“Just Excellent”
Reviewed 17 November 2009

Just Exellent! It's the first time we go to Sofitel since rebranded Sofitel Luxury Hotels and we were really estonished. This is just the best hotel we tried in Brussels: Simple, Design trendy, Staff smily and a Touch of excellence in the service. I love this hotel and I am not alone as it is, as I have understood, the favorite meeting place for Stars in Belgium. I will also recommend this hotel for doing Shopping (you have Hermes and Shoppard just next to).

I stayed here for four nights in October. The staff are very good and the concierge is very helpful and informative. Located in the smartest shopping district of Brussels ( Chanel etc), it is a 15 to 20 minute walk to the Grande Place but you pass many sights on the way - from the Grand Sablon, Musee des Beaux Arts, Magrittte Museum etc. The hotel bar is a favourite with locals so that adds an upbeat feel. The beds are amazing and everyone in our party commented on their comfort. The only downside is the breakfast is a flat 30 euros if it isn't included in your room rate. A great deal if you are a bodybuilder, but they really should have a lower priced menu for a continental breakfast option rather than just the buffet.

We just came back from our weekend trip to Brussels and had a very nice time at Sofitel La Louise. Very close frm the Thalys station. About 5 minutes away by a taxi. We arrived around 12 pm, but they let us use our rooms as they were available. It's a very trendy decoration in the rooms and reception and...everywhere! But I found it fun. It's not so often we stay in this type of hotels, so we just enjoyed the disco-like elevator!

The rooms were a bit small, but the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were very nice. The things in the fridge were expensive, but we didn't have to take out anything because in the evening, when the maids came and prepare the bed, they gave us 2 bottles of water per room and extra coffee cartridges.

The breakfast was quite good. We had our breakfast included in the package, so we didn't care about the price. Besides you can eat a lot! They offered us not only the eggs, but the waffles and crèpes as well. We were not hungry until very late in the afternoon after the breakfast...

The dinner was interesting. The food was ok. Nice presentaion though. I just like the table we had for the dinner. It was huge! Very big space for just 4 of us.

The location was perfect for us because we wanted to shop some clothes. There were lots of nice boutiques around the hotel. The museum district was not that far from the hotel either. We went to the new Magritte Museum, but since we didn't know that it was a very popular place to visit, we had to buy a ticket for 4 o'clock entrance when we were already in the museum at 11. The people who arrived after us couldn't get in to the exhibition that day any more. We were lucky to get the last spot although we had to come back later. So I would advise people to reserve the place if you want to get in for sure.

The area we liked most was the Grand Sablon ( I think that's the name of the place). There was an antique market on Sunday until 3. There I found a lot of nice objets and paintings! The prices were much more reasonable than in Paris.

Our kids favrite was the Leonidas' chocolate covered strawberry ( with or without bananas) brochettes. You can choose from dark, milk and white chocolate. It was delicious! The place we went was just in between the Grand Place and arcade.

We loved our time at this hotel during our trip to Brussels. The front desk was extremely courteous and helpful, and the rooms were very clean and decorated in a simple and tasteful manner. It wasn't right next to all the cultural attractions, but was a pleasant ~20 minute walk away. The surrounding area was nice with many stores and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again!

The hotel is amazing. It is located in the heart of the designers shoping area. The only things that upset me a little is the cost for the breakfast. There is a singe charge of 30 euros per person. I cannot eat that much in the morning.....

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights after reading the tripadvisor reviews and got a really good price, but it couldn't meat our expectations. It is a liitle far from the center, and althought there is a metro station really close to it, you have at least 20 minutes walk if you prefer walking.
The elevator got broken one day for something like 3 hours, and the hole staff reaction to this was quite indifferent. We had a breakfast included, and althought they write the breakfast strarts 6:30, when we got there at 7:00, almost nothing was ready. The guy who worked there asked us of our room number, and disappeared in the kitchen.
