“fantastic, clean place”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't be much happier. Marc & Fons are great. The place is in the middle of everything. Just a few minutes walk from the central train station. Taxis from central station won't go there (but they will from Midi station), it's a bit tricky to find but ask around and people will point you in the right direction.

At night it's chaos outside since there are bars and clubs next door, but once you go in the building you can't hear a thing. super clean rooms and bathrooms, slept like a baby, soap and towels are provided. Very modern, ikea-like decorations. Free wifi, tv in rooms.

They say breakfast isn't included, but it sort of is. Everything in the kitchen/lounge is complimentary, such as cereals, yogurt, bread and juices.

I booked through booking.com but I believe if you email marc or fonz directly you might get a better rate.

I can't recommend this place enough. There are only 3 rooms I believe, so book fast!

My husband and I stayed for three nights wish it were longer. Hotel is located to major tourist attractions. The place is halfway between a house and hotel. There are various bars and cafes nearby. Rooms are contemporary. Marc and Fonz were very helpful from the first contact via email right to our check out. There is a small common area where there are bottles of water, juices, cereals and yoghurts. The only slight problem is the bed mattress is abit of a softer side but that is easy fix. Anyway we are always out from morning exploring and only returned late evening to sleep. I will definitely book here again if we ever go back to Brussels. Keep up the good work Marc & Fonz!!

This hotel is located at a very good location, right at the center. Easy to get around! On to of that, room is very clean, high ceiling, free wifi, big bathroom, comfy bed and a simple kitchen. At the hotel common area provides free breakfast, coffee, water, yogurt and so on! Book it directly with the hotel may get a better rate!! If booking.com appear to be fully book, call hotel directly. It had an extra room!

This place is ideally located in Brussels. Right by all the exciting bars and clubs, but slightly tucked away so that you aren't bothered by drunks in the street while you sleep.

This was our first stop on our trip to Europe. As with all international travel, flight delays, etc. happen. We got in much later than we'd planned (about 12:30 AM) and Foz didn't seem bothered about having to stay up late to give us the keys. He sat happily at a small bar 2 doors down. Foz was friendly and helpful every day we were there. Gave us tips on where to eat that weren't too touristy, etc. Very gracious host. He speaks fine English, but loves speaking spanish when given the chance.

As for the accommodations, the place is halfway between a house and hotel. The rooms are all different in decour and different sizes. All very clean and contemporary with the old architecture of the house attributing to some strange room layouts.

There is a small common area where there are small pastries, bottles of water, iced coffees, and juices. There is also a small espresso machine which is quite good. You'll be very glad to start your day here w/a sip of espresso. You'll also be happy to end your night of drinking belgian beer here with a bottle of water. Very nice touch to keep patrons comfortable and happy.

Location is good. BXL somehow found a spot that is right in the middle of various clubs and beer bars, but off just enough to keep night quiet. You'll hear more from your neighbors in other BXL rooms than you will the drunks on the street. It is also conveniently located for a short walk to the tourist sites -- le mannequin pis, etc. I can't rave enough about the location.

If we ever go back to Brussels, I will definitely book here again.

Room Tip: Room selection is limited and they have only one large room for groups of more than 4 so call way ah...

You will probably walk past it a couple of times but as is so often the case in Brussels, the best things happen once you get past the facade. A discreet B&B hideaway in the middle of town and so much is within walking distance: bars, shops, restaurants and clubs. The room we stayed in was large and had a very comfortable double bed, the lighting is well thought out too and you could have a cozy dimmed look or a reading light above your head which meant that you could do just that: read! The bathroom and separate WC are small but stylish and spotlessly clean but what amazed us both the most was just how quiet it was there, what a haven of peace from the busy hubbub of the city just meters away! The breakfast is simple but enough to get you going for the day and so all in all a great little place to stay, so needless to say it is often full...

Room Tip: Check out the photos on the website, each room is different.

What an excellent find. Booked this some months ago from a trusted travel provider but didn't really do too much research before doing so.

Cannot recommended highly enough. The rooms are private, contemporary and comfortable. Location absolutely perfect (which was hard to believe when walking from Brussels midi/zuid station - not the best) and staff, although contact limited, very friendly and welcoming. Given the relative low cost of this unique base, I'd find it very difficult to even contemplate staying elsewhere in brussels

Wasn't sure what it would be like from the outside but what a delightful place to stay. Fonz was most welcoming, very friendly and helpful for ideas for places to visit.
Small dining area where you could help yourself to drinks and also had a lot of literature on Brussels.
Located only a 3 minute walk from Grand Place and lots of restaurants close by. If I am ever going through Brussels again then I will definitely stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
DEAR GUESTS, I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT, THIS Dear guests, I just want to point out, this is a non-breakfast guesthouse. I have stopped providing surprise breakfast, since the last quarter of 2015 year. It was supposed to be a surprise when guests arrival. Reservation from other sites are never provides any meal plan. Except, if they book direct with me. Many guests read the reviews here in Tripadvisor but went booking via other sites then with me, I can imagine, it can be very misleading or confusing to many other guests who read it. Nevertheless, when guests are making a reservation via other sites, it stated very clearly, there are no meal included in the Dear guest, to clear the misunderstanding, please don’t take it personal on yourself. The truth is, we just stop giving surprise service breakfast that’s all. “one must not count the amount of food he/she expect to gets but instead? have a sense of gratitude and be thankful that, it was indeed little but little extra bonus. ********************************************************** We have converted this old former medal making workshop factory into a Loft-style Garden Suite, a Garden Room and a Panoramic Room. If you want a great nights sleep, yet want to be in the heart of Brussels, then BXLROOM is the place to be !!! BXLROOM features modern decor with industrial touches and an intimate garden. All of the accommodation at BXLROOM benefits from a flat-screen cable TV, DVD player, tea/coffee facility, free WIFI, ensuite shower and toilet. BXLROOM is just 180 metres from The Manneken Pis Statue, 280 meters from Grand-Place and from there 750 meters to The Magritte Museum, BXLROOM is short pleasant walk from BRUSSEL-CENTRAAL/BRUXELLES-CENTRAL train station. Which is one stop from BRUSSEL-ZUID/BRUXELLES-MIDI International Rail Station, ( Eurostar, Thalys, ICE and TGV Terminals ) ********************************************************** ... more   less
