Banks hotel is in a great location and has several positive aspects about it such as smart decor, comfortable beds and the nice touch of free drinks and nibbles in the late afternoon. But that's about it. If you are a business traveller and require things such as: breakfast before 8 am (!), a printed out receipt when you check... More

Stopped off in Antwerp on a whim, as we were passing by, booked this hotel online. Good location near the old town. Unique offer which includes 'Tapas & Drinks' which was a nice touch. A bottle of Cava abs a table full of snacks later and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel :-)

Room was a little small but adequate. Didn't like that there was no safe in the room, but overall the building was safe, with security and cards for access at night both outside the hotel, and for the lift inside the hotel. Enjoyed the wine and tapas after 6 in the garden area at no additional charge as a nice... More

Visited during Your de France so the hotel was quite busy. It's one of the new concept hotels you find more and more in Europe. The rooms are rather small so it's not where you spend much time. The breakfast set-up was at times a little caotic since they arrange separate trays for each person so it took some time.... More

The hotel was on a nice location. Near the old city. Nice that we could make a cup of coffee/tea in our room. The beds were good but not very wide. The towels are big and clean. The Wifi is good and free in the hotel. The room was little, a special bathroom with the sink in the room. No... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the time taken to leave us your review and we are happy to read you enjoyed your stay in Banks. Regarding the mosquitoes we are always on top of this challenge in Antwerp, as the city has to deal with many of them. We installed mosquito screens in the rooms to prevent them from entering...

Didn't really consider Antwerp as a weekend break, we went for a concert, but fell in love with the place. Beautiful architecture, easy to get around and far much to see and do for the time we had. Chose Banks quite late so limited options but like Antwerp it was a great find. It couldn't be better located for the... More

I was in Belgium for a Business trip and had my work trip extended. I wanted to stay near the old city and so finalized this at the last minute, without looking at any reviews or checking online. First off, the hotel is extremely overpriced for the services it offers. I paid over 819 Euros for a week's stay and... More

Dear Mrs. Pavneet, Thank you for the time taken to share your experience. For us it is difficult to respond to, as you booked your room when you personally checked-out Banks before you made your reservation. The roomrate, terms & conditions, etc. were all explained upfront and agreed by you when you booked your room in a period with a... More

Nice hotel near groenplaats. My room was pretty basic. The lobby area is funky with cool muzak and warholesque artwork. Good location for the old town. Handy for city bikes and local cafés. Good value but the accommodation was a little disappointing - mine was a small room even though I opted for an executive double.

Although you found the size of the room small we hope you enjoyed our comfortable Auping boxspring beds (most of them 2.10 meters long) with a real duvet... More

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend trip to Antwerp. The only reason I do not rate it terrible is for the location. Perfectly located for visiting the city. I wonder how this hotel got classified 4 stars. There is not 24 hours reception, it closes at 8.30 pm. Payment has to be done in advance when you check... More

Very nice. Breakfast and evening drinks included. Hotel was spotless. Location is perfect, two minutes from Groenplaats. Rooms are basic modern but nicely done at the same time. Staff very friendly. Car parks are within a two minute walk as well. Would definitely look to stay again.
