We had a most wonderful city break at this beautifully decorated -contemporary modern- flat which is perfectly located for all the best of Antwerp's cultural offerings.
To be recommended. Second time I stayed in this hotel. Well located, in walking distance from the Grand Marketplace. Parking nearby and quiet. I like the decoration, room is big, space enough with sofa. Very clean.
A perfect little getaway in a perfect location. Karin has an immaculate eye for detail and limitless passion for maintaining the place so expect everything to be taken care of.
We were 2 nights in a suite facing the square and I couldn't be more happy, tasteful setting, comfortable bed and bathroom, a great combination of comfort and cosiness.
It also helps Karin herself is a great host and lovely human being. Will definitely be back.
I have travelled a lot over the years, and stayed at many hotels, but this has instantly become one of my favourite places. We stayed in the Square View Suite which was spacious and very comfortable, and a great combination of style and cosiness, with some wonderful bay windows with a view over the square.. Too often designer hotels feel cold and soulless, but not here, you can tell a lot of thought went behind the design, it feels very personal and welcoming.
There is such a great attention to details too, and lots of little touches that make it feels very homely (well I wish my house was as stylish!)
And your host Karin is great, she'll come and meet you, and gives you some tips, she even made a reservation for us for a restaurant she recommended when we arrived.
As for the location, it couldn't be any more perfect, tucked away in a charming little square, two minutes walk away from the touristic sights, but also very near a trendy area with plenty of vintage furnishing shops, and some great restaurants and wine bars.
I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
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!
