    i loved this place, not convencional at all. It was perfect for one night., We had to take a connecting flight so we stayed for one night in brussels and we just made the perfect choice, it's in the center, close enough to the airport (taxis are very expensive in Brusells) I liked that it was decorated so personally, artistic...

    Picked The Phileas Fogg after some considerable research. It looked good online, was in the right location and reasonably priced. I made a confirmed booking but when I arrived (after a 24 hour journey) was told that I'd been moved to another location because they'd now received a longer booking for the room! Had to tramp through the streets with... More

    I sometimes travel to Brussels for work and I'm quite fed up with the expensive and characterless hotel experiences. I tried this time if there's something a bit more personal, and I loved the experience. Sure, it is the kind of place that you might end up hating if you dislike there being a friendly dog, or that there's no... More

    This Bed and Breakfast is nothing like advertised. It is in a really dingy condition, the neighborhood is sketchy, our bed was extremely uncomfortable, the room isn't insulated at all (you can hear all noise from all neighborhoods crystal clear), and management was extremely inconsiderate to guest needs. We stayed in several accommodation in Brussels, and this was by far... More

    Sad to read this review, as the bed is a typical Japanese style design bed, misunderstood obviously by these clients; hated by some, loved by many. As for the breakfast charges, they were very well aware breakfast was incl. and my new assistant confused with another booking system. We never charged extra for breakfast and cleared up the misunderstanding. As... More

    We stayed at Phileas Fogg for several days, in two different rooms, in June 2014 at the beginning and end of our 12-day trip to Belgium. It's located in a quiet residential neighborhood within easy walking distance to the center of Brussels and close to the subway and trams. It's calm, comfortable and homey. The beds were very comfortable and... More

    We stayed at The Phileas Fogg for 3 nights, and could not have been more impressed! The hostess/owner, Karin sat with us over Breakfast each morning, and couldn't have offered better hospitality.

    I went to Brussels in March 2014 and stayed in the Phileas Fogg BnB for two weeks. I specifically wanted to stay in a BnB rather than a hotel or something similar, because I wanted more of a personal experience. I was specifically looking for a place where you will be treated as part of the family. I was not... More

    I have to go to Brussels on business every month or so. I typically stay in one of those "anonymous hotels" : convenient, clean ... and boring. Pretty much identical wherever you go in the world. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try something different and didn't regret it whatsoever. I was first intrigued by the mixed reviews... More
