We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very friendly hotel. All the staff were charming and very helpful. Our room was large, with a comfortable bed, and very quiet. Breakfast was also very good with an extensive hot and cold choice available. We found the location very convenient with a tram stop nearby and just a short ride into the city centre. We were able to park right outside the hotel for just Euro 3.50 per 24 hr. We also found bars and restaurants within 12 minutes walking distance, and one of them (Cuichine) was outstanding. We will happily return on our next visit to Antwerp.

The hotel is well located. The staff is really nice. The English-style bar is cool. The room was very large with a comfortable bed, although two beds side by side. The bathroom was just OK, not more. A smaller room with better sanitaries and less cheap looking furniture would have been better. Mixed feelings.

A good hotel with very pleasant staff.
We had a junior suite and it was very comfortable.
Good breakfast - plenty of choice.
Just wish they did dinner as there are not many restaurants in the area.
Four tram stops into the centre of town.

Room Tip: Junior suite very good.

It was a pleasure having you as a guest in our hotel, and thank you very much for putting a review about our hotel on Tripadvisor.

Light snacks are served in our bar or through room-service. For full dinner, we do have a free taxi-service to several good restaurants in the city.

This was our second stay at this hotel and we were not disappointed either of the times. We chose the hotel as it allows dogs, has a garage (although the parking is expensive) and it is within good walking distance from the park and the centre, and you can find good restaurants if you are prepared to take a 15-minute walk.

Even though the corridors and lifts are in need of refurbishment, our room was nice and spacious with a separate dressing-room and a bathroom. The bed was comfortable, the desk was large enough for working at your computer and there was a nice sitting arrangement looking out over the terrace/balcony and the back yard with trees and other blocks of flats. In a distance you could also see the roofs of some of the more famous buildings in the city. The air-conditioning was good but rather noisy.

As we met up with friends both in the evening and the morning, we did not try any of the eating arrangements, but we did miss the possibility to make a cup of tea.

The staff at the desk was friendly and cheerful and even made friends with our dog.

This is a hotel I would recommend to anyone who does not want to be in the middle of everything, but not too far away either, and the possibility to walk your dog in the park nearby is an extra plus point.

Room Tip: Room towards the back are quieter, but ask for one without emergency fire stairs going through your...

Stayed here at the end of a 12 day family vacation. We needed to be close to a synagogue for the Sabbath. The hotel is clean, the air conditioning worked very well and it was indeed close to both synagogues and kosher markets. The price was reasonable and the front desk staff were extremely helpful. It was nice and quiet and my family was very happy.

This hotel was booked by organisers of a recent stag weekend I attended in Antwerp. I stayed in a twin room on the seventh floor on a Saturday night and did not eat there.

The hotel has the feel of a business hotel. A lot of marble and the kind of bar/lounge that I imagine people having informal meetings in. However I would say this hotel is a good all-rounder and I'd recommend it for breaks for business people, couples and even families.

Although I am not an expert on the layout of Antwerp it seemed to be slightly away from what I'd call the city-centre (5 minute taxi, 15 minute bus or 20 minute walk) and in an area that was clearly favoured by the Orthodox Jewish community.

Despite a rather large frontage the hotel has a small, easy to navigate layout inside. I stayed on the seventh floor and the rooms were very nicely laid out. The beds were exceedingly comfortable, TV's had some English language broadcasting, the bathroom was pleasant and comfortable in size and the windows, whilst not offering stellar views, opened widely allowing for a nice open air feel. A point of note however for families should be made is that wide-open windows on the seventh floor are not exactly 100% child safe.

The staff I encountered were pleasant and helpful, spoke excellent English and coped well with a large group booking for 20 people.

As I mentioned, I didn't try breakfast but the room it was held in looked pleasant and some other members of my party said it was perfectly acceptable.

I paid €94 (roughly UK£80 or US$125) and whilst this was not exactly a bargain, it felt like a fair price for the hotel generally. If you're quoted a figure in excess of €100 I would consider looking elsewhere, perhaps in a slightly more central and upmarket area but if you can do better than that rate, I would heartily recommend this hotel.

If I returned to Antwerp I would definitely look at staying there again.

Room Tip: As with many continental European hotels, lifts are extremely cramped and those with claustrophobia...
