“Restaurant Scandic Hotel Antwerpen”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Centre about 10 min on tram and only short walk.
was dissaponted as we had booked a groupon offer which included an evening meal, however there seemed to be confusion about this offer and it was not accepted.
We was rushed to order our evening meal and I ended up with a chicken and supposedly bacon sandwich and chips which cost 18 euros!! if the price wasn't enough to put you off then the bacon would as it was black and rock hard. not edible.
was very disappointed that we had to pay for our meal when it was supposed to be free never mind paying for something that was not even edible

it's a good hotel, nice and helpful staff, good bar but which closes pretty early. Nice and comfortable beds.
A very nice thing is that the mirrors in the bathroom have a part which dont get "showers vapours", therefore u can see ur face clearly and dont wait for the mirror dont get clear again.

The only bad thing is that it's pretty eccentric, out of the city center, by a highway, therefore you cannot walk anywhere.

Thanks to the birthday of my wife we got a great update to a suite with jacuzzi.
And in the morning free champagen with breakfast.
The restaurant was full but we got a nice place in the bar.
We go back next year for sure.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

I have stayed at this hotel previously and have always felt able to give it a 4 out of 5 rating. Positives are the spacious and well maintained rooms, the convenient location, the good dining and bar facilities, the spa and on-site parking. The ambience is always good and the staff are friendly.

However, on my latest visit there were some negatives. A kitchen fire had resulted in closure of the dining room. The only catering was a rather minimalist breakfast offering in a conference room. OK, there are plenty of eating places in town but it is a hassle for the foreign visitor to go out. The sauna was open on this occasion - but some of the wooden seating was cracked and splintered. Hopefully these matters will be sorted out by the time of my next visit.

Room Tip: I have been allocated a good room every time I have stayed here.

Dear BobScarlett,

Thank you for your feedback!
I think you have given some great advice and recommendations about Scandic Antwerpen.

We indeed suffered from the kitchen fire, which we needed to resolve quickly via a mobile kitchen and a small menu card until the kitchen will be repared completely. We thank you for your understanding during your stay.

And would love to welcome you again in the near future.

With kind regards,

First the good things - generally clean rooms. Not too expensive.
Not so good things - very small rooms. Bar food is very expensive. I was charged 3 euros for tap water. There was a fire in the hotel when I was there and the facilities including breakfast was reduced to a minimal. However, the hotel did not reduce the room rates

Dear SHM01,

Thank you for your feedback!
I love to read that the rooms where clean, our Housekeeping staff do their best everyday to clean the rooms properly.

We indeed suffered from a fire in the kitchen, which gave us a handicap for serving breakfast at that day. Now we are fully equiped again. We would love to welcome you again in the future to compensate for the inconvenience.

With kind regards,

If you just need to spend the night, you can't really do much wrong here.
Staff are friendly and professional, and I agree that the bar is lively in the evening.
Rooms are rather small and sad in my opinion, with for example, just some small, old style TV's instead of flat screens.
Room service inexistant; explanation: not profitable.
No food in the bar before 6 p.m. either.
Breakfast is o.k with buffet, but the warm part is, well, kept warm for a long time, so a bit dry and I doubt the scrambled eggs are real eggs, but rather rehydrated egg powder.
Breakfast room is rather dark, no linen as far as I remember, and you get everything yourself: coffee, dishes, cups, etc.
I'm afraid there's not being invested in 'well being' beyond the bare necessities.
Sad, because this hotel used to be one of my favourites in the past when in Antwerp.

Room was specious and clean. Good internet connection. Great pub with lovely décor and friendly vibe. Vast choice of food for breakfast. Nice service and handy parking.
The only surprised was the buzzer at the main doors when you came back to hotel late.
Apart of that, hotel was nice.
