location ambiance and room furnishings
It was very nice to have a private garden. My wife smokes and we had a non smoking room. It was very nice to have a garden where it was allowed to smoke.
Excellent situation in the heart of the historic centre. Also a very individual hotel totally unlike the usual business chains / brands
The breakfast was very good, the room was big and clean. Yes, For such a expensive hotel wireless should be for free! A pit poor that you have to buy this at reception.
I appriciated the serviceminded and kind staff. The room was clean, which is very important for me. Good breakfast. No free access to internet.
Quiet location in the centre of Antwerpen, breakfast is ok, clean hotel. a bit expensive but that might be logical for such a room on such a location.
The room was light and cheerful and the included breakfast was excellent. Good location. Staff spoke perfect English and was always helpful. Nothing that Ican think of.
Big rooms, excellent location Parking was full. We were adviced to go to park along the river, which turned out to be very expensive (38 E for 24 hours). We only found out after picking up the car.
Smiling faces. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. We had an upgraded room as the hotel was not full. Welcome glass of sherry or port
Localização central; Decoração moderna; Inexistência de recepção à noite. O facto dos hóspedes chegarem depois das 20 H e terem de ir buscar a chave do hotel a outro hotel longe deste e não haver nada escrito em inglês.
Da localização. O quarto duplo standard é muito pequeno, claustrofóbico.
Location Reception closes to early
A cava que nos foi ofertada na primeita noite. Que tal portas opacas nos banheiros? Portas transparentes criam grandes constrangimentos além desse fato não ser mencionado no site.
A cama, bastante confortável. O quarto no geral! Com as fotos apresentadas no v/ site cria-se uma expectativa em relação ao quarto, e quando cheguei ao local, tive uma completa decepção! ... Mas como era só para uma noite!!
It is in the centre of one of the best towns in Belgium. Dinner, shopping, museum and river Scheldt are all in walking distance with excellent parking facilities. Hotel was nicely decorated and breathed ambiance.
Good location and friendly staff
Location and a very quiet room 24 hour tea and coffee in reception; reception staff helpful although they did mislead us over the Brussels railway stations for Eurostar (It is midi/Zuid not Central!) Room was not that great and walls quite dirty; bathroom also old and not feeling clean. Breakfast was poor at 9 am after the other guests had taken most of it; on quieter day it was excellent. Also not easy to get taxis there - didn't bother us as we could walk.
The location was very convenient. The room was very old and the window was a bit difficult to close
it was personalised. It was attractive and the rooms appeared to be very individula the breakfast was poor. No pot of coffee merely a machine with small cups. Noone to help with luggage. Shower in bathroom was cramped and bath was small
Our Junior Suite was spacious, with a huge and comfortable double bed, 2-seat sofa plus armchair. The room also had an Internet corner, safe, minibar, trouser-press, small TV with dvd player, and a good bathroom with plenty of towels, bathrobes, and soaps/gels etc. The breakfast was excellent, with a coffee machine available 24 hours.The hotel is quietly situated on the corner of 2 small streets, yet just a 5-minute stroll to the Grote Markt, shops and dozens of restaurants. It would be difficult to imagine a better place to stay for a city break to Antwerp.
Second time at this hotel in Antwerp. It's an independent hotel that caters for guests who want something different. Lovely building and the decor plays on a classical style. Most importantly very clean room with little noise as its set off from the main road. Relaxed crowd typical of Antwerp, which is a positive.
The reception staff were very very helpful, it was quiet but central location, nice design of classic building, would stay there again. Breakfast, the scrambled eggs and bacon/sausage was cold, but the breakfast lady said that it was warm. not good.
Location was great, but it was not a boutique hotel and the staff welcome was average. No atmosphere, poor value for money.
The excellent location in the centre of the city The room was fairly small and crowded with furniture.
Ambiance, location, friendly staff Room was a bit noisy
I like the refinement - both in the decor and the attitude of the staff. Nothing.
The hotel was clean and comfortable and very near the city centre Our room overlooked the front and a tram goes past constantly
breakfast, hotel design price too high for the service, room to be decorated on the wall
The hotel was in a good location, right near the main square. Hotel is clean and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Also, they have complimentary tea/coffee/soft drinks in the lobby. It was hard to find. The road that it's located on isn't on many maps because of how small it is.
The location, perfect for the historic centre of Antwerp and the design district. One problem, common to all city centre hotels, is the noise from the street.
Very nice rooms, very good location
Relaxed, friendly, very attentive sevice. Excellent help booking and recommending special restaurants. Lovely to unwind by the intimate open fire with complimentary glass of beer or wine after a long day sightseeing and shopping. Simple but chic accommodation. Great showers. The sophisticated sound system in the room was erratic and the plug in the bathroom basin did not work, but these were small inconveniences.
The staff were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Always smiling. With it being a smaller hotel it felt much more personal, and when we arrived the person who checked us in made us feel really wecome. Check in was quick, we were in our room in minutes - which was great after a long journey to get there. Overall our stay in this hotel was a comfortable experience. We had read reviews saying the rooms were too small, however we found ours to be absolutely fine, we had no problems - and we had a fair bit of luggage with us. The ceiling was not as sound proof as we would have liked, we could clearly hear the people above moving around above us. Had they been doing this very late at night or often it would have disturbed our sleep. However the double glazing shut out any noise from the street - which made the room quiet otherwise.
Good accommondation, Good service
Location. Restaurants are open late. Room too small. No bath, shower only. Safe did not work. Water kettle turned coffee/tea salty. Too many little annoyances. Poor breakfast. (good scrambled eggs though) . Internet cable too short. Bring your own.
Super location in the middle of the old city. Excellent breakfast served at a neighboring wine restaurant. You are within minutes from all the great sights and excellent in Antwerp. I happened to get the noisy room. My room was close to the reception where everyone passes. But the assured told me that the all other rooms are quiet and next time I should ask for a quiet room.
The location was fantastic, the surroundings charming and the host and hostess went out of their way to make our stay memorable.Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had a marvellous time in Antwerp.
the warmth and welcome of the owner, relaxed comfortable and homely atmosphere, very central.
Location. Comfort. Historic building. No
A historic house, quiet location yet right in the centre of town, large room, large modernised bathroom with all facilities. Not everything was quite ready in the room when I arrived, but it was soon sorted out.
The room is so romantic and quiet; you dont hear any noise of the city, while it is situated in the middle of antwerp /
accomodation, friendlyness, close to shopping and historical centre of Antwerp NA
Friendly staff, clean and very nice rooms. Directly located in the centre, everything in walking distance.
The design of the room: modern, complete (with everything fitted in a small space). The bed. The owners: discreet but friendly. The breakfast (even if we didn't have the small cakes shown on the B&B site!). We stay on the second floor room where the door is a glazed one: a curtain or something against the light would be necessary for a good night sleep. The noise was terrible until 4 am as the B&B is located on a place with bars. It seems that it is not the case all the time: but anyway better avoid the hotel in Summer when the terraces are all opened! As consequence we didn't sleep well (but the owners had the same problems & the man was very sorry in the morning!).
The room is very nice and extremely clean, it is truly a pleasure to stay there. Also, the breakfast is really good, in quality and quantity, and very nicely presented. The only thing we did not like, which is not the B&B problem but around, is that the building beside it is under construction, so the work noises start at 9am and sound quite close.
very friendly host, breakfast sublime internet didn't work
Very welcoming owners. Rooms very well fitted out. Small kitchen area a big plus. And the fresh breakfast basket left outside your door in the morning is just a great idea. Fantastic fresh bread, ham, cheese, and orange juice freshly squeezed to die for. Why anyone would want to give this accomodation a bad review is beyone me - its fab!!
Fui enganado nas informações prestadas pelo hotel. Não reserve nunca o estudio mencionado. Trata-se de um bar desativado, fora do corpo do hotel, adaptado para quarto, com camas inclusive colocadas abaixo da escada. O local cheirava a mofo e era inviável a permanência. Troca do gerente.
Localização (próximo ao centro histórico), café da manhã bom ( e incluído na diária), simpatia funcionários, tamanho do quarto (bem grande) Queríamos pagar a conta dividida em 3 pessoas, mas não aceitaram. Em todos hotéis que passamos pela Europa não hove nenhum problema quanto a isso. Aí nossa amiga pagou o de todos no cartão dela, mas foi ruim estavamos no fim da viagem e o dinheiro e cartão já estavam no limite. Outro ponto ruim foi a internet. Disseram que era wi-fi, mas não conseguimos acessá-la. O quarto não dispunha de ar condicionado.
o hotel antigone nao me agradou muito falta acesso a internet nos apartamentos
The hotel is the same as former hotel Postiljon and has just been rebranded. Rooms and central facilities are well redecorated. Breakfast room and seatings around the nice fire place are stylish. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Warm and cosy atmosphere, because it's not one of those big (chain) hotels. Because the hotel is right opposite the cathedral, we found the loud ringing of the clocks disturbing. Also, the bar(s) just around the corner played loud music during the night. The bedroom and bathroom are only separated by a wall that is not closed till the ceiling (also no door). Might be disturbing to people that want/need privacy while in the bathroom.
The staff were exceedingly helpful. The location of the hotel is perfect for a city break to Antwerp. The 'open plan' nature of the bathroom and toilet.
hotel ok, location very good, no door in bathroom
The location was very good. Very conveniently located, close to restaurants and shops. On sunday morning there is a cute little anitque market in front of the hotel! We had a room for 2 persons which was on the 4th floor, many stairs to go and it was at the attic which made the room way smaller than all the other rooms. The beds where like camping beds, which weren't comfortable at all. Do not go here for any luxury, but it was clean - therefor a good price - quality balance.
Friendly service and excellent value for the money, including good lighting, heat, and no-frills shower; cleanliness (including shared toilet) lumpy mattress
free WiFi and free breakfast (small but good) you can hear the neighbors when they cross your door or want to go upstairs
Good position The room was scruffy, there was a street light just outside the window and the curtains were thin. The room was ugly.
Friendly staff at Reception The rooms need some TLC My room was on the street and people could see into the room, no privacy. The passages smelled as if there was a blocked drain somewhere.
big room, clean shower beds not too comfortable
The location of the hotel was great as it was close to interesting museums and lovely cafes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very cold as there did not seem to be any heating. There was no toilet in the room. The pillows were far too soft and flimsy which made for an uncomfortable night's sleep.
Excellent location. Rooms were very clean and comfortable; breakfast included a plus. Wi-fi too. Could certainly use a lift, especially if your room is on the fourth floor (fifth floor US).
very close to the city and the river; nice location in the heart of the city During our stay we were literally eaten alive by mosquitos - some proper 'killing-tools' might have been usefull (we used a towel which turned into a grave for dozens of them, and looked like it...), or even better: some anti-mosquito spray.
The new owners have made some positive changes, for example giving the rooms some fresh paint, installing a fridge downstairs (it is pleasant to have the possibility to buy drinks downstairs, even get them sent up to your room, for reasonable prices). Breakfast was nice too; good coffee. Overall some nice developments in the Scheldezicht. Still a few things to do, I guess.
Simple clean budget hotel. No
It was very cebtral abd close to historic sites and restaurants etc. The fact that the rooms did not have a toilet -it is better not to have to share a toilet with other guests
central location noisy
the central location,near the cathedral before us,the room was used by smokers
The location was absolutely incredible. Open the window, and you're looking directly at the grand Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal, the cathedral on all the Antwerp postcards. The room was nice, nothing spectacular, but for the price and location, the place was excellent. Not a problem for me and my partner, but the glass shower enclosure was right there in the room. "Double Room with Washbasin - Toilet in Hall" is probably not a good idea for business/family travelers.
The staff was friendly and very accomodating.
The location was excellent - right next to the cathedral! The view from the window was fantastic - you need to book a room with a shower to get the view. I booked a double room but got twin beds. The room itself was very basic.
Excellent situation, even with the cathedral bells! No fire exit - not obvious anyway Very steep narow stairs, could be dangerous
Excellent location; very clean.
