The space

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.

This is a very nice room with access to living room and kitchen in a very friendly families home. I felt very comfortable there. I had a seminar to attend in Kessel-lo so the location was convenient. I cook most of my food and the family was very accommodating kitchen wise. Very friendly people!!

A really nice house with a really warm and welcoming family! The room was neat and tidy and I was able to do my work there in peace. But in general, I am extremely satisfied with my stay. 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.

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.
