“Nice little getaway”
Reviewed July 11, 2010

Ask for a room on the top floor as these are the ones with shared roof terraces - great views. Very clean comfy room. Mini-bar didn't work but everything else was nice. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. A short walk to a beautiful park and 15 Minutes to the central bus station (just a couple of stops by tram). Good quiet location in a residential part of town.

We upgraded to a "Deluxe room" upon arrival and were completely surprised by the size of the room ... it's huge! The room had a balcony to sit upon and we had a great view from the 7th floor over the city. Staff was excellent and had great tips about Antwerp, lots of laughter at reception and bar, we really had a great time!

I stayed here while attending a conference at the expo centre which is conveniently located on the same tram line which serves the hotel. On arrival I paid an additional €15 per night and received an upgrade to a junior suite complete with separate living room and bedroom. Wireless internet was free and was of excellent bandwidth. The hotel is privately owned and has a certain old fashioned charm and the reception staff are all very helpful and speak a variety of European languages and certainly helped me to find a number of local amenities with ease. The meal service was good although being a small-ish hotel service at the bar was sometimes non-existent as the barman doubled up as the waiter. Not a trains mash though and overall I found this hotel to be excellent value for money and would stay there again during my next trip to Antwerp rather than at one of the over priced international hotel chains...

Gem of a boutique hotel located in a quiet neighborhood. Superb breakfasts were served in an elegant setting and the staff knew us and automatically brought our orange juice, coffee and tea when we walked into the restaurant. The junior suite was spacious and the extra kitchen area for 10 Euros extra was great for late night snacks and making light meals. We stayed at The Plaza for 9 nights when stranded in Europe because of the volcanic ash. The staff was most helpful and gracious in offerering sightseeing tips along with suggestions for food shopping and laundromats. We would surely return to the Plaza if visiting lovely Antwerp again. Many thanks to all staff, especially to Jana and Jeff.

Lovely hotel, well furnished and comfortable. Rooms are good and the beds very comfortable.

Although the hotel is well out of the city centre it is close to the tramline and access to the centre is quite easy. However if you were to arrive late in the evening looking for dinner it would be the wrong hotel. There is no restaurant in the hotel although there are some that supply free taxi-transfer but beware they are not the cheapest.

I was slightly irritated that I had to pay 16 euros to park in their underground car park and the reception staff promote an upgrade as soon as you arrive. They give the impression of moneygrabbing rather than quality service.

The hotel is excellent, it is a shame the extras are not there to make the stay memorable for the right reasons.

Whiel myself and my husband only spent one night at the Plaza, the stay was excellent.
The room was of a superb standard and we both had a wonderful night's sleep.
The hotel is so clean and there is no noise.
Recommend this one to anyone.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights on business trip. very comfy rooms with a lot of space, well organized, great bathroom and very quiet. even from rooms by the lift, no noise at all are heard, which is very seldom. Breakfast is good and service is efficient. Negative points are the bed which was definetly far too soft for me and the slow internet connection that kept disconecting, particualrly annoying when you work with a VPN.
