The space

The house and guestroom:
There is a living room, kitchen and a toilet in the first floor, a bathroom and two bedrooms in the second floor, one for the guests and one for me. Essentials such as fresh bed sheets, duvet, towels etc. are provided. It is not a modern house, but a clean one for sure. Fresh bed sheet, duvet covers and towels are guaranteed!

There is a desk in the room where you can use the laptop, a rolling chair to relax in and a leisure corner where you can enjoy a cup of tee, coffer or just do some reading.

The hosts:
We work during the daytime and stay mostly in the first floor living room when back home. So the guests have enough privacy in the second floor. Of course we are willing to share any information if needed.

The neighborhood:
It is quiet yet convenient. Bus stops are wthin 200 meters and train station is just 500 meters away. Only 13 min train to Brussels national airport. It's also very convenient to other cities: 20min to Brussels city, 1 hour to Ghent and 1:30h to Brugge...

Other things to note

The street in front of the house Karel Schurmansstraat is in a Blue zone, which means the use of the parking disc is compulsory every day from 9 am to 18 pm except on Sundays and public holidays. With a valid parking disc you can park for free for 2 hours.

The free parking: The zone behind the house is a free parking zone, for example the street Krakaulaan, 3010 Leuven. It is just around 50-100meters from the house. You can alway park your car there as long as it doesn't block anyone's garage.

Nice room, nice bed. Chris is really flexible in checking in. Everything you need is there. Chris even left us two beers (that we unfortunately didn't have the time to drink).

Chris's place is very close to the Leuven main train station. Even though my stay was short, it was very comfortable. The coffee pods and beer are a nice touch. Chris was kind enough to look up info for my flight the next morning and carry my luggage up and down the stairs. I highly recommend Chris's place!

Chris' place is very clean and perfect when you stay in Leuven. It's nearby the train station but the neighbourhood is very quiet and calm.

Unfortunately we didn't get to know Chris. He left the keys in a lockbox and gave us all necessary instructions. The room was like I expected it. Clean and with everything, we needed. He even left us some towels and stuff. Th room is located in a nice, calm area close to the station. You can easily walk to the city center (in about 15 min).

Hi there, we are two PhD students living in Leuven. I, Chris, like running, swimming, hiking, playing ping-pong (as was doing in the picture) when I have time. I really like the airbnb community. It gives me a chanceto know many people from different countries and it is always a pleasure to chat with people from all over the world. We have been 16 countries and still counting! Willing to share any information you need.
