“Great surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We booked a cheap deal through an external bookingsite, and expected an average room, but we were greeted by a big, spacious room. Very central and easy to find.
It was very fresh and clean and we heard many hotels having problem with the airconditioning at the rooms because that it was +33 outside, but we didn't notice it at all at this hotel.
The breakfast was basic, but since it was included we didn't mind.

The hotel is very close to central train station and generally it's very centrally located. I love that the room was big and it has coffee facilities. The stuff was polite. Free wifi and modern decoration.
All in all it was a very good experience and I definitiley suggest this hotel. The only negative was that the room was too hot, but there is an A/C!.

Everything was good!
The room for 3-4 people was super comfortable, bed linen clean, pillows, blankets - everything!
The location was the best - near the train station and closer to the historical center.
It was very good hotel!)

Room Tip: Room fo 3-4 people!)

The free parking cuts expenses way down! The parking lot has 3 accesses. The front desk staff is very helpful with directions and suggestions. I usually don't use the electric kettles in hotel rooms, but I needed tea on this trip. I slept very well on their comfortable bed.

Stayed for one night in this hotel with my wife and 14yo daughter. Found it difficult to find the place with satellite navigation as some of the street around the hotel turned out to be closed. Gave a call to reception. They were very nice to help to navigate me to the parking ( Dimond ) next to the hotel. Arrived around 13:30. We were asked to wait till 15:00. The hotel seamed a bit tired and worn out. I came to the breakfast room and did not find it very fresh, but smelly. That is why decided not to take breakfast. Cafes around are available. The room was quite spacious, but facing the street. Sound isolation was not very good. We were woken up by early cars. wifi was working well. I would say that the main advantage of the hotel is central location, not far from the railway station and ZOO, in the middle of the diamond area. Overall impression - average, nothing special.

Room Tip: 313 is facing the street. otherwise is good for 3 people

The location can't be beat. The breakfast is very basic and budget; I would just give this a miss and get your own elswhere. The rooms and large and the beds are quite comfortable but admittedly not necessarily four start cleanliness. Antwerp at times can be a bit smelly as well so I can imagine in warmer weather that the areas outside may not be that pleasant. It wasn't that cheap either but I don't think Antwerp is a cheap city.

Our room was near the lifts so could be a bit noisy depending on people traffic outside of our room.
