Saint-Guidon (French) / Sint Guido (Dutch) is a metro station on Line 5 of the Brussels Metro. It is located in the Brussels municipality of Anderlecht. The station opened on 6 October 1982 as part of the Beekkant - Saint Guidon extension of line 1B as the service was called until 3 April 2009. Prior to the opening of an extension in 1985, the station became the western terminus of line 1B. Since the reorganisation of the network on 4 April 2009 the station is part of the new line 5.

Nearby sights include the Collegial Church of Saint Peter and Saint Guy (Sint-Pieter En Guidokerk), for which the station was named; the Erasmus House Museum; the Old Beguinage (now community museum); and the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, where R.S.C.
