I booked a two-night stay at Made in Louise through the Eurostar package deal at a very affordable rate. I was a bit hesitant before booking as the hotel was quite a distance from Gare du Midi. But I was so glad I went ahead with the booking, convinced by the good reviews on Tripadvisor!
Pre-stay: I sent an email to confirm my reservation and I received a warm and friendly reply promptly.
During stay: With the help of google map, I managed to walk to the hotel from Gare du Midi, took me about 15 minutes, so it was not as bad as I thought, it is actually not very far in my opinion. The reception staff are always very friendly and they always answer my questions with a smile. The single room I stayed in (room 51) was spotlessly clean and spacious. I love how the big window lets in lots of sunlight to make the room bright and cheery. My room faces the court yard and I can hardly hear any traffic, every morning when I wake up from a good sleep, I can hear birds chirping outside, I really enjoyed the tranquility. The bed and pillows were crisp clean and smell nice. The shower area is enclosed within a glass door, so the sink and WC area are kept dry all the time. The toilet is well equipped with soap, cotton buds, cotton pads and shower cap. The towels are very clean and absorbent and are changed everyday. The breakfast room is very spacious and brightly lit. The crockery and food are placed neatly in an organised manner and there is an adequate variety of food like eggs, bread, waffles, cereal and cakes. The staff in the breakfast room are always checking to see if things are alright. In general, I feel that every staff at Made in Louise take great pride in their jobs! Well done!
Post-stay: The reception gladly kept my bag while I continue sightseeing before taking my train back to London. I highly recommend this hotel be it for holiday or business. During my stay, I saw families, couples, friends and businessmen, so there is a good mix of people staying at the hotel, which means it is a hotel that suits everyone! I will stay here again if I visit Brussels.
