About this listing
A big and fully furnished bedroom with a double bed, a working desk with wifi, and direct access to a beautiful shared bathroom. You can also make use of the kitchen on the ground floor. All of this in a 19th century workers' house that I completely renovated.
I am a single father, and my two children (8 and 12 years) live with me half of the time. We stay on the second floor and you'll dispose of the first one (apart from the shared bathroom). I've got a busy job, but if I'm around, I'll try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If not, you'll dispose of complete privacy.
The house has a perfect location. There's a bakery at 50 metres, a big grocery at 200 metres, and Leuven railway station at 800 metres. From there, about four trains an hour leave for Brussels airport (15 minutes) and Brussels city (20-25 minutes).
The house is in Kessel-Lo, a borough of Leuven. Gorgeous sites such as Vlierbeek abbey and some woods are within walking distance. Leuven is reputed for its beer, its university, its young population, and its splendid town hall. But it's also an ideal starting point for trips to Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, and Brussels.
Idesbald and his childrens were excellent hosts. We felt completely at home, the place is really nice and close to everything. We really enjoyed our time there. Thanks again !
I had a pleasant stay in Ildesbald place and by doing so, I had a new experience of a side of Leuven that was unknown to me. It was pretty cool. The access to his place is from the back side of the train station. 10 mins walk. The bedroom is generous and the bathroom too. The house is large and Ildesbald fixes a bfast and perhaps a blonde beer too. ;) I would come back there next time, the bar in the corner is the close experience of the romantic/boheme mythical Belgie. Abundant food, good beers and educated music selections from the bartenders. Thanks for the experience Ildesbald. O.
The host was really kind and tried his best to make my stay comfortable. It was good stay. The place is located near the station and very quiet.
We hebben het erg naar onze zin gehad bij Idesbald, Maud en Wolf. De kamer was ruim en netjes, het bed groot en comfortabel. We konden gebruik maken van de keuken. We voelden ons erg welkom en thuis. Idesbald, bedankt voor de gastvrijheid en de leuke gesprekken!
Prima plek om Leuven te verkennen. Vanwege de sneeuw kwamen we een dag later waar soepel op gereageerd werd. Kinderen knakten heerlijke koekjes waar we van mochten proeven. Ruime kamer. Gebruik van leefruimte en keuken beneden. Prima ontbijt . Gastvrije ontvangst en leuke tips om Leuven te verkennen.
It was my first time in Belgium, but I was so lucky that I found this host. Maud's father is a great man. Although we were both very busy at the time, I had the opportunity to discuss with him a bit about the history.
The room is spacious and clean, and the house is located in a very silent place.
Superb. I highly recommend the host and the place.
Gezellig appartement op goede locatie (10 min lopen van Leuven station, 1 min van bakker en supermarkt), ruime slaapkamer en met een tuin. Super vriendelijke host die zelfs iedere ochtend warme croissantjes en verse jus d'orange voor ons klaarzette. Overdracht van sleutel en communicatie verliepen ook vlekkeloos. Ik zou dit zeker aanraden aan iedereen die Leuven wil bezoeken!
