“Strange 4 star hotel”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

We stayed here on Saturday 18th of August 2012. The room was nice and large but we were not told we had to put the key in an odd slot just inside the door to operate the main lights. It also had an old TV that did not show the channels advertised. It was a hot humid night and the hotel was not air conditioned, the front desk delivered a portable unit but the vent had to go outside through the window. This let all the hot humid air into the room not the greatest idea. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in fact nothing drinkable in the room at all very poor! I think this hotel is trying to pretend to be part of the City Inn chain when it is a stand alone hotel. I will not stay here again and I would advise anyone else to think carefully about doing the same. PS no breakfast in the rate. From Tony G in the U.K

If you like highways and motels, then by all means. However, City Inn Hotel is certainly not luxe by any stretch of the imagination. The money that my mother and I had intended to save ended up being used to hire taxis to take us back to the hotel at night, since there is no train station nearby and the buses are extremely erratic, running on what appears to be a nonexistent timetable.

As a result of food poisoning, my mother was confined to the hotel room for one of three days for which we were in Antwerp, leaving her to grapple with filthy surrounds, a shower that wouldn't work as well as a rock-hard bed. Service was cold and unhelpful and the nicest person there was the housekeeper who appeared sympathetic when I told her about my mother's predicament. If I have to say anything positive about this hotel, it would be that it was ridiculously easy for my Dutch friend to come and pick me up to go to Breda for the day. That's about it, really.

For the three days I had accommodation in Antwerp, I only spent one day exploring the city (the other two days were spent in Breda and Luxembourg respectively). City Inn was no doubt a contributing factor.

Room Tip: Don't come here. Simple as that.

Reviewed 28 October 2009

I've been staying at this hotel regularly for 15 years and have never been disappointed. I use this hotel as a base for my visits around Belgium and booked 4 nights last week for a basic room. On arrival I was upgraded to a suite with kitchen, seperate bedroom etc. A full buffet breakfast is now included in the rate, with a fair choice to pick from. The only minor gripe is that for essentially a business hotel, the wi-fi is not free and has to be purchased extra. Also, when visiting in the summer months, be aware that they have a problem in the rooms with mosquitos, however they have electrical repellants available to borrow at reception.
