A Cote du Cinquantenaire
Ranked #3 of 9 Etterbeek B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 26, 2013

I spent one night in this Bed & Breakfast and I enjoyed it very much. It is located quite conveniently close to Rond-point Schuman (EU neighbourhood), which means it is very well connected by bus, metro and train. The street where the B&B is situated in is very calm and allows for a good rest at night. The place is new, clean and aesthetically pleasant, with a very nice view to the interior garden. The room, with the bathroom included, are quite spacious, well equipped and very clean. The bed is very comfortable and cosy. There is free wi-fi which is very convenient. The breakfast is fresh and with a great variety of possibilities to choose from. The owner, Laurent, is a great host and makes the stay even more enjoyable. He is very service-orientated and attentive to details, all to make you feel as much welcomed as possible. I would recommend this excellent place in a heartbeat to anyone that is looking for an affordable, quiet and comfortable stay in Brussels.

Room Tip: I would recommend any of the rooms facing the garden. With the night illumination the garden is a ni...

The B&B is located on a quiet street, walk-able distance to Schuman station. I had to walk to the B&B alone from Schuman one night around 11:30pm and found the surrounding area to be quite safe. The breakfast is fresh and has good varieties. The owner, Laurent, offered us warm croissant, freshly boiled egg, pancakes and freshly squeezed orange juice on top of the regular selections of cereals, cold cuts and etc. The room is clean, the washroom is brand new. on the first night, I had problems with mosquito in the room (yes, in late October), I mentioned it to Laurent and the next day he installed mosquito repellent. I would recommend this place for anyone that prefers a quiet and comfortable stay in the city.

We lived in Brussels for three years close to this B&B. We stayed there for a couple of nights before moving back to the UK. It was spotlessly clean, everything worked, the rooms are contemporary and uncluttered and the breakfasts are excellent. The owner takes a real pride in providing a great service.
An excellent choice if you are on a business trip, or a city break holiday. Plenty of neighbourhood restaurants in walking distance, and if you want some exercise, the Cinquantenaire park is on your doorstep. Merode metro station is 3 minutes walk away - so easy to get into the city. Tram lines also from Merode...and it is also easy to go out of town towards Tervuren...with nice walking, forest walks and other parks.

Compare the price of this B&B to say, the Montgomery hotel nearby. We have stayed at both...and this wins hands down.

It is on a quiet road...so noise isn't a problem.

I had a brief stay at this B&B while on business and felt immediately at home. It is conveniently located in terms of access to public transport, restaurants and parks - all within a short,safe walk. The street is quiet (no traffic noise) and the house itself is also very quiet, ensuring a good quality of sleep. The rooms are very clean and modern. I regret not bringing my running gear as the Cinquantenaire park is so close (and apparently a favourite place for a morning or evening jog by locals). The host of the B&B is very pleasant, both when welcoming guests and making breakfast (fresh squeezed orange juice and cooked eggs are nice personal touches).

This small but spacious B&B is a nice if not unique exception to Brussels overprized mediocre quality hotels. With its cosy feel it is also a very pleasant alternative to soulless business hotels while still offering a professional and business class service. The owner goes out of his way to accommodate any wish you might have - he prepared earlier breakfast for me because I had a morning appointment. Breakfast comes with soft boiled egg, fresh orange juice, fresh warm croissants, fantastic bread, a variety of spreads and jams, different cheeses, smoked salmon, ham, fresh fruit and yoghurt. Coffee and tea making facilities are available free of charge 24/7.
I had the ground floor room next to the breakfast room but never heard a thing in the morning. It was nice to open the door and be served breakfast - this gives the place a very personal touch without being intrusive. There is a small library with a good selection of books as well as tourist information and free maps.
Rooms seem to be cleaned very thoroughly, again exceptional to many even mainstream business hotels in Brussels. All of this is 10 minutes walk to Schuman, so extremely convenient for the EU institutions.
The fact that there is no 24-hour receptionis no issue at all because the owner can be reached by a phone available in the breakfast room.
This will be my one and only choice for my next visits to Brussels.

A very quite and well design. The B&B is very close to the center.
It is very clean with absolutely new room and bath.
The breakfast is very nice and especially I liked the coffee machine.
Laurent was very helpful with answering questions and providing maps.

Even though the pictures on the website were already nice, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and size of the room. It was clean and I really liked the designer furniture too.

The location is very good, approx. 10 minutes walking from Schuman.

The breakfast was high quality and with a good choice of items, made even better with freshly pressed orange juice and a boiled egg served by Mr. Scholtus personally. Overall, the service was excellent.

I would definitely recommend this B&B to colleagues and friends.
