Living Tomorrow – IHG Voco™ hotel

Updated on 2024-07-04

The voco Brussels City North hotel, which opened in September 2023 and is operated by IHG Hotels & Resorts, features 92 rooms. This modern hotel includes amenities such as a restaurant and a conference center. It is strategically located next to the Living Tomorrow Innovation Center. One of the sustainable features of the hotel is the Hydraloop system, which collects and treats shower water from 58 rooms. This treated water is then reused for purposes such as toilet flushing and gardening. This initiative helps in conserving water resources and promoting eco-friendly practices within the hotel’s operations.
