About This Listing
Discover Brussels from one of its chiquest neighborhoods: the Avenue Louise, Ixelles Lakes and La Cambre Abbey and Forest.
You'll enjoy your private room with 140 cm comfortable sofa bed and very nice views over Brussels! The bathroom we share.
Although the apartment is on the residential part of Av Louise, there are shops and restaurants nearby. A small supermarket (which also opens on sundays) is just opposite the apartment. A 20 minute walk on Av Louise will get you to the Porte de Louise passing the famous fashion designer shops. Further walk down the Av Toison d'Or or Boulevard de Waterloo will take you downtown to the Royal Palace into the historical city center with the amazing Grand Place.
The Jardin du Roi and the Abbaye de La Cambre are very near, but if you're a real fan of green you can walk for 10 minutes and get into Brussels largest park: le Bois de la Cambre (La Cambre Forest). Lots of jogging opportunities here!
If running is not enough: there is a ladies only gym just opposite my apartment, and a regular gym at 15 mins walking.
You will enjoy your private room with a comfortable double sofabed (140 cm) and shared bathroom in my two bedroom apartment on the Avenue Louise (Ixelles/Elsene) near the abbey and the Royal Gardens (Jardins du Roi).
I'm not offering any breakfast but there's lots of places to have it nearby and of course you are free to use my kitchen for breakfast. The fridge is also available if you want to stock things fresh and you have coffee and tea provided in the room with a kettle, so you can make it first thing in the morning.
There's a small supermarket just opposite the house, and on saturday and sunday morning there's a very nice food market on Flagey (5 minute walk).
Interaction with Guests
I am living in the apartment and will mostly be present. I'll be happy to help you and guide to make your stay and visit as comforting and enjoyable as possible !
Have a walk to the lively nearby neighborhoods Flagey or Chatelain, passing the Ixelles lakes, art nouveau houses or Brussels nicest parks.
A 10 minutes tramride (or 20 minute walk) will get you into the city center. However, there's also very nice and vibrant "quartiers" like Flagey and Chatelain that are only a couple of minutes walking away from the apartment.
THESE ARE MY FAVOURITES
- a morning walk to the Flagey market
- an afternoon stroll down Avenue Louise into down town
- a walk into Brussels La Cambre forest (10 mins walking distance) or if i'm lazy: the very nice 13th century La Cambre Abbey (2 mins walk)
- the Brussels Art Nouveau nouveau walk (which you can start behind the corner)
Public transport: TRAM 93 and 94 stops in front of my apartment and connects with metro Louise which will get you in minutes to Brussels Midi Railway station (Thalys-Eurostar-TGV). A very nice walk into the historical city centre of Brussels will take you about 25 mins. By tram it will take you about 5 minutes.
If you come by car: parking in front is charged on weekdays and saturdays from 9am to 6pm. Surrounding streets have a 2h free parking policy (with parking disks). Free parking space inside the city of Brussels is becoming more and more difficult. Contact me if you want to have more information about parking outside the city.
Public bike hire: (very easy and cheap way to move inside the city !) (website hidden), station is 50m from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
Please let me know what time you would like to check in. On saturday and sunday the check in time is flexible, but if you want to arrive in a certain timelapse please let me know before you book. During weekdays it might be only possible after 6pm.
Please respect the following rules to make sure we both enjoy your stay:
- respect other guests, neighbours and residents by not making to much noise - especially late in the evening - and keeping it clean and tidy
- Please don't loose your keys, if you do I will have to charge you 50 EUR for getting them replaced
- Except for the fridge, kitchen use is a bit difficult but can be discussed (especially for long term stays)
Quartier agréable et calme. L étang tout proche est vraiment propice à la détente. La chambre est satisfaisante. L' hôte est tres sympathique.
The flat is nice and clean, the location is good. Jonathan was very organized with the orientations, and also helpful. Easy and uncomplicated!
Jonathan was extremely helpful and very responsive in his reply. His house was great! Clean and its a relatively quiet neighbourhood so you can get some good sleep. Most importantly, he has helped me figuring out where I can store my bicycle while I'm staying at his place. As for visiting Brussels, he has tons of books and leaflets for you to look at. That definitely helps me pin down where to walk and cycle to.
Jonathan is a friendly and helpful host. The communication was quick and easy, and both the flat and the location is great and perfectly correspond to the description. We had a really nice time staying at his place.
The description of the apartment and of the area were both very accurate. My friend and I had no problems finding it, by following Jonathan's indications. The location is superb, Avenue Louise is definitely the best place to stay ! It is a bit far from the city centre, but within easy reach with the 93/94 trams.
Jonathan was a very welcoming and friendly host. He speaks very good English, which is a plus! He responded very quickly to all my messages and inquiries. He gave us very good directions to get to his apartment, and he recommended us a couple of places around the area where to serve a nice dinner. He gave us a very useful map of Brussels/Bruges/Antwerp, and also borrowed us some useful guides to read in order to plan our journey- very handy when you want to find out more about Belgium. I definitely recommend him, he is trustworthy and welcoming, and he will make your stay in Brussels really pleasant ! Both myself and my friend spent a very good break, and most of it thanks to Jonathan!
Jonathan was a really good host,friendly and helpful. We totally recommend him :)
Although we didn't see each other much, he was so kind to me. He replied my messages quickly and tried me make myself comfortable as much as he can. I liked the apartment. The atmosphere was nice. I didn't spend much of my time in the place but overall i had a good experience. I hope next time i will find more opportunity to spend my time with him.
