The house was beautiful, clean and with a great view. Bruno welcomed us personally and gave us all the information needed for the house and the neighborhood. Perfect experience, thank you Bruno & Leslie !!!!!!!
Such a lovely place to stay in Brussels! The view was amazing, it was clean, and it had everything we needed for the week. Our host met us promptly, was very informative, and even left us Belgian beers to try!! The apartment is located down the street from public transportation and was a brisk, beautiful walk to the center of the city. There were so many shops, restaurants, and cafés in the area as well. We never had a problem getting around and we had about a dozen books on Brussels left by our host for daily use. Could not recommend highly enough.
It was really nice place to accommodate. The view in the room is fantastic & Bruno, Leslie are also kind :)
Bruno was a very nice and helpful host! He waited us outside the building and introduced everything in detail. The room was bright and clean, location was good, view was perfect! The biggest benefit was that we can enjoy national day firework in the room!
Bruno was great, he was very welcoming and flexible to our arrival time. He showed us around the apartment and gave us some great info about the local area as well.
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.
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 :)
