Cosy and light apartment in Antwerp
|Address||Bothastraat, 2140 Borgerhout, Belgium|
|Response time||A few hours|
The location of the apartment is perfect; it is located in a quiet residential area in Antwerpen Borgerhout, just around the corner of the busy Turnhoutsebaan where you can find all the shops you need: supermarkets, lunchrooms, restaurants, bakery’s, greengrocers, clothing shops etc. The beautiful Rivierenhof park is close by: here you can go for a walk, relax, exercise or enjoy one of the free open-air theatres they have in the summer months. You are located about 10-15 minutes away from Central Station and about 20 minutes away from the Meir; Antwerps famous shopping street.
The apartment is on the second floor (quite a steep stairway but worth when you see the apartment) and has all the facilities you need to relax after a long day in the city: a bright living room with a comfortable couch, TV and DVD player. A kitchen which includes a fridge, oven/microwave and a coffee machine. There is bathroom with a great shower: including lights, water jets and radio(!), and a bedroom on a high sleeper with a comfortable double bed.
We will make sure there are clean sheets, towels, and toilet paper.
Public transport / parking
You are within walking distance of public transport taking you straight into the city centre.
The apartment is only a 15 minute walk from the Central Station (and about 5-10 minutes by tram or bus). And public transport takes you to the famous ‘Groenplaats’ with all its nice restaurants and bars in about 20 minutes. You can park your car in the street (parking in Antwerp is cheap: only 3,50 euro per day).

Reviews of this property
First to mention the things we liked:
Friendly hosts. Nice kitchen/ dining area. Modern TV. Heating worked well. Well equipped kitchen. Good Wifi. Cosy atmosphere in the appartment.
Things we did not like:
Food from former guests in a fridge without light. Very dark bathroom. Toilet flush did not work properly, we had to fix it several times. Dirty windows.
Reason we left after one night although we had booked and paid for three nights:
The bed is by far too small for two "normal" sized adults. It's not only 1.40x2.00, but its an alcove build what means its surrounded by walls on all sides, with no chance to put out arm or leg out of it. The appartment's heating sits straight under the bed and switches on and off all night.
Thank you for the nice flat!
Very good located!
Thank you Martha und Saki!

the apartment is situated in a nice multicultural neighborhood and quite close to the central station, the tram-station only 2 minutes away. everything else is around. the equipment in the flat is good.
it was not very clean!
after the second night, the humidity in the flat made it impossible to sleep in the bed so we slept on the couch which was only "ok"...
Thanks Martha and Saki for being very nice hosts! The flat is totally perfect for a weekend and has enough space. Everything which is needed is included. To come to a point which was not so nice for us two girls in another country: The front door of the house is totally broken and could not be closed! We thought this won't be a problem until a drunken friend of the hosts rang the door bell 20 times in the evening and recognized that the house door was open and then entered the house to come upstairs and pressed the door handle down and told us several times he would like to enter. Of course it's not the fault of the nice hosts, but you should communicate to friends and other people that there is nobody at home. Also on the next morning when the boss of the hosts rang the bell 5 minutes at 6 o'clock because he needed some keys....
For girls it's not funny to see someone drunken is really in front of the flat door and he talks some minutes that he wants to enter.
But we really have to point out that the hosts were always accessible and exerted to make the stay for us good.
Apart from that, flat is good located. 20 minutes by foot to central station. parking costs EUR3.80 for a whole day (on Sunday you do not have to pay).
Everything was perfect! The apartement was very clean and modern, it was very nice to live their for a week. The pwners of the apartement were very friendly and helpful before the trip and also while the trip! If I would decide to visit antwerp again I would come back to this apartement!
We had a wonderfull time in the apartment and really enjoyed our stay there!
A great place and very nice and friendly people. We can definitely recommend the apartment!
We had a very good time and our hosts made everything so very easy. Its only a 10 minute tram ride, which itself is practically outside the door steps, from the Roosevelt/historic area. There are shops close by if you need anything and it has to have one of the best showers around! Also, the price is fair. It ticks all the boxes for us, even if the stairs were a bit steeper than we're used to. If we're in Antwerp again, would definitely like to stay there again as its much more homey than a hotel/hostel.
Who is happy in a multicultural neighborhood, comes home in a modern, light, small nest with the luxury of a beautiful kitchen, relaxing shower, and romantic sleeping niche, which I definitely recommend to call. At Saki and Martha No noise from traffic, internet, tram around the corner, many shops, and parking for 3.5 euros per day. And thanks to our lovely host and hostess who turn out to be global citizens ....
Wie graag, in een multiculturele buurt, thuiskomt in een modern,licht, klein nest met de luxe van een mooie keuken, ontspannende douche, en romantische slaapniche, die raad ik zeker aan om bij Saki en Martha aan te bellen. Geen geluidslast van verkeer,internet, de tram om de hoek,tal van winkeltjes, en parking voor 3,5 euro per dag.
En dank aan onze lieve gast-heer en-vrouw die wereldburgers blijken te zijn....
Friendly host, housing quiet, surprising, well placed in a wealthy neighborhood in which intercultural "Bobois" and where there are very good things to eat, we enjoyed our stay. Tram nearby and daily street parking to 3.5e what is reasonable.
Hôte sympathique, logement au calme,surprenant, bien placé dans un quartier riche en interculturalité qui se "boboise" et où l'on trouve de très bonnes choses à manger, nous avons bien aimé notre séjour. Tram non loin et parking journalier dans la rue à 3.5e ce qui est raisonnable.
