Reviewed 23 July 2013

I love coming back to this hotel, time and time again. It feels so intimate, there are only 3 apartments in the buildings, so it is therefore quiet as well. All the apartments are spacious and definitely make me feel like home. The location is also great, right across from a large free parking on the quay, and within walking distance from the shopping areas, touristic objectives and restaurants. The apartment I chose had these big doors that could be closed and separate the bedroom from the rest of the apartment. I loved how quiet that made the bedroom, even in mid day, with all the traffic outside. The breakfast was also nice and delivered each morning in a weaved basket. There is no way I'd ever again consider staying at a chain hotel in Antwerp, where the atmosphere is impersonal and more often than not too business-like.

The hotel is very nice, we have stayed in the Loft Suite it is excellent, very different experience as before I arrived and I received a message with 2 pin numbers for the building door and for the room door (I kind liked the idea), the view was really nice and the location is good.

The women who works at the reception/house keeping (for 2 hours a day) is rude and annoying. Seriously it was very disappointing to meet such person in such nice place and there is no elevator in case you have a heavy bag like mine you will face a problem if you are staying in the 3rd or 4th floor.

Definitely one of my favorites, I really don't have anything bad to say about this place!! I just loved it! I felt in love with the decoration, and the privacy that you get there is just perfect! The location is very good, just a few steps from the center! and you can enjoy a lot of little boutiques in your way!

Very nice rooms, great beds, very nice people, allmost everything in town is in walking distance, the harbor, the city centre, lots of eating places to choose from.
The hotel is small, but beats every chain brand ..... :)

I've got no idea how we ended up here - it's languishing down at 50 out of 100 on the TripAdvisor list, probably because it's a new place.

Just goes to show sometimes you need to go beyond the Top10 and really read the review content.

This was a total gem, we were very happy to have found it.

When you arrive the reception is clearly one part (hotel) reception and one part architect. They were friendly enough, lugging my heavy bag up 5 sets of stairs to our penthouse room.

The room was MASSIVE and it's safe to say we weren't paying the sort of penthouse rate you'd pay in a big hotel - in this boutique hotel it was only a little more than the other rooms.

The room had a balcony overlooking the river where we enjoyed sitting in the sun in the afternoon with a glass of prosecco (we had to buy the bottle ourself, but glasses were provided).

Great location, an easy walk to everything Antwerp has to offer - right by all the antique shops and close to the trendy, locals parts of town as well as the tourist centre.

Great city, great accommodation. The only negative is that they don't do breakfast - you can choose to walk to a "partner" restaurant for it if you want to, but for us we're quite happy going out for a morning coffee anyway so it suited to a tee.

Highly recommended.

I loved this very small hotel with only 4 rooms. Walking distance to the centre of this beautiful city. The owner and her partner were friendly and most helpful and I found the hotel very quiet. A delicious breakfast was supplied at another modern cafe close by for a very reasonable EU10. Ask the staff and Kaai 11 to supply you with a voucher which then can be added to your bill.

Room Tip: I had the ground floor room but would have preferred a room on the other floors. Found my room to b...
