This apartment is not as presented. Poorly equipped...the bed is on cinder blocks which you trip iver if you get up in the night.,, was promised free breakfast but then the manager said it would be 84 euro charge for the 4 of us. Not nice people and it is located in a very ethnic neighborhood and a tough walk... 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 here for a couple nights in December and really enjoyed the experience! The owner was super friendly and helpful - we really enjoyed the delicious breakfasts in the morning with other guests (i could eat speculoos forever!!). The room was nice although we were a bit disappointed when we found the 'ensuite' room we had booked had a... 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. What a delightful surprise! Karin has a wealth of knowledge on Belgian history, and a particular fondness for Brussels. She shared with us all the BEST things to... More

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

This is a late review but I visited this place October 2012 and stayed for three days. It was not possible to lock my room and even worth, the door would open if there was a draught. It is pretty embarrassing to have no privacy at all in a B&B. But the worth experience was the lack of hot water... More

I have been to Brussels for years and years - a few times this year already - . This time I decided to stay somewhere different rather than the usual hotel. I didn't know what to expect, but it was really different. More like staying with a family - indeed you have breakfast with the multi-lingual and charming family and... More

I really enjoyed three nights spent in Brussels. An unexpected, wonderful city and, above all, a charming, fascinating old building. Art, design, culture, warmth, friendliness, all mixed. Having breakfast in that amazing garden was really great. Nice building, beautiful rooms, everything positive even if the position was not very close to the city centre. The last thing I want to...

I checked in together with a friend of mine - the room at first looked a bit messy but it turned out to be quite fancy! I admit: being there with a friend whom you don't know that well could be a bit strange - in our room there where no door for the toilet and the shower had transparent... More
