Aplace Antwerp: splendid third floor city flat with a gorgeous view - located in the fashion district area

Aplace is located in the middle of the old town of Antwerp. On the corner of ‘de Groenplaats’ and the Big Market, the designer shops and the ‘Kloosterstraat’, known for its antique en curiosa.

Definitely good value! Really nice, comfortable apartments that are well-situated in the old town. Very close to everything, though not directly part of the touristy plazas north of its location. On a wonderful quiet square. Close to upscale shopping and dining. The host, Karin, is very responsive by phone and email. She has good recommendations about off the beaten path activities as well. One negative: for the elderly or disabled, this property is not for you--it is a steep walkup to the 2nd and 3rd floors. Please bear this in mind when considering a booking. Believe the reviews! This is a great find in an very underrated city.

Perfect stay at a unique boutique hotel in the heart of Antwerp! Was mentioned in a New York Times article. Website and Facebook pages give you a good sense for the property and rooms. The owner, is hands on and wonderful. The location is great. Would stay here again and again. No complaints, we loved it!

Karin, My husband David and I have stayed at aplace twice, 2012 and 2013. Both times were fantastic, we have enjoyed 2 different apartments that felt like home. Aplace is the place to stay if in antwerp. We love everything about the apartments: from their perfect location-3 mins to the main square to the elegant decorations to the huge amount of space and the lovely ambience. We consider aplace our home away from home while in antwerp. Already looking forward to our next visit Karin, thank you for being so wonderful and caring! David & Amelia Santa Monica, Ca.

We were in a suite at the second floor. Nicely furnished and silent room, with a mix of modern and vintage design. The house is close to almost everything in Antwerp (the fantastic Momu is at just 3 minutes footsteps!). And the owner Karin is very kind and helpful. Very good value for what you get, I'll certainly come back and I warmly suggest this place to all flemish-taste lovers!

This is the 3rd year that I stayed at one of Karin's apartments, and every year the experience has been better than the previous one. This summer I spent four weeks in the apartment on the 3rd floor. It was very comfortable and taken care of meticulously by the hostess, who truly puts her heart and soul into making her guests feel at home, and tending to their every need. The apartment has been newly remodeled . It has been equipped with all of the modern amenities one can possibly need, including an espresso coffee maker, microwave oven, ceramic stove, fridge, iron, a safe, WiFi, modern and sparkling clean bathrooms. It is located in the middle of the old town of Antwerp, within a few hundred yards from the main squares and historical buildings. It looks out over the old "Friday Market", -a flea market held every Friday for the last 400 or so years-, which attracts true Antwerp characters and antique dealers alike. This small market square breathes a folksy atmosphere; it bustles with activity on Friday mornings, and in true Flemish, burgundy, tradition, it features no less than 5 pubs. Nevertheless, the apartment is sound proof: no noise reaches the bedrooms or living room at all. Not everyone will be thrilled about the 1960's retro interior decoration, or about the price. But what one gets in return is exquisite customer service and unsurpassed hospitality from the owner, Karin, modern comfort, and, last but not least, the convenience of the immediate proximity,- literally within walking distance-, of Antwerp's most iconic cultural , fashion and culinary assets. I can strongly recommend Aplace to anyone who wants to visit Antwerp either for a few days or for a longer stay, and is looking for the experience of being away from home, yet feel totally at home.

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the 2 appartments . Karin was very kind and thoughtful. Not only was the appartment beautifully clean it was well thought out and had a highly individual design. The appartment looks out out onto a very characterful square with little bars and cafes and it is just a short walk to the Cathedral , Old heart of the city and fantastic shops on The Meir. We had a really enjoyable break !

This is an amazing property. When I got to Antwerp, I called Karin and she was already in the area ready to pass the keys and show me the room. I had suite 2/1 and it was big! I am glad I didn't book a conventional hotel because this room was spacious and well furnished. The bathroom was no less impressive. There were also DVDs available on the ground floor for the guests. This is especially helpful if you don't understand TV programs in French or Dutch. Aplace is also located at the heart of Antwerp. It is a short walk to the tram stops and shopping area. If you like antiques, Kloosterstraat is 2 minutes away. Meir is probably a 5 minutes walk. Check out was no fuss at all. All I had to do was to leave the key in the room. I would definitely come back to Aplace again. Thank you for your hospitality, Karin!

Travelled to Antwerp on business and Karin's apartment was the perfect place to stay. The apartment is beautifully decorated and everything you could need is provided. Karin is an amazing host and was very helpful in providing suitable recommendations and of assistance with any queries throughout my stay. This is a great place to stay for visiting Antwerp and for those that like to feel at home away from home. Would highly recommend!

Great central location, beautiful stylish apartment, friendly host! There are plenty of great breakfast/lunch places just few minutes walk from the studio! Shared kitchen had all you need - espresso coffee machine, teas and water. Owner Karin gave us plenty tips on great bars and restaurants. Could not wish for more for a weekend in Antwerp!

Karin's apartments are perfectly furnished, with beautiful detail. They're spotless, in a great location (central and quiet with a few coffee shops in the square) and light and airy! Karin is a perfect host and very helpful with any queries. Can definitely recommend anyone to stay here! There's even great coffee pods provided! Antwerp has plenty to entertain the visitor for a couple of days, with Ghent and Bruge a train ride away. Train station is a 20min walk.

We arrived in the afternoon on a day with market activities and - to our terror - a music scene at one end of the square. Karin (our hostess) promised that the music was part of a once-a-year festival and that it would end well before 23:00 and she was right. And then this place is sooooo quiet. Perfect! We stayed in the first floor apartment (you know - ground floor, first floor, second floor etc...) and it was very nice. No complaints about anything. The kitchen facilities offers more than you need in most cases. If you don't want to make your breakfast yourself, you can try the (somewhat expensive) bakery "Het Dagelijks Brood" in the nearby street Steenhouwersvest (number 48).

We spent 5 nights at 2 bedroom apartment- Aplace located in Vridagmarkt in Antwerp, Belgium. The location is ideal- on a quiet square but only 2-3 blocks from main tourist area. Christmas is a lovely time of year to visit Antwerp which is all lit up for the holidays. The apartment, 1 bathroom, separate WC, 2 bedrooms each with double bed, living room and kitchen has been recently renovated and is very tastefully done. Bathroom and kitchen are very nice. Our host, Karin had prepared everything for our stay -including a Christmas tree which was a nice touch. The apartment has everything you need to prepare simple meals and to relax . Shopping is just a couple of blocks away. Antwerp is also full of lots of restaurants nearby including a couple of casual places right in the square. That said, it is a quiet square at night and we had very peaceful sleeps. The view from the apartment of the square - including the illuminated printing museum on Vridagmarkt is lovely. On Friday morning, as its name suggests, there is a market in the square- actually an auction- which we had fun watching from our window. We enjoyed a couple of days exploring Antwerp itself- a very liveable, walkable city- with nice shopping and eating- as well as using the apartment as a base from which we took day trips by train to explore Ghent and Brugge each a short train ride away. Train travel in Belgium is easy and travel within Antwerp was also simple- it was only a short tram ride or a 20 minute walk to the central station from the apartment. All in all we felt we had a very comfortable stay in Aplace- it felt like an elegant home away from home and a great base from which to explore Flanders .

Classy apartment in the very center of antwerp offers you the opportunity to easily explore this beautiful city and to relax after a dynamic day. It is situated in the old part of the city, so a lot of sights are on a walking distance. If you are lucky enough to be there on a Friday, you will experience the unique atmosphere of Vrijdagmarkt. The apartment is lovely decorated and fully equipped - you will feel like home!

I loved A Place, which is located on the coolest square in Antwerp. Karen is an impeccable and warm hostess who is always available for advice and suggestions. The apartment is very comfortable, beautifully decorated in vintage style and with many wonderful extras such as belgian chocolates, cookies and coffee. I will be going back as soon as I can !!!

Stayed in Karins most recent apartment with 2 friends. It is on the Vrijdagmarkt (Friday Market), very centrally located in Antwerp on a lovely square. The apartment itself is beautiful, lovely retro-style decoration. Very comfy bed, nice bathroom with rainshower, sleeper couch in sitting room. We loved the details! Bottles of water on the bedside, "Rituals" brand toiletries, espressomachine and all appliances you can think of in the kithchen. Dishes and other kitchenware in style. Lots of info on the city and its special restaurants, shops etc. All in all a very comfortable home away from home. Karin recommended a few restaurants that we tried: the Bourla, great Paris-style brasserie, and Enfant Terrible, on a lovely square also. We had breakfast at the Zuiderterras, on the river, great for a weekend brunch! Karin was very welcoming and we could feel she was proud of her place. Highly recommended!

My friends and I stayed for a few days in this gem of a b&b in Antwerp. Of the many apartment-turned-b&b's in the city, we chose this one for its prime location a stone's throw from the Cathedral, a perfect base for the classic tourist sightseeing. There is a bedroom with a good sized bed, a comfortable pull-out couch, a huge bathroom with a shower and a great big bathtub, a fully equipped kitchen ... and best of all, an amazing retro record collection (everything from Sylvie Vartan to vintage Michael Jackson and the Police) and record player and retro furniture and retro decor throughout. We had the pleasure of meeting Karin (and her sweet dog!) at the restaurant on the corner downstairs -- as charming as the apartment! We adored Antwerp and can't wait for our next visit back -- and will definitely be staying at Aplace again! (One thing to note -- the apartment is several floors up, and the stairs are winding and narrow, and there is no lift.)

My husband, friend and I all shared this gorgeous apartment for a long weekend in antwerp. Its a great apartment, perfect location as its right in the middle of the heart of antwerp, yet peaceful and quiet despite being beneath a bar! The decor is really funky, with gorgeous retro furniture, comfortable bed and sofa bed, and great kitchen and free standing bath! A lovely place to come back to and make a cup of tea and chill out, and enough space for the three of us. The owner is also really lovely and helpful, and recommended some fabulous restaurants and bars to go to. Definately highly recommend this apartment! A great way to stay rather than a bland, unintersting B&B; or hotel!

Das Aplace Apartment befindet sich an einer der schönsten Orte in Antwerpen. Der Vrijdagmarkt ist etwas versteckt und dennoch sehr zentral, mitten im Modeviertel. Wir haben uns in Antwerpen, wie auch im Apartment sehr wohl und zuhause gefühlt. Karin hat es sehr schön, mit ausgesuchten Deisgnstücken eingerichtet. Die kleine Küche war auch sehr wertvoll für uns, wir frühstücken auch gerne mal "Daheim". Das unser Hund willkommen ist, war für uns auch sehr wichtig, und Karin liebt Hunde, wie wir bei unserer Ankunft bemerkt haben. Und sie hat uns sehr viele tolle Tipps für Restaurants, Cafés und Shopping gegeben und war immer da, erreichbar für Fragen jeder art. Wir kommen sicher wieder !

De ideale ligging: Van de Vrijdagmarkt wandel je langs de Groenplaats naar de Grote markt op minder dan 6 minuutjes. Het Munthof, het ModeMuseum, de Schelde, Hetsteen ... allemaal om het hoekje! Het uitzicht: leuk, klein, rustig pleintje met een parking dichtbij. De kamer; (2/1) gezellige ruime kamer met een goed bed, warm donsdeken, TV (Telenet) met perfect werkende/snelle wifi (gratis), mooie grote badkamer met kwaliteitsvolle welriekende producten :-) Mogelijkheid tot het zetten van lekker Illy koffie, frigo, water ... (gratis) ... Onze hoofdkussens waren voor onze norm 'te goed' gevuld. Bekijk ze vlug even, want je kunt ze ruilen indien je dit wenst. De ontvangst was gewoonweg super. Zit je met vragen voor een café of resto? De eigenares zal je goede tips geven. Dank je wel Karin, het was gezellig en de tips waren Top !!!

Apartamento ubicado en el casco antiguo de Amberes, muy cerca de la catedral. Seleccionamos esta opción para pasar un fin de semana de amigos, al ofrecer más comodidad y ser más barato que un hotel. Nos quedamos en el apartamento de la tercera planta, muy tranquilo y luminoso, con decoración vinagre muy acogedora. Baño y cocina moderna. Karin nos dio todo tipo de facilidades para acceder al apartamento, así como recomendaciones de restaurantes. Hay un parking muy cerca.

Ravie de mon séjour dans la suite 2/2 'The Cabin'. Déco très cosy et personnelle, chambre confortable et au calme à l'arrière du bâtiment, donc aucun bruit venant de la place. Petite salle de bain avec produits Rituals et peignoirs à disposition. Wifi gratuit et tv avec chaines numériques. Il y a une kitchenette à partager avec l'autre suite, avec une machine à café et un frigo à disposition, très pratique. L'emplacement est également idéal, sur une petite place près des commerces et restos, ainsi que des petites boutiques de la Nationalestraat. Le contact avec Karin a également été très agréable dès la réservation, elle est très disponible, souriante et de bon conseil. Nous reviendrons sûrement, et nous essayerons cette fois un des appartements, plus pratique pour cuisiner.

Het appartement is mooi en met zorg ingericht. We voelden ons er onmiddellijk thuis. Het ligt heel centraal, vlakbij winkels en boetieks, fraaie architectuur, veel cafeetjes en gezellige stadssfeer. Toch is het er 's nachts rustig, zodat we lekker hebben geslapen. Karin heeft goed voor ons gezorgd; ze is in de buurt en was altijd telefonisch bereikbaar als we vragen hadden, maar gaf ons ook alle privacy. Een echte aanrader!

The location of the apartment is great and the city view out the living room window made it a pleasure to sit and talk with friends. It is a bit of a walk from the train station but once you settle in you are only a few blocks from everything around the city center. The kitchen was well appointed enabling us to eat breakfast and dinner in. The owner was very willing to be helpful but everything was in such good condition we needed little from her except a little advice about grocery shopping which was very close
