Yes, the room is quite small, but it is in a spacious and bright apartment in front of the Porte de Hal, between the international train station Gare du Midi and the city center.
The apartment is in a great shape, with double vitrage and wooden floors, fully equipped. The rooms is essential but cosy.
The neighborhood is ideal for all types of personalities; just discover the many possibilities that it offers; from the shops across the street to the trendy bar in front of the apartment, you can also easily get to Parvis de St. Gilles, filled with charming bars and restaurants, and discover the antique shops and the flea market in the area surrounding Place Jeu de Balle.
As far as what the nightlife concerns, choose between the Fuse, popular disco within five minutes from here, or get lost in the international jungle of the city center.
And if you don't feel like walking, metro, bus and tram stops are just around the corner.
And the cherry on top, you can start your historical tour around Brussels by visting the museum in the Porte de Hal tower, right across the street.
Everything was good!
The room is little but really confortable! The flat really look as in pictures and it's really nice and really well furnished!
During my stay I meet only Cesare for just few minutes ('cause I was always hurryng) but we had nice talk and he is really friendly.
To conclude... As the title say (and I can confirm)... "Small room in a great flat, try it!"
By the way... Thank you Cesare for everything!
Cesare and Peter were wonderful hosts, really lovely to talk to and had great recommendations for places to go and things to see. They were also really flexible with my arrival and departure times, which I really appreciated. The bed is also terrifically comfortable and the location is really convenient if you're arriving/departing from the Midi station.
Staying with Cesare and Peter has been a delight! They are very friendly, funny and open. Cesare was a big help with getting to know the city and it's hotspots and if your lucky you might even get to taste Cesares Sicilian cooking skills :)
The apartment is very good located right next to the metro station with all the important metro lines. It is a very big, open apartment with lots of light, great interior design and a wonderful view on the Port de Hal.
The room was small, but the big living room and kitchen makes up for it. The bed was very comfortable!
Spending time at Cesare and Peter's place will not only mean having a good, nice and clean location to visit Brussels, it will also mean leaving with a lot of good memories and new friends....I highly recommend staying at their place when visiting Brussels!
Had a really great stay with Cesare and Peter...the apartment is only 10 minute's or so walk from Midi station (great for Eurostar, Thalys, ICE, etc,. etc,.) and stylish, super-clean. It's in a great place for exploring the city on Metro or Foot...which you should do, as Brussels is an engaging, eclectic, manageable city. The room has a really comfy bed and I had a great night's sleep.
The guys are both really hospitable and accommodating and made me feel very welcome. Plenty of tips on what to see and do.
Would definitively choose to stay with them again if I'm in Brussels! So thanks very much!!
I had an amazing time staying with Cesare and Peter. They were great hosts that made me feel very welcome in their home. They're home was lovely and very clean. Cesare and Peter are great people and I would recommend them to anyone!
Cesare and Peter are super nice! the room and apartment are so clean and they made my check in/out so easy (Cesare welcomed me when i arrived). We had a great talk, they recommended some places to go (u better trust their recommendations, they know what they are talking about) and always ready to answer all of my questions. During my stay, i didn't have any issue with the noise from outside and the bed IS comfortable. Thank you for making my first experience with airbnb to be so perfect! :)
The unit is super clean and artistically furnished. Casare and Peter were both great hosts and helped me whenever I need it. I strongly recommmend this place.
Peter and Cesare are great! The apartment is in a perfect location, very clean, and nice. Peter and Cesare are wonderful hosts, making sure that you are as comfortable and happy as possible. They are really great guys, and I would very much recommend saying with them.
I feel like I could stay here forever! Yes, it could get quite noisy at night, but when you've spent the day walking, you'd be dead tired at night to be much affected by it. The bed, though, was too comfortable. It made me not want to leave it and explore the city in the morning :p. Cesare and Peter are really great hosts. Always warm and friendly, and eager to help. Now I really need to find an excuse to come back to Brussels! :)
Cesare and Peter are delightfully friendly helpful hosts. The room is indeed only as wide as the bed, but for one person for one night it was fine. The location's great - excellent bars and restaurants in easy walking distance, and the view out the lounge room window is terrific.
