There is no better place for getting to know Antwerp than Miertje's perfect little place in the middle of the old center of the city. Everything can be reached by simply walking through the wonderful streets of Antwerp. The apt. itself is directly above a wonderful cafe which was not noticeable throughout our stay of 6 days (Try their African ginger tea, it is delicious). Miertje is a wonderful host full of good advice. She gave us a warm welcome and with her resourcefullness she also gave us a good first orientation. The apt. is just as described and it looks out on the Vrijdagmarkt which is a very relaxed little space within the liveliness of the old centre. We will gladly come back!
Clean, neat, warm and safe place right in the centre of Antwerp. Nice owner, everything went smoothly.
Het appartement op de Vrijdagmarkt in Antwerpen is een fantastische keus voor een weekendje weg in deze heerlijke stad. Het is supernetjes en schoon en erg centraal gelegen. Miertje was erg gastvrij en behulpzaam. We verbleven er met vier volwassenen wat betekent dat er twee mensen in de huiskamer op de slaapbank moeten slapen maar dat was absoluut geen straf! Heerlijke bedden, schone handdoeken en superkoffie, alles goed geregeld.
This is a wonderful property. We are a fit couple about 50 y.o. each, and love to shop for food in foreign countries and cook it ourselves. We love coffee, quaint living rooms and playing Scrabble. We LOVE being centrally located, and not have to take a bus or subway to get to the quaint and historic. If THIS resonates with you, then Miertje's property is for you! There isn't much to complain about, and there's MUCH to praise! The bottom line is that we had a great time and have no regrets! We were in a quiet apartment, with loads of natural light, in the heart of historic Antwerp, surrounded by coffee shops, Museums, historic squares and interesting shops. I'll start with whatever I can think of that fell short a bit: 1) The apt. is one just flight up from the street, but the steps are steep and narrow. This cuts both ways, actually. If you want the Building Code of 21st Century America, don't bother going to Europe altogether - particularly the historic districts! This wasn't a deal breaker by any stretch, but be ready to take your luggage up one piece at a time (advice: travel light!) 2) Could Miertje invest in the shower, and make it a bit more luxurious, instead of just average? I don't exactly know what her expense overhead is, but I guess she could. 3) I wish it was just a bit cheaper to rent in late January, but that's Europe, there ARE heating expenses, and it's a competitive marketplace! More than that, I can't think of anything even questionably bad to say! The apartment was 100% clean. There were a good 20-30 new towels. No laundry, but we didn't need any. The kitchen was fine, with loads of things that made life easier (utensils, coffee, salt, pepper, etc). A mixture of antiques and IKEA, everything was just right for a couple looking for a romantic weekend in historic Belgium. We got to know Miertje a bit when we arrived at around 20:30 pm. Miertje is an artsy, creative person who lived in the US for a few years in the '80s. She's a pleasant, happy humanist, with obviously great EQ. She was not in our hair, we didn't see her again, and she even let us "check out" by ourselves at 7 AM, simply by leaving the keys in the apartment and pulling shut the door from the street! Miertje lives in a different neighborhood, so we weren't running into her A gruff landlord can ruin a mood, and we didn't have that experience!
In short, if you want elevators, the hum of vacuums and room service - check into a Marriott! If you want an authentic historic "local" experience in Antwerp - this is The Genuine Article! I'D DO IT AGAIN, EXACTLY THE SAME WAY!
Miertje kindly waited until almost midnight for us to get into the city, and when we arrived we found the apartment clean, pretty and with a great location. It was a pleasure to stay here and I hope to come back one day.
Nice and very clean appartment, excellent location. We stayed here with four girls and had a great time.
Miertjes apartment made our stay in Antwerp perfect! It was sooo comfy. There was everything we needed :-) The oven kept us warm :-) Also the key-handover worked out perfectly. All in all: A wonderful apartment for a wonderful visit to Antwerp!
Aanrader! Miertje biedt een fijn en sfeervol appartement van alle gemakken voorzien in hartje Antwerpen op loopafstand van veel. Met zijn tweeën is het voldoende ruim. Met 3 of 4 personen zou ook kunnen, er is een bedbank. Van het onderliggende café hadden wij geen last - onhoorbaar, sluit om 20u - er is hooguit wat reuring op straat, maar dat heb je overal in het midden van de stad. Géén ontbijt, wel een goede bakker en een super om de hoek. Desgewenst heeft Miertje tips over wat er te zien en te doen is.
Wij hadden een hele fijne ontvangst en heerlijk verblijf nabij het bruisende centrum van Antwerpen.
Our stay in Miertje'flat was great. Miertje welcomed us with all tips and maps to visit the city.
The flat is located in the olde city on a small square at 2mn walk from the cathedral and just next to nationan sreet which is the fashion designes's street.
Tere was all you need for breakfast . With these big windows the sun ligtht s the space just above that charming quiet square. Decoration is made with good taste.
We 've loved our stay in this flat.
