Charming little boutique hotel in a great location in the center of Antwerp. A block off the riverfront and hardly a block from the Grote Markt and very nearby to great shopping and the Cathedral.
The hotel room itself was quite nice. Rather small and I believe not air conditioned, but was still quite comfortable. Our room overlooked a nice interior courtyard that was available for guests to use. Was quiet while we were there, but a rude guest in the courtyard could certainly change that.
But enough with the nitpicking, the bed, though a split bed in the annoying, yet typical european fashion, was quite comfortable and the shower and bath were quite nice. Our hosts were extremely helpful and accomodating and the common facilities were well kept and comfortable.
The value was very good as well. I found this to be the most inexpensive stay of our trip, and certainly of the nicer places we stayed.
