“Feeling at home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

What a wonderful place to stay when you are in Brussels for holidays, for work or just passing by. Have been a fan for the last three years. The location is great and the rooms are very cozy and out of the ordinary in terms of decoration and ambience. They are spacious, very clean, with comfortable beds and give you immediately a feeling of relaxation. The hosts, Stephanie and Giacomo, are very sweet people and always very kind and helpful. While tasting their breakfast, in the beautiful gallery downstairs, you may believe for a moment that your mother is hidden somewhere in the kitchen! :-)

The b&b is located in the nicest area of Brussels next to all the nice bars and restaurants of ixelles. Shopping at avenue Louise is just 5 min on foot and public transportation that takes you to wherever you want to go in Brussels is right outside the b&b. Stephanie and Giacomo are the best hosts you could think of they are very kind and helpful. The breakfast is great .. all organic and homemade. They even make the yoghurt themselves !Will always be coming back here when in Brussels! So much better than all the overpriced hotels in Brussels!

We stayed four nights and five days at the Caravan 'Serail which was recommended to us by our friends who had stayed there before. We stayed at the Sha-Dô room and paid euro 70 per night including breakfast for two. The room was very clean and comfortable and cosy with access to a kitchen outside the room. The breakfast was great... great value for money and delicious with homemade juice every morning. Stephanie, the owner is friendly and very discreet and easy going. We felt very welcome and definitely will go back there the next time we are back in Brussels. Great location with access to public transportation and plenty of restaurants and bars to try around in Place Flagey.

Last year we stayed at the B&B for two nights, and we loved it. That's why we were very happy that we could book all of the three rooms for our this year's trip to Brussels to stay with our friends who were travelling with us.
As always everything was perfect – from the first to the last minute. The rooms were spotless clean, the rooms are cozy and of perfect size, the breakfast yummy with self-made juice and everything you need for a perfect start into the day.
I don't know if someone already mentioned it before: The rooms are on the 3rd and 4th floor without an elevator, so unfortunately it isn't suitable for elderly or disabled travelers ... (but I liked the stairs to get rid of all the waffles and fries :))

I spent a very comfortable week in the Caravan'Serail when in Brussels for work. I was going through a stressful period at the time, and its soothing atmosphere was just what I needed.

I stayed in the Timbuktu room at the top of the house. It is spacious, light, airy and warm, with wall to wall windows overlooking the garden, and a great en suite shower.

It was very handy to have access to a small kitchen equipped with a sink, oven, fridge and electric hob plate, so that one could make cups of tea or simple meals.

The area is great - near to the elegant Avenue Louise, and also Place Flagy with its supermarket, banks, restaurants, and shops. It's about a 25 min walk to the European Parliament.

The breakfast every morning was delicious, with fruit & veg smoothies, homemade yogurt and delicious bread.

Stephanie and Giacomo are friendly, attentive, courteous and relaxed, and so were lovely hosts.

There are a lot of stairs (and no lift) so not for those with mobility problems, and wifi struggles to reach the top of the house, but a lovely place to spend a few days, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

This B&B is in a good location, close to Place Flagey and public transport. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The owners are very kind. The price/quality ratio is excellent: the best B&B you can find in Brussels.

I don't really need to add anything here... The accommodation and hospitality were fantastic. Rooms are beautiful, breakfast is amazing. Amazing value for money!
The only downside is it is a bit far to walk to the main sites in the cente of Brussels..about 30mins. This was fine in the mornings but on cold nights we had to taxi or tram it.
This is a small downside though as the trams are 5 mins away and the area has lots of lovely bars and restaurants open at night.
Thank you Stephanie!
