Great location. The family room had four single beds in one big spacious room. Comfortable with kids. The kitchen had all the equipments. The exhaust is not great for foods that let out lot of steam. The place is towards end of street with off street available parking. We booked parking within the basement; however parking management is quite poor.... More

We booked this the day before on line, because it looked like really good value. I was a bit dubious, because I have stayed in these kind of apartment complexes before, and they are often rather dingy and unloved. And this wasn't 100% wonderful - some of the lightbulbs were out, and the decor was a bit bleak, but it... More

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
