Although we were the only couple in the b&b the owner could not find our names..."The key is on the door and the room is on the 3rd floor..." No it wasn't! Our room was the only one that was closed. All the other rooms were with their keys on the door and open. The owner was very 'casual' dressed,... More

Absolutely fantastic. Romantic and sexy. Great location and the proprietor was friendly and accommodating. We will be back to Antwerp without a doubt (great shopping, fashion and food) and won’t stay anywhere else. Plus the best bathtub you will ever have in a hotel.

We were looking for a weekend hide-away in Antwerp and found a very promising place with 'The Black'. The place looks cool but still lacks the special touch that wants to give itself. All is black and white, but that's all there is to say about this 'hotel' which is more a basic pension or hostel. Installed in a nice... More

Incredibly friendly host, great value for price and the combination of black & white is beautiful and classy. The only downside could be finding parking space as its in a popular area in Antwerp. But then again its close to all the trendy spots on "het Zuid". I'd come back.

Very stylish hotel with character. The bath in the middle of the room is such a sexy thing! Everything is black and white in Gothic-kind-of-style. Open the windows and have a hot bath! Downer for me was - no breakfast. But i knew it before booking. Overall i will repeat - hotel with character, not a boring Holiday inn. If... More

When we arrived the reception was very friendly and helped us to accommodate different places on the South that were trendy and hip. A very good recommendation from the gentleman at the reception was Josephines, a superb French Belgian cuisine with live music during the weekends. The rooms were just wonderful and breakfast is just a 5 minute walk, if... More

Went there recently for a romantic weekend with my husband. The hotel has the necessary hardware to make it a real romantic experience. However, service is really bad, you don't feel welcome at all. The lady didn't even bother to stand up to welcome us, show us the room or smile at us...... so don't go there for a warm... More

The pictures are alluring the reality is tiles missing shower heads coming off, cut wires hanging from the wall and lots of other small details that made it like staying in a cheap theatre set as opposed to a luxury small hotel. This more of a b&b as there are no services normally available. Huge mosquito problem on the first... More

This hotel was lovely and we enjoyed our stay. Plenty of beautiful appointments, including Hermes body lotion / soap etc however there are some things to be considered. The bath is placed in the centre of the room (not covered at all, so you are on full display in the middle of the room!), the toilet is also just in... More

Great hotel in the trendy neighbourhoud "Het Zuid". Luxury design rooms in black and white. Only breakfast available. Only 5 or 6 rooms available so you have to book early. 5 minutes walk of the best restaurants and bars in town. The museum MSK is also in the neighbourhoud
