|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
This comfy apartment has a stylish interior and a perfect location. You'll stay in the centre of Brussels, close to the stunning main square of the city. Enjoy Brussels to the fullest!
If you wish to be impressed by another one of Europe’s regal capital cities, this official capital of E.U. will not only fill your cultural appetite, but have you feeling less of a tourist, and more of a diplomat. The circular centre showcases the city’s imperial and royal history through its iconic buildings and palaces.
If shopping is not your forte, then head outside of local Les Marolles district and head down to the Grand Palace and of course, Brussels’ famous Mannekin Pis. Thought that Brussels was all French fries and chocolate? Think again as this busy city centre encompasses all things diverse, from its multi-national inhabitants to the lively little neighbourhoods and squares to discover.
This property had an amazing location - walking distance to lots of great sights and restaurants, as well as transit. The apartment itself was very nicely laid out, however there were a few issues:
The water pressure was very low and there was limited hot water (the hot water actually cut out several times during our stay and we had to restart it).
There was only one toilet despite there being 'two bathrooms' - the way this was written on the website was not entirely clear - we thought there was a half bath plus at least one additional 'bathroom'. This wasn't a huge deal, but felt that the website could have been more clear about what was available in the apartment.
There were pillowcases missing and several of the pillows were stained upon our arrival.
We found a pair of dirty socks in the couch (my 'bed') and there were a lot of stains on the furniture.
There is very little soundproofing or privacy in the apartment - the bedroom walls do not go up to the ceiling so for families or groups of friends, you have to be very quiet even in the main areas if people in the bedrooms are trying to sleep.
Overall, we would only rate the apartment as 'so-so' and would likely not stay there again unless the issues with the water / cleanliness were addressed.
This is a very spacious, clean, and nice apartment. The best part was that it was located very close to everything going on in the city. That was also a problem though because at night there was a lot of noise in the front bedroom, due to a restaurant/bar next door that is open very late. We found the check-in process to be difficult to say the least. The place to get the key is located nowhere near the apartment and parking is very difficult to find. With 3 small children in tow, this was a stressful way to start our trip. Also, the elevator at the apartment is the smallest I have ever seen and is difficult to get several children up and down. Not sure how you would fit a stroller in it!
The location of the apartment is fantastic a 5 minute walk from the grand palace and market and a subway stop a 2 minute walk from which ever way you turn. Also the view from the apartment was incredible and picture perfect. However, the wifi was either very slow or cut out frequently, there is a mcdonalds right down the street with free wifi though. Also the shower never had hot water, but the bathtub did. The bed were not at all comfortable and we were not given a decent amount of towels. The apartment also does not give you the basic things you would probably expect to find such as garbage bags, soap, or salt, pepper, sugar. A fair warning as well the apartment is on the 5th floor which means lots of climbing or squeezing into a tiny elevator that barely fits 2 people. The apartment though is very spacious and although it had its downsides, it was comfortable for the week we stayed, and the owners were very accommodating to us as due to travel complications we arrived much later then expected.
The apartment was very spacious, light and comfortable. The location was perfect - walking distance to many sights, restaurants, shopping, etc.
We stonden een kwartiertje later dan gepland voor het appartement. Omdat we daar niet zoals afgesproken de sleutel kregen hebben we daarna 1,5 uur door de stad moeten rijden. Dit was niet onze eerste boeking. Eerder waren we zeer tevreden.
Apartamento grande, situado en muy buena zona pero:
MUY SUCIO. Tuvimos que limpiarlo nada más llegar, ellos únicamente lo habían fregado con agua (los productos de limpieza lo compramos nosotros, se lo hemos dejado, a ver si pillan la indorecta). Los baños tenían restos de cal que certificaban que no se habían limpiado a fondo nunca. Los cojines de las sillas y el sofá muy sucios y llenos de manchas. Los cojines no los usamos y al sofa le pusimos una cortina por encima.
Al llegar la bañera no funcionaba pero nos lo arreglaron al día siguiente.
Las camas no son comodas (los colchones no tienen apenas firmeza y las camas individuales necesitan que se atornillen, porqué cada vez que te mueves crujen)
Ciertamente, si el estado de limpieza fuera normal (ya me imaginaba que no estaria tan limpio como un hotel pero no me lo imaginaba tan sucio) y se hiciera algo de mantenimiento el apartamento seria perfecto para pasar unos días en bruselas.
