We arrived on a Saturday afternoon, and the bar/terrace was deserted. Just a hand full of customers and a very forlorn atmosphere. It took forever for our drinks to arrive, and when they did, they were not worthy of a five star hotel bar. The Bellini (champagne and peach) tasted far too sweet, as did my husbands champagne cocktail. The... More

We had a quick dinner there after our arrival at the hotel. This lounge bar has a good selection of dishes in a informal setting but yet elegant and cosy. Service is friendly and quite quick. Would love to go back next time we are in Brussels!!

The day that we arrived in Brussels we decided just to stay in the hotel for dinner. We were not disappointed. Our dinner was lovely, the service impeccable.

I enjoy this lounge, however I get at times aggravated as it is not always properly maned at at times it takes a long time before you are able to order a drink.

The Loui Bar is the place to meet with friends or for a business meeting. This Bar has a lunch menu of exeptional quality and the atmosphere is always pleasantly relaxed.

After a few visits at the Loui bar I have to say the five star experience of the same bar formerly run by Conrad hotel has faded. OK Brussels is not a hip place these days, but as most of tea-rooms and bars disappeared we were used to have a happy hour drink at the Conrad and enjoy late afternoon... More

Comfortable (but expensive) bar tarnished by incredibly bad service. I've been here many times because staying in the hotel: it is cozy and relaxing. But the servers seem to have been trained to ignore customers. It is a small place, but getting a drink or the bill takes a very long time - servers seem to make a game out... More

Cool down in a nice, classic bar with good space and everything you can wish to drink. The relaxing atmosphere has always been there. But it takes time, the service is slow..... More than ever. And not very pleasant and professional. The stairs were dirty too. And the drinks are of course very expensive. The bar is situated at hotel... More

I really loved this bar at the former Conrad Hotel (now Steigenberger) as it was a very cosy and relaxed atmosphere with fantastic attentive staff. We visited this bar last weekend and at the entrance hall the smell from the smokers room drafted through the whole hotel and the Loui Bar. We waited good five minutes until a waiter deemed... More

The Mai Tai I had was excellent. Beautifully presented, garnished with an orchid. Service was a bit slow (we waited 15 minutes after asking for our check). Complimentary snacks were a nice touch.
