We stayed at Banks hotel to kick off a two-week jaunt around Western Europe and were very happy with this as our start. While difficult to find when driving (perhaps a larger sign would be helpful) the location is excellent, and within walking distance to many points of interest. There is a parking garage and bike rental up the street... More

Rooms are very small, and have poor basic finishing. concrete floor and concrete ceiling ! Balcony announced but you get 20cm of balcony. Wrong creation of expectations. Down lights under the bed, making every hear and dust immediately visible, so dirty look. Location: near city centrum. So ideal if you wanna be there, else not. Tram station however you need... More

Location: Perfect. Located between the North and South part of Antwerp, next to the restaurants, the main street, the malls and shops, to the pier, and to the Centrum. Rooms: tiny and basic. And with some nice design touches. For me space is not a big deal, I spend most of the day at the office or the shops, room... More

I don't recommend this place for this price, even though the location is great and the basic service is okay. It's the gap between expectation and experience. This is by far not a design hotel apart from the nicely furnished lobby. Pretentious place in many ways: rooms are dark, too small, cheaply furnished with way too soft beds and curtains... More

Stayed at the hotel on business, the staff were attentive and professional, the room was good, although it was a suite, but above all the location is excellent, I was driving and it is also quite easy to find.

We headed to Antwerp for a shopping&culture weekend and found Hotel Banks a nice place to stay. For business or special occasions you go elsewhere, Banks is for leisure. It’s located very centrally so that we could reach the shopping heaven walking and then bring bags back to our room and go out hunting again. At Banks they understand very... More

First of all, just to be clear, we experienced Banks as a vey nice hotel. But this was mainly due to the ideal location. The rooms are very basic and small. When you are on a city trip you will probably spend most of the time in town, however, we do think it is nice to retreat after a long... More

We stayed in one of the Suites and were rahter disapointed with the experience. The hotel itself is set in an amazing location. However, the cleaning of the rooms was not adequate. We had to ask for shower gel on four occassions with a two night stay before our request was granted. The fire in our room did not work.... More

I gave the Banks a second chance and was not disappointed. The key is to request an executive room. It is definitely worth the extra 20 euros a night. The hotel is centrally located. Service is OK, though the one person taking care of everything seems a little overwhelmed at times. The executive room was spacious (by Antwerp standards), modern,... More
