I am sure the REAL Downtown Residence at Place du Samedi 15 is good. BUT I tried to book it using the Booking.Com button via TripAdvisor (as above) and ended up staying at ANOTHER DOWNTOWN RESIDENCE at 10 Rue de Laeken. SO I WAS CONNED. The other one is not very clean and it was very difficult to sleep at...

We were absolutely blown away by the hotel, restaurant and the owner!!! We couldn't have found a better place to stay. The restaurant is cozy and the food wonderful, the owner treats you like family and takes the time to get to know you. Where else can you have a breakfast of FRESH warm croissants, ham, cheese and fresh fruits....

If you want a delicious dinner and an interesting conversation you should try B&B Downtown Residence in Brussels. The food it’s simply a symphony of good taste and the owner is an excellent host. We were very lucky to find this restaurant but now we will be their customer every time we will come to Brussels. Everything will exceed your...

I have a very short review to write here—if you come to Brussels and stay anywhere else, you’ve missed an excellent opportunity to enjoy a small, well run hotel. The staff was extremely helpful, the room was comfortable and the location is ideal. Oh, and breakfast—simply delicious! I cannot wait for my next visit.

Despite trying to book during Brussels' annual seafood expo, we were delighted to stay and dine at this perfect downtown B&B. The location is convenient to the de Brouckere subway stop and the Grand Palace. The Downtown Residence has three rooms located above Restaurant Sainte-Catherine. Our 2nd floor suite had a large comfortable bed, ensuite shower and toilet, and a...

On a short business trip to Brussels, I dined several times over two days at the restaurant attached to the Downtown Residence. I am not surprised by the terrific reviews of those who have stayed in the B&B, only a bit envious, as I was unfortunate enough to have landed in the hotel opposite as part of a SAS package...

We booked based on price and availability, but this place turned out to be true gem! Location was very convenient to the train as well as the La Grand Place. We stayed on the second floor which had a separate sleeping and living room. The bed was very comfortable and I loved the huge windows and exposed beams: modern and...

After a bad experience with Air BNB (Our host Maximiliian deceived us about the location and state of the lodging, so I advise much caution with Air BNB.), we needed to find a place to stay fast. We wanted to stay in the St Catherine area of the Brussels lower town. Luckily for us, we noticed the Downtown Residence as...

Convenient to the Brussels underground, walking distance to the Grand-Place and most places of interest, and very close to Ste. Catherine’s church, the Beguinage, and the open area that was once the fish market. One underground stop to the Brussels Central train station and only four stops to Brussels Midi. There are three rooms, one on each of three floors...
