Family Adventure

Mélanie and Martin Dechateau are brother and sister, inseparable, driven by the same passion for hospitality and both graduates of the Lausanne Hotel school!

In 2011, they bought the old hotel Louise.  With their mum, who's an interior designer, they renovated the hotel, with respect for the style and charm of this 20th century Brussels townhouse.  

Renamed Made in Louise, the project is a roaring success: it feels just like home!


An ecological approach

Our goal is to combine quality in our services while respecting the environment. In order to preserve resources, we control our consumption of electricity and water as well as the production of our waste.

Our various ecological and environmental approaches enabled us to obtain the Green Key label in July 2020. The Green Key is the first international ecolabel. Its objective is to achieve climate neutrality in the tourism sector and to develop sustainable, ecologically virtuous and socially responsible tourism.

Energy self-sufficient, Made in Louise uses a cogeneration unit that produces electricity with an engine powered by natural gas.  We thus heat the hotel and our domestic water. This project was set up thanks to a Belgian company specializing in green energy, Bee Energy Forever®.

We also want to limit the consumption of single-use water bottles. We provide our guests with a filtering water fountain. We also sell reusable bottles in partnership with Join the Pipe®, a Dutch company that promotes fair access to drinking water.


The guarantee of an authentic stay

Deeply rooted in local life, Made in Louise nourishes its dynamic by combining innovation and authenticity, and by collaborating with inspiring and talented partners.

We select cleaning and hospitality products that respect the environment in order to guarantee impeccable rooms.

The majority of our products are organic, local and/or fair trade certified. As soon as you wake up, you can enjoy a tasty breakfast. And throughout the day, you can treat yourself to an irresistible snack or a refreshing drink at our Market Bar.

We also offer innovative and environmentally friendly services to make your visit to Brussels memorable and unique.
