Le Louise Hotel Brussels – MGallery is a tribute to the city. The hotel’s logo is inspired by the curves of Brussels’ floral Art Nouveau. The name of the hotel is a reference to its location: the famous Avenue Louise. The famous main street, named after Princess Louise, is a hotspot for fashion and a bustling street known for the large number of mansions in the Haussmann and Art Nouveau style. The hotel has a perfect location: within walking distance of the historic centre, museums and other attractions of Brussels. From any part of the city, the hotel is easily reached by public transport, whether by metro, streetcar or train. Set around a central and bright courtyard garden, the hotel features a restaurant and a bar with a large outdoor terrace. The 159 rooms and 10 suites have breath-taking views of the park and Avenue de la Toison d’Or. The homely atmosphere adds to its unique character. In addition to the great location and elegant atmosphere of the Le Louise Hotel Brussels, Mariano Van Cleve is the hotel’s concierge and also honorary president of Les Clefs d’Or for Belgium, guaranteeing an unforgettable stay and excellent local knowledge.
