In short, I was very satisfied with this hotel. I wish all of the hotels I stayed in were this commodious, tasteful, and affordable.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in #14, a large room (perhaps 300 square feet) on the first floor. It was perfectly functional, and it had a few touches that kept it from being as sterile as many hotel rooms are. The room had high ceilings with some period moldings preserved, large windows (with curtains) facing St. Jansvliet square, wall-to-wall carpeting, and a small, recently remodeled bathroom that met our needs. The room was furnished with queen bedframe (with two twin mattresses), a nice armoire and side table (used as a TV stand), and wicker furniture. There was only a little noise, from the occasional passersby on this quiet street.
Since I had visited Antwerp before, I chose this hotel in large part because of the location, and I wasn't disappointed. It was close to the cathedral, the river, and other historic sights, but just far enough away from tourist attractions. St. Jansvliet itsef can be pleasant, and we enjoyed a few beers at a small bar on the opposite side of the square. The hotel is also quite close to the fashion and vintage stores in the St. Andries neighborhood, and a pleasant 20-minute walk to the Museum of Fine Arts and the 't Zuid neighborhood, where I wish we could have spent more time.
The front desk was staffed by young women who efficiently checked us in and out and quickly restocked the standard Continental breakfast buffet when it had been depleted. The light-filled breakfast room, which also faces the square, was a pleasant place to start the day.
