“A nice business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

The Ramada Plaza is a nice hotel located a bit away from the city center of Antwerp. The hotel is quite modern and it is located in an area with loads of university buildings and concert venues. The hotel is a quite modern glass building situated on the Desguinlei.

When you enter the large hall you are met by a huge reception desk in a rather dark and modern lay-out. I was given a nice room on the second floor. The room was nice and large with a king size bed. The walls were colorful but still kept in calm colors. The windows was facing the forrest behind the hotel.

There was a table and a couple of chairs in front of the window and there was a desk with a flat screen. The wi-fi worked perfectly and it was a perfect room for a business stay as well. The bathroom was nice and modern with black tiles and loads of glass and mirrors.

The parking was full when I arrived but I could park on the road that lead to the basement free of charge. The same thing happened the last time I stayed at the hotel.

Dear Sir, Madam,
Thank you very much for your encouraging feedback you have given from your recent stay in Ramada Plaza Antwerp. Overal the past years, we had renovating and upgrading our rooms and features like the free WI-FI internet< Thanks to those improvements, we feel that guests who select our hotel for their stay, either for business purposes or leisure purposes, are more at home then before. We had chosen colour in our rooms, but without making it too uncomfortable for our guests. We sincerely hope to welcome you more often when your business trips guide you to Antwerpen.
Kind regards

again stayed midweek for a couple of nights

really nice big rooms and such comfortable big beds, unlike the crown plaza,

ate in restaurant bar area food was really good with a good choice on the menu, staff were very polite and friendly, prices for the food and drink were really good too.

the only down fall with the room was the bathroom needs a bit of an upgrade but still very clean

would book this hotel over the crown plaza due to size of beds and rooms, plus the stafff were fantastic help.

Dear Sir, Madam,
Regular returning guests are a great treasure for each hotel, so also for us at Ramada Plaza Antwerp. This way we can measure if what we believe in and we stand for, is the right way to go.
On regular occassions we change the menues in our brasserie, so that our guests can be surprised to try and experience a nice dish to their liking, at, what we believe reasonable prices.
The rooms and comfortable beds are the result of many investments over the past years.
Our staff tries all throughout the year to make each guest feel at home to only get the best and most out or stay.
We hope to welcome you again soon in Antwerpen.
Kind regards

I've stayed here a few times due to it's proximity to the De Singel concert hall. This is a perfectly adequate hotel. The beds are comfy. The choice is pillows is welcome! The bathrooms well equipped and include a bath.

I also needed to eat a meal quickly and it was served kindly by the nice staff - and fast. It was reasonably priced too.

The breakfast is very good.

This is a nice hotel. I notice a lot of comments on the hotel requiring refurbishment. I'm not sure why. Everything works perfectly well. You'll be comfortable. Just because things look a little dated (which in this case, I would say applies only to the restaurant) doesn't make it bad.

Room Tip: At the back of the hotel it's silent.

A great (and big) hotel with a dynamic and friendly team. Great rooms, good food and a lovely bar.
There is even a night club in the basement.
Plenty of parking space underground. What else can you ask for.

Hotel, located closely to the ringroad of Antwerp. Staff is helpful and efficiently handled the check-in for a two-night stay.
Although the hotel lobby looks fine the rooms itself still suffer from the eighties or nineties style decorating. Nothing has changed here the last 5 years that I have visited this hotel. My company books my accommodation here because of the nearby Antwerp Expo. I wish I could stay somewhere else...
From the first step into my room I had to walk on some type of carpet that makes your 10 kilo suitcase feel like you have to drag a 1,000 kilos on sand. And by the looks of it, the carpet could tell you a thousand stories of what it has experienced and absorbed the last couple of years. It's the kind of carpet you were glad to have packed your flipflops to walk safely in your room without picking up any strange foot diseases...
Bathroom itself has all the basic facilities, but has been designed by a incompetent architect. The sink looks like taken from a design catalogue but the faucet is placed just 7 centimeters above the bottom of the sink. No way you can wash your hands properly. Moreover, stains on the bathroom walls showed previous use of the room but you don't want to know what happened.
Parking your car in the garage could be tricky as there's not enough space to accommodate all hotel guests' cars.
Breakfast buffet is nothing special. I wonder what would happen if the personnel would change their little wet towels every now and then when cleaning the tables. I really had to pull my coffee mug from the table because it was stuck on the table.
Price per night in this hotel made you think you were staying in a cosmopolitan area. Paying more than EUR 200 per night is EXCESSIVE!!!, especially considering the above. Antwerp isn't New York or Moscow!

Room Tip: A useful tip: book your accommodation elsewhere and save money!

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to comment on our hotel following your recent stay.

Please accept my sincere apologies for our failure to live up to your expectations in respect of bedroom carpets and bathroom fit outs.

Our Housekeeper and I are at a loss to understand the difficulties that you have experienced with the carpet as it is a hotel specification carpet and is systematically shampooed and hovered within accepted hotel industry schedules. All our bathrooms were upgraded over the past 2 years and as you say we are happy with our new sinks, and our taps appear to us, to be accessible to hands being placed under them.
I will review our breakfast table cleaning as it would be completely unacceptable to us to have unhygienic work practises.
Normally our rates are much lower than the price that you have quoted. Indeed we attempt and succeed on most occasions to give the best value in our area.
I am pleased to advise that we have already placed an order for new lobby furniture which we expect to arrive soon, which I trust will improve the experience for all our guests.
I am also delighted to hear the good feedback that you have given on our team who work so hard to deliver excellent guest care.
Finally I hope it won’t be long before you come to stay with us again, on which occasion, please contact me directly in order that I can look after all the arrangements personally

Kind regards
Caroline Lahou

The hotel is very nice and comfortable. The rooms are big and clean and you can even choose for a soft or hard pillow! Breakfast is also very good and there is also a sauna and fitness area. I would definitely stay again in this hotel.
