“Large apartment, great location”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

The aparthotel is a perfect location for anyone interested in the fashion zone - just down the road from MoMu. The owner couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, and we really appreciated the comfortable L-shaped sofa in the large, stylishly decorated living room (bare brick walls, wood floors, big floor lamps - yes, very IKEA but well chosen....).
Its probably not the place to choose if you want professional hotel service - room cleaning, soap in the bathroom (we had to ask) - but personally I don't like being crammed in to a bedroom and being surrounded by hundreds of other people in a corporate setting. This feels like your own spacious apartment.
It was not busy when we were there, so we only heard noise from another apartment on the Saturday night - but the walls are paper thin so I can imagine this could be a problem. And there was no heating/towel rail in the bathroom though there was a good, hot shower. But as long as you don't go expecting luxury I think you will be pleasantly surprised by this place....

The apartment was a wonderful surprise, clean spacious and equiped with everything that you need for a comfortable stay. Location is close to shops and sites, everything within walking distance and of course the staff always willing to help with directions or recomendations. I had no problems with the internet connection but if you are unable to climb alot of stairs i would recomend requesting the first floor apartment.
Van Hecke (waffle house) is right downstarirs, Zora is an amazing cook, every meal is delicious. My favorite meal is hard to pick but no matter what meal you choose I know you will not leave hungry as the portions are huge and delicous. After walking through shops and seeing the sights make sure you try Zora's waffles- mouth watering- the best ever :)
Thank you Zora for an amazing stay

It was wonderful to stay in a place with a separate bedroom and living room, all was excellent, and the 2 girls, Yasmina and Zoha, are the best hosts, so warm and helpful. The only issue was that the internet connection was really poor, and failed to work many evenings, so if you really need to be connected, not the best choice, however, if you want a place full of character and lots of space, right in the middle of town, this is your best choice!

Room Tip: No lifts, so if you can't take too many stairs, ask for the room in the first floor.
