To begin with: Brussels is a very, very expensive city, and, like all cities it is very noisy. Chambres d'hotes Du Bois provides value, space, convenience, quiet, and helpful innkeepers. The location is just about 2 blocks from a tram stop on a line that goes near the Central Station. It is on a very quiet and green street with no traffic. It is in a historic building within easy walking distance from many art nouveau homes, and the Horta house/museum. Our room was very large with a wooden tiled floor, comfortable bed with view of the garden. Shower was a bit small but adequate. The kitchen was the surprise. Large and well-equipped, it provided a budget saving feature that allowed us to skip eating out several nights, and store a some items in the small refrigerator, full of beers, water, & sodas for reasonable fee. The price easily beats anything around the area for these features. OK, it is definitely "lived in" and could use a few touchups in places, but get real: you are getting all of the other features plus a very kind a helpful innkeeper-family for a very fair price. It never pretends to be the London Ritz, but if that is what you are wanting to pay for, dig deep into your pockets and go elsewhere. As for me, I WILL be back to the Chambres d'hotes Du Bois. Thank you, Mde. & Msr. Du Bois.
