Be&Be Louise
Ranked #16 of 19 Ixelles B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 February 2014

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to our stay at Be & Be however on arrival the first thing we noticed was a sewage like smell to the room. Whilst the room is a good size and the bathroom is lovely the hairdryer in the bedroom didn't work nor did the socket, leaving us with only one socket between two which wasn't enough. The double room isn't a double room but two beds pushed together, which would have been fine if they could at least provided a double duvet, they did not. The breakfast is very much first come first serve ie get up late and there is nothing left. There was cereal provided but no milk with which to accompany it and the yoghurt that was promised was nowhere to be found. Sadly one to avoid!

Well, it's economical and clean but be prepared for having no one at the desk
to help with problems with the TV or questions about transit or anything. The
breakfast is modest but adequate. We were on the 3rd floor with no lift and
the stair was winding and steep. Like I said, it was inexpensive in a VERY
expensive city so it's adequate but no much more. Oh..I almost forgot -
the toilet is in the open - in other words, it's not separately enclosed.
It's just out there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the lower floor.

This is the kind of place that only looks good on a photo.

I've stayed here with two colleagues and we all had a horrible night. The room's are horribly decorated and hardly have any windows. I had the brown room, which made the room feel dark and small, but I felt blessed that I didn't have the red one, which looked like an old bordello. All three of the rooms were quite noisy and you could feel the tram passing by. The twin beds were very small and had synthetic blankets of the cheapest kind (which make you break out in a sweat at the middle of the night). I slept so bad that I called the Sheraton at the other side of the street in the middle of the night to ask if they had a room. Unfortunately they didn't. The bathroom was very big, but didn't have a thing to hang the shower head, which doesn't make for a pleasant shower. Breakfast is a 5 euro coupon, to be spend at the grocery next door. I skipped it. There's no staff, but that seems to be part of their concept.

If you get this room for under a hundred euro's, are an easy sleeper and not bothered by the unsettling decoration, this place could be for you. For the rest of us: Stay away!

Dear Sir,

Please note that since your comment we have changed different things:
- Breakfast is now fully served in the Be & Be
- Windows have been changed to double glazed windows to ensure the comfort of our guest.

I would like to thank you about the comment you have left and I deeply regret that the Be&Be did not correspond to your expectations.

Kind of an innovative concept you found with Emi's room, which as recently changed managment. Only online booking, no services, but all you need.
Once you key in your entrance code, you enter into a very nice townhouse, extremely well located in the heart of brussels.
Only 3 rooms, for this boutique bed & breakfast, with all the confort. Nicely decorated, good bed, great bathrooms. On top of that you get satelite TV, Internet, and great breakfast choice as you get a 5 eur/per person coupon for the next door shop. In the dining room you have free Nespresso, choice of high-end teas, milk, sodas, chocolate, and jam, with no extra charge.
But the best is the discretion. Here, you won't be bother by staff. Great for escapade!
A must see and experience.

Room Tip: For couples, go for the red room
