The Hipark Residences building is new with modern, grey and metal architecture, where only the door frame of the entrance stands out with its salmon colour. This six-storey façade with numerous balconies is in very good condition and from the outside gives the impression of a recent and modern residential building.
As soon as you walk through the entrance, you will see that this impression is not wrong, and what a relief! In fact, the relatively spacious lobby is decorated in a very contemporary style, in keeping with the times. What strikes you first as you enter the hotel is the brightness of the reception area, created by the large bay windows that almost fully cover the two wall sections that open out onto the outside. The whiteness of the ceiling, the curtains, some of the armchairs, and the cream floor tiles also contributes to the impression of brightness in the lobby.
As far as the decor is concerned, the style is obviously contemporary, even if it looks like a modernised version of a 70s comeback. The colour code is a blend of orange on the armchairs and the carpet tiles and chocolate brown on the wood floor in the relaxation area, on the pillars, doors, and some parts of the wooden walls.
The overall effect is a clever blend that contrasts the brightness of the white with the cosy atmosphere of the warm tints. In this particularly welcoming ambience you will find a very comfortable relaxation area with large sofas and deep armchairs where guests can settle down to read, relax, work or chat. It is just opposite the entrance and the reception desk with an orange carpet leading towards it.
The reception also has an understated and refined decor with its golden padded wall which highlights the dark brown wood and the white of the desk. The bay windows that open to the outside do not directly overlook the street but rather a strip of lawn with a few outdoor games for children and a sandbox.
Behind the reception, after the area with the two lifts, is a small, long narrow room, the business corner, with two computers and Internet access available to guests. Here also the decor is contemporary and urban, with its orange walls and wall sections covered with a black and white photo of the city creating a pleasant ambience.
In one corner are two drinks and confectionery vending machines. Next is the breakfast room with white walls that enhance its brightness, even though there is no natural light. With its golden wallpapered walls with Asian-style flower patterns, its modern colourful furniture and its contemporary lamps, this small room, which can seat around forty people, is appealing on the whole.
The Hipark Residences also has a sauna, a good gym with showers and lockers and a dozen of the latest generation sport equipment, and a very well maintained massage room.
For business guests, the Hipark Residences has two meeting rooms with a total surface area of 85m². These two meeting rooms are separated by a removable wall and are equipped with a screen, a flipchart, a projector and Wi-Fi Internet access.
