Rik's place is full of character and a lot of fun. The location is really fantastic, moments away from the arcade and Grand Place. Rick was also accommodating with our requests. We would stay again if returning to Brussels.

The house was in a very central location, perfect to get to and stumble home from all of Brussels' brilliant bars. The house itself is something else, so quirky yet homely. I would definitely stay again if in Brussels again.

Brilliant location - very close to grand place. A lovely quirky house with lots of history - we were a group of 7 and there was plenty of space for all of us. 6 of the beds are in one room which we didn't realise before booking but worked out fine.

A very unique place to stay with a lot of character. Check in was easy and Rik communicated quickly via messages. If you've got any mobility problems in your group you may not handle the narrow staircases well. Otherwise, this place is in a fantastic location to see the city center and good for simple needs.
