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!

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

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.
