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

The hotel is excellently located between the North and South part of Antwerp. The standard room is small and basic, with minimal privacy, but sporting some nice design touches (black & white furniture, with one colourful carpet -- at least in our room, 402) and a fine bed. Breakfast is attractively served on a single plate, coffee & tea is... More

Banks Hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to the restaurants, shops and attraction. The reception area is very modern with a great bar areas, where drinks and snacks are served every evening, which is a lovely touch. The staff are friendly but the reception is not 24hours.

I stayed here for three nights over summer. It has a great location and upon entering the lobby you are filled with a night hope that this could be great hotel...but it turns out to be an OK hotel nothing special. It tries to deliver on a Mama Shelter-esque vibe and aesthetic but unfortunately does not quite hit the mark.... More

The hotel is in a very quiet neighbourhood but at a very good location - 5 minutes walking from the The Cathedral of the Lady. It is mainly done in white and orange with a very minimal feel in the rooms. The room had a comfortable double bed, seating couch, a decent size TV, a big lamp, small table, hair... More

Banks hotel tries to step away from the classic hotel formula. Especially the well designed breakfast room succeeds in this. The rooms try to be all arty farty..but fail miserably. They are not very spacious. There's no privacy if you want to use the restroom; only a glass wall and a curtain seperates you from your co-travellers. Nothing a good... More

Had a lovely stay at Banks Hotel. The room was very comfortable and modern. Loved the glass cube bathroom. The hotel isn't staffed after hours which is a little odd but it didn't make any differnce. The cleaning staff were a little shoddy and we had to ask for our sheets to be changed several times before it happened. Overall... More

I booked this hotel because I saw the pictures on the internet and really like it the architecture and style. But arriving there it was already a problem, as we arrived at 9pm and the hotel reception close at 8pm and only open at 10am next day.. We needed to call a number at the door for someone to open...
