Brussel's Guest House

I think I have found my dream home. Those doors, those windows, those colors, that decor...it is absolutely perfect. The good news is that you can stay here. This is the guest home of Philippe Guilmin. This bed and breakfast in the the heart of Brussels in a former mirror factory.

Philippe acquired it 10 years ago and renovated it as his family home, as his children grew older he decided to share his home to guests. Rates are 70-80€ a person and 90€ for 2 people. In addition to the 4 guest rooms, there is a studio that can be rented for 15 days (400€) or a month (800€).

Don't you love that last bedroom? It is called "La Vie d'Artiste" and has a trompe-l'oeil headboard (the pillow, paintings and service cord are all painted). More pictures of the rooms and reservation information can be found on Chambre en ville website. I think I may need to take a trip to Brussels soon.
