Stayed here as was recommended by a friend. Beautiful modern apartment. Clean and in a great location. Very spacious and has great views by the docks. Breakfast in the mornings left outside our door was a real treat! Fresh towels every morning was fab. Quiet and homely. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Eden!

We spent 2 days in the Kool-Kaai apartment and there is just nothing to complain about! The apartment (there are 2 in the house) is perfectly furnished and has just a cozy atmosphere. From the huge window you can see straight to the river. You can walk within a few minutes to the MAS museum or the historic part of... More

We stayed for two nights. Really enjoyed our stay. Except for not being served breakfast at the hour we wanted, because 'the baker's is not open that early' (despite us seeing that one nearby baker's was open an hour before) we found the service to be excellent. Nice balcony with a great view over the river; only wish that it... More

A very lovely B&B in Antwerp. It has a very spacious and modern look and feel. The very nice breakfast is brought on your doorstep. It was a treat to stay here and we will definitely come back. I highly recommend this B&B for a romantic stay in Antwerp.

We stayed for 3 days in the studio. Loved it. Bed comfortable all conveniences. Breakfast delivered to door every morning was a treat. Easy walking to everywhere to explore this great city. We loved watching river traffic going by. We will be back.

Great accommodation with friendly hosts and a delicious breakfast basket delivered every morning. Dietary restrictions handled without problems. The property is in a very recently renovated building and has a well executed modern interior. Have stayed here twice this year now and will no doubt be returning in the future. Short stroll to absolutely everything.

We were delighted with our stay at Kool Kai. The breakfast was definitely one of the highlights but so were the super comfy bed, the beautiful and modern interior design, the wonderful view of the nearby river and the friendliness of the host. Would go back in a heartbeat!

The hosts were lovely. Communication when booking was clear, and their relaxed manner upon arrival set the tone for our break. The room was always clean and tidy, with a nice minimal interior. The natural light and view to the Scheldt was great. The breakfast basket was consistently good, with a wide variety of goodies within that changed each morning.... More

“Stayed in the studio. I don't think you can go wrong with either room.”

“Next time we will stay in the Duplex apartment for even more Luxury. All rooms have Views of the River”
 of 5 bubbles Crillpix, 16 Sep 2013 | Read review
“In August we stayed for two nights in the top unit, an architecturally designed two-storey split. Minimal and elegant, form follows function here with a practical kitchenette, bathroom, designer furniture and large glazed windows filling the space with natural light. Upstairs is a large couch, a library shelf with books, art catalogues and back issues of Wallpaper, and a beautiful wrap-around outdoor patio with exhilarating views over the old city and the river beyond. This is an perfect refuge for early mornings or evenings with a mind to watching the vitality and life of the city unfold. Breakfasts, which are left in a hamper at your doorstep, are welcome in their variety of breads, sliced meat and cheese as well as fresh orange juice and fruit. Our hosts were gracious, outgoing and, as it proved, very knowledgeable about the cultural assets of Antwerp and contemporary in general. Can't wait to come back for week or more next time!”
