Apologies for a late review. This was my first airbnb experience so I can't compare to others but the B&B provided by Olga was pleasant from check-in to check-out. Needless to say I would not hesitate to stay with the host again. Cheers.
Olga was an excellent host. She was accommodating of our arrival and a change of plans in our group. Thank you Olga for being a helpful and warm host!
Having endured a long flight, the comfortable bed was very welcome. We also enjoyed the roomy studio we were staying in, & the hot shower when we found out how to use it (it was actually quite simple, but we were tired !!).
Our breakfasts were full of variety and far exceeded our expectations.
The Studio is in a great position for catching public transport or for driving around Leuven.
Olga is a friendly and hearty hostess. She served a good breakfast with warm bread.
She is very willing to help you with tips for visisting the town or the area.
Olga was a nice host..the room and space were perfect..short hop into Leuven. Would recommend a stay here if visiting Leuven

About the Host, Olga
I grew up in Russia, Moscow, then I lived for a long time in Ottawa, Canada and Japan, because my husband was working there. Now I live with my family for 10 years in Belgium. I have a Belgian citizenship too. I got used to meeting people from different countries and different backgrounds. I am friendly, open-minded, interested in alternative medicine, art, gardening, astrology. I play chess and fond of Italian and Asian cuisine. I like going to Paris and London to see good quality shows, opera's and ballets.
As a host I strive to make my guests feel at home and be 100% satisfied with their visit. I am always ready to share with them any information available to me about Belgium, its towns and cities, Leuven University and other places of interest.
