About This Listing
Rent a room within a 125yrs old castle apartment located within the city limits of Antwerp. Everything has been recently renovated with nice Oriental touches and the artist-owner's paintings and a unique signature marble floor.
A private elevator will bring you straight into this apartment, and you will have your own key to your space.
You will be blown away with the private space that includes a lush bathroom with a huge round whirlpool jacuzzi in the castle's mosaic tiled tower room, a separate multifunctional shower with rain shower and jet massage showers, and a large windowed Finish sauna with ample space to lay down. There's also a fully automated shiatsu seat which will give you a great body massage. This will be private for your own use during the stay.
LED lights will set the mood right for a romantic evening and modern appliances such as sensor light switches and dimmed lights, as well as coded entry passes are all part of this luxurious get-away.
this is part of the same location you can rent as a whole apartment (see pictures on the other listing)
by opting for the room, you will not have access to the terrace, living room nor kitchen.
bedroom, bathroom, wellness and toilet are completely seperated from the rest of the apartment and accesible through one door.
it will be your own private oasis.
Interaction with Guests
The space you are using is yours during the whole stay. I travel a lot, if I am home I will make sure to double check on your room while you visit the city. Upon your arrival you will get a full tour with instructions how to use everything and you will get a written manual should you forget anything. Furthermore you will be shown the map of Antwerp and your location and pending your interests you will get directions and tips where to go or what to do. During your stay i will always be reachable for aditional assistance if needed.
I'm sure you will find it so relaxing and cozy you probably may want to cocoon the entire stay.
But then again there is so many to see in Antwerp. So much to choose from: museum, shopping, restaurants, beach, waterfront, biking trails, diamonds, chocolates, fashion, the list never ends.
Summer or winter, Antwerp has many things to offer year-round.
The place is very close to the heart of Antwerp city and the harbor, and just few steps from the Diamond district and worlds voted nr 1 most beautiful railway station.
from my place it's easy to get around, most people will love to walk to the city (about 15-20minutes) or others will take the bus or tram pending where they want to go.
or you can rent a city bike (velo. be) at a terminal just around the corner for about 3.80€/day
To get to my place is also easy: if you come by train I suggest you step off just before the central station stop, it's called Antwerpen Berchem. This stop is only a 15minutes walk from my place and is easy to find.
Other Things to Note
a basic set of towel and sarong per person are provided free of charge.
if you want to indulge yourself or add an extra to your surprise or your romantic weekend you can opt for the deluxe set which includes a double set of towels, a sarong and a bathrobe per person as well as a chilled bottle of bubbles with glasses! (or white/red wine as you wish).
we will also flavor the water in the sauna for you to indulge an aromatic experience when pouring water on the hot stones during your sauna session.

Erg mooie suite van alle gemakken voorzien. De private Wellness ziet er erg mooi uit en alles werkt naar behoren. Francis zorgt voor een warm welkom en vertelt je alles wat je wilt weten over Antwerpen, ook geeft hij uitgebreide uitleg bij alle apparaten in de suite. De suite is ook nog voorzien van een massagestoel die erg van pas komt na een lange dag lopen door de stad. Locatie op een paar minuten fietsen van het centrum, fiets verhuur om de hoek. De luxe van een hotel helemaal voor jezelf, gecombineerd met persoonlijke service! Een echte aanrader dus!
Francis gaf ons een uitgebreide rondleiding van de kamer en liet ons gelijk alle bijzondere plekjes van Antwerpen zien op de kaart. De wellness die die de kamer bezit was als beschreven, geweldig! De suite is vrij ver van het historisch centrum, maar met de gehuurde velo's was het prima te doen.
Francis was erg flexibel mbt. de tijd van aankomst en wij werden hartelijk door hem ontvangen. We konden onze auto het hele weekend gratis in de garage onder het gebouw parkeren.
Francis heeft ons de kamer laten zien en de apparatuur duidelijk uitgelegd. Ook gaf hij ons goede tips om Antwerpen te ontdekken.
De kamer was fantastisch! Het bad en de sauna zijn heerlijk. Het ziet er prachtig uit. Enige minpuntje was het bed, kennelijk hadden gasten voor ons het iets te wild gebruikt, want een groot aantal latten waren niet meer op spanning en zakten door.
Antwerpen is een leuke stad om te ontdekken. Met name de fietsen van de velo-punten zijn hier een geweldig middel voor.
thank you for this nice comment. as we do care about the best experience we installed a brand new bedspring. the otherone was only one year old but we noticed the quality was not sufficient. now there is a bedspring split in 2 seperate supports covered with one piece 2persons mattress. the bedspring has 42 wooden supports each. really comfy now !
Francis was an excellent host. Everything was well organised. The place was as described and very comfortable. The tram station and cycle stand were quite near, making the city easily accessible. Francis also suggested some very interesting things that we could do around the city. He was very helpful and allowed us to leave our packed luggage until evening after checking out. We had an amazing time.
Wat een geweldige ruimte om in te verblijven! Heerlijk om na een dag Antwerpen even bij te komen door middel van sauna of jacuzzi. Alles is prima onderhouden en alle functies (en dat zijn er veel) van alle apparatuur wordt keurig uitgelegd bij aankomst. Het appartement ligt verder op 15 minuten (tram) of 20 minuten (lopen) van het centrum, dus ook daarvoor is het prima te doen! Ik zou het verblijf hier dan ook zeker aanraden.
