“Perfect place to visit Brussels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is an ideally located B&B. The hostess was very pleasant, flexible and amenable, making sure we had all the help and information we needed. This was a mix of family vacation and business, and the family apartment on the top floor was fantastic! Beautiful, spacious, comfortable, but it also had the internet access important for the business part of our stay, and breakfast provided at an hour that helped us stick to our schedule. It's located immediately next to a secure parking garage, so we could leave the car and not return to it again until we were ready to leave. You have to fight a lot of traffic and confusing circulation to get there, but it's definitely a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Family room is a fully functional 2-floor apartment with kitchen, living/dining area, and 2 bathroom...

I have to add to all the great reviews, because a place as welcoming, honest and beautiful as Le Lys d'Or is hard to find. It was our peaceful "home" in the city for 4 nights...the beautiful and spacious room was great to relax in, the bed was very comfy, and the breakfast (with delicious croissants!) was just what we needed to fuel our days of walking the city. The location feels very safe, even at night, and central to the many neighborhoods in Brussels - everything we wanted to see was within 25 minutes walking. The stairs within didn't pose a problem for us as we just had carry-on luggage. Lastly, Dounia was so kind and helpful! I look forward to coming back next time we're in Brussels.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a great view, and a separate living room with dining table and desk.

The quality of the rooms here was such that I had to check the price I'd been quoted as I thought we must have been under-charged! The decor throughout is of a traditional, stylish townhouse; complete with marble fireplaces and modern chandeliers. Staying in Room 3 we had a bedroom, bathroom and lounge all to ourselves and all of a good size. It was quiet at night and we had no problem sleeping in the large, comfortable bed. The whole place was spotlessly clean.

The location was convenient for the Gare du Midi and if you want to take the metro to zap around Brussels. Avenue Japsar itself is fine but you don't have to walk far in the surrounding area before you come across the less inviting parts of the city. However, the area is clearly being renovated so I guess this will become less of a problem with time.

My daughter and I stayed here for 1 week. The hostess was charming, genuinely interested in us and very helpful. she also allowed us to use the fridge in the breakfast room to store a few things. Great location; close to metro and easy to walk to Grand Place (20 minutes). Minor downsides for long stays are that one has to ask for new towels and sheets after several days and breakfast, while nutritous, is largely the same each day.

Room Tip: Two rooms have nice view of the street but one looks out to back alley.

Staying at this B&B is close to having your own appartment in Brussels, only a stone throw away from the city center! We stayed in "room 3" and had a whole floor to ourselves (living room, bedroom, large bathroom, everything neat and clean). The bed was comfortable. Continental breakfast with everything you could ask for. On-street parking and parking lot in front of the B&B, metro station a short walk away. The city center is a 15 minute walk away. The owner was welcoming and helpful and always ready to give tips. We would definitely come back and recommand Le Lys d'Or.

This BnB was a great value for the price. We were two couples staying in the top floor which is an apartment style. Two floors, two large bedrooms with two full bathrooms, a kitchen and living area. Recently renovated as of three months, contemporary style decor. Very clean and spacious for an European apartment. Dounia, the owner, is very sweet, helpful, and responsible. The location is about 15-20 min walk to the Grande place. There is a metro right outside the building. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice b&b with very helpful hosts. We stayed in chamber 1 which was huge and clean. Nice bed and plenty of space in the room to keep your stuff. Bathroom was big and spotless as well.
Dounia was very helpful while suggesting the places to eat or things to see or while calling taxi (the ENTIRE public transport was on strike!! so this helped a lot).
The house is next to a subway station which is a big advantage. But we could easily walk to most of the central parts of the city.
Would stay here again. Price quality ratio is too good to miss.
