“Great location - clean & comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

Great central location one block 'off the Meir (pedestrian shopping mall/street)
Beautiful decor and although room was very small, was a great 'value' based on the price. Bed was great as was the shower! Would highly recommend it as a lower priced hotel. Breakfast 'pricey' so we didn't pay the 14 euro.

You know what you are booking when you book an IBIS hotel, a standard, basic and clean accommodation, no frills but with all you need in place. And this is why I booked my 3 nights in Antwerp for business travel at the end of October. I wanted to make sure I knew what to expect and what I would find, and I was not wrong. Located very closely to the historic cathedral area, 5-10 minute walk, the hotel is just a drop away from the main shopping street, the Meirstraat and in the market square where a large, all-day market, focusing mainly on food, takes place every Saturday. The Central station is also nearby, with just a 15 minute walk, or a 6 euro ride by taxi.

Rooms are clean, breakfast is fine and with healthy options. Bathrooms are small, like in most IBIS hotels.

My only personal big disappointment was that my fiancé sent me flowers and chocolates to wish me good luck before my presentation at the same conference I was attending. The flowers though, where only given to me on Saturday upon my departure, with no sign of chocolates and card. A lovely gesture which was disregarded by the hotel staff unfortunately, who were overall nice throughout my stay. Maybe a greater attention to detail would have been largely appreciated!

All over I would probably choose again the IBIS again, especially when travelling on my own, looking for a central and safe location.

We chose this hotel primarily for the location (very close to the Rubens House) and the price. I'd been to Antwerp before and knew I didn't want to stay too close to the train station, and the other hotels near the Old Town were very expensive. This hotel was spotlessly clean and although the room was small and the bathroom was tiny, they were well-designed and maximized the available space. Very bright and modern, with wood floors and clever cubbies/storage space. One nice option is the bar in the lobby, which stays open quite late and offers food as well, which you can eat there or take up to your room. The staff offered your standard chain hotel level of service -- nothing spectacular, but they got the job done. I would definitely stay here again.

First visit to Antwerp and had a pleasant surprise.
Friendly people and lots of small "squares / areas" for food and drink.

Hotel was clean and generally well located between "old town" and the park.
Plenty of old buildings and architecture for the "culturally needy" and generally pleasant city.

Around 15 minutes walk to the "old town" and 20 minutes walk to the river side, however, there is a square next to the hotel for meals and day time entertainment.
Best night life is in the old town - we ran out of steam at around 4.30 am in the morning but plenty of people carried on !!

If you are on a shopping trip the main area is between the hotel and the "old town" so literally 5 minutes away.

As the main evening / night bars are 15 - 20 minutes away so the hotel is in a generally quiet location.

Found the reception one of the slowest I have ever encountered. Plenty of staff but little if any action. !!! - Perhaps I was just unlucky

Great location, great value for money and comfy beds. Good clean and perfect for a girls weekend, not only because of the location but because you don't need lots of fuss when you are going to be enjoying the city all day. Short walk from the station, very close to the city and all the best shops. Don't bother with breakfast, there are lots of great places nearby instead

the room decor is modern fresh and clean. The room is small but adequate for one person. The bathroom is on the small side.
The hotel has a great market across the stree on Saturday and Sunday. you can almost spend the entire day at the market and have fun. the hotel is very close to Reubens house and museum.
