The 5-star Hotel Sofitel Brussels Le Louise is in the leafy Avenue Louise district -- "the byword for high-end shopping in Brussels", says The Daily Telegraph.
According to Condé Nast Traveler, "the Belgian capital is having a moment in the spotlight as a ville créative, from Stromae's catchy music to the fashionable concept stores and design ateliers that are popping up across town".
The city's historic Grand Place -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site and "one of Europe's most beautiful squares" (Rough Guides) -- is a 25-minute stroll from the hotel. The European Parliament, the Royal Palace, the Magritte Museum and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium are all less than 15 minutes' walk away.
The hotel interior has a "whimsical, theatrical touch" (The Daily Telegraph), with bold furniture, quirky wallpaper, surrealist sculptures and lace-patterned walls. The gourmet Crystal Lounge restaurant has a stylish terrace, with an adjoining bar that serves champagne cocktails and sometimes hosts live DJ sets.
Guestrooms feature a minimalist design with white leather and dark wood furnishings. Superior Rooms are more spacious than Classic Rooms and have garden views. Wi-Fi is free.
