“Part of yout home with you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

It's difficult to choose how to start and what is the most important: great space for you just in the centre of Brussels, full of vibe room decorations (different on each floor), tasty breakfasts, very reasonable price (in this city dominated by over-expensive hotels)? Or maybe small tasty chocolates every day in your room?
No, the most important is Carmelo, site owner - very friendly, having always time for a chat, with full of concepts for visiting the city.
So it should be some disadvantages as well, shouldn't it? Ok, so the B&B is in the centre of red lights district so noisy neighbourhood and be prepared for many offers (but! it is safe there, not a common case in the city). The Internet have a tendency to break (but! is for free!! And you may always ask Carmelo for help).
Now, if you have to spend some time in Brussels (as me), if you need to pass 1 or 2 weeks in this city, it is a perfect choice for you. The atmosphere of this B&B will give you an impression of being home. Or at least, your own small place away of home.
Last: go make reservation fast - only 3 rooms are available.

Thank you for the great stay!

Room Tip: Top room (brown) has a great design but in a summer days may be hot there.

This place has an excellent price/quality ratio. I stayed in the room of the first floor, enough for two persons, although I was on my own. It has a lot of space, as well as kitchen and fridge if you want to use them.
Breakfast was ok and the owner is there to give you advice about places, maps and indications or nice chat. I would go back to this place without any doubt.
As only drawback, the street is not the best one in Brussels (just 30' seconds walking since it is near a main street which is perfect). Not any danger at all on my opinion, anyway, just that some people may not like it.

I stayed at this B&B (in room 1) whilst in Brussels for work recently. It was very comfortable, clean and I was impressed with the little extras - cotton wool, tissues, free wifi for example - to say it was only €55 per night. Also the breakfast is lovely - wonderful fresh bread and pastries, with cheeses, yogurts and fruit if you desire.

Room 1 is quite a small room, but for one person it was totally fine. I will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: I've only stayed in room 1; the detailed description on the website was totally accurate.

We spent a few days at Easter 2012. The place was really central, and even during a 3 days strike of public transport we didn't had much problem in visitin the city. The room, very large, extreamly clean and well equipped was a real appartment ideal even to spent some nice evenings at home after visiting Brussel... thanks to the large kitchen. The owner was really nice and helpful, and we had some nice conversations in the morning during the delicius breakfast. Morover he was really kind in providing information for our visits.
A place that we would reccomand to everyone! We hope to come back soon...

I was here with my wife and my parents, and I must say that this B&B is lovely! The decoration and organization of the rooms are simply awesome, and, I must say that we had one of the best breakfasts ever! (Missing it so much). The only thing to note are the stairs, but in our case, even with large luggage, this was not a problem at all (we had help from the owner). We absolutely recommend this B&B, the bed part if fantastic, the breakfast part is marvelous!

I have stayed here several times and it is a delight, all the previous reviews explain why.

I wish there we just more places like this all over the world. B&Bs, hotels, etc where someone places attention to detail and obviously lives and cares for the whole business of receiving guests.

The area is a little seedy but I've never had or heard of problems, it's like any big city... and does have nearby great restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: Choosing depends on space needed: studio is largest, doubles are medium & bigger, each room is s...

I was here with my gf for 2 nights and it was just an amazing experience. The hotel and the room is super clean, neat, comfortable, spotless, and organized, and you can see the owner paid a lot of attentions to the smallest details - power converter for different purposes and plugs, hair dryer, makeup sheet, extra towels.... The hotel (as well as the room I stayed in) also has tons of guidebooks and maps for you to browse and to take. The breakfast is simple but enough for you to get started for the day. And the Nespresso machine!! It is a must stay. Location is close to everything. Nothing bad to be said.
