“Made in Louise Was Made With Love And Felt Like Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

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...

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we booked two nights here in April and were not disappointed.

Although we had opted for one of the smaller rooms it was sufficient for our short stay, especially when one spends most of the day out and about sight-seeing. Bedding was comfortable, wi-fi worked well and breakfast - which was included in the room price - provided plenty of choice for both continental or fuller breakfast tastes.
All staff were friendly and helpful.

From Gare du Midi there is a subway train to Louise; one can then either take a tram to the bottom of the hotel's street or walk from the subway for approximately 10 mins to the hotel. We caught a taxi to the hotel on arrival for 12 euros but chose to walk to the underground train on departure – not too difficult despite dragging two large suitcases.

The hotel is well placed for all the main sights of Brussels and there are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity.

We enjoyed our stayed at Made in Louise and would definitely recommend this hotel.

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.
