“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

This is a great, small B&B in SW Brussels. I stayed for 8 days and have all the same comments as those who recently stayed there. Superb room, simple, great shower, and very easy access. Breakfast is very nice and many mornings it was just Brigitte and I talking over fresh bread and pastries, cereal, coffee, orange juice, yogurt and off course coffee. It was very refreshing finding out all the nice things to do and the conversations made my morning. It is right around the corner from a bus stop or just up the hill from the tram that serves the entire city. Parking in the city is harder but if you are patient, it can be done. I would certainly stay there again and since my daughter now lives just down the hill in Uccle, I most likely will. A very good value for money that cannot be beat. The room I had was towards the back of the house and was very very quiet, something that you don't get everywhere.

My wife and I stayed at this B&B in the first week of Oct 2012. Brigitte was a wonderful host. She welcomed us warmly, gave us some touristy recommendations, and always joined us at the table while we were having breakfast. Alain was very helpful as well. He gladly helped us finding some other information we needed on the intranet.
The breakfast serving at this B&B was a complete one, comprising various kinds of bread, cheese, jam, orange juice, and tea or chocolate.
We stayed in a room on the uppermost level of the house. The room was nice, clean, warm, and comfortable. They provided an electric kettle in our room so that we can serve ourselves hot tea (or instant cup noodle, like we did) whenever we like to. We also admire the interior design of the house.
Finding the location of this B&B, however, can be tricky. It was located at one end of the Rue Joseph Bens street, which was very close with bus no. 48 stop (‘Forestoise’). Guests who will come here relying on Google maps advice on finding the route/direction may want to choose getting there by that bus instead of by tram since the tram stop is located at the other end of the street. It’d be a 10-minute walk from the tram stop to the B&B, and it maybe longer for travelers bringing heavy luggage. In terms of location, this B&B may not be the best but everything else was just excellent.

The hosts were kind, welcoming and extremely helpful with general info and navigation.
Breakfast is provided. Both English and French is spoken (don't know about any other languages).
The bedroom was exactly the same as in the picture, was cleaned daily, comfortable, had all necessary facilities, a top-notch shower, and even had a kettle and tea!!! (Very important for English travellers!)
The house is also in a great location, as it is near a petrol pump, a supermarket (Carrefour), several cafés and restaurants within walking distance, and two different tram lines, both leading to the city centre.
Cannot recommend enough. Simple, comfortable, really good value for money, couldn't have asked for better.

Very warm and nicely decorated, this place is just all you ever need and want for a great holiday in Brussels. Our room was very modern, spacious and so spotlessly clean and pleasant - it left nothing for want. We particularly loved the bathroom - it was clean, the shower pressure was excellent and the best part was the very unique and innovative opening on the ceiling that lets natural light in, without compromising on privacy.

Brigitte is a dream host - very warm, friendly and helpful. Breakfast, though simple, is the yummiest ones we ever had in a B&B, comprising of a variety of bread, cold meat, yoghurt, cheese, orange juice and of course all the Belgian necessities, such as hot chocolate drinks, chocolate spread and Speculoos (one of the many Belgian food wonders).

The location of this place is great. There is bus stop right outside, so it was very easy to get around, with just one bus ride away to the city centre. There was also a supermarket nearby for all the last minute chocolate shopping.

We loved this place and would recommend this to anyone planning a holiday in Brussels!
