Temporary Accommodation Guide
It is relatively easy to find a serviced apartment in the city as several companies do specialize in providing serviced apartments in the name of temporary accommodation. The costs vary depending on the location with the more expensive units being close to the European sector. Most of the apartment providers are willing to negotiate prices should a long stay be required and it is advisable to call them and try to work out an agreement. When booking, usually 10% is taken upfront and the rest paid upon arrival at the property. Internet is usually available, although an extra fee may be charged. Below are a few options for serviced apartments.
Moveandstay.com – Through this agency you are able to book online and they have apartments listed from around the city. Some of their apartments do not require more than a one night stay. Their website http://www.moveandstay.com/brussels/servicedapartments.asp provides maps showing the location of apartments listed and the utilities included on the listing. For more information you can contact them by phone +44 20 3286 1188

Brussels Business Flats – Offering apartments in three of the more popular and affluent areas in the city, close to the European district and also metro stations. Apartments do come with internet and range from studios to 3 bedrooms. Again, pricing for longer stays can be negotiated. Booking is not as simple as just paying on the website, however, as a series of back and forth emails requesting prices, available dates and other information are required. A phone call is often more efficient. More information can be found at http://www.bbf.be/
