It was my second time in Brussels since 2007. Nothing changed apart from the restaurants and the weather. Visiting Europe is always different in between seasons. Sofitel Brussels Le louise was the first choice and only choice for this trip for obvious reasons. The close proximity to La Gare Bruxelle Midi. (7 minutes by car and 15 minutes by foot. I did time it) Ideally situated on Toison d’Or in Le Louise, the luxury shopping district of Brussels, the entrance appears a sense of exclusivity given its discretion from the street, (I almost missed it in the dark) but the long escalator, the ruby pink crystal chandeliers with a wall carved with lace patterns made it clear that this was l’art de vivre by architect Antoine Pinto and this, was going to be the trend setting hotel of my trip.
Sofitel Brussels Le Louise Hotel Review
There are 169 rooms to chose from and 10 suites. I had booked a suite naturally for the sake of research. The hotel blends Belgian surrealism with French elegance and some history. Fornasetti’s art is everywhere. Different shades of purple reflect almost everything blended in with the luxury. It makes luxury so trendy with art deco and keeping in mind the little things like a Nespresso Machine in every room, wonderful amneties with lemon scents to your toiletries. Your view could be by the garden or the city view. Most of all, the beds in most Sofitel I have been to are extremely difficult to get out of. Just perfect to stay in during the winter!
In My Room 1 King size bed, large living area, courtyard view. Stylish room of 50 m² (538 sqf) courtyard views, large living, dressing room, Nespresso machine, BOSE radio with iPod dock, complimentary high-speed Internet, most bathrooms with separate rain-shower and bathtub, 2 flat screen TVs, complimentary minibar.
Sofitel Brussels Le Louise has all the facilities of a 5-star hotel in Brussels, including a modern fitness center, dry cleaning service, parking and babysitting. At the hotel, 6 different languages where spoken and as for Mariano VAN CLEVE, the knowledgeable Concierge at Sofitel Brussels Le Louise, took me around the hotel for a special one on one tour guide and explained all the reasons behind the decor and architecture.
For breakfast, a delicious selection of cold cuts, croissants baskets, eggs, fruits, juices and cereals were on a buffet table. We always sat by the wndow facing the garden because it was quite warm inside. The hotel is famous for the sexy and trendy Crystal lounge by the Award-winning chef Adwin Fontein. I had ordered room service on one of the nights because I needed to stay in and work and loved eating a club sandwich in bed!
Perfect location to be right at the center. 7 minutes by car and 15 minutes by foot and prime location for the luxury shopping area of Brussels. The upscale side of town.
If you love trendy art luxury, fine dining or love staying up late at a fancy bar, then Sofitel Le Louise is for you! If you love to be at the center of the luxury shopping district and close to Bruxelles Midi Station and close by the central touristic sites then you could not go wrong here. Particularly liked their breakfast stations but would have loved to visit here in summer when the courtyard is open. Honeymooners and families too.
