“Incredible Apartment in the heart of Brussels.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Elena and her husband are the perfect hosts. They are warm, helpful fun and delightful. The apt is breathtaking! Beautifully decorated, comfortable, roomy. The apt is in a period townhouse in a great neighborhood, close to shopping, transit, restaurants, and Grand Place.. We walked around easily any time day and night with no anxiety!!!!! There is a washer/dryer which was so helpful. It is up 4 flights of steps for those who have mobility issues. We are a middle aged couple who had no trouble at all, even with suitcases or grocery bags. We would stay there again in a minute!

“Beautiful place, well thought out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband, toddler and I stayed in this beautiful apartment for about two weeks, part of the stay when it was during the heat wave this year. So our experience may differ slightly from others, particularly in relation to mosquitos bites which my little girl had in the last few nights of our stay.

Otherwise, we had a most wonderful stay. Though Elena was not around, the housekeeper looked after us very well. At the start of the stay, to help my little girl adjust, the housekeeper brought some toys and books up. At once we felt welcomed.

The apartment was spotless and beautifully presented. It also had the advantage of a terrace garden which we enjoyed when the sun wasn't shining directly on it. The kitchen is the most well equipped - with everything you need. We have stayed in a few different places over the year, and this is by far the best kitchen provided by the proprietor. It is a place you can live and enjoy using the kitchen, and the ample space in the lounge, and dining area.

The bathroom, toilet and bedroom were are well thought out, and clean.

Location wise, it is really ideally located with groceries just down the road (Delhaize), and easy access to the trains.

Unfortunately during our stay we managed to damage the coffee maker and a lamp (inevitably with a very active toddler). We informed Elena about the damage and had to forgo the deposit to cover for the replacement of the items. Elena handled the whole process very graciously.

Overall, it is a perfect accommodation for us. We highly recommend this. It is by far the best accommodation we have had in Brussels.

“Fab place, very comfortable bed and very central as we walked everywhere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We loved the apartment and the welcome from housekeeper Laeyla. We appreciated the milk and juice. The bathroom was very roomy and I enjoyed a bath - not always the case in apt rentals! My 17 year old could not work out the shower glass door, however it was not a problem for me! We loved the living room chair and enjoyed watching Antiques Roadshow, but not sure if there were 100 TV channels, although not that important for a 3 day break! We felt very welcome by the housekeeper and maybe next time it would be great to meet Elena and family. We really loved the friendliness of the restaurant next door - Argentinian. See you next time!? We also walked everywhere and did not take a metro as we like to be above ground!

Hello Michelle,

Thanks for your nice review!

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.
