This city centre hotel is perhaps overpriced for the facilities available. No air-conditioning, limited reception facility, restaurant was a combined bar/restaurant/breakfast room. BUT - it is centrally located and has a car park literally next door. Plenty of places to explore so the hotel is really a bed for the night - no more so don't expect any frills or... More

Hotel National is quite acceptable for a short stay in a good location, but it totally lacks personality and charm. I chose it simply as it was reasonably priced and close to my friend's house and central Antwerp. My room was large (by European standards), the bed comfortable and the bathroom small, but the furnishings and decor was very tired.... More

Hotel National is located really good and the reception downstairs has a really nice atmosphere. Staff was very nice too and the breakfast is free and good. The rooms have really thin walls though so we could hear our neighbours very well, aaaargh! Our room was not really clean and was quite timewarp-ish. Would never stay here again.

Good hotel for a short stay because it's very well located, in the center of Antwerp, near the shopping area, the restaurants so no car needed for a city trip kind of stay. Clean rooms and bathrooms .

We booked this hotel because its central location but we didn't expect to sleep above a night club! The room was ok although the radiator wasn't working, the TV wouldn't show any pictures and you don't get any bedside tables. We came back to the National at 22:30 to find that the hotel's restaurant had been transformed into a night... More

Hotel National has character and a style that I enjoyed. The room was big, but basic (no set of drawers), however, it was clean. The bathroom was a little small, and the elevator was a bit creepy. The location is good, everything is in walking distance that you'd want to see. It was a little far to the Rubens House... More

Main reason for choosing this hotel was the next door car park as well as it's location. Car park at roof level has access from hotel making loading/unloading car easy, however charge is €18 for 24 hrs. Apart from the dark red corridors the room was spacious and clean. The windows could not be opened. The staff were ok, not... More

Very unfriendly management, close to being violent, impatient, and not recommend for a stay, whatever the price is. God forbid you have a problem, you should be aware of being treated without respect, nor helpful, and dictative.
