Hotel Review: Made in Louise, Brussels
In a quiet residential street in the fashionable Ixelles district, this large mansion exudes a laidback atmosphere with its light colours, open spaces and careful eye for design, mixing modern wallpapers and vintage furnishings; it's more like the large home of a wealthy family friend than a hotel. Bedrooms are pared-back spaces, while splendid breakfasts are served in the conservatory overlooking a large courtyard. There's an honesty bar, too.
Rooms available from £95.28 per night

THE LOOK AND FEEL
The large and sprawling early 20th-century building, with its six-storey stairwell, has been opened up to create a series of airy and stylish spaces. Pale coloured walls, parquet or tiled flooring, bold-patterned rugs and wallpapers, and a mix of contemporary and vintage furniture create a laidback atmosphere. There's also a modern conservatory overlooking the courtyard.
