Good Location and clean
This apartment was very clean and walking distance to the Grand Place. I would recommend this apartment for a couple on a budget, it was clean, quiet, and well appointed. The manager/cleaning lady was friendly and helpful and tried to make our stay comfortable. The owners were easy to work with and answered our questions quickly. Lovely people all around.
I could not give 5 stars for this property for the following reasons. 1) the toilet was downstairs and the bathtub/shower was upstairs. 2) the bathtub/shower had a very short shower sprayer cord and we had to crouch in the tub to wash up, my husband ended up fixing it, but it was still short 3) the jetted tub did not work 4) the stair case to the second floor does not have a safe rail to hold onto and we bumped out heads on the ceiling going up several times. 5) This is the top unit of a five story building, lots and lots of stairs to go up and down. This was very hard with suitcases and we are very fit and healthy 6) Not a safe place for small children with that staircase. The electricity kept going out and we had to go downstairs and let them know then climb all the way back up. This was due to construction and we're told that an electrician was scheduled for the next month of July.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review,
About point 1, i think the toilet is placed right, its in a separate placed in the living area, i don't see a need in placing a toilet in the same area as a bath and washing area, even more it think having it separate from where you wash yourself, is more hygienic.
Point 2 , was indeed true, we have changed the spraying hose for a longer 1.
That the jets don't work is no issue, because we didn't let it for rent as there should be a spa, it says there is a bath and there is a bath, even a very big 1, big enough for 2 people. Once i start advertising the apartment with a spa and it don't work , you have a point, but now you haven't.
Point 3 , the railing of the stairs , was new but as we found out of a very poor making and has been renewed with a better quality.
Point 4 , Its indeed on the 4th level, its a roof apartment which gives it his charm and many people select it specially for that. I take that people don't have to walk up with their luggage more then once each stay.
If you prefer to have a place which is or on a lower level, you have to look for that when you book something, or you want an elevator, make sure if there is 1 before booking , its written in the advert that its on the 4th level.
Point 5 , indeed there has been a problem with the electricity before, this could only be solve by the electricity company itself and these are not 1 of the fastest in Belgium to solve anything. Anyway, this problem doesn't exist anymore.
