It was my first visit to Zaventem in a long time and so trusted Trip Advisor to find me somewhere to stay. It did not disappoint me Barbara’s B&B is one of the nicest places I have stayed in for a while and Barbara is the most charming and wonderful host. On arrival I was warmly greeted and shown to my room which was stunning, a large room with a large en suite. Warm and cosy. I was instructed to make myself at home and given details of where to get refreshments that were included. I showered before heading 5 mins walk to the Main Street where I found a cosy cafe bar which was very welcoming and a light bite to eat. I arrived home, did some work, and then had a fantastic nights sleep. The morning shower was equally as hot, with plenty of water. Breakfast was great, with all options available including cooked eggs, ham, cheeses, fruits, breads, salads, cereal, sweet treats.. I could go on. I got one bus from the airport (830) for €3 and it was very easy to find in a lovely neighbourhood. If in Brussels, and you’re happy not to be right in the centre and get the home comforts this brings (without the price tag), I would 100% recommend Barbara’s B&B. Thank you Barbara for making me feel very welcome.

Really clean and comfortable and a great welcome from the host, Barbara. Great recommendations for eating out nearby.I really appreciated the advice for getting to the airport in the morning so as to avoid the traffic. Brilliant! I've stayed in Brussels before and used the airport hotels and have always found them to be overpriced and not very pleasant to stay in. This place is so convenient for the airport and a much better experience. I cant recommend this place any higher. Perfect. I'll be back!!

We spent our last night in Europe at Barbara’s B&B. We absolutely made the right decision. Close to the airport, sparkling clean accommodations, comfortable seating, well lite for reading or relaxing. And, most import, a wonderful host in Barbara. She was extremely accommodating and fulfilled our every need---she has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. We rank this in the top 2 percent of all B&Bs we have stayed in!

It has been an absolute pleasure to stay at Barbaras. Wonderful place, very clean and modern and Barbara herself, the perfect hostess. I can highly recommend Barbaras to everyone. Breakfast is served at the table, there is is fridge with cold beverages avaiable, and a nice cozy garden.

As a frequent traveler and visitor to B&Bs I was delighted when I arrived at Barbara's Bed & Breakfast. Though the description on line is certainly accurate, it really does not describe how wonderful the property is when one actually sees it. It was exceptionally maintained and appointed in every way, the best I have seen in my travels. Let me start with the proprietor Barbara. Barbara spent much of her career as a banker until she decided to fulfill a long-time dream of owning a B&B. She is a gracious host, extremely knowledgeable about all things Belgium and a wonderful cook. I thoroughly enjoyed my conversations with her each morning of my 9 day stay. Note that if you want privacy, Barbara will not intrude on your time. However, she always inquired if I would like breakfast conversation and I was happy to chat with her daily. Breakfasts were terrific year. Each day she inquired what I would like for breakfast. She prepared eggs to order each morning and fresh squeezed juices each day. The fruit in the juices varied day by day but always included oranges, and other wonderful additions to the juice. A variety of breakfast meats including ham, salami and more were always present. Each morning I also had croissants, baguettes and other fresh breads to choose from and a fresh fruit salad that varied from day to day with apples, oranges, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi or whatever else was fresh and available. She has served me fresh mint tea and yogurt. The quantity of food at breakfast could easily have sustained me for the entire day though I naturally chose to taste the wonderful things to eat in Belgium too. I had Room Number 3. All of the rooms were recently finished and decorated in a calming sophisticated manner. My bed was wonderfully comfortable with high end bedding. In particular I loved the very light weight down comforter that always kept me at a perfect body temperature. My room had a skylight and air conditioning as well. I also had a desk in a writing area and a marvelous bathroom with a wonderful rain shower head as well as a hand shower wand. High-end toiletries were provided along with super plush towels. I could not ask for more at the end of a long day of sightseeing. My room looked out over a large garden complete with fruit trees, grape vines, flowers and many other types of plantings. The garden was wonderfully designed and maintained and there were seating areas for guests who wished to spend time in the garden. I had a chance to tour the other guest rooms all of which are equally well decorated . Each room is a bit different from the others so there is a variation based upon guest wishes and availability. The common area included comfortable chairs and a television again nicely appointed. I chose this B&B because of its location. It is located in a charming village a short bus, car or train ride from the heart of Brussels and conveniently located from the airport. The village has a number of restaurants (I only had the chance to eat in the Indian cuisine one which was terrific), supermarkets, a butcher shop, bakeries and of course chocolate shops. I explored the village several times. I spent time some days in Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, Leuven, and traveling the countryside. Barbara’s Bed and Breakfast provided a perfect place to serve as my home base for my travels. There is so much more to see in Belgium than I expected. I plan to make another trip to continue exploring the country. When I do I will again make Barbara’s Bed and Breakfast my home base! As you ready my words you may be thinking that it is just too good to be true. I strongly encourage you to check it out and am sure you too will be pleased.
