Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time in Faty's lovely apartment. It is clean, spacious, and perfectly located in Antwerp. Nice kitchen, nice bathroom, nice everything. And Faty was very helpful and flexible, and gave us plenty of tips for things to do and see. And, she gave us food -- fresh fruit, bread, and ham. We couldn't have asked for a better host. We would definitely stay here again.

  • We had a wonderful time here, and Faty was a great host! The location is perfect for going to the Plantin-Moretus (which we loved), or the Kathedraal area. Faty provided great amenities - fresh bread for breakfast, and the bed, towels, etc were very comfortable.

  • Faty is a lovely host who is very easy to communicate with. The flat was very clean with everything we needed and in a great location in Antwerp.

    March 2014
  • We stayed in Faty's apartment for 4 days and the experience couldn't have been better. The flat has a lot of natural light and it's very conveniently located close to the main museums and places of interest. The flat faces the Vrijdagmarkt, which is a very quite place full of cafes and restaurants, as well as the Plantin-Moretus museum, which is a must in any trip to Antwerp.
    We were travelling with a baby, and Faty provided a crib, chair and park for the baby (all for free).
    The bedroom is comfortable, the bathroom and shower work perfectly and there is a large dining room for eating and watching TV.
    Faty was helpful throughout the whole reservation process, and during our stay. We had lived in Antwerp before, so we didn't need much help with directions and recommendations, but she was willing to suggest places to have dinner nearby the apartment.
    In a nutshell, really great place to stay if you travel to Antwerp.

  • The apartment is perfect. Communication with Faty was quick and easy, there is free parking 5 mins walk and the apartment is very convenient to anywhere you want to be. It is clean and well stocked, one bedroom with a pullout sofa for additional space. Will definitely stay here again.

  • Faty is a kind and friendly host. Apartment is very spacious and well equipped. Huge windows that make it super bright. Perfectly located in the old town of Antwerp, shopping, restaurants and nightlife... Will definitely visit again!

    February 2014
  • Spent three nights at Faty's flat, and we had a great time! The apartment is located on a cute little square within walking distance to practically everything. It's beautifully decorated with big windows, and big but cozy. Faty was also kind enough to have a few baby supplies at hand for our little one, and there was tasty food in the pantry. We highly recommend it, would hope to stay there again if we ever return to Antwerp. Thanks, Faty!

  • We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in Antwerpen en B en B van Faty: schoon en alles voorradig en een gevulde koelkast was fijn!
    We komen vast nog eens terug, alles was prima!!!

  • Great well-equipped, quiet and well taken care of place right in the centre of Antwerp, just opposite the Plantin Museum..
