“Perfect Oasis on the Outskirts of Central Brussels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Made in Louise is quite simply a perfectly executed city boutique hotel. The building, located in the upmarket Ixelles area of Brussels has been very tastefully restored about a year ago and is a very pleasant place to spend time - there is a beautiful free pool table available in the public area and plenty of comfy seats to lounge around in. This family run business also pays real attention to service which at all times was superb.

Everyone we met from reception through to the breakfast service was cheery and helpful. All staff speak excellent English too which is a bonus. I had a double room for single occupation which came in at €75/night including a very good breakfast. Excellent value. The rooms are the expected size for a city centre hotel and have plenty of room for one guest. There are larger doubles available if you're travelling as a couple.

Francois is a friendly evening receptionist who is keen to introduce you to his favourite beers - just beware his 9.5% recommendations!

There is a limited evening meal service provided by the local Italian restaurant, but also plenty of snacks available 24/7. However you will not be lost for good dining options nearby (unless it's a Sunday when many are closed). I highly recommend Le Chou de Bruxelles just around the corner for traditional Belgian cuisine.

Walking to the centre of town takes around 30 mins, but there are many nice neighbourhoods and sights en route including the chocolate centre of Bruxelles with all the finest chocolatiers present - the triangle beneath the shadow of the Eglise Notre Dame du Sablon.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here, and the walk to town also gives you distance from the tourist masses which dominate the main square and surrounding areas in the centre of Brussels.

Room Tip: Some travelers have suggested a room away from the main street is quieter, but when I stayed my room...

Made in Louise is the perfect boutique-hotel. Well located, it offers a warm and familial environment with many touch of class and European taste. Everything is doing with a special touch. The staff has particularly to be complimented for its youthful "entrain" and kindness. All fluently speak English, French and a third language and their efforts for accommodating any request seems to come genuinely from a concern for the visitor's need. They often go far beyond the request and show a keen interest in the person they have in front of them. A great experience.

Room Tip: Quiet neighbourhood close to the center of the "Goulot de l'Avenue Louise"

Lovely small hotel near the centre of Brussels, located in a very nice part of the city. There are a number of great restaurants nearby (check out Le Chou de Bruxelles just around the corner) and it's a nice walk of about thirty minutes to the Grand Place or a few stops on the metro. Rooms were simple but modern and clean and contained everything you could need including free wifi.

But what set this hotel apart for me was the warm and friendly service we received whilst there. A fantastic team of staff on reception (who all spoke English thankfully!) really made you feel at home. It's also worth noting that the breakfast was fantastic: a wide selection of quality food (cereals, bread, eggs, cheese, ham and delicious home made treats) really set you up for a day of sightseeing.

There is also a pool room which is free for guests to use and a small bar where the staff will recommend a selection of Belgian beers and other snacks and drinks.

Overall then a fantastic family owned hotel with great service. I would return in an instant and would thoroughly recommend it!

Very nice small trendy hotel in a tradicional old building.
Service was great, THE best breakfast place!
Room 25 very spacious to accommodate an extra bed for our daughter (very different from first option online). Relaxing time with family.

Great hotel, we love it! My daughter stayed at Made by Louise last month and it was the best hotel that we stayed at during our 2 week visit in Europe. The owners and staff are all very professional, kind and extremely helpful! The hotel guest rooms and common areas to include the breakfast room, pool room, reception area and coffee shop/ snack room are all accommodating, modern, comfortable and welcoming. The daily breakfast was outstanding! The room was open and charming with a large bay window opening to the garden below .The breakfast menu included fresh scrambled eggs with scallions, bacon, steamed/sautéed cherry tomatoes, soft boiled eggs, assorted cereals, fresh fruit salad, fresh whole fruit, cheese gand assorted breads/pastries, coffee, tea, juice, and more it was all delicious! The hotel is very close to restaurants, the bus and subway systems. Made in Louise welcomed us and made us feel at home, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Where to begin? Our stay at Made in Louise was outstanding from start to finish. From the warm and accommodating staff, the beautiful decoration, delicious breakfast and well-appointed rooms we were so impressed with this new hotel. It has the feel of a family-run business which only adds to its charm and its central location tops it off as being our new favourite place. Don't miss the opportunity to make your next stay in Brussels a memorable one at Made in Louise!

I booked my parents for a night into this hotel recently -- they absolutely loved it. Cosy, well-designed and clean rooms, good location, and most of all fantastic service. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, attentive to every request. Highly recommended!
