Very friendly staff and great hotel overall.
Location is not the best one and around shops and restaurants not nice.
Boutique hotel in convenient location
Friendly staff. Comfortable room, pleasantly decorated. Large bathroom with bathtub. Good buffet breakfast. Convenient free parking around hotel. Plenty of restaurants nearby.
WiFi not very reliable within bedroom, had difficulty, for example, booking flights. Rm204 view of backyard only.
*my tipIt's a half hour walk to Antwerp city centre, shopping heaven!
Most reviews I've read are inaccurate! Very nice hotel! :)
situated slightly away from town which meant it was quieter, and it wasn't far too town. The receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel as a general was stylish and clean. Room was big enough & balcony was wonderful! They lent us a travel adaptor too!
The bathroom was a tad on the small side but efficient, some plastic furniture but it was still stylish and useable. One major downside is that breakfast was 7am-10am which in my opinion isnt long enough especially considering its a buffet, we missed it and was looking forward to it! but to be honest, the negatives are really not outweighed by all the positives!!!
very nice staff
a renovation would not the worse thing, and an easier acces for hanicapped or elderly people - too many stairs at the entrance - no way for trollys!
nice place to stay
tidy room and good service at the front desk
pricy if it wasn't for the discount
Hot drinks in the room.

Free parking space direct in front of the hotel. Very nice and clean room. Good bed. Very nice bath room.
Breakfast is a bit poor.
While somewhat spartan by today's standards, this hotel gives a good value for the price. Very clean, good breakfast and close to the port area if you have business there, wireless internet in all rooms.
for those who carry mobile electronic devices: my room had only one electrical outlet! (I had to charge my cellphone in the bathroom...), Internet access is expensive (EUR 10 until noon), the hotel is a 25 minute walk from the old city
The hotel is at the dock but the area is quite nice and you can reach the city centre in 25 minutes walking (nice walk with many attraction to see on the way). The breakfast was nice and the hotel rooms as well (clean and modern but not super luxurious). I enjoyed very much my stay in Antwerp. Another good point is that parking is for free in the streets nearby!
