We found Downtown BXL through Tripadvisor and our fellow reviewers didn't let us down. Our two-night stay there was fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Downtown BXL (or its sister property Casa BXL that is right next door). The rooms are generously sized, exceptionally clean and decorated in a modern / trendy manner. Because the inn is so small...

He gave us good tips (we loved Kokob restaurant -Ethiopian food- and Moeder Lambic -typical Belgian beers). We can only recommend Downtown-Bxl (even if we should better keep this...

The B&B is very well located, walking distance to every place of interest for any tourist. I had the room in the first floor. If you hate to find yourself hollidaying in a kind of poor place (decor, helping staff, furniture, neighborhood, whatever) go to this B&B. They have taste, know how to make you feel attended without being around...

Great wee place overall. Right in the heart of the gay district. Had the zebra room. Good value for the price. Lots of narrow stairs but you expect this in this part of the world in the old houses. Friendly manager. One major annoyance was breakfast- must have a second b&B eat here as well as the table was full...

We stayed in room 4 on the top floor. The room was spacious and comfortable. The shower was a little small but adequate. There was a short wardrobe (no room for ballgowns here) that had a safe embedded in the wall at the back. Rather oddly, there was a separate sink behind another door in the room which they could...

I stayed at the Downtown BXL for 4 nights, the room was nice (room 1) with a round bed, chairs, a sofa and tv the only bad thing about the room was that the shower was very small even for me and I'm a very small person! Breakfast was OK nothing spectacular, Bread, waffles, ham, cheese, yogurt, oj, tea, cereal....

I stayed in a small room that had no room number that I booked as a single. The room was small but beautifully decorated and cleverly arranged for maximum space and comfort.
