Our home and decorated "China" room is a great place to spend one or multiple nights in Leuven. Discover Leuven and Belgium by bus, train or car. Enjoy the Belgian hospitality, cuisine and drinks. Come for a journey, go home with lots of memories.
Oh yeah, we're back from 5 months traveling the world, maybe we've been to your country? Cheers!

The space

We have a cozy apartment with a second bedroom that we have set up for guests. A room for people who like to relax, read and enjoy traveling. The room's theme is traveling and specifically linked to China. The room is 20 sq m with a double bed. It's at the south side of the building, so there's sunshine almost the entire day. You can also enjoy this from our balcony. The bookcase has mostly traveling books (in English or Dutch).

A small breakfast will be available if requested :) (tea, milk, juice, bread, cereal, fruit, some jams).

Our apartment is just outside the 'Ring', so it's quiet at night and at daytime you can go easily to the center.

Guest access

You are welcome to all parts of the apartment except our room. The bathroom is only shared with us. If you like to cook, the kitchen is cozy, with space for more than one cook (just clean up after your use). If you want to learn more about very special Belgian beers, always feel free to ask and we can give you some recommendations.

Interaction with guests

We are usually at home in evenings or during weekends and love interacting with guests, always keeping in mind our guests' privacy and independence. We offer recommendations or information for visiting Leuven or other places in Belgium, restaurants, taking public transport, etc. If you need to know anything about craft beer or wanna share a bottle: you're at the right place :D
We are happy to share some of our traveling stories or listen to other people's stories. We speak English, Dutch, Chinese, French, German, and some Spanish.

Other things to note

We are both young professionals working during the week, so we like to plan a little upfront :D Two days notice is a good idea for normal check in time and for any more unusual requests, let me know sooner. Also please let me know if you are delayed as I wouldn't want you waiting outside my locked door.

We have a cat (Bubbles, our little Siberian tiger :) ) in the apartment. So no other pets. Let me know about allergies and I'll try keeping him out of your room. Bubbles is an integral part to the house though (He's the king :D) .
