Quiet and secure and centrally located

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the location of the apartment. We could walk everywhere and had easy access to trams and trains. I was disappointed in a few things in the apartment i.e. Short on the number of towels available, did not supply sufficient body wash for showers. However it was very secure and quiet with plenty of room for lounging and also plenty of room in closets for storage. And we had a lovely young woman meet us as we arrived to introduce us to the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. We had a lovely stay. Thank you.

Excellent location - wonderful, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

I don't know if this has ever happened to us, but upon arrival to the apartment, we found it to be even larger than the photos online portrayed and just as beautiful! It was so spacious and very clean it felt as it was a new apartment or just recently renovated. It was also very quiet, although near a vibrant area, we slept like babies at night. They had everything we needed and more. The lady who greeted us had to wait about an extra hour for us, as our train was seriously delayed. We felt bad, but she still greeted us with a smile and treated us wonderfully. The location is PRIME - just around the corner from the Place Stephanie and pretty much the very center of Brussels, with access to everything by walking or public transportation. My husband lived in Brussels years ago, so he really knows, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else now that we've found this place.

Great Location, Spacious Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was certainly a wonderful place for a family of four (like ours) to stay when in Brussels. The location can't be beat; you are steps away from a tram stop that will take you anywhere you need to go, including the Louise metro station (which is also within walking distance). For breakfast, the Paul bakery--just one block from the apartment--will fill you with as many croissants as you could possibly desire. Should you prefer supplying your own groceries, near the Paul bakery there is an "Express" supermarket with everything you need. In addition, an Exki market/restaurant between Paul and the Express has ready-made, natural foods at an affordable price.

The living space within the apartment is generous, and the storage in the bedrooms is impressive, no matter how long your stay (and how many clothes you may have brought). If I were furnishing the apartment myself, I would provide more seating rather than just one sofa for lounging, but this is a small quibble (and the sofa provided is quite comfortable).

There are some quirks of the apartment I should mention that prevent me from rating it higher. First of all, the placement of the bathrooms is unusual; the master and the kids' rooms both contain a bathroom to make them "suites." But the master's bathroom is the one with the bathtub, while the kids' bathroom is the one with the shower. Parents who bathe their children in the tubs while themselves using a shower will find this an odd arrangement. Both bathrooms are showing significant signs of age. Grout and caulk are more than a bit moldy and stained. The fans are loud but don't seem to remove moisture from the air. Second, you should know that this is a very busy, tightly populated urban area. The windows close well to deal with the noise at night. Visual privacy is achieved only with some peel-n-stick window film, and it is peeling in some places. Something to keep in mind.

Finally, when we arrived there were no cleaning supplies at all in the kitchen (not even a sponge, scrubber, or paper towels, let alone soap for the dishwasher or for spraying down countertops). There were also no supplies for the washing machine or dryer (soap, bleach, fabric softener, etc.). We e-mailed the owner about this and received a partial list of what we had requested the next morning... but it was really a partial list. We send another e-mail and received almost everything, but never got a return message from the landlord, which would have been appreciated.

family with older children traveling

  • 5 of 5

this apartment is great. we had our 20 year old daughters traveling with us and this apartment gave us plenty of room. It was bright, clean, good location. Jennifer worked with us and was great, our plane was delayed for a while and this was no problem. I highly recommend Stephanie Louise II

Clean and well decorated apartment with a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well decorated, clean, and with all amenities desired. The staff is both friendly and professional. The location allows you to reach most interesting parts of Brussels on foot, but also on public transportation (and taxis are around the corner). Giant shopping area and restaurant street three minutes away. We had a fantastic stay and I would go back again and again. Thank you!
