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. Catherine churches, a short distance to the DeBrouckere Metro stop (one line to the Brussels Midi train station), and walking distance to the Grand Place, the Cathedral, the Brussels Central train station, and innumerable other attractions.
The ground floor is the Restaurant Ste. Catherine (reviewed separately), which simplified our dinner decisions for many nights. Breakfast time is flexible; but especially if you’re the only ones staying there, you may get on the proprietor’s good side by arranging for it on the late side—don’t be afraid to ask.
Although (luckily so far) not an issue for us, be advised that the three rooms are up some fairly steep stairs, just as you might also find in Amsterdam. (One of the proprietor’s able assistants, female or male, can help you with your luggage—they’re good at it.) We nonetheless love this informal place, so please don’t stay here when we want to: frankly, I’d be happy to be climbing those stairs right now.More
