A quiet street, 1 minute to the closest metro, 1 minute (different direction) to a nice cafe, 5-7 minutes to Centraal train station, about 5 minutes ( pass the metro and big street junction) to the small groceries shop. 2 minutes to the square with all museums. Do not miss MIM (musical instruments museum), if you go there, check the view from the cafeteria on the roof (the cafeteria itself is overpriced and not tasty - so, consider checking the view and going back down to listen for the instruments).
It is a bit more walk (maybe 20 minutes uphill) to the house from the "beer center" of Brussels (pissing boy, girl, a dog - and the beer points between them). We sent the grandparents and the kids with Uber from the very center home and it was 8Eur
The entrance is from the small court, there is a small (5 Pers) lift that takes you to the top. The apartment consists of 3 floors:
The lower has one double bedroom with ensuite and additional wc. That is the one with the bicycle on the pictures.
The middle is the huge living room, equipped with all possible electronics, the kitchen with appliances and a terrace with some wooden chairs and a sunbed. My 11-yo children decided to sleep in the living room despite they were offered a dedicated room upstairs - because of the view and DVD :)
The upper floor has two bedrooms (one double, one single plus additional bed) and a bathroom, plus a small sitting area.
We were 6 and it fitted us very well. I think it would fit families up to 7 easily.
Despite we never met Julien and his wife, they were very supportive via airbnb messaging: we had small incident with my phone in the beginning and it took time to sort it and to contact the host. Julien then immediately asked the agent to come to the place and to hand us the keys. When we had a question about operating the house (at 21:40) they answered immediately and provided us all necessary explanations. The leaving was easy - we just left the keys and went.
THINGS TO KNOW:
The house is the house where the host's family lives - there are clothes, books, dvds, food of them. It is a bit unusual, but it makes you filling "like a local" (check the thick beers book on the shelf, most of the other books are in French, but children liked them, as well as collections of coins and soldiers).
The house is in very good condition, but not everything works as in hotels - there are printed instructions explaining "small secrets" of the house: do not push this button, one hob in the kitchen is strange, start the hot water a couple of minutes before you go under the shower - this kind of things.
