B&B Be in Brussels is located in the Rue du Chien Marin (also known as Zeehondstraat which means seal)
right in the middle of the vibrant district of the “Place Sainte-Catherine”, which has lost none of its historical beauty.
Legend has it that the remains of a large and well preserved marine mammal were discovered here during the construction of the harbour.
When staying here, you are but a few steps away from the historical city centre and its medieval layout. Enjoy its charm and discover its magic!

The Sainte-Catherine’s district, originally a harbour basin, still retains traces of its medieval past.
Tantalise your taste buds at the many bars and restaurants.


The street has maintained the character of a 19th century alley with its small and baroque stone chapel,
dedicated to St. Roch, patron saint of the plague-stricken (1767).


The main avenues in Brussels did not have gas street lighting until the first half of the 19th century.
However, in most narrow streets and alleys, street lighting wasn’t installed until long after that.
At that time, chapels did not only play an important part in religious life, they also provided light in narrow streets and alleys.
