Super location in the middle of the old city. Excellent breakfast served at a neighboring wine restaurant. You are within minutes from all the great sights and excellent in Antwerp.
I happened to get the noisy room. My room was close to the reception where everyone passes. But the assured told me that the all other rooms are quiet and next time I should ask for a quiet room.
The location, perfect for the historic centre of Antwerp and the design district.
One problem, common to all city centre hotels, is the noise from the street.
Very nice rooms, very good location
The hotel was in a good location, right near the main square. Hotel is clean and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Also, they have complimentary tea/coffee/soft drinks in the lobby.
It was hard to find. The road that it's located on isn't on many maps because of how small it is.
Good accommondation, Good service
The staff were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Always smiling. With it being a smaller hotel it felt much more personal, and when we arrived the person who checked us in made us feel really wecome. Check in was quick, we were in our room in minutes - which was great after a long journey to get there. Overall our stay in this hotel was a comfortable experience. We had read reviews saying the rooms were too small, however we found ours to be absolutely fine, we had no problems - and we had a fair bit of luggage with us.
The ceiling was not as sound proof as we would have liked, we could clearly hear the people above moving around above us. Had they been doing this very late at night or often it would have disturbed our sleep. However the double glazing shut out any noise from the street - which made the room quiet otherwise.
Location. Restaurants are open late.
Room too small. No bath, shower only. Safe did not work. Water kettle turned coffee/tea salty. Too many little annoyances. Poor breakfast. (good scrambled eggs though) . Internet cable too short. Bring your own.
Relaxed, friendly, very attentive sevice. Excellent help booking and recommending special restaurants. Lovely to unwind by the intimate open fire with complimentary glass of beer or wine after a long day sightseeing and shopping. Simple but chic accommodation. Great showers.
The sophisticated sound system in the room was erratic and the plug in the bathroom basin did not work, but these were small inconveniences.
