We were in Antwerp for 2 nights for a festival nearby, so didn't need a great room.. luckily. Antwerp City Center Hotel is located on a semi-dingy street off the main road. We felt safe, but it wasn't easy on the eye. Close to train station though, so this was good. The young woman on reception when we arrived was... More

We've stayed her for the fourth time last weekend and it was again a very good experience. Location is around 500 meters from the central Railway station. But also by car easy to reach. You can park the car in the public parking next to the hotel and you can go around by foot. Rooms are spacious, clean good bed... More

We booked a cheap deal through an external bookingsite, and expected an average room, but we were greeted by a big, spacious room. Very central and easy to find. It was very fresh and clean and we heard many hotels having problem with the airconditioning at the rooms because that it was +33 outside, but we didn't notice it at... More

The hotel is very close to central train station and generally it's very centrally located. I love that the room was big and it has coffee facilities. The stuff was polite. Free wifi and modern decoration. All in all it was a very good experience and I definitiley suggest this hotel. The only negative was that the room was too... More

Everything was good! The room for 3-4 people was super comfortable, bed linen clean, pillows, blankets - everything! The location was the best - near the train station and closer to the historical center. It was very good hotel!)

The free parking cuts expenses way down! The parking lot has 3 accesses. The front desk staff is very helpful with directions and suggestions. I usually don't use the electric kettles in hotel rooms, but I needed tea on this trip. I slept very well on their comfortable bed.

Stayed for one night in this hotel with my wife and 14yo daughter. Found it difficult to find the place with satellite navigation as some of the street around the hotel turned out to be closed. Gave a call to reception. They were very nice to help to navigate me to the parking ( Dimond ) next to the hotel.... More

The location can't be beat. The breakfast is very basic and budget; I would just give this a miss and get your own elswhere. The rooms and large and the beds are quite comfortable but admittedly not necessarily four start cleanliness.
