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

We stayed in this hotel on a Saturday night. In the adjacent pub has been a disco night lasting in the early Sunday morning. The noise gave vibrations to the whole room. The next morning we learnt from the owner that these sessions occur regularly. Besides this fact our room to the rear seemed somewhat run down. The breakfast at... More

Stayed here for a few nights last December. We had a room overlooking the market square and a very old building which apparently now serves as both an event venue. The room itself was nice, if not a little small. It was clean and bright, but it did not have an alarm clock which was a little inconvenient. The bathroom... More

Considering that Herentals is not a touristic place, the quality of the service provided by this hotel is quite good. Rooms are large and clean, the restaurant has good choice of dishes of really nice quality. Bruxelles moules frites and chocolate mousse are highly reccomended. In the evening you can spend nice time in the pub at the ground floor... More
