Cosy and colorful 2 bedroom + 2 bathroom apartment. Full of light and very quiet. Close to public transport (on top of a metro station), short walk to main tourist attractions. Good restaurants and nice bars in the area. Parking space available.
The apartment is about 100 sqm and has two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. One with its own tub, toilet and sink, the other bedroom has its own shower and sink, with a separate toilet in the entrance hall. Spacious living and dining room, all decorated with care.
There is a south oriented terrace, with a table and 4 chairs for you to enjoy the sun and some nice Belgian beer. Or a cigarette if you are a smoker, because smoking is not allowed inside.
Free wifi - wireless internet, fresh towels and bed linnen provided.
Interaction with Guests
Either me or my friend Stefan will be there to welcome you in person when you arrive. We will show you the apartment and give you our personal recomandations about the city.
The apartment has a view on the canal. The area between the canal and the Grand Place, with the Vismet, rue Dansaert and rue de Flandre, is most famous for its designer boutiques and stylish fashion shops, edgy art galleries, but most of all its cosy restaurants and trendy bars that cater for all budgets and tasts.
Supermarket is a 6 minute walk, but there are plenty of little grocery shops around the corner.
Metro is literally only 10 steps from the front door, only 3 stops to Central Station. It's also very convenient if you want to go to Heysel, with Brussels Expo and the most famous Atomium. If you need to head to the European institutions, metro will take you there in 10 minutes.
If you prefer walking, Grand Place is merely a 15-minute walk. It's one of the most beautiful squares in the world, from there you can easily reach the museum area.
The bike station is only a two minute walk from the house. You can easily rent a bike, which you can depose in any other bike station in town. Check it out on the internet, it's called Villo.
There is a parking lot in the building. Ask me for availability and prices.
Other Things to Note
Check in after 2 PM, check out before 11 AM as a general rule, but depending on other bookings I can be flexible. Which means you can deposit your luggage when you arrive at 9 in the morning, but the apartment might not be ready until 2PM. It could mean as well that you can check out at 6 at night if that suits you well, if there are no other guests arriving that night.
- Smoking is not allowed inside, but there is plenty of room outside on the terrace. Just don't put your butts in the plants.... You can find an orange ashtray in one of the cupboards in the kitchen. If we notice someone has been smoking inside, we’ll deduct 100 euros from your deposit. We’ll give this amount to the people occupying the apartment after you, as they will have to deal with the smell.
- No pets or animals, please.
- The number of people that stay in the apartment may under no circumstance exceed the number of people of the reservation. This includes children and babies, unless other arrangements have been made with the host during the reservation process, before your stay.
- No guests/visitors without approval prior to you booking
- No loud music in the apartment or on the terrace between 22:00 and 09:00. Parties are not allowed.
- If you use the terrace, please be aware that their are people living next to you. Be considerate and keep the noise down to an acceptable level. No loud talking or music after 10PM.
- Please do the dishes before you check-out!
Any violation of these house rules may result in the host claiming the security deposit!
This apartment has been my home for nearly ten years and i want you to feel it is your home for as long as you are staying.
Excellent séjour ! :-)
Situation idéale : 10 minutes à pied de la Grand Place et métro au pied de l'immeuble. Très bon accueil, hôte très sympathique et appartement conforme au descriptif.
Bref à recommander !!
Hans was very welcoming from the start. He was understanding and willing to wait for us as our plane arrived later into Brussels that evening we met him at the apartment.
The apartment was perfect for 4 people, and clean. It also has working heaters for the colder days, hot water to take showers with, and over all very comfortable stay. The apartment was beautifully decorated, and exactly like the pictures provided on Airbnb.
It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the city center from the apartment. Hans provided us with a map and information to help us maneuver around the city. He gave us AWESOME tips on where to find excellent cuisine.
Over all, we enjoyed our stay.
Top appartement: leuke inrichting, goede bedden, schoon, met een top lokatie en van alle gemakken voorzien. Daarnaast was Hans een fijne verhuurder met zeer goede tips voor leuke restaurantjes in de buurt.
Zeker een aanrader!
Ευρύχωρο, μόνο δέκα λεπτά με τα πόδια από το κέντρο. Αναλογία ποιότητας-κόστους πολύ καλή!
Hans was friendly en accommodating, really took the time to explain the ins and out of the appartement as well as the POI's in the close neighborhood.
We were visiting a photo fair in Tour & Taxis and we could actually walk to it, so great location.
If you park your car downstairs your driving skills are tested to the max, since it is quite small, like every underground parking spot in Brussels. However, when you have managed to park you car, you'll find that you are parked in the most safest parking lots of Brussels. Why? Find out for yourself ;-)
Don't forget to grab a pizza at the nearby Le Belle Équipe, very cosy little place and with pizza;s you have never tasted before, recommended (****), but don't go in with a rush, because they take their time getting you the best...
There is also excellent coffee at 'De Walvis' across the street ...
All in all very nice 'multicultural' neighborhood which has a vibe that strongly resembles East-Berlin, and I mean that in the best possible way.
We had a fantastic weekend at Hans' beautiful apartment. Clean, comfortable, and in a great location (literally right outside the metro stop). Smooth check-in and friendly introduction to the city. I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
Que rajouter de plus aux commentaires déjà très élogieux, précédemment laissés par les personnes ayant séjourné dans l'appartement de Hans.
Une seule chose peut-être : confirmer que tout est effectivement parfait, un appartement merveilleusement bien situé, agréable et confortable à souhait et surtout un hôte Hans et un ami Stefan avec lesquels nos quelques échanges furent amicaux et conviviaux.
Un appartement et un hôte à ne pas oublier.
Welcome to Brussels! I hope that my colorful home wil allow you to enjoy your stay in Brussels. It is spacious and comfortable and from there, you can easily access al the touristic and cultural landmarks of the capital.
