Bed and Breakfast Taptoe

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We stayed here the first 2 nights of our vacation, and were very pleased. Daniel and Catherine were very welcoming and helpful. The housekeeper had left the window open, so the room was cold when we arrived. Within 10 minutes Daniel returned with a very effective space heater which quickly resolved the issue. The Bolero Room was spacious and comfortable. Free wi-fi, make your own breakfast when you want, and eat in your room if you want. 5 minute walk to Grand Place and lots of restaurants (Neutnigenough and Chez Patrick both quite nice.) and a little square 1 minute away. The bar right next to the gallery had great cherry kriek beer for a late evening treat. We absolutely recommend B&B Taptoe!

Room Tip: Large Bolero Room has the most space, but a little bit of street noise. Not a very busy street, so n...

A very autonomous way to have a "b&b" experience. You are given the materials to prepare your own breakfast in a shared kitchen, or other meals if you'd like, and the keys to the building. I loved the old world feel of the rooms, each with a skeleton key lock, and the sublime location. You feel less like a tourist as you walk down the cobbled street toward the building where your room is located. Quite close to a few restaurants and bars, but BE WARNED! The only thing Belgians do after 8 is drink, so stock up on snacks or eat early. :)

One of the best bed and breakfast experiences I've had. Situated a few hundred metres from the Manneken Pis and the Grand Place. It's essentially a flat located a few metres from the Galerie Taptoe, each of the themed rooms has it's own bathroom and you share the self service kitchen with the other guests. Breakfast is brought in fresh each day with more than enough to satisfy the heartiest appetites.
We stayed in the Mme Butterfly room which was very tastefully decorated in pink and green.
Our hosts Daniel and Catherine were lovely and made us feel very welcome in their accomodation. It really was like being home from home.

I stay there with my boyfriend after reading all the good reviews. The B&B is really nice located. The owner ( catherine) was helpful. But I think that is not a place for younger couples. The room is located in an apartment that lives a man. And u can listen at moorning the people talking, eating....
If u want privacy... Stay in other place. But if you are not in a "romantic escape" thats will be Perfect!

We stayed several times in taptoe b/b and every time we are enchanted by the place. We prefer the bolero room which is quite big with a fantastic wallpainting and a small yet dramatic bathroom. It's location is superb and Daniel and Catherine are always there to help us make our stay wonderful. They are warm welcoming yet non intrusive. It is one of the best places I've ever stayed in. If there is still a room available, don't think twice... BOOK NOW !

We arrived to Brussels on Saturday July 23rd and stayed until the 26th. Daniel & Catherine were extremely nice and provided very comfortable, clean, and efficient lodging. The apartment is just a short walk from Catherine's art studio/gallery. The B&B has three bedrooms total and a fully equipped kitchen. Daniel brings fresh bread from a local bakery and provides milk, eggs, ham, cheese, OJ, jams/jellys, butter, and other spreads for breakfast. It's wonderful. You get the feeling of actually living there rather than visiting. The Manneken Pis is just a block away and the Grand Place is a 5 minute walk. It's close to the subway system, so you can get anywhere quite quickly. Would definitely stay here again!
