Very convenient, near the river, near the centre of Durbuy. Access on arrival is from the main street, go in through the shop. Excellent breakfast. Try the walk along the river and visit the Parfumerie de Paris, in a small cobbled street in the centre of this very small town. In that Parfumerie, they sell brilliant umbrellas!

We arrived quite late in the evening and reception was closed (it's a very small hotel with limited facilities) but a quick phone call and our host arrived in a few minutes and set us up in our rooms which were spacious, comfortable and clean. The hotel is right in the heart of the beautiful town of Durbuy and although... More

This B&B is located in the centre of Durbuy (the smallest city in the world). The rooms are above a shop (where also the reception is located). Parking is free behind the place. Be aware of many stairs so do not bring too much luggage. Rooms are functional. We enjoyed a room at the second floor at the back side... More

The ground floor is a small local shop and this is where the reception is, concurrent with the cashier of the shop. So you may start with a bit bizarre check in experience with this accommodation. You will be led by the owner or his family to your room upstairs. We had 2 rooms, one facing with the street and... More

It was a good hotel. We felt very welcomed when we entered! It is not your traditional hotel. It really reminds me of the mom and pop shops in America but with a European flair. Their shop was connected to the hotel and so if you had any problems, the owners were always there to assist in any matter. Breakfast... More

Lovely little place but keep the faith when looking for it. No - you're not wrong it is a paper shop and tobacconist and that is where you check in...and yes parking is down that steep alley that looks only wide enough for two bicycles. But when you've parked in the private car park and climbed the stairs you're in... More

We had a very comfortable room at the rear of this small hotel. Simply furnished with a comfortable bed and an excellent shower. Breakfast was ample, which included boiled eggs, ham and cheese. There is a limited bar service of beer, wine and hot drinks served on the veranda which overlooks the car park and the river. The hotel is... More

I usually steer clear of small places - not always gay-friendly, so I'm suspicious. But the Library was lovely. No need to pay more for a pricy hotel, this was modern, stylish, very central, good breakfast, and very helpful couple running it.

A small hotel run by a lovely friendly family. The breakfast was excellent and they went out of their way to provide a "lunch pack" on our last morning as we had to leave early. Great location and the free parking was a bonus as was the free WiFi. Definitely recommended.
