About this listing
We're offering a private and sunny appartment. It's located in a nice multicultural district, within walking distance of many cool bars. Discover a different side of Antwerp, and still be very close to the historical center.
At your disposal is an entire flat, with two bedrooms. One big, quiet room with double bed, table and wardrobe and a smaller room with two single beds. Right across the big room is the bathroom with toilet and shower. The living room is cosy with lots of light. Feel free to hang out and relax. There's also a desk, if you need to get some work done. Finally, there's a fully equipped kitchen and a sunny balcony.
Interaction with guests
We'll try to make you feel welcome and at home. Free tourist information is available. We'll try to give you tips of where to go and what to see, how to move, where to drink, to eat or to go out in Antwerp or elsewhere in Belgium.
The flat is located in a great and increasingly popular neighborhood. It's multicultural and alternative, with lots of nice bars very close. Don't worry, I'll tell you where to find them or take you there. Also around the corner there's a great art gallery, called Zeno X. And there's a legendary concert hall/cinema, called De Roma. And lots of nice restaurants, snackbars and shops, too. Plenty of groceries, bakeries, butchers and supermarkets within walking distance.
We're only 20 minutes walking from the Antwerp Central train station. Excellent railroad connections bring you to Ghent, Bruges or Brussels (city and airport) in less than an hour.
A convenient way of getting around in Antwerp is using the public bike-system, which is called Velo-Antwerpen. Check it on the web. There’s a Velo-station in front of the house and you can subscribe to a day- or week-pass on their website:
But there are also enough busses and trams. From my flat, there's a tram going to the historical centre every 10 minutes. If you prefer to walk, you can get from my flat to the old town in 30 minutes.
You can park your car on the street, the rate is 3.8 euro for 10 hrs (=1 day / free at night & on sundays). Take care: don't park in front of any garage door, even when there's no sign on it! Free parking space is approx. 750 meters away.
Other things to note
Of course (OF COURSE) there's free WIFI available.
Towels and bed linen are provided, as well as coffee and tea.
We all speak Dutch (mothertongue), English and French fluently, and some German.
No smoking except on the balcony.
Check-in time preferred between 17 and 22h (weekdays) or between 14 and 22h (sat&sun), but other arrangements can be made.
If you use the kitchen, please do the dishes afterwards. I'm having a hard time keeping up with my own! The good news is that a dishwasher is at your disposal.
Please don't eat my food :)
Please try to leave the room as you found it: clean and orderly. If you have the time, I'd appreciate if you would remove the bedding from the bed before leaving.
