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.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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 !

The Neighborhood

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)

Getting around

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). For free parking space you have to drive a little further. Ask me for details !

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.

  • Jonathan est un hôte très accueillant, serviable et discret. Il sait aussi être disponible pour répondre à la moindre de vos attentes. L'appartement et la chambre sont très agréables dans un quartier un peu éloigné du centre mais facilement accessible par le tram. Excellent séjour et chambre à recommander.

  • Jonathan was an excellent host! He was very welcoming and helpful, and is in general a very nice guy. He left plenty of maps and other resources in my room and helped me with bus schedules and with planning which parts of the city I should see.

    The apartment is very nice as well! The bed, though it is a pull-out sofa bed, is very comfortable. The view from the room is very nice. The location of the apartment is quite good. Although it's not right in the heart of the tourist district, it is within walking distance of the major attractions. There's even a lift in the building!

  • Jonathan (email hidden) , happy to answer questions and make suggestions. The accomodation was as described with good public transport links. The area is very pleasant with interesting restaurants within easy walking distance and the access to the centre convenient. Nearby Flagey worth walking to. There is at times some noisy traffic- a neighbour has a ferrari and the noise echoes upwards but it is only going to be a problem to someone who is very sensitive to external noise. First visit to Brussels enjoyable-despite having my pockets picked !!
