Loved the location, walk to the center and shopping district is super close.I didn't even mind the small windy staircase that we had to go up to to get to our room. The owner was a very nice lady, although she did not speak much english. The only pitfalls are that there's a bar right downstairs and people were loud... More

Located in the center of Brussels, in front of the "manneken pis", this very small hotel is really confortable and nice, with a very familiar atmosphere and the price is affordable. The courtesy of the personnel is really appreciable. As the number of rooms is really limited (only 6) it is better to book far in advance, as it is... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel, I liked it very much. The room is a good size and clean. The windows opened up onto the street and to a view of the Mannekin Pis. There are two sets of windows so it stays rather quiet, but you can still hear some street noise as it is a popular location.... More

As others have noted, the hotel is in the heart of old Brussels across the street from its most famous landmark, which can be seen from the rooms. Rooms smallish and somewhat spartan, but comfortable--and very reasonable As has also been noted, there a fairly steep and narrow staircase up which luggage must be hauled.

This small, pleasant hotel is in an absolutely perfect location in the heart of Brussels, across the road from Manneken Pis and a very short walk from Grand Place. It is a laidback, well-run place, spotlessly clean with very helpful staff/management. Breakfast was fine as well - juice, bread, jam, soft cheese, tea and coffee (though the latter was not... More

I stayed in the hotel a while back and I have to say it was in a great location. Near the Grand Place and market. The rooms are very clean and the owners are very hospitable to you. I went for a project so I was on a budget. I must say the price was great and the room was... More

Ok, so it's basic. Small, steep narrow stairs, But the cleanliness is faultless and the locations is so central. This does have some drawbacks though- weekend nighttime noise could be an issue for the light sleeper, but we didn't mind. Polite staff and breakfast was served in the room. It consisted of OJ, t/c and variety of fresh breads and... More

The hotel was in a great location, across from the Mannekin Pis. The room had large window that opened wide. We didn't spend much time in the room, but when we did, it was fun to people watch the people at Mannekin Pis. The price was very reasonable for the location and cleanliness of the hotel. Definitely no frills, but... More

I´ve stayed at the hotel for only one night, for I was moving to another city the following day. It is a very small family hotel, which has less than 10 rooms. It has no elevator, only an 80 cm wide staircases, so if you are taking a big suitcase with you or have a bone fracture, discard it with... More

Spent 2 nights here, sept 9th and 10th and it was perfect for us! we had no intention of staying in while in Brussels so the fact that the rooms are smaller than here in Canada didn't bother us a bit. Breakfast was filling, fresh pastries, jams, juice and good coffee. Served at your door! bathroom was clean and more... More
