We felt at home as soon as Le Pham took us inside her flat after meeting us at the nearby Brussels Zuid Station. It was sparkling clean and Le had made every effort to ensure a great stay , including stocking the fridge with all sorts of goodies for breakfast and more.The flat was so comfortable sometimes we had to force ourselves to go out to see the sights of Brussels. Although the area around the station is not the city's finest we felt at ease and encountered no problems at all. The location is very convenient for Metro and all Belgian and European train travel and you can even walk to the Grand Place. The service provided by the owner, Le Pham ,is impeccable. From the meet and greet on our arrival at the Station to the great stock of food and other goodies(Belgian beer, chocolates and fresh fruit) as well as a great deal of information about the local sights Le was a wonderful host.

We felt so comfy here that we would have liked to cut out the appartment, stuff it in our pockets and than take it back home. A freshly renovated appartment in a stylish old building, sunrises on the balcony and sunsets from the wintergarden, what more can u ask for? The fridge was stocked up with more than we could eat. It was constantly refilled with fresh products, with most of them being eco-friendly and / or fair trade.

The owner provided us with more information than we could possibly comprehend. With the city centre starting right on the doorsteps, we discovered most sites by foot. It is situated in a cultural melting pot, so don´t expect fancy bling bling. Instead, you discover a huge variety of maroc, thai, mexican, chinese, egyptian and indian cuisine within a five minute footwalk.

All in all we loved that place. Thanks to Le for all her efforts which made our stay here very enjoyable...

We couldn't fault Aviation 19. The flat was superb and extremely clean. There's a lovely sunroom where we had breakfast with views over Brussels. Le Pham was so helpful and left us a fridge full of food and a assortment of Belgium chocolates! A wonderful 1930's lift takes you to the top floor. The flat is very close to the station and the trams. It was just a short walk to get to the centre and Le Grand Place. We were only in Brussels for one night but would certainly book in again. Le Pham even met us at the station on our return from Bruges with my husband's glasses which he'd left behind. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment.

Actually I still fight with my selfish part, saying to me 'Don't write this review! Keep this gem for yourself!'. But of course, I wish Le all the luck with her fantastic flat, I wish her great visitors, appreciating all what she offers... and I may only hope to be lucky enough to go back there again.
It is HUGE flat. 3 rooms, equipped kitchen, comfortable bathroom, and - the best part for me, even if in winter it was chilly there - orangery with view of rooves of the city.
No... best in this apartment isn't orangery, view, position 5 min. by foot from Midi station and 12 min. from Burse/ Grand Place. The best is Le, the owner. She is incredible person, so friendly... me and my mother felt like 2 queens, she did all what possible to make our stay enjoyable... and even more. She waited for us on the station. Walked with us to the station also on way back. She spent time explaining all about flat, city, giving us map, showing incredibly many books present in the flat.
OK, it is not B&B. But for me it is much more. You may reach Le always by e-mail (and you have notebook with wifi in the flat!!! You don't have to carry own notebook with you!), by phone... and you will find in the fridge much more than breakfast. Bread, ham, cheese, yoghurt, waffle, juice, and even bottle of beer and small bottle of wine... Every day new supply...
I love this place totally. From a moment I entered this flat I started to plan how to return there for longer stay. And I will do it, definitely.
The only problem if you are more than 2 persons may be probably lack of proper table and chairs maybe... There are several small tables, but you can't really sit around with 2 or 3 other persons. But I can't find any other problems/ difficulties/ doubts.
It is place from dreams, so comfortable and friendly...
Thank you, Le! I hope to come back!

We booked Aviation 19 to serve as a home base for our 11-night stay in Belgium. It was an excellent choice. Aviation 19 is a superb accomodation for visiting Brussels as well as the rest of Belgium given its close proximity to the Midi train station. Le was a gem of a hostess. She met us at the train station for the short walk to the penthouse apartment pointing out landmarks along the way. She spent quite a bit of time introducing us to the apartment and suggesting things to do based on our interests. There were numerous resources and guides for exploring the city available in the apartment. Le also gaves us tips for the other cities we planned to visit. The breakfast items that Le supplied each day were delicious, fresh, and local. The espresso coffee in particular was a treat. Getting around Brussels was extremely pleasant by foot, tram, and train. We easily explored several neighborhoods over the course of our stay as well as visiting the coast, Bruges, and Antwerp. We feel so lucky to have found Aviation 19!

I stayed here for 2 nights and really loved it.Bed is confortable, bio breakfast was nice. Fantastic view in de bedroom and wintergarden, even the shower has a view over the Atomium! The tram and bicycle station is just across the street and the metro and train station is 5 minutes walk. You can walk easily to La Grand Place. Le Pham gave me a lot of info about things to do in Brussels. There is also a laptop with free wifi and a television with dvd player available in the apartment.

I booked a three-day stay at Aviation19 for my overseas friends. The appartement was really great and beautifully decorated. Leke (our host) had just finished renovating, so they were one of the first to enjoy the freshly painted rooms. They just loved the colors!.
After a warm welcome, Leke provided all the necessary info about what's going on in Brussels and interesting places to visit.
Breakfast is self-service but is really amazing as the fridge is full of fresh fruit and drinks and all you need. If you like beer, there might be even a small surprise ;-)
Having breakfast in the wintergarden with a spectacular view over Brussels was really special to them, there isn't a better way to start your day.
The square itself is car-free and well situated for walking around town as well as for public transport.
Thank you again for all your help and a wonderful stay!
