I traveled to Antwerp with my husband, who was on business, and since we could not be booked into the Hilton (where he was working) for the entire week, we were reserved a room at De Witte Lelie for the first three nights of our trip. What a blessing, since this hotel definitely colored our stay in Antwerp in a delightful way. We arrived very early (9 AM) from a long overseas flight, and were checked into our room immediately. There were 2 flights of stairs to our Junior Sweet, but we were helped with our luggage up to a room with slanted ceilings, soft lighting, and modern decor with a courtyard view. We found the bed divine, needing a short nap after the flight, and the bathroom was large and beautiful. Two sinks, a bath, and shower, very clean and nicely decorated.
The location was perfect, on a cobbled street in the old section of town. You rang the buzzer to be let in the heavy front door, always welcomed in with a smile. It felt very homey and relaxing to be come back after a day of work and/or sightseeing. The free mini bar stocked with Belgian beer and juices was an added bonus!
I tried the breakfast one morning, fresh fruit and eggs to order, even offering meats and cheeses, as well as cereal and yogurt. I enjoyed my meal, even though I found it a bit pricey, I'm glad I experienced it.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for something a little off the beaten path, a home away from home, and a place to relax and feel welcome in Antwerp.
