It was my home and I really like it, hope you do also and behave as it was yours ;-)
Jean was a great host telling us all we needed for a wonderful design filled stay in Antwerp AND he provided a wonderful place for us to stay - felt just like home and was great to come home to at night. We wish him the best of luck in the future.
Het appartement was zeer ruim en alles was schoon dus we voelden ons gelijk op ons gemak. Verder was het dichtbij het centrum: 5 minuten lopen tot de grote winkelstraat. Jean was ook heel erg flexibel met het in- en uitchecken, wat zeer relax was.
Jean's apartment is really cool and stylish with lots of interesting objects and leaflets on where to go out and eat, which was really helpful. The location is perfect, really central, and there's loads of lovely shops and cafes nearby and some Velo stations if you feel like renting a bike. We where late arriving and Jean and Sharon where really easy and flexible about check in and out, also really helpful! Jean also has mugs! This doesn't sound important, but when your the sort of people who travel with your own English tea bags this is a big deal! All round great trip!
Top appartement! Alles was goed geregeld sleutels lagen netjes klaar en hebben een zeer leuke tijd gehad!
Appartement zag er schoon en netjes uit! Midden in het centrum en alles is goed bereikbaar met de tram, ideaal om antwerpen te verkennen!
Jean's apartment is just great. We've spent 3 days there and it was perfect in every respect. Centrally located, totally easy to get there and to get anywhere from there. Bike rental, tram stations around the corner - the city centre is in walking distance, though.
The apartment is super friendly, bright, clean and very cosy - you can find here everything you need.
The communication with Jean was easy, checking-in and checking-out ditto. His recommendations on the site are helpful; he's also placed plenty of maps and brochures in the apartment. We're grateful to Jean, for us it was the perfect stay in Antwerp and hope to return sometimes soon.
Very good reactivity of Jean for a very last minute booking. Nice apartment in a nice area. I would definitely recommend this place.
The apartment is located a 10 minutes walk from the cathedral (Groenplaats). Like other guests commented, there are quite a few nice bars situated around the house, as well as restaurants, supermarkets etc.
There is a big and guarded parking nearby, under the park: 9 euro/24 hours, and you can borrow a bike for free (although you have to get it from the Groenplaats, and return it every day, so it's quite a hassle). The entrance is not on the Frankrijklei itself, but on the Van Eijcklei (I had trouble finding it).
The bed is good. The living room has big windows from wall to wall, which make the room bright indeed. The house has a good build quality. It is quiet. During my stay I didn't hear any noise from neighbours. The house is also literally cool: one day it was about 30C outside, but inside it was under 25C.
Some minor faults: there is no coffee machine, and the TV is small and has no cable TV (but there is a DVD player).
All in all a good place to stay, and well recommended. Friendly host.
