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.

+ fantastic location (historic center, fashion district, bars and restaurants in walking distance; yet the street is quiet) + breakfast (no buffet, but lovely prepared breakfast) + hotel interior (new, stylish, clean) +/- rooms (quite small, the upper levels offer a nice view over historic center with cathedral, bathroom cleverly incorporated into the room) - bed (boxspringbed, too narrow) -...

There is nothing particularly wrong about this hotel, but I think it provides very low value for money. For less than the amount of money that I spent for a single room there (215 euro per night) I have stayed in truly superb hotels in Brussels and for less than half the money in places with the same level of...

Hotel in good location on the edge of the centre. Contemporary minimalist hotel. Not keen on the concrete ceilings in the bedrooms but other than that liked the simplicity of the room. No air conditioning in our room so it was very hot. Had to leave door open all night for some air so quite noisy from outside. Staff were... More

We came here for a visit to the lovely city of Antwerp to soak up the atmosphere and to do some antique shopping. Got a deal of 148E I say this as for all of the above reasons Banks was near (but not quite) perfect! We parked in the Boro carpark (less full than Grotte Place) and just around the... More

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.
