The White Box House is a wonderful B & B with lots of charm - both in the building itself and in the people who host you. We arrived close to midnight. I texted from the airport and was given excellent instructions on how to take the metro to the B&B. There is a beautiful church right at the metro station. We walked about 3 minutes after we got off the train and voila! You do have to keep your eyes peeled for the sign because it is subtle but we knew what to expect so it wasn't too hard to find. We were greeted warmly and offered a tour of the shared space on the main floor. Our host helped carry our bags to the top floor - quite the interesting tiny steep staircase to climb but it was very well lit and easy to navigate. When we arrived downstairs for breakfast we were greeted warmly and offered our choice of locations for breakfast. We chose the kitchen. The food was wonderful! Beautiful fresh breads and pastries, fresh cheese and meat as well yogurt, fruit and coffee & tea. We got out our map and our host was very helpful in making suggestions on how to spend our day - including which local restaurants we should check out. She even helped us figure out bus routes!
The bed and pillows were really comfortable. The towels were lovely and fluffy.
I would highly recommend The White Box House.
