“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2007

My wife and I arrived there and were taken care of immediately by the owner. The location has 3 rooms on separate floors. Our room was outstanding (first floor) and it was more than spacious. Very large full bathroom. Lighting in the room isn't the best but for setting the mood, it was perfect. The stairways to the upper floors are narrow. The 3rd floor room is air conditioned but the other rooms aren't. Our breakfasts were different each morning and were very tasty. It was a healthy selection of cheeses, rolls of many types, egg, other proteins and yogurt. You arrange with the owner when you'd like to have breakfast The owner recommended some places to eat and we were not disappointed. The B&B is located less than a block or so from the National Museum (which currently has a number of the Rijksmuseum's best works while they are completing renovations there. ) Taking the #4 trolley takes you within five minutes to the Cathedral area and the restaurant center. A number of very good restaurants there. Our fine dinner at the Rooden Hoed restaurant is worthy of mention. We enjoyed Antwerp more than we expected, in no small part because of the Charles Rogier XI.

  • Liked — The overall warmth of the facility -- you felt at home.
  • Disliked — The lighting fixtures and witdth of the stairways.

We did not want to stay at a large hotel in Antwerp and saw this on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. It was wonderful, there are only three rooms but they are furnished beautifully and breakfast was wonderful. It is about a 10 min walk from the centre of Antwerp but there are wonderful restaurants in the area and you are right next to the main art gallery. Katrin is a wonderful host.

My wife and I went to Antwerp for a weekend, as a supposedly up and coming city, it was a last minute thing, so couldn't get into any of the hotels. One hotel recommended CRXI, and we looked at the website. It is an opulenently decorated guest house with only three different themed rooms. I have never stayed in a B&B in the past, but the website made it well worth trying out.

Katrin (Owner) was helpful, informative, and made us feel welcome immediatley, the house is amazing and located in the heart of the fashionable southern district. (Cool bars, restaurants, fashion houses, cafe's and wierd and wonderful shops).

We stayed in the Charles suite on the second floor, it is done out in a funky scottish antique theme with stuffed Fox on the mantelpiece!! (we called him Steve) It was very clean, a comfortable queensize bed, TV, with a range of DVD's if you want a night in. The thing that made it extra special for my wife in particular was the separate private bathroom which is just as big as bedroom, with a free standing bath, rain shower, and decked out in a pink boudour theme. It was tough getting her out to go for dinner.

The breakfast is also fantastic, a monster platter of organic produce, pate's, fresh fruit, selection of breads, smoked salmon (on sunday) plus more.

We highly recommend Antwerp, a great city, with a great culture, stay away from the tourist areas, there are millions of hidden gems. We will definitley be back, to try out one of the other rooms at CR XI.
