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. Family owned and run the Downtown Residence at Place du Samedi has been in business almost... More

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

We were absolutely blown away by the hotel, restaurant and the owner!!! We couldn't have found a better place to stay. The restaurant is cozy and the food wonderful, the owner treats you like family and takes the time to get to know you. Where else can you have a breakfast of FRESH warm croissants, ham, cheese and fresh fruits.... More

If you want a delicious dinner and an interesting conversation you should try B&B Downtown Residence in Brussels. The food it’s simply a symphony of good taste and the owner is an excellent host. We were very lucky to find this restaurant but now we will be their customer every time we will come to Brussels. Everything will exceed your... More
