“Charmin lives up to the Name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

I have stayed at the Charmin a number of times during Oct, Nov and Dec and view it as a home away from home- breakfast is anabsolute delight and at 10 euros is a bargain.
If you want to do business in and around Zaventem or diegemis is ideally placed asit is for the airport.

Room Tip: Groups or a couple should consider the larger room, expecially if you intend to eat in!

Absolutely beautiful place.

I would highly recommend anyone to stay in this B & B.

Ann and Guy where the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble.

Me and my husband stayed in the Studio room which was spacious and beautifully decorated.

The whole house was just stunning, and the garden was idyllic.

If I ever go back to Belgium, I would only ever stay at B & B Charming Escape.

Thank you Ann and Guy for an amazing break 

Room Tip: Beautiful and romantic

A delightful home run by a delightful family. I stayed in the Studio for one night. It has everything you could want. Clean, bright and cosy. Very comfortable beds and an excellent bathroom with all mod cons.

It's quiet and tucked away, an ideal place to relax after a hard day. For me it is a great alternative to the typical airport hotels.

You will receive the warmest of welcomes and will feel part of the family. The breakfast is excellent and from the evidence of the guest book in the room, this is a place that people go back to again and again.

When leaving for the airport the journey takes about 15 minutes and is nothing like as stressful as getting into somewhere like Heathrow.

Oh and my night and breakfast was at least 15% cheaper than even the cheapest airport hotel chain.

Room Tip: The studio is great, with a kitchen, sitting space and fully equipped bathroom

We rented for a week the studio, we enjoyed it very much. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed. Ann and Guy were very nice and gave a feeling of home. Definitely recommended!

Rented the studio in this family run B&B for a weekend of cycling and relaxing. The accommodation was great, very bright, modern and spacious. Welcoming owners, very nice breakfast. Surroundings perfect for cycling (with a lot if pubs on the way..) The owners even lent us their bikes! Would definitely recommend it!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2011

We used this location to spend our last night prior to leaving from the Brussels airport the next morning, after a two week driving vacation in northern France and Belgium. The owners son followed us to gas up our rental car for the return of our rental car the night of our arrival. They also drove us to a restaurant in town and came back to pick us up, due to a Holiday, when "walkable" restaurants were not open. A nice breakfast was prepared early for us the next morning and we were taken to the airport for our return flight home. So three free transportation trips were included in the price....outstanding.

The bnb is their large home built a few years ago in the suburbs of Brussels, but do not let that deter you from using this as a drop off point for airport transportation, They have meticulously manicured the back yard, the home is quite large, beautifully furnished and well insulated for noise. We had the top floor bedroom with our own bath and sky light, very nicely furnished, and very clean with very nice toiletries, towels, etc. We received a complimentary half bottle of wine, upon arrival. The owners allowed us to use their computer to check in and print off our boarding passes.

Their English was very good, and it was fun to talk to them and their older children, one who was very helpful to us as the transportation "manager", so we talked about his studies, etc.

This place easily merits it's "charming" name and excells in service.

Highly recommended by seasoned 61 year old travelers, who tour just about every year throughout Europe, and stay at bnbs or apartments.

Give it a try, you will be totally satisfied.

We stayed here before flying home to Canada and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Ann & Guy welcomed us like family and shared tea with us in their lovely backyard. The room is spotless, quiet and well appointed. The bathroom is bright, modern and luxurious. Buon Gusto is a fabulous Italian restaurant a 10 minute walk away.....Ann is happy to make reservations.
Breakfast is delicious and the shuttle to the airport efficient and flexible.
