We are an international young couple (Spanish-belgian) who would like you to visit Brussels with the possibility to stay in a cool apartment located in the enchanting and bohemian neighborhood of Saint-Gilles, quite close to the center, next to the trendy zone of Ixelles, and at 15-minutes walk from the international train station Brussels South/Midi/Zuid
We rented a little studio upstairs before (all reviews refer to that private studio) but now we rent the whole, big, bright and very characteristic appartment that you'll have for yourself!
You will have your own apartment, a terrace, a bathroom, a beautiful kitchen that gives to the terrace, living room and apart bedroom. The place is quite big and has a lot of character (wooden floors, high ceilings)! It would be an ideal place for a couple or some friends (there are 2 extra mattresses). There are towels and sheets, so don't worry about that. The whole apartment is entirely furnished. The terrace and back are oriented south.
There are lot of connections to the public transport to the center (15-20 minutes), and it is not even 10 minutes to Place Flagey in Ixelles. But the neighborhood itself has a lot to offer: It is a great mix of cultures. At the end of our street you'll see the nice square Parvis de Saint-Gilles with lots of cool bars and restaurants. You can drink good coffee or beers, watch hipsters, eat Vietnamese, practice your Portuguese or just see the variety of Brussels crowd shop at the daily outdoor market.
And of course we'll help you with everything, maps, transports, advices and a lot of information about the city!
We speak English, Spanish, Dutch, French, and ein bisschen Deutsch.
We hope you'll enjoy your time here :)
If you smoke you always can do it on the big terrace! Don't worry about the check-out schedule, we will always work out a convenient solution!
Rasmus welcomed us in a very friendly manner, along with two belgian beers and some nice suggestions of bars and coffee places in the neigborhood we all tried and liked!
The private room was perfect and cosy.
The location is very cute and young, althought just a little bit away from the city center. But it is always nice to be far from the tourists :-)
I would highly recommend Elisa and Rasmus' little studio!
Elisa is a great host - responding quickly and providing helpful information including maps & tips for travelers new to Brussels! The room is small, but comfortable and warm, and with all the basics you need - plus a lovely little balcony to enjoy your morning coffee! Located near a metro station, and only a short walk from Brussels's main train station it's easy to find, and was perfect for our short stay in the city. Thank you to Elisa and her partner for all your help during our stay!
Elisa was very welcoming. The apartment is in a good location- within walking distance to the city center and different kinds of markets. We only stayed the first night of our two night stay in Brussels due to circumstances outside of Elisa's control. She was very understanding and helpful during the process.
The room is exactly as described, easy to find from the metro and easy to get to from gare du (website hidden) is a pleasant 20 minute or so walk into brussels centre from the flats location. Rasmus and Elisa waited up to let me in despite the fact I arrived pretty late. The room is well furnished and the shower room is well equipped with shower gels, shampoo and towels.
The apartment is small, but welcoming and comfortable. Elisa was very flexible on our check-in time and it was no problem when we were a few minutes late due to trains. The building was easy to find and in a great location. Thanks for a great stay!
Very nice room close to central Brussel. The room had everything we needed and Elisa is very helpfull. We didn't have time to explore the city, but next time we would definately go for this place again!
We do love travel and we use to do it a lot, thats why we know how important it is to find a nice place to stay where you feel like at home and to have a friendly and helpfull host. We use aribnb as travellers and we always have enjoyed the experience, so we would like that the people who stay in our place could have such a pleasure time as we would like to!!
Apart for travelling, I like get to know people from different cultures and countries, literature, art and cinema, and have friends all around the world!
