“A perfect start to Europe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

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).

My partner and I stayed at this B&B recently. Benno and Freida (the owners) we so lovely and their B&B was just as nice. On arrival Freida greeted us and gave us a tour of the house, a map of Bruge and then she sat down with us and suggested some nice walking tracks. When we went up to our room - it was massive! We had our own tea/coffee and mini fridge (the beer and coke were only 1 euro).
The breakfast was the highlight of our stay at this B&B - Benno whips up your eggs, bacon and coffee anyway you request. We will definitely be back!

This little B&B was exactly what we needed when the weather was so horrendous in Brussels in January. It's very clean, very comfortable, and the owners are very welcoming. There are a lot of stairs, especially if you're staying on the top floor, but it's so worth it. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again.

Room Tip: I love the shower in room 3. And the amazing windows. It would be even more of a delight to stay her...

Stayed three nights. Sweet Brussels is located rather near the train station, probably 10 min walk and is rather easy to find. The surrounding area is not very touristy but I would deem it safe. The room that we stayed in was spacious (very spacious in fact) and very clean and homely. Sophie is a wonderful hostess and she is happy to share the best places for chocolates and where to visit the sights. Breakfast was delicious and the best part is, there is a coffee machine that is free of charge all day. In the afternoon whenever we went back to recharge, it felt great to get a drink from the coffee machine. A great B&B in Brussels!

Stayed three nights in July with my wife. This B&B was in a great location (5-10 min stroll to the center of the city or the nearest metro and 5-10 min walk to the train station). If you are looking for a good jumping off point for day trips to Bruges or Ghent then this is the spot. The area surrounding the B&B was not in the touristy section but it was very safe. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. There was a wonderful breakfast made to order every morning and a great coffee machine that was free of charge all day long! I doubt you could find a better B&B in Brussels!

Hey everyone. Could not recommend this to you. I'm from Britain and this was my first adventure to Brussels. They made me feel welcome from the off. I received maps, guidance and answered all my questions. She went through the best places for chocolates and it was only about a 10 minute walk max from the main Grande Place. I wasn't disturbed or bugged with my stay and she was there to answer questions and also at breakfast with a massive range of delights. The rooms are absolutely massive and a massive TV, bath, bed. It's worth every penny! You are near the railway line however with the window glazing you cannot hear the trains pass so don't be worried by this. It's 5 minutes away from the North station so if you come off the Eurostar it's literally by it! Great location. Please support this B&B as I've fell in love with it and everything it offers.

Sweet Brussels B&B is a beautifully restored townhouse with a wonderful hostess, Sophie. My wife and I, and our adult son stayed in 2 rooms for 5 nights. The B&B is in easy walking distance of Brussels South Train station. Maybe not the most attractive part of town but not threatening or uncomfortable and an easy walk to the center of the old town. The house itself was very comfortable. Spacious rooms, great beds, good breakfast, heat worked well, as did the wifi.
There is no lift, so keep that in mind when you book. My wife and I stayed in the first bedroom, one flight up. Our son stayed in a 2 story duplex 3 flights up. . Sophie spoke perfect English and was very helpful as we planned our days. The south train station, Brussels Midi or Zuid, has frequent trains to Bruges , Ghent, etc. so a good place to make day trips from. All in all a great choice for Brussels ( which we think is an underrated city). When we left for the airport, Sophie arranged for a taxi to pick us up at a prearranged price, very smooth.
