Two years ago, I visited Leuven for the first time. I became fascinated with the Begijnhof. When I decided to return to Leuven again, the location of this guesthouse was the deciding factor. It was right across form the entrance to the Begijnhof. It was a very nice surprise, when my daughter and I arrived, to meet the innkeeper, Michel.... More

Beautiful B&B oozing with character. Very tasteful decor, the blend of old and new works perfectly.The linen is of the highest quality and the breakfast excellent. Michel, the owner, is attentive and charming. This is a special place you will always remember. A short walk takes you to the centre of town. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I loved this b&b! It was my last night after a long journey through three countries. I was met at the door by Michel, the owner, who has lovingly restored this 400 year old building. My daughter was with me and he asked us to sit and enjoy a refreshment while he gave us wonderful information about events in Leuven!... More

Very hospitable and helpful owner who runs a small B&B in the prettiest part of town. Loved everything about our stay - simple, tastefully decorated seventeenth century house and rooms, delicious breakfast (including home made jams and eggs from his chickens). Perfect!

Working in faculty club for a customer - i booked a night in this B&B. Even though i am not a big fan of the B&B formula ( " obliged socializing" etc..) i would really like to recommend the Gueshouse Begijnhof.

What a little gem this B&B is. It is tucked away down a wonderful cobbled street directly opposite the Begijnhof but ideally situated for a short walk into the main town. We stayed on the top floor and the room was very spacious, warm and modern with flat screen TV, very comfortable with a luxury bed and sofa. The owner,... More

This B&B is really exceptional. The house is four hundred years old but has been lovingly restored by Michel, the owner, and is now very comfortable indeed with a great bed. The location is amazing - directly opposite the extensive, exquisite and peaceful 13th century Begijnhof (a sort of village within a town), but just a 10 minute walk right... More

Beautiful building, even more wonderful view and such a peaceful place - hearing the bells from the Begijnhof softly giving the time... Modern and comfortable room, wonderful home-made jams (from berries and fruits of the garden) for breakfast and the most attentive, friendly and professional service one could hope for. Five star standard at a guesthouse, what a treat!

This lovely B&B is right near the quiet, peaceful streets of the Begijnhof. Michael is your charming and attentive host and we really enjoyed chatting with him during our stay. He even drove us to the station through the icy streets on the morning of our leaving. The room we had faced the Begijnhof and was cosy and well appointed.... More

We enjoyed our stay in this hostel very much, since everything was just right. First of all, the location is magical, and we were lucky enough to have a room overlooking the Begijnhof. Waking up with the bells of the church in the Begijnhof is wonderful. As I understood from other reviews, the B&B has been open for just a... More
