My wife and i stayed here for 2 nights. At first i was amazed by the size of the room and thought this would be a good place to give birth to my first dinosaur. The look of the room was nice and contemporary, with a nice bathroom, and the place was clean. The location is close to the train... More

Pros: It is wonderfully located two blocks from the gorgeous Antwerp train station so its extremely convenient for touring Belgium. It is also a 5 minute walk to the Antwerp metro and a lovely 10 to 20 minute walk depending on your speed to the Grote Market and... More

I’ve stayed in the hotel for 2 nights together with 6 colleagues. The location of the hotel is good. The neighborhood is not that nice, but it’s a 2 minute walk from the Central Station. A parking garage is next door. The rooms are not spacious, but enormous. Lots of (unused) room, I’ve stayed in rooms 4 times the price... More

The Antwerp City Center Hotel is ok. They've clearly made an effort to renovate/refurbish the rooms recently and I'm sure it's much better than it used to be. This said, it kind of feels and looks like they didn't quite have enough budget to fully renovate everything and lots of small details weren't on par with the rest. The bathroom,... More

We arrived to Antwerp by train from Brugge in the evening and needed a hotel nearby for the night. The next day was to tour Antwerp and then leave by train to the Brussels Airport. We needed two rooms for three adults and two children. This hotel served that purpose well. THE ACCOMMODATIONS: The hotel rooms were spacious and very... More

My "comfort"room in this hotel was big and bare. A big, relatively comfortable bed and a decent bathroom, but not much else. No bedside table, just a plastic stool. All in, not much comfort in this room. The worst, however, was the noise from the street. There is no sound proofing at all and you can follow what people say... More

The rooms are large and the bathrooms are large. I was surprised at how roomy this place was. Right off of the main pedestrian street from the main train station. The lobby is nothing more than the desk and some vending machines. Don't expect to lounge around a beautiful lobby.

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
