THE ATMOSPHERE

Hidden just a stone’s throw away from Brussels’ Sablon and Grand Place, this charming guesthouse is housed in an Art Nouveau style building, built in 1902. Its tall and narrow frame, original facade and curved glass make it easily recognisable. Through the window, we noticed the table d'hôte lined with colorful cushions, which made us curious and eager to open the door to find out more. On entering, we noticed the shelves filled with Dargaud edition comics, as well as the guest book, full of messages from visitors. We then met Sophie, the owner and manager of the guesthouse, who welcomed us enthusiastically. We were already under the spell. She informed us that whole house was designed by designer Julien Renault and that the furniture was made to measure in Belgium. Sophie wishes to promote local artists by temporarily exhibiting their creations and works.

THE HOTEL

When Sophie bought the house she already knew what she wanted to do with it, and the guesthouse has now been open 6 years. It has 4 bedrooms in a row, all identical. With a simple, modern and refined style, the spaces are well thought out and optimized. Anything useful but not pretty is hidden, the bed frame is extended to make a bedside table, and a large mirror hangs on the bathroom door.  The bedding is 100% cotton from the brand  De Witte Lietaer.

THE service

Sophie takes care of the breakfast herself, she told us: "I want the breakfast to be generous and friendly!" It is a local feast of pastries from the Renard bakery on Place Fernand Coq, Belgian cheeses, organic jams, homemade chocolate paste, cork syrup, Brussels honey, homemade yogurts, fresh juices, etc. In addition, Sophie offers something new every day for people who stay more than one night.

THE host

Sophie is a dynamic young woman and interior designer. She takes pleasure from real human exchanges, she now looks after her guesthouse full time. The idea for a guesthouse came to her during one of her trips to the south of England, where she experienced English guesthouses for the first time. Impressed with the people she met, the lovely locations and generosity of breakfasts, she decided to bring the concept to Belgium.


SUSTAINABILITY

All products, food and supplies for the guesthouse are purchased locally, under Sophie's requirements.


THE little extra

In our opinion, Sophie is a real added value in the guesthouse, she is super friendly and will welcome you with pleasure. “Miss good tips”, she will happily share all her inside knowledge of Brussels with you.
