Trusting a couple of positive reviews on this hotel, my boyfriend and I had decided to book a room for 3 nights. Huge mistake!
I quote from the website of this hotel (History section): 'After a complete renovation and decoration "Hotel Diamond Princess" opened its doors'. Well, when we opened the door of the cabin we were given, we found a cubicle with hardly enough space to walk around the bed, very cheap furniture, a repellent bathroom with cement floor (no shower desk, just a plastic curtain), dirty carpet and a useless TV.
No other rooms were free that evening; the following day we were shown another identical one, and a second one which was a bit bigger, and had tiles in the bathroom (wow!). We took it. However, it turned out that this second room was on the same side of the disco bar of the ship, so until early morning we could 'enjoy' the music and the steps of people going up and down the iron stairs next to the room. The room was of course equipped with useless TV, and in the bathroom we found nicely folded the dirtiest towels I've seen in a hotel. All this, for the nice price of 82 euros a night for a double room.
Yes, the location of this hotel boat is good, very close to the historical center of Antwerp, and the breakfast is quite rich, but, after all, I would not suggest it for a 'romantic stay in Antwerp', to end this review with another (misleading) quotation for their hotel website.
