“Great Hotel !”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

The Theater Hotel is a great hotel: Sharp priced, friendly staff, good breakfast, clean rooms. Excellent location, nearby the centre but in a quiet street (near the famous "vogeltjesmarket" on Sunday). Only 10 min. walking distance to the Great Market square (with lots of restaurants). GO !

Room Tip: The luxury rooms have wooden floors, the standard a bit of old carpet....

The hotel is located in the city center, next to the "Vogeltjesmarkt" (Sunday Morning).
Rooms clean and spacious. Parking around the corner.
Friendly staff.

You know it is bad when the person who has booked the Hotel apolgises when you meet them in the bar after checking in, as their room was as worn out ( leaking fridge causing a wet carpet in the bedroom), Corridors realy old and worn out. I suspect the Owners are struggling as there are lots of new big chain Hotels around the corner, and we only stayed here as the others were full.
Bed was OK, shower and bath were poor and at €155 a night it was completely over the top for pricing.
I weren't want to stay here again and there are much better places to stay in Antwerp

Reviewed 9 February 2011

I arrived with 7 business colleagues for a one night stay. When we went into our rooms we were greeted with dirty stained carpets, (one room had blood stains on the carpet), all rooms smelt full of stale smoke, 4 rooms you wouldn't sleep with the windows open as they backed onto a car park and emergency spiral staircase and all had bathroom tiles with dirty grout. The shower tube in my room was too short so you had to stand far away from the shower head, plus the shower curtain stuck to you as you showered.The reception said they could not change our rooms as the hotel was full. At 10.30 pm we decided to try to ask for some hot drinks, to which the bar waiter replied 'no hot drinks, all finished, no time,too many people' . When we complained this time the reception staff apologized and said he was flustered with the 15 people in reception. There is no way this hotel is 4 star. We were so disgusted and had such a bad nights sleep we didn't complain to the hotel reception in the morning, we just wanted to get out asap. I would not recommend this experience to anyone. Not for 148 euro per night and not even if it was for free.

Reception was not the most helpful, room was ok, not 4* though, breakfast was dissapointing. I will definately look elsewhere if visiting Antwerp again. overpriced internet. Noisy room as it was next to lift shaft so had a lot of clunking.

Reviewed 26 October 2010

The hotel is nicely located close to the shopping streets. The Grote Markt area is only 15 minutes walking away. Directions for parking and a busy breakfast are well expained by the reception staff. The rooms are large and have all necessary items. Breakfast can be busy but if you come before 9 am (in a weekend) there is plenty of space and it is encouraged with a glass of bubbles.
Staff are friendly.
Overall a good impression and a nice stay.

The hotel is centrally located, rooms are large but could need some refreshing touch (carpets ...). Good breakfast with good service.
BUT.
Reception is from ignorant to unhelpful. They don't seem to care, very distant.
The front rooms can be noisy, to the backside there is a huge parking lot which might be a problem. This not so cheap four star hotels charges 5 Euros fro 15 minutes internet. Phone calls are abusively expensive, don't use their phones. No reaction to complaints.
