Ever wanted to stay right next to the famous "Grande Place" and "Manneken Pis"? Well here is your chance! This is a very cute and cozy 1 bedroom apartment (2nd floor, no elevator) situated 30 seconds away from the Grande Place and all it's lovely terrace bars. Only a 2 minute walk to the famous Manneken Pis. From the apartment window, you can already see the Grande Place so makes for a great view!
You are 5 minutes away from la Rue Neuve, which is the big shopping street of the city center. Not classy enough for you? No worries! You're only a 5 minute bus ride away from Louise, the luxurious neighborhood of Brussels which has such shops as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Burberry many more... Feeling sporty? It's only a 15 minute walk.
The location is perfect! This is where everybody comes to go out for dinner, a drink or to party!
On a cultural level, you have museums and exposes on a regular basis just minutes away.
There is a corner shop open 24/7 a few seconds away from the front door so you'll never be stuck for groceries. And of course during the day, there are many shops and supermarkets to choose from.
As for transportation, there is a tram station "Bourse" at the end of the street. If you need to take the metro, De Brouckere is a 3 min walk away. All the buses also go from the De Brouckere metro station.
This place can accomodate 3 people: double bed in the bedroom and a big sofa in the living room. The kitchen is part of the living room (as you can see in the pictures.) You will have access to wifi and cable TV. There is a DVD player also and speakers. I have a huge selection of DVDs so feel free to watch any!
The bathroom is small with all the necessities needed! I think the pictures speak for themselves. I tend to leave shampoo, toothpaste and a fresh towel because I know I never bring those things with me when I travel!
All in all, you will love this place!
You will have access to cable TV, Wifi internet and a whole apartment to yourself! Towels are supplied
Interaction with Guests
I won't be present in the apartment but if anything is needed, I am right around the corner! And if you need a tour guide, I can be there to show you around :)
The neighbourhood is amazing due to it's central location. So many things to do and such great things to see.
No parking is included but their is a big parking garage down the street for 5euros a night. The tram is just on the street corner and the metro and buses surround the apartment, so you will have no difficulty moving around. From the airport, you only have a 20 minute train ride straight to GARE CENTRALE. From there, it's a 5 minute walk through stunning streets and you will even have to go through the beautiful Grand Place.
Mims' apartment is amazingly well located. Ideal for knowing brussels! Mims is very helpful and kind... Very nice experience!
Mims is a very charming host and made us feel at home, she gave us to try some typical speculous cookies as a welcome gift.
She replied instantly to all our requests and made the best to accomodate evertyhing to our needs, beeing very comprehensive and permitting a late check-out due to flight constraints.
The apartment is bigger than it seems in the photos, excepting the bathroom, which has the handicap of a low ceiling and makes it a bit difficult (and funny) having a shower for tall people (1,85m). Anyway, it all pays off due to its excellent location, Grand Place, Bourse Metro and lots of supermarkets at the round of the corner.
It is perfect for young people.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We stayed at Mim's place for a whole month and the location is unbeatable. You are a couple of blocks away from the Grand Place and walking distance to everything. We didn't even have to use public transportation. We walked to shops, museums, parks, you name it.
We even walked (10min) to the train station when we traveled to other Belgian cities and Amsterdam.
If you're not into walking, the metro is just around the corner. :)
The apartment itself it's exactly what's shown on the pictures. It's not modern but has "European charm". It is bigger than we thought it would be and very comfortable.
The bathroom is small. My 6'3" husband couldn't stand in the shower nor bathroom (that wasn't a problem for me at 5'4"). However, this is something that you can put up with since the location is so awesome.
We stayed here November-December and on the cold days the apartment heating kept us warm.
If you're really into cooking, this is not an ideal kitchen. Everything takes twice as long to cook in the hot plate but it's doable. Once again, the location made it all worth it.
The apartment is 2 levels above a bar, while it's not an issue during the week, on the weekends it gets a bit loud. If you have the TV or music on you won't hear but if you're a light sleeper it might bother you. We could hear the music but we didn't have trouble sleeping nor did our 1 year old daughter.
Mims was an amazing host. We had many many questions and she always answered them pretty fast plus she's super nice. She's the type of person you could hang out with and have a great time.
Overall this is a great place to explore Brussels and we loved it. It is the perfect location.
We would definitively stay here again.
Excellent location. Very easy check-in. A great place to stay if you want to visit the heart brussels
The Mims experience in Brussels was spontaneous, refreshing and has Inspired me to be Host myself. Mims energy fills the room, she was helpful land accommodating and at one point dubbed as a travel agent to help us get out of the country. The location was perfect and met all our needs and the accommodations were great too.
Anyone can have a great place for you to stay, Mims steps up the hosting category with charm, style and good old fashion care. Thank you for a great experience in Brussels.
About the Host, Mims
I'm a simple girl from London, having lived in Brussels for a few years now. I love traveling and meeting new people so airbnb is perfect to do so! I speak both English and French fluently so I can communicate smoothly with people coming from anywhere! And if I don't speak your language... I'll learn it!! :D
