The location is good, the room was large enough, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was included and very good. That part was fine. What made it a difficult stay is that there was no plug in the bathroom, the pillows were pretty bad, the hairdryer was useless, and the light in the room was so awful that there was no possibility of reading after dark. Since we went in winter, it was dark by 4:30 and still dark at 8:30 in the morning. In fact, I tried to iron a pair of slacks and the ironing board is attached to a wall. I had to run in the bathroom to use its light, look for the wrinkles, come out, press the pants blindly, run back in the bathroom, look for more wrinkles..... it got old. I have above the shoulder hair, but the hairdryer was old and very weak and took a good 20 minutes to dry. Although those seem like petty annoyances, they were a pain to deal with when we were pressed for time; trying to read whether for business or pleasure was difficult - easy fixes perhaps, but quite annoying for the 3 nights we were there. For those reasons, I just wouldn't be able to recommend this hotel. I think there are better options in Antwerp.
