We enjoyed a relaxing Brussels neighborhood stay at Stefano's apartment over the New Year. We wanted to stay in a quiet neighborhood, do a bit of blogging over the holidays, pretend to be a local for a week, and also take day trips around Belgium. There were supermarkets a short walk away as well as lots of restaurants to choose from. A tram or bus ride can take you to Midi train station or central Brussels and you can walk to nearby places as we like to do while on vacation. If it's your first time to Brussels you may prefer to be more central, but we had visited before and wanted a more authentic visit.
The apartment was clean, spacious, and comfortable with a large bed, cozy living room, and fully-stocked kitchen. He even left us space in the kitchen and in the bedroom closet for our stuff. We made breakfast and several other meals during our stay. There was an espresso machine but no microwave or electric/filter coffee maker. It was nice to be on the top floor with large windows and views to the surroundings. It was important to us that the building and front door were both very secure.
We knew there was no TV (or radio) but we had our computers to entertain us. We also used the washing machine and borrowed their shopping cart for our supermarket trip. The Wi-Fi was extremely fast (a big plus) and there was plenty of hot water in the shower (also important). Everything worked as expected and we quickly got used to "living" there. Our biggest recommendation is to offer large fluffy bath towels as these were quite small.
Stefano was very prompt to respond to requests about the apartment and even helped with recommendations for places to celebrate the New Year. He did a thorough job writing up a user's manual to his apartment. I really appreciated the detailed instructions so we knew where to find and how to use everything. Sadly we never got to meet him in person (we met a friend for the key at the station when we arrived), but perhaps that makes it easier to stay in a stranger's apartment and feel at home. The decor was playful without too many personal items left around (very smart). Overall our Airbnb went smoothly from start to finish and we do recommend his place.
super appartement très lumineux dans un quartier très calme et le centre est facile d'accès
Stéfano nous avait tout laissé pour le petit déjeuner
Nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous dès l'arrivée
Je recommande cette appartement sans aucun problème
L'appartement correspond tout à fait à sa description : grand et confortable ; très agréable à vivre durant les 3 semaines que j'y ai passées.
Stefano a été un hôte parfait, en faisant preuve notamment de sympathiques attentions permettant de faciliter le séjour.
Quartier très agréable de Bruxelles, proche du centre, et très bien desservi en transports en commun.
Dear Benoit, thanks a lot for your lovely words, it was a pleasure hosting you! and also thank you so much for leaving our place in perfect conditions...you are a great guest!
Such a great apartment in such a great location! Highly recommended.
It was really easy to organise things with Stefano before we arrived and it was really easy to find.
I thought it might be a bit far from the centre but there was really quick access using the trams and then eventually we realised it was such a nice area we pretty much stayed around Ixelles.
The flat was lovely. Spacious, clean, nicely decorated. The kitchen was full of all the amenities and the living/dining room was really comfortable - great to relax in after having walked around all day. I really don't have a bad thing to say about it. I'll definitely be staying again next time I go back if it's available.
Stefano & Alex were great guests.
They are both lovely and pleasant, I felt like they really cared about my place. It was clean and well kept.
I would love to host them again in the future!!
Communications went smooth, and pleased that they stayed with me.
Stefano and his friends were great guests and left everything clean behind! They are always welcome in the future.

I highly recommend hosting them :-)
Stefano visited me with her lovely girlfriend Alex and it was really nice to host them.They are very nice couple, in everyway: really friendly easy going and adaptable, very tidy, clean, and respectful guests! They coordinated everything with me ahead of time in detail for check-in. They left everything in perfect condition and respect the space as their own. Based on our experience with their we would not hesitate to recommend their as a guest. We would love for them to stay again with us! They have an open invitation to my place!
Stefano and Alexandra stayed at my place for couple of nights. These people are easy to get along, very friendly, respectful, calm and clean. It was such a great experience to host them! Recommend!
