As the shops are all closed at night, you are guaranteed a peaceful night's rest.
Farmers Market every Sunday morning around the nearby early 20th century town hall. Recommended restaurants in easy walking distance, grocery stores across the street open until 20h everyday if you feel like cooking for yourself.

Je parle francais.
No pets (small dogs possibly - ask me!)
I appreciate it if you leave your outdoor shoes in the hallway.
If you arrive/return after 11pm, please do not make a lot of noise in the stairwell as I have very young and very old neighbours who will be disturbed by noise.
My sister and I booked Cheryl Cooper's room for two nights while staying in Brussels to celebrate our birthday. Cheryl is absolutely the most wonderful host you could ask for. It will be hard being so satisfied with any other airbnb after staying with her. She sets the bar high! Thanks to her our birthday and experience in Brussels was that much better.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
Madame Cheryl COOPER est une charmante personne, calme, discrète serviable et accueillante.
Pour nous reposer de nos journées de touristes, Il nous fallait bien une chambre d'hôtes avec une literie impeccable !
C'était perfect !
Propreté, environnement sympa, calme et proche du centre de Bruxelles ...
Vraiment notre choix fut le bon !
Merci à Cheryl pour avoir été l'une des responsables de nos super vacances !
Brigitte et Dominique.
Cheryl is a great woman and we very much enjoyed staying with her. She's a pleasure in conversation and a perfect hostess!
The room is big and spacious. It's a little cold at night in the middle of winter, but that was not a problem as Cheryl provided an electric heater to complement us.
Good breakfast with great coffee, just a pleasure all around!
Excellent visit. The bedroom is spacious, and collects light through a large window. There's a large, solid table for use as a desk, with fast WiFi. The bed is also large, and comfortable. Cheryl made me feel at home, and was up for a chat on any number of subjects, whether it be about travel, Brussels, or the Human Condition. I was grateful for the Continental breakfast, with items chosen with a discriminating eye and experienced nose.
It's a very pleasant apartment that is directly inside a little center / shopping district. The bus is only a minute walk away... so you can be in the Centrum in short order. I recommend the location and the host.
Cheryl was a delightful informative hostess who treated us with warmth and enthusiasm.
Wish we had met her at the beginning of our Brussel's stay as she
would have shared some missed highlights with us.
Andy and I highly recommend her bright and spacious place to others.
The apartment is about 25 minutes on the 95 bus from town. The room was clean and spacious. Nice small group of shops including supermarket nearby. Cheryl was a great host and provided travel info. Hard to fault.
I have to begin by saying that Cheryl is an incredibly delightful person. She was such a marvelous host, and treated us more like special guests than temporary tenants.
We stayed only one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. the guest room in the apartment is quite spacious (and super clean), with a large King bed, desk and closets. We were allowed to use the kitchen as well.
Though the apartment is not right by the downtown of Brussels its easily accessible by bus (line 95). we took this same line from Central station to arrive at the apartment which is across the street from the stop. Outside the apartment are plenty of restaurants, a super market and other small shops.
We also enjoyed a grant breakfast Cheryl prepared us in the morning, and of course the conversations we had with Cheryl were wonderful as well! Overall, we had a great experience.
