About this listing
This spacious apartment comes with a private kitchen, one separate bedroom, plus beds for four persons, a bathroom and separate toilet.
At walking distance from Central Station and the historical center, this is a great home away from home! ;)
I've lived in this neighbourhood for about twenty years now and actually love the vibrant atmosphere. This apartment is quiet, spacious and offers you a lot of privacy... A 'what you see is what you get' deal.
My shop is at the ground floor, the storage is on the first floor and this apartment is on the second floor. You'll be the only guests in the entire house.
Smoking is absolutely, positively, seriously 100% forbidden!
You'll have a private kitchen, bathroom and separate toilet, a bedroom with double bed and a spacious living room with sleeping accomodations for up to four extra persons.
I'll be closeby, but not on the same floor, unless you would need something. The apartment has high speed wifi (my account allows for internet access in the entire city as well, you don't have to be close to the modem to get service) and I'm easy to reach on my mobile phone.
The house is 750 meters from the Central Station and 1,7 kilometers (just over 1 mile) from the cathedral.
If that's too far to walk (it does occasionally rain here, or you might be exhausted from the shopping), metro station Elisabeth is around the corner, offering two direct lines to the old center.
Restaurants serving fresh fish, beer bars and a cinema complex with 19 movie theaters just a few blocks away... Antwerp is an ideal city to explore safely on your own or in a group. Compact, filled with contrasting beauty: old and new, trendy and down to earth, modestly priced and expensive... It's all here!
If you would come by car: There is a parking garage at the end of my street that is safe ànd cheap, it costs only 6€ per 24 hours. it closes between 20:45 and 06:30, though.
If you would come by train: From Central Station it's a ten minute (slow) walk to my place. Exit the station at te side of the Zoo. You'll see a brightly colored RadissonBlu hotel on the other side of the square, with a Chinese gateway next to it. Go through the gateway and when you arrive at the smaller square at the end of that street, turn right.
You are now in the Lange Beeldekensstraat. Continue until you get to number 77 and I'll be there to hand you over the keys and wifi code ;)
If this is your first visit to Antwerpen, I'll gladly give you some pointers on where to go and how to get there.
Metrolines number 2 and 5 around the corner ('Elisabeth' station) offer direct connections with the old center ('Groenplaats').
Bikes can be rented around the corner as well, but everything can be reached on foot.
City maps, wifi code and keys are always handed over by me personally upon your arrival.
*The non-smoking part: it's important*
Faultless service. Lovely welcome and did amazing at showing us the important places to visit. Definitely recommend!
Wat een prachtig appartement en een zeer aardige verhuurder! Timur helpt je waar nodig is en kan de leuke plekken in Antwerpen aanwijzen. Mede door hem in straten geweest waar we anders niet hadden gekeken :) Bedankt Timur, zeker omdat je zo met ons hebt meegedacht!
Super mooi apartement op een goede locatie! We hebben genoten, het was prachtig! Voor herhaling vatbaar!
We didnt meet with Timur but met with his friend, she is very kind and showing us around the house and recommended us the important tourist spot for Antwarp.
The apartment is in a very good location about 15 mins walk to central station and about 2 km to town. It on 2nd floor, not recommend for big luggage. Wifi is strong, shower is warm. This is good.
We enjoyed out stay with Timur
Timur was not in town when we were, but he had a helpful neighbor let us. The apartment was nice, clean, and unique. The neighborhood was a bit noisy, but it was very close to the train station and the historic and shopping districts - very convenient!
At the first time we stepped our feet to the room, even though we already knew what it was going to be, we felt really surprised; the apartment was much more cooler than the photos! For a group of 5 people like my family, it was really really spacious. Timur was also very kind by providing us with tons of foods and essentials at the kitchen cabinets (tea, coffee, honey, olive oil, salt, pepper, etc.). The books at the apartment were very interesting (and rare too I think). Cleanliness was also at best under Timur supervision I guess!
To sum up, when you stayed at Timur's place, you will never get bored because there were always many interesting to see and you will feel very welcomed since Timur was a very warm and friendly guy. (Thanks to the Storm Trooper too who was always guarding our room all the time ;) )
Timur is een ontzettend vriendelijke en behulpzame Airbnb'er. Zijn ruimte is verzorgd en fijn en wij zullen er zeker terug komen!
About the Host, Timur
Hi, I am Timur ;)
I've been an AirBnB host for about a year now, in another location in the same street. After receiving quite a lot of requests for an entire apartment, it is now available for groups up to four (even six) persons... Hope you'll enjoy staying here!
