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.
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!
Idesbald has a wonderfully, cozy apartment that is very cultural and clean. He and his children are very nice people and the home is not a far walk from the train station. The breakfast was light, but delicious and Idesbald has many great suggestions about touring Leuven and other cities. I would definitely recommend staying at his place.
great host, feeling like at home, could have better first days in Leuven
Idesbald was an excellent Airbnb host. He welcomed me upon my arrival, and showed me around briefly. I was attending a festival in Werchter, and his home was less than a 20 minute walk from the train/bus station, which made it even more convenient. I was able to arrive back from the concert at 2 AM, and he provided me breakfast on Sunday morning. I have no complaints whatsoever.
