My wife and I spent 3 nights in early July at the Carmelites Guesthouse after a Baltic Cruise. The property is on a small, quiet street within walking distance from the Central train station and all the major sights. In three days of sightseeing we never had to use a taxi or public transportation. The room was charming and appropriately... More

We had such a great visit to Brussels, largely due to the outstanding apartment we made our temporary home. We didn't meet Akemi, but Pascal was funny and charming and he was so generous with his time and answers to our many questions. We like to explore and discover things for ourselves, but Pascal recommended pubs and restaurants we probably... More

Stayed in the spacious apartment on ground level for 2 nights. Very nice living room, kitchen, patio and bedroom. Wonderful Italian shower. Akemi was most helpful with restaurants, places to see and things to do. This is a great location close to Grand Place.

As Pascal says, the B&B is really Akemi's idea, but he does a pretty good job running the place by himself while Akemi is on vacation. We stayed at the Carmelite for just 2 nights (not nearly enough) at the end of a trip. Pascal gave us fantastic recommendations on the best spot to eat traditional Belgian cuisine, advised us...

We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights and it was spacious, clean and well located in the heart of Brussels. Pascal and Akemi were friendly, helpful and generous. They helped to make our stay memorable and we highly recommend this accommodation.

Stayed at Pascal and Akemi's apartment (2nights) and guesthouse (1 night). Had an excellent experience in both places. The apartment and guesthouse are just round the corner from the Mannekin Pis, so very central and easy to find, but in a very quiet street. There are lots of good restaurants, bars and shops within a short walk. The apartment is... More

My visit to Brussels was to attend a conference and The Square which was only 5 mins walk from here - however if I were to return for leisure I would not hesitate to choose Pascal's fine guesthouse again. Despite being very central it is on a quiet area and the high quality bed (which can also be moved around... More

There is only one guest room, and it is on the top floor. That helped us work off some of the delicious breakfast that we ate each morning. The room was large and spotless. We stayed 4 nights and Pascal (the owner) was very gracious, answering all of our questions and helping us figure out what time to get to... More

Carmelites is run by a family who have converted their home to a B&B. The house is extremely charming - the brick arch separating the dining area and the kitchen gives the house a unique character. I understand from my conversations with Pascal (the Owner) that it is a preserved house in Belgium. The location couldn't be better. It is... More

Great little guesthouse just around the corner from Manikin Pis statue! Room was on the third floor but roomy & clean. Owner of the guesthouse was wonderful! He purchased fresh items from the bakery every morning and served breakast when we wished to have it. We had a tasty chocolate croissant! Chatted with him over coffee prior to heading out... More
