This apartment was absolutely stunning and perfect for our stay in Brussels, we only wish we could have stayed longer! The apartment has everything you would need and the space along with Antoine make you feel very much at home. It's a beautifully modern apartment that is in a very convenient location, only 5 minutes walk from the Royal Palace and gardens, and just 15 minutes walk from the city centre. If you want to stay in Brussels, stay here!
We had a great time in Brussels; the apartment is well located, very clean and comfortable. We loved the view of the gardens in the back and the fact that it is very quiet - no street noise. We also made use of the suggestions and information that was provided.
Antoine really pays attention to make you feel welcomed even if he couldn’t be there during our stay. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
The waffles were amazingly good and my daughter would love to have the recipe!
We had a great stay and enjoyed the convenient location close to the metro. The apartment was very clean and modern, everything needed for a comfortable stay. Would stay again if we return to Brussels!
Very nice apartment! Quiet, with a view of pretty little gardens. Easy walk to the metro. Stylishly furnished and probably the most well-stocked apartment I've ever stayed in. There was coffee, tea, creamer, sugar, sugar substitute, shampoo, a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, and even cotton swabs in the medicine cabinet, among other things! Antoine is a great host; he provided tons of suggestions on places to go and see (along with helpful directions) and some fantastic waffles. Very responsive as well!
Cute apartment with all of the amenities in a great location! Antoine and j were extremely helpful and accommodating! Wish I had be opportunity to meet them.
This apartment was nice and very spacious. It had a great kitchen with pots, pans, a cutting board, a large fridge, and gas burners so making breakfast or sandwiches for a picnic was easy and convenient. This made traveling on a budget very easy. It was very clean and in a very well-kept building. It is perfect for a couple or even four people traveling together.
Antoine was a great host and tried to stay in constant communication before the trip to make sure all of our questions were answered. He was also very accomodating to our arrival an departure times and even left us some Belgian waffles on the table for our arrival. The location was also very close to a metro station, some nice museums, and generally very central in Brussels. I would recommend the place to any traveller.
Charming appartment in EU district is really CHARMING. It's in walking distance to the metro station and is easily reachable to the centre. The appartment is well equipted and has everything that one can ever dream for staying in unknown place.
Antoine was super attentive and kind to all my needs though we have not met personally. He answered in advance to all my questions, so when came I felt as like at home. He also made the full guide about best places to visit and to see in Brussels. It helped a lot!
It was my first experience in travelling via Airbnb and that was GREAT START! Thank you Antoine!

About the Host, Antoine
I'm a friendly man with a very positive outlook on life.
I am an endlessly curious. I love to experience the world with eyes wide open. I never stop exploring, discovering and evolving.
Life to me is a storybook full of fascinating tales. I amass information 'on the hoof' and very little passes me by.
I always keep my mind active. I am quite refined, well educated and I like to remain totally classless. This makes it easy for me to get on with just about any sort of person. I am thought-provoking and even quite deep on occasions.
I get involved in other exciting things which keep me busy too, such as reading books, newspaper and cultural magazines, photography, video editing, theatre, music, fitness and movies.
I strongly believe a very clean, secure, welcoming feel, and comfortable house is of paramount importance to travellers who don't want to break their bank account!
I have been travelling on my own since the age of 14!
When you stay at my place I will make you feel a member of my family as my life's golden rule is to treat others as you wish to be treated!
I am always on an adventure. Enjoy hearing about people's travels and life styles. It stands to good reason why you would enjoy staying in my home: it is a warm and caring place.
I look forward to meeting you and show the true Belgian hospitality with a Belgian French fries taste!
