1.The decoration of the room 2.The big size of the room which looked to the street 3.42'' lcd tv 4.The location is perfect near the station and many coffee-bars near 5.The breakfast was brilliant. The negative is there is no parking so you have to pay 18 euro per day to the nearest parking.

Dear Tolis, Thank you for your great review! For the guest that arrive with a car that is lower than 1m90, there is a public carpark next door which, with the discount we can offer, only cost € 13,50 per 24 hours. Taller vehicles such as yours can indeed pose a problem in city centers. Alteratively, there is free outside... More

The hotel is located five minutes of walking from the railway station, in the area with jewelry shops. The staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious, clean, and with large windows. They provide free internet and it works well. As the name clearly says, it's in the city center, but not necessarily exactly in the most touristic area. However, it's... More

Well situated, at walking distance from the city centre. Very large and clean rooms with all the comfort you need. Excellent breakfast buffet. Very helpful and friendly people at the reception. WiFi ok. Beds a bit soft but that's a personal matter. Recommended!

The hotel is very near to the city center and railway station. Nice rooms and clean, we haven't used breakfast in the hotel. Parking is next to the hotel and not expensive. Near to the hotel you have bars and restaurants.

The Antwerp City Hotel doesn’t have much of a street presence, just a door in what looks like a parking garage. Inside, the décor looks like it is trying a little too hard to be upscale, with lots of hot pink and black, plus a stuffed (one hopes, fake) gorilla. However, the staff was helpful and well organized. We got... More
