“A nice B&B but not special !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

The excellent reviews were the reason to stay in this B&B. The host is indeed very friendly, the free Cava offered is a nice gesture and breakfast is like most B&B in Antwerp good. I had the room on the Top floor and water pressure in the rain-shower was too little. What I did not like at all, despite traveling alone is the open toilet close to your bed. € 120 for this time of the year is also not cheap as a bigger room in t"Sandt is offered at € 130 including an excellent breakfast.

Would thoroughly recommend staying here, we loved the room, cool furniture and a huge round bath! What makes this more than your average B&B is the friendly and warm welcome, we felt very spoilt, fizz on arrival and a gorgeous breakfast served in our room before our early morning drive to Berlin. Perfect-thanks guys we hope to return! Great bar and restaurant recommendations too.

We stayed at Yellow Submarine for a couple of days in July 13, our host Elke and her assistant of whom I'm really sorry I can't recall her name, were outstanding, nothing is too much. A great place to explore and close to some of Antwerps finest beer bars.

There is a full review on my beer blog Beersay at the link below, cheers

The B and B is rally well located just 10 minutes walk from the Old Town and just 2 minutes walk from MAS and the waterfront.

The rooms are clean,modern and really comfortable with lots of nice additional touches thrown in. Bowls of lovely sweet, a bottle of Cava on arrival. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of interesting bits and pieces to try. Perfect for a weekend trip away.

However, where this B and B really comes into its own is the wonderful hospitality of Elke and her husband. They are incredibly welcoming and helpful. Elke was full of idea of things we could do and tried to make reservations and things for us. It made the weekend incredibly relaxing and we wouldn't hesitate to go back - it felt like a home away from home. Thank you.

I stumbled on this b and b after trawling through loads of b and bs and hotels on the internet. The b and b is located in a square about ten minutes walk from the old town, which is very convenient. The area is quite mixed with the red light district about 2 minutes away, but this is easily avoided! The proprietor Elke could not have been more welcoming and helpful. A complimentary bottle of Cava and bowls of sweets were provided in our room and our breakfast the next day was wonderful: boiled eggs, patisserie, cheese and ham and freshly squeezed orange juice. There was even a nespresso coffee machine in our room too.

Just a word about the bathroom, the bath is round but also has a very powerful overhead shower. The bathroom was not enclosed at all, although in an alcove so the loo is to all intents and purposes in the bedroom. There are loos downstairs as well, but it was rather disconcerting to be frank!

Room Tip: There are ony 3 rooms, 2 with baths and showers and one with just a shower.

Elke, the owner of the Bed and Breakfast, is very friendly and helpful!

A surprise was waiting us there, we had make a reservation for the room with the shower, but she gave us the one with the bath! Great room and surprise! Very clean the room, with a really big bathtub! There is a Nepresso coffee machine. Amazing great the RITUALS, are the bathroom amenities.

Elke asked us what time we want to have breakfast and when we went to the creative coffee the breakfast was waiting us with a newspaper from the country that we live! Really nice detail! Elke gave us many informations for Antwerpen!

If you want a place to sleep in Antwerpen this is the best place to sleep!

Stayed here for 3 nights in August 12. A wonderful find! Location perfect for the tourist: easy walk to center, sights and restaurants. Room, elegant modern design. Immaculate housekeeping,
huge tub/shower unit. Elke lovely, very personable, interesting, and could not do enough for us.
She met my wife's food restrictions completely and graciously. Her advice was an Excellent source of info, especially regarding restaurants. She provided a Lovely bottle of bubbles on arrival and little thoughtful extras you find in expensive hotels (ie: chocolates in room each day were different). There are several good sized grocery stores within one or two blocks. The
Area is very safe and quiet. Security Garage for car close by and no extra charge. If we visit Antwerp again, this would be our first choice.

Room Tip: This BnB met all our needs and criteria.....
