Not our first stay at Le Chat Noir so we knew Alain of old. The house is narrow but tall with four floors: ground floor with large reception / dining area, lounge & kitchen; one bedroom & two bathrooms on the second floor; two further bedrooms each on the third & fourth floors. Mind the stairs as they are steep & narrow, characteristic of most contemporary accommodations in Ypres. Rooms are clean and hold three beds with sufficient wardrobe & drawer space. There is a small garden to relax in and satellite TV with several English channels. Alain keeps the fridge well stocked with bottled water, orange juice & a small range of beers for which you pay a relatively cheap price. Location is excellent, 3 minutes away from the Grand Place and with two patisseries & one new bar (Te Hopperie = Tom's Belgian Beer Bar, with over 300 brands of beer!) situated closer in Diksmuidsestraat. Alain also has vouchers that allows you a free beer in a couple of the more popular but upmarket restaurants and cheaper admission to local attractions. It is certainly somewhere we will stay again.
