Why Owner/Property Manager chose Saint-Gilles
Conveniently located right in the City center, at a street corner from the Prestigious Avenue Louise and the Historical Place Stéphanie. The 3 bedroom apartment, Stephanie IIID makes for an ideal starting point for travelers looking to explore the City many Landmarks. Its close proximity from the Palace of Justice, the Stock Market place and a multitude of Embassies, is also very advantageous for Financial and Political workers. The construct structure is made of two large mansions built in the late 17th century by architect Marshal Gerards. Recently renovated, the old building has conserved nearly all of his historical aesthetic and is characterized by an unusually rich ornamentation. The roof is made of Bluestone top and the white stone facade is decorated all throughout with original molded frames. Each floors have large bay windows each surmounted by a cornice with vertical piers and framed by a border of pearls and decorative spandrels. The balconies are supported by a caryatid and two atlases, all three wrapped and sculpted by the renowned Belgium Sculptor Julien Dillens. Inside the building, a spacious marble entrance hall leads you to the elevator. There is also a secure gated parking for the guests traveling by car.

Fabulous apartment, perfection!!
Oh my gosh. This property was stunning and delightful. Super clean, well equipped, well appointed, spacious, wonderful location, user friendly. The representative met us at planned time. She was lovely, met all of our needs..we were a party of 5 adults and a 1 year old. Plenty of room. We asked permission and held a birthday party/lunch. It was such a great gathering place.
We cannot say enough about this apartment. If you think the pictures are nice, in person it is even better. I would love to live in this apartment!! Having a washer and dryer was super. Private parking great. We cooked some meals in the fab kitchen.
There was a book compiled of very, very helpful instructions and resources, suggestions.
Just one thing, add a few more towels..easy...and we give you 10 stars out of 5!!! Thank you.
Loved it - just as described
Great apartment, it was just as described- open, great kitchen, spacious rooms, great location and neighborhood, easy access to public transportation.
The owner was very gracious and accommodating to our request - extremely helpful
We loved it... Plenty of space for five adults, every appliance you can imagine, located in the middle of everything including a bakery steps away, grocery store on the next block, a bank close by, just a few blocks to the Metro and plenty of restaurants and bars. The super high ceilings made the space feel so big and open.
Being in the middle of everything means you will get street noise, especially in the Master bedroom. Light sleepers will wake up to sirens, horns honking, light rail etc. If you want to sleep in and need total peace and quiet this will be an issue. If you want to get up and get to the sights it's no issue!
We were 100% thrilled with this place and would recommend completely
The apartment itself is such a pleasure to be in!
Our family of four stayed a week at the Louise Stephanie I apartment. The welcome was warm, efficient and our host was extremely helpful and welcoming. The apartment itself is such a pleasure to be in, every comfort and a large sofa to watch the enormous television from whilst watching the snow fall outside. Slept like a log every night, extremely quiet considering such a central location a few minutes walk from the metro station and shopping area. Also very easy to walk to other areas from the apartment. Thoroughly recommend.
Fantastic apartment. Great location/neighborhood!
We had a fantastic stay at this apartment in Brussels. Such a perfect location (close to tram, subway, Ave Louise grocery stores, etc) Wide array of excellent restaurants are abundant and all in walking distance. Even some good (non-Belgian) bars/restaurants if need be. We were big fans of Michael Collins Irish Pub...an easy walk away. Great Belgian beers with some comfort food and American Football to remind us of home. The apartment itself is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures online are obviously very nice, but still fall short of doing it justice. Very high ceilings and high-end everything made it a wonderful place for my wife and I to spend some time in Brussels. I am a very big fan of renting apts/flats when traveling abroad, and am relentless in my online searching for the perfect place to stay. If this apartment is even close to being in your price-range, look no further!! Even if you have to stretch a bit, it will be worth the splurge. Also, not that you need/want a car in Brussels, but there is a private parking space that comes with the apartment. We were driving in from France and needed the car park for a night before returning the car, so was a very nice bonus as well. I could easily see it being the nicest apartment we ever rent.
Don't look further! The perfect place to stay in Brussels!
