Made in Louise, Brussels, Belgium
With its pool table, help-yourself snacks and laidback atmosphere, this handsome building in a residential street in the fashionable Ixelles district feels more like the large home of a family friend than a hotel. And a friend with a good eye for design. Named after the nearby Avenue Louise, with its smart shops, the family-owned guesthouse has a cool style of soothing colours, bold wallpapers and retro furnishings. There's plenty of space to lounge around, including a courtyard, while breakfast in the conservatory is a splendid affair. Ixelles has plenty of neighbourhood restaurants and interesting food markets and there are nearby buses if you don't fancy the 30-minute walk into the centre.
At weekends, we love browsing the food stalls of the market in Place Flagey, followed by a stroll around the 'etangs d'Ixelles' (large ponds).
The renowned Horta Museum, housing the work of Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, is a 10-minute stroll from the hotel.
By plane: there are direct flights from London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and Birmingham. The hotel is a 25-minute drive from the airport.
By train: the Eurostar goes direct from London St Pancras to Brussels (2 hours). The terminal is a 10-minute drive from the hotel.
Style & Character
Ideal for people who want to feel part of a Brussels neighbourhood, rather than be in the bright and busy centre, and who don't mind walking. The easy atmosphere and lack of formality is very beguiling; you can pad around in stockinged feet without turning heads.
Service & Facilities
Coming back from a day's sight-seeing, it is a joy to flop in one of the leather chairs having helped yourself to a hot drink and sweet pastry.
- Coffee house
- Free Wi-Fi
Rooms on the higher floors have the best views; some are on two levels. The neatness of the design - wall-hung angle-poise lamps, for example, to save space - makes the rooms very calming and restful.
