What a gem! This place was charming from minute one... We entered the residence through the restaurant and were promptly greeted by the wonderful owner of this perfectly located B&B. Check in was simple... He wasn't worried as much about us paying for the room... He wanted to make sure we liked the room and were comfortable. Customer service like... More

I choose this location based on other reviews and we were not disappointed at all. We were greeted by Louie. He was so kind. He helped us to our room on the second floor. I won't say anything else about the stairs because so many others have mentioned them. I will only say it was a gorgeous stairwell! Our room... More

Overall a fantastic staff. The owner was very friendly and his staff friendly and very helpful. The B&B was very clean and well kept. Breakfast was very good, and eating in his restaurant was amazing.... Fantastic food! Only a 5-10 min walk to the center of the city with plenty of shops and things to see. Parking in the parking...

We had stayed here two years ago and couldn’t wait to get back: it lived up to our fond memories. Still great rooms, delicious breakfasts, and a fine location, situated between the Beguinage and Ste. Catherine churches, a short distance to the DeBrouckere Metro stop (one line to the Brussels Midi train station), and walking distance to the Grand Place,... More

We had a fantastic stay at Downtown Residence. The location really can't be topped. Although we were in the smallest of the 3 rooms, the very high ceilings made the room seem spacious. Bed and shower were great!

The owner of this guesthouse is a kind old man who will talk your ear off and charm you with his eccentricity. The rooms are decent, clean and comfortable to stay in. We had a suite and I stayed on the pull out sofa --it was horrible. Don't try to get any sleep on the pull out sofa because it's... More

A colleague and I stayed here for 1 night while in Brussels. I felt like I had found a long lost relative. This was great. Perhaps they had only 4 rooms and you may have to climb a steep spiral staircase to your room, but it is worth the effort. When I informed the owner that I needed to move... More

Well here it is. The little continental cafe / accommodation of everyone's imagination. Painted the delicious fading red that promises a warm welcome on a cold winter's day.And tucked away on a quiet little back street corner despite the busy city roads close by.

I am sure the REAL Downtown Residence at Place du Samedi 15 is good. BUT I tried to book it using the Booking.Com button via TripAdvisor (as above) and ended up staying at ANOTHER DOWNTOWN RESIDENCE at 10 Rue de Laeken. SO I WAS CONNED. The other one is not very clean and it was very difficult to sleep at... More
