What we liked the most

  • The skylights make the apartment very luminous and offer some superb views of the rooftops of St Gilles. The view from the bedroom in particular is exceptional.
  • The comfortable living room has a foldable sofa which is perfect if you have guests to stay. The dining area within the kitchen also seats up to five or six people, making it an ideal sociable space.
  • The Justice Hall can be seen from the apartment, showing its proximity to some of the most important institutions in Brussels, while the European Institutions, Commission and university are under thirty minutes by public transport.
  • The rooms are spacious and there is a great deal of storage throughout. There are two traditional and attractive bureaus in the apartment, perfect for students or those beginning their career in the city.
  • The apartment is perfect for those who like the city but also some greenery, as there are plenty of parks around yet tenants will only be fifteen minutes from the city centre.
  • There is a washing machine in the large bathroom. The bathroom has two sinks, perfect for couples.

Things to keep in mind

  • There is no oven, however there is a two rung electric stove and microwave that should cater to your cooking requirements.
  • The bedroom is accessed by a spiralling staircase, this may prove difficult when moving larger things into the room and the room itself does not have much storage. However the rest of the apartment has ample space, meaning that using the bedroom to store belongings is not always necessary.
  • The apartment building lacks an elevator.
