We really didn't know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in a great location, right by the marina and MAS museum (which is very impressive and is a must to visit). It is also not too far from the city centre. The staff were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were more than adequate and very clean. The only issue we had was that secure parking was disappointingly expensive at €17 per night.
There is a bus stop directly outside the hotel and the centre is just 3 stops (€2). We got taxis back in the evenings and each time it was under €10. There are a few bars and restaurants around the marina but there is a huge number to choose from when you get into the centre of town. If you haven't seen it before, the central station is worth checking out as is the Stadsfeestzaal shopping centre and of course the cathedral. Antwerp is not somewhere that you would possibly associate with being a tourist destination but don't be fooled, there is plenty to see and do and we certainly enjoyed our stay. This Holiday Inn is one I would definitely recommend and I would certainly use again.
