Coming Up 2021: Business (as usual?) @ BareFood Giulia

The global crisis caused by COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the world we once knew, especially in terms of health, work and social relationships. These consequences were, in addition to the ruthlessly hard-hit health sector, very strongly felt in the Horeca (Hotels, Restaurants and Cafes/Bars) sector. Bookings were canceled en masse, travel was often no longer allowed or discouraged and take-away became a weekly ritual for many households. You probably imagined the year 2020 and unfortunately also the first quarters of 2021 very differently.

Of course we as a team at BareFoodGiulia also had to undergo a lot of changes. It wasn't always easy, but as Sir Winston Churchill once said ... "never let a good (Good? Really?) crisis go to waste". Every Hospitality business was encouraged to think creatively, out-of-the-box as they sometimes say. As of today, we are convinced that, despite everything, we have succeeded in this and can therefore be very proud of what we have already achieved, but also of what is yet to come. And all this while respecting the national and international health rules and measures, off course.

Even before the corona crisis hit the small country of Belgium, we noticed a very pleasant trend in our bookings and visits, namely the increased growth of the well-appreciated business traveler. Managers of large and medium-sized companies, founders of startups and creative self-employed people, business people from Belgium and far beyond, all found their way to BareFoodGiulia. BareFoodGiulia loves business and business loves BareFoodGiulia.

But how did that happen? A boutique hotel as unique as that of BareFoodGiulia is not usually associated with business, but rather with relaxation, fun and enjoyment in style.

The concept of BareFoodGiulia has always been inspired by that special feeling of "being at home". And that also applies to our business customers. After all, we want to offer a home for everyone who is "far away" from their actual home. Whether you are here with us for leisure or for business then appears to be of secondary importance. After all, you are "at home" here with us. Who wouldn't want to come home and relax after a long day of tough negotiations that fortunately led to the conclusion of a successful new business deal?

In short, hard work and great enjoyment can be combined and BareFoodGiulia is living proof of this. Try it out for yourself and be inspired by the creative and relaxing environment of BareFoodGiulia. 

Hope to see you soon @BareFoodGiulia

P.S.1 : Given the significant impact of last year's events of our work lives, we also want to put more emphasis on Work From Home @ BareFoodGiulia. Do you want to take a break or experience a brief change of scene, but you currently can't afford no or insufficient leave? Enjoy a relaxing working environment in one of our seven rooms where you can telework from check-in to check-out in a different, but inspiring environment (free wifi; coffee, tea and water are offered in the room or treat you to a delicious drink from the Giulia drinks menu).

P.S.2 : Discover our Congratulations Surprise Bag to celebrate your special occasions during your stay @BFG.

Coming Up 2021: Business (as usual?) @ BareFood Giulia


The Spring of 2020 has passed in a very surreal way and a very beautiful and warm Summer has made us all very happy and we have even been able to enjoy a certain ''freedom'' again. Unfortunately, this euphoria completely turned around in the Autumn of last year and since Winter 2020 and even Spring 2021 (yes 2021!!!) we are again fully in the second and perhaps even third wave of the pandemic.

But the end of the dark tunnel is in sight and hope is emerging. We are finally getting a grip on the virus and the vaccination calendar has now started at full speed. On to a "freer" 2021 that will be inspiring and "injecting".

BareFoodGiulia is therefore fully preparing for this new freedom that is sure to come.

We see the future very positively and this without an omnipresent coronavirus and pandemic. Fall and winter 2021 will certainly be another step in the right direction. Let old good habits (meeting and hugging each other live) come back as soon as possible and let us embrace new and healthier lifestyles.

Soon we will be happy to present our new autumn plans via our website, Facebook and Instagram.

You have already been able to get acquainted with the new and hip concept of BareFood (Breakfast & Aperitivo) with new opening hours and a new drinks menu. New events? ... they are also coming as of this fall.

For our hotel guests we already have this tiny novelty:

From the first of September, we want to send our positive vibes to our hotel guests via a nice "feel@home" discount of 10% on their first drink in our beautiful Aperitivo bar BareFood or, if unfortunately the bar is closed, via an order on the Giulia drinks menu that you can find online or in the beautiful gold frame in the hotel rooms.

In the meantime, this extra room service with the offer of the Giulia drinks menu remains available for our nice hotel guests. Our GIULIA hotel guests can now enjoy a delicious bubble, an elegant wine or a nice fresh local beer in the unique atmosphere of their room.

Check out our GIULIA drinks menu (see Giulia Drinks Menu) and order before your check-in via mail to or during your stay at the hotel desk or via a message to +32 (0) 472 12 45 01. The BareFoodGiulia team is happy to prepare the chilled drink with accompanying glasses and a nibble so that you can fully enjoy your relaxing stay immediately after arrival and this in the unique setting of one of the seven rooms you have personally and carefully selected. Cheers!!!

Feel welcome and hope to see you all in our Aperitivo bar BareFood.

And last but not least ...

Concerned about your health and safety? Don't worry, we are too and we have taken the necessary measures.

Our MOTTO during this period ...

'safe and healthy, yet still cozy and unique'.

Hope to see you soon @BFG and bring your bubble (friends & family) with you!

On the agenda

Pending the relaxation of current COVID-19 (Corona) restrictions, we have not yet planned any 'events'. We will keep you informed of any changes. 


Where our passion lies

Barefood Giulia is the result of passion, taste and courage. We not only want our guests to enjoy and relax while enjoying a delicious and refreshing selection of drinks and snacks, we also want to inspire them. This idea can be found in our interior, characterized by a refined and luxurious but also distinct touch. We like to work with local products and often rely on nearby suppliers. Nonetheless, our inspiration also extends far beyond, allowing you to get to know the very best that Hasselt, Limburg and the world have to offer.


Simply the place to ...
