“ok, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2010

to keep it simple. It is a business hotel, but not a romatic getaway. There is nothing really bad about the hotel. Easy to find, 3 km from downtown, clean rooms, quick simple professional check in. Also communication beforehand was ok. I requested connected rooms, and got the confirmation the same day. Dislikes: restaurant is expensive, main courses are around 20 Euros. Breakfast is 21 Euros. (might be good, but for 21 Euros per person normally I do not even try.) If You get a good deal, the hotel is an ok choice. I will come back, as I have another reservations on the pointsavers, You can not beat that. Parking is kind of expensive with 15 Euros per day, but enough parking on the street. Once You are there You can check it out, I parked my car 50 m from the hotel entrance away, at least 50 more spaces around 200 m from here, while the hotel parking was empty. Another goodie: Internet is free. Another downside: no sleeper advantage package. Crowne Plaza is making so many advertisment with it, and the fromt desk did not even have an idea what is?

Very nice, clean hotel with friendly staff who, of course, can speak perfect English. Good accommodation with most amenities required in the room. Upper floors have great view over City. Food too pricey however, especially when there is a fabulous fixed price restaurant (The Kolmar) almost next door which offers extremely good value for money and the food was great (plus in the evening all beer and house wine in with the price - including refills!)

The place is OK for business, but it has been worked hard and needs refurbishment.

Bathroom is outdated, althought the shower is the most powerful one I have ever experienced!

Restaurant was big disapointment, but you got fed before an OK sleep for the next day.

Breakfast was a bit stressful, however

Crowne Plaza Antwerp is located in a quiet, safe and uninteresting suburb of Antwerp. Good tram and bus connections with Antwerp centre. Tram: go left from the main entrance and follow a cycle path for appr. 4-5 minutes. Tram 2 and 6 are in front of the Expo. Bus 22 is in front of the main entrance. Takes appr. 10 minutes to Antwerp centre. Friendly reception, standard room is basic, bed and bathroom ok and clean. Superior is nicer, renovated and hotel parking is free. Try to get separate beds, as its all queen sized, and rather small to my taste. Parking is free in front of the hotel, but limited space. Breakfast is very good , hot and cold buffet style breakfast, good quality and choice. Rooms are quiet, no noise from the neighbors. If you get a good price it's well worth it. Plus: free Wi-Fi

Yes, it's quite old.
But the people are great.
True Crown Plaza charm (Verena, Frontdesk...)
And it's clean, very clean.
Large flatscreen and comfy bed's
Public transport takes you in 15 minutes downtown.
And it's very quit

Agree with previous reviews that this is not quite up to standard as a Crowne Plaza. No tea/coffee facilities in the room, despite saying so on the reservation, left-over pizza boxes in the corridor were not removed the next morning and the occasional dirty plates in the breakfast buffet. Poor-quality pillows (very high and filling uneven). Free internet and a good range of choices for breakfast a plus. Dull building but well situated for my purpose, would however chose a more central hotel if visiting for tourism or relaxation.

We went to Antwerp in December and stayed at this hotel for one night.

Comfortable, clean and easy access to city - bus stop outside main entrance

Breakfast ok but cramped for space at peak time (9.30 am on a sunday morning). Bean to cup coffee machine a nice touch!

But all in all adequate for a stopover.
