Our host provided a warm welcome. The views from the apartment are fantastic. The apartment was more compact than expected from the photos but was still a good place to stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bruno's flat. He was such a gracious host, who after a long day of train travel, greeted us with 2 delicious Belgium beers. Great location, very clean, and comfortable. You can walk to everything you need, we even walked back to the train station.
Apartment was in a great location with lots of local bars & restuaraunts close by. Also close to major shopping outlets and anything else you might need. We walked from the apartment all over the city and found that lots of the places we wanted to go were in Ixelles anyway! The apartment was nice,bright and clean. The building smelled strongly of cigarettes and was very dark and dingey (maybe not ideal for young or female travelers?) but the apartment was pleasant smelling with a great view. Bruno's sister welcomed us and gave us info about the location of local things. Overall a great stay :)
Accueil charmant et séjour parfait dans cet appartement bien placé et avec une vue magnifique.
The apartment was beautiful, and in a really good location. Great views! Staying here was a great decision.
Bruno's and Leslie's apartment is really nice. The view over Bruxelles is fascinating! :) Bruno has received us very friendly with a lot of tipps and Belgian beer. Thank you, Bruno!
My wife and I stayed at Bruno and Leslie's for a couple of nights while visiting Brussels.
Bruno was an incredible host - he met us at the apartment in person, and hung out with us for a bit explaining the neighborhood, some great places to go, and offering other insights and tips. He even left us a couple of his favorite beers!
The apartment was bright and clean, with incredible views. The location was close to everything we needed (no more than a 10 or 15 minute walk), and was in a great area.
About the Host, Bruno & Leslie
Born in Brussels we have been living in the Ixelles neighborhood since our young age. After my university degree in computer science I choose to travel around the world (Australia, Asia, Latin America, ...). During this period Leslie ended a Phd in Chemistry close to Chicago. When I went back to Brussels I bought a small and cosy apartment offering us a daily landscape on the city. We have been living 5 years at this place. With Leslie we loved to live there, we could fall asleep looking at the stars and wake up front of a blue or a cloudy sky. We also loved to live in this place due to the neighbourhood soul and ideally located. Sometime we came back from work and easily joined friends to any bar, some time we were tired and choose to stay quiet at home or at the last minute we changed our plan and went to cinema or to restaurant. The sunday we loved to wake up and to walk to the centrum of the city to look at any exhibition or just to stroll on the Brussels' streets. Sometime we got the feeling of living in a cozy hotel room and early we started to think about sharing our place with guest from all around the world. Since we discovered AirBnB it looked to us as a perfect match. We enjoy the idea of welcoming guest from all around the world in our native city and to help them to love it :)
