“characterful modern hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We stayed for two nights on our recent trip to Antwerp. It is located away from the city centre but close to the interesting Zurenborg area and two other residential areas with a good selection of bars and restaurants nearby. Town was a shortish walk or quick tram ride away so it didn't feel too far out. The staff were all very friendly and, whilst I agree with other reviewers that some of rooms and common areas look tired, for the price we paid it offered excellent value especially with the free hot drinks in the lobby and water in the minibar.

Room Tip: It is on a busy road so you may get disturbed by traffic if you sleep at the front.

We stayed here for one night, and I am glad we didn't stay longer.
The hotel is quite funky, but even though it is fairly new it looks quite old in places. In our room (310) there were water stains down the walls, both by the bed and by the interconnecting door. Don't know where it came from, but it didn't look good. The walls were also stained and quite a lot of the walls had chipped paint.
The room is extremely noisy at night as it was facing the front of the building. It felt like we were sleeping on a motorway!
The "free" minibar consisted of one small beer, one small fizzy orange and 4 small bottles of water - so don't think you get wine and spirits in it!
The shower is really annoying as you have no room to move as it has been placed at the narrow bit of the bath and not at the end, but it was powerful which was a plus.
If it wasn't for the brilliant deal we got on the price we would have stayed elsewhere, and I honestly don't think we will be returning as it just isn't worth more than what we paid and that sort of deal is not a one you come across very often.

Room Tip: Stay at the back of the hotel if you want to sleep!

Was there for 4 nights. Everything was fine and design of the property is awesome! The only problem for us was that the lobby bar is closed after midnight already.

I recently come back from a three night stay at the St Plantin with my girlfriend. The hotel is situated just outside the city centre on an incredibly unattractive main road! It is a 15 minute walk from Central Station and a to get into the historic city centre it is best to get a tram (last one back to the hotel is 12.30!). Whilst this could put a lot of people off the hotel it is a 5 minute walk away from the beautiful area of Zurenborg which has some cracking restaurants.

The hotel itself is incredibly funky. The reception area is decked out in black marble and has free hot drinks 24 hours a day and little croissants for free in the mornings, nice touch. Our check in was efficient if not overly friendly and we were shown to our room on the third floor. The rooms themselves are lovely, decorated to a high standard and with an immensely comfortable King Size bed. I found the bathrooms incredibly functionable and the pressure of the shower was awesome. A big deal was made about the free mini bar in the room. Whilst it sounds a dream the mini bar consisted of a beer (sad considering they knew two of us were in the room), a bottle of orange and two bottles of water.

The real reason the Sir Plantin only receives a 3/5 is due to the noise of the traffic. Our first night was horribly interrupted by trucks hurtling past and people shouting outside the hotel. When we brought this to the attention of the reception they brusquely said that they were fully booked and would see if they could move us the day after. I'm sure if we were prepared to pay the extra 20 euros for an upgraded room we could have moved! They eventually moved us after a sleepless night which soured our stay a little.

Some decent double glazing away from a brilliant find.

Room Tip: Stay at the back!

Dear,

Many thanks for staying at the Sir Plantin. I'm pleased you were impressed with the 'look & feel' of our hotel. Our Plus Rooms (an upgrade cost only 20 € per night, whilst these rooms are offering a larger bathroom, additional guest supplies, iPad/iPhone/iPod docking station + VIP gift) are indeed located on the back of the hotel, but at the day of request all rooms on the back, thus including our Plus Rooms were all fully booked.

I look forward to welcoming you again in the not so distant future.

Always at your service !

Kind regards,

Wim Van Respaille - General Manager

Sir Plantin hotel is excellent. The rooms are very contempary, funky and instyle and yet very cosy. Our kingsize bed was heavenly. Great bathroom. Some people say that the room are small, but I think that they contained everything you need. We had a room at the backside of the hotel so we did not have any traffic disturbance. A real winner.

Just outside the City of Antwerp you find in Antwerp/Borgerhout this Cool Belgica Hotel.
It is an sophisticated design hotel, dedicated to you, friendly and warm.
In the back the well furnished rooms are quiet. So after a exciting day in the city relax in the wye bed. You can park your car in the backstreets for not more than three and a half euro.
Youmay have an excellent (flemish) dinner (better than in the citycenter) not far from the hotel in Van Loock (Dageraadsplaats). Watch the pics of www.klaartjelambrechts.com at the wall. Don't miss MAS (Museum aan de Stroom), new famous archtitectual spot. Don't miss the Museum of Photography, excellent collection and exhibitions.
Don't forget to walk the fashion design area (Dries van Noten, Ann de Meulemeester and others.

Room Tip: Most quiet at the backside. If you love buzz streetview have a frontroom.

My husband and I stayed here in March of last year on a romantic week away. The hotel is in a nice location and is close to some great restaurants and a grocery store. The hotel itself is very nicely decorated and that added to our getaway to Antwerp. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. I can not comment on the breakfast because we were never awake early enough to get it. I will stay here again when I return to Antwerp.
