We were in Brussels for just one night, and were lucky to get rooms in this B&B right beside Grand Place (we booked only 2 weeks in advance!). The great stuff: The location is fantastic as it's very near a tram stop Delicious breakfast with lots of spreads The service is very good. We met Theo who was very helpful.... More

Stayed at this super friendly, excellently located B&B in Downtown Brussels for three nights in June 2015. We were greeted by the owner Theo who is super cool guy, and even though we arrived a few hours before official check-in time and exhausted after a 10hr flight did his best to give us our room early. Room was super clean... More

Wonderful guesthouse in the heart of the city. I can't imagine being in a better location. The room was spacious and as it was in the rear, very quiet. The furnishings were modern and clean. The TV really didn't have much on it, but the WIFI works great so you can stay connected. There was a shared kitchen space if... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed for a night in Downtown-BXL and it was a pretty great stay. I was impressed by the size of the room and the how nicely decorated it was. Although our room overlooked the street next to it, my boyfriend and I both commented on how quiet it was - there were two sets of... More

I had a wonderful stay in this B&B for five nights in March. The location is perfect; right in the centre, subway right next to it, but still not noisy. Also, a few minutes walk to all the main attactions and the areas great little shops and cafés. Beeing an aesthetic, I was happy that I could walk around and... More

My wife and I were a little worried when we realised we were arriving to the accommodation really late in the night. We found the B&B and after calling Theo, he greeted us with the friendliest smile. We immediately fell in love with this unique B&B. Clean, peaceful, well equipped and very charming are the best words to describe Downtown-BXL.... More

This B&B - is in great location (very close to Mannekin Pis), has nice desined rooms (we had a room with a circle bed on the first floor) but it is a little bit noisy from lovely staircase. Staff is very helpful, give some tourist information and map of Bruxelles. You can use a kettle and cups to prepare for... More

We stayed in November with another couple for 2 nights. The hotel is perfectly located next to a Metro station which is only a couple of minutes ride from Brussels main line station where we arrived on the Eurostar. You could walk from the mainline station in around 15mins if you don't fancy the Metro. The rooms are very big... More
