On the doorstep of the Centraal Station
The Park Inn by Radisson is located directly outside the Centraal Station in Antwerp which makes travelling around Antwerp and indeed Belgium very easy. I booked the hotel through Expedia and got a small discount, costing £130 for 2 nights without breakfast. This was on par with a lot of hotels in the area but the Park Inn seemed to be the nicer looking out of them all.
I was very impressed with the hotel. The rooms were clean, modern and the reception staff were really helpful and friendly. The only niggle about the hotel was that the breakfast cost 18 euros per person each morning which seemed a bit steep to me so we opted not to have breakfast and went to a bakery each morning instead.
In the room was the usual amenities such as a hair dryer, kettle etc. They also had a coffee machine, a variety of different coffees and teas which were replenished by the cleaning staff each day.
Both nights that we stayed in the hotel we had a really good sleep, the pillows and the mattress were really comfortable and we couldn't hear any noise from outside of from the hallway. We didn't have much of a view from the window but we were out travelling so much that it didn't bother us.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to any friends travelling to Antwerp.
Directions: With your back to the Radisson Blu look to the left, then you will see it.
Modern Hotel near Central Station
Located near Central Station in Astridplein this hotel is not a particularly attractive building.
It's modern, manicured and has no character. In other words it's just how I like it. To me a hotel with character means that your legs stick out of the bathroom door and the floorboards creak. Not here.
I had a standard room which had plenty of space and a view, which I asked for. The double glazing kept out any outside noise and the air conditioning was very efficient - which it needed to be with the temperature up in the 30's outside.
My room also included a Nespresso coffee machine which suited me perfectly as did the free wi-fi and in room safe. All very easy to use. A good sign was that I never needed to contact Reception the whole time I was here because everything was as it should be.
There was even a Fitness Suite here that I didn't use . The facilities at the sister hotel, the Radisson Blu, across the square are also available to guests. I didn't use any of them so I don't know what the score is there. I do know you get a healthy discount if you use the restaurant.
Breakfast wasn't included in the price but I wasn't bothered about that either because I found a bite to eat elsewhere.
At £65 for the room per night I couldn't have asked for more especially as they let me in early and allowed me to stay later. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Directions: Near Central Station and The Zoo
We got a really good deal with Eurostar which included a stay at the Park Inn. The rooms are large, bright and airy with all the mod cons you could want. Bathroom was a really good size with good quality toileteries too. Would definitely stay here again when I am next in Antwerp.
Unique Quality: The best thing about the hotel is the perfect location in front of the Central Station. Our room was at the back so there was no noise.
Directions: By Central station. Perfect location
A nice ***-hotel
'Hotel Atlanta' is from my point of vieuw a
construction crime. I often wonder what kind of
building stood there before they build this ugly
Anyway , let's talk about the hotel.
'Location'- a great location. If you arrive
by train in the central station you are only five
steps away from your hotel. The 'koningin
astridplein' is a wharf now for some years
but should be finished 2005. Your in Belgium ,
let's say december. :-)
'restaurant' - cross the square and you
got a wide choise of cheap and mid priced
restaurant. You wont find anything posh here.
'Shopping' - your steps away from
the most visited shopping street in Belgium ,
walk down the 'de keyserlei'. Even there you
can find some supermarkets already.
'Atractions'- the zoo is your neighbour ,
the magnificient building is the diamond museum ,
aquatopia is so close you can
almost smell the fish. ( joking , joking)
'Public transport' - the astridplein is
a cross point for the underground , trams , busses...
you can find the tourist office at number 26
to get the correct information.
'going out' - the cinema is very near this
square. Your in the station neighbourhood , so
adult entertainment isn't that far. No prostitution
anymore but a strip club , a blue movies ,
some sex shops...
Also the kiningin Elisabethzaal is here ,
classical music , the famous contest for piano ,
singing , violin. Gaystraat is like 100
step from this hotel. The glory years are over
but still you can find some amience.
Last but not least , the little piece of street
we call 'chinatown' also start at the
corner of this square.
I think the location is quit good , excellent.
It is not the cheapest hotel in Antwerp ,
but were you looking for cheap?
The building has no character.... and
for that price there are other options as well.
Still , staying on the Astridplein is easy.
If your short in time , only staying one night
this is an excellent choice.
