Loft style flat, located right in between dowtown, the canal and north station. With an incredible view over Brussels that cannot be beaten!

The Space

UP/DOWNtown BXL

The 2 bedroom flat is housed in a pure 70's style building called HELIPORT (read its great and glorious history below).

Forever in the making, ever changing space. Bits added, moved or changed here and there according to inspiration, trips and encounters...

From there you get an impressive view of Brussels, the living room opens on sunny big terrace (south) overlooking the heart of the city. The bedrooms, (one big, one small) at the back give access to a second balcony from which you can see the canal, the Royal Domain and the Atomium.

The open space has an open kitchen, dining table and great sofa.

Few minutes walk from the historic centre of Brussels (Sainte Catherine & Antoine Dansaert) full of designer's shops, restaurants and cafes is art of great theatres (National theatre, Kaaitheatre, KVS, La Monnaie, Botanique...)

Dreamed of waking up with view on the Atomium or enjoy sunrise and sunset with a glass of wine on the balconies? Then this is the place!

Free Internet wireless access.

For the shoppers, Rue Neuve, the biggest shopping street is 5 minutes away. There you will find a big supermarket, a smaller one can be found 5 minutes away.

For the higher fashion and design, Rue Antoine Dansaert is 15 min walk. A 10 minutes metro ride brings you to Louise and its chic high-street shops.

Grand Place, La Bourse, 15 minutes walk.

North Station is minutes walk away (12' train ride to the airport) and a metro station Yser is 100 meters away, (15' metro ride from South Station).

You cant beat the 360* view over Brussels.

Best place to enjoy ever changing sunset and sunrise.

Magical skies...

FOR THE SMOKERS - possible to smoke outside on the covered balconies, not in the flat. Smoking with a view and ventilated - what can be better? ;-)

HELIPORT 1 - between Utopia and History.

This area has a glorious past as a place for "rendez-vous" of the elegant society of the Capital (Leopold the 1st - first Belgian King - did here his "Joyeuse Entree" in 1830) and has lived a succession of utopias starting with the construction of the first public European train station in 1835. A century later the traveling traffic slew down and the station was closed, making room for the Second Utopia. On the occasion of the Brussels Universal Expo of 58, the Sabena Heliport is build in the city center: on March 3 1957, the first European passenger helicopter takes off until 1966. Following the closure of the heliport, this area is abandoned for a few years, but in 1989, another utopia see the day here : the only animal farm in a city center opens its door.

It is today part of North/Canal/Thurn & (email hidden) shared by theaters, clubs, expos, leisure and new homes.

  • Jean's flat is really a place with its own style yet very homely atmosphere at the same time. It was a true excitement to enjoy both sides of the city at the twi opposite balconies and both suntise and sunset together at his flat.

    Alao the location was very good, only less than 10minutes from north station on foot and less than 20minutws walking distance from the city center.

    Jean himself was a very good host who prepares all the information you may need from brochures for neayby cities and Brussels itself.

    You won't regret staying at his flat as we enjoyed very much indeed.

  • Très bel appartement, décoré avec beaucoup d'imagination , plein d'astuces et une grande poésie. Tous les matelas, y compris le canapé sont à mémoire de forme, Bravo.
    Le quartier est en dissonance avec l'appartement ( style cité) mais ce n'est en aucun génant,
    l'ambiance générale est très bonne.

  • Friendly hosting. Excellent location -- including near major tourist centers, but not too near.... Good cross-ventilation compensates for no air conditioning. Large main area, with really interesting interior decorating. How to take a place in a run-of-the-mill apartment building and make it appear to be a loft with found-object furniture? Stay here.

  • We stayed in Jean's place over Easter. It was perfect for two couples - felt spacious yet suprisingly warm and cosy. We also loved what Jean has done with the place - my girlfriend said it was like living in a piece of art! And the view from the balconies lived up to expectations.

    Jean was very easygoing and welcoming and helped us get to know Brussels - couldn't have asked for more.

  • Je recommande vivement le logement de Jean. En premier lieu parce qu'il est extrêmement bien situé (en plein centre, toutes commodités proches, transport en commun à proximité immédiate). Jean est un hôte chaleureux, sympathique et souriant qui en plus de vous accueillir dans son adorable logement à l'hygiène irréprochable, vous indique tous les lieux à visiter dans la ville (cartes mise a dispo etc..). Son appartement est tout simplement magnifique, décoré avec gout tout en restant très original. Petit détail qui a son importance pour les amoureux de la nature comme moi, au pied de l'immeuble se trouve un parc animalier..
    Je sais d'ores et déjà ou je logerai lors de mon prochain séjour Bruxellois.

    Bien à toi Jean

  • Great apartment with an amazing view over the city of Brussels. The style of the apartment was very nice and Jean was a great host giving us many tips.

  • We stayed in the apartment on the 18th floor with three little kids and loved everything. (You can not overvalue the feeling of coming HOME, utterly exhausted after long walks through a yet unknown city…)
    Jean really has a knack for interior. The apt. is perfectly equipped and offering everything you need. It features two balconies overlooking the whole city. So even if you do not want to leave the house, you can see the Atomium, Grand Place, etc. from there ;)
    The kids were elated by the urban farm just next to the building. Where they even had donkeys. Most of all Jean himself was incredibly helpful, uncomplicated and nice. I absolutely recommend him as a host!

  • Great cozy apartment, very close to the center and a walk to the train station.

    The view, the view was superb. You won't need any other panorama view of Bruxelles.

    Jean was a great host. Thank you.

  • Hôte attentionné et appartement magnifique.
    un appartement à la fois etonnant et chaleureux comme suspendu au 18 étage d'une tour.
    Vue magnifique et sens du détail.
    on en redemande....
