I've stayed at Elzenveld twice before, and every time its charm captivates me anew. It's not a perfect hotel in terms of either amenities or comfort, but the service is almost always more than acceptable, and it's within walking distance of all the business that I have to do. The ghosts in the garden must be the most photographed spot,... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this delightful hotel - it is such a lovely surprise when you walk in off the square and find yourself in a verdant oasis! Great location. Nice old buildings with some very nice features from the past inside - however my room was quite modern and comfortable with a decent bathroom - there was... More

Maybe I was unlucky. I had a very small room and a bathroom even smaller. It was difficult to shower. Elzenveld a conference hotel for large groups not having facilities like a bar or restaurant for individuals or couples staying in Antwerps; the neighbourhood offers pubs (and pubfood). Location however is good. Close to the old inner city. For conferences... More

Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The place is very well located and the price correct. Just outside there is a nice square where the locals meet for food and drinks, all of it quite nice. Since the Elzenveld was a convent just over 40 years ago, this is a special place. Slightly spooky statutes in the back garden give... More

My daughter and I stayed at this nice hotel on May 5th for one night. We found it to be clean, modern, and comfortable. I asked for a room overlooking the gardens when I made my reservation (I read the reviews on here before reserving.). The only downside to this was the mosquitos that came in the open windows. We...

Hotel Residentie Elzenveld - This hotel is in a beautiful and historic building with a great location. Enjoy that and do not expect too much more and all will be fine. The room is small and dated, the breakfast is minimal and the staff is not overly friendly.

Central quiet location, great breakfast. We booked a standard room and while the hotel was almost empty got a very small, almost claustrophobic double room (105). Small bathroom, no place to hang towels and with a very tight place on the toilet bowl. Two heating options : off but very cold or on and very hot … nothing in between.... More

This is a refreshing change from many soulless business type of hotels. One walks through a gate and a secluded garden passing a chapel to the hotel entrance. It is set in an attractive historical building and does have some old-world charm. While the bathroom was modern the furniture in our (spacious) room was slightly worn and the upholstery of... More

I stayed here for one night only, and was glad of it. I had booked a 1 person room, but do not recommend this. The room was very small and basic. Although they say that the rooms are approximately 12m2, 4m2 of that is probably the bathroom leaving a room with just enough room to place a single bed and... More
