“Above average for a budget hotel”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised on the size of the rooms at this 'budget' hotel. Unlike other budget hotels in the region, this is not tired nor run down - quite the opposite. Clean, bright, simple.
Yes it is compact with the shower/hand basin etc but all was fine.
We needed somewhere to stay for 1 night after a night out in Antwerp. I'm not sure about a long stay but as somewhere to lay your head, fine.

A couple of things for me not to give it a '5' - the bedbase is a single board, not slats etc, so some may find it very hard. Towels were thin and scratchy. No hairdryer. None of these things though would stop me staying again.

We had no problems with noise (and we left our window open all night). However, we were on the square facing side at the weekend.

We didn't have the breakfast, so can not comment on this.

We walked everywhere including to the old town, the river etc. There were plenty of people around at all times (even at midnight), so I felt quite safe.

If arriving from the train station (as others have said), very easy to get to. Take the exit that is at the opposite end of the main entrance. It leads in to the Diamond Hall. From there just keep heading straight. There are signs point to "L KIEVITstraat". If you follow them, you are practically there. Once exited the building, turn left and you can see (about 100 metres away), the blue IBIS sign on the side of a building in a small square. Walk towards this. The actual entrance though, is not below the sign on the square but around the other side on the street.

Overall I'd recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 109 (facing the square), very quiet on the weekend night we were there.

Its 200m away from railstation and only
600m
From 'de meir'. We stayed in the hotel for only one night. Payed 55 euro for one night , 3 persons.

Rate is ok. But the rooms are very noisy. You hear everything. But for 55 euro no problem.
So for what you Pay you get a Good
Room
In THE city center

Most decent hotel in Belgium per price/quality, clean rooms, good breakfast. Very nice ambience, proper showers and toilets, looks like the chinese compact hotels with strong colors and a little futuristic look. If you are on a limited budget with friends/coleagues or family, it will be hard to find anyrhing cheaper in the heart of the town, it is at 100m from the central station. Also a big underground parking is available at 100m for 18€/day. If not, you can find parkings on the neighbouring streets for 3.5€ but very difficult, beware not to leave items in car.

This is a budget hotel. Don't expect too much. But this what you get is worth its price. Room was not too small with bathroom as an annex. Service was good, no disturbing cleaning service, quick check-in (with payment at check-in). Breakfast was simple but enough.
