Century Hotel
Ranked #61 of 74 Hotels in Antwerp
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I've just returned from Antwerp having booked the Century as part of a Eurostar package deal.
I really couldn't fault it for the price.

-Central location outside the impressive station
-Clean
-Very good Breakfast with freshly baked bread

It's a busy, basic B&B that fully delivers as a Three Star Hotel.

PS:
It's important to note that they will charge for a City Tax (€1,50 per person per night) even on a fully inclusive per-paid package!

If your'e visiting this hotel in summer be warned:
-Windows cannot be opened.
-Reseption staff is unruly and unpleasant.
-Do not Visit this hotel if your'e suffering from Asthma.
-No Airflow in the rooms.
-Standard should be of a Motel (2 star), or lower. becuase its a terrible dusty old tiny place.
-Inspection and cleaning : 5/10
I will never get back to this hotel, ever.

Room Tip: there are 2 rooms where you are able to open the window. ask for them in the reception, if your'...

Just returning from a lovely break at the Century hotel in Antwerp. I stayed there before and am pleased to say that it still offers the same friendly service and good value for money. The hotel is located opposite the side of Antwerp central railway station and on the edge of the Diamond District. A tourist tax is payable at this hotel - a charge of 1.50Euro per person, per night, payable in advance.
Rooms are ok in size, with a small bathroom. There is no air con or ceiling fan. It was quite hot when we stayed, but not too bad in the room. I think this was because we stayed on the 2nd floor and our room overlooked the station, so the sun couldn't blare through the window. Rooms were kept clean and tiday, with bedding changed quite regularly.
There is a large breakfast room on the first floor. A good selection of rolls and breads, cheese and cold meats, some salad and a little bit of fruit. There are also jams, spreads and yoghurts. The hotel has an excellent Coffee machine, offering an array of hot drinks and also 4 different juices and water. The hotel caters for large coach parties and the tables at breakfast seat up to 8 people.
Overall, an ideal hotel for those on a budget who like a nice central location.

I stayed here in June 2014 when making a quick trip to Antwerp for a PhD thesis defense. the room was booked by the University. On the positive side, the hotel is conveniently located next to the train station and the rooms were clean. On the negative side, there is NO air flow in the rooms unless you open the window and that invites the noise from outside as others have noted. the WiFi worked fairly well and the breakfast was a low budget petit dejeuner. The hotel was filled with elderly British people who appeared to be enjoying themselves. I would not stay here again since there are other hotels with similar locations that are much more highly rated.

was a bit sceptical seeing various reviews. Yes my room was a bit dark and carpet could do with a deep clean but apart from a couple of residents who did not understand how to close their room doors was very quiet. WiFi worked fine h ad no problem with it. Breakfast was typical continental style which was lovely so you did not have to rush. Receptionists were very helpful in regards where to go and provided a decent map of Antwerp. Eating wise I choose to eat out near cathedral. Right next to station which is convenient.

The room was little dark, but absolutly hot and the WIFI was not working at all and there is no opportunity to use a cable. At night the taxi drivers at the Cental Station were shouting all the night and due to the high temperature we couldn't close the windows.
However it is located at a nice place, the dinner is delicious and the staff is extremly friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for one, not located at the side of the Central Station

Don't be put off by the shabby exterior - once inside, this is a delightful hotel. Our room was a little dark, and the WiFi didn't really work on my phone, although my husband had no problems with it. The bathroom was surprisingly large for an inner-city hotel, and they even had a shelf in the shower so you didn't have to do gymnastics between the shampoo and the shower gel!

The restaurant was officially closed on a Sunday evening, but they nevertheless did us a good meal; I left my cardigan in there, but the staff were incredibly helpful, and retrieved it for me when we returned to the hotel to pick up our luggage (they let you store it there after checkout if you are not leaving just yet).
