This is a luxurious hotel in the heart of the (expensive!) Louise shopping district so don't forget your credit cards!
Service was exceptional but you would expect that from a 5* hotel and they went out of their way to make our stay extra special with a cake and 'happy birthday' note from the manager no less for my fiances birthday.
The decor is first class, the beds the most comfortable I have slept in and the bathroom is great with a powerful shower...only problem with this was the design. It was a wet room and the water tended to 'flood' into the main bathroom area where the sink was but it was no great problem.
The rooms were of a large size, plenty of wardrobe and storage space and they even changed the duvet to a non-down one due to my allergies.
the only thing I would say is that it may be a bit far from the main Grand Place area for some people - it is a brisk 20 minute walk. As compensation the sites on the way down from the hotel to this area are fabulous - wonderful views of the city, a stroll through the Sablon area - wonderful!
the bar is on the expensive side..but I guess that is what you get for a 5* hotel - it's worth it for the people watching!
This hotel is not one for the kids - definately the romantic weekend away market.
Unique Quality: wonderful customer service, fabulous showers. Definately one for a romantic break and not to take the kids!
Directions: 2 mins from Louise metro stop over the road from Tiffany!
Top class hotel by Galeries Louise.
Even if I had made my reservations on the web, it took a very long time to book. The personnel was not up to the class of the hotel. (probably I was unlucky to find a trainee left alone).
Rooms were amazing, and the beds are among the best of all hotels.
Unfortunately, I had too many meetings and appointments outside, i could not really enjoy the hotel, only for short nights.
Unique Quality: The beds and matresses are amazing.
Directions: Petite Ceinture, Porte Louise
hi guys hope you can help. What is the best way to get to Sofitel Le louise hotel? We are flying into Brussels and were planning on getting the train in - which is best way? - I believe i have to get to 'louise' metro station - where do I chance?
Take the airport train to Gare du Midi, which is the 3rd stop (after Nord and Central), cost €5.05 from the ticket office at the station below the airport. Then change to metro to Louise, cost about €1.60 (depends on which type of ticket/support you choose), just follow the metro signs at the station, and buy tickets from the ticket office or machines on the metro level. When you arrive at Midi, orientating yourself by the way the metro was going, you need to exit to the right, and then go up the escalator on the left, probably marked something like Toison d'Or. You will come out by a Quick burger place, walk straight on and your hotel is just after the entrance to the Louise shopping gallery.
thank you that is really helpful - especially for someone like me that has no sense of direction!
