“Good place to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

A three days Antwerp was our goal to learn the city. And the Theater hotel is a good location to start. We had a good time in this hotel. At first the hotel looks a bit old from the outside. But inside it is a nice hotel, good breakfast, nice rooms. Although you can see it is not brand new. The staff was helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: Beds are a bit hard in Belgium, so we asked for help and they were helpful.

The location is an added value since you can walk your way around the center quite well. Room was big but the mattresses of the bed were unconfortable. At the same time the pillow supplied were absolutely horrible - there seems to be a problem in Belgium with the shape of the pillows... Regular breakfast.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The rooms are quite large and well equipped. The service is great. Also, the hotel is not far from the Central Station, so if you are traveling by train, you can easily have a walk through the town centre towards the hotel.

Pay attention to this: when you make your reservation, breakfast is normally not included, and quite expensive! We got it included in our reservation, otherwise you will pay about €20,- per person.

Situated in a great area for shopping and markets, this hotel was ideal for me as I was working in the theatre next door and could get from the theatre to the hotel without setting foot outside.

Sadly the advantage stopped there though. Everything about the place is a little grubby and care-worn - although I stress it was clean. It had just seen better days.

Elevators a bit rickety and the rooms, although large, were very definitely on the budget side of the spectrum.

Like I say, very convenient for shopping and the theatre but give it a miss if you like luxury.

Parked next door in a town car park with discount although when we left no one in attendance after waiting far too long, not the hotel fault.
We arrived early and greeted by a happy lady and given the keys immediately to a bright clean ample room with comfy chairs and a table.
The hotel is very central and did not use the facilities of the hotel so in fairness can only comment of our own room which was more than adequate for a city break.
Bath, shower clean large bed, tea coffee, tv and an excellent quiet and comfortable nights sleep..

Central hotel, close to Antwerp centrum.
Pay attention during booking : breakfast if is not included could be expensive (I paid 20 €)
If you make reservation with booking also for friends or colleagues you pay for all with book date and is not possible to pay separated (probably due to good price they make)
Room good
Wi Fi available
Parking is on payment.

Right in the city center; Ideal sleepover after an evening with friends.
Plenty of good bars and restaurants at walking distance, in the middle between the central station and the cathedral. There is a nice small boutique shoppingcenter near the hotel as well.
Friendly bartender and helpful staff.
Interior a little dated, but ok and worth its money.
