It is a basic apartement and has one bedroom. 1 double bed, 1 single and an air mattress for 2 persons.
I will also be staying in the apartment during your stay, so it will be a shared apartment with me.
The location of the apartment is very unique, in the middle of the city, 100 m from the central train station of Antwerp. Excellent public transport connections; just walk 50 meters and you can catch any bus, metro, tram and train to anywhere you want. There are more than 5 paid parking in 100 m distance, free parking on the streets is possible, but a safer and bigger and more efficient parking place is Park & Ride just 10 minutes from my place, there you can park for free, safe and as long as you want.
Almost all attractive places are on walking distancce: bars, restaurants, supermarkets, Cinema, the Meir shopping district, the Zoo, diamond museum, Aquatopia and the Opera House are just on 1 - 3 minutes walking distance. Other museums are also reachable by walking but if you take a tram or metro you will be there in 5 minutes.
You have access to almost everything; free Wi-Fi internet, TV, DVD/Blue-ray home cinema, play-station, kitchen (fully equipped) and bathroom. Clean towels are available.
Interaction with Guests
I will be present during your stay, I stay in the living, but the bedroom will be all yours. you can also make your own breakfast and dinner so the kitchen is all in your service.
The street next to my apartment is a shopping street, so you can just come down and do your shopping or walk 300 m to Meir, an other big and modern shopping street to do your shopping, Media Markt, McDonald's, Quick and hundreds of other restaurants, shops, night shops are just on 2-5 m walking distance.

Sam Maiwand is een aardige en flexibele host. Wij konden zonder probleem eerder komen en wat langer in de kamer blijven dan gepland.
It is really free to stay in this flat which is convenient to central station by foot with only few minute. The host is really friendly and open-minded who has experienced different culture and trip in numerous countries worldwide. It is a nice place to stay. :))
Sam's place was very good to stay. It is close to train station and so it was very convenient. Sam is also friendly. His place can nicely accommodate 4 people, as we were four. I would recommend Sam if you are going to stay in antwerp.
Ik heb het prima naar mijn zin gehad bij Sam! Je slaapt zelf in de slaapkamer en hij slaapt in de woonkamer. Er was iets fout gegaan waardoor er een dubbele boeking was, maar dit is netjes opgelost doordat de ander in de woonkamer sliep en Sam bij een vriend. We konden het goed vinden en hij kan lekker koken. We zijn zelfs op stap geweest! Ik ben heel tevreden over het verblijf!
Sam was flexibel met het ontvangen en vertrekken. Vriendelijk ontvangst en gaf ook nog enkele tips over de stad. Werd ook niet moeilijk gedaan over 's nachts laat binnenkomen.
Appartement was verder prima en lekker ruim. De beschrijving voldoet aan de realiteit. Ideaal voor kort verblijf. Zat ook nog eens dichtbij centraal station en 20 min lopen naar het centrum en uitgaansgebied.
As a first-timer, it is always nice to get accepted. Sam offered to host my girlfriend and me for two nights and we are really grateful for it. The apartment wasn't the nicest looking one, nor was it the one advertised on this page, but we still had a very pleasant experience. Sam's (second) house was located in a neighborhood with a melting pot of cultures, which made for a very warm atmosphere. Sam greeted us upon arrival and gave us some tips on what to do. It was a bit of a hassle to return his keys but that was probably due to Christmas closures.
