The hotel is good. The female receptionist on my arrival was exceptionally hospitable and courteous. Overall the room (superior) was okay but the TV was exceptionally poor with limited channels and bad reception. No hotel guide and a promotion regarding wine was only offered in Dutch and French. Room was clean and minimal, bathroom tiny. Hotel is situated close to the Opera House. Took me less than 10 minutes walk from the Train Station and its convienent for shopping and restuarants. A major tram hub is very close by which can take you to all the main cultural highlights Antwerp has to offer (it's a wonderful city).
Very disappointed with the Hotel breakfast (wow! expensive $$$$). The small amount of salad available was surrounded by hovering flies. The scrambled eggs had not been freshened and looked very unsavoury. No vegetarian substitute was available with the bacon/sausage being served directly next to baked beans and eggs. This could pose some concern for strict vegetarians like myself who are sensitive to cross contamination of nearby meat products. The fruit salad was largely composed of cut Apple with very little else i.e. grapes, melon, orange.
Recommended for short-stay and business.
