“Excellent!!! ”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Only just got round to writing a review despite staying at Hotel Louise early December.

We had a fantastic stay at Hotel
Louise, we are struggling to find a fault!

Our room was on the top floor. It was spotless, spacious whilst being very cosy and stylishly decorated!! The bathroom occupied a huge bath and power shower! The breakfast was delicious, only a small selection but more than enough & would suit a wide range of tastes.
The hotel is in walking distance to most attractions- we walked 20minutes each day to the Christmas markets.

The hotel was stylish, modern, clean & the staff could not do enough to help and make you feel at home :)

Thank you for making our stay perfect.
Will hopefully be returning in the near future!

Made in Louise is a truly beautiful hotel with a warm and familiar feel to it and brilliant service to boot. We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the most comfortable and hospitable stay we've had anywhere in Europe to date.

We were greeted by a very nice woman on reception who checked us in, provided us with a map and then talked us through some basic directions and local tips.

The hotel itself is beautiful, boasting a very modern look and feel without compromising on that all-important 'homely' feel. The hotel sports a fantastic reception / cafe area with complimentary tea, coffee and cakes served in front of the fireplace. There's also a pool (billiards) room for a bit of fun between outings.

The rooms are elegant - again very modern, clean and comfy. You're not on holidays to watch TV, however there's a wide selection of English channels available (BBC1-4, ITV, CNN etc) which can be handy - we were staying during the Sochi Olympics, so this was great to check in on results!

A lovely buffet breakfast is served each morning in a beautiful little atrium - pancetta, eggs, tomatoes etc, cereals, yoghurts, waffles, cakes... Everything you might expect from a good, solid European buffet layout. The Wifi works perfectly throughout all areas of the hotel - no black spots or drop out problems, which we've found to be a constant hassle all through Europe for some reason.

Location-wise, Made in Louise is in a nice spot. The hotel is €8 in a cab from Brussels Midi and is a 20 minute walk or so from the Grand Place. There's a tram station up the road that will get you in quicker, but we never bothered as we enjoyed the walk. There are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance, as well as a supermarket at the end of the street.

I recommend waffles at Maison Dandoy Tea Room, mussels at Danish Tavern and the brilliant 3-hour free walking tour that starts out the front of the City Hall every day at 11am.

Happy Travels! We will be back!

Nice and clean hotel that goes with the individual homey feeling vibe
10 minutes walk from Louise metro station, 1 metro change to go to European Commission (15 minutes in total), in a quiet street with no passing-through traffic
Rather small room (No. 16) but very comfortable bed and bathroom with rainforest shower and huge bath tub, very quiet even though at mezzanine floor (next to breakfast room and lift)
Nicely decorated reception, breakfast room, bar and rooms
Liked the breakfast a lot, personal touch through juice of the month, apple pie, really cute tiny salt and pepper mills, fresh herbs on the tables.
Huge selection of Belgian beers at the reception, no dinner option/restaurant though

Very comfortable and accommodating small hotel near the Louise metro. Excellent buffet breakfast with a nice variety of foods from which to choose. My room was very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and my absolute lack of French was not a problem. Really enjoyed my two-night stay.

Location: 10mins walk from the Louise tube station
Area: nice and clean
Hotel: Smaller than usual but of a great quality, with kind of homey feeling
Staff: Helpful, friendly, not stingy with smile

Room no.16: Clean, tidy, extremely quiet during night (haven't had such a good sleep for days), WiFi working very well (everywhere!!), comfy bed and linen, spotless bathroom (looked brad-new)

Breakfast: delicious, decent choice of food (hot & cold), tasty coffee and pastries
Reception: Check-in and check-out in a few mins, received very good map of Brussels, was offered a few tips and directions without any probs

Garden: Closed (but not for too long, read in the guest's memo that it will be open soon)

Overall rating: 9/10 (and that's only because the cleaner decided to hoover outside my room at about 7:30am (stopped as soon as I opened the door, didn't even get a chance to say anything :))

PS: My room (no.16) was on the mezzanine floor (opposite the restaurant), but I didn't hear much noise in the morning. Everyone behaved politely, maybe thanks to the homey feeling (which you don't really get in massive 300-bedroom hotels) ... so I was simply amazed through and through!

The whole hotel looked like it must have been refurbished recently as it was in much better condition than most of 4* hotels. If I get a chance to go back to Brussels again, I will definitely look to returning to 'Made in Louise' again. Thanks a lot!

Situated in a great neighborhood, Made in Louis is the kind of place where you instantly feel at home. Decoration is simple, cosy and elegant. Personnel is very friendly and helpful (made restaurant booking). TheBar/lounge with fireplace and wide selection of beers, teas, juices; complementary herbal tea. Lots of good shopping in the area and a wide selection of fine restaurants. A quick taxi ride from the business and EU district. Spacious room; large walk-in shower and bath. There is an elevator in the building, but steps at the entrance and in between floors and elevator. Might be difficult in case of disabilities. Inquire if you think there might be a problem. They'll certainly do everything possible to help. I enjoyed my stay and will return next time I'm in Brussels.
