“Great promise but no friendly touch”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

This is a great B&B in a central yet green area of Brussels around the lakes of IXelles. They kindly upgraded us to the suite to give our 8 year old enough space, but right from the beginning there was little welcome: we were struggling with dragging our bag onto the 5th floor ( no lift) and all we had instead of a helping hand was actually a snigger that we were out of breath!
Breakfast is in a lovely sitting room looking into the garden but the selection is far from what is described, no 'tartes de Francois' which we were looking forward so much, not even a friendly word, the lady overlooking breakfast barely said good morning and on the day of our departure was in such a hurry to get rid of us that she was scowling over our chatting and laughing, she then asked us to vacate the room by 11 ( this was really inconvenient to us) and to leave our luggage in a non supervised corridor. On top of this our beds were not made nor cleaning done during our 2 day stay.
Lovely premises so unfriendly managed, what a pity!

Room Tip: the suite on the top floor is a nice place, if your legs can cary you to the 5 floor with no help fr...

Beautifully decorated old town house with public transport next door. Comfortabel quiet room (I had a room at the garden side). My room had a separate private bathroom in the corridor. Excellent cold breakfast buffet. Very friendly staff. One free parking place and paid parking in the street.

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely bed and breakfast. The accommodations are lovely, beautifully decorated with everything you could need with quality linens and towels to toiletries and a blow dryer. Our room had a shared bathroom but we had the large bathroom all to ourselves during our stay. The dining room was exquisite with a wonderful breakfast buffet each morning. The breads and pastries were especially fresh and tasty. There is a bus stop for bus 71 directly across the street and more transportation options within a short walk. Flagey place with restaurants and shops is a short walk away. Villa Leopoldine is in a quiet, attractive residential area. Highly recommended!!
