Hotel review - Hôtel La Louve, Louviere, Belgium

In the standard room that we booked there was a heavy sewage smell.

The superior room they gave us after we complained was OK.

The breakfast was poor.

Free internet and free parking places behind the hotel.

Overall, poor value for money for a stay at this hotel (we paid 75 euro per night).
