I had a long journey by train from Munich so the last thing I wanted was a long walk from the train station or an expensive taxi ride. This hotel is nicely located next to the station in Antwerp, yet the city noise is minimal. It's close enough for a nice walk to the pier, the Mas Museum or the Cathedral. Plus, there are a lot of charming restaurants in the area, including the hotel itself.
The room was very clean and spacious. It even had air conditioning, very unusual for the hotels I've seen in Europe.
The next time I stay in Antwerp, I'll definitely be back to the Lindner!
This hotel is very nice, comfortable and clean, but I would recommend it only to people who have a car. We stayed here one night to attend a friend's wedding in the area while we were abroad. Getting here by bus was a nightmare, as the bus we took had its last stop almost a mile from the hotel, so we had to walk the rest of the way with our luggage and there is no sidewalk, we walked in the bike lane. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel, however the bus that stops there only stops once or twice an hour. The hotel is not particularly close to any sights/activities so you will likely be taking a taxi if you need to get any where from there. My only other complaint was that the shower was built so that the water goes EVERYWHERE, not surprisingly I detected a slightly moldy smell in the bathroom, though it appeared to be clean. Otherwise a nice quiet place to stay, but definitely for certain types of travelers (those with a car!).
"Clean friendly but tight with tea coffee and milk."
Lots roadworks around hotel at moment. Dont come home late and expect to park car again was full and barrier would not open. Do like others we parked on slip road leading into car park. Good bus and tram into the beautiful city. Was no english tea in room and coffee and powered milk sparce. But in all fairness was told we could have called down and some extras would have been sent up. No bisciuts but ash tray in room so could smoke if wanted to! Which was a bonus and a surprise as very rare one of us smokes. Thing is rooms just didnt smell of smoke. So smoked outside. large beds but tended to slightly part during the night. Ok if you like to sleep apart and you dont cuddle in the middle.
Only had 2 nights in Amsterdam but this hotel was by far the most superior, comfortable of our European whirlwind trip.The ambience of our room was just what we we needed after 14 hectic days. Facilities in room were top class and the bed - you just sank into it. We had a small balcony and just to stand out there looking at the magnificent buildings and trees around us was so relaxing. Would definitely stay there again.
I stayed in the hotel a week and was very happy with everything, the staff were friendly, the room was clean and large by European standards and everything worked. Would stay here again.
My only gripe was the Wi-Fi in the room was a bit expensive - 17 EUR/day or 88 EUR/week. I got the weekly deal and it worked great, super-fast and always on. Alternatively you can use the free Wi-Fi in the lobby which worked well also.
