Have stayed at Urbanrooms on a fairly regular basis over the past 3 years. Fed up with 5 am bin lorries and cobbled streets, it offers a quiet, peaceful environment. Always very clean. Yes, slightly quirky in terms of access etc. but I like it! Great place to prepare for the rigours of Brussels meetings and perfect location for me!

My colleagues and I have now stayed at Urban Rooms twice while on business travel in Brussels and I could not recommend it more highly. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The common area is lovely with a homely, Scandinavian feel and the breakfast is very nice with lovely breads, jams, freshly squeezy orange juice, fruit, jogurt, delicious coffee... More

Located in the most vibrant of neighborhoods, Urbanrooms provided us with a nice and pleasant escape. Noise off the street was minimal, our terrace gave us the perfect place to unwind with a bottle of wine and bed was clean and comfy. If you want your own space and bang for your buck, look no further. Don't worry about the... More

I liked this place. The decor is very clean and modern, breakfast was very good and I liked the location. As other reviewers have commented the check-in system is slightly unusual: they send you a code which you need to get in to the building (yes you do need to keep that email you got months ago!), you collect a...

When looking for a B&B that is of good quality, not far from the centre, well located with bars and restaurants nearby you should certainly consider the Urban rooms. Julie is very helpful in giving tips and nice places to go to so that was very much appreciated. The B&B itself is very well made and plenty of room. Breakfast... More

Small room silly step in bath tub/ shower. No shelves to lay your clothes only hanging. No shelf for toiletries. Annoying. Electricity sockets have a copper spigot (French style) so my adaptor does not work. Also annoying. Could be perfect if some things were changed and rooms sold for €50 - €75 it's not worth more.

"checking in" was a bit odd at first (you have to follow a set of emailed instructions and find your own way in the place), but once you are inside the place is really cool. An all white décor creates a very stylish space, the balcony is perfect for an afternoon drink in the sun and the rooms are clean... More

Urbanrooms is a great b&b in Bruxelles, a good address to remember! Located within the african district, it is only a 15min walk to the city center. We were staying in the "Duplex" with our baby which was great as it offers 2 rooms. In summer you can even enjoy the terrace. The bathroom is really big and has nice... More

Stayed the last months several times at the Urban rooms due to courses I had to follow. As I was able to enjoy several different rooms it was always easy to get in and have a nice night. I prefer the loft as it feels more like a home then a hotel. Loved the bread in the morning. In walking... More

Having good experiences with the B&B urban this time not that long ago I go to a (I hope I am right) sister place, two streets apart from the B&B. Its quite tricky to decide how many stars to give. What I admire is the interior. Clean, rationale. I would add healthy and environmentally friendly. Far from being pathetic. Very... More
