Prepare to be charmed from the moment you walk into this 1-bedroom apartment for rent on Place du Grand Sablon, in the center of Brussels. The open-concept kitchen, dining and living room area has wood floors, exposed brick walls, a working fireplace, and it's flooded by natural light from the three large windows that overlook the square. Elegantly decorated, the space has a coffee table between a comfy sofa and two chairs, a flat screen TV, a credenza and shelving unit, and a six-seat dining table. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a dishwasher, and comes with all the necessary small appliances. The bedroom, which has a window toward the back, is spacious and comes with two large wardrobes and a double bed. It also has an ensuite water closet with toilet and sink and a separate shower room.

In earlier times, Sablon was just an unused space outside the city walls of Brussels. Today, it’s a neighborhood that has practically been absorbed by the city center. The apartment is located on Grand Sablon, which is one of two main squares in the area. The other, Petit Sablon, is only a 5-minute walk down the street. Both areas are vibrant and alive with busy cafés and restaurants, but if you’re in the mood to sing a chord or two, there is a karaoke bar just 1 minute outside your door. Major sights in this part of town include the Royal Palace. You don’t want to miss a chance to visit at least once, but you might want to walk the beautiful palace gardens, known as Brussels Park, daily. The good news is that living here, you can do just that!
Suitable for: Professionals, Couples, Students, Erasmus
Sablon (Brussels City Center): Sablon is a home to twin squares - Grand Sablon and Petit Sablon. Originally an unused space in the old days, this neighborhood started growing in the fifteenth century and became an important part of the royal lineage. It got remodelled in the nineteenth century and is currently very popular with Brussels’ residents, featuring plenty of antique stores as well as shops and restaurants, allowing you to have a comfortable life in Brussels. You will also find the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel University here, along with plenty of bus and tramway stations that will take you into the city centre.
