A 2,5 floor apartment in the middle of Antwerp with a duplex bedroom: 5 min away from the Meir, public transport & rental bikes.
Hello! Nice to meet you.
Let me guide your around my home!
--- Tell me, where is it? ---
The duplex room is part of a 2,5 floor apartment in the middle of Antwerp: just an easy stroll (about 5 min) away from the Meir (Antwerp's main shopping street), trams, busses, train station and rental bikes.
The Keyserlei is also a 5 min walk from my place: there you can find numerous restaurants, a cinema, the zoo and a fitness.
You can find the the public library around the corner as well. It's on a little square where there's also a nice coffee bar. My favorite Thai place is not far away either. All spots are marked in the neighborhood guidebook I made here on Airbnb.
--- What does it look like? ---
Well, it's located in a typical old mansion (think: wooden floors, authentic elements, and very light: we love sunshine!) The apartment starts on the second floor of the house, please keep in mind there are some steps to climb (that's the way it goes in old mansions :)).
1st floor: laundry room & toilet
2nd floor: living room & kitchen
3rd floor: my bedroom, the shared bathroom (shower + toilet) and your place to stay (the duplex room)
You'll have your own private living area (couch, living room table, ...) & desk with stairs up to the sleeping area. The bathroom is shared (with me). There's a double sleeping bed/futon (with a standard bed mattress) and a fan for summer days & heating for winter.
Maximum 2 people can stay at the apartment. There's a blanket to get cozy in the couch, soap & shampoo in case you forgot & towels. I have a hair dryer you can use as well and if there's anything else you would need: just ask :)
Take a look around, and do let me know if you have any more questions!
You'll have access to every room, except to my own bedroom.
Interaction with guests
I'm mostly out during the day (working) and weekends can be busy as well but I'm there in the evening if you have any questions or want to have a chat :) You'll have a lot of privacy as your room has its own living room & bureau but you're always welcome downstairs as well.
Other things to note
My apartment is officially registered as a guesthouse and therefore meets all the required safety regulations set by the city council (fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, emergency escape exists on every floor,...).
Smoking only allowed on the balcony :) - so not inside the apartment.
Check in is flexible, but needs to be checked in advance: I will always try to make the time to let you in, hand you the keys and show you around the house.
Check out time is based on what suits you best.
