“love the room and location”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

for me i loved the dark minimal style of the hotel, judge by the photos if its your personal taste!

perfect base for the amazing antwerp shopping; dries van noten, louis antwerp, acne, coccodrillo shoes are all less than 10 mains by walk!

great welcome and local advice from the front desk staff!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the cathedral!

I chose the Hotel for the Position (in front of the Cathedral) and for the bath of the Cathedral rooms! The position is perfect and close to at least three big parkings, The room is really nice but really dark, so finding it nice or not, depend strongly on the personal taste, I liked it very much, and it was exactly like in the picture! Amazing bath and nice bed!
I notice that was not given enough attention to some details of the room and the hotel itself.
In general the review is totally positive.

We stayed for one night in this just opened hotel. We booked a standard room and got quite a large room (room 25) with a double bed and in a separate room 2 single beds. Space enough for us with our two small kids. The room itself was nice with a fantastic view at the cathedral: there was a bench in the window so that you can sit there and enjoy. Nearly everything in the room is black (walls, ceiling etc): some may like the design; I would have preferred a lighter version, but that is personal taste. As said a spacious room and nice Rituals amenities. You may have some noise from outside, but that’s customary with a city-centre hotel: city charm I would say. The location itself is more than perfect just across from the cathedral in historic Antwerp and you can park your car in de Groenplaats-parking that is just a 5 minute walk away. Given the recent opening, a mini-breakfast (coffee/tea, orange juice with a croissant and pain a chocolate) was included and that was good: nothing special but nice fresh things served in the lobby/café. Worth mentioning is the nice lady from the reception who arranged 2 baby beds for our kids (for free) and was very helpful with all our baby-requests. Overall: perfect location with magnificent view, fair pricing but the design is something that you must like.

This Hotel "brand new " well located in the heart of the historical centrum of Antwerp ,with rooms overlooking the cathedral, and easy to walk to the main sites - the Grote Markt, down to the river etc...do not offer the real needs of what i would call a real hotel !!

Rooms painted in mat black ,cheap furnitures and floors not clean do not allow to enjoy all the location ..Especially when you are on a business trip .

Some people may like this kind of design ,and particular atmosphere but for 110 €uros a night the location do not justify this price

This is a cozy place to stay in Atwerp close to everything. The view from our room overlooks the Plaza with an old church. Staff are friendly, rooms are great. Proximity to awesome selection of restaurants and bars. Great price...
