I had spoken to Theo before arriving in Brussels and he was very friendly and helpful and lovely to meet in person. He gave us perfect directions from the station to the B&B and we found it very easily.
The B&B is in a great area of Brussels, very hip and quirky with lots of bars, cafes and shops. Sights like the Grand Place and Mannekin Pis are only a few minutes’ walk away.
Our room was up 4 flights of narrow stairs so make sure you ask if you’d rather be on a lower level. We loved our room with modern decor and a huge comfy bed. The windows looked out onto the busy street below and even though the nearby bars were always open late, with the windows closed we could hear nothing at all from outside.
Breakfast was in the main room downstairs where croissants, bread, ham, cheese, yoghurts, cereal and jams were laid out for us and Theo brought us hot drinks and juice.
We were pretty much left to our own devices and only saw Theo at breakfast so it felt more like a small guest house rather than your traditional bed and breakfast but that was perfectly fine with us as we were out most of the time exploring the city.
The only problem I had with the B&B was that the floorboards were extremely creaky and it woke me up every time someone started walking about on the floor above us. I’m an extremely light sleeper though, whereas my husband isn't, and he wasn’t disturbed at all.
A lovely place to stay and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
