Our stay in Julie apartment is a great experience to us. The apartment is quite strategic as it is really close to the MIDI train station as well as not too far away from the city centre. I would totally stay here again If I visit brussels in the future.William July 2015

Julie was wonderful and so understanding when we had transportation issues before check in. She also left great travel materials and her apartment was spotless! We really enjoyed our stayShannon July 2015
We had a lovely stay at Julie's apartment - it was well equipped with everything you need and had a great view above the markets. Julie was very helpful and provided a range of folders with information about the city.Brooke July 2015
Lovely house - beautiful as you see in the pictures - very well equipped and clean! Julie was very kind to give us every information we needed. On the other side, the apartment was exposed on the flea market, so there were some unpleasant noises in the first morning and the staircases to reach it very restricted (reach the 4th floor with the luggages was a feat)!Giuliana August 2015
Julie was a lovely host. She made us feel very welcome and stressed the fact that we were to use the apartment as if it was our own. She even supplied a us with a few local beers! Julie was very available/accessible before and throughout the trip. Pros: - Location is awesome. Short distance to Brussels old town and also Brux Midi train station (which made days out to other cities easy). Marolles is a lively district with plenty of variation in shops and places to eat, nearby bars and pubs stocked amazing drinks, you certainly don't feel out of the way. - Huge windows allowing an amazing view over Marolles, with the palace of justice on the hill and the flee market right below. - Pictures very accurate, tastefully decorated and homely feel. Cons: Julie covers all of the tiny niggles in her welcome guide so make sure to read it!! - It seems that the flee market is active every day. It can be heard very early in the morning and is loud, especially during set up. Julie supplies earplugs, but simply closing the windows eliminates 90% of the sound. - We found that the fridge/freezer leaked, even with the doors securely closed. Our food was totally fine and fridge worked perfectly, water just somehow gathered at the bottom, so we had to mop it up daily. Apart from that, as previously mentioned, everything is covered in the guide. ... We had an amazing time in Belgium visiting Antwerp and Bruges as well as enjoying the delights of Brussels. Knowing that we had Julie's apartment to return to at the end of the day made the trip even better. Thank you very much Julie!Morgan & Beth July 2016
Julie met me downstairs and helped me take my luggage up to the apartment. She had some snacks waiting for me in the apartment.John June 2015

As you first walk into the city of Brussels, you'll experience a town full of history, politics, and modern day business. Currently, Brussels is the de facto capital of the European Union, and it is the largest city and capital of Belgium. With a population of 1.2 million people in the city itself and approximately 1.8 million people in the metropolitan area, it's no surprise that the city is a bustling hotspot for those who travel to Europe.
The city is officially bilingual, with all street names, most advertisements, and other signs in both Dutch and French. There has been a shift to French over the last two centuries. In addition, many people in the area speak English, as well. This makes the city easy to get around in with any language.
The city itself combines modern and historical aspects perfectly. Not only is the city still in touch with its origins, but it has become one of the biggest business hubs in the world. Because of this, you'll find everything you want to do, from visiting museums such as the Magritte Museum to eating at the Music Village.
Whether you're headed to Brussels for business or pleasure, make sure you take some time to enjoy the unique feel of the city and its treasures. The city itself offers a number of fun and quirky options, such as the Comic Strip museum, for those looking to kick back and relax. The Museum of the City shows you Brussels' history, including exhibits that show and discuss each aspect of how the city has grown and changed over the centuries.
Buildings and monuments such as the Manneken Pis, Brussels’ most famous statue, pepper the city. Grand Place is on the UNESCO World Heritage list and is a beautiful and intriguing square in the city.
Art and culture is important to the inhabitants of Brussels. Visitors see this evidenced in the many art festivals, museums, and unique eateries that saturate the city. In February, you'll find the Affordable Art Fair and Foire du livre for those who love books and art of all types. The Brussels Summer Festival happens in August and features a number of artistic exhibitions, from theatre to music, and even street animations. Food lovers can enjoy the Eat! Brussels Festival in September, a festival that features Brussels’ beloved restaurants and food types for all palates.
The climate is temperate all year-long, making Brussels a fun city to visit no matter your travel time. Summers get warm with an average high of 73 degrees Fahrenheit in July and an average low of 33 degrees Fahrenheit in January.
No matter the season, no matter the century, Belgium's capital city's combination of history, culture, art, and decorum continues to capture the imagination of visitors both near and abroad.
