A fanatstic guest house in the heart of Brussels. Best service that you can think of. Nice big and clean room. And they just have ONE! Very quite and just 100m round the corner to Manneken Pis. I will recommend it to everyone I know who decide to travel here.

I stayed at this Guesthouse in September 2012 for 5 nights. Not only were the accomodations beautiful, very large (large bedroom, large bathroom with full size bath), and perfectly located (one block from Manneken Pis, three blocks from Grand Place), but the owners are among the most charming people I have had the pleasure to meet. They were attentive, helpful and incredibly friendly. It was my first trip entirely on my own and they made my time in Brussels very special, even inviting me to join them for dinner one night, and offering to drive me to the airport on my last day. This may be the most charming lodging experience I have had in the many many trips I have had abroad. A gem!

Words cannot describe accurately how wonderful my stay at this charming B&B was.

The localisation of the B&B near the Grand-Place makes this a perfect spot to start exploring the city. This beautifully decorated house is gorgeous and full of character. The spacious bedroom is not exception.

The hosts are attentive and very dedicated as well as knowledgeable about the city. They are also generous when it comes to make recommendations regarding places where to eat or things to see.

Thank you Pascal and Akemi for making me feel quite at home in your superb guesthouse !

We loved the Guesthouse and our hosts were so accommodating and nice. The house is a lovely renovated portion of a Carmelite cloister. The one guest room is up a slim staircase on the 3rd floor and is very spacious with a nice size bath - all very tastefully decorated. The breakfast that came with the rate was a wonderful start to the day. Location is convenient to everything and the Zen foot massage machine was a God-send after walking around Brussels all day. My husband & I highly recommend.

This accommodation is truly one of a kind. Single guest room has high ceilings, large timbers, spacious hardwood floor, beautiful updated bathroom. Very comfortable. Downstairs [yes, steep and narrow as is typical], is the kitchen and dining area where you will have a wonderful breakfast. Remains of the ancient Carmelite nunnery frame the kitchen in red brick arches. Gorgeous. What a way to start the day! Mannekin Pis, popular attraction, is literally right around the corner. The Grote Markt is an easy stroll past that. Very pleasant and helpful hosts, Akemi and Pascal.
