Le Parvis is located in the heart of Saint-Gilles's neighborhood. The grande Place is at 25 minutes walk from it. Le Parvis is the historic core of the neighborhood and it is also a not-to-be-missed place in Brussels, very courted and with beautiful architecture as buildings are of Art nouveau style.
There is a daily market, which has existed since 1865 (the oldest market in Brussels).
The area of the Parvis has both, a bohemian/cosmopolitan and alternative atmosphere; many painters, writers and musicians live here.
At 300 m far from the room there is a large variety of cafes, bars and restaurants with lively terraces and musical groups on weekends.
The area where the room is located is very well served by major public transport:
Distance to bus/tram/metro stations:
- Parvis de Saint-Gilles = 3 min walk;
- Porte de Hal = 4 minutes walk;
- South Station (Gare du Midi) = 7-8 min walk).
- From South Station:
* It takes only 20 minutes by train to get to the airport
* A bus line (Ryanair bus shuttle) continuously connects to the airport
Brussels-Charleroi, located 60 km south of Brussels.

Our stay with Levente was great! It was really nice having our own space to ourselves and having a kitchen in the room was a great bonus. The room kind of felt like we were camping in a cabin during our stay which we enjoyed.
The room also has excellent links to the tourist sites in Brussels, and is very close to the train station that can take you on day trips out of the city.
Levente was very kind when we interacted with him and gave us some great advice about what to see in town. I would definitely recommend this place to those considering it.
Levente is a very nice guy, he was always pleasant, helpful and tried to make us feel as comfortable as possible during our stay.
The room is tidy and is well equiped with rather old but very functional furniture, although it was difficult to feel completely like home because in such old houses you can hear through the walls, and the room is exactly above the cellar, which makes every step sound like an earthquake.
It is as well uncomfortable that the shower is rather in Levente's house, since after a heavy day of walking you want to have a nice shower without having to bother your host going through his living-room with your towel and shower stuff. As well there are set times for using the shower, although Levente is flexible about them.
Nevertheless, if you don't mind about this last two points the room is a very good option for a trip to Brussels, the neighbourhood is calm, friendly and interesting, and the center is reachable by walking.
room is good. owner is very kind! the house near mart and station. impressive!!
Très bon séjour chez Levente, il est accueillant, avec le sourire, toujours disponible et il sait où on peut boire de bonnes bières !!
L'appartement est bien situé, juste à côté de la gare du Midi, donc très pratique pour voyager facilement en Belgique.
Je recommande fortement !
We were not able to meet Levente but his friend Antonio was able to assist us during our stay. Antonio was always very helpful and friendly. The neighborhood is very nice and cozy and the location is only a short walk away from Gare du Midi and the Porte de Hal metro stops as well as extremely close to a supermarket. Overall a good stay, however cleanliness could be much improved, especially in the bathroom and the shower.
notre hote a ete tres aqueiante, aimable et nous a montre attention.
le logement a ete correctement decrit il est tres bien dote
My husband and I truly had a lovely time at Levent's place.
What a splendid place!!
We are a well-traveled couple. We have met many hosts before, however, Levent is the greatest host ever. He is a literary Gem! We arrived there at almost midnight, but he welcomed and comforted us. He is very friendly, amiable, and always willing to help us. Also, his place was perfect for us. It is very spacious, neat, and tidy! Furthermore, it has calm neighborhoods. We could reach to any facilities we needed.
Laundry room is just next house, within 5M!!
Supermarket(Carrefour), one of the biggest market) is nearby house within 1-2minutes on foot.
Everything is in its boundary.
Cantilon, one of the most famous beer brewery in brussels, is 15 minutes walking distance.
Thank you, Levent. :D
