We stayed here in October 2014 with my girlfriend, and we absolutely loved this place: the charming decoration, the friendliness of the owners, the location, everything. It's an ideal place to stay in Antwerp. We loved our room, the bathroom was specially beautiful. Great breakfasts!

My daughter and I stayed in the Livingstone Suite of this lovely & unique B & B. The decor is antique African with an unusual and unique butterfly collection that intrigued us. Gino and Erik were incredible hosts; they carried our suitcases up the narrow stairs, called a taxi, gave us an overview of Antwerp with a map and recommendations,... More

Ooooops, I posted my review for a B&B of the same name but at a different address in Antwerp. This is the one in which I actually stayed! I really enjoyed my stay here. Erik and Gino are great and it was really nice getting to know them. Their home is beautifully furnished and it's obvious they take great pride... More

Not only the B&B is unique but also the host Gino. Before im going to start I want to make a compliment about our host who made us feel like home from the first moment when he moved his car so we could park in front of his place. The house/ rooms are one of a kind with the African... More

The location is perfect. Close to many good places for good food, and nice sightseeing. Walking distance from the very cool and chic antiquaries street, and the centre of the town. The beds and pillows are high quality, and the design and personality of the house is really beautiful. Breakfast, couldn't be better!!! Please go, you are not going to... More

If you read all the below reviews you will see that we all feel the same about our experience/stay. Utterly recommendable! What a genuine couple. Passionate about hosting and making sure their guests are fully satisfied. Check out the positive write ups in trendy magazines. Thank you for making our stay so nice.

Feeling at home in African style in Antwerp. Perfect match between personal attention and comfort. Love to come back. Both for business and for leisure. The hosts make you feel at home and prepare an excellent breakfast in a special, exotic environment. The collection of butterflies is unique.

The room + the location + the hosts = perfection. Everything people have written in their reviews is true. Ivan & Gino are special people who have created an unusual, welcoming space in Antwerp. Their attention to detail is unique. And breakfast was a treat!

We recently stayed in the apartment on Scheldestraat in the heart of the Zuid district. The flat was amazingly bright with great views and surrounded by great cafes and restaurants. The African/colonial design theme was fantastic and the apartment was extremely comfortable with everything you could hope for. Ivan was a great host and gave us very useful instructions on... More
