VERY hospitable hotel, great location, we loved it
We had a wonderful stay. At first when we entered the suite it felt a little small and we couldn't start up the fireplace, we felt disappointed so we made a call to the reception that it was not working and we left our room to go into the city. When we came back at 20.30 the fire was burning and there was a bottle of champagne in a cooler on our bed, along with some savory snacks and a very kind letter from the reception. This was the best present we could wish for as this was our annivery night. We have spent our evening in bed next to the fire with a glass of bubbels instead of in a belgium bar as we planned on. This was absolutely great. Another pleasant surprise was that at 16.30 the Banks hotel treats their guests for small tapas snacks and cava in the main lobby lounge. All free of charge. This is a wonderful gesture that you don't see very often, as a guest in this hotel you really feel special. PS: Breakfast was awesome

don't bank on it !
Good location with average rooms. Booked large room but was not big at all. Bathroom sink odd placement with nowhere to place your own items. 4 different textures in pillows on bed. Breakfast was a large serving but out of touch with todays needs. Served pate, ham and bacon. Am not a vegetarian bit surely this is an food you should ask if you want it for breakfast instead of including it on our morning platers. Carbtastic breads and pastries though. Grab breakfast across the street for same price and get what you want with a massive menu.

Central and Modern with Happy Hour
Ideally located, modern, and generous with the food and drink - a great place to stay in Antwerp that provides all of the essentials and some nice perks. The lack of late night reception is a little inconvenient, and I would have preferred a minibar, but those are small complaints.
