Just came back after 3 nights in the room 1. Actually it's an apartment! There is a large lounge with piano, sofas and 2 armchairs for relaxing, a small kitchenette with fridge (full of cans and beers - pay as you use), microwave, boiler and camp stove (some rice, pasta and so on where there on disposal I suppose, we didn't use it) and wifi internet connection.
From the photos on the website you can notice that the bathroom walls do not arrive till the ceiling, moreover it doesn't have a radiator, this means: warm water vapour goes out up of the walls and the only way to warm up the bathroom is with the radiator in the room ..this was difficult given the outside temperature, but in the summer it shouldn't be a problem. There was no handshower, thus you have 2 choices: have a bath or have a shower handholding the shower by yourself!
There is NO Television.
Breakfast was delivered from Danielle's hausband directly in our lounge, at the time we decided and with what we chose the day before. The appartment was fairly clean, but not meticulously.
It is in the art nuveau quarter, reaching the city centre takes about 30 minutes (500m on foot, 10/15 minutes bus ride Darwin-Royale, then walking to Grand Place takes about 10 minutes).
Finally we have had a good stay at a good price.
