Independent flat in a renovated small XIX century house, on a lively square, with a breathtaking view on Brussels neo-babylonian Palais de Justice.

The space

On the -sometimes- sunny side of a square below Brussel's neo-babylonian "Palais de Justice", right between popular Marolles flea market, elegant Sablon antiques market and Rond point Louise (5min.), in walking distance of Grand Place, Art Museum, Central Station... (10min.).

Independent flat on the first floor of a thoroughly renovated 19th century house. (I live on the second)
In the 4by6 dining - sitting room, you 'll have your own well equipped kitchen (so no breakfast is served, but coffee, tea, milk, fruit juice and some supplies for the first morning -butter, cheese, jam, cereals- will be available).
Very small bedroom with two standard sized beds. One adult or two children might, on arrangement, be accommodated on the convertible sofa -120x200- in the sitting room. En-suite bathroom with fullsize bathtub and shower, laundry washer and drier.(toilet is separate).

AT NOON, you might enjoy a meal at the "Restaurant Bio Le POINT DE CHUTE", downstairs. The friendly manager always knows to trace me if you check in earlier than appointed.


Warning; Saturday evenings at neighboring Havanna Club can be loud; but then you could have a drink.
Note: rather dull cableTV. and a few local chains on DVBT; And of course DVDs. At last, I've got a decent WIFI

Bernard was a great host. He took us to a cafe and showed us on a map where all the hot destinations were. He was very knowledgeable about the city. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Bernard's place was very nice. He was very easy to communicate with, and met us at the flat for check in and check out. He had plenty of recommendations, and even walked us to a good lunch spot upon arrival.

Excellent host!!!!, Bernard communicates with you before we arrive in giving us tips on how to get to the loft, as well as what are the best things to do while in Brussels. His loft was at walking distance to just about everything. He is also very flexible with our check-in and check-out times. The loft has everything that you need for a (URL HIDDEN) was perfect for us.

Great space and centrally located near Metro, restaurants, shops and near palace of justice. Bernard was such a great host who gave great suggestions and made sure I had a city map to get around. Full kitchen, washer&dryer and beautiful view. One note is that there is a night club called Havana up the street that gets loud and you can hear it from the bathroom. I only heard it on Saturday night. Besides that had an amazing time!

Response from Bernard:
Thanks, Linda, few guests ever mention the view, which is what made me buy the house. And sorry about the noise, my ad indeed warns about loud Friday and Saturday nights... It has been a pleasure hosting you in Brussels, I hope you'll have another opportunity to visit... Bernard H.

Bernard's place is wonderful. We were able to walk everywhere from the flat because it was in a great location. The flat itself is very charming and had everything you could want, and we especially loved that there was a washer and drawer. Though he was gone for most of our stay, Bernard was very communicative and was there to greet us and say goodbye. Overall, we had a fantastic experience here.

Thanks, Maddy. I regretted having so much to do at my mother's house on the countryside that I could not share my favourite Brussels' walks with you. Bernard H.
