If your notion of Brussels is all waffles and Eurocrats aplenty—think again. From Art Nouveau architecture and ancient palaces to charming cafes and design-driven boutiques, Belgium’s often overlooked capital is one of Europe’s most beautiful. And no place better captures the city’s romance like Made In Louise. This circa 1911 Belgian townhome turned 48-room boutique haven is the epitome of charm. Here’s why it’s a (hotel) affair to remember.
Chic Belgian Style. Revamped with a modern flair—yet maintaining all its historic charm (hello, original six-story staircase!)—you can’t help but be enamored at every turn.
Crimson roses climb the whitewashed courtyard, cozy armchairs front a wood-burning fireplace, and artfully written notes dress the walls. In fact, each of the 48 rooms pop with homemade touches from hand-painted wallpapers with bold prints to stylish wood-slat designs. Add in vistas of the stunning Art Nouveau cityscape and what’s not to love?
A Foodie-Lover’s Feast. From homemade Belgian delights to leafy courtyard views, the buffet breakfast plates up the perfect vibe. Indulge in insanely scrumptious eats like organic Belgian granola, gourmet pancakes, delish jams, or honey from the local beekeeper. Not to mention, wow-worthy classic waffles that will make your taste buds swoon. Plus, don’t miss the hotel’s honor bar overflowing with the most impressive collection of craft Belgian beers.
Neighborhood Crush. Set on a quiet side street in Ixelles—with breathtaking Art Nouveau-lined streets at your doorstep—this family-owned B&B couldn’t nail a more coveted locale. Just a stone’s throw from Avenue Louise, lose yourself (and your wallet) in luxe boutiques, ogle oodles of art galleries, or simply sip up the city’s beauty at a charming cafe.
And with the hotel’s nearby metro access, it’s the perfect base to explore beyond. Hit up Trainline’s app to easily plan all your day trips to Belgium’s must-visits like Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges. Plus, Netherlands’ not-to-miss faves including Amsterdam, Delft, and The Hague are all just a romantic European train ride away!
