring fruit region are very enchanting, especially early spring, when all fruit trees are blossoming.
