About this listing
1 (or 2) room(s) + bathroom in 200 m2 modern & enchantingly duplex (4th & 5th floor) with spectacular views (complete skyline of Brussels!) Feels like being above the city. Light, calm, space, nice terrace, equipped kitchen, piano, child friendly. All needs nearby (next to shopping street, public transport, park). Bicycles available.
It's the highest building in the neighborhood but still not very high. That means: lots of light, lots of views, no rumour of the streets and still cosy and part of a family driven area of Brussels. It has all the benefits of being inside & outside the city.
Guests have all acces to the house facilities (according to their needs).
Interaction with guest are as much or little as required.
We speak English, French, Dutch, Italian, German and a bit of Spanisch and Portugese. We've travelled enough to make all sorts of communication happen.
Situated in between the city town, Tour & Taxis and touristic attractions as the Royal graveyard (Brussel's Père Lachaise), the Royal Palace & Park area, Saint Mary Cathedral & ofcourse thé Atomium.
Laken & the Canal zone is the new area in development where a lot of new things are happening.
Our place is at walking distance to the amazing site of Tour & Taxis ((website hidden)) where lots of expositions & concerts take place.
Your in & out the city. Being so close to the center but away gives you a very nice insight to the genuine Brussels feel.
Fantastic bicycle lanes lead you to the center and we have Brussels-proof bicycles that you can use or at 150 meter from the house there is a VILLO station ((website hidden)) where you can take a bicycle and be part of the city-bicycle-net. We can give you all the info you need for cycling in Brussels and can even borrow you a double child carrier.
There's bus 88 at 4 min walk, tram 94 at 4 min walk, tram 3 at 8 min walk. BOCKSTAEL is an 8 min walk. This is thé Brussels North crosspoint for public transport (Subway, trams, busses....).
Pets are allowed but to be discussed in advance.
We don't have pets ourselves because we think a city isn't suitable to give them the life they deserve. But we & our kids love them. Depending on the length of your stay with pets & the length of their hair, we might ask for a contribution for the cleaning lady....
Smoking is allowed on the terrace.
Malgré le fait qu'elle ait été en vacances, Lotte s'est arrangée pour nous mettre son magnifique appartement par l'intermédiaire d'une voisine.
La description faisait très envie, et les quelques doutes que j'avais se sont envolés en ouvrant la porte. L'appartement en duplex, dans les combles d'un immeuble moderne est magnifique.
Très lumineux, avec de grands volumes, il est bien équipé, et offre comme annoncé une vue magnifique sur Bruxelles et l'Atomium.
Pas de problème pour se stationner dans la rue même, et une fois que l'on a compris quel tram prendre, le centre ville n'est qu'à 10-15 minutes.
Mooi centraal gelegen, net buiten de drukte van de stad. We kwamen vroeg aan, Lotte gaf ons voldoende ruimte en konden overal gebruik van maken. het gezin was behulpzaam en openhartig.
We had a very warm welcome at Lotte's house. The rooms were nice and comfortable and we had a good time at her house. Her kids were very friendly and my little daughter had a nice time playing with them. She explained to us the places that we could visit in Brussels and also about the public transport, though we mostly travelled by car.
She was always available on phone for any help or clarification.
Overall we had a nice stay at their home.
Lotte was very kind with us, and helpful as well. She suggested a very good syrian restaurant nearby, and it was the best choice to go there. The breakfast was excellent and plenty, the room was cozy with a good bed!
I suggest them as hosts!
Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer Lotte mais le contact par mail était excellent et très simple, l'appartement est superbe, organise en duplex spacieux et très lumineux.
Le mieux reste le grand balcon au dernière étage avec une vu dégagée sur trois cotés et un super ensoleillement !
Super séjour a recommander
Lotte was a wonderful and generous host. And so was her husband. Always trying to help us and make our stay a best one. She has such a nice personality that I felt like she was like one of the old & good friends of mine, so how much we wish we could have stayed with them longer and talked more with them ! When we were in trouble about our trip and found no good way about it, they kindly made every effort trying to help us out, and we finally survivied thanks to them !
We will surely would like to stay with them for the next trip to Brussels ! We miss their sweet kids too !!
Lotte has all the great qualities of a private host, and belongs without doubt at the very top of any globetrotter's list of preferred hosts: Kind, welcoming and capable of providing that essential personal touch. She makes you feel like you've been a long standing friend of the family. She is a typical problem solver. In my case she went that extra mile to help out and make my stay the best. She is more than willing and capable of providing good advise on local issues, and helped out on the logistics and finding my way around town. Staying at her place can be recommended without hesitation.
