“Highly recommended.”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Cannot recommend highly enough and star only lost because of absence of lift.
Very well situated, near to Munthof/Monnaies metro and 10 minutes max from Midi train station. Dounia and her husband are both welcoming and helpful. English is spoken as well as French. Extremely good value for money.
Stayed in Room 3 which is very large and the bed was very comfortable. More than adequate storage space.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

I couldn't recommend this place more to anyone who is looking for an apartment to stay in central Brussels. The convenience of the location, the wonderful, homely ambience, the continental breakfast and Dounia's wonderful hospitality made this my favourite experience in Brussels.

The nearest metro station is Munthof/Hotel des Monnaies and connects easily to the heart of the city in Grand Place. What I love about this location is that it is in a wonderful, quiet area near the Avenue Louise, flea market of Place du Jeu de Balle and the Palais de Justice etc. I stayed in another apartment near the Grand Place (Rue des Dominicains) and found the whole area crudely touristy and lacking finesse compared to this wonderful area.

At the price of 75Euro per night for Room 1, it was a fantastic deal. Our room was large and spacious, toilets clean and bright and breakfast was more than sufficient (ask for eggs!). The cherry on top was the lovely owner, Dounia, who went out of her way to carefully explain the resources available at the lobby area, including the maps and guides etc. She was always hugely accommodating, helping us call to make reservations at restaurants.

I chose to stay here as I had read the raving reviews here on Tripadvisor and could not recommend this place any more fervently.

Room Tip: I liked room 1! On the 2nd floor and near the breakfast room.

First off, this place is very conveniently located next to a metro station, and is a short walk away from other major venues such as the Justice Palace and Ave Louise. Upon entering the house, you will have to carry your luggage up a narrow staircase to the second floor - it is quite a climb, especially if you have big and heavy bags. We were extremely pleased with Bedroom 1, which we stayed in for two nights. It was very spacious, pleasantly decorated, and well-maintained.

Our host was friendly and helpful throughout the stay, constantly attending to our needs and helping us make phone calls in French. The continental breakfast that she prepares every morning is delicious as well. All in all, staying here was a wonderful and worry-free experience, and we would definitely come back if we could in the future.

A few of my friends and I stayed in Bedroom 3 for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. It lets you feel as if you have an apartment in Brussels, like a true local! Very clean, taken care of, and you can tell she puts a lot of love into hosting people here. Beds were incredible, even the pull-out bed was comfortable. Fresh sheets, towels, and a great bathroom. Breakfast was very nice and filling, and catered to your wish. Very secure also from the outside, requiring an electronic card, and two locked doors to get to your room at night. Also, the metro (subway) station is literally 50 feet from the front door. So convenient! I can't wait to come back to Brussels and stay here again!

Room Tip: Bedroom 3 can sleep 5 people and has two rooms, Bedroom 2 is very nice a private, great for couples...

The owner of this place was extremely resourceful and provided great services. Loved the breakfast before we took off for the day. Room was extremely clean and the shower/bathroom was incredible. Our four person room was very elegant and we loved it. My favorite thing was the location. There is a subway station literally half a block away to take you where ever you wanted to go.

Located very centrally at a stone's throw from Monnaie metro station, we were welcomed in a very warm and friendly manner. our room was located in the 2nd floor so it is difficult to carry heavy luggage but having said that, the room was HUGE and a divine experience. I felt that the room temperature could have been a little well regulated specially in the bathroom, but having said that, it was a very comfortable experience. The staff is VERY helpful and friendly and the continental breakfast was delicious.
Overall: GREAT location, VERY good stay and HELPFUL staff.

Room Tip: 2nd floor, Chambre 2

We were staying on the first floor in the B&B overlooking the road but room was very quiet so don't need to worry about that. Big room with lovely fireplace, lots of storage and big bed.

No extra blankets (blanket/sheets on bed weren't that thick) in the room as we got home quite late, it was too late to ask for one.

Ideal location for us as we arrived at 1pm and were leaving at 10am the next day, 15 min walk from station, 15 min walk into centre.

Bathroom was big with a nice shower.

Kettle & cups in the room but no tea bags so bring some yourself.

Breakfast is very simple: croissant, bread, cream cheese and other condiments. Don't think there was any cereal left in the dispensers and no one else at breakfast had eaten cereal that morning.

But overall, good value for money and very nice b&b
