House Rules

The studio will be your place in Brussels. Just take care of it as you would do with your own.

Smoking is permitted only in the terrace/garden.

Check-in and check-out times can be arranged accordingly.

Heating in the studio is provided via electric state-of-the-art computerised air convector providing and ensuring stable temperature all through the day/night. No need to manipulate the temperature knob, unless you are really too hot or too cold. In that case, I will explain to you what to do.

No deposit is requested. Yet, please be responsible also with the set of keys (one set per guest). Each set has 2 keys (one key to access the building and the second one to enter the studio). The key to access the building is actually a magnetic key. If lost, extra 50.00 EUR will be charged. The key to the studio opens a security door. If lost, extra 30.00 EUR will be charged. I am willing to keep this rule unofficial as long as possible. If any key is lost and you refuse to reimbourse, this rule will change and for any future booking a deposit will be officially requested. So, please be responsible towards the studio, its owner and, ultimately, any future guests.

This place was perfect for my trip. I needed a place close to a venue I was attending in Brussels and this was it. Place is fully renovated, bed was super comfy, had everything I needed. Supermarket was literally 2 buildings down and the subway station was 2 blocks away. I could even walk from the train station to the place. Claudio came to picked me up at train station, he was indeed a good host, very communicative and helpful. My only comment/complain, I'm guessing I was there while other tenants were doing renovations, because there was a lot of hammering including sunday morning.

It is as it looks. Nice and tidy, great for a stay. Claudio is a caring host with a lot of attention to details. Great to turn up in a place where every thing is available to "live": oil, salt, detergent, loo paper, some milk, bread, etc. If you don't have time to visit the many shops and supermarket within a few minutes of the flat, you don't need to worry, it's all in here. Strongly recommended.

We only had a short stay in brussels, but Claudio's place was perfect. He is the perfect host too; very helpful and even left us some chocolates to welcome us. His place is extremely handy for the Eurostar station too.

My partner and I stayed at Claudio's for two nights and we loved his place. Claudio was the perfect host. He met as at the studio exactly when he said he would, and provided breakfast and Belgian chocolates for us which was a nice touch. The studio was clean and warm and was perfect for a short stay. The studio is a 10 minute walk to Brussels MIdi station and close to town and restaurants and bars. There is a supermarket just a couple of doors down. The studio has a washing machine which came in handy and a large outdoor area, which would be perfect for a summer stay. We would definitely stay here again.

What a great home base for our stay in Brussels! The apartment is only a couple blocks from the south train station (Gare du Midi) in Brussels - a very short tram ride or less than 10 minutes walking away. So the apartment is easily accessible when arriving by train or air. Upon arrival we were met by Claudio who had the place all set for us: plenty of towels, tourist info and bakery and other items for our first day breakfast (which ended up being enough for a couple days of breakfast). The apartment is sunny with a nice patio. The apartment is small and has no television, but who needs a lot of room and TV when you have all of Brussels to explore? The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in! Absolutely loved it. Unlike some private apartment rentals, Claudio went above and beyond to provide amenities typically found in hotels including extra shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap and toilet paper. Even before we arrived, he helped us by providing train schedules and costs. The apartment has a small, but full kitchen. The appliances were all brand new. There's a washer, but no dryer, but we were able to hang our clothes to dry on the patio. Wifi in the apartment worked great! The only negatives were that the neighbors were rather loud late into the night one night, but other nights this was not an issue. Also, the neighborhood seemed a little seedy late at night, although we never felt unsafe. There's a Delhaize grocery store conveniently located next to the apartment building. Trams and the train station are very close by, but there is plenty to explore even within walking distance of the apartment. We would definitely stay here again!!

My partner and i stayed at Claudio's bnb for 1 night. Even though it was a very short stay, Claudio made sure we were comfortable and well-accomodated and well received. We were escorted from the tube station (3min walking distance) to the apartment which is safe and secure. Thanks Claudio!

Claudio is a GREAT host! He gave us super specific directions which allowed us to easily find the place. Even still, he was waiting for us at the front of the building. He was very accommodating to our check in/check out schedule. I liked how he made sure to wait for us in front of the building since it requires a key to enter, which is ideal for visitors who don't have local cell phones and are unable to call. All in all, Claudio is just truly a genuinely good person. Ideal location next to a large grocery and across the street from a metro station just a stop away from Midi and a few stops from everything else. The space itself is like a hotel room. Nobody lives there. It's new, clean, and looks exactly like the pics. Claudio had Easter related treats waiting for us, along with juice, bread, water, and jam for our stay. Bed is extremely comfortable! Great water pressure & hot water. Stove & fridge work well. The garden space will be wonderful in the warmer months! The only thing left to add is a TV. Internet worked very well and fast. The area is extremely safe, as is the building. Claudio and his space were so perfect that when we went on to Paris after leaving his place, we just kept wishing our next host and space had been like Claudio's lol! I wish there were more hosts and locations like Claudio. Claudio's attention to detail did not go unnoticed by us. When we return to Brussels we will definitely stay here, no question! You won't have any regrets or wishes unmet if you choose Claudio's place!

Hello Anthony and Candice! Well, I am flattered by your review. I am really. I did my best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I think you fully understood the philosophy behind my listing. I want my guests to feel like home but also to experience a hotel-like type of accommodation. And this to ensure hosts can benefit at best from the studio, its surroundings and Brussels in general. I will be more than happy to have you over any time soon. A TV is foreseen in the near future. Thank you for the remark. Take care. Claudio
