I often stay for work and it is always a pleasure to return. The staff is very friendly and the hotel spotless, comfortable, small and personal. Great location near place de Chatelain and Place Stephanie. Also great value for money

Thanks to Trip Advisor we booked the Made in Louise. It deserves it's #1 rating. From service to decor it is absolutely the best place we stayed during our 30 day tour. The entire hotel is beautifully decorated. Rooms are clean, neat, functional. The included breakfast was fantastic. Everything there was of superior quality without being pretentious. I especially enjoyed the serve yourself draft beer and wine tap - not free, but appropriately priced. Highly recommend.

This hotel in the Ixelles section of Brussels was such a great find! It is located on a small street near the very high-end shopping district, and very convenient to all parts of the city by public transit or walking. We stayed for two nights and loved everything about our stay. The hotel was renovated a couple of years ago and the decor is beautiful. We stayed in a room on the 6th floor (room 64), which felt like our own little atelier. The room - in the "charming" category - was large, as was the bathroom, the beds were very comfortable, and it was extremely quiet. I'm not sure whether this room has air conditioning (although some do), because when we arrived a new Dyson fan was being delivered to our room for our use. It was perfect, and we didn't feel we needed air conditioning, but I imagine in July it must get rather warm. The staff at the hotel were all delightful and accommodating. On our day of departure we needed to leave early, before the official start of breakfast, in order to catch our plane. They insisted we eat first, the food had been set-up, and we truly appreciated the hospitality. By the way, the breakfast is incredible! There are a variety of baked goods, fruit salad, yummy scrambled eggs and baked tomatoes, cereals, and a delicious homemade cheese spread that we couldn't stop eating! We were so pleased to end our vacation at such a gem of a hotel.

Thanks a lot for your feedback! It makes our day!
The breakfast is very important for our guests, that's why we make sure to select the best products on the market and prepare fresh fruit salad every day.
I will share your review with the team, again a big thanks from the whole MIL team.

Very much enjoyed our stay here. Friendly and helpful staff. Newly remodeled and fresh paint
The breakfast area in the back was open to the beautiful backyard gardens. Simply elegant !decor was lovely and a touch of French with, grey, black and white. Very nice interior design

Room Tip: Choose a room near the back for a view of the courtyard and a quiet, peaceful sleep

This is a lovely hotel, I wanted to stay longer! Took lots of pictures of the decor. The service was amazing, the Italian dinner they ordered for me was great. My office wanted to send a gift box and the hotel staff was really helpful. They helped choose a gift and left it for me in my room. The room was very welcoming and relaxing; it was nice to stay in and read for the evening. Books and magazines are available for guests in the lounge. The bathroom was nice with little goodies, a hairdryer and a large shower (Nuxe shower gel). I walked to the Grand Place from the hotel, wasn't too far even in the rain. I took the tram (direction Elizabeth) from Gare Midi and walked to the hotel the day I arrived but took a taxi back (9.5 euros). Breakfast was really good, lots of choices. Lovely breakfast room. They have a pool table in one of the front rooms, a fireplace in their lounge and snacks available. Their downstairs restroom has individual hand towels, thought that was a great touch! The owners really put a lot of thought into their place and the service they provide. Loved Bingo! If you are visiting Brussels, this is the place to stay! Wish they had a hotel in Paris or here in California!

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 21, right at the top of the first set of stairs so easy access. Really quiet room...

The rooms are quite small but fine for a short stay. They come fully equipped and have a comfortable bed. The quiet location almost guarantees a good night's sleep. Not expensive by comparison with other places the hotel offers an excellent level of service and the included breakfast is very good quality, freshly squeezed juice is always a good sign. The location was perfect just a short metro and tram ride from Gare du Midi, in a good area with plenty of restaurants and shops.
