Zurenborg is an area in south-east Antwerp largely developed between 1894 and 1906 that features a high concentration of townhouses in Art Nouveau and other fin-de-siècle styles.
Zurenborg is a unique neighborhood, developed according an urbanistic plan in the late 19th century.
Art Nouveau houses are interspersed with neoclassical mansions and other eclectic architectural styles throughout Zurenborg.
These include Gothic Revival, Neo-Renaissance, Greek Revival, Neoclassical, and the "cottage style" that coincided with British Tudorbethan architecture.
The Dageraadplaats square in the north section of Zurenborg transformed from a neighbourhood shopping area into one of the most popular dining areas in Antwerp, and the art nouveau manions in Zurenborg draw high numbers of visitors and tourists.

Matthieu and Kersan
It was a pleasure to stay in Matthieu apartment. Everything is the same as on photo. Great center appartment in Antwerpen
Small, basic and nice flat in an wonderful part of town, with a great cafe and bakery in lovely old square nearby.
It's quiet and peaceful at night which meant a v good night's sleep.
Close to two major stations and trams which was useful.
The owner Matthieu is well organised and friendly, and replied to our enquiries/messages v helpfully!
We were able to park in front of the appartment for only €3,80/day!
Very close to public transport which is very convenient to visit the city centre without having to worry about parking (there is a tram stop a few meters away).
The place is very cosy, the fireplace is great in winter time. Communication with Matthieu was excellent, responded very quickly to our questions and requests. Great place in general.
We travelled with a 13 month baby who is just learning to walk so the place was a bit small for her demands... otherwise, great duplex for couples or friends.
Nous avons été bien accueillies, dans une ambiance décontractée. Nos hôtes ont été souple sur l'heure d'arrivée et attentifs à nos demandes.
L'appartement correspond au descriptif et est très bien situé, dans une rue calme, à proximité de nombreux restaurants et bars.
On peut se garer dans le quartier pour un ticket journalier : très pratique et pas cher. Au plaisir de revenir pour un autre séjour.
Room was as advertised. Small trouble with check in, but not a big deal. Room gets VERY hot in the summer so I recommend bringing a fan.
We had a very nice stay in this appartment (one month). It is located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood, but 50 metres from Dageraadplaats, a very lively square with terraces, restaurants and bars. I recommend to take the Velo city bikes in the same square to move around the city. Easy and fun!
Matthieu gave us nice info about the city and was always ready to help us if needed.
Toó irresponsible and unforgettable hollidays,(the Mother of Mattieu). I arrived in the right and in the right place to make the check-in but I wait 5 hours 36 min, after a journey of 16 hours, very tired, i try to call but the number dont was the correct number , A person walking down the street helped me to call an taxi to a hotel and I paid for 6 Days hotel, I sent an menssage com my phone number and call me in the morning .She give me another apt ,she give me the duplex with step and i spend 15 days without internet conection ,(i spend money every day in the internet in a shop in the street )i ask for because was difficult to conect the internet but she never help me, It was not correct and the phone number that is in airbnb to communicate with Mattieu was not Belgian number , the summary of all: I rent an apt without the wi-fi + mother of Mattieu rent me a duplex with stairs+ NOT THAT I WAS ABLE Booked WAS NOT THE SAME THAT I PAID APT and the picture ) +i spend extra money with another hotel+ taxi , And now they tell lies to feel better!!!!!!! Congratulation.
We saw the way you left the apartment and took pictures. You left without saying anything (like running away).
- The only way someone could leave the place behind like that is if crazy or taking drugs.
- You broke things, everything had been moved around, there was urine and water all over the place and someone spit on the walls, floor and heating. And I am probably forgetting things.
- It took us 6 hours to clean with 2 people.
- Then I had to spend a few hundred euros and half a day to buy new things.
- I send you a message concerning this and you never replied.
- We were waiting for you at the right place all the time, for some reason you say you were there waiting outside but didn't ring the bell.
- We gave you the same apartment as the one you booked, exactly the same as advertised, same as on the pictures, and there is nothing wrong with the apartment.
- The Internet was working, maybe you entered the wrong password?
Anyhow, if you had any complaints you could have contacted us or Airbnb, and it's no reason to destroy someone's property. This whole story just makes me feel really sad and disappointed.
