This hotel is very chic and boutiquey. Rooms are nice, quite simple, a little bare for some people's taste maybe? But i think it is meant to be that modern look. Heating in room good, nice little touches like in built speakers for you to listen to variety of pre-programmed music channels.
Bathroom is excellent - great shower!
Our room was up a steep staircase - no lift so dont bring a very heavy bag! Staff friendly and helpful - offered some recommedations for restuarants.
The hotel seemed a little on the expensive side, but I guess that's the cost of having modern, clean rooms these days?
Good location - close to the cathedral/church and shops and cafes. We drove to antwerp and parked our car in an underground car park for about 15 euro a day - very secure and manned by security guard. There is an outdoor covered carpark on other side of road - don't park there - it's very expensive!
We didnt need our car once we got there, everything is easy toget to, we walked everywhere.
Restaurants - try Ginfish next to the hotel, michelin starred chef, no menu, he just cooks depending on the catch that day. Food absolutely delicious and well worth the money just for the experience - he cooks right in front of you!
Also there is an amazing Thai resraurant round the corner from the hotel. doesn't look much from the outside but has the best Thai food outside of Thailand!
