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, as smoking is not allowed inside.

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 tastes and budgets.
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!

Hans has a fantastic apartment very close the centre of Brussels. It is extremely bright and provides you with a homely atmosphere. My mother especially enjoyed watering the plants.
I was also impressed by the detailed instructions provided by Hans at the home, with some great recommendations of restaurants in the area.
We've really enjoyed our stay at Hans' apartment. Hans is an amazing host, he made us feel very welcome and his detailed directions on getting to the place were extremely useful. The apartment is bright, large and very clean. Everything was as described and in working order. The location is within walking distance of the old city, and although is't not right downtown it is easily accessible by Metro. I would not hesitate to stay here again if I ever visit Brussels in the future.
My two-night stay at Hans' by now very familiar place (I believe, it was the third time I stayed there) was great. It was during a heatwave, and Hans so very kindly provided me with a fan, which was a life-saver and kept the bedroom cool enough for a comfortable sleep. He was also very accommodating regarding my departure arrangements and helped out with a few other things along the way, which meant that I felt very much looked after. I strongly recommend this listing and the host and will hopefully stay there again when next in Brussels.
The apartment is spacious, well-stocked with the essentials, and in a convenient location. Hans is one of the more peaceful, helpful, and kind people you are likely to meet, ever. He provided us with a lot of great information about Brussels and made us feel at home.
We found the apartment quite easily thanks to Hans' great directions. He was very welcoming, and made us feel at home. The apartment is just as shown, and so nice to have 2 bathrooms and the deck area. The location is very easy for the metro, an easy 5 min. walk to St. Catherines's area, groceries, resturants, etc. We also could walk to the city center instead of the metro. We had a great stay!
