I was really delighted staying in this beautiful hotel. It is housed in part of the once oldest hospital of Antwerp dating back to the 13th century. The hotel can be reached through a gate and is very quiet. My room was very large with a a desk, large TV and a corner with a couch and easy chairs. The... More

I stayed here for one night in late August. It was my first time in the city, but there was not a problem because most of touristy places were close from the hotel. In front of the hotel, there is also a nice cafe. Their breakfast is good, and contrary to some reviews by other people, The staffers gave me... More

The building (formerly a monastry), the gardens and grounds are truly beautiful and peaceful. The staff is nice, helpful and always with a positive attitude. The location is convenient, the area lively with plenty of restaurants and stores. The breakfast is good with enough diversity and eggs cooked on demand. But our room was so noisy, so warm and so...

朝食は7時に始まりますが、早めに行くと焼きたての美味しいパンを食べることができます。食堂の2人の従業員がいましたが、tea or coffee?と尋ねてくれて、好きな方を淹れてくれます。何より笑顔が素敵だったアフリカ系の女性servant は忘れることができません。焼きたてのパンは、美味しいチーズと一緒に、何もつけないで食べるのがお勧めです。 I stay at Elzenveld for five nights. 5日間泊まって、学会の会場だったThe University of Antwerp まで歩きました。 チェックアウトする最後の朝、彼女にお礼を言いました。もちろん、会話は全部英語です。ところが、そのとき、彼女は笑ってわたしに te? と聞いてきました。te はスペイン語で tea のことです。そこで、ニコッと笑って Te. と返しました。わたしをSpanish-speaking と思ったのでしょう。そのあと、紅茶を出してくれました。東南アジア系の顔だとよく言われますが、とても楽しい思い出です。

We spent 1 night in this charming hotel (1 adult and 2 teenagers) in a duplex suite. Check-in went very easy. Overall staff was friendly but not warm-hearted. Our room provided lots of space - especially the bathroom was very comfortable. Furniture was a bit worn-out and outdated. WiFi is free and of good quality. We had an excellent long... More

We recently spent 2 nights in Elzenveld, a calm oasis in the middle of a busy city. This residence/conference centre is a very historic building with great charm. The rooms are in the former convent and there are two lovely walled gardens which are soothing after a day of sightseeing. The breakfasts are buffet style and the pastries are baked... More

Hotel Elzenveld is a historic building,a former convent, in a kind of mews near Antwerp's botanic garden. Rooms are simple, bathrooms large (at least mine was). I looked over the front lawn, which has a lovely sculpture, lit up at night. Buffet breakfast served by a pleasant and friendly staff. This hotel was chosen for me for a business meeting,... More

We selected this place to stay for a few days visit to Antwerp on the basis of it's unusual history, closeness to the old town centre (about 20 mins slow stroll) and the peace it offered being quite set back from the main road and overlooking a central garden quadrangle. Our room (111) had very comfy beds, high end linen... More

But the worst is the staff person in the breakfast room who serves you a few milliliters of coffee and then hovers over the machine to make sure you cannot get any more -- seriously? Very disappointing and unwelcoming.
