This apartment worked out very well for us. I stayed four nights with my wife and 15 month old daughter.
Kitchen - We cooked our breakfast every morning and stored several items in the fridge. The kitchen is well stocked and there is a water filter inside the fridge.
2 Bedrooms - We closed the door to the small bedroom since we had our infant sleep in the main bedroom with us and we didn't want her making a mess in there. The main bedroom opens up to the main area without a door, which we liked. We had no issues sleeping on the bed.
Bathroom - You can see some mildew in the pictures of the shower area. The water pressure was good. Also, one side of the bathroom door (the inner one) was broken. We weren't planning on closing the bathroom door so we did NOT contact anyone to have it fixed because we didn't care. The day before our departure I showed Ludmilla so it could be fixed for the next guests.
Entertainment - The flat screen TV shown on the pictures is not the one in the apartment. Also, the stereo player shown below the TV was not present. We had no issues with WiFi, and in fact felt very fast. We watched (email hidden) at night while the baby slept and we drank wine and ate chocolate. WiFi was key for us.
Washer/Dryer - Worked well and was very important to us since we were traveling very light and had to wash clothing.
Like others have stated, the only natural light coming in is through the front door area. For us, it worked well. It felt like plenty of light and the window opens in a manner that you feel safe while letting fresh air in. We really liked having the security gate for use at night, since we have a young kind and well, it makes you feel safe. Plus, since you can make the apartment very dark during the early morning with the gate, it helped our kid get enough sleep.
Like others have stated as well, it's in a very ideal location. We only took public transportation (no Taxi) to get around. Instead of using the Central Station, we preferred using the De Brouckere Station instead which is also very close. Trente has a black folder that has many recommendations for things to do/see/eat in Brussels. It was a pleasant surprise to find it and we did use it. She also had other useful brochures.
Even though the apartment isn't perfect, it worked very well for us and we enjoyed our stay. I would take this place over a hotel any day. Plus, because the apartment is clear of clutter our baby was able to explore quite a bit. We made a great decision in choosing to stay here during our visit to Brussels.
The welcome, the location, design, cleaning, Everything was fine and professional ! Thanks !
L'appartement est admirablement bien situé, 2 mn des Sablons et de la Chapelle et 10 mn de la Grande Place en flânant.
L'appartement est subtilement accueillant, une déco délicate.
Trois petits points de détails : le matelas est à déconseiller aux dos sensibles, il faudrait rajouter un coquetier, ce qui peut créer un climat de sérénité dans un couple dès le petit déjeuner et enfin la porte de fermeture de l'appartement est purement symbolique.
Mais tout ceci ne gâche rien à la qualité de l'ensemble, si en plus on rajoute l'accueil charmant de l'hôtesse Ludmila.
Appartement bien aménagé, très agréable et surtout très bien situé dans un beau quartier . Pas de difficulté de stationnement en soirée . Nous y avons passé un très bon séjour
L'appartement de Trente est idéalement situé à 2 pas de la Grand'Place. Nous l'avons trouvé conforme aux photos, spacieux, bien équipé et très propre.
La remise des clés et le départ se sont fait très facilement grâce à Ludmila ( pensez cependant à bien préparer le cash pour draps + ménage + photocopie du passeport ).
Idéal pour ceux qui cherchent un lieu pour dormir sans s'y attarder dans la journée, car comme les images peuvent le suggérer, vous ne débarquer pas chez "l'habitant", mais plutôt dans un logement meublé pour la location dans un esprit "Home staging"qui ferait le bonheur de Stéphane Plaza…
Appartement extrêmement bien situé (plein centre), tout confort.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Ludmilla. Tout a été mis en oeuvre pour que nous passions un agréable séjour. Mr et Mme Trente ont été très attentifs à notre bien être. On vous recommande cet appartement sans hésiter.
The location in Brussels !
Le studio de Trente au sablon est idéal pour visiter bruxelles : il se situe à proximité de lieux touristiques incontournables (grand place, palais royal, ...), mais aussi juste à côté de la gare centrale (pour rejoindre l'aéroport international).
Nous avons été accueillies chaleureusement par ludmilla la concierge. Le logement en lui même était propre, confortable pour 2 personnes, et bien décoré !
Bref je vous recommande cette location !
Really nice experience at Trente's Sablon Art Nouveau flat; very nicely fit and 1st class location should you want to visit the Grand Place, Marolles, Mont des Arts, etc.. among places we'd like to recommend is the Peï & Meî restaurant on Rollebeek just a street up right to the flat.
Lovely, quiet and clean apartment; and well equipped. Central location excellent for exploring the city. Need to be fit to climb the stairs! A view from the windows would make it perfect.
Our family of five had a really wonderful stay at Trente and Philip's beautiful place. We came for February vacation, and used this as a base to explore Taormina, Catania, and Syracusa. The spot is rural and hilly, and we enjoyed taking walks around the house. My Italian is pretty bad, so Philip helped me to arrange an afternoon at a nearby donkey farm, which our kids loved. All of us loved the hot tub on the patio, and the rooms were clean and pleasant. The views from the master bedroom and single room were beautiful, which doesn't show up on the photos. Do the math to make sure you've accounted for the extra fees (sheets and towels, electricity, etc,) but we found that overall it was very reasonable and certainly worth it.
With certai persons, it is like we knew each other a long time ago. Such a confidence is so great! The flat was very clean and my guests were so respectfull, that I would very appreciate having them again!
Trente and Filpi are a very nice couple. kind and respectful guests. I recommend them .
Nice, polite and sunny guests!
I recommend them!
Trente spent 4 days in my loft in central Madrid. I really appreciate the way she treated my place, leaving it very tidy and clean. They also were flexible during check in. For all these reasons, I really recommend her as guest and is welcome any time.
Trente and her husband Filip are genuinely good people. I have known them for more than two decades. They have been in the rental business even longer than that, and in that time have honed the art to perfection. They have a great sense of space - they buy beautiful properties all around Europe and do them up with amazing style. They are also very available, helpful and friendly - I know that they have made some good friends through their rental business. On the flip-side, they are also sensitive and respectful, and are more than happy to stay out of the way if that's the way you prefer it. I whole-heartedly recommend Trente and Filip, and can guarantee that if you stay at one of their properties you will not regret it.
I first met Trente in the 1980's, through the art gallery business. She was a frequent visitor to my gallery, and soon we became friends. I have always admired her sense of adventure, and certainly her sense of style and appreciation of art, fine wines, gourmet foods and beautiful homes. If you enjoy life's finer gifts, you've found a gem with this talented, classy lady, Trente.
