Beautiful fully-furnished bedroom in newly-renovated eco-friendly house, a short bus-ride to NATO and the European institutions, with 2 buses in front of the door and a tram on the corner.

The Space

Second floor double bedroom overlooking street in newly-renovated eco-friendly house in Schaerbeek, Brussels.

For longer-term rentals, this room is really only suitable for a single person. For shorter rental periods, it may be possible to consider a couple.

Easy access to the European Union institutions on public transport (15 minutes), NATO (10 mins), Brussels Airport, train stations and the centre of Brussels (15 minutes) on 2 bus routes (64 and 65) which stop in front of the house. Tram No. 7 is a 2 minute walk away (for access to the Atomium/Exhibition Halls/Kinopolis Cinemas/Montgomery metro in 15 minutes). 2 minutes walk to the large Park Josaphat (for walks and jogging and a children's playground).

You can also walk to the main European Commission buildings, the European Council and the European Parliament if you are feeling energetic in about 30-40 minutes.

Evere domestic train station is a 10 minute walk away.

The bedroom is approximately 16 m2 and contains a double bed (160 cm wide) for one or two people, a built-in wardrobe, a bookshelf, a desk, a computer chair, a chest of drawers, a flat-screen TV and a DVD player. Internet via wi-fi or cable throughout the house. Belgacom HD TV in the bedroom. This room now also has its own small refrigerator for your drinks and snacks.

Bed linen and towels provided. Tea and coffee-making facilities in the bedroom.

Use of a new shower room and separate toilet on the same floor, shared with only one other person who is rarely there and never there on weekends. Hair dryer provided.

Shared use of Miele kitchen on the ground floor with all new appliances and dishwasher.

Makings for breakfast provided in the kitchen - guests can prepare their own breakfast at a time which suits them in the (website hidden) TV with channels in many languages and DVD player in the living room. iPhone/iPod docking station/recharger and speakers in the living room, as well as CD/radio/cassette player.

Use of washing machine and dryer in the basement, as well as indoor drying/hanging space.

The bedroom will be clean upon arrival. For guests staying more than a few days, the house is cleaned twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, and towels and sheets are changed once a week.

This typical Belgian row house with five floors was built in 1933 but was completely gutted and renovated in 2009. It now has new insulation on the back and front facades, solar hot water, triple glazed acoustic windows (which eliminate street and aircraft noise), captured filtered rain water for the toilets and washing machine, a controlled ventilation system, new heating, new electricity, new plumbing, and a water softener.

There are lots of great things to do in and around Brussels and your hostess can supply all the tourist information, public transport information and other tips you will need!

If you come by car, use of a garage close to the house may be possible for a small extra fee, depending on who else is there at the time and availability. There is some street parking as well, although technically, one is supposed to have a permit from the local town hall.

For parties of more than two people, it may be possible to accommodate additional people (e.g. baby, child, an extra adult) in other bedrooms in the house, depending on availability, so if you are a family or a small group of adults, please get in touch to discuss options.

PLEASE CONTACT ME to discuss dates/options BEFORE making a booking. The house has other rooms, also sometimes available although not obvious from this listing, and a self-contained studio apartment, in addition to this particular room.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the laundry (with washing machine and dryer and hanging space) in the basement. They may also use the garden. They also share the kitchen/living/dining room with 3 other people.

Interaction with Guests

Anne, who owns the house, also lives in the house. Everyone in the house comes and goes at different times, so you may meet others in the kitchen, or you may not! It's quite a social group when we are all there!

The Neighborhood

Schaerbeek is a middle-class neighbourhood in Brussels, between the old centre and the airport, with a very large park in the middle of the commune, 2 minutes across the road from the house.

Getting around

Buses 64 and 65 run right past the house.
Tram 7 is a one-minute walk away.
You do not need a car when you stay in this house, unless you want to go into areas in the Belgian countryside off the beaten track. For sightseeing and generally getting around in Brussels, public transport is more than adequate.
