Son couldn't have made us feel more welcome it was just like visiting a dear friend. Convenient location, clean, wonderful breakfast, charming company. What more can you ask.
I would highly recommend this listing! Son was very nice, accommodating, and easy to talk to. She speaks flawless English and cooks an incredible breakfast. Very hospitable. Her place is very convenient to the train station as well.
Son was a great host! The apartment looked amazing, was clean and the breakfast definately the best way to wake up. On top of that there was a patio, which was a great surprise!
We stayed in the room facing the street, which can become very noisy over the weekend, so make sure you ask for the double room attached to the patio if you like to sleep quiet over the weekend.
I definately recommend the place.
Son is a really nice, friendly and helpful. She provided us city map with explanation of places to visit. We stayed there for two nights and it was nice and comfortable stay. The place is located just 10 Mins walk from the main train station and there is also a metro stop just 2 Mins walk from the apartment. The room was very clean with personal shower and there was small open-area attached to our room. The best part of the stay was the delicious breakfast ( Omelet, Breads, Pancakes, Cheese, Coffee/tea, yogurt, fruits and what not!) and it is just not the taste, the table was perfectly prepared (even at 7:00 am in the morning as we had to leave early). Son is really an active and cheerful person. I would highly recommend the place! Best Ankita and Raghav
Son is very friendly. The room is very confortable and well furnished.
The district is quiet and just 8 min walking from the station.
What can I say about Son's Pancakes? Just unforgettable!!!! Breakfast is perfect (cheese, ham, jam, bread, orange juice, tea...).
Thanks Son for you welcoming.
Son is an incredible host and a sweet spirit. She welcomed us kindly and took the time to share information and map of Antwerp, even though we arrived after 8 pm for our stay. The breakfast she provided our group was fit for a king and her conversation was lovely. Son goes above and beyond to provide her guests a comfortable and memorable stay. All of us in our group just adore Son and feel she is now a life-long friend.
We found the rooms to be very comfortable, private, clean, and well decorated. The house overall is beautiful and has a peaceful feeling to it. We loved the accommodations and Son's excellent hosting so much, we elected to stay another night!
You all were the sweetest guests! Leah, Jeff, Stephanie and James, people like you make my hosting worthwile, which means: becoming friends! :-)
Always very welcome to stay again! Love to meet again, here, there or somewhere on this globe.. Hugs, big X's and a smile from ear to ear! :D

About the Host, Son
I am Son! I enjoy traveling as much as most of our guests. Cycling is my passion, for short as well as long distances.
The Antwerp Central Train Station is a short walk from my house. If you would arrive by train, I will gladly come and meet you there, if you don't find your way here.
With the Metro station and rental bike stand around the corner, you can get to the old center of Antwerp in minutes, even when it's raining (which does happen in Belgium, from time to time...)
My job allows me to choose my working hours, so I can make time for my guests. Wifi is available, as are city guide maps and metro cards.
I hope to see you soon, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Ik ben Son, 'doorzomerde' fietster, van een trip naar Parijs tot een rondje wereld, en heb dan ook graag reizigersvolk over de vloer, om verhalen en ervaringen te delen bij het ontbijt.
Mijn job laten ons meestal toe om mijn werkuren te kiezen, dus kan ik vaak tijd vrij maken voor mijn gasten,
Als je vragen of opmerkingen hebt, aarzel dan niet om mij te contacteren.
Graag tot gauw, en warme groeten,
