This B&B was excellent. When we checked in, the host told us that one of his larger rooms was not in use - he moved us in there. He asked us when we would want breakfast each day (breakfast consisted of pastries, bread, jam, yogurt, fruit, coffee, tea). The room was a nice two-story loft with a great view of Brussels and a living room.
Understand what type of place you're booking. Save for one exception, this could be a four/four-and-a-half star accommodation. But the bathroom is shared with another room. We literally never saw the person in the other room and the bathroom was always clean. If I hadn't been told it was shared, I would have never known. Overall, this fact was out of place with the quality of the place.
The host, again, was excellent. Each morning, he helped us plan out our day. He recommended chocolateries, friteries, waffleries, Belgian beers, museums, good walks, bike rentals, fun neighborhoods, etc. He knew a LOT about Brussels. He helped us plan a trip to Bruges and Ghent. He could not have been friendlier. He was very conversational and made himself available for his guests.
I have read a review that says the place was covered with dust and that the bathroom was dirty. I didn't really notice this. Perhaps it was cleaned up in light of that review. Overall, the place was very clean.
I really liked the neighborhood. After travelling to a lot of European cities, they start to run together for me. This was a very friendly, multi-cultural neighborhood about 20 minutes (by foot) from the city center. There were plenty of nice restaurants around there. The architecture is beautiful. You'll see a side of Brussels you wouldn't normally get.
In terms of a price-quality ratio, this is unbeatable.
