“Fantastic B&B and reasonable price - highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

I stayed in the room which included a terrace and kitchen for 4 days, and absolutely loved it. The host, Julie, was helpful and cheerful. The daily continental breakfast bag was delivered and hung on the door every morning, containing fresh and delicious breads, fruits, yoghurt and cheese.

Kitchen and dining area was large and we enjoyed making a couple meals, using local ingredients. Yum!

Free wifi was a definitely plus and the B&B is in central location, within 20 minutes walk of all the sights, but not so close that it would feel tacky or 'touristy'.

Small note to the hosts: the kitchen did not have a cutting knife (had a cutting board so strange that there was no knife!) and there was no salt or cooking (olive?) oil. Apart from that, everything was perfect.

Room Tip: Plump for the room with the kitchen. The added size is well worth it. Probably quieter too as not lo...

The key was left on a table to a room which was a wee bit hard to find at first, but it was ideal. It is an immaculate hotel with friendly staff (who didn't appear until the next morning). The location is a fair step from the centre of brussels, but is in an okay area of the town. We managed to find a great pub round the corner with the friendliest of folk.
Comfy bed, good shower and nice room. All good.

The entrance is so discrete that I first missed it. An entry code was provided to open the front door. On a table there was an envelope with my key and an instruction how to find the room, Two stories up (no elevator) and I was happy to travel light. The door number was placed in the top right corner and it took some time to find my room.
The room was large. The standard was high, a nice bed, free wifi and a flatscreen TV. I was missing a desk to place my laptop so I ended up with the laptop in my lap sitting in the bed, not very comfortable.
An extended continental breakfast was included with yoghurt, bread, juice, cheese, coffee or tea. The bread was fresh and coffee excellent.
The location was in a few minutes walking distance from the EU Parliament and the EU commission and other European institutions.

What a great place to stay. This was the first time I stayed here, having normally used hotels whenever I travel to Brussels and not been satisfied with what I got in cheaper hotels. This place, for the same price, or less provided a very professional service. Very smart, clean and quiet. The free and reliable WiFi was a welcome bonus. I would certainly stay again. Book early, as the are often fully booked.

Beautiful B&B!
Small, quiet, cozy and with an amazing minimalist design. Unfortunately we stayed only for one night but I will definitively stay here again if I come back to Brussels.
Very good location if you are coming for truism and also close to the EU parliament.
Rooms are spacious and ours even had a nice terrace. Breakfast was great and hosts took good care of us and gave us a great recommendation for restaurants.
The place has been completely renovated and it's in great conditions... and most important, it is super clean! Worth trying it.

Urbanrooms is a wonderful B&B! Great location: walking distance to a lot of trendy restaurants and to city center. Amazing rooms: comfortable, design, luxurious bathrooms, great beds. Delicious breakfast and last but definitely not least: amazing hosts! Julie & Tanguy are extremely friendly and charming, and they are always ready and willing to provide you with expert recommendations about places to see and things to do around Brussels. All this makes Urban rooms the perfect place to stay, both for a romantic city trip or for an efficient business trip!

This B&B is a converted apartment over multiple levels. It has a limited amount of rooms and might not be the best for families, but I thought it was an excellent choice for my work-related trip and can imagine it would be very nice for couples as well. The B&B is very clean, modern and comfortable and is situated a short walk from the Metro. It's also close to EU Parliament and easy walking distance to a number of restaurants. The breakfast is excellent - a variety of healthy options and fresh-pressed juice. The only drawbacks are that you have to climb up a few levels of stairs - tedious with luggage - and I thought the pillows were quite uncomfortable. If possible, try to email the B&B in advance with your arrival time so that the woman who owns knows to expect you as she isn't always there.
