“WONDERFUL, fully equipped home in the heart of old town Antwerp”
Reviewed 16 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

While we could only manage 2 nights in this lovely recently completed apartment, we could not feel luckier. Catherine met us at the door as agreed upon based on the arrival time of our train from Amsterdam. She led us up 2 long flights of stairs (the only real thing to be aware of) to this spacious apartment. Then there is another internal set of steps within the apartment up to the sleeping quarters and bathroom and deck. Of course, the deck was not usable during this chilling December week but the glass doors to the deck offer the MOST spectacular view of the lighted cathedral spire - it is truly breathtaking.
Aside from the apartment itself - and this apartment is their second apartment in this building not to be confused with the original apartment on the first floor - Catherine could not have been more helpful nor attentive. The apartment is nicely supplied with all the basics for cooking - spices, olive oil, vinegar, coffee, cereal, and jams. We did not prepare any meals but were surprised and pleased to find the essentials. There is a fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, etc so that any guest could easily prepare all meals if he/she so chose to do.
Many, many thanks to Catherine and all recommendations to other are to avail yourselves of this lovely rental - we will certainly be back.

“Perfect apartment to see Antwerp”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Everything about this apartment was good. Arranging the booking with Catherine was easy, finding it and meeting Catherine was also simple. It lived up to expectations, was supper clean and very comfortable. The bed was particularly comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with nice touches like some local beer in the fridge, good breakfast cereal, coffee and tea, olive oil etc. The stairs are steep and hard work with a big suitcase but once up there the place was a delight.

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in October 2013

Dieter is terrific. Everything was easy - booking, arrival, departure. The apartment was very comfortable and met our every need. The kitchen was generously equipped with dishes, cookware, utensils, and coffee!! I stayed there 10 days with daughter and 4 year old grandson. Very spacious for the three of us.

Location is excellent - a couple of blocks from the Cathedral and Market. For us, the train station was in walking distance, but we think anything within 4 miles is walkable. Many shops, cafes, and sights are nearby, as is the river.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have spent 3 nights in the apartment on the third floor, and it was realy a great moment!
The apartment is very well located, near both historical and shopping centers, and about 15-20mn by foot from central station. It's also in a quiet street, near restaurants and bars.
The apartment is very well furnished, there's everything you need to cook, and some base product like coffee, cream, tea, vinegar, oil, etc. There's also a great terrace with a wonderful view of the cathedral!
Thanks also to make us discover Panamarenko with those beautiful prints on the walls!
We were welcomed by Catherine, she was smiling and very kind with us!
If we come back in Antwerp, we will go back to Slapen in Apen!

“Perfect location, cozy, clean, fully equipped, quiet but near everything”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Style of a New York loft but cozy at the same time. Location is ideal, close to everything, but quiet for a good night's sleep. Nearby shops, supermarket, ATMs, restaurants, parking garage. Train station within walking distance. Catherine and Dieter are excellent hosts and go out of their way to help with any needs you may have. We (2 adults and 18 year old) had such a great time, cooked a couple of dinners in the well-equipped kitchen, bedroom downstairs provides privacy and lofted area with another large, comfortable bed.

“You'd be crazy to book a hotel.”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Truly lovely city centre apartment in which you are free to do as you please. It is no more expensive than a moderate hotel, the whole of central Antwerp is on the doorstep so you neer need a taxi, and if you don't fancy venturing forth in the evening the flat is both spacious and well equipped for sitting around listening to music, radio or watching the TV, which comes with a host of channels including the major English language BBC ones. If I go to Antwerp again (and I can thoroughly recommend what is a beautiful city with great cafes, bars and restaurants and an amazing number of high quality museums and galleries) I know who I'll be contacting for a place to stay. Dieter and Catherine, who own "Slapen in Apen".

“we felt at home”
Reviewed 6 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The apartment is wonderfully maintained, spacious and very well equipped. It lies in the heart of the city, but it is calm. We were kindly welcomed and the contact with the owner was very friendly. We felt comfortable and at home and were sorry to leave.
