About this listing

Private double room in easily reachable neighbourhood (commune of Etterbeek), in direct link with city centre, close to Flagey and EU institutions. Semi-private kitchenette and shower room, separate WC, shared with other room occupant only. Big adorable protective dog named Ziggy (Stardust).

The space

My house is located close to both the trendy neighbourhood of Flagey (commune of Ixelles) and at walking distance from the EU premises. Reaching the city centre and its hip Dansaert/Saint-Géry neighbourhood is very easy, it’s a 8-min walk to the metro station Merode, from there on you have a 15-min journey. I regularly attend concerts in the Ancienne Belgique and leave home 30 minutes before the official start hour.
I have two rooms available for guests in my house. This one is the large room, spacious and offering a relaxing corner. It is also possible to sleep in three in this room, an extra matrass to put on the floor is available.
I have been an Airbnb host two years long, upmost enjoying the experience and the friendships that grew out of it. The house is now reshaped so that the second floor is an independent unit offering a kitchen and a bathroom, I hope guests will appreciate the plus pleasance gained. I provide all comfort (bed linen, towels, basic bathroom utilities, wifi, privacy, any kind of irregular hours accepted, etc.) and am happy to answer your questions about my home and/or Brussels. Feel free to contact me!, I am looking forward to the hosting stuff for two weeks before switching back to short-term rental.
My big adorable dog will protect you and your belongings once I have welcomed you. Ziggy (Stardust) is impressive by size and presence but a true loving and caretaking dog he is. The dog is not allowed upstairs; only if there is storm he might want to shelter on the first level, where the sound is less echoing. But I will always be there to welcome you and sleep with him on the ground floor (from which I can close the doors to any other house access) on your first night stay.

Guest access

Guest access to second floor consisting in the 2 bedrooms, the shared kitchenette & shower room, and a separate toilet.

Interaction with guests

I fluently speak French, Dutch and English, and manage some Italian. English is spoken to the dog. Dutch to my daughters. French with most of the friends.

I will be happy to answer your requests beforehand, feel free to contact me. On site, I can guide you to the place you have to reach, and maybe even walk with you.

Other things to note

I have been living in my house for 17 years, I have two daughters, aged 16 and 13, who sometimes pop in, but don’t live in the house on a regular basis.

The dog is not going upstairs, he is not admitted in the bathroom and the sleeping rooms; only if there is storm or fireworks he might want to shelter on the first level, where the sound is less echoing. But I will always be there to welcome you and sleep with him on the ground floor (from which I can close the doors to any other house access).

If you don't mind, since I re-painted the stairs lately, I'd rather have no shoes on the floors. Slippers at your disposal.

Staying at Cendre's place was everything I could've asked for and more! She went out of her way to make me feel welcome and I loved all the travel tips she had for the city. The room was spacious and the location was great. I would definitely recommend her place and I'll try to stay there again whenever I'm in Brussels.

Cendre was awesome from the first moment of contact to the last. She was an amazing host that gave me detailed directions to the place and was extremely accommodating. The room was large, the bathroom was great and it felt nice to come home to after a day of touring around Brussels. The area where she lives is safe and cute. I would definetly come back and stay here.

Response from Cendre:
Thank you Annette ! I also very much appreciated you, and so did Ziggy as you must have noticed (I hope he hasn't been too noisy when you came back home). Also, it had been quite some time I had hosted an American guest, and it felt so nice to have you home. Monday's concert was top, always nice to see high-ranked artists playing in a small café like back then, but there were so many people I knew I could hardly manage myself :)

Everything went great and was as described. Was only staying for one night but had a very nice stay and a great night's sleep. Thanks Cendre - I'm sure I'll see you and Ziggy again!

Cendre was a great host, with a lot of helpful suggestions if needed. Maps and other helpful features in the room, huge windows, comfortable surrounding. Also a very calm neighborhood, I had a great sleep : )

Cendre is a wonderful host that welcomed me warmly. Everything was prepared including the bed, towel, water in the room, wifi, etc. Bed and shower were very clean, warm, and comfy. The house and neighborhood represent traditional Bruxelles at its best :-) A top airbnb location.

Cendre was a lovely host. She has a little table set up with cups, water and a hot water boiler along with tea and coffee. On the table there are many tourist maps to help navigate the city. Her area is easily accessible by tram and metro and there is a cute area with a good chips stand about 10 minutes away on foot towards the city center. The room was huge and the bed very comfy. We caught up on some much needed sleep after traveling for a week and a half prior to arriving. Very huge and sweet dog too! Didn't bark once!
