The Hôtel Moustic, or Moustic Hotel in English, is a building in Brussels.


Built right next to the seedier Hotel of the Ungilded Cockroach, M. Papillon's Moustic Hotel was, in the late 1930's, a top-of-the-line luxury hotel. Spirou got his first job there as a bellhop, before going on to become a journalist and adventurer in the aftermath of World War II. The Moustic had a large staff, with brutish and arrogant Entresol as its chief of personnel.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Moustic Hotel first appeared, alongside Spirou, in the 1938 comic The Birth of Spirou.

Its name is a play on “Moustique”, the French word for 'mosquito'; as such, the hotel's emblem is a cartoony rendition of one such insect.
