“Basic Needs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

The hotel was very basic, its a small hotel with narrow stairs and corridors. The toilets are shared but you do have a sink in your room.
The rooms themselves are in the old style which I actually liked and were clean.
The location was perfect, right next to the cathedral and a short walk from the Grote Market..but a good 20 minuet walk to the new city of Antwerp
It was good value for money because of its very convenient location

I made plans for a business trip to Antwerp and wanted to avoid the usual "international franchises" that my company typically accommodates us in. I found hotel Postiljon from a Google Maps search of the area as I needed to be in walking distance to my place of work.

I stayed at Hotel Postiljon at the end of February early March. The staff made me feel welcome from the outset, even to the point where they reorganised rooms to ensure that my stay was as comfortable as it could possibly be, although the great level of service didn’t just end at the reception. A leak in my luggage resulted in sticky clothes, (which they washed) and a button on my jacket almost detached itself (which they mended), much to my gratitude (and surprise!).

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Antwerp, you couldn’t go far wrong with staying at the Postiljon. I stayed in room 5 (I think) which was at the back of the hotel. You lose the views of the Kathedral, but it’s very quiet, clean and comfortable.

The only letdown is that the room's beverage selection could be better provided / organised and why have a Nespresso machine in the room, but not provide Nespresso pods? (Hence the room service score).

All said and done, a cracking little flemish hotel!

Room Tip: Room 5, first floor at the back of the hotel. Double bed, wardrobe and ensuite.

The Postiljon is a quaint little spot with a prime location right in the middle of Antwerp, only a 20 minute walk from the train station. The cathedral across the street may be considered a negative if you are planning to sleep late (bell alert in the early morning!), as has been noted in previous reviews. travelling in a group of 2 couples we went for the family room which features a double and two single beds, a doorless bathroom and a shower cubicle, toilet is in the hallway. the room was clean and convenient, so was the price - perfect for a mini break when all you want to do is exploring the town anyway. also the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

A simple, clean and pleasant hotel next to the cathedral. The person at the desk was friendly and helpful. The room was small but sufficient and clean.
I brought ear plugs in case the bells of the cathedral would keep me awake but I slept like a log.

Nicely located, small clean room, no toilet door or curtain. Would have like to have light in the hallway always on as it can get very dark and makes it difficult specially if you're carrying a heavy luggage. Overall nice stay and recommended.

The Hotel Postiljon Antwerpen (2 stars) is a in a great location in the center of Antwerp. It is only one block the from the Town Hall, Guild Halls, and next to the large Cathedral. Do not plan on sleeping much during the day; the bells are quite loud and persistent... fortunately, they do not ring at night. The breakfast was included and was a good start on the day. The room was on the third floor; no elevator. No air conditioning nor fan but the room had cross ventilation when the windows were open. For the next visit I will look for other options such as the Radisson Blu next to the Central Train Station which has more stars and a nice workout and pool facility.
