I selected this B&B based on recommendations. While the location is centric to staying for 4 is difficult.Second bed is only for young peoples, not if your back is bad. Have to climb 3 stairs up before you get to the room. Wifi is from a nearby hotel which could explain poor quality. Woken up at 7.00 by fights in... More

What a gem! This place was charming from minute one... We entered the residence through the restaurant and were promptly greeted by the wonderful owner of this perfectly located B&B. Check in was simple... He wasn't worried as much about us paying for the room... He wanted to make sure we liked the room and were comfortable. Customer service like... More

I choose this location based on other reviews and we were not disappointed at all. We were greeted by Louie. He was so kind. He helped us to our room on the second floor. I won't say anything else about the stairs because so many others have mentioned them. I will only say it was a gorgeous stairwell! Our room... More

We had stayed here two years ago and couldn’t wait to get back: it lived up to our fond memories. Still great rooms, delicious breakfasts, and a fine location, situated between the Beguinage and Ste.

We had a fantastic stay at Downtown Residence. The location really can't be topped. Although we were in the smallest of the 3 rooms, the very high ceilings made the room seem spacious. Bed and shower were great!

The owner of this guesthouse is a kind old man who will talk your ear off and charm you with his eccentricity. The rooms are decent, clean and comfortable to stay in.

A colleague and I stayed here for 1 night while in Brussels. I felt like I had found a long lost relative. This was great. Perhaps they had only 4 rooms and you may have to climb a steep spiral staircase to your room, but it is worth the effort. When I informed the owner that I needed to move... More
