First impressions are of a high rise concrete ediface next to the ring road are not the most welcoming! No amount of foliage and flags can bring this round, so something inside needs to be good; it's not, sadly. The reception is to the right, round a corner past some large posts and the bar and restaurant are to the left of the main entrance. When you walk in, you see a wall and some large posts. The reception staff have always been friendly on all the occassions I've stayed.
The rooms. The higher up you are, the further from the traffic noise of the ring road (especially on the northerly end of the building). I have had some tired rooms a while back but everything seems refurbished now so they're fine. They will upgrade you for €30 (if I recall correctly) so even if you're Platinum Priority Club member you'll not get an upgrade as they have their own programme.
The bar. A rather unremarkable place to be.
The hotel is not central, but there is a bus stop outside with buses 17 (Centraal Station) and 22 (Groenplatz) costing €1.60 single. The ride takes 15 minutes and is worth it as Antwerp has so much to offer.
I have heard the gym and pool are good, but I've yet to test them.
As hotels go, it's okay, but it needs something, character perhaps.
