Bed & Breakfast B&B Villa rafels
Our guestroom Villa Rafels is tucked away in a quiet residential street named the Arthur Goemaerelei. This is making it the ideal hideaway from the busy streets of central Antwerp. Still you are only three kilometers away from the inner city. Within twenty minutes you will find yourself in the beautiful Flemish city centre. Antwerp has a lot to offer. You will find here many museums, shops, striking old and new architecture, but also the Antwerp Zoo, one of the oldest and most beautiful city zoos in Europe.
Villa Rafels is the perfect base for exploring a variety of city attractions like the Antwerp Zoo.
You could for example take an underground walk through the Antwerp Canals, taste our famous ‘Bolleke’ beer at the city brewery De Koninck, or visit Antwerp’s largest diamond showroom Diamondland. Or maybe you might like to hop on the Touristtram or the Diamond Bus and explore some Antwerp classics, always fun to do with kids. Children will certainly also like to visit Comics Station an indoor park based on Belgian cartoon characters! And this is just a selection from the wide range of possibilities to do in Antwerp

The guest room
Close to the heart of the city, with a bus and tramstation just a 2-minute walk away, Bed & breakfast Villa rafels is the perfect base for a business or leisure stay in Antwerp. You stay with an artistic family with three teenagers plus their three cats (cats are not allowed to enter the guest room under any circumstances!). The guest room is located on the ground floor of our house. You’ll feel right at home in the comfortable, double room. Your private bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet will freshen you up after a busy day in Antwerp. Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in the atelier right next to the bathroom and unwind as you watch your favourite channels on the wall-mounted TV while enjoying a nice cup of coffee or tea in your room. We offer you more than ‘just a room’. You will enjoy comfort and privacy in a homely atmosphere. At all times you can stay connected and stay up to date with work with complimentary Wi-Fi.
Next to the guest bathroom you find the atelier, with a cosy seating area where, in wintertime, the pellet stove burns. Here you can read something or you can linger and chat. Maybe about the experiences of your day in Antwerp. In the morning we also serve breakfast here. If you prefer to make your own breakfast, you can also find in the atelier all the practical necessities to do so. There is a small refrigerator, a microwave oven and crockery/cutlery are available. Your hostess Susanne knows how to welcome her guests to Bed & Breakfast Villa rafels!
