Reviews of this property
I loved my stay in Els' sunny rooftop apartment. The apartment is bright, airy, spacious, and has a lovely terrace for breakfast, lunch, or maybe even an evening meal! There are sweeping views East and West over Antwerp. The apartment is also quiet which I truly enjoyed. The apartment is a convenient short walk to Central Station, but the tram nearby will take you all the way to the famous Cathedral. To be honest the old City and riverside is within walking distance if you are a reasonable walker, but if you need public transport is there. There is lots to do in Antwerp and even after a week I had far from exhausted the possibilities so I need to go back! Outside of the must-sees like Rubens' House and the Cathedral, the highlight for me was the Middelheim Sculpture Park which is lovely to walk in as well as to admire the amazing sculptures. You take the 21 bus from the side of Centraal Station and get off at "Lindenreet"... the next stop is a large hospital building so if you arrive there on the bus you have gone too far! Another highlight of Antwerp was Els herself. I have had many hosts but she was the most hospitable, communicative, welcoming, warm, helpful, informative... she will have lots of Antwerp tips for you. Go, enjoy!
Els was a good host that helped us out with directions and taxis. The apartment was perfect for our needs. I went to Belgium for major surgery and didn't want to spend my week recovering in a hotel room. Els apartment was the perfect solution. The outdoor area was ideal for us as I was unable to get around it meant that I could at least sit outside in the fine weather. The only suggestion I would put forward is to get rid of one of the tables and replace with a couple of sun beds. I will certainly be recommending it to friends.
Great location/property. Property was as described in the WImdu website. Els was great and very responsive to our needs. Only down side was the elevator is next to apartment. The noise can make it difficult at times to sleep.
Very good location close to downtown. You can reach the train station and the center on foot. All attractions also possible without vehicle. Parking was also no problems with day ticket.
Sehr gute Lage in Nähe der Innenstadt. Man kann den Bahnhof und das Zentrum gut zu Fuß erreichen. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten also ohne Fahrzeug möglich. Parken ging auch ohne Probleme mit Tagesticket.
Our host Gijs Kudos: flexible and responsive.
Con: Wimdu not disappoint me know which host Els was replaced by host Gijs. So there was no contact with the host to late Friday afternoon I phoned the office and got a new phone number.
Penthouse location and decor is OK, but the nightly noise pollution caused by the elevator is unacceptable to us.
Onze host Gijs verdient een pluim: flexibel en snel reagerend.
Minpunt: Wimdu stelde mij niet op de hoogte dat host Els was vervangen door door host Gijs. Daardoor was er geen contact mogelijk met de host tot ik vrijdagmiddag laat naar het kantoor belde en een nieuw telefoonnummer kreeg.
Penthouse ligging en inrichting is OK, maar de nachtelijke geluids overlast veroorzaakt door de lift is voor ons onacceptabel.
We were very warmly welcomed and found everything they need before, such as coffee, tea, bed linen and Handtücher.Wir, our 2 kids felt up quickly at home in the apartment via Antwerp. The view is great! The surrounding area is very multicultural, with its advantages and disadvantages. It is close to the train station which was convenient for us and also the center is near, and on foot, by bicycle and easily accessible by tram.
At the loud noise of the lift but we got used to quickly.
wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und fanden alles Nötige vor wie Kaffee, Tee, Bettwäsche und Handtücher.Wir, auch unsere 2 Kinder, fühlten uns schnell zu Hause in der Wohnung hoch über Antwerpen. Die Aussicht ist toll! Die Umgebung ist sehr multikulturell, mit seinen Vor-und Nachteilen. Man ist nahe am Bahnhof, das war für uns praktisch und auch das Zentrum ist nahe, und zu fuss, Per Velo und per Tram gut erreichbar.
An das doch laute Geräusch des Liftes haben wir uns schnell gewöhnt.
A centrally situated apartment just minutes off the Autobahn. Our friendly hostess was waiting for us and gave us many helpful suggestions for our stay. Very comfortably and tastefully furnished, everything you need is there. The view is wonderful and teams to the city center leave just around the corner. Good restaurant, Reuzenhif, recommended by our hostess, nearby.We did hear the lift at night but it didn't stop us from sleeping. One flight of stairs after the lift, to reach the apartment. We recommend it heartily!
