Ibis Budget Antwerpen City Central Station
Ranked #16 of 72 Hotels in Antwerp
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We spent two nights at the Ibis Budget in May. We had to pay in advance at check in which is something I don't really like. Our room was on the first floor--I wanted something higher but as long as the window was shut we didn't hear any outside noise so it wasn't a problem. The front desk clerk was very friendly.

This hotel has been recently renovated (rebranded from Etap to Ibis Budget) so it was very clean and brand new. The rooms are designed to be functional but I found the bed a bit uncomfortable--my husband like it though. I also thought there could have been a few more hooks to hang towels particularly since they encourage you to reuse them.

The wifi worked great in our room.

The location is great if you're arriving/departing by train.

Overall it's a good value budget hotel and if you're familiar with the Ibis Budget brand you won't be disappointed.

Conveniently located behind the Antwerp Central Station at walkable distance of 5 mins
Good location , if you need to frequently catch trains to various locations. Can use the restaurants located inside the Central station or the large number of restaurants located on the other side i.e in front of the central station, plenty of food options to choose from for a week's stay ! A Supermarket LDIL located just next door for convenient purchases of daily food needs, The In house restaurant is good for breakfast only.

Room Tip: check Wifi signals in the room before occupying it. Rooms father away from the Elevators are silent...

I had stayed in Ibis Budget during my 2 day holiday trip to Antwerp.
Pros
1. Location - Just behind the historic centraal station
2. The rate per night is pretty descent
3. The front desk staff is friendly

Cons
1. The rooms are not really basic
2. We found the room really hot during the day~ no ventilation. Windows have to be opened for ventilation
3. My wife found the bed bit hard; But I was OK with the bed.

Hope these inputs are helpful

Cheers

Due to the rail works the train from Antwerp to Den Haag was not operational on Sunday, and I was forced to spend the night at Antwerp and catch the train on Monday morning. As it was just for a night, I wanted a basic accommodation, nothing fancy. I looked for a budget place close to the railway station, which is not expensive, and ended up booking this hotel on the Internet.
What worked for me was the location and the price point of the Ibis Budget Hotel. I was happy with both. The hotel is just two minute walk from the rear entrance of Antwerp Centraal.
The rooms are extremely basic, but nice and clean. The window on my 6th floor room had a nice view of the city. The shower cubicle, reading lights, linen etc. all are functional, and typically what you would expect in a budget hotel.
If that is your requirement in the vicinity of Antwerp Centraal station, this hotel becomes an automatic choice.

It's a great budget hotel.
Very clean and very comfortable too.
It's not a romantic city vacation hotel but it's perfect if you need to stay next to the train station.
The staff was nice and welcoming and we had a good night sleep.
There is a nice light system in the rooms.

The towels and pillows were very thin but you can just ask for an extra pillow.

Good and a very good value for money.

There is a very nice cafe very close by that serves organic tasty goods.

Excellent hotel, modern, clean and with friendly staff. Although for people who cannot manage a long walk, it is a little too far from the old town where the best restaurants are ,but public transport is available within the immediate vicinity and there are several good eating places nesr Central Station.

This hotel does what it says on the tin, My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights recently on a trip to Antwerp to go to 2 all-night raves in the city. I wanted a very cheap room in a good location, and wasnt too fussed about fancy add-ons and extras. The staff were really friendly and offered s maps nd advice for the city. They leave you alone as well if you want to sleep through the day as we did. The rooms were clean and athough the shower and toilet were tiny, they served their purpose. The beds were small and not mega comfy, but we weren't caring for only £16 each for the night. towels were really small - so maybe pack your own one.
The locaton was the big selling point for us. It is practically joined on to the train station which is the hub to the city, only a few mins walk from the main shopping district and the zoo. Also the metro is very close too, which is a great way to get to outer parts of the city such as the event centres we went to in Waagnatie and Metropolis.

Room Tip: any room will do at that price. You don't really get a view as such.
