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.
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 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!
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.
Fantastic! Ideal for five persons. Everything was clean and the whole flat was very bright thanks to the big windows. The equipment was fine. The flat is close to the city centre and it has a metro station right in front of the house. I would highly recommend this flat.
L'appartement est propre, lumineux, bien décoré et fidèle à sa description. Bloquée dans les embouteillages durant 2 heures à l'arrivée, je n'ai pas pu rencontrer Hans. Ce dernier s'est néanmoins montré attentif et disponible pour nous permettre d'accéder à l'appartement de suite, grâce au chaleureux soutien de son ami.
Localisation idéale, à quelques minutes à pied du centre historique de Bruxelles. Le parking souterrain est un bonus précieux.
En bref, je recommande vivement ce logement, qui a largement contribué à faire de ce séjour un moment inoubliable !
Great apartment - Hans was super nice and helpful, recommended local places to go. Check in was smooth even though we were running behind schedule.
Hans is perfect, the description is excactly as the apartment is, and the neighbours is quiet, very central and charming near the canal and with the metro station in front of your door.
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.
