“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

I think it is definitely worthy to spend some days in this hostel. Good location (tram 200 m away direct to the center of Brussels), perfect breakfast (croissants and capuccinos) and nice rooms at an affordable price. Downstairs, there is some art gallery and a garden with some hens (?). All in all, this is an unusual hostel with very good food, quiet, clean and not too expensive. All I can expect from a hostel. Do not miss it!

We stayed at Caravan'Serail for four nights with our two children while we were moving into a new home in Brussels. Caravan'Serail made every effort to make our stay comfortable and pleasurable. Our hosts offered us a delicious breakfast - each item made or chosen with care - and were a source of useful advice about the local area. We wish to thank them for their hospitality and look forward to seeing the exhibitions in their gallery in the forthcoming months.

What a hidden gem.

We stayed on the top floor (great thigh workout) of this super welcoming b+b. It's in the Ixelles district which is an eclectic mix of world food restaurants and old glamour. There is a tram stop literally outside the front door and it really well connected with centre and Eurostar (station midi).

Our host was very helpful and made suggestions for our holiday plus served a delicious breakfast.

The room was immaculate and had an en-suite shower hidden behind a secret panel (you are visible to the room when you are in the shower).
The beds were really comfortable and there is a mini kitchen/fridge available.
The wall to wall windows made the room feel extra spacious and more like an apartment.

Room Tip: Top floor loft room is fab.

I have stayed Caravan'Serail several times when working in Brussels. It's in a lively location with an abundance of good bars and restaurants, just a short walk from Place Flagey. The three bedrooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, with beds that are big and very comfortable. There is a small shared kitchen just outside the door for guests' own use. Breakfast is taken either in the lovely exhibition space or in the beautiful walled garden. It is copious: fair trade coffee and tea, freshly pressed juices, home baked bread, artisan cheeses... On top of all this, Stephanie and Giacomo are lovely and attentive hosts.

This place is amazing because of the garden, it is unique in Brussels! The charming room (mine was on the top floor with an amazing view on the garden, nobody to see around!), the very good breakfast with local products, the warm welcome of the hostess and the very good situation of the house (trendy area with lots of bars and restaurants and even a little lake) got me to just LOVE this place. I stayed there for a few weeks between two trips and I really enjoyed feeling like home. Thanks again Stéphanie!
