“Excellent find - thanks Tripadviser travellers”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Booked this hotel on the strength of the Tripadviser recommendation - and indeed other hotel booking sites also nadir was well worth it.
Only stayed one night but the friendliness of the staff suggested we were "old friends" visiting once again.
The hotel decor is great , modern and "sharp" - really liked it.
Clean and spacious rooms (superior double ) with a very comfy bed.
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left , just about everything was perfect (except the weather !) . Even chatting with the cleaning staff was a pleasure.
If we're ever in Brussels again we'll certainly stay here.

Room Tip: Have only stayed in a superior room so no other recommendations but the "loft" room we had...

The good: Very friendly staff, great breakfast buffet included in price, matter of fact rooms, cute decor everywhere else, if this is your thing, very good value.
The not so good: Room had been recently painted and smelled strongly, a little far from the city center

We stayed at "Made in Louise" for two nights in December and found it absolutely delightful. The room was immaculate and tastefully decorated, the bathroom was lovely, the reception area is modern and cosy - shabby chic style at it's very best. Very importantly, the bed was comfy and I slept like a log. The staff was warm and professional, location excellent.... what more can I say? We had a very early departure flight and the staff arranged a lovely breakfast for us at 4:30 am with fresh, warm croissants, home made bread and coffee. It's so rare and such a pleasure to get such service. I have already booked my next stay in April and, as I have to travel to Brussels every few months, will be very happy to make this my new home away from home :-)

A charming newly refurbished hotel in a very nice location. We had a wonderful room on the top floor. Breakfast was fine. Staff was extraordinary nice and attentive! Ixelles is definitely one of the best locations to stay in Brussels.
Only downside of the hotel is that there is no air conditioning in the room. While during the winter it is fine, I think it will be a problem during summer.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights back in March.

This hotel is everything a Boutique Hotel should be.

The decor is very chic and modern in which appeared to be an old but characteristic building.

The staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was ever too much. We asked if we could change rooms when we arrived as the people next to us we're very noisy and this was not a problem. In fact we were moved to a bigger room at no extra charge.

On our first night they arranged a nice meal for us. The owners mum (I think!?) even went to the local deli to pick up ingredients.

My wife has an intolerance to gluten and diary and they catered well for this as they had soya milk and gluten free bread for breakfast.

We even got a takeaway ordered one night as not many restaurants appeared to be open. Our takeaway was taken up to our room with dinners plates etc and complementary bottle of water.

There was a lovely little bar with a fire. Nice choice of local beers and nice wines.

There was complementary tea at reception each time we came back from our travels which was a nice touch.

I would highly recommend staying here if you visit Brussels for pleasure and for business. If we return to Brussels we will definitely stay here again.

Apologies for leaving it so late to put my review on!!

My fiance and I stayed here for two nights. The cuteness of Made In Louise and the unexpected charms of Brussels made us wished we have scheduled for more time here. The location is great, just off a shiny, polished shopping street in a great district, while a little further away is a more bohemian district. The reception personnel, in fact all staff were extra friendly, cheerful and keen to help. The entire place was welcoming, as with all things, it's the little things that count. Complimentary tea service, a great selection of beer at very decent prices at the homey bar and the cute compact living room. Breakfast every morning was a delight!

Our room was compact, but very cute and scrupulously clean. We decided, since we have fallen hard for Belgium, Made in Louise will definitely be our default Brussels hotel the next time!

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights in November, The hotel is really beautiful. Very homely but at the same time very modern. The rooms are on the small side but nicely decorated and lovely bathrooms with powerful shower.

The staff were very friendly and happy to help and give advice. The hotel is also a 5 minute walk if that to the nearest tram stop so very easy to get around.

Cant really fault this place at all. Brilliant.
