A room in clean and cozy design apartment with an amazing view, close to all kinds of public transportation, in a neighbourhood that's buzzing with local charm and culinary passion.
Welcome to A!
I've been living in this appartment on the eleventh floor for 2 years now, and fell in love with the city. Up here you can watch Antwerp in its entireness, which is quite spectacular. The city never sleeps, as the cliché goes, but it's true. From great shopping experiences, to a spectacular history. A night life to remember. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. A culinary treat for everyone's taste.
The apartment is located near Berchem station, which is a two minute walk away. There are two buses, two trams and a train taking you to the city center in about 5-10 minutes (which run continuously almost every 10 minutes up until midnight). There is also a "Velo" (Antwerp city bike) stop just around the corner. I usually enjoy the night life too, so if you go out I'd be happy to drive you home afterwards too. If not: nighttime taxi rides to my place are between 15 and 20 euros leaving city center.
Your room is a themed mixture between "1001 nights" and popart, because why choose?! I have WiFi available. You are obviously free to enjoy the communal living room, kitchen and bath room.
I'm a copywriter for an advertising agency, who loves to travel and meet local residents himself. So I would love to meet you personally too. I have a lovely cat called Marley, who is the sweetest on the planet. But probably not the best idea if you're allergic
The fee includes the staying overnight, with fresh sheets and WiFi. You're also free to have coffee, tea and cereal in the morning.
During work days I can only check you in after 19h00 when I return from work. During weekends we can arrange a more flexible checkin that suits you. Either way you'll receive your own key when checking in.
See you soon!
Guests have access to free Wifi, a cereal breakfast with coffee and tea, communal living room and bathroom + extra toilet.
Berchem is a super relaxed neighbourhood, known for it's nice bars and restaurants. It's also known for the most beautiful street in the city: Cogels-Osylei, an architectural must-see!
Trams are at the end of the street. The second biggest station is at a 5min walk and provides direct connections to Belgium's big cities. Antwerp also provides bicycles at very low cost.
For security measures I hope you don't mind me taking a photocopy of your passport
Please only smoke outside on the terrace :-)
My appartment is a place of openmindedness. I am strongly against any act of racism, sexism or homophobia. Everybody is welcome in my appartment, regardless of gender, race or sexuality. I hope for the same openness from my guests.
I'm a big fan of open communication: if there's something bothering you or if you have a supplementary question regarding anything, I'd be more than happy to help.
Bert was the perfect host for our weekend in Antwerp. The apartment was great and wonderful. Without any hesitation we would contact bert again for a weekend in Antwerp.
Thanks Bert, all the best.

Great host, lovely clean flat with outstanding view. Bed was super comfy and we had the place to ourselves most of the time. Bert was extremely accommodating even making fresh bread. Great area too! Would definitely recommend.
Bert was a great host,really friendly and helpful. The room and apartment were fantastic and the view was amazing.
Staying with Bert is like staying with an old friend - easy going, easy sharing and no pressure. With Marley as well it's very relaxed & homely. Views are amazing, room very comfortable. Easy to get to town, pool just round the corner, tram stop very local & Berchem station very close. My time in Antwerp went so quickly. I would recommend Bert 100% :-)
Bert is de perfecte gastheer! We hebben heerlijk geslapen, er stond zelfs een ontbijtje klaar en zijn huis is heel netjes en gezellig. We hebben Bert niet lang gezien, maar in de korte tijd dat we hem spraken heeft hij ons echt welkom laten voelen en goede tips gegeven over Antwerpen. Super!
