This was our first stop in Europe after approximately 24 hours in transit and it was exactly what we needed! The accommodation was easy to find from the train station (around 10 mins walk), and the room was spacious, clean and well appointed. When we arrived Sofie warmly welcomed us and graciously assisted with carrying our luggage up the stairs to our room. The bathroom was great and the shower was brilliant! (No bath shower here!) The bed was a little uncomfortable as we tended to fall towards the middle (was also two single mattresses joined together - not a king) during the night and the pillows were European (square) and a bit too large to be comfortable. The room we stayed in "Room 3" also lacked a little privacy (ie, you can kind of hear people in the hallway - and they could hear you.) The breakfast in the morning was excellent with a good selection of fresh fruits, cereal, bread, cheeses and eggs. There is also free wi-fi provided - and it was excellent the whole time we were there. The accommodation is an enjoyable 10 minute stroll from the Grand Place (city square) and the city of Brussels is perfect as a first stop-over, if you (like us) were looking for somewhere to unwind. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed staying at "Sweet Brussels" - and would recommend it to other travellers. We had an excellent experience here (with only minor qualms about the bed/pillows).
