Great location and the complimentary glass of port whilst checking in was a really good start! I like the honesty bar and this has a real family, friendly feel that I really enjoyed. Clean and comfortable rooms of generous size. I look forward to returning.

My husband and I had stayed there twice before and it just was not as nice. They are getting ready to do renovations so maybe it will get back to the way we remember it. However, it just was not as clean as it should have been, and renovation will not change that.

This place is in a great location very central for Antwerp, in a little cobbled street. Parking is available close by. Room was spacious, bed was comfortable, but a smile and a welcome were sadly lacking. I guess when you've checked in hundreds of people you get tired, but this is a pity. Some training in those little extras would... More

spent one night at the beginning of a flower and garden tour with Special Group Tours. After our directionally-challenged guide found the hotel (!) we settled in happily. Helpful staff, good breakfast, comfortable rooms. Would stay there again.

Booked by email same day. Apparently last room. Somewhat difficult to find--just had a map in a guidebook which wasn't detailed enough and it was late--tourist office closed. I took subway from train station. Lovely citizen helped me find it. Check in was unfriendly. Was a smoking room and smelled terrible. The place is old and needs updating. No charm... More

Wonderful Location near the historic district, but not too close - so quiet, calm nights await you in this delicious bed, firm comfortable, soft sheets, and an array of various pillows. Very clean room, spacious with plenty of hanging space, a desk and a large shower with a separate toilet room (great for couples!). Breakfast was wonderful, fresh juices, tea... More

This is a lovely hotel in a quiet pedestrianised street just behind the cathedral. I spent 3 nights there from 11.4.16 in a twin room with a friend. Our 3rd floor room was spacious with a whole windowed wall looking on to the cathedral spire. It had a large sofa, a desk, a bathroom with long traditional bath & a... More

A small boutique city hotel. Not in the Grand Markt as advertised, but in a street very near by. Given that we were given the wrong address it took a while to find. Not good when you're tired and dragging luggage. On a positive note the hotel was reasonably priced , the staff member we saw was helpful,. He recommended... More
