The hotel is beautifully located in the heart of the town, in the Market Square. It has a bar and a restaurant which serves excellent food. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of chi oice. Room was large and very clean. A bit old fashioned decor in the lobby but it gives the hotel a bit of charm.

Stayed here for one night on a business and liked the rooms which were very clean, had a nice balcony, a fridge with FREE Drinks and bathroom and toilets in separate rooms. Breakfast was gold and. I would absolutely recommend the hotel. The location is also nice with a lot of bars and restaurants nearby.

A previous review said it all, noisy and smelly. Oddly pervasive smell of rotten vegetation throughout, but mostly in the lift and corridors. General signs of age throughout for furnishings and fittings. Pleasant staff and restaurant food is good.

I benchmark all bad hotels against this one. Not particularly dirty but old and smelly. No airconditoning. Noisy bar downstairs until 3am. Breakfast cold and poor. Staff are not bad but the property itself is rather poor. Good location for herentals though.

Lovely place to just stop for a drink even. We however stayed the night and also ate in the restaurant. As cyclists touring Belgium we were able to park our bikes in the outside courtyard. Then had a drink out front. Rain brought us inside to a busy and atmospheric bar and then off to restaurant to eat. As they... More

I went to De Zalm Monday Jan 28th and was really impressed. The staff was nice from start to finish, the food was excellent and the bar had a considerable selection of beers, including one you can only buy there (I forget the name). Go here! Best regards Kasper Bang Henriksen

This is a very nice hotel in the centre of Herentals. Nice rooms, fine kitchen and a city garden .... We had our breakfast in the garden.... Nice! Very nice staff. This is a historic centre in a nice area, the Kempen!

Decent breakfast, on street parking.No good if you want quiet - this is in a busy town.Balconies are nice if you smoke with your... More
