“Not so good as the other Mercure hotels we visited”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We chose the Mecure Opera Antwerp for its location. We have stayed in Mercure hotels all over Europe and have always found it to have a good price-quality level. The receptionist was very kind and helpful when we checked in, she even gave us a (very good and affordable) address for breakfast, as our reservation was room only. The room was spacious, the bed wonderful. The bathroom however was not very clean: the bath tap clearly needed a good scrub. On the second morning we had breakfast in the hotel and we were isappointed: this was very different than the other elaborate breakfasts we had in other hotels: staff was not friendly, not attentive, the eggs were cold, several kinds of bread were gone and not filled up again... Such a pity. But we will try again Mercure on other occasions, but not in Antwerp.

The best thing about this hotel is its location. Our room was certainly not large - the bathroom door was a sliding door that swung freely without a bottom track. The bathtub had rusty edges, and was very slippery when showering, without any rubber mat available. Overall, the room was very basic and tired. My wife phoned to ask for an Iron and ironing board and was told she could come to the lobby and pick it up, i.e. carry it up to the room. We had been travelling some time so dropped off some laundry - surprised when it had not been returned on the second day, I checked with the front desk only to find that I was expected to pick it up. Overall, the rooms, if ours was anything to go by, need a serious refurbish, and the hotel needs more staff.

Went here for a long weekend on 20th Sept 2013 for my husbands birthday, we got a taxi from Antwerp airport which was 15 euros. The staff at the hotel are the most informative I have come across, the guy on reception gave us a guide and told us the best places to eat. There is a Argentinian Steak house (ask at reception for directions) within walking distance which is just the best, truthfully I had chicken and was not disappointing but my husband had steak and it was delicious and so was the chips ect. Went to the old part of town which was lovely and quaint and had a few beers while watching people on the flee market.
Make sure you have a beer in the square and watch the world go by for an hour.
Its not the cheapest place but definitely worth going for a weekend.
If your going from Antwerp airport back home dont go to the airport 2 hours before because there is no need, 1 hour is quite suffice.

Well equipped, well located, clean and comfortable. Feels much like a business hotel really but ideally located for transport and attractions on a city break. Lots of cafés and bars near by so don't pay the breakfast premium.

Lovely room! Very helpful front desk staff. Recommended a great restaurant, and accommodated us for an early breakfast prior to catching a train. Hotel easy walking distance from train station and old city sites.

Well, position is probably the best feature, 10-15 minutes walking from the Cathedral.
The hotel is 100% "average": whenever there is something good, there is also something to improve.
The room I had was 601, sixth floor, very large; but, it needs definitely to be refurbished, both in furnishing and fittings (shower hose in the bathroom!).
And, the elevator reaches fifth floor only, then stairs!
As for the breakfast, finally a glass of juice larger than a sip and real eggs, not foam; but bacon and eggs are cold, and the coffee too.
A mention danish pastries: fresh and a lot of cream.
