I spent 20 months here, first in F8, before moving to P1 where I was for the past 12 months. The reason for my move was that F8 had a shower, whereas P1 had a bath.
Both were in a good location, less than 10 minute walk to Schuman Metro & train station, and bus stop nearby for the 21, 63 & 79 buses, the 63 taking you straight to Gare Centrale in about 10-20 minutes (depending on time of day & traffic). Links to the airport are also good here, with the 12 & 21 buses going there several times an hour, along with the direct train service now running from Schuman.
At weekends the area is quiet, but still within easy reach of the City centre.
I would recommend these apartments to anyone staying around the Brussels area for any length of time. Mme Odile is easily contactable if there any problems, and will deal with them quickly. She also provides English translations of the contracts to make it easier to understand what you are signing.
Good, clean, nicely decorated and furnished apartments in a nice area, and managed, serviced and cleaned to a high standard.

The time to say goodbye has arrived also for me... I have spent a total of 6 years in Fulton and Patriotes flats. I stayed longer in P-5 apartment.
The flat is delicious, comfortable and fully equipped and very close to Schuman square. Indeed, I have to confess that I have enjoyed living in Brussels because of the place where I have been living...Of course the great merit of all this is Odile's: she has been always available, nice and willing to help and assiste me. So, a huge and sincere thank you Odile!
I deeply recommend Odile's apartments for short or long permanence!

I have spent 5 months in a flat in Rue Fulton. F-5 is a small flat, ideal for 1 person. The apartment was clean and nice, very sunny, and has everything that I needed for my stay. The internet was fast and never had any problem with it. Odile was really friendly and helpful from the beginning, and was there anytime I needed help. The flat is 5-10 minutes walk from Scuman, but if you don't like to walk, there's also a bus stop just one street away (Gueux). The amasing Parc Cinquentenaire is also a few minutes walk from the flat. Since the apartment is in the European Quartier, it is really calm and silent during the evenings and the week ends. I enjoyed a lot my stay there, and I would definitely recommend the property of Odile for anyone who is looking for a flat in Brussels!

I spent 6 great months in the F-3 flat in Brussels. It is very well located, in a calm and beautiful area. The flat itself is very warm, very welcome and it makes you feel relaxed.
The owner, Mrs. Odile Sion, is a very nice person and we had a very good communication.

We stayed in the F-7 appartment in Brussels for about 2 years. Very good appartment, well located in the heart of Brussels, not expensive for its location and structure. We were a couple living there and we had an amazing time in Brussels and a big part of that was the comfort of our house... I would also like to say that the owner, Mrs- Odile Sion, is a very respectful person and was always comprehensive and friendly with us, making everything easier for us during our stay there. We thank her and Brussels for the amazing time that we spent there!

Stayed in this ground floor flat, It's very spacious,clean and very comfortable. It has international tv although I did not watch much of it. The best thing about this flat is it's location. You are very close to the commission and schumann metro. 25 min walk from the parliament and 40 from the centre. Lots of bars and restaurants near by. It is in a quite and safe area and I would highly recommend it and would love to stay there again. Thank you so much again for letting me stay in your flat.

I lived in the Patriotes Residence for 3 months, and everything was perfect. The apartment was clean and had everything that was needed. If I faced any problems throughout my stay, Ms. Odile would always be on the situation and resolve it quickly. The internet was nice and fast and didn’t have any problems with it. The rent was very fair, and the location of the flat was perfect; with bus stops less than a couple minuets walk and 10 minuets away from the subway along with a fair share of restaurants around. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who want to stay in Brussels.
May 09, 2015
Had a good stay in the flat. Quiet and safe neighbourhood, good facilities and transport connections. The flat is cosy and well equipped.
February 23, 2015
Thanks Odile for your smooth communication on renting the F2 flat. We stayed there for almost 3 weeks and everything was ok. The flat was clean, pretty spacious for two persons. The kitchen has the basic stuff that one needs for cooking small dishes. The internet connection is ok. The access to a washing machine and a dryer are great things! In other terms, this place fully fulfils the requirements of an apartment that is close to Schuman, shops & restaurants, public transport, a market on Sunday (in Place Jourdan). The area is very safe and parking can be easily found on the street or even on the neighbouring streets, for free!
Enjoy your stay!

I had three very nice weeks. The apartment is very well equipped. The location to the city and the Jubilee Park (jogging) is ideal. The area is very quiet and safe. Thank you for the forwarding of forgotten chocolate!

Honestly it was pleasure for me staying at your Brussels-Flats. I really enjoyed my stay b'se the apartment was big and cool, filled with everything that i needed. 24/7 water, kitchen is fully equipped. I remember i used to go to supermarket and collect everything i needed and came back to my apartment for cooking. As i am not preferring eating at Restaurants, so the kitchen and its accessories in apartment was the right place.
I would like to thank you Ms.Odile for your hospitality while i was in Brussels, definitely i wish next time when i come to Brussels i will stay in your Flats.
Congratulations for your efforts and stay blessed!

I enjoyed my stay and I thank you for the good organization.
July 14, 2014
This was my second stay at Brussels-Flats and I was very pleased this time as well. The flat is spacious for one person and in good condition. The area is quiet and close to the metro and Jubelpark. It is convenient that everything is included in the rent, and the landlady is very responsive and easy to communicate with.
July 07, 2014
I can recommend this residence very much! The flat itself is ideal and the surrounding is great. Your are in a very nice historic district outside the busy and a bit ugly European Quarter. But you can reach the European Quarter and the city centre very easily by bus, metro or even on foot. I really enjoyed my stay!
April 28, 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay for 6 months in F-2 Pharaos flat. The flat is conveniently located in the European district, with the bus line to the Airport and shops very close by. The flat was very cosy and spacious and the area in general is very safe. The landlady was very accomodating and always ready at hand to assist. I would stay again in this flat and I definitely would recommened it to anyone working in the area. 10/10 all round!
April 28, 2014
The flat in Rue de Patriotes is really nice and cosy, I have enjoyed my stay in Brussels for a few months. Odile is very friendly, helpful and very flexible, I think every landlady should be like that. The public transportation is very good in the area, the Schuman metro station is only a few minutes’ walk, and the bus to downtown goes from the corner. The next time I need to work in Brussels I will definitely contact Odile to see there if there is an empty apartment for rent! :)
April 23, 2014
The flat is well equipped and furnished conveniently for short stays. Odile is very friendly and I had a very pleasant stay.
March 23, 2014
Comfortable flat well equipped, warm. In quiet, safe location very near to public transport, local shops and supermarket. Everything is included in the rent,so there is no need to worry about any bill. The landlord, Odile, is really friendly and helpful. She was immediately available when I had a problem with a window and she managed to fix it right away. I would recommend it!
January 27, 2014
The P-1 apartment in Rue de Patriotes was my second home for six years. Cosy, well equipped, warm in the winter time, perfect location, quiet! I liked it a lot and can only recommend it. It is very handy that you have already everything in the apartment, from bed linen, hair dryer, pots and pans, TV, etc., so you just can move in only with some of your clothes. If I need an apartment in Brussels in the future, I will come back.

Hi Odile, I have just checked my bank account and can confirm that the deposit was returned. I will recommend you if anyone I know is looking for a flat near the centre of Brussels. All the best to you too.
June 26, 2013
Nice and comfortable flat, well fitted and with an excelent location. Really recommendable. Odile is really A kind and friendly person.
May 23, 2013
The accommodation is equipped, conveniently situated and at this quiet with all necessary one. The landlady is very friendlyand any time within reach.

I enjoyed my stay at Fulton Residence very much. The apartment is spacious for one person and in good condition. The area is quiet and walking distance from Schuman metro station. The landlady is responsive and easy to communicate with, also in English. It is also convenient to have practically everything included in the rent.

I have been staying for almost 2 year in the nice and cozy apartment F4. Everything went smoothly from the beginning of my stay until the last day of staying in that apartment. I have never had reasons to complain about water, energy, internet, heating. The area is calm and safe. I have never experienced any incidents on the streets near by. It Is close to shops (Delhaize, Colruyt).
I really felt good in the small but cosy apartment of Fulton Residence and I will always remember it as "my fist home in Bruxelles". :)

My best impressions of staying in this residence and thanks to Ms. Odile. Comparably to other places I had stayed before in Brussels it was the best one. Good location, good conditions - you have everything you can need for shorter or longer stay to feel like at home, very convenient transportation to the airport and to the city, nice treatment. It really fits information provided on the website :) I will highly recomend it to my colleagues coming to Brussels.
September 13, 2012
Enjoyed my stay very much, well equipped apartement and very conveniently located for working in the european quarter in a nice quiet and safe neighbourhood. Odile was helpful, uncomplicated and and always available when I needed some help and took care of it immediately. Very good experience. Highly recommendable. If I need a flat in Brussels again, I will first turn to Odile.Thanx for all
August 09, 2012
Highly recommendable, convenient and well located for work in the EU area (and for the airport bus line). Facilities are well kept and the service is great.
June 20, 2012
Thank you for the nice flat and the warm treatment.
May 31, 2012
I required a fully equipped apartment for my first month's stay in Brussels, after having been appointed by the EC. The flat corresponded perfectly to my needs. I would've stayed longer, but the flat was already re-rented, so had to find a place elsewhere.
April 23, 2012
Dear Mrs Odile Sion
Thank you very much for the appartment, it was a good and comfortable location for us.
February 22, 2012
I have enjoyed my stay. Nevertheless, of the three flats I stayed in, P-5 was definitely my favourite.
Thank you for your patience with my fussy nature, and all the best for the future.

I had already rented a flat from Odile before, so I knew it would be good. The flat was cosy, well equipped, warm and quiet. Lately I prefer to be self catering and have the possibility to wash my clothes. Would recommend to anyone that needs a temporary place to stay in Brussels.
November 24, 2011
I required a place to stay during a 2-week internship. Found a nice flat in quiet, safe location very near to public transport, local shops and supermarket. Good experience !
September 26, 2011
Brilliant accommodation for the short-term and long-term requirements. Odile was fantastic and very helpful and available when needed, having said that there were no problems with the facilities there anyway! Good area to be in for transport connections and bars/restaurants. Will definitely stay again if I were to return to Brussels.
September 16, 2011
I come often to Brussels for short period missions, Odile is my reference for accomodation as per quality of service and warm treatment. The best thing I can say about the Residence is that I already came three times....there'll surely be a fourth one!
August 07, 2011
I recommend the flat Flamenco! I stayed there for 6 months and it was very nice and cosy. The location and neighbourhood is quite and safe, but also central. The landlady helps fast and unproblematic, if anything is needed, and it is easy to contact her. I enjoyed my stay in the flat!
July 18, 2011
I stayed in the Fjord apartment for two months and enjoyed it very much. The flat is furnished very nicely, which makes you feel at home easily. Renting with this landlady is very pleasant because you don't need to worry about any bills other than the rent - everything is included. Laundry facilities, sheets and towels are provided and you don't need to waste any money on using an agency. It is easy to contact the landlady by phone or mail if any problems occur. The neighbourhood is very pleasant and safe (important in Brussels). Overall, a very recommendable place to stay!
July 18, 2011
Je suis resté 2 mois dans le flat F-5 Farouche. C'est un flat très agréable. Tous les services promis étaient présents. A recommander !
July 04, 2011
I only stayed for 1 month but the flat was very nice. At the end of the contract, when I had to leave the appartment earlier than agreed, we managed to find a good solution for both parties.
June 11, 2011
I was supposed to stay there for 4 months, it ended up to be more than 1 year! I really appreciated the un-bureaucratic terms of the contracts: you do not have to deal with contracts, bills, etc... and you can plan your expenses in advance. The apartment is very cosy, especially during the winter season, and fully furnished and equipped. The neighbourhood is wonderful (I still miss it sometimes!), close to the EU institutions, in a wonderful and very quiet residential area (but during the matches of the Spanish national team during the World Cup, you will understand why...!).
The landlady is helpful and discret and you do not need to face the formalities (and problems sometimes) of agencies, intermediaries, etc... I would recommend it.
June 08, 2011
I highly recommend the Fulton Residence of Brussels-Flats, especially for those who work in the nearby EU institutions and want a practical, pleasant, stress-free solution for their accommodation, also with an excellent price-quality ratio. I initially booked 2 months in F-7 and then moved to F-8 with a longer lease... and I found everything so perfect for my needs, that I ended up staying 3 years! The flats are very well furnished, clean, convenient, and equipped with all necessities. And what a bliss not having to deal with utilities and internet contracts, bills, and the like!? In fact having a monthly 'package' also really helps in budgeting and planning your expenses. I particularly enjoyed the peace, quiet and cosy style of F-8, and of the block in general, and certainly the highlight is Odile: a model landlady, always helpful and timely, but also very discreet and a pleasure to deal with on any occasion. I will miss the Fulton Residence, many thanks Odile and best wishes to the next tenants!

I've had a good time while staying in the flat. The landlady was always helpful in fixing problems. Due to my length I needed a different bed, which was arranged by her. The location was handy, because it is close to the institutions and to a bus to the airport. I liked the fact that you don't need to arrange things like electricity, tv and internet by yourself. One tip would be to increase the speed of internet at some point in time.
April 12, 2011
I stayed in Safari for 5 months while working at the EC. Compared to the experience of some of my colleagues who had difficulty finding accomodation, Odile made everything very straightforward an unbureaucratic - quite an achievement in Brussels!
April 01, 2011
I had previously had a 'bad' experience staying in a horrible overpriced apartment where the promised internet, laundry facilities did not exist. A friend referred me to Odile at 'Brussels-Flats' and i stayed in F-1 at Fulton for one month before i returned to UK. The difference between my first and second months stay was incredible. The apt at Fulton although small was very clean, well equipped and did indeed have ALL the extras promised including a great internet connection and laundry facilities. Odile was always available if there was any issue and I cannot recommend Odile or her accommodation more highly. If you rent from 'Brussels-Flats' you will get great service and great vfm - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
