I agree with other reviewers that the hotel is well located for getting around Antwerp, so that's a big plus. I also like the fact that one can request an early check-in for a 19E fee if one arrives early and wants to unpack and get started. However, the staff seem to be either very good, knowledgeable, helpful or not at all--no in between. The lounge is a nice amenity for those booking executive rooms and up. The breakfast offering is the standard European continental breakfast without a lot of surprises. We were surprised to find that after breakfast hours and before tea, the fridge is locked so that one can't relax with a cold drink at any time. The evening offerings tend to bar snacks so not many healthy options. The rooms are quite soundproof but some of the corridor lengths can be daunting as the hotel is spread over 2-3 buildings.Each room is also outfitted with the electronic minibar with no space for a guest to store anything brought in. Thank goodness, most hotels in the US have decided to get rid of minibars in favor of mini fridges for the guests convenience. Makes a lot more sense
We had some issues with our bill that I thought were straightened out at check-out, but they came back to haunt me in a subsequent email requesting additional $$$. Ordering a taxi to the train station also proved to be a fiasco causing a few more grey hairs.
Would like to see a little more consistence in staff behavior than what we experienced
