“Feels like time has stopped in this hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Sometimes when you walk into a hotel lobby, you feel like you stepped back in time. This is one of those hotels.

Our room and bathroom were ok. Some wear and tear was visible. Staff was friendly. But that was about it. Hotel is average and in quiet location,

I was travelling with 2 friends and we shared a room - double bed (booked twin) and an extra bed (sofa.bed). Our room was really spacious. And it was easy to fold the extra bed into the sofa for the daytime.

Our room was toward the street, and had huge windows. You could feel the draught in the room. Warm socks or wool socks could be recommended.

Lift was tiny! Two persons with luggage is all that can fit in. Make sure you wait until the lift stops moving prior opening the lift door.

This hotel is NOT worth FOUR STARS. If you can get a cheap offer and are not looking for anything above average, this might be the hotel for you. If you want something nicer to stay for longer than one night, stay away from Izan Avenue Louise.

Rooms are nicely DECORATED, but OLD: furniture is worn out, NOT very PRACTICAL. Beds are TERRIBLE: very poor quality MATTRESS and PILLOWS! NOT very CLEAN: carpet floors were relatively dirty, water damage and fungus on walls of shower in bathroom.

Staff was very friendly during check-in and check-out.

I have delayed reviewing the hotel, since I was in direct correspondence with the new owners.
The information on the weight that this lift able to carry is legally correct EXCEPT that it is so tiny that a full complement can overload. In a larger elevator which is rarely full this would not happen. We pressed the button and the lift went down half a floor more . Now elevators can be dangerous and I am writing on this one because this week a lady was killed when the elevator dragged her up without the doors closing properly. So it is relevant and since I dont see the hotel doing anything except spout that its legal watch out.
Breakfast is expensive although most top rate hotels charge the same (this is not a top rate)
its good for the price of the room and well located.
All the other comments fill in the picture and this is just warning of the hidden danger.
We stayed in October 2011 for five nights.

Room Tip: try saying personal friends recommend 401.

I stayed at this hotel fortunately only for one night.. First I saw a smoker room where the paint came off the wall and the smoke-smell was so strong that I requested a change in room. I stupidly didn't take a careful look at the second room and only noticed when I came back at midnight what i had gotten myself into. There was severe mold in several places in the bathroom, the floor of the room was covered with tons of stains and the smell in the room which reminded me very much of urine was so strong it woke me up after I had closed the windows. So, I slept at 29 degrees fahrenheit with open window in a room whose floor i didnt even want to touch - not even speaking about the bathroom. short: go somewhere else. wouldn't it have been midnight, I would certainly have changed this hotel.

stayed here for one night. The room was nice, especially very nice bathroom and also quiet. The breakfast is overpriced and so is the internet. Internet in the lobby is extremely slow.
Overall good but could use some improvements. With a lot of luggage is a long walk to the lift.

Just got back from 2 nights here at a cost of only £120 (no breakfast). Compared to other prices around Brussels this seems to be a bargain. Friendly quick check in and directed to lift and room was easy to find. Our room was 401, non smoking and was very clean although there were some general wear and tear signs. Bath very small but shower was more than acceptable. Bathroom itself a little cramped but considering the space was OK. Beds very comfy. Even though we were only there 2 nights we still had maid service. On leaving (check out 12.00) we could leave our cases in reception, a label was attached to each case which had a number on it and we were given a tear off piece for security purposes. Returnwed later at around 6 and colected our cases after reception checked our tickets, once again very friendly. Would return again to this hotel if in Brussels.
One thing to watch, the lift does not have an inner door,so, as the lift goes up the bare wall passes by where the door was. If you did not realise this and lent back where you though the door was you will be in for a surprise!!

Room Tip: Front and rear facing rooms have no view to speak of and road was very quiet.
