Dolce to open Belgian property

Dolce International is to run its first property in Belgium, following its appointment to manage the former IBM training centre in La Hulpe near Brussels by the property’s owner Banimmo Real Estate. The Dolce La Hulpe Brussels, which will open in January 2007 after an extensive refurbishment and expansion programme, is less than ten miles from Brussels Zaventem International Airport and is only 25 minutes by rail from Brussels Midi train station. On reopening, the property will offer 264 guest rooms, 4,400sqm of meeting space across 40 meeting rooms and four auditoriums for up to 484 delegates. The property’s meeting spaces will be equipped with high-speed wired and wireless internet access. In addition, the hotel will provide an à la carte restaurant, a main dining room for 320 people, two private dining rooms and banqueting facilities, a Dolce Spa with an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam bath, fitness centre and treatment rooms. Andy Dolce, company founder, chairman and CEO said: “This is an important milestone for Dolce International as it is our first property in the heart of the EU. Dolce La Hulpe is a prime destination and will be perfect for meeting the demands and needs of business and leisure travellers; not only from the local region, but France, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and North America.”
