About this listing
Rent a room within a 125yrs old castle apartment located within the city limits of Antwerp. Everything has been recently renovated with nice Oriental touches and the artist-owner's paintings and a unique signature marble floor.
A private elevator will bring you straight into this apartment, and you will have your own key to your space.
You will be blown away with the private space that includes a lush bathroom with a huge round whirlpool jacuzzi in the castle's mosaic tiled tower room, a separate multifunctional shower with rain shower and jet massage showers, and a large windowed Finish sauna with ample space to lay down. There's also a fully automated shiatsu seat which will give you a great body massage. This will be private for your own use during the stay.
LED lights will set the mood right for a romantic evening and modern appliances such as sensor light switches and dimmed lights, as well as coded entry passes are all part of this luxurious get-away.
this is part of the same location you can rent as a whole apartment (see pictures on the other listing)
by opting for the room, you will not have access to the terrace, living room nor kitchen.
bedroom, bathroom, wellness and toilet are completely seperated from the rest of the apartment and accesible through one door.
it will be your own private oasis.
Interaction with Guests
The space you are using is yours during the whole stay. I travel a lot, if I am home I will make sure to double check on your room while you visit the city. Upon your arrival you will get a full tour with instructions how to use everything and you will get a written manual should you forget anything. Furthermore you will be shown the map of Antwerp and your location and pending your interests you will get directions and tips where to go or what to do. During your stay i will always be reachable for aditional assistance if needed.
I'm sure you will find it so relaxing and cozy you probably may want to cocoon the entire stay.
But then again there is so many to see in Antwerp. So much to choose from: museum, shopping, restaurants, beach, waterfront, biking trails, diamonds, chocolates, fashion, the list never ends.
Summer or winter, Antwerp has many things to offer year-round.
The place is very close to the heart of Antwerp city and the harbor, and just few steps from the Diamond district and worlds voted nr 1 most beautiful railway station.
from my place it's easy to get around, most people will love to walk to the city (about 15-20minutes) or others will take the bus or tram pending where they want to go.
or you can rent a city bike (velo. be) at a terminal just around the corner for about 3.80€/day
To get to my place is also easy: if you come by train I suggest you step off just before the central station stop, it's called Antwerpen Berchem. This stop is only a 15minutes walk from my place and is easy to find.
