We had a bad time in the B&B. There was only cold water in the shower. The breakfast was in a cafe at the other site of the road and we get only a croissant and a glas af orange juice. The bottle of bubbles was warm and their was a lot of noise in the B&B. We had a...

Spacious and bright rooms. I loved having a walk-in-closet and a terrace. The "beds" we got were like mattresses on the floor but they looked cool and they were VERY comfortable. The atmosphere is very relaxed, and the breakfast was specially nice: guests come to the house's living-dining room and eat together sharing tables and sofas. The pancakes made at...

Bed-and-breakfast Longue Vie in Brussels was probably one of the most charming places we stayed, and of course came back! The owner and his Italian "lady of the house" are lovely people: attentive with much feeling for privacy. The rooms we had were absolutely spacious, beautifully decorated, very private and offered as a very intimate atmosphere.

The firs impression was not so positive due to the strange impact of this city. The location is good, the african quarter it's not really the best but it is close to Metro station and not far to the centre also by walking! The africaans style and ethnic design give to this b&b a very nice place to stay. Also...

As a solo traveler, this was my first time in Brussels. With many other hotel options, I chose to stay at this B&B considering my travel time and budget especially since I went for New Years. However my stay was as cold and rigid as the weather. I stayed in the African room. I must share that the room was...

The overall feel from the B&B is pretty good and I can see how it got such good reviews previously - the house is very nicely decorated and the owners are very nice and helpful, making the place feel like home. But a few issues are to flag: The isolation of the house is simply AWFUL – we could hear...

My husband, Mother and I stayed at B&B for two nights. We had a studio with a loft bed and bed in the main area. There was a small kitchen, washer and dryer and balcony overlooking the main house. The room was clean and spacious, the bathroom was small and the shower even smaller but average by European standards. There...

This is more like an upmarket hostel, which would be fine however you risk your neck getting there! Brussels is huge and the location geographically is relatively central, just off a busy high street shopping district. However one step off you will see local drug dealers, dont make eye contact! Walk a bit faster and locate the iron door with...

OK I won't pretend, this place is easy to find! Brussels with it's winding, one way street can be confussing to drive in and it can be easy to get disoriented. Having said this, once we found the pay parking lot everything got a lot easier! Once you've found the entrance your invited in to this tranquil world, relax, bohemian...

On turning up, we nearly walked away as the exterior is so unbelievably unprepossessing - and we are a bit fussy! Also, there was no real indication that it was a B&B. The staff are pleasant and helpful but somewhat distracted. The room was good, very quiet, big enough, but neither of us really liked the bath in the middle...
