“Beautiful apartment - comfortable and convenient”
Left on 05/12/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | CassandraReviewed May 12, 2014Stayed Apr 2014
Elena was very hospitable and helpful. Despite our arriving at a late hour, we were able to check in to the room with no hassles at all. The place was immaculately clean and the apartment was well-furnished - it had everything we needed. The location is good for taking the Metro and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, although the house itself is situated in a quiet neighbourhood. I like the prompt replies and the no-hassle payment and check-in the best, but the beautifully furnished apartment itself comes a close second. What bothered me a bit was taking our luggage up and down the narrow staircase to reach the apartment, but this is a minor detail compared to the comfort of the rest of our stay.

Over the years I have rented several apartments while vacationing and this was by far the best. The kitchen and dining area were spacious and well stocked. The bed was very comfortable and most importantly it was sparking clean.

Elena was very charming and helpful with suggestions about places to visit in Brussels. The apartment is beautiful,quiet,central and close to amenities. It is within walking distance of both the EU Centre and across the park lies the city centre. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

1. Beautiful apartment with adorable little back porch.
2. Quiet street, safe area, close to transport
3. Owners are very generous with information (good information) about services, and food to enjoy in Brussels. Also laid back, friendly.
4. Its clean!
5. Lots of light. Comfortable, spacious bathroom.
6. Super quick walk to metro (easy to use, and clean and calm), but also only a 15 minute walk to the touristy areas like the Grand Place.
1. I wish there were more cafes and patisseries right next to the unit. There are actually a lot, close by, but we didn't see them until our last day b/c they seem to be in the opposite direction from the metro. Once we did venture into the neighborhood though we realized how nice and cozy it is, and would have liked to have gotten to know it better.
2. Its a fourth floor walk up. I don't really think this is a con at all. No big deal what so ever. However I mention in case there is a person with injuries or something.
Regarding the Cons I just wanted to correct your information:
a) the Apartment is NOT ON THE 4th FLOOR, but on the 2nd floor (for Europeans) or 3rd floor for Americans.
b) I will also make more evident how interesting our neighborhood can be. All the information and links are actually in the General Info paper that I send to all guests, but from your comments it seems worth to make it more obvious.
Brussels, our fav European city
“Such a soft place to land!”
Left on 04/21/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Brussels, our fav European cityReviewed Apr 21, 2013Stayed Apr 2013
This apartment is all and more as advertised. My husband and I couldn't have been more comfortable and Elena and Rehan attended quickly to any requests--they live on the ground level. I spent the first of 2 weeks on my own (came to Brussels to continue my French studies), and felt safe and relaxed to and fro in the neighborhood. The apartment is extremely soundproof, spacious, and so convenient to food shopping, bank access, restaurants, and public transport. I loved walking the nearby neighborhoods (Marie-Louise and amboirix Squares, etc.) replete with art Nouveau buildings, ponds, and quiet surroundings. We plan to return to Brussels next year, and hope to stay again at Elena and Rehan's place. One caveat--the apartment is located on what the U.S. would consider the 3rd level, requiring walking up two short flights of stairs. Great exercise for us but could be a problem for anyone with physical constraints.
It was an absolute pleasure having you staying in our apartment. It felt like family! And we are happy to have contributed to make your stay pleasant and Linda's French absolutely fluent.
It will be great to have you over again next year and any time you wish!
Take care and keep up with the good life!

And that's not to say we had little or no expectations. I reviewed about 20 different flats for our 5night stay in Brussels (after spending 10d in Paris) and I kept coming back to this one.
The location is ideal - a 10min walk max from metro; 5 min walk to the market; 15min walk to Brussels Park. We are runners so it was great to be between both Brussels Park and Cinquantenaire Park (location of the Belgian arc de Triomphe).
This flat has so many great features - safe neighbourhood, good heating in cold weather (even w beautiful, full height windows), a large washroom w/ full tub/shower, fully equipped kitchen and distinct, spacious living areas. Having a corner to hide your luggage and a chaise to have a drink is why we prefer flats over hotels. (We do not require room service "pampering" and Elena was as responsive as any concierge could have been.)
The amenities are also outstanding. WiFi, cable TV, washer/dryer...what more could you need?
This is a walk-up and there is no elevator but get over it. We had a large, fully packed suitcase and 2 other "carry-on" type bags each...sure we sweated getting them up but it's not impossible.
Bottom line: I honestly have nothing negative to say. It's a charming house and Elena is a wonderful host. I would recommend this flat to my mum. And for the price? Get outta here. It's very economical. The photos are accurate but what you don't get a real sense for is the volume of space. Enjoy!

This apartment is incredibly spacious and comfortable. The location is fantastic, particularly to the EU institutions. The metro is very close and easy to use to get anywhere you want to go. Thoroughly recommend.
it was a real pleasure meeting, and hosting, you. I hope the rest of your trip is as you wished.
Have great holidays, Merry Xmas and best wishes for a wonderful 2013 to you both!
P.S. may be the Eu will deserve a closer look again sometime in the future
:) See you then!
“Great place to stay in Brussels”
Left on 01/16/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | JWReviewed Jan 16, 2012Stayed Dec 2011
My husband and I like to stay in places that are off the beaten tourist path [ie. not the typical big city hotels] so we can get a truer sense of a city and its character. This apt. suits our taste in accommodation perfectly. The actual house has beautiful old european character [high ceilings and a lovely old wooden staircase on the way up to the apt, which is on the 2nd floor] and the apt is decorated with a combination vibe of cozy & slightly asian minimalist. It's really airy and spacious, and the light on a sunny day [if you're lucky enough to get one in Brussels!] is gorgeous.
It's in a central, yet quiet & residential part of town and it's also really close to convenient public transportation and sweet little cafes/restaurants/beer cellars.
The couple renting out the place lives on the ground floor and were really sweet and helpful, but you wouldn't really know they're there unless you need anything.
Definitely recommend this place to anyone and will definitely stay there again if/when I go back to Brussels!

This is a really great place to stay - it is walking distance to Parliament etc, it's in a beautiful house, and is very modern and well supplied in all mod.cons.
The area is great - not only central, but also short walking distance to nicer, livelier, North african part of town with gr8 restaurants etc.
I have stayed here several times when coming to Brussels for professional reasons. The family that owns the place seem very nice - ready to point me in the right direction for stuff, etc. And they stay out of the way!
