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.

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.

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.
