Jam-packed with museums, art galleries and 19th-century architecture, romantic Brussels is a true dynamo of a city. And don’t get us started on the chocolate and chips. Check out the gorgeous Grand-Place and whizz up to the highest sphere of the Atomium to float above the tourists. While you’re here, we’ve collated the best bed and breakfasts in the capital of Belgium for you to stay in, so you can save your Euros for the waffles – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Happy Guesthouse, for central convenience

Situated right in the heart of Brussels and just a minute’s walk from Brussels Central train station, the Happy Guesthouse is set in a four-storey art nouveau townhouse. Perch on the breakfast bar, browse through one of the many art books on display and make the most of the delicious breakfast which includes homemade jams, Belgian specialities and crumbly pastries to die for. And when you’ve had your fill, Grand Place and Manneken Pis are a five-minute walk away.

2. Les Grands Arbes Guest House, for a stunning terrace

If it’s a home from home you’re after then Les Grands Arbres is just the place. Offering three rooms – all complete with a walk-in shower and office space – it’s set in the tranquil area of Watermael-Boistfort near the Forêt de Soignes. Relax on the terrace in the lush garden with a freshly-brewed coffee before exploring the city itself. Boitsfort station is just 200m (656ft) away and the Horta Museum is also close by.

3. Le Lys D'Or Bed and Breakfast, for castle views

Bed and Breakfast

Each of the three rooms at the Lys D’Or has their own unique style – with individual touches such as an ornate fireplace. The room on the first floor has a balcony which offers incredible views of Porte de Hal castle. Check out the bustling district of Saint-Gilles, which is packed with restaurants, cafes and quirky shops – before taking a walk down Avenue Louise, a hop, skip and jump away from your doorstep.

4. Carmelites Guest House, for local insights

Host Akemi is a professional tour guide and she and her partner Pascal are the font of all knowledge when it comes to Brussels, so hit them up with any questions you have about the city. The guest house itself is a three-minute walk from Grand Place and offers a double or twin room and a fully-equipped private apartment. There’s also a pretty little garden, where you can soak up the rays and enjoy your breakfast.

5. Albert Moliére, for an ice-cold welcome

As soon as you’re welcomed in with a Belgian beer it’s clear you’ll be treated like one of the family at the Albert Moliére guest house. The owners live in the house, while the five rooms on the first floor are available to guests. Set in the forest district, the B&B is close to Avenue Louise and there’s a tram stop right outside. Help yourself to tea and coffee whenever you need a quick pick-me-up.

6. Suites 124, for luxurious style

Looking for five-star luxury without the constraints of a hotel? Then, give Suites 124 a try. Set on the prestigious Avenue Molière and three minutes away from Place Brugmann, the focus here is very much on style. Expect cloud-soft pillows, sofas you never want to get up from and cool art deco touches in each of the four suites. Families can also stay in the Moliere House, which is separated from the rest by a landscaped garden.

7. La Maison Chantecler, for afternoon strolls in the garden

Bed and Breakfast

Grab a sun lounger by the pool and soak up the views of the gorgeous garden at La Maison Chantecler. The city may only be a 15-minute drive away but the Anglo-Norman mansion feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle. Enjoy a delicious organic breakfast on the shaded terrace – or by the fireplace when the weather isn’t so kind. There’s also a billiard table or, if you’re so inclined, a beautiful piano waiting to be played.

8. Bed and Breakfast Brigitte et Alain, for a home away from home

Hosts Brigitte and Alain go out of their way to make their guests feel at home in their small, family-run B&B in the Forest district of Brussels. As well as providing a huge breakfast, they are also more than happy to help you make the most of the city. The cosy B&B only has two rooms available and is just over 3mi (4.8km) away from the city – but the bus stop is barely a minute away.

9. Druum, for dreams that come to life

Set in the once-notorious “Devil’s Corner” of Brussels, Druum is now an achingly cool B&B. Each of its five rooms has been designed by a different artist, so you never know quite what to expect. For example, those staying in the David Bade room can write down any dreams they have during their stay and the artist will turn them into a drawing to be shown in the room. You’ll also get an email copy yourself.

10. B&B La Casa BXL, for a hearty breakfast

Bed and Breakfast

Just a few steps from the Grand-Place, the B&B La Casa BXL is situated in the lively Quartier Saint-Jacques area. It has four spacious and tastefully decorated rooms and guests are encouraged to make use of the communal kitchen. Although, you probably won’t need to as the continental breakfasts are incredibly generous and you’ll fill up on the freshly baked bread. Be sure to check out the mini brewery downstairs.
