Hotel Be Manos, BW Premier Collection
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Anderlecht
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2012

This hotel is really quirky and fun. Some modern boutique hotels I've stayed at in the past haven't quite managed to 'pull it off', and end up just looking a little cheap. Be Manos is modern, clean and fun with an unusual twist. The rooms are clean and comfortable with lovely bathrooms. The restaurant was very good, although rather expensive. The staff were exceptionally nice and helpful when we had questions about the area. On site parking was very secure.

The one downside to this hotel was the area. It is quite a walk from the centre of town, and we didn't feel entirely safe on the way. I'd definitely recommend getting a taxi if you're coming back late at night. Otherwise, very impressed!

The Be Manos team thank you very much for writing such a nice comment about our hotel.

We are delighted to hear that you were happily satisfied with your stay, our staff strives to provide the best service and we promise to maintain and continuously improve our standards of the hotel.

The Be Manos, an independent and family runned boutique hotel have been thought in an aesthetic way, and is furnished with one of a kind designed pieces.
Indeed you can find for instance, for each floor of the hotel “Apple holders” designed by Michael Le Bihain, which bring some conviviality and permit guests to get fresh apples whenever they want.

Regarding our location, please note that we are situated in function to begin many interesting touristic walks throughout Brussels and we stay very accessible with public transportation and we offer as well a free shuttle service in between the Midi train station and our hotel.

We truly hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back for your next visit in Brussels and to have the opportunity to deliver you a memorable hospitality experience.


Warmest Regards.

If you want to have a great weekend in Brussels with your partner: Go there. If you have to go to Brussels on a business trip and think you have deserved some special place designed by people who knew what they are doing: Go there.

The Be Manos is a hotel that is refreshingly different from the standard hotel. Clearly, the makers were obsessed with the design of the interior. And while it may not be to everybody's taste (it is quite dark) there is no denying the technically, they did a great job. The hotel rooms are simply remarkable. I spent two days there preparing for a presentation and enjoyed the fabulous room that have me space to think and breathe. It was like my own little nicely designed flat.

The restaurant is also very good, but really pricy.

PS: I should also say that when I was there, nothing really worked, like the reservation was wrong and there was no room key at all, so somebody had to let me in each time. Still, the staff handled these problems in a very professional, nice and quiet way.

We just returned from this hotel with the nicest memories, everything about our stay was just perfect. Reception employees were helpful and very friendly, on arrival we were warmly welcomed and given maps with directions from the hotel to local attractions.
Hotel bar is perfect for an afternoon drink and offers pleasant outdoor area in a warmer time of the year. We visited hotel bar several times before going out and after nights out. The bar man who regularly serves customers is very knowledgeable, friendly and professional will make you feel relaxed and at ease after long day of sightseeing.
Rooms are very stylish and comfortable ( we staid in a executive room ) with lovely bathrooms and furniture pieces. We liked the black and white color scheme in the room, king size bed and luxury beading and towels.
Housekeepers kept our room spotlessly clean and very tidy, those little things do make a huge difference for someone who is coming for a longer stay.
I will definitely recommend this hotel for couples on romantic breaks, especially with Eurostar deal. We think it was perfect value for money and would love to return there in the not so distant future.

Dear guest,

We are very pleased to learn that you were happy with your stay in our hotel.
A huge thank you for writing such a review about the Be Manos. It is a great pleasure to read positive reviews and encourage our team to keep up their efforts and maintain the level of quality of service.
The location has been strategically chosen regarding the Eurostar/Thalys stop, and thanks to our free shuttle going from/to the Midi Station.
As for the design, it has been deeply thought to offer a chic and cosy atmosphere, and the furniture has been designed especially for the Be Manos by designers.

We would be very glad to welcome you again in our boutique-hotel.
Best Regards.

My husband and I travelled to Brussels with our 2 yr old.
This being our first time in Brussels, I would say that the drive to the hotel was getting me a bit nervous as we seemlingly had to go through more and more neglected neighborhoods to get to the hotel.

Inside the hotel however we were greeted warmly by the staff who asked about our long-haul flight. We arrived hours before check-in time but the staff made a way for us to have our room early so that we could immediately shower and get some rest.

Breakfast was very nice. Limited selection but very well curated. High quality breads, yogurts, deli meats, cheeses and different kinds of honey. Restaurant for lunch was also beautiful albeit on the pricey side. Downside is that there are no easily accessible food places around the hotel.

Walking distance to the Grand Place if you're happy to go through some less than nice blocks. Otherwise, hotel is very close to the Metro.

Room is spacious with adequate and modern furnishings. A bit dark and adult perhaps for a family trip (getting to our room, we had to walk past a couple of doors with sexually suggestive photos)... Which my 2 year old may not have noticed but which I would not want to be asked about by an older child.)

Overall, great hotel. Best for couples with no kids and short-term stays in the area.

Your positive comment will be transmitted to the team.


As for the location, our hotel is strategically placed and serves the Eurostar/Thalys stop.
The Hotel even provides a free shuttle from/to the Midi Station, anda night guard from 6pm to 6 am to ensure the security of our customer.
The Be Manos hotel, is a design-boutique hotel with a concept of Black and White pictures, some may have appeared too suggestive to you but the aim is mostly to show people in their everyday life, thus you can find rooms with dogs, rooms with couples or rooms with kids, in case we have a family they will be automatically placed in our family styled rooms.
We truly hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back for your next visit in Brussels.

Warmest Regards.

This hotel certainly doesn't win on location, nor is it necessarily the most luxurious that I have stayed in, nor does it offer a full range of amenities you would find ain a big hotel. And Brussels isn't exactly the most exotic of cities. But beManos is my all-time favourite hotel (out of many many that I have been to). Why?

a. Because it is not a chain hotel, as far as I can tell it is a family-owned business. Service is polite and understated.
b. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable, well appointed and a good size for Europe. They may perhaps be a bit too dark or "style conscious" for some tastes, but one cannot deny they are comfortable and welcoming.
c. The breakfast buffet while not as large or varied as in other hotels, is nevertheless of a high quality and adequate to get one started for the day.
d. Room service is quick and of a high quality.
e. Although the immediate neighbourhood is not exactly "charming", it is close walking distance to Gare du Midi. If you don't want to use the metro, then it is only about 30 minutes walk to areas like St. Katherine's Square (which has a good selection of restaurants).
f. I have stayed here several times and the level of service is consistent.
g. Did I mention the rooms?

I have seen other reviewers comment about the neighbourhood around beManos, and yes, it is not exactly attractive. But I would not say it feels unsafe, especially during the day (although I might understand single female travellers may find it a little intimidating late in the day). However, that aside, for me this is the best hotel in Brussels.

Room Tip: All the rooms are slightly different in size and layout, so I am not sure which to recommend. Howeve...
