The Captaincy Guesthouse at Sainte-Catherine in Brussels, your home away from home for short breaks with family and friends.

The magnificent house in which this cosy guesthouse is based was built in 1694 and hosted the captaincy of the Brussels harbour in the 17th/18th century, before becoming the private estate of a merchant.

Suitable for up to 18 guests, groups staying here can enjoy exclusive use of the whole property, and everything you need to make you feel at home is included: free high capacity WiFi all over the house, great terraces and a suspended garden with table tennis and barbecue, television, very functional and large common areas like the kitchen, a splendid sitting room - perfect for your receptions or business events.

Our breakfast table (combined buffet and served) is composed of the best and freshest typical Belgian products: different types of special breads, spreads, juice, coffee and more - served until 11am.

At the 'Captain's house', guests benefit from the settings of an historic and luxurious estate, a place to relax and enjoy the peace, yet right in the middle of the historic city centre, within 5 minutes’ walk to the Grand Place, and with direct connections to the European Institutions and major business centres (5 minutes away by underground).

The Captaincy is located in the oldest part of the city, Sainte-Catherine, often referred to as the 'Fish Market' and where the port used to be, with many beautiful squares typical of Brussels. Many places of interest in the city are within a short walking distance: the main musea, the Grand Place with the famous 'Manneke Pis', the Stock Exchange, the famous 'Sablon' antiquarian’s area, the covered Saint-Gery market (now a great lounge and expo hall), the Saint-Hubertus Galleries, the Palace of Justice.
