I arrived extremely exhausted at this hotel. But that is what happens after a long flight, followed by a few meetings without any sleep. The receptionist noticed this and therefor allocated me a room on the back side, since it's more quiet there. He also did the check-in extremely efficient and friendly. Since I was eager to go to the room as fast as possible, I was told to stop by reception later on for all the information regarding the hotel's facilities, breakfast, connections to the airport and so on.
I took a nap in the bed and it was very comfortable. In the bathroom they have both large soapdispensers and some more traditional bathroom amenities. This way you never run out of anything!
When I got back to the reception, it seemed as if the receptionist was able to read my mind! The information I got was fitted for me and obviously not the standardised stuff they tell you in every hotel. When we've gotten to the part about dinner, I noticed that the hotel's restaurant was quite busy. So he made a reservation for me in a restaurant along the river called Zuiderterras. Their 'terras' outside was lovely and the sun was blazing. However since it is elevated and not next to any other high building, there was a gently breeze. The food there was great and the prices not high at all, so you have to check it out if you're in Antwerp.
On the second day I had dinner in the restaurant at the hotel. The quality of the food was not as good as in the other restaurant, but it was OK. You will find a little bit of everything on the menu.
The health and leisure centre is awesome. The've got an infinity pool, sauna, steamroom and a spacious gym with great equipment.
There are great people working in this hotel, in particular Jens (reception), Anais (reception) and Wouter (restaurant). You guys made this a memorable stay. Thank you!
