La Maison de la Poupee
Reviewed 14 May 2013

You would never expect that there is such a sweet cosy cottage apartment situated right in the midst of the Brussels' most touristy place. It is just 5 mins walk from the train station, and 1 min walk to the Grand Place! As it is situated inside a small lane, it is also shielded from the hustle and bustle of the numerous restaurants right outside the apartment. There is so much action going on, within walking distance. We could reach the Grand Place, Rue des Bouchers, Galerie St Hubert all in 5 mins and explore the area early morning or late night at our own convenience.

The apartment we stayed in was decorated in a very nice cottage style, with white furniture and a fireplace. The kitchen and appliances were sufficient to whip up a good meal if you should choose to do so, as there is a supermarket situated just off the Grand Place. The owner Valerie has all the information ready to share with you, in a little booklet that is placed in the room, and she was always so prompt in answering emails on questions regarding the place. Besides that, the price of the room is very reasonable for one that is situated so near to Grand Place!

I would definitely recommend this accommodation if you are in Brussels!

Valerie has flats in two different establishments separated by a little road - one on Impasse de la Poupee and the other Rue des Eperonniers. Before arriving, I was worried about whether I would be able to find the flat easily or not (as the street is not picked up by Google Map), but thanks to Valerie's detailed direction, it was not as difficult as I feared. We stayed in a studio on Rue des Eperonniers, and it is just across Mozart Hotel. It was very recently renovated to high standards, and was spacious enough for four people. Both the bed and the sofabed were very comfortable. The TV has countless channels and Wifi works very well. Coffee, tea and biscuits are provided and the kitchen is very well equipped that it feels almost like home.

Because we were there from the New Year's Eve, we knew that we would never be able to have a good night's sleep in silence that day. It turned out to be true as it is located so near the Grand Place with people having fun on the streets until the early morning. That said, the location is unbeatable as it is just minutes away from Grand Place and the Central Railway Station so it was easy to travel to other Belgian cities.

The price is also very reasonable, and we would have had to pay at least double or triple of what we paid if we had chosen to stay in a hotel in the high season of end of/beginning of the year. I found hotels in Brussels charging very high price for breakfasts - having a kitchen, fridge, and dining table allowed us to have meals of our choice whenever we wanted for great value.

Overall, I would highly recommend Valerie's flats to everyone who visits Brussels for tourism.

I've stayed at the Maison de la Poupee with some friends for 4 days and I simply loved this place.
Is in the very center of the city, just next to the Grande Place, and just few minutes walking from the train central station and subway.
The appartament we stood in was just so beautiful, with everything you need, a kitchen with all supplies, wi-fi, tv, a big bathroom, two confortable sofa and beds, and everything was very cleaned. We had a lot of space for all our stuff.
The owner was so kind, I contacted her by e-mail, she provided all the informations about the appartament and how to get there; she has been very helpfull and answeared to all my questions very clearly and so fast.
Besides is absolutely economic.
This place is perfect for everybody, friends, family or couples!

We staied at La Maison de la Poupee for our wedding anniversary in December 2011. I think it has been our best choice, not only for our trip in Bruxelles, but in absolute, it has been one of the best apartments we staied. Central, close to La Gran Place, everything you need close to you. Valerie was a fantastic host. The apartment is very very nice, with all you need at your disposal. I have suggested to all my friends and parents that has been in Bruxelles. and if I'll be again in Bruxelles, la Maison de la Poupee will be certainly our home.
