“Excellent location next to the main station”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 days mid week in July. We had a large corner room (420). The location is excellent. We travelled around the city using the city bike system and the nearest bike station in next to the train station. The room was excellent, very clean, nice large towels. If you want to walk to the old town, when you leave the hotel, do not turn immediately right and walk down the street with the bus station on it, but cross the road to the tran station, then turn right and walk down the large pedestrianised road, lots of room for cyclists and pedestrians.

Excellent location opposite Antwerp main railways station which is an impressive site (good view from the breakfast room). Efficient check-in. Large room with big bed and two armchairs. Internet is free (up to three devices). Bathroom reasonable size. Breakfast was average but a typical continental Europe offering.

I have stayed here before, but the last couple of times I have been working in and around Antwerp it has been full … so it was good to be back.
Fantastic location and architecturally interesting building right on the town square with a commanding view of the stunning Antwerpen-Centraal (Antwerp Central) station building directly opposite.
I booked a ‘Business Class’ room with a Town Square view for 170 Euros which was upgraded to a Junior Suite for an extra 25 Euros a night, which I thought was OK.
It was one of the rooms with the distinctive round windows at the end – with a small square opening window in the middle of the round glass if you want to take in the buzz of the street action below.
It was a long narrow room, tasteful, unfussy modern décor, with the desk and sofa at the window end. Being the only window into the room – the back end of the room was a little dark, but nothing too dramatic – overall it was well lit, had a comfortable feel and was spacious enough.
There was a minibar / fridge, two large flat screen TVs, only one of which I could get going .. but that might have been pilot error! It also had an exercise bike in it which I thought was a bit bizarre!
The bathroom was cramped – also at the back end … It was really squeezed in and not particularly well designed – given the actual space available in the room. Other than that, it had all the standard accessories – Rad toiletries, etc. .. and some face towels even appeared on the second day!
The WIFI was free as is Radisson’s worldwide policy .. and it was super-fast around 300 + Kbs upload – so great!
The bar and restaurant downstairs is nicely designed and has a good ambience. I went down for a glass of wine one evening when I’d finished work. The wine was nice, although the glass was about the size of an egg-cup – so no points for generous portions!!! The next day I had a lunch meeting in the same place – the service was quick and efficient and the food fresh and tasty.
I will definitely stay there again next time I’m in town and try and book a room with the town-hall square as it’s a cool view. I’d also recommend it to others wanting a good standard business class hotel experience. Pleasant and professional which is what you expect from a Rad.

This is not a romantic hotel, nor a boutique one but if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, well serviced hotel at a good price then this is it.

The standard room is large, the bed was comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean and the rooms were very well serviced.

You can take a chance on getting a view of the station or pay 45 euros to guarantee it. We paid, but in future I would take a chance and spend 45 euros on a nice meal. There is also no need to upgrade to a superior room as the standard rooms are perfectly ok.

The breakfast was the standard hotel choice of cooked, continental, cereal and fruit, but at 20 euros it was the same price as a main course in a restaurant and twice the price of eating breakfast out. It did serve until 11am, though, which is a point in its favour.

We didn't use the spa or swimming pool but the pool looked very inviting.

Room Tip: Sound insulation is excellent so if you choose a room overlooking Astrid Square and the station you...

We were very impressed with the room we had at this hotel. For a standard room it was very large and well appointed. The bathroom was excellent with both a bath and a separate shower. The bed was a superking and was very comfortable. We were also impressed that we could ask for bathrobes - not a usual amenity provided in standard accommodation. The hotel is across from the Railway station and is walking distance from all the main areas of Antwerp. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Antwerp.
