Boulevard Leopold Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #19 of 112 Antwerp B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 April 2013

Stayed in apartment 1 with my partner and our friend for two nights. It was exactly what we had hoped for and more: spacious, beautifully furnished rooms, and a very welcoming and helpful host (Martin). The house was an easy tram ride away from the main train station, and we either walked or took public transport to the main shopping area, museums, restaurants etc.

Breakfast was plentiful and unhurried and a lovely way to start the days we were there. The bathroom in the apartment was through the second bedroom which might bother some people but for us it wasn't a problem.

Staying at Boulervard Leopold really made our time in Antwerp very special.

Love , care , as well as great taste ,would have to be used to restore this beautiful 1890 town house.
Martin, the host ,made us feels instantly at home.
It's definitely THE place to stay when you visit Antwerp .

We loved Boulevard Leopold because of the beautifully decorated homely feel, and the personal hospitality that Martin provided. Close to transport to the city - 5 minutes away, breakfast included was lovely, and was a glamourous home to come back to after a day in gorgeous Antwerp.

We flew to Charleroi Airport then travelled by train to Antwerp, was 5 euros by booking on-line in the UK and printing off etickets !! bargain ........ took around 1hr 50 mins, the B&B is not ideally located if you want to easily walk into the town of Antwerp, which is why I have initially scored this down from a 5. After spending more than an hour trying to find the B&B on foot we finally ordered a taxi. The B&B is beautiful, the interior design is unusual and full of character. Our room was huge, warm, inviting and despite being on a busy road not as noisy as we were anticipating. There is a large 'gas' fire, which gave the room a cosy, comfortable feel, the heat could be altered with a remote control! Initially there was no tea and coffee making facilities, however Martin was extremely helpful and brought us a kettle and provisions so we could have a cup of tea in our room. The biggest disappointment was not having the room serviced, we stayed 2 nights/3 days and were surprised to find when we got back after our first night, having spent a full day in Antwerp, the bed was still 'unmade' and the towels etc were still where we had left them, hence my reason for scoring 3 out of 5 overall. It's a shame as this B&B was of a 4/5* quality, not sure if Martin just forgot to service the room or it was 'normal' that it would not be cleaned. We did not mention this to Martin, maybe in hindsight we should have done this. There was no access to communal areas, other than at breakfast time, where the breakfast room was accessed via the owners living room, however our room was large and other than maybe wanting to socialise with other guests, you do have space to sit and read, etc. in the room. We stayed in Room 3, lots of stairs to climb but that's normal in Belgium bed and breakfasts we soon learned. The host, Martin, was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was enjoyable and you were not left hungry. Martin was also really helpful advising about transport, sites, shopping, eating out. Overall the place is fantastic, hopefully the non cleaning was just a foresight on Martin's part, and if you want to be away from the centre you can catch a tram within a few minutes walk of the B&B.

Thank you for your review and stay with us.
About your remarks, I would first of all like to state that the 4/5 rating on tripadvisor is not 4/5 hotel stars, we are not a hotel, but a rating of guests how they value their stay here, so the comment that we don't live up to the 5 star rating is not an issue here.
If you don't know your way in a city I would suggest you take a taxi to start with or at least ask me for directions, it's a 10min walk from the train station and 5 min by Metro. So there was no reason for walking around the city for more than an hour.
In every room there is a Nespresso machine present, I only offered you the water boiler because you prefered to drink tea.
Not servicing the room is a choice we make because we respect the privacy of our guests, and we are always willing to change towels and service the room if anyone would request this.

My husband and I just spent 4 wonderful nights in Martin and Patricia's terrific house. The location was great...the public transportation was just a very short walk away. Martin gave us a map and marked all the routes for us so it made travel around the city very easy.

Boulevard Leopold and most importantly Martin and Patricia are absolutely fabulous, it might sound like a cliche however it really did feel like we had spent the weekend with good friends.
We were brought to Antwerp for a friends wedding and we were constantly running in and out to attend various events with the wedding party over the weekend. Martin always went out of his way to call us a taxi and was always super helpful to arrange restaurants and offer up local information.
We stayed in Apartment 02 and it was just divine. We had our bed on a mezzanine level with a gorgeous skylight where we laid in bed in the morning admiring the beautiful blue sky above us. The room also has a beautiful role-top bath which I had to say even as a shower addict it was so enjoyable to take the time to run a bath and soak our body after a lot of dancing during the wedding, it was so therapeutic and it really made it feel like an indulgent holiday.
Having read a previous review about taking your own shower gel, I brought a little travel version of my favourite shower gel and bubble bath solution to thoroughly enjoy and would recommend.
Finally I would just like to say that even though the building is stunning and the room was something I would actually rent to live in, what makes Boulevard Leopold are Martin and Patricia, they are just so fabulous and I remember before going on this trip I read a few reviews and I can not believe how anyone can find them unhelpful they are simply the perfect hosts and I thank them for the lovely stay and I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The apartment was lovely and spacious however all the rooms looked amazing also.

Spent four nights here with my girlfriend and had an amazing stay. Very cool, unique renovated house. Interesting and comfortable rooms. Location is a long walk from downtown (20 minutes), but is easy with convenient public trans if you're comfortable with it.

Martin was very helpful with recommendations and got us reservations at some amazing restaurants. Recommended.
