I've staying with be-housing before but this is the first time I had the One bedroom Apartment. It was good to see the TV has been upgraded and the Wifi works. The Apartment was very clean and the staff were helpful (we arrived outside the normal Check-in times). It's a good location and excellent value for money. We would stay... More

This premises is located just 7-10 mins walk from Central Station, it located on a quiet street, so there are very minimum amount of traffic and no nearby night-life establishments within earshot. I had stayed at City Apartments sister building opposite before - the Budget Flats so I was familiar with the facilities and accessibility of the premises. The check-in... More

I booked this apartment for my family (me, my wife and 2 daughters) for 2 weeks after looking at the photos on the Internet. It turned out that photos on the Internet are deceiving (at least for the apartment we stayed). The actual place was old, filthy and smelly. The neighborhood was not the best - it is an area...

First off, the studio is rather large and pretty centrally located. It comes with a small kitchenette with a hob and microwave. There's a bathtub. There's also a small TV, couches and a double bed (which was really two single beds pushed together). The person in charge is quite rude. Check in is only allowed at certain hours 9am-12pm and...

We read a series of decent reviews on this place and were in a bit of a bind so booked a one night stay at City Apartments. The area wasn't exactly upmarket but we felt safe enough. However, we arrived 30 minutes before the 4pm check in time to find that the office was only open between the hours of... More

I had some concerns about staying at Budget Accommodation but upon arrival in a very Snowy Antwerp I was met by a member of Staff who advised me that the room was suffering from a faulty heater but she instantly provided another! The Room itself was a good size, clean and perfectly functional - the furniture & TV were a... More

We booked a stay for one week in the City Apartments in Antwerp as we were travelling over to the Tomorrowland festival in Boom, an hour from the city. Myself and my girlfriend were only really looking for somewhere to crash at the end of the day, so didn't pay much heed to some of the reviews complaining about cleanliness... More

After booking one of the apartments online last minute I was alarmed by the amount of negative reviews I have read from other review websites about these apartments. Myself and my partner stayed in a studio apartment for 3nights. When we first arrived at 4pm our room was not cleaned, the beds had not been changed, towels still remained on... More

Dear, We're sorry to hear that your stay at City Apartments didn't started as it should. However, due to the correct reaction of our location-manager, your stay went well. We rebuilded our internet network several weeks ago and since then everything works well. Thanks and hope to see you bakc soon. More

At City Apartments Antwerpen you can rent an appartment at a very low price. The neighbourhood is shoddy but not dangerous. For the basic rate you get an appartment consisting of a living room annex bedroom, a bathroom and a separate kitchen with microwave, fridge, water cooker, cuttlery, table- and kitchenware. Our room smelt a bit mouldy. The shower head... More
