There weren't towels in the room in the evening when we arrived, so we had to share our little travel towels and even one of us couldn't had a shower until next day when we had to go down and ask for them to the owner.
And when we went to pay the final price wasn't what we had been told by mails, but very much expensive, so we left very dissapointed!
I must say that breakfast was perfect!
And I love dogs but it's not nice to have them around you in the kitchen while having breakfast.

Wij verbleven tijdens het weekend in deze mooie en zeer klantvriendelijke B&B. Karin en haar dochter Nerjis stelden alles in het werk om het ons zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken. We waren eerlijk gezegd wat bang nat het lezen van enkele commentaren. Maar de kamers zijn zeer nieuw ( pas gerenoveerd volgens de gastvrouw ), met mooie linnen gordijnen en een zeer comfortabel bed. Deze volkse buurt is niet de sjiekste van Brussel, dat moge gezegd, maar uiterst gunstig gelegen naar het historische centrum van Brussel toe. Wat ns betreft, we komen zeker terug!

Dit is een plaats om te vermijden: u betaalt 115€ voor de kamer die u niet had gereserveerd (men verteld u bij aankomst dat de kamer die u gereserveerd had en waarvoor u betaald had, niet vrij is en er wordt een andere kamer (suite??) aangeboden in de kelder. Deze ligt naast de centrale verwarming die ervoor zorgt dat de muur waar het bed tegenstaat elke 22 minuten trilt gedurende de ganse nacht.). De kamer wordt bovendien nog steeds verbouwd (blijkbaar reeds geruime tijd), is smerig, zonder airco en de verwarming bestaat uit een klein elektrisch vuurtje. De douche is zeer klein, je kan zelfs de duur niet meer sluiten (zeer praktisch).
De volgende morgen, bij het ontbijt, is er niemand. De tafel is gedekt, enkel voorzien van brood (dat reeds enkele dagen oud is), oude chocoladebroodjes en één (!!) driehoekje smeerkaas voor 2 personen. Naast de koffiezet wordt vermeld dat er en supplement wordt verwacht van 0.5€ per kopje koffie.
Een goeie raad: ga hier NOOIT heen. Bovendien is het heel moeilijk om in de buurt parkeerplaats te vinden.

Endroit à fuir : vous payez 115€ pour ne pas avoir la chambre réservée (on vous annonce, lors de votre arrivée, que la chambre que vous aviez réservé et prépayée est prise, on vous assigne une chambre (suite ??) dans la cave, à côté du chauffage central qui fait vibrer le mur à côté du lit toutes les 22 minutes toute la nuit) ; la chambre est en chantier (apparemment depuis longtemps) très sale, sans aération et avec un chauffage électrique réduit à la plus simple expression. La douche est trop étroite pour une constitution moyenne, vous ne pouvez donc pas en refermer la porte lorsque vous êtes dans la douche (pratique) . Le lendemain matin, pour le petit déjeuner, vous ne trouvez personne, la table est dressée avec du pain (vieux de plusieurs jours), des pains au chocolat rassis et infects et un (!!) petit triangle individuel de fromage fondu pour 2 personnes. A côté des dosettes de la cafetière, il est indiqué qu’une participation supplémentaire de 0.50€ est demandée par tasse de café. Un conseil : n’allez JAMAIS là-bas. Par ailleurs, il est très difficile de trouver à se garer dans ce quartier.

This is the place you souldn't spend the night in.
You pay 115€ for a room in advance but once you get there, you're told the room isn't available anymore (but you've already booked and paid...).
The manager finally leads you to another room called « Ensuite ». It is in the basement, right beside the boiler that makes the wall next to the bed vibrate every 22 minutes, during the whole night.
Works in the room aren't finished yet (it seems it's been at work for a long time), it is very dirty, it has no airing and just a tiny electric heating.
The shower is too narrow for a standard constitution, forbidding you to close the shower door. Very handy.
The next morning, nobody welcomes you for breakfast. You can find several days old bread, dried out and disgusting chocolate croissants and one (!) tiny piece of melted cheese for two people.
Moreover, beside the coffeemaker, you are asked to pay 0,50€ for each coffee you drink.
A piece of advice : don't go there. Never.
And, by the way, it is very difficult to find a parking spot in the neighbourhood.

On the positive side, I found my room (BLUE ROOM) nicely furnished and comfortable. I liked the decor, an amazing oriental lamp and a great bed. The area is not very welcoming but it’s relatively close to the metro so it’s ok.
Much more on the negative... Although it’s a bed&breakfast you can forget about getting breakfast there. I arrived pretty late (9:30pm) the first evening to be greeted by one of the guests. As the owner did not show up that evening I had no chance to ask about the time breakfast is served the following morning but assumed it would be possible to have it around 7am as I had to leave for a meeting around 8am.Unfortunatelu the following nobody was there from 7-7:30am but found nobody so had to leave without breakfast. To make sure I do get breakfast the next morning I wrote an e-mail asking for breakfast at 8.00am (again nobody was there to arrange it in person).My e-mail was ignored and nobody was in the kitchen between 8:00 and 8:30. Again, no breakfast!
When I was checking out around 8.45 am I found Karin, the owner in the kitchen offering me breakfast for which it was already too late for me.I did not have time to wait for the receipt either.In spite of my numerous e-mails asking for a proper receipt I never got it.The only thing I got was a few lines of text looking lousy and unofficial without any signature. After a while Karin just started ignoring my e-mails leaving me with the sorry excuse for the receipt...
Other than that my experience was ruined by the two huge dogs in the place barking like crazy in the morning and wiping their saliva at my suit as I was trying to leave my room. Summing up:
•You pay for bed&breakfast - you get bed & no-breakfast & dog saliva on your suit gratis
•Forget about getting a proper receipt. Business travellers stay away at all costs!
•It’s a completely self-service place – without the adequate comfort and with all the problems involved
•STAY AWAY!!!

mooie dingen en lelijke dingen samen
vuile kamers en kapotte meubelen
hondenpoep naast ontbijttafel
niet echt een aanrader (ook de buurt niet)
