Close to the European Institutions, the 'Park Royal', the 'Palais Royal', about a 15 minute walk away from the historic center, a metro station 'Madou' from which you can go within seven minutes to the 'Gare centrale' and the 'Gare du Midi'.
This calm and bright apartment is situated in a typical 'Maison de Maître', which means a typical 19th century townhouse in Brussels with high ceilings. An experienced architect renovated this apartment with a trendy Flemish touch.
When entering the apartment you will find a hall, a toilet and a bathroom with a shower (typical Belgian black stone on the floor and stained glasses).
The fully equipped kitchen in is a bright main room (22 sqm). There is a bedroom with a real bed and a cozy tv-room with a sofa bed. This room is perfect for relaxing on the sofa, working, listening to music or watching tv (DVD player available). Within a minute this room can also be turned up into an extra bedroom thanks to the sofa bed.
In these rooms there is a wooden floor (oak) and two dubble-glazed windows with curtains.
The kitchen contains everything you need for catering: fridge, deep freezer, gas cooker, sink, a coffee machine (coffee and tea included), microwave, traditional oven, a dishwasher and all kind of basic kitchen ware and utensils.
The bed has been carefully selected to be extra comfortable: good innerspring mattress completed with a duvet (adaptable thickness) and two kinds of pillows to match perfectly with your sleeping wishes.
The bathroom contains a shower and a sink (old stained glasses on the walls).The toilet is separated from the bathroom (but in the apartment!).
The location of the flat is very convenient for travelers, businessmen, trails or a group of four people.
The South Station ('Gare du Midi') and the Central Station ('Gare Centrale') are easy to reach thanks the underground (within 7 minutes).
It is very close to Place Madou and 5 minute walk from both Arts - Loi and Madou metro stops. These two metro stations connect you to all lines (1/5 and 2/6) which can take you to pretty much any location in the city.
From Bruxelles Midi train station, there are shuttles to the airports (Brussels National Airport and Brussels South - Charleroi Airport).
It's also an excellent starting point to discover Brussels or the surrounding of Brussels (via underground, train, tram or bus) as well as the European District.
The European Commission, the European Council and the European Parliament are 5 minutes walk away. There's even an automatic bike rental station there!

The listing for this apartment was very accurate, and the apartment itself was perfect for a few days stay in Brussels. Very clean, very beautiful! Traditional Belgian waffles were waiting for us when we arrived - the best way to start our trip! J was in touch with us frequently before we arrived to offer suggestions and tips for Brussels, and helped us get acquainted with Brussels before we even arrived. He had left out guidebooks for us to look through. Quiet, residential neighborhood, roughly 20 minutes from city center. A great area outside of the busy city - only downside was that it seemed that most restaurants and bars are in the city center. We had a wonderful stay and would most definitely go back!
Joffrey was a wonderful host! Despite the fact that we was not able to meet us, he made it very easy to get into the apartment and his mom left us fresh, homemade waffles! Joffrey got a taxi for us to get to the airport and left us more than enough information about Brussels with recommendations for restaurants, shopping, museums... everything. The walk to the Grand Place was about 15 minutes and perfectly easy, even with two small kids. The apartment is cozy and very clean in an old, renovated building. It was a great place to stay!
Joeffrey did a great job at making a welcoming environment! He provided detailed descriptions of various places and things to do in Brussels. He was also consistently checking in and making sure our stay was a comfortable as possible. The listing was exactly what the pictures show, very clean and well maintained. Great location to different parts of the city.
Tout simplement parfait!!! Je pense que notre escapade Bruxelloise représente exactement ce que doit être une expérience Airbnb!
Des hôtes aux petits soins, pleins de conseils et de bons plans (merci encore de nous avoir indiqué la rue Blaes!!) et un appartement, rénové avec beaucoup de goût, très agréable et parfaitement situé pour découvrir Bruxelles! Nous le recommandons avec force et lorsque nous retournerons à Bruxelles, nous ne nous poserons pas de question, nous irons chez Joffrey les yeux fermés! Faites en de même!
Accueil et appartement très sympathiques, je le recommande vivement!
The place was as perfect as described, just a minutes away from the subway and a 10 minute walk from the city (website hidden) is beautiful and so Joffrey's apartment, with him being always attendant and seeing for whatever need it aroused despite him having a personal problem.
We can only be thankful for him making our stay in Brussels far better than ever expected.
Thanks and regards!!
Mariana and José Luis

Je recommande cet appartement les yeux fermés.

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!
