Fodor's Expert Review Made in Louise

Rue Veydt 40, Ixelles, Brussels Capital, 1050, Belgium Fodor's Choice

A charmingly renovated 18th-century building is the setting for this exquisite, family-run boutique hotel, found deep in the fashionable Louise neighborhood. The rooms are bright and tastefully simple, decorated in either single or two-tone colors. Try and bag a room overlooking the inner courtyard, replete with giant outdoor chess set. Elsewhere, a billiards room provides old-fashioned distraction, as does the café-bar, which serves snacks and a good range of beers. As befits its residential setting, the area is also whisper-quiet, although it's only a short walk to avenue Louise or 15 minutes to the hip Saint-Gilles bar area. This really is a gem.

PROS

  • large, bright rooms in a quiet residential area off the main streets
  • you can get local restaurants to deliver food to the desk and pick it up
  • ideally located for cramming in some shopping

CONS

  • it's a 10-minute walk to the Louise subway
  • residential setting might be too quiet for some
