FishMarket B&B
Ranked #13 of 212 Brussels B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Fish Market B & B is in the St Catherines district of Brussels with many fine restaurants near by. It is within walking distance of most anything you would like to do in central Brussels, and the metro is only a block away if you want to go further. Elisabeth the owner was a welcoming hostess, very friendly, and she cooked an excellent Scrambled Eggs and Bacon at my request. The B & B only has 2 rooms so you wont feel overcrowded and although neither room has a bathroom inside your room there is a bathroom just outside each room that is for your EXCLUSIVE use. Very charming 3 story home that you will love. Thank you Elisabeth for making us feel welcome.

This B&B is an stylish, artistically decorated house. The location close to St Catherines is great for walking around the old town and close to metro for trips further a field. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The host Elizabeth is really helpful. Breakfast is great and relaxed. There is a terrace which would be lovely in summer. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

If you want to stay in a good location in Brussels and are fed up with bland and boring hotels this would make a good choice. It is in St Catherine's, a pleasant area in easy walking distance from Grand Place. The design of the entrance and bedrooms reflect the artistic interests of the couple who run it. The breakfast is excellent - good variety and high quality. My only quibble was that the room was a little cold when we arrived (presumably an oversight, as the rest of the weekend was fine) and one of the rooms has no internal bathroom. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Bedroom on the right lets in some street-light. The WC for the bedroom on the left is in another roo...

Excellent localization, very nice decoration, quiet neighborhood. Very close of major atractions and of a subway station.
Spacious, clean and confortable room.
The breakfast is just marvellous.
Our hostess was much gentle and kind, and gave us good tips about the city.

A wonderful accommodation option that is within walking distance from the centre of Brussels. Our room was extremely spacious and the personal touches of styling were not missed. The breakfast was nothing short of delicious and plentiful! We would definitely return and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants something a little different for a city break.

The only down side would be the toilet in the hallway and down a small set of stairs, and in winter the middle of the night loo trip was a tad chilly because of the stone tiling and required some negotiation when half asleep. There was some noise from people moving about in the morning upstairs, but this is a original building and these things can't be helped. I really am nit picking here, but overall a wonderful place!!

This was a great BnB option in the St. Catherine neighborhood located two short tram stops from the central station. It is far enough away from the noise of the Grand Place, but within a 10 minute walk. We stayed for just a night. The room was large with a very large and comfortable bed. The shower was a tight shower located inside the room inside a wall door, but the toilet was a short walk down the hall and down 3 stairs just outside the room. This could be a negative at night with the lights off, because it was dark and it could be easy to stumble down the stairs if you were not careful. Elisabeth and her husband were helpful in orienting us to the city and in making restaurant reservations at a local eatery. The breakfast was more than ample with eggs cooked to order.

This is the perfect B&B if staying in Brussels. The room, service, and location at this B&B is wonderful. Elisabeth and her husband are the perfect hosts, and I appreciated the very high attention to detail in the entire experience: from the prompt replies to my initial emails and a very welcoming greeting, to the wonderful room and delicious breakfast. When we arrived we were shown our room, the breakfast room, the Brussels guides and maps available to us, and given recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. We stayed in Room 2, which has a shower and sink attached to the room, with a private WC for this room just outside the room itself, and there were cozy robes and a hair dryer provided. The B&B is located in the Ste Catherine area, which is very charming, very close to the metro and within walking distance of Grand Place, museums, and other tourist destinations. I would go back to Brussels just to stay here again.
