Relax, breathe and be happy. You’re in Antwerp. Take your time, make yourselves at home. Make a coffee or tea and do read these lines regarding you stay in my apartment.
1)Enjoy Antwerp. There are some guides that can take you to some nice spots in Antwerp.
2)Enjoy my apartment. It took me a lot of effort to renovate it and make it a solid base for rest and laughter while visiting Antwerp.
3)Try to move by bike in Antwerp. The city has the perfect scale and a good public-bikes-rental-system called ‘Velo’.
4)Do cross the river ‘Schelde’ with the ‘voetgangerstunnel’. The view on the other side of our big river is worth the distance.
5)Do try out some Antwerp or Belgian beer. The city centre has up to 400 bars of which some typical brown ones (meaning with old interior of woods). My favorite beers are Trippel Westmalle, Rochefort 8, Omer or Orval. If you just want normal Pils Beer. Try out Vedett. No, I am not an alcoholic, It’s just part of the culture here ;)
6)No cleaning costs will be charged … if you keep the place neat and tidy (just as you encountered it in the beginning, except bed linen). Mi casa su casa = su casa mi casa.
7)There is a dishwasher and washing machine for clothes. Cleaning product is always in a cupboard next to the machine. Feel free to use the machines.
8)For those who are keen on ‘lending things’, I’ve inventoried my belongings. I bought them and love them, so feel free to use them. But make sure I see them when I’m back.
9)For those who like discovering new places, you made the right choice to come to Antwerp. The people here have a no-nonsense mentality (it can seem unfriendly) but they just don’t know better. Don’t let it scare you. No nonsense is also the best gateway to laughter and fun.
Make yourselves at home. I hope you like it here.
Wij hebben een erg fijn verblijf gehad in Antwerpen. Het was een zeer prettige omgeving om te verblijven, lekker dicht bij het centrum met de Velo fiets. Ook hebben we goede tips gekregen. Het appartement was netjes, ruim en prettig.
Carlos was a very welcoming, pleasant, and friendly host. He was great in communications before our arrival and flexible with check-in and check-out. He also took time to talk us through places to go in Antwerp and to understand what we would be interested in. There are a number of guides to Antwerp and Belgium in the room with some very useful maps - he let us take those for the other cities which we were going to visit after our stay, which was very kind.
The apartment itself, was very stylish and yet very cosy. Everything was clean and in good working order, with a comfortable bed and powerful shower. There is a tram stop right outside, which takes you quickly to Antwerpen Centraal and a docking station for the Velo bike hire scheme, which was very useful.
We had a fantastic two nights in Carlos' place and you couldn't ask for a nicer host, I would definitely recommend staying here.
It's absolutely recommended to stay at Carlos' when visiting Antwerp. Good clean private room. Carlos was a great host and recommended some spots on the map that definately enriched our trip. Highly recommended!
Great first time airbnb stay. Carlos was very punctual with communication and once we arrived very friendly and hospital. We stay for one night and really felt at home. Very tidy, clean, everything there you need, were able to take a hot shower and slept like babies. He made a great effort to tell us about some additional hotspots that we (as regular antwerp visitors) didnt know of.
Beautiful flat and lovely people! Carlos and Stephanie are really laid-back and gave us good (insider) advice for our stay in Antwerp. The room is homely, the bed is comfy and the mosaic in the bathroom is pretty cool. Although we did not really use the kitchen, it seems well-equipped (thanks for the coffee!). In general, we felt really at home! The bike station of Velo Antwerp is very close so you can get around the city easily.
Mooi en verzorgd appartement, goed gelegen. Zeer vriendelijke gastheer. Slaapkamer is ruim, goed bed, en rustig. Wifi beschikbaar. Je kan ook gebruik maken van de zitkamer. Wij hadden hier een zeer goede ervaring.
Contact par mails et SMS. Aide pour trouver un restaurant et fourniture de documentation sur la ville. L'appartement correspond en tous points à la description. Il est spacieux, bien éclairé et très agréable. Hygiène impeccable.
I am a Mexican-Belgian 30 year old guy living in the wonderful city of Antwerp. Every Mexican lives up to the saying 'mi casa es su casa' (meaning 'my house is your house). I want to export this hospitable attitude to my hometown.
Looking for a comfortable stay in Antwerp? Want to discover more about what Belgium has got to offer, such as 1500 different delicious beers, Bruges, Ghent, Brussels, the Ardennes, chocolate truffles, Jacques Brel, Eddy Merckx, Rene Magritte,... )?
Then check out my add. I've got a fairly priced and cosy room for rent in a newly renovated appartement in the centre of Antwerp. We can communicate fluently in English, French, Dutch and Spanish. And if it's my lucky day, I can even give you my best travell tips in German ;)
