we almost dont want to write this review but its only fair to share the wealth. a lovely hotel B&B. yes, its overloaded with 'antiques' and vintage charm; yes, the owner can be a bit quirky; but she was wonderful to us, treated us like royalty; breakfast was delightful -- fresh croissants, yogurt, cheeses, coffee, fresh squeezed OJ, etc. -- and each morning we got to chat with others. our room [#3] was remarkably spacious [with a loft and kitchenette], the bathroom was so charming and the shower worked well; the bed was extremely comfortable, the decor inviting and unique. we especially loved all the plants and orchids, and loved coming back to the hotel every evening [we spent a week here]. we've travelled to so many places, so many hotels, but none is as memorable as this one, and if we return to brussels, we will certainly stay here again.…
I have been staying at this hotel with my boyfriend and we both absolutely loved it. The owner was really nice and welcoming, the room were decorated with a lot of taste and the house itself is absolutely beautiful !!! A very warm hotel feeling like home <3 Also all place of interest are close Best hotel I have been in Brussels
I visited stayed at Les Bluets a couple of times and i loved it. All rooms and bathrooms are different, but totally authentic, almost like you stay at cultural heritage site. Its nice and private, and in the morning breakfast is served in the large room with round table and many green trees around. The highlight of the breakfast are homemade croissants. If you are tired of hotels which all look alike, this is perfect place to stay and feel real local life.
This small hotel is a taste of old Europe. Crowded nineteenth century decor gives you the feeling of living Brussels in the past. The rooms are up steep stairs on 2nd and 3rd floor. Breakfast around a communal table gives you the opportunity to speak to other guests. Good location, near a metro station. Good value.
I discovered les Bluets around 20 years ago as a student and have recently returned to it as work has taken me to Brussels for several overnight stays. I was delighted to find it still there and Madame Myriam still in charge hardly looking any different to how I remember her, although I think she may have softened somewhat over that time. I have certainly not experienced so many instructions on recent visits! (And to be fair that is part of the charm of the hotel for without Madame's care and passion for this wonderful place which can occasionally manifest itself in a jarring rebuke or instruction - the jam must be put back on the carousel! - it would not be what it is - a jewel!). Read other reviews for descriptions etc but believe me what I say this is an almost magical,please with a genuine heart and soul.…
Not your usual hotel. In fact it's a guest house. Profusely decorated with potplants, paintings, objects d'art. Breakfast is an experience. Single table with a 'lazy susan' rotating glass top laden down with pots of jam etc..Did not enjoy.
Wow. What a find. This is a guest house, not a hotel, but it is fabulous. It is like going back in time about 100 years. Wonderful old house run by the owner Myriam. Our room (No3) was brilliant. Two bedrooms and one modern bathroom with bath and shower, and a Juliet balcony. Very warm, even in December. Free wifi in every room. Myriam waited up for us until after midnight as we arrived late. Nearest metro stop is only around 300m away Hotel les Monnaies), so easy access to all of Brussels, including the magnificent Christmas market in Ste. Catherine area. Designer shopping street Waterloo is just up the road. Breakfast is adequate for continental. Highlight was the fresh strawberries every day! Thank you Myriam for a wonderful stay at your lovely home! We loved it!
My husband and I stayed at Les Bluets at the beginning and end of a bike tour we made around the the Low Countries. I could tell at first the hostess was a bit unsure about us--we are younger (32) and ended up here after the other hotel we booked was closed for a holiday when we arrived, and sent us to Les Bluets last minute. Our bikes were delayed getting to Brussels, and Madame Myriam was very helpful, calling the airport for us several times. After our bikes arrived, she seemed decide that we were OK, and she let us store the bags we brought our panniers in while we made our tour, agreeing to have us back again. She is definitely a somewhat strict hostess (understandable since it is her home as well), but we both liked her a lot and found her to be quite helpful and accommodating on numerous occasions. We were charmed by the bric-a-brac, and enjoyed both the rooms we ended up staying in. The price was very reasonable, especially since it included breakfast, and it was a peaceful place to sleep. Overall, it helped make our stay in Brussels even more pleasant and memorable.…
We had a really nice room with kitchenette and bathroom. The location is good and within walking distance of much of Belgium. Very comfortable and the breakfast is OK. As with other reviews, it is a Bed & Breakfast and not a hotel. We were told on booking that we were expected to pay cash, so that was not an issue. The owner is a bit eccentric and opinionated, but we found her pleasant and helpful.
This is a very affordable stay. Our room was very large and full of antiques! It was absolutely gorgeous and the owner was very nice and helpful. We had a kitchen for our personal use and breakfast was held in a beautiful room.
