Cosy apartment with canal view in a quiet but very central area. The metro station (Comte de Flandres) is literally 10 steps from the front door, and from here it is only 3 stops to Central Station. It's also very conveniently located if you want to go to Heysel, with Brussels Expo and the iconic Atomium. If you need to head to the European institutions, the metro will take you there in 10 minutes.
For those who prefer to walk, Grand Place, one of the most beautiful squares in the world, is a pleasant 15-minute stroll away. From there you can easily reach the museum area.
The area between the canal and the Grand Place, with Vismet, rue Dansaert and rue de Flandre, is famous for its stylish fashion shops, designer boutiques and edgy art galleries, not to mention the numerous trendy bars and cosy restaurants that cater for all tastes and budgets.
The apartment is about 100 sqm and has two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. One bedroom has its own bath, toilet and sink, the other a shower and a sink, with a separate toilet in the entrance hall. Spacious living and dining room, all decorated with care. The apartment is at the third floor, but you don't have to do steps as there is a fully functional elevator.
There is a south oriented terrace, with a table and four chairs for you to enjoy the sun and some nice Belgian beer. Or a cigarette if you are a smoker, because smoking inside is not allowed.
The city bike rental station is only a two-minute walk from the house. For the nearest bank and supermarket you'll need an extra three minutes.
Check in after 2 PM, check out before 11 AM as a general rule, but depending on other bookings I can be flexible.
- Smoking is not allowed inside, but there is plenty of room outside on the terrace. Just don't put your butts in the plants.
- No pets or animals, please.

Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium, it's also the capital of Europe. It's centrally located: it takes you 35 minutes to go to Antwerp or Gent, 1 hour to go to Bruges and 1 hour 15 minutes to go to the beach.
But this central location makes it also perfect for day-trips to Paris (1hour20minutes), London (2hours), Amsterdam (1hour50minutes) or Cologne (1hour50minutes).
As capital of Belgium and Europe, there is always something going on in Brussels. In summer you'll have plenty of festivals, most of them free. In winter there is our highly esteemed Christmas market. The Grand Place must be one of the most beautiful squares in the world. There are plenty of museums, with the new Magritte Museum just to mention one. Brussels is also cartoon capital, so you'll find large cartoon decorated walls all around town. If you are a lover of beer or chocolate, Brussels is pure heaven!
