“Premium Hotel Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Hotel located in Le Louise luxury shopping strip. Ten minutes (3 stops) on Metro from Brussels Midi Station. Twenty to thirty minutes walk to the Grand Place. Modern elegantly finished hotel throughout. We booked classic room with king bed which was well equipped and stylishly decorated. We booked several months in advance and got great room only rates. Breakfast very pricey. Staff courteous and very helpful. Would highly recommend.

This is a great hotel to stay at for a weekend as the rates charged drop substantially from the weekday business rates. I stayed for three nights with my wife and was very impressed with the quality of the fittings in the room and the service, considering we paid a lot less than we have paid recently in other cities. Location wise we found it OK as it is three stops on the metro from the Gare du midi where the Eurostar arrives, however it is about 1000 metres uphill from the true centre, which is means that whilst a pleasant walk to the centre, may be too much for some people on the way back.
We had a room on the 6th floor at the front, which meant we had a great view over the city, however the downside was there was a bit of noise from the street below through the night, which if you are a light sleeper may be a problem.
We did not eat or drink at the hotel as the prices were too high, as unlike the room rates they don't come down at the weekend. There are plenty of much cheaper options close by, and our favourite area was left out of the hotel, across avenue Louise, turn left and then about 100 yards to a traffic free side street where there is a wide range of restaurants without seating when the weather is good.

With an international language speaking staff, a restaurant with spectacular ambience, five star cuisine, and service to match, the patio is casual, and a great meeting place for a drink or snack, I personally found the Breakfast buffet to be the showplace of the morning, although on the expensive side, it's well worth a visit. The rooms are beyond comfort, and hold a 'true' 5 star rating; the business center is complete, and caters to the commerce traveler seeking IT and assistance. This hotel is as complete as a five star rated hotel gets, there is no compromise here, if your looking for a great location, and love to be pampered, I highly recommend you not overlook this newly renovated masterpiece on Avenue de la Toison d'Or, Ixelles, Brussels

Room Tip: if a view is your fancy, you want the street side, upper floors

I travel frequently to Brussels, i have stayed in various hotels, one of my favorite is Sofitel Le Louise.

It is centrally located, making it easier to get in time for meetings.
There are several excellent restaurants at walking distance. Make sure you demand concierge for information. Make sure you always reserve in advance.

Rooms are not very big,( normal for Europe), but they are beautifully decorated, nice warm colors, the usual Sofitel comfortable bed and sheets. Bathrooms are modern, provided with Hermes amenities. There are 2 hotels in Brussels where i feel that comfortable and this is one of them.

Try the bar cocktails, excellent.

They tend to change the staff often(but not the valet parking- very helpful. These guys have been there from ever..) , but overall the service is excellent.

Very good hotel. Recommended.
