“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a nice stay in this hotel, but I expected this as it's not on the cheap side. The rooms were very cosy, good bed, nice bathroom, clean. The room may have been on the small side, but it is the centre of Brussel, so it's pretty normal. Breakfast was lovely, lots of choice and the moment the buffet ran out of something, they brought extra. We were able to find a parking spot, but we were very lucky. Otherwhise, you can ask the hotel, they have a few, but you have to pay a lot of money. There's just one thing that bothered me, and that's that non of the staff at the reception spoke a word of Dutch. In a hotel in Brussels, this surprised me.

Staff was very nice, breakfast was outstanding (and a real value in an expensive city), and room was clean and comfortable. My only suggestion: put some tables and chairs in that lovely courtyard so we can enjoy some beers outside next time. :)

Room Tip: We were warned that a street-facing room might be noisy, but we honestly had no problems with noise...

Thank you very much for your nice review.
We will put very soon some chairs and tables in the courtyard. We are just finishing 9 extra bedrooms and then we will re-design the courtyard to welcome our guests for an apero or for a nice breakfast outside.
Hope to see you soon at MIL again.

What a find in the middle of Brussels. You can tell that everyone working in the hotel has pride in their work. On-site owners maintain very high standards for service and friendliness. The location is perfect for visiting all the sights in Brussels, as well as the surrounding towns. The midi station is a short metro trip away. You can easily walk to most of the major attractions. There are several good restaurants nearby. The breakfast is wonderful. The rooms are well decorated and quiet. I stayed in small lower room and it was fine. I later stayed in a top floor room that was much larger and had a nice view. The lobby has a nice feel and a well stocked bar. I would return without reservation.

Room Tip: Coming by train from the airport I would take a taxi from the midi station to the hotel. Worth 10 e...

Thanks a lot for your feedback. it is always very motivating when our guests take time to write a review, we can then share those words with the team to show them the excellent work they do on a daily basis.
Our concept is based on the service, and the team ensures that during the whole stay you have nothing to worry except the unpreductable Belgium weather forecast :-)
Again THANK YOU and we hope to see you soon in Brussels.

We stayed at Made in Louise from 2/6/14 to 4/6/14 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the moment I walked through the door I was impressed - the decor, the comfort, the little touches! The room was lovely and the bed so comfortable - I will certainly return again and have already recommended it to others. The breakfast was fantastic - freshly prepared and plenty of it! The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Some very nice restaurants in the immediate area and great shops on Avenue Louise. A bit of a walk to the Grand Place (if you're averse to walking!) but tram at the end of the street and Louise Metro about 10 minutes walk away.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room at the rear - we were at the front and heard the refuse lorries in the morning...

We stayed at Made in Louise May 10-12 and loved every minute of it. From the front desk, to the fantastic breakfast and the room, there was nothing about MiL we did not love. The location is in the Upper Town away from, but an easy walk to, the Grand Place. There are lots of neat shops and restaurants within walking distance. Made in Louise is a great little place--we would definitely stay there again if we were in Brussels.

Room Tip: Our room was on the courtyard side, but it's in a quiet neighborhood so I think any room would b...

Made in Louise is compact and clean, just 3 metro stops away from Brussels Midi station (one of the popular train stations). The walk to reach the hotel is nice and long, so be prepared to stretch your legs if you're coming off a long haul flight like we were. We didn't mind walking from the metro station to the hotel any time of the day or night, as the weather was pleasant and the area safe.

One of the fun activities I had to indulge in as soon as we checked in the afternoon, was squat harmless bugs that had flown in through the open french windows. Don't worry, they were not the scary creepy crawlies that make you run in terror. Definitely, the little guys were enjoying the beautiful Brussels weather and comfort of Made in Louise :) I kept the windows closed for both days we stayed and that kept the little guys out. You might like to request the staff to keep the windows closed if you're arriving in spring/summer.

Our bedroom was overall clean and tidy. Bathroom was slightly bigger than my expectation of the European hotel with all the basic amenities. Breakfast was a selection of breads, fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs, etc. Coffee was freshly brewed.

We found the location to be central enough to consider staying again. One of the nice things about Made in Louise is that there is always a human being at the front desk no matter the time of day. Comforting when you're in a country for the first time :)

As soon as I walked into Made in Louise, I felt welcomed. Between the earthy decor, the carefully placed whimsical decorations and tchotchke among many other things, this hotel was a fantastic choice, it felt like home away from home. Decorated in muted tones, the hotel gives a peaceful aura that is inviting and calming. Located in the famed Louise area, on a residential block, Made is Louise is tucked away and if it weren't for the awning, you'd think it was one of the homes. This hotel is an easy walk from the high end and moderate shopping area and restaurants. It's near a bus line, so getting around wasn't an issue at all. When I booked, the hotel offered a free breakfast and that was a tasty treat and not to be missed!! The dining area alone was simply decorated, the same color way was used throughout the hotel and the dinnerware matched the wall color.....how's that for planning? The room had a skylight, big windows that let in a lot of sunlight and held a very appetizing spread to satisfy most palates. The staff was very friendly, were great at giving directions and were willing to take necessary steps to assure a comfortable stay. There is an area in the hotel that could rival any snack shop!! There was water, chips, candies, cookies, wine, refrigerated drinks available for a tasty snack. My room, #44 was tastefully and simply decorated and had more than enough room making it quite comfortable. There was a closet, a desk and a phone in the room. The bathroom was very clean with full sized honey smelling toiletries for use. The hotel is a quick cab ride away from the train station. It is a 10 minute tram ride or 15-20 minute walk which I decided to do with my suitcase in tow which I wouldn't advise at all. It is doable, but why? This hotel was pleasant and gave me warm fuzzies. It is sweet and pure and I highly recommend it to all. (Just a side note, the hotel is a good distance from the sights that most would want to see. I chose to walk all over the city and took the city tram, the city bus and the hop on/hop off bus just for something to do. Walking around the area of the hotel and then on to the sights allowed me to take in more of the city at my own pace.)
You will thank me for booking at this hotel. It is indeed a winner!!
Well done Made in Louise, well done!!

Room Tip: Please note that to access the elevator, there are stairs to climb. I don't think I missed a lob...
