This is not a 5 star super-luxury hotel but nevertheless a very decent place to utilize as a base for exploring the Antwerp sights. My review is based on 2 night stay in May’09.
Right in the middle of Antwerp Groenplaats square with lots of bars and restaurants within a stone’s throw. So you certainly don’t die of hunger or thirst in this place… Also plenty of shopping activities nearby, for example hotel lobby is directly connected to a mall.
Had a reasonable sized Executive Room in the 5th floor, not the biggest I’ve seen but more than enough for me as a single traveler. There was 32 inch LCD TV and the normal equipment such as safety box in the room. Bathroom had separate bath and shower sections. There was some noise from the corridor but very quiet otherwise.
Room had a complimentary 1l water bottle and some kind of gourmet vegetable plate. Oh and some Belgium chocolate, of course :-)
Tap in the bathroom broke down completely! It was quickly fixed though
Didn’t try restaurant or gym so cannot comment them.
As HHonors Diamond member I was updated to executive floor and thus had access to the fairly large Executive Lounge. Sparkling wine was available apparently pretty much throughout the day. Breakfast in the lounge was OK, no great selection but anyway including also a small hot food selection (which is not always the case in this kind of lounge). I didn’t attend the evening hors d'oeuvres due to many interesting bars & restaurants in the city.
It was somewhat visible that hotel has not received a renovation lately, for example elevators were a bit outdated & slow. Not a major issue though since there wasn’t any peeling paint or stains in the walls etc as such
Would I return there?
Yeah, sure. Nice location for exploring Antwerp and not that expensive
