The Space

'Your home away from home .... and more'

Please read the important notes and FAQ BEFORE booking the apartment.

This charming unique, spacious 110 sqm one bedroom apartment is located on the second floor in a 19th century renovated townhouse above an art gallery in the heart of Brussels art and chocolate district: The Grand Sablon. The apartment has its original Art Nouveau stain glass windows, sculptured high ceilings and woodwork, 2 marble fireplaces, a modern fully equipped kitchen with a small balcony, a spacious bathroom with a Jacuzzi and a bedroom with skylight and plenty of closets. The apartment has been decorated by art and antique dealers and is perfect for those who like to travel in style and luxury.

Breakfast and dining

In your apartment you’ll find free coffee and tea but we do not serve breakfast. There are several bakeries and stores nearby, so you can prepare your own breakfast in the apartment if you like, but the Sablon area is known for good eating and here are several places in the neighborhood where you can discover more exciting choices than coffee and bread. There is the famous bakery the Pain Quotidien which is on the Grand Sablon and is great for farm style home made rolls and breads, though pricy. There is Snack Aimé which is one of our favorites and it is just around the corner at the end of Rollebeek street (one of Brussels oldest street dating back to 1564 ) which is a pedestrian street and there you'll find delicious homemade fruit tarts and wonderful hero sandwiches, soups and salads all very reasonable priced. Of course you should try the croissants and pastries at Wittamer, delicious and very pricy. If you like sampling some of Belgium’s goodies, then the Grand Sablon have some of the best gourmet shops in the world - like chocolatiers Pierre Marcolini, Whittamer, Neuhaus and Godiva. Not to mention some of the best dining in Europe - Les Brigitinnes (by far our favourite restaurant), Au Vieux Saint Martin, Lola, Comme Chez Soi are nearby.

Ideal for those who like a romantic weekend in the luxury of a 19th century Hotel de Maitre. Only few steps away from the gay neighborhood.

Guest Access

The apartment is private and is only for the two of you. However in the building there is a shared laundry room, which you can use free of charge.

The Neighborhood

A few minutes walk away is the daily flea market (marché aux puces) or the exuberant Sunday South Market (food and clothes) at the South (Midi/Zuid) Station

Getting around

Parking and public transport

Apart from parking in the street (pay meters) there is the Albertine parking only 50 meters away. (This apartment is located so central you won't really need your car).

  • Great flat in perfect area to discover Bruxelles!
    Everything ist perfect.

    April 2014
  • House was in prime location and beautifully appointed. Loved the jacuzzi tub almost as much as the cute cafés and shops nearby. Grand Place at night is a must. Ludmilla was very nice and did not charge us additional fees for linens as prior reviews stated

    April 2014
  • My fiancée and I stayed here for two nights in March.
    Pros:
    Beautiful apartment with fantastic antiques / paintings etc.
    Excellent jacuzzi bath!
    Very good location in Sablon, near to Central Station and Grand Place etc
    Comfy bed
    Wifi included
    Book full of useful tips and advice about where to eat / shop etc

    Cons:
    If you don't like hidden costs then beware. Not too clear before we booked (possible I didn't look hard enough) but when you arrive at the apartment you have to pay 70 euros for cleaning and 20 euros for linen. If you don't pay you don't get the keys!
    The linen / towels are average at best.
    The apartment is clean, but not spotless (eg some of the knives were dirty) and for 70 euros extra, you expect more.
    Also if you arrive after 1900,or if you arrive a bit later than you predict, you have to pay an extra 15 euros! So make sure the traffic is fine if you can.
    The deposit is large, but this is easily explained by the lovely items they have in the apartment.

    Verdict:
    If you are aware of extra costs etc, then this is an excellent place to stay for a few nights (or more). I would especially recommend for a romantic getaway!

  • The welcome, the location, design, cleaning, Everything was fine and professional ! Thanks !

    March 2014
  • Really nice experience at Trente's Sablon Art Nouveau flat; very nicely fit and 1st class location should you want to visit the Grand Place, Marolles, Mont des Arts, etc.. among places we'd like to recommend is the Peï & Meî restaurant on Rollebeek just a street up right to the flat.

    February 2014
  • Fantastic apartment with great jacuzzi bath! Close to grand place and some nice bars and restaurants.

    February 2014
  • My Husband and I stayed in the Rembrant Apartment for Valentines (website hidden) Apartment was Beautiful, Comfortable and Very Romantic. You are right in the thick of the city. There are Museums, Stores and Sights just minutes from the apartment. I am looking foward to staying here again on my next trip to Brussels.

    February 2014
  • My boyfriend and I stayed here last week for 3 nights as part of a little beer/chocolate indulgence trip. Ludmila, who met us at the flat, was fantastic. She doesn't speak any English but is very animated so communicating wasn't a problem at all. After hearing that we were a veggie and vegan, I was very touched when she knocked on the door 5 mins after leaving, with her mother on the phone saying, "Ludmila would like to take you both to the health food shop, so put on your shoes!"

    This is a truly lovely apartment in a nice part of town, when you're out and about it's a warming feeling to know you have a beautiful apartment to come back to. There's not much to do in Brussels, so making sure you have a nice place to stay, I would say, is very important.

    Eating chocolates in a bubbling jacuzzi with big fluffy towels waiting on the radiator is definitely my idea of a relaxing trip.
    The ONLY flaw was that the espresso machine does need servicing or replacing.

  • We were thrilled with Trente's place in the Sablon. Her communication throughout the booking and leading up to our trip was timely and highly responsive. A member of her team met us there and was flexible around an early arrival. When we had some questions around the heating, it was immediately addressed and checked to make sure all was ok. The location of the apartment could not have been better, and it is very well appointed and furnished with an impressive collection of art and fitting for the area- even better than the pictures. We were comfortable and enjoyed some great meals using the kitchen. Would come back again and have recommended to a number of people already. Thank you Trente and team!

    January 2014
  • Great stylish apartment, on a perfect location!
    The welcome by Ludmila was warm and helpful. Recommendable apartment for those who love Brussels in a passionate way!
