Interaction with Guests
We'll welcome you and give some information of Brussels. During the summer when this place is available, Filip and Valérie are living outside the city.
From the famous every day flee market and antique stores, the international "Midi (south) Station" hub to many restaurants and bistro's all in less than 15 minutes walking. Some famous neighbourhoods easy to reach by foot are "Fontainas" with it's outstanding mix of international bistro's from Cuba, to Ethiopia, Italie and Japan and of course the trendy bars - "Dansaert", known for it's fashion shops and design, trendy resto's and bars - "Grand Place" the infamous Brussels city centre with many tourist attractions and cozy restaurants... - "Sablon" with it's rich glamour and antique markets, art-deco buildings and chocolatiers.
You're very close to the South Station, the main public transport hub of the whole country and the city. By foot you are in the vicinity of most tourist destinations.
Filip will hand you over the keys for which you pay a 15 € fee if you loose them.
Simple house with simple rules in which respect and mutual understanding has left us no troubles so far.
About the Appartment:
Downstairs you’ll find a more then 130 year old table. Don’t mind the scratches as they prove the old character of the table. What I find comforting is to imagine how many people have sat at this table and how many will in the (website hidden) set:
If you want a comfortable evening watching a movie you are in the right place. The TV set doesn’t have cable but we do have a lot of movies. Most of them in the English language.
The kitchen is all yours to use. Most material to cook is in the rack next to the fridge by the window. For special cooking tools you’ll find a red utility kit in the big white wall rack in the next room, from Oyster knives to Parisienne spoons.
If you bought food but forgot basic ingredients like sugar or salt, first ask the co-habitant if you can use them. If the quantities are not too big this shouldn’t be a problem.
After cooking and eating we would prefer if you could immediately put your cutlery, plates and cooking equipment in the dish washer. When it is full you can find tablets in the right hand drawer beneath the sink. No need to pile dishes everyone would try to avoid putting in the machine.
Please also don’t forget to turn off the oven or fires when finished.
We have a free-to-use high speed wireless connection with WEP code provided in the printed manual when you arrive.
We have some towels in your room you can use. Please use your own shampoo and soap, toothpaste and of course tooth brushes ;) .
There is a washing machine that can take up to 7 kg of clothes. We would like to ask you to put at least 5 kg of clothes in it for ecological reasons. We are always up for joining in with whatever we have to wash. This machine is not build for little batches.
We enjoyed our two night stay in the apartment. It is a lovely and comfortable place to be and the neighbours are very friendly. The location is really convenient and very close to the city center. Luck for us that there is a festival on-going when we are in the apartment just 10 mins walking distance.
We had some problem with the train connection and arrived in the apartments really late (11pm). Household is on holiday. But the neighbour is really kind and patient to show us the room and all the stuffs. Really grateful of her.
There are two bed rooms in the apartment, we were four people together. No one complained the bed. A very comfortable living room locates a really nice set of sofa. I think all the people who come for holiday would have a nice time in the room. A worth notable thing is that the ceiling is really high (maybe up to 5 meters). You would feel a lot of space around you.
Interesting flat in a decent neighborhood. Easy to walk to the sights. One thing that should be noted is that the bathroom is located down a VERY steep staircase which is only partially separated from the main bedroom. The second bedroom is actually a single bed in a loft area above the living room.
Filip's neighbor let us in and she was very nice.
The apartment was great and looked exactly the same than on the pictures! We were three friends, that spend a weekend there and had plenty of space. Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. It's well situated and you can walk easily to the centre. It was the perfect place to stay!
FIlip's apartment was incredible; spacious, cozy and pretty much everything you'd want for a trip to Brussels! Filip (and his neighbour) is incredibly helpful and make you feel right at home. The only problem is that I want a house like this now ;) Definitely one of the best places I've stayed with Airbnb!
