The earliest you could arrive is 3 pm in order to leave your bags and pick up the keys (the apartment will be ready soon afterwards). No earlier check in will be possible. A good option for the early arrivals is to use the baggage lockers at Midi station and start discovering Brussels right away. There are also baggage lockers at Central- & North Stations.

Once at our house you will have at your disposal the whole apartment, access to the terrace and to the washing machine and dryer in the basement.
Interaction with Guests
We imagine most guests want to stay on their own. But since we live on the ground floor we love when the guests come along to meet for a chat. You are always welcome for a question or anything you may need.
The apartment is ideally located in a calm part of the city Centre, it is at walking distance to:
- Grand Place, the very centre of Brussels
- Corner shop and nice bakery in the same street
- Trendy bars & restaurants and from Rue Dansaert (designers & shopping district)
- Tram station (porte d’Anderlecht) is near the house which drives you in 5 minutes to Brussels midi station (Thalys, Eurostar, trains to Brussels National Airport (Zaventem) and shuttles to Brussels South Airport (Charleroi)
- Public parking in the area.
The apartment is well connected with the public transport to tourist attractions, train/bus stations and the airport. From here you will visit most of Brussels on foot.
Other Things to Note
Paid parking has been introduced in almost whole Brussels. There is Q-park garage called 'Dansaert' is at 10 minutes walk from home: Place du Nouveau Marché aux Grains 2, 1000 Bruxelles and it costs EUR 18 for 24 hours. This is cheaper and safer than parking on the street. You can find further parking garage info on the internet.
We care about the environment and need your participation for the recycling. We ask you to keep recycle separated from regular waste.
Please, keep both windows closed when you are not at home. An unexpected rain shower could let water inside and damage the apartment.
Respect the neighbours: we expect no noise or loud music at night and to be quite in the staircase.
We expect you tidy up the apartment before leaving. We have described in a leaflet a list of easy and simple tasks to do before you leave. It will not take more than 20 minutes. We appreciate your collaboration with this.
Last rule of the house: Enjoy your stay!
El recibimiento fue genial, muy amable.
La cabaña es preciosa y estuvimos muy agusto.
Se encuentra muy cerquita del centro.
Un verdadero placer. Sin duda lo recomendamos.
A big thanks to David for his warm welcome. He was really nice, took time to explain everything, give us all the good ideas to see nice things in Brussels and spend good time.
The flat is lovely and is ideally located. It was clean, well tidy. The bathroom is not at the same floor but it was ok and also very clean.
The district and the steet are quiet.
We spent a good week-end there and I warmly recommand you to go to David, José and Akio's place.
Aiko met us and gave us an overview of the main attractions, and the guide and map was quite helpful. The place is conveniently located, and you get a nice view of the nightscene. However, the bathroom is located 2 floors down and the steps to the attic are quite steep, so it can be inconvenient, especially in the night. The kitchen area of the attic is quite dark, though there are lamps everywhere in the attic.
Superbe expérience !
Les propriétaires nous ont accueillis avec beaucoup de sympathie, dans leur belle maison.
Ils nous ont beaucoup conseillé sur les lieux à ne pas louper, les restos, les bars, les musées… nous avons suivi à la lettre leurs conseils avisés et nous les remercions vivement !!! Notre logement est aménagé dans le grenier avec un accès atypique… Attention, emportez le minimum, car les escaliers sont étroits et très abrupt.
L’aménagement est dans un esprit grenier d’enfance, avec des objets vintages, et à la fois très pratique avec l’essentiel pour votre séjour.
La salle de bain deux étages au-dessous, ajoute encore un peu plus au séjour décalé…
A 10 m à pied de la grande place, ou 5 m de la place Ste Catherine ( notre coup de coeur), 2 m d'une station de tramway.
Petit bémol, le quartier est assez populaire, et ne fait pas partie des plus beaux quartiers de la ville.
Mais nous n'avons pas rencontré de soucis de sécurité.
Vous avec à proximité une petite place trés sympatique ou vous pouvez prendre un petit dejeuner ou une collation rapide.
Je conseille vivement ce logement !
All I can say is wow. These guys really made our trip something special. For a few days, we lived like locals while eating and drinking our way through this magnificent city. None of this would be possible without the extensive reccomendations provided by our host. The house was super cozy, hence the name and we throughly enjoyed hanging out in our rooftop oasis. Be warned, though, there are ~7/8 narrow flights of stairs so think twice before you leave the house
Akio met me in the apartment at the agreed upon time. He was friendly and helpful. The apartment is in a quiet but super convenient, centrally-located neighborhood close to public transport.
Note that that the bathroom is "private," but actually in a separate section of the house two stories down from the actual attic apartment. Also note that the building is a walk-up and access to the apartment requires climbing up a ladder. This was no problem for me, but potential guests should be aware of this.
