We stayed 2 nights here and would highly recommend Downtown-BXL. The location is excellent; just a 2 minute walk to Grand Place. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. The building has been nicely renovated, but there are only stairs (as it says on the website), so factor that in if you have large bags.... More

The people who run BXL are simply awesome. Kind, helpful and really friendly. The BnB is situated in a great location and everything is within walking distance...especially all the main tourist destinations. It is near a good public transport system too so it is very easy to find everything! Breakfast was great, room was lovely and I would happily stay... More

We stayed eight nights in room 1, which is one flight up. It was spacious, comfortable, and light. Although on a busy street the windows and drapes kept all noise out and it was very quiet. The round bed was so comfortably firm and large. With the room comes a great breakfast in a cozy dining area on the ground... More

Paint chipped off wall. 5 flights up narrow stairs could create escape problem in case of fire. Room "decorated" in 1970's east village style, if that's your thing go for it. Indifferent man who stands around a lot smoking cigarettes seemingly running the place decided that my wife and I should pay for breakfast even though it's a B&B. Which... More

We were glad to be accommodated in room 1 because we had heavy suitcases. This place has a very steep staircase! But the room was very large and clean, with stylish decor and a comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent and the server very attentive. He also helped us greatly on the day of our departure by arranging for a... More

The great stuff: The location is fantastic as it's very near a tram stop Delicious breakfast with lots of spreads The service is very good. We met Theo who was very helpful.... More

Stayed at this super friendly, excellently located B&B in Downtown Brussels for three nights in June 2015. We were greeted by the owner Theo who is super cool guy, and even though we arrived a few hours before official check-in time and exhausted after a 10hr flight did his best to give us our room early. Room was super clean... More

Wonderful guesthouse in the heart of the city. I can't imagine being in a better location. The room was spacious and as it was in the rear, very quiet. The furnishings were modern and clean. The TV really didn't have much on it, but the WIFI works great so you can stay connected. There was a shared kitchen space if... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed for a night in Downtown-BXL and it was a pretty great stay. I was impressed by the size of the room and the how nicely decorated it was. Although our room overlooked the street next to it, my boyfriend and I both commented on how quiet it was - there were two sets of... More
