Holiday Inn Express Antwerp City North
Ranked #10 of 73 Hotels in Antwerp
Reviewed 9 November 2013

I attended a conference near this hotel in October, so it's location at the northern side of the city wasn't a problem (it takes about 25 minutes to walk to the centre). I have stayed here several times and always enjoy it. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast are great.

I have been staying here since 7 years. This time the hotel has a facelift. The reception area is more open, breakfast area is larger and one can get a view on the docks behind while taking breakfast. The hotel is now completely smoke free so all rooms should be good. The lobby looks brighter and more lively reflecting the change in the nearby areas also. This entire area is now changing rapidly to become a cool and relaxed place. The new Red Star Line museum is a short away as is the MAS museum.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back are better. not much road noise.

If you book Holiday Inn Express you generally know what you are going to get and this one is no different. I could find nothing wrong with the hotel, everything was OK ... now I mean this as a compliment but equally nothing was really good either, just everything OK. I could have been anywhere in the world.
Everything is very clean and in good order, rooms are big enough with a reasonable desk and working area, bathrooms work just fine (although I am not a fan of the dual duty door arrangement), the TV gets a good range of channels including BBC although the position is a little awkward for in bed viewing.
Breakfast is typical continental buffet style, cheese, cooked meats, pastries etc. Nothing here that is going to excite but equally perfectly reasonable and better than some local hotels that charge €20 for the same thing. I actually managed to have a decent cup of tea.
As with all HIE's there is no restaurant (snacks only) however the hotel is situated only a few minutes stroll away from a small harbour area with a good selection of bars and restaurants some of which are very good. There is a small bar, absolutely fine, nothing great but perfectly OK.
The staff are attentive enough and are fluent in English - very helpful.
As downsides, the walls of the rooms are somewhat thin and you will be able to hear pretty much anything that goes on in the rooms either side of you (and I mean everything!), the location is out of the centre, quite a long walk or a taxi ride so not good if you want to be right in the middle of the action.
Definitely a good bet for a business trip, if you are holidaying there are hotels with more soul closer to the center.
There is free WiFi although after my free premium WiFi ran out for inexplicable reasons I had to use the "free" free WiFi which I found very slow for anything other than basic browsing.

Stayed for a 4 nights business trip. The hotel is situated 20 minutes from the town center at a yacht harbor and also next to a busy road on the other side. The room were clean and the bed was comfortable, the set-in coffee and tea was kind. The bathroom was also very tidy. The breakfast is nothing special but various. The staff was generally decent and helpful. No restaurant. Ideal for business trips.

Stayed here on the spur of the moment while traveling around Belgium last week. Typical Holiday Inn Express, minimal check in, clean and tidy room, great power shower and the ever satisfying buffet breakfast. Even had a secure underground car park which was most welcome if a little pricey. Location was a little bit far out of central Antwerp but still within a reasonable taxi ride to the shops and restaurants. Hotel was in a quite location and our room overlooked one of the river docks, really nice. Staff were polite and had a good grasp of English so all in all quite a good experience.
