Aplace is a wonderful place to stay in Antwerp! The front room is really like a studio apartment with a sitting area and a very comfortable king-sized bed. The bathroom is very modern with lovely fluffy towels. Super clean throughout. There is a little area on the landing just outside the room with a coffee maker, tea, and all the fixings for same. The square is very quiet, but just a few short blocks from the Vrijdagmarkt Market. There is a lovely wine/beer bar across the square, Pinot, where we spent a couple evenings drinking with the locals and wonderful owners. Take a taxi to/from the train station. It's a bit of a walk. As noted in other reviews, there are winding stairs up to the room, but that is just Belgium! Karin, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. I would recommend Aplace to anyone looking for a good place to stay in Antwerp!
We stayed at this apartment when we visited Antwerp and it was a great place to explore the city from. The square where the apartment is situated has many nice bars and cafes and the accommodation was really outstanding. The room was very stylish and the owner Karin is very friendly and provided everything we needed. Coffee and tea were replenished daily and the kitchen area had a very good coffee machine. The en Suite was well equipped with a walk in shower. We would recommend.
My second stay, this time experiencing the 1st and 3rd floor flats. Each has its own character, both are stylish, comfortable and with lots of little touches that delight. Love the retro/vintage styling, the huge, comfortable beds, the gleaming kitchen area, the stylish bathrooms with lashings of hot water and great showers. The location is perfect. Karin is excellent at all stages, from contact on booking through to welcome to the flat. The only negative is having to leave at the end of the stay. We are already planning our next visit.
I stayed for one night in February. My flight arrived at 8am from the US, and the owner, Karen was kind enough to let me check in early and get some sleep. The location is perfect and the property itself is flawless. Karin thinks of everything and the rooms are well appointed. I was able to meet with her for a glass of wine, and she is a truly wonderful host. I would recommend to anybody that when in Antwerp, stay here. Great location, beautiful property, perfect price. Thanks again, Karin!! -Tom
There is no better place to stay in Antwerp. Location is perfect, flat is wonderful, owner Karin is brilliant. We loved everything about our stay. Relaxing in the flat, eating out in local restaurants - Velasquez is particularly recommended, as is Barbel, lovely little bar next door. We walked everywhere. Enjoyed MAS and other museums. Walked under the river through the Saint Anna tunnel. Bought bread and lunch in Pain Quotidien and had overall a very memorable stay in Antwerp. It was very cold though in February, even for us hard northerners (from the UK)!
The location put us within a 20 minute walk of everything that we wanted to see, and was a perfect base from which to start each day. Karin was very friendly and responsive throughout. The room was elegant, quiet, private. I hope to return!
Karin is super nice and helpful. The apartment is very well decorated and clean. The beds are comfortable and the amenities are top notch. We enjoyed that the apartment is walking distance from all major tourist attractions. We will come again!
