Your host, Sabine
The Street Lodge is an urban guesthouse that we set up in 2010 in our family home in the hope that you would feel at home your self.
I am an art historian by qualification and work in the tourism and editorial sector. After spending fifteen years in Brussels in a communication agency, I was able to realise my first dream, which was to run my own travel agency in Tuscany (Beautiful Lodge).
As a culture enthusiast, I never fail to recommend to my guests an exhibition that is worth a visit or an unusual place that deserves to be pinpointed. Discovering the city through its artists and craftsmen brings the visitor and the citizen closer together without taboos or barriers. This is the experience I want my guests to have when they walk through the door of our bed and breakfast.

A house from the 1950s
With great passion we have renovated our house, which, together with our neighbour's house, formed one large mansion in the last century. At the end of the Second World War, a bomb unfortunately destroyed the main house. Only the horse and carriage stables at the back of the garden were spared. The main building was rebuilt in the 1950s. We have renovated it entirely in a contemporary spirit while keeping the soul of the place and the charm of the old stables.
As a city dweller at heart, I admire the spirit of creativity that drives cities and makes them so endearing and original. Liège is one of those cities that weave their web over the years and never stop growing in a spirit of dynamism

In the heart of the Guillemins district near the Boverie
Rue Dartois is located 10 minutes' walk from the Musée de la Boverie, its park and the banks of the Meuse. The city centre can be reached in 15 minutes on foot.
It is also located between the Place de Bronckart, one of the most beautiful listed squares in the city, lined with beautiful mansions, and the Rue des Guillemins, a fast-growing shopping street that links the station and the city centre. There are many restaurants and small quality shops.
Our Guillemins district has been given a new lease of life with the construction of the magnificent station by the architect Calatrava. Numerous developments have taken place, such as the renovation of the Boverie Museum, which is linked to the station by a new pedestrian bridge, the Belle Liégeoise. The Boverie park and the quays along the Meuse have become very pleasant and popular places to stroll.
