Recently I made a booking in this hotel and I wanted to change the date because of personal circumstances, and it was a big surprise to hear this was not possible because the booking is made trough the internet! Yes this is booked by the internet but directly trough the own website of the hotel! I informed the hotel that... More

Paying over €200 for a room (supposed to be executive room) is way too much. Bathroom only separated thru glass panels, no bath. Sink/washbowl not in bathroom, logic since this was only 2-3 m2. The only little compensation was the location of the hotel and friendly personnel. For the industrial concrete rooms a rate of around €130 would be more... More

Nice hotel, smal rooms though, and service is hard to find. Hope for the management hotel is doing a great job so they do not need to focus on service. We made a mistake with the booking, phoned them from abroad within 5 minutes, and they can not help. That is not completely true, they came with 1 suggestion, which... More

My first time in Antwerp and, arriving at around 5.00 pm discovered that free drinks ands snacks were available for several hours, something rarely seen! The rooms are vey modern but everything works with very good blackout curtains. There was no noise from outside despite being in the middle of this busy city. I would happily stay again.

I spent 1 night on a business trip.Cozy and modern boutique hotel, very centrally located. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Room quite small and "cold", the resin floor with no slippers is not a good idea in winter, Nice shower, very slow internet (room 305), ok breakfast. I would probably go back again but needs some improvements.

We stayed here for a night out in Antwerp with friends. The rooms were clean, but very small (too small for the price). The walls of the bathroom (including the toilet) are made of glass, so there is no privacy if you are with more than one person. They offer free drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and bites at a certain... More

The hotel is located very central. We liked the cava and tapas offered by the hotel. Our room was clean but the minimalist design has been taken a bit too far I think. Room felt cold and with the concrete and lack of design felt a bit unfinished (something on the wall would have completed it). The bed was very... More

Stayed here on business in April 2014. Good central location. Room modern, clean and bright. Breakfast was very good, a plate was provided including fruit, bread, egg, meats, yoghurt and cereal together with coffee and fruit juice. Reception staff professional and helpful.

Antwerpen is a beautiful city, and thanks to Hotel Banks we could really appreciate it. Situated in the city center near the Fashion Museum it's the perfect spot to explore the beauty of the old Antwerpen and to make some good shopping. We'll be back soon

We had a 2 night stay at Hotel Banks, it was the Xmas market opening weekend with lots of life, performance, music and people in the city ... great. The hotel was a cosy little place for the night, small but practical and modern architecture and right in the middle of the hot spots in Antwerp. Fashion, Bars, Restaurants and... More
