Trendy and colorful apartments in the heart of Antwerp
SHWAY offers in Antwerp a collection of trendy apartments at various locations. All apartments are situated in the central part of the city, allowing you to reach the coolest shops, dining spots, and attractions in no time. It's the perfect base for a weekend in Antwerp with your partner, girlfriend, or family!
The newest addition of apartments can be found under the name SHWAY 8, also known as Maison Brederode, and are named after important figures from Antwerp's history, such as 'Le Leopold'. This apartment references the Belgian politician and mayor of Antwerp in 1872, Leopold de Wael. The styling of the apartments preserves the building's classic features, blended with a modern and colourful interior, complete with a French touch.
You can choose from two one-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom apartments. Your choice will depend on your travel group and, of course, your personal preference. One thing is for sure: all apartments offer all the facilities for a comfortable stay. For example, bed linen and towels are made of Egyptian cotton, the bath products are from Rituals, and you will have a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with a rain shower.
In your own kitchen, you are free to cook up a storm undisturbed, but if you do want to venture out, Antwerp is full of restaurants where you can dine. From luxurious, gastronomic restaurants to cosy bistros, the choice is vast. In the centre, but also close to SHWAY 8. A stone's throw away, for instance, is the Michelin-starred restaurant Het Gerecht, where you will be treated to seasonal dishes prepared with fresh, top-quality ingredients. A perfect ending to a delightful day in this vibrant city!
