We stayed in this BnB for 4 days at the beginning of Feb, The place is large, extremely quiet and very private, we felt like we very much had our own Belgian apartment. The owners were friendly. It was a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station (which only take coins to buy tickets - and you can't put in more than 20 coins per transaction), and the metros were extremely regular. The apartment was fairly chilly despite the heating being on full - but the owners did say they had a slight problem with the boiler - and it was well within a decent temperature. The house itself is lovely, has loads of character and we felt we got the most of our trip from staying in a traditional Belgian house. Do not be put off by the two prisons within close proximity as we had no trouble whatsoever.
We could choose the time we wanted to take breakfast (8.30am) and this was always delivered at this time exactly. The breakfast was okay (bread, croissant, fresh squeezed oj) but could have used some variety since we were there for 4 days - excellent overall for the price.
