If you have a car: you can reach the freeway to Brussels (E19) in 5 minutes. Street parking is easy to find (and it is free from 19:00pm till 9:00am, on Sundays and Public Holidays. If you prefer to park your car in a covered space, there is a cheap underground public parking (Vinci Parking Nationale Bank) in 50 meters.
These are the rates:
4u - 24h: €7,5
This is the TOTAL price. So for example if you park 3 hours, you pay €6. If you pay anywhere between 4 and 24 hours the rate is €7,5. This parking is subsidized by the city, that's why the rate is just 7,5 euros if you leave your car for 4 hours up to 24 hours. Rate by the month is 140 euro per month.

I loved Serge's place!
Awesome apartment, awesome location, awesome host. The apartment was clean and well-kept, stocked with basic needs and full of amenities: great shower & bath, kitchen, ipod station, washer/dryer etc. Serge was always very responsive and helpful. Although he was out of town during my stay, getting a hold of him was no problem at any time. A great stay!
