***** Laura Prachtig kunstzinnig appartement op een toplocatie!Just imagine yourself having breakfast with the morning paper on this table. ***** Amy To echo all previous comments, this is an outstanding Airbnb in every way. The space is glorious, high-ceilinged and filled with light from the many large windows. The look is stylish, with comfortable and attractive furniture attractively arranged, pleasant lighting, and many interesting decorative items. The building is owned by an artist whose paintings line the hallway leading to the apartment, which makes for interesting comings and goings. Even better than the apartment is the host, Ernst. He offered to meet us at the train station when we arrived, brought in an extra cleaner so we could check in early after an overnight flight, and then took us on a two hour tour to give us a sense of Antwerp. No need for a guidebook because Ernst has put together a comprehensive list of cafe and restaurant recommendations with his own (very reliable) comments on each. When it was time for us to leave, Ernst drove our suitcases to the train station so we could walk there unencumbered. We highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Antwerp. We may even need to schedule another trip just so we can stay there.

Perfect location, walk to everything, beautiful building and unique space. Ernst-Martin is the top host. Gentleman,lots of sharing, intelligence and elegant. He even taught us some nice places to go to, like the rare book library opens for just certain event. And the booklet on table contains lots of his recommendation on bar and restaurants, very helpful local preference than those online review. Bed is comfortable and very well equipped kitchen. Few supermarket nearby. Very recommended to all travelers. You will love Antwerp bcos of this beautiful live-in experience.

Had a fantastic stay in Antwerp (again) and Ernst's place (again). The flat is stunning and I would be surprised if anyone could find a better place to stay in Antwerp - it ticks all the boxes. Ernst is a very accommodating host and a pleasure to deal with. When we're in Antwerp again, we know where to look!

LOVED This place. It was just like the photos. Large, spacious, and creative. Its location is perfect as well. We didn't have to take any form of transportation to get around and managed to walk everywhere that we wanted to see. When we arrived, Ernst made sure we knew where to park and met us at the door. He told us some useful tips and places to go, and made sure we knew we could call him any time. Everywhere he told us to go was a winner. I'm so glad we had him to assist us in our trip. If you want to go to Antwerp, stay here. You will be in the best hands, in the best location. Thank you Ernst!!
