“Excellent Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Perfect location if you are arriving in Antwerp by train! Stayed here for 3 days and upgraded to a room with a balcony facing the city. Great big rooms and heated bathroom floors. Would stay here again based on the professionalism of their staff.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a balcony room facing the city.

Hotel was directly next to the Central train station. Did not find the area “seedy” in the least bit. After an early arrival from the US, I was allowed an early check-in and proceeded to my room located on the 10th floor. Room was of standard size for a European property. Bathroom had enclosed shower and great water pressure. Everything was in working order and spotless. Room has a mini fridge which includes 4 complimentary beverages 1 cola, 1 fanta, 1 sparkling water and 1 still water. Replaced daily. Also coffee/tea making supplies. Housekeeping was thorough and 1 day when I forgot to take off the do not disturb sign, a bag was hung on my door with extra towels, bath mat, toiletries and extra coffee /tea supplies. A nice touch. Beds were comfy enough. No shortage of power outlets as well. Room was on the warm side. Like many European properties, air conditioning was turned off after September, easily rectified by opening window during the day to cool off the room.
Breakfast buffet had a varied selection and very accommodating hours – open until noon on weekends. Lobby bar was friendly and had very reasonable prices. One staff member in particular, Jean-Paul really went out of the way for the guests and was quick to offer a smile. He really made the stay.
Complimentary internet was spotty at best, at least from my room. Using airport express boosted the signal sufficiently to be able to use all of my devices. Was a bit annoying to have to keep logging in with the complimentary code after an hour would pass.
Would definitely stay here again. Great location near many restaurants and pubs. Walking distance to most major attractions, supermarkets and metro. Extremely clean and well maintained property with a pleasant staff.

Good hotel located near the railway staion. Nice and friendly staff, clean and big rooms.
It has good restaraunt and bar. For those who'd like to keep themselves in shape there are also sauna and fitness.

The Lindner is a modern looking hotel right by the Central Train Station, with a very business-like atmosphere. If you are looking to stay close to the historical city center perhaps this is not the right place, even though Antwerp is not a very big city, but it will take around 20 mins to walk there. The area is convenient because of the train station, but otherwise it is not the nicest, some of the closest streets are quite dirty and not the greatest to walk at night.
Otherwise, the hotel has pretty much everything expected for a four star: nice spacious room with free coffee and tea, comfy beds (even though the double beds are indeed two separate beds put together, with separate linens). The decoration could be improved though.
I was feeling a bit uneasy about the room wifi, since some reviews complained about it, but it worked fast and smooth, and of course, for free. If you need to print documents, you can do it in the lobby, asking for a free code.
The highlight of the hotel was the fantastic and varied breakfast, even though the schedules should be a bit more flexible. Ten in the morning can be quite early if you are on holidays. Same thing about the restaurant, which we didn't try because it closed too early for us.
All in all, it is a nice quality hotel, but perhaps I expected a little bit more after reading the other reviews.

Stayed for just one night in the Lindner, we were upgraded from a standard room to a first class ro which had a balcony overlooking the central station. The room was large and clean and the free mini bar (soft drinks and water only) was a nice touch along with the Nespresso machine. We had breakfast in the hotel which was a good buffet of cereals, fruit, yogurt, meat, cheese, pancakes, waffles, bacon and egg. Staff were generally friendly and helpful, especially reception staff who lent me a plug adapter when I realised is forgotten mine! Some of the restaurant staff did seem a bit surly though. Location was very central but I was a bit wary walking around Central Station late at night. Despite the hotels close proximity to such a big and busy station we weren't disturbed by any noise from trains.

We have just spent 3 nights in this modern hotel. The rooms are an excellent size, with a separate shower box which is great.
Beds were comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding.
The staff were fantastic, very attentative at all times.
The location is great right next to the railway station. A good walk into the city.

Would recommend.
