Ibis Budget Antwerpen City Central Station
Ranked #17 of 72 Hotels in Antwerp
Reviewed 6 June 2012

We were a party of three friends, sharing a triple room. The staff were very helpful indeed and always on hand to help, offering to change us to 3 singles rather than the double and single we had booked. The location is excellent, close to the station and the room very comfortable with 2 single beds and one equally comfortable bunk bed which I slept in for two days. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and this hotel was an amazing bargain. Our room had a excellent shower room and separate toilet. It was very clean and cost less than some hostels with lesser comforts and standards of cleanliness. We did not eat breakfast here but instead breakfasted in style nearby at Pain Le Quotidien with the money we saved! We almost booked the Lindner Hotel next door and were glad we made a last minute change to this hotel, we visited the Lindner for drinks and found it to be rather soulless, perhaps because it was very quiet.

The only downside to our stay here was that on returing to our room, we noticed that only one bed had been changed instead of all three so the cleaning team let the side down.

Room Tip: Breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien next door on the Piazza, delicious scrambled eggs, salmon, breads and...

We stayed here last october and the room was dire, however we visited again from 28th to 30th May 2012, all rooms have now been refurbished and they are to a high standard for a Budget Hotel, TV was excellent with some english channels. The wifi worked very well and is now free in rooms so a big plus, staff were very helpfull. Overall the experience was 100% better than last october and i would recommend to anyone who wants a budget hotel in a big sity very near to the main railway station.

Ok, when you book an ETAP you know what you are going to get. A basic and hopefully clean room.

I stayed here for four days and it was just fine for me. The hotel has a new name, it is now called the Ibis Budget. Pretty much the same though.

It is towards the south side of the central station and therefore provides very easy access to the centre of the city. Despite the vicinity to the station, I found the rooms to be very quiet.

The reception was friendly and efficient and were happy to provide maps and advice on restaurants etc. The hotel has free wi-fi in all rooms (the speed was very good). They also serve an all-you-can-eat breakfast for 7.50 EUR per person but I did not try it so can't say what it was like. There are also some vending machines in the lobby (drinks and light snacks).

There is a Le Pain Quotidien very close to the hotel. Great for breakfast or to grab a coffee. There is also a supermarket right next to the hotel and a night shop about 100m away. The station also has loads of shops in it including a small supermarket that is also open on Sundays.

I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are on a tight budget.

Okay not one of the most romantic hotels around, but it was good value for money.
Situated right behind Central Station is is an easy walk. The rooms are not very big and feel a bit like an Ikea childrens bedroom, but is was clean & quiet. We had a room in the non smoking part of the hotel with a nice view of the city.
The people behind the desk where very friendly and helpful. We did not include breakfast so we don't know if it was any good.

Decent hotel, clean and in a really perfect location when travelling by public transport. It's just 100 meters walking from the south maingate of Antwerp Central Station. Tramline 11 to the centre and/or Zurenborg also a short walk (200 metres) away.
We arrived late due to problems with the snow and it's effect on the train schedules. We could just buy some food and drinks at the Spar in the main Station hall (on it's way to the hotel) before 21.00 (closing time). There are nightshops btw in direct surroundings, we discovered later.
The room was for three people, it featured a double bed and a single bunk bed. Because it was very cold we asked for extra blankets (the small heather was sufficient btw) but due to the changing of the shift we received them after a second call. On the last night, there was a party down to hall, quite noisy the rest of the nights it was very quiet.
There are no coffee and or tea-facilities in your room. You have to but them in vending machines in the hall. The use of your own water boiler was strictly prohibited ;)
We didn't use any breakast options, good bakeries and fine eateries are all near by.
The Zoo is a 5 minutes walk, the Vogelenmarkt about 15 minutes. We liked it despite the fierce cold, we'll be back at the Etap in Antwerp!
