Housed in a narrow 19th-century townhouse on a quiet side street, the one-star Les Ecrins is a simple and charming inn, and just a ten minute walk from the Grand Place.
A set of steep, tiny stairs leads to the 11 bright guest rooms upstairs, which are compact and cozy in a yellow-and-white color palette. All have crisp, clean linens, television, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and telephones. Room types vary from singles with shared bathrooms to two-bedroom apartments with complete kitchens. The bathrooms have clean new tiles, and some have bathtubs.
In the snug dining room, decorated with a “Tin Tin” motif, guests can enjoy a free homemade breakfast, prepared by one of the owners (who, we should add, used to run a Belgian restaurant in California). Guests are also permitted to use the kitchen upon request.
The chatty, welcoming proprietors have been running the inn since 1997, and are always happy to offer friendly tips and steer guests away from tourist traps.

About the Residence les Ecrins neighborhood
Located a 10-minute walk northwest of the Grand Place, Sainte Catherine area has come a long way from its days a medieval shipping port. Anchored by the imposing Sainte Catherine cathedral and the calm alleys that radiate from it, this is a fast-changing neighborhood where you might see a rundown townhouse holding out against a wave of boutiques, galleries and restaurants.
