The location is simply lovely. Right in the middle of Antwerp city centre, still a block or two away from the noisiest, most crowded areas. We were welcomed by a nice and polite lady. She recommended us to upgrade to a bigger room as the one we had booked was very small. We checked both of the rooms and she...

Easy check in, friendly reception, welcome drinks and free food in the afternoon. The rooms are simple designed. Concrete is not so friendly to live in.Modern but simple design . Breakfast is included in the price. Parking not so easy. But in walking distance at the market.

I enjoyed staying at Hotel Banks moderately. The best thing was beautiful breakfast. The worst thing was bad room making everyday. Poor cleaning. Very superficial. No towel changing. No trash emptying. There was one tall blondie front girl who is very nice and helpful. She gave good recommendations about restaurants. The location is unbeatable, next to Mode Museum.

The smallest room I have ever stayed in a hotel. Especially a hotel charging 100 Eur per night! Clean and warm, but come on! Recalls me timed when I was housed at a student dormitory, but than the room was bigger! Here there was not even a wardrobe or a closet. Breakfast is served. No buffet. Disappointing, given the price.

Nice hotel, fit for purpose hotel room (rather small, but it's clean and has all you need). The lounge offers free coffees during the day and drinks and bites from 16.30, nice! Location of the hotel is perfect, free parking at the river only 10 mins walk.

The Banks hotel is very well positioned in the picturesque city of Antwerp. The lobby of the hotel is like an art gallery with a great vibe. But sadly the staff were as chilly as the weather, and the room was the size of a matchbox, with a poor excuse of a bed and your typically Northern European tradition of...

The location of this hotel is really spot on, it's right in the center with walking distance to everything. Or just use the bikes for rent all over town, excellent service and easier to going a bit further. The decoration style of the Banks is very modern, like an industry.

Situated in the heart of Antwerp the site of this hotel is great, its quiet and central. However the rooms are very basic with an un decorated theme, concrete walls/ceilings etc. A copy bed but very limited breakfast as there is no real kitchen and as a coeliac little in the way of options.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BANKS, a wonderful hotel where you can find a Daytime Café and a Lazy Lounge. Located right in the middle of the most fashionable area in town. You will be charmed by the original and modern look of its interior design. Wood, glass and concrete were melted together to enhance a harmonious mix of design and tradition. The furniture has been selected with the utmost care and is completed by their owners creations. A display of exhibitions by young artists decorate the walls. The result is fresh, bright and invigorating. Lounge next to the open fire place or a stroll straight into town? Always feel welcome at BANKS! ... more   less
