Very nearby there are a lot of shops, small restaurants, bars, charming squares, etc. Underground/Metro/Buses are just a few minutes walk away, giving excellent access all around Brussels. The closest Metro/Underground brings you in about ten minutes (2 stops) to the Central train station, where you have a direct connection to the Airport.
Great fashion shopping is just minutes walk away and around the corner you will find great squares like the old Fish Market and the Place Sainte-Catherine. This area is well-known for its gastronomic tables (where you can also eat outdoors by fair weather).
