Perfectly situated, walking distance from most attractions in the city and excellent hospitality. The breakfast is absolutely delicious with everything home made. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and there is secure parking and guarded street parking. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable with good advice on restaurants and interesting things to see and do.

Location and ambiance are exceptional: right at the center and in this unique, Muslim Quarter.
The support by Yoann and his team can not be better.
Even the small rooms are very clean, with good bathrooms and an original creation.

Arriving from N1 or N2 highway, stay on the main road, it becomes Buitengragt Street, turn right in Strand Street and take your second left into Rose Street.
La Rose is at No. 32 - it's a bright Yellow and Green house with a Red door.
