We have just returned from Brussels and this accommodation. The three of us were placed in the "madame butterfly" room in the annex. This is a large room, with an extra large en suite, with all the facilities required for a relaxing stay. The owners were friendly and accommodating,and the breakfast was fresh each day continental style. All in all... More

My husband and I stayed here with our two daughters (22 and 9). Rooms are very spacious and location is perfect. A quick walk to the Grand Place and much less crowded than places around the square. The only negative was the pedestrian alley that dead ends by the door. At nite, young teens loiter and we did witness them... More

My husband and I stayed in the apartment above the art gallery, and we were extremely happy with our entire experience. The owners were friendly and welcoming, the apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed, and the location was fantastic. People with mobility issues may find the spiral staircase a bit challenging, however we were fine with it. All... More

My parents stayed here between 14-21 of May and they were very pleased. The hotel is situated at 200 meters from Mannekin Pis and about 500 meters from the metro stop. The area is very quiet. The building is old with a spiral staircase (a bit uncomfortable). It has 2 floors with 3 rooms on each floor. The Butterfly room... More

Location perfect. Room perfect. His and her bathroom sinks perfect and unexpected, owner helpfulness perfect, bed comfort perfect, price for a downtown local reasonable, very reasonable. If in Brussels and you desire affordable comfort in the heart of the city, then stay there. Perfect cannot be improved upon!

As a frequent traveller to Brussels I only stay here if I can help it. Quiet location, clean and safe, impeccable rooms. Not to mention the lovely hosts, Daniel and Catherine. Located just off the Grand Place, near enough both some of the best attractions and also a pleasant 30 minute walk from Schumann (for those who like me come... More

We were impressed by Brussels and decided to visit them the second time. We choose B&B Taptoe II because it`s place where you feel really like at home. Really great location - near Manneken-Pis; Grand Place, Cathedral and Brussels Central is 5-minute walk away. We lived in Sarabande room again. 2st floor. The room clean and spacious, with splendid bed,... More

Taptoe has a great location...right by Manneken-Pis, so if his clothes are being changed and there is a big celebration, it is easy to get in on that. Grand Place is only a 5-minute walk away. Our room at Taptoe was large and quite comfortable, the bath was quite large (it had 2 vanities). Breakfast was limited and the kitchen... More

Taptoe's location is excellent. It's a 3-minute walk from the Manneken-Pis so it's very easy to find. We were given an extremely brief welcome/tour of our room and promptly left with the keys and instructions to drop them in a mail slot the next morning. The room and bathroom were comfortable and large. The Wi-Fi signal was very strong and... More
