I stayed 3 nights at the De Witte Lelie in July 2012 in a junior suite. My room and bath were spacious. This is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and just merits that, but is more comfortable than luxurious. My room had all expected amenities, but without character or any special appeal and was relatively spartan in appearance.
There was a comfortable lounge chair and a conventional upholstered chair. Halogen spot lights provided good lighting. Internet access was free and satisfactory. My room on the courtyard was very quiet except for a couple of episodes of loud footsteps and furniture moving on the wood floor above. The room had steam radiators for heat which I used sparingly and was comfortable. I did not need air conditioning because of cool weather. The large bath had a separate shower with lots of quickly-arriving hot water.
Breakfast was reasonably good, but overpriced. The "orange juice" was a strong contender for worst in the world. I didn't have any more after the first sip.
The location for old town sights is excellent, just a few blocks from the Grote Markt. This is a small family-run hotel and the staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. The recommendations for dinner restaurants were outstanding and resulted in astonishingly good meals.
Antwerp is lacking in quality hotels. This was my second stay in the city and the De Witte Lelie was considerably better than the hotel of my first stay. It is a comfortable, convenient and friendly place.
Antwerp is a nice city. I much prefer it to Brussels.
