“Perfect B&B in the heart of Brussels”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We stayed a total of 7 nights at B&B X2Brussels. It is located downtown within an easy walking distance of the central train station. This made it a perfect spot for both sightseeing in the city and also for day trips to other Belgian cities.
Xavier and his mother Monique made us feel welcome and appreciated. They had maps and suggestions for sights and restaurants. We felt quite comfortable and safe. Breakfast was very convenient and cooked to order--be sure to try "le pain perdu."

Room Tip: The room on the top floor is great. It is spacious, airy, and quieter.

My husband and I booked X2Brussels for one night this July on a business trip and are so happy we did. We arrived late and Xavier was up waiting for us with a welcome drink and lots of information about where to have a light dinner. He not only gave us a great local restaurant recommendation but also told us his favorite regional specialties to try from the menu.

The location was perfect, we walked the streets after 10 pm with no problem and in moments found ourselves in the middle of the central square. We managed to see the iconic "peeing boy" fountain, have a delicious dinner and buy some Belgium chocolate, all before midnight.

Our room (one of three that they have) was spacious with high ceilings, a modern bathroom and a comfortable bed. The best part about the stay was meeting Xavier and his mother who run the B&B together. They obviously love to host traveler's in their home and it was a small and intimate experience with them. Great breakfast early the next morning and then Xavier called us a cab to the train station.

All in all, we really maximized our time in Brussels due to their caring attention and local knowledge. We will definitely go back when we have more time to visit the city and would stay at XRBrussels again in a heartbeat.

As a final touch of great service, Xavier shipped us some items we forgot in our room at no charge. Classy hosts, great hotel. If you are in Brussels for any length of time, this gem of a find is like having a friend's home to stay in while exploring the city!

THX for such positive and extensive comments for such a short stay. If this is proportional, you definitely need to come back at least for one week ;-). And if going to Mexico, promised, we will contact you. Warm regards, Xavier

We were welcomed by Xavier and he immediately sat us down with a map of Brussels and helped us plan our stay. He gave even gave us names of specific restaurants and bars to visit. Next, he showed us to the very spacious room. I think our apartment from Paris could fit in the bathroom.
Breakfast the next morning was wonderful. Made to order coffee and eggs, along with meat, cheese and fresh squeezed OJ. This B&B was just what we needed and we would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice and new family run hotel with a couple of rooms in the heart of Brussels. Monique and Xavier have treated us very well throughout our stay, including good conversations during the breakfast. We felt very comfortable in all aspects during our stay and we only have to thank them for their firendliness. The rooms are large, clean and silent, including an amazing bath with an unmatched size and beauty (uncomparable to other european hotels that we have stayed in out various trips to Europe). The location is also perfect, in the heart of Brussels and in a quiet street at the same time.
The only cons aspects to be highlighted is the lack of a lift (which may make things difficult for older travellers) and the lack of a restaurant (which of course can be resolved by several restaurants in a square a few meters away.
If you want to be away from unpersonal international hotels and feelin at home in a pleasant place, this is the hotel!

Thanks for taking the time to write this review, it's really appreciated. We are glad we could offer a quiet environment after the crowdy city center atmosphere. Indeed we do not offer all services that chain hotels can provide but we hope we make a difference with our little personal touch. Warm regards, Xavier

Went to Brussels with friends and my husband for a night in X2 Brussels. We were greeted by Xavier´s mom, she´s really friendly and gave us nice tips and a city map to explore Brussels. We could park our car in a garage, which was great. Really helped us, since we had a lot of luggage there. The B&B is beautiful, very very clean and modern. We stayed in the white room, 3rd floor. The bed was very confortable, the bathroom modern with some really nice touches. We felt at home. The next day we had a wonderful breakfast, scrambled eggs, fresh orange juice, nice selection of tea. I cannot speak highly enough... we had a really great time there. So if you plan to visit Brussels, stay at X2, you´ll not regret it. I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy the B&B.

Very cool tiny designer hotel in the heart of Brussels. It's the best of both worlds: 3-5 mins walking to Manneken Pis and city center and a quiet location for undisturbed sleep. Stayed in the 'white room' on the 3rd floor, huge with trendy minimalistic design, premium feel, superb bed. Monique made us welcome from minute 1, even though we arrived quite early. Friendly and useful advice on what to see, where to eat and how to get there, plus home-made, hotel-quality breakfast. Would definitely come back to check out the other rooms, too... ;-)

Room Tip: No elevator, so top floor with big suitcases could be tricky...

Xavier and his mum run an impeccable B&B in central Brussels. I would forget hotels all together if all B&Bs were even a fraction as good as X2Brussels. The rooms are huge, and very comfortable, giving you a sense of not being in paid accommodation, which is nice when travelling. Xavier was particularly helpful with mapping a one day tour of city for us, and willing to assist with any other requirements. Unfortunately we had to leave early the next morning and couldn't enjoy the breakfast (looked good, saw other guests enjoying it when we checked in). However we were sent on our way with packed breakfasts for the train.
