Guestbook comments from the owner

Le studio Rodenbach est vraiment très agréable. Nous y avons passé une semaine du 3 au 7 mars. Il est très lumineux et on a vraiment apprécié l'ouverture sur le petit jardin, même si à cette saison, nous n'avons pas pu apercevoir la tortue qui tient compagnie ! L'organisation du studio est très originale : une pièce unique pour manger, se relaxer et dormir. La cuisine est bien équipée et la salle de bain est grande. Le chauffage fonctionne très bien. Aucun bruit de rue ou de voitures, nous avons passé des nuits calmes. Nous étions 6 adultes, et nous n'avons absolument pas eu l'impression d'être les uns sur les autres. Marjolaine, la propriétaire, est une personne très agréable avec qui on prend plaisir à discuter, elle est très cool. Si on devait retourner à Bruxelles, on ne se poserait pas de questions, on irait au studio Rodenbach, idéalement situé près des stations de métro, dans un charmant quartier. Nous recommandons cette location, on peut y aller en toute confiance. Un grand merci à Marjolaine !

Studio très original par son architecture!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un superbe week-end dans ce grand studio ! Celui-ci est très calme et très bien situé à un angle du tram et 10 minutes de la Grande Place. Il est très bien équipé et fonctionnel.Les enfants ont été ravis de l'espace ! La propriétaire est très accueillante et à l'écoute. Nous reviendrons, notamment saluer la tortue ...

Lovely spacious apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and five friends stayed in this little gem for a week and we were not at all disappointed! Upon arrival, we were greeted to a very warm welcome from Marjolin, who gave us a tour of the studio, answered all our questions, and introduced us to Constance, the friendly resident tortoise living in the garden! We were also delighted to discover the Rodenbach beer that had been left for us in the fridge!

The apartment itself was surprisingly spacious, with a lovely brightness to it from the skylight windows (which could conveniently be closed at night.) The beds (2 singles, 2 sofa-beds and 1 double) were comfortable and very welcoming after being out and about all day! The kitchenette, which although small, had no lack of space to cook a decent meal, as we indeed did a number of nights, and the local shops provided a great range of products to facilitate this (as well as some very reasonably priced bottles of wine!) The highlight of the bathroom was definitely the shower, which certainly had some power to it (unlike those weak ones you often seem to find in hotels these days), as well as enough hot water for five showers each morning.

The studio is well-situated for exploring the wealth of attractions that Brussels has to offer, with a metro station just round the corner, and a 3-day unlimited transport ticket costing around €17 (which seemed great value!). Art galleries, museums, palaces, parks, monuments, and the 'Grand Place' are just a selection of things within easy reach. The 'Grand Place' was alive with the famous Brussels Beer Festival when we were there too which was a lovely surprise.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Rodenbach Studio, and would love to stay here again. Many Thanks to Marjolin!

Wonderful studio; well-placed and very homely.

  • 5 of 5

The studio is very close to a tram stop, and once you have a ticket the public transport is incredibly easy to use. This means that the location is quiet and peaceful, but very easily linked to the city. The studio is decorated with all manner of lamps and maps and such, and this makes it feel nicely lived in - not at all hotel-like. The garden is very nice, and the size took me by surprise. Looking after the tortoise was also enjoyable. There are 3 supermarkets nearby, so we had no problem keeping food stocked, and the walk is easy. Marjolein was very friendly in showing us around, and was flexible with our arrival/departure times.

Overall, the stay was excellent and I would definitely return.

Ideal base to explore Brussels

  • 5 of 5

This art studio has been perfect for myself and my 2 daughters (6 and 8yrs) for our 3 night stay in Brussels. Its light airy, modern, spacious and well designed. The garden and resident tortoise have been a huge hit and added to the delight of visiting Brussels. Owners have been very friendly and helpful, cannot recommend this place enough!! Close to the tram and central Brussels, with nearby shops, its ideal home away from home!
