Great roomy shower. Bed very compfy. No breakfast included but there were many spots closeby to have breakfast.

Stayed in one of the suites at the Banks hotel the weekend before Christmas. Although reviews for the normal rooms tend to be disappointing, the suites at this hotel are definitely worth it. The suites are corner rooms with a lot of windows and a big bed, plus a seating area and a gas-fireplace - very cosy. The bathroom is... More

The first impression of the Banks is quite good: the place looks new, trendy, they welcome you with a glass of cava and point out the snacks and drinks on the house. The lounge area looks nice and welcoming with a fireplace and designy furniture. BUT. Here follows quite a list of cons that slowly but surely brought down our... More

I heard good things about this hotel but it was not a satisfying experience. The welcome part failed hard already, the receptionist (woman) did not want to check me in because I refused to give my credit card for the following reason: this room was booked on my partner's credit card (company) and whilst he was still on his way...

Probably 3 1/2 stars really. Room is tiny but functional enough. They have the peculiar choice of glass door toilet which isn't ideal for anyone sharing. However snacks and drinks in the big and comfortable chill out area gives this a nice touch. Also have outside area which is a luxury when you are in the heart of Antwerp.

We paid a smashing Euro 130,-- (nov 2012) for a room in this so called 4-star hotel. That is without breakfast. But what is 4 stars on this? The reception is closed (!) after 20:30 hours (yes, the first four-star hotel without 24-hour service). There is no minibar in the room. Holes of 1cm in the bedding. All towels were... More

We booked this hotel for June but we had to cancel. We wrote to them two days in advance and they forfeit the entire price (i.e. we had to pay even if we never go). They said that we cancelled too late and they referred to a confirmation email that we had never received. Even according to the policy that... More

We went back to this well situated hotel, close to the historic heart of the city and shops. The hotel is also close to a lot of restaurants (any type pf cuisine and all possible prices). We had a room without a view (not on the street side), the advantage is that you are not disturbed by the street noise... More

I booked two nights in the Junior Suite of Banks hotel for a weekend out with my girlfriend. We were welcomed with a glass of cava by the very friendly gentleman at the reception. Our room was beautiful, clean, very spacious and comfortable. The bed and bedlinnen in particular, were exceptional! The room was very bright because of the three... More
