“Quiet and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

The bed is a futon style mattress so it was a bit rough sleeping on, and the pillows were flat. Otherwise, very quiet, good value for money-felt safe there. It was unusually warm in Antwerp and leaving the window open didn't help a lot, but that wasn't the hotels fault. Great location right next to the train station so made catching our outgoing train super easy!

Stayed 2 nights here. Swift check-in, keyless entry. Can't beat the location, it's just right out of the southern exit of Antwerpen Centraal. There's a LIDL next to it so handy for super cheap night time nibbles. Neighborhood looks a bit dodgy though.

Slogan of this hotel (or actually a whole chain of Ibis Budget hotels) is "Essential comfort at affordable price". Well, comfort in Ibis Budget in Antwerpen is really essential. You'll receive nothing more than absolutely essential services and amenities. Rooms are plastic, walls are plastic, beds are made of plastic and everything is actually designed in minimalistic industrial style - but with light and vivid colors. So, if you like a bit futuristic design - this is place for you.

Rooms have separate toilets and bathrooms. Both toilet and bathroom are located in niches - the size of average drawer. So, imagine yourself having a bath in an plastic illuminated drawer a bit bigger more spacious than standing solarium.

Each window has a special metal lock so that it cannot be opened. You can open open a window only two centimeters wide - literary. To prevent smoking on the window or jumping trough it - who knows?

Breakfast is absolutely essential, in line with above mentioned slogan. Butter, jam, apples, bread, salami + espresso and orange juice. Poor taste.

However, this plastic experience, under condition that you are fan of such things - is not so bad after all. You'll have a nice sleep. It is clean and the staff is kind. It is situated on the probably best location in the city - less than 50m from main train station from where you have a train to Brussels airport on every full hour. Good thing to know.

Finally, "essential comfort" comes together with not so essential price - 60e/per night/per person for a three bed room. I know hostels/hotels with lower prices and better experience.

All in all - this is new, smartly designed hotel to reduce every kind of waste on minimum: waste of space, energy, resources... If price suits you - you will get what you need. It will be minimalistic experience with no major faults or disappointments. Problem of this hotel is that you will not find any satisfactions there neither. No ups and downs. Flatliner.

Room Tip: three bed room is OK if there are two of you inside. If you have a third person with you it is like...

Hotel was very good value. This Ibis, like all, is very basic and small in size, but more importantly it was very clean. Location is great once you find it, but the company map was almost impossible to follow. Recommended for singles or close couples.

I give high marks to hotels that do something well within their price range. So, this is a budget hotel, and so my rating is based on how well it did. The rooms are basic but very clean. The bed (with a bunk above) was vast and very comfortable. The shower was excellent. The breakfast (at 7.50 was, well, budget, but perfectly adequate and fresh to set one up for the day). The free wifi was good and fast. So all in all a good place to lay one's head, close to the station (go out of the entrance right at the far end of the platform as far from the main (and magnificent) station buildings as you can go.

Bit of a nightmare to find initially as hotel map not that clear and be warned, the railway station is massive. Though once you know where it is, it’s easy!
To the uninitiated, this hotel is a long walk - 20 mins plus - from the main attractions though very close to the main railway station. So good if travelling by train.
Rooms large, relatively clean and modern.
Little noisy from main road outside.
Area felt relatively safe though a lone female traveller may find the way from station back at night a little intimidating.
Facilities at hotel basic but what do you expect – it’s a basic hotel.
Staff on reception very helpful.
Free wifi in room.
left luggage costs 2E a bag.
Bed and pillows bit cheap and thin.
Small toilet and shower cubicle in room. No bath.
Bit like a student dorm room.
TV worked ok – could get BBC.
Liked the multi-coloured light on shower head though.
