The Space


Rent the small room (+/- 10 m2) in this 2 bedrooms flat, housed in a pure 70's style building called HELIPORT (read its great and glorious history below) on highest floors - You will be sharing the flat with me.

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, eating corner 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 & Taxis, a mixed zone shared by theaters, clubs, expos, leisure and new homes.

Guest Access

The Neighborhood

A stone trough form the busy center with easy access to all parts of the city via bikes, metro, tram bus and train to the rest of Belgium or airport...

Getting Around

Other Things to Note

Rubbish is sorted and a room is dedicated to it on -1 right opposite to the elevator, making it easy to dispose. Only glass need to go to the container, but you can leave them in the flat and I can take care of them.

House Rules

Simple respect of the flat and the neighbors, leaving the place clean and tidy as it was at your arrival is always appreciated. A full cleaning of the flat gets done professionally once a week.

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

It is my home and I really like it, hope you do also and respect it as it was yours ;-)

When you brake or empty something, keep me informed.
