• Our Cute Apartment In Brussels

    Take a little look into our cute apartment in Brussels. We had a really cute apartment in Brussels called Apartment Stephanie which was hosted by AirBnB. The apartment is in the Saint-Gilles area of Brussels near the Hôtel des Monnaies/Munthof metro station. Me and Amy decided to have Brussels as our base and then travel out via train to our other chosen destinations as it was easier to navigate around by train.

    It was also the best hub to be near the airport as well, for when we wanted to travel back home. We booked the apartment for 4 nights and we paid £121 each towards the apartment, which also included the cleaning and service fee. It had the most perfect decor being so chic and bohemian it spoke to my vibes so well. I loved the decor!

    Our apartment was on the third floor of the block which wasn’t too bad. But it did have a very dodgy lift that we thought we’d got stuck in. Turns out it’s quite sensitive to people being near the doors and it just stops. So we refused to use it until we needed to bring our cases back down. The apartment itself is really spacious with a great sized living room and kitchen area. A double bed in the bedroom and a nice bathroom and utility area. The decor was so cute with chic fur rugs and lots of indoor plants.

    The sofa pulled out into another double bed so me and Amy had a double bed each. The tv unfortunately only had one English channel that we could get and the bath was slightly weird to have a shower in. But we made it work for the time we were there. The apartment was fully equipt with working WiFi, hairdryer, washing machine and cleaning products and an iron/ironing board. Me and Amy agreed to split some things between the two of us, me bring shampoo/conditioner and she bought the shower gel. And then I brought my straighteners and she brought her hairdryer. Just because we both took hand luggage so it was a better idea to split between the two of us and save some space in our luggage.


    Our apartment was quite close to a metro station which was really handy to get around. The main train station we needed to use was Brussels Midi which connects you to the other train stations including the airport. The metro station closest to us which we used was Hôtel des Monnaies/Munthof. It is on the southern segment of line 2 of the metro system. It was built in 1988 and it definitely felt like it, it felt like we was still in WW2 or something.

    Metro tickets for a single trip cost around £8.00 but we found they also did 24 hour tickets which were £6.70 that was worth doing. It was definitely confusing at first getting used to the metro station. As there are so many different platforms and it’s always hard getting used to it in a new country. But we sort of got the hang of it in the end. We mainly used lines 2 (Orange) and 6 (Blue) to get where we needed to go. I think it was harder for us to get used to our line as it’s like the circle line which almost goes around in a circle but not quite.

    I would definitely book in our little apartment again for another short break. Although I’m not sure if I’d stay in Brussels next time.
