The bedroom is very spatious and with a lot of light during the day, which is nice to sit on the terrace. Equiped with a large bed, cold and hot water, a couch, a desk and a small terrace.

All equipment is available to cook. Stores to buy fresh food are next door. But I can also advice some nice places for breakfast/lunch/dinner.

Interaction with Guests
I like to offer you a comfortable and cosy home.
If you want to spent time together, it's possible if my agenda allows it, but all respect to your privacy.
I hope you may spend a memorable time in Antwerp.
Zuid is where Antwerp's cultural hearts beats and the neighborhood has three fabulous museums to underscore this point: MHKA (Museum of Contemporary Art), FoMu (The Museum of Photography) and KMSKA (The Royal Museum of Fine Arts). Along Waalsekaai and Vlaamsekaai, the former South Docks, you will encounter several galleries specializing in contemporary arts as well as exclusive design and interior stores. Volksstraat has more clothes stores and bakeries. In the evenings Zuid has a bustling nightlife scene thanks to the many restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. it is also the perfect place for a delicious breakfast or an original brunch the morning after.
From my apartment it is very easy to discover The South by foot. If you enjoy walking, it is also possible to sightsee the city center and north of Antwerp by foot from my location (straight line walking south to north is about 40minutes walk).
I provide two bikes, which makes sightseeing; small or big Antwerp, less tedious. It allows you to go anywhere anytime and you have more opportunity to breathe in the atmosphere of the city.
From Central station you can take a bus (290, 500 or N29) or tram (24 or 4). From Central station to Brederodestraat, the tram stops at the stop called "Antwerpen bestorming". From there it is half a minute walk to the apartment.
There are many parkingoptions if you arrive by car. The most interesting place is the free parking spot at the Kaai, which is a few minutes walk from the apartment.
It is also possible to park in the street or nearby streets. It is free: the first 10 minutes, before 9 o'clock and after 19 o'clock and on Sundays.
Otherwise you pay 0,70€ the first hour and 1,10€ the consequent hours (for max 10hours).
Other Things to Note
Two bikes are available for rent (5€/bike, unlimited use)
During july/august it is possible to rent the whole apartment on certain dates.
There are two lovely but shy cats; Jazzy and Rozijn.
Smoking is allowed outside on the terrace.
I and my friend Lilia had a wonderful stay at Ruth's place. Though we were a little bit late, she waited for us and cerefully explained us everything about the maps and places to eat breakfast. The room is medium size - very comfortable with lots of nice plants. Everything was clean and nice. Ruth is a wonderful host. And this is a nice area not far from the center and with different nice cafes.
Ruth's house was wonderful, clean and big enough. It was really sad that I could stay just one night. Moreover Ruth provided us really useful information and she was willing to help us!! Totally recommendable! Thanks Ruth :)
Séjour très agréable et chambre en tous points conforme à la description établie sur le site.
Ruth est une hôte d'une grande gentillesse : très accueillante, elle nous a permis, par ses conseils et sa documentation personnalisée (nombreuses cartes géo, tips des autres voyageurs, astuces pour se garer gratuitement), de découvrir Anvers avec beaucoup de facilité.
Bedankt Ruth !
Ruth was one of our best experience from Airbnb so far. She showed us the best place to visit and her room is simply beautiful:) We highly recommend to stay at her place!
Ruth est très accueillante et vraiment très sympathique. elle a pris le temps de nous expliquer à l'aide d'une carte (il y a pas mal de brochures concernant la ville mises à disposition dans la chambre) ce qu'il y avait d'intéressant à voir par quartier. la chambre est très belle et très lumineuse, et est pourvue d'un joli petit balcon où prendre le soleil. nous recommandons Ruth, et si l'envie nous reprend de revenir à Anvers, nous penserons indiscutablement à loger chez elle.
Ruth made me feel very welcome even before I arrived with very detailed and helpful instructions about her place, how to get there, where to park, etc. It's a great apartment in a very nice part of town but the best thing about it is the bedroom – a really lovely, big room. Appreciated the chocolates, too.
