The Space

Large apartment, very cosy and convenient, on the first floor of an old fashioned building with high ceilings and wooden floors.
Quiet street. The living-room and the bedroom are together on the back side, very quiet, with a large comfortable bed (1m60). There is a small terrace on the back side as well.
High speed wifi, no TV, but plenty of books (some in english), comic strips, dvds, cds. Towels and sheets are provided.
The fridge will be filled with everything for a good breakfast (mostly organic poducts) for as long as three days.
100 meters from a large public park very nice to jog or walk.

200 meters from the bus stop with direct connections (bus and tram) to the center (15 min), to Ixelles, or to the European district. Shops and restaurants nearby, very close grocery (50 meters) open till 9pm. Public bikes nearby.
Connections to the airport and train stations are easy.If you drive; parking is easy and free along the park (100 meters).

The appartment will be all yours. We live and work in the same building, so just knock at the door if you need anything.
We know plenty of tips about Brussels.

We are both artists, we have travelled a lot, and like to share interests with people from around the world. We speak french and english. I'm a writer and all my books are in this apartment which has bean my writing place for (website hidden) is very central and you can visit many other places from here with one-day train trips to: Antwerp, Bruges, Gand, Ostende, Leuven, Liège, Namur. The appartment is a 15 minutes tram ride to North-station (25 min to Midi Station).

Other Things to Note

Breakfast items are included (bread, butter, eggs, cheese, yoghurt, corn flakes, muesli, jam, tea, coffee, milk, most of them organic).
We expect you to announce your estimated arrival time, and to leave the appartment before noon (but you can let the bags till later).
We live downstairs and work home, so you can arrive any time, and knock at the door to give back the keys.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment is light and airy and it has a good atmosphere. In fact this was one of the highlights of our stay in Brussels. Elisa is a a friendly host and there were many tips for restaurants, cafes, galleries, walks and travelling around. The area around apartment is pretty, there's a beautiful park nearby. There's a good selection of breakfast foods to suit everyone.
    I would definitely recommend if we go to Brussels again would use again.

  • I had a great stay here. It is a beautiful apartment in a good location, which was clean and tidy when I arrived. The hosts were excellent and gave me a lot of useful information about Brussels to make the most of my stay. Highly recommended! Thanks.

  • Elisa was very helpful and communicated with us well; everything was as we had expected and the apartment comfortable and well-equipped. Located within a short walk of public transport and we found parking easy and straightforward. The bed a little hard for us but would no doubt suit many others. All in all we enjoyed our short time in Brussels.

  • The host was wonderful. The location was excellent. Apartment was as described, perhaps even exceeding expectations. The "bnb" part was not empty, in fact, there were eggs, bread, cereal, juice, milk, and other staples waiting for us at the apartment. Location very near a simple tram to get you anywhere around town you need to go. Excellent English-language notes around the house for common issues like using hot water, etc. Strongly recommend staying here.

  • I stayed at the Writer's apartment for two nights in May. It was very easy to find (Elisa's directions are great) and the apartment was exactly as described. Elisa left a lot of great advice/maps in the apartment, and although I wasn't there long enough to make use of them, I think they'd be a great addition to a longer stay. The breakfast was much appreciated! Elisa was friendly and I'm sure she'd be very helpful if it was required (again, I wasn't there long enough!). I'd definitely recommend this as a place to stay !

  • Beautiful apartment, caring hosts, perfect experience. The place is fully equipped and lovely decorated. One forgets about Brussels and wants to stay inside.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at the appartment for a week and we totally loved it. The accommodation is very clean. well equipped, cosy and not so far from the city center (20 mins with a bus).

    Elisa is an amazing host, she always responded to our messages within a few hours and made sure that we feel comfortable at her place. She gave us tons of information regarding the city, which places we should visit, her favourite restaurants, cafes or walks.

    I totally recommend Elisa and her place, very comfortable and it feels like you simply don't want to leave :)

  • Lovely and spacious flat in a nice area of Bruxelles, easy to get to the city center with the Tram. Elisa left us a lot of very helpful information of the area and the city so it was easy to find our from the first day. Definitely recommend as a place to stay.

  • My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Elisa's apartment. It's warm and cosy and we loved staying in a mini library. Elisa was very welcoming and informative and there's lots of notes around to help you out when she's not around.

    The apartment is in a great location - 10/15 mins into the centre with a very punctual and regular tramline.

    Breakfast is an added bonus too - the food is delicious and it's great if you're on a shoestring!

    Highly recommended.

  • It was a pleasure stay in Elisa's House. Very nice house with all the things that it needs. Elisa recommended us a lot of tips in the neighborhood and also in the centre. The house is really good situated and you can arrive in 15 minutes to the centre by bus or tram.
    If you are looking for a nice house in Brussels in a quiet neighborhood, this is your house.
    Thanks Elisa!!!

I'm a writer (novelist and scientific journalist). I like to share my best tips with hosts, so I'm building lists of my favorite places: restaurants, cafés, walks, museums, shops, parks... a kind of "Lovely Planet" guide that I will share with you.
