Great hotel for a romantic break  |  17/05/2009

I booked this hotel before seeing any reviews of it, and after coming on TripAdvisor, I’ll admit I was a bit worried about what to expect... In the end, we had a lovely stay here. The room was clean and comfortable and had a shower room and toilet. I loved the wooden furnishings and the cool windows and the bed was really comfy. Breakfast was in the morning was good (continental-style - so basically all the cereal, bread, yoghurt, fruit, cheese, cold meat and funny little cakes you can eat). We had a great view of the cathedral and the location was fantastic - right in the city centre. There were plenty of info leaflets in the reception area and the staff were friendly and helpful. I also liked that reception was open 24 hours a day - great if you want to experience Antwerp’s nightlife (reportedly the best in Belgium). However, I can certainly confirm some of the (less positive) things other people have said: the stairs are very steep, definitely not good if you have heavy luggage! I didn’t think there was too much noise (except the cathedral bells of course, but they stop by about 9 pm and they’re actually quite nice), though my boyfriend said he was woken up by the sound of people in the street outside. And I think it isn’t always easy to tell exactly what bathroom facilities your room will have - there are rooms with just sinks, rooms with sinks and showers and rooms with sinks, showers and toilets. I suspect I only got a room with everything because I booked via the hotel’s (Dutch-language) website. Also, the bedroom and the shower room didn’t have doors on them - fine for solo travellers/couples, but maybe not ideal if you’re staying here with friends or relatives! On the whole, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back/recommend it. Source:

What a great little place  |  17/05/2009

What a great deal. Friendly service, clean rooms, amazing location, great price. Probably the best beal in my month long visit to Europe. Location is across the street (literally) from the cathedral, and a 50 foot walk to Grote Market. The service was very friendly, and it cost 40 euros. If your looking for luxury accomodation, this is not it, but if you looking for basic clean accomodations in the city center, I don’t know how could improve upon Postiljon. Source:
