Moving To Brussels

It’s an exciting experience relocating to a new country whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth and moving to Brussels is no different.  Brussels is a city filled with diversity, you will experience incredible new tastes, sounds, languages and cultures all with its conveniently connected transportation network. 

However, when you first arrive it can be challenging to know which area of this diverse city will best meet your lifestyle and community needs.  Also, if you aren’t familiar with Brussels’ commune government system and its unique quirks, you might want to take some time to decide on where you will call home long term.  Some other considerations to think about include.

Location, location, location

As mentioned, Brussels in a diverse city with over 18 different communes, how do you know which one is best for you? This is why it’s important to talk to locals and find out about the different neighbourhoods.  With over 28 years working in Brussels our bi-lingual sales team can help you navigate this decision.  We have also built up a portfolio of over 1700 apartments across 34 different locations which means that no matter where you decide to stay, we are sure to have an apartment nearby that will meet your needs.

Utilities and high speed internet

This is a big positive of first staying in a serviced apartment. Unlike a typical rental, serviced apartments come fully furnished with all utilities and services included. This means no need to deal with local suppliers in different languages connecting your water, electricity or internet.  When you walk into a serviced apartment you walk into a fully connected environment that’s ready to video call your family back home and let them know you arrived safely. 

Fully equipped kitchen

Another big plus is the fully equipped kitchens.  Eating out constantly can get expensive and exhausting.  All BBF serviced apartments come fully equipped with everything you will need to cook a delicious meal at home.  Pots, pans, utensils, plates, you name it, we have it ready for you to use in your own apartment.

Cleaning and Linens

With COVID-19 still prevalent around the world it’s critically important that you feel safe in your apartment.  This is why BBF apartments provides fortnightly cleaning services included in their serviced apartment package.  Our cleaners not only refresh your apartment, but they also change your linens and towels too, so you don’t need to worry about the washing. 

In-House Maintenance Services

There is nothing worse that having an issue in your apartment that you need to wait 2 weeks for a technician to come and fix.  With our in-house maintenance team, it’s quick and simple to lodge a maintenance request on our website and have a technician come out to your apartment and look at the problem.  When you are busy settling into a new project or role at work, this kind of hassle-free experience is really important. 

These are just some of the perks of having a serviced apartment when you first move to Brussels, and with contracts starting from only 3 months, you can take your time to find the right neighbourhood to suit your lifestyle and community needs.
