we stayed one night and enjoyed the lobby and the artwork. the aperitif and the breakfast were very good quality. the room too small. the hotel is situated in a brilliant neighbourhood in the centre of Antwerpen.

Good central hotel
Reviewed 1 month ago

The hotel is located next to the old part of the city.
Less than 10 mins walk from shops restaurants and main attractions.The room was clean but quite small in general..walls are thin so you can hear when someone next door uses the bathroom. There is a small window on the street.room has a good bathroom with high pressure shower and coffee tea facilities. The major plus after the location are the reception as they are very nice and helpful. All in all its fine for 1 or 2 nights to visit the citym

Location!

This is our third visit to Antwerp, and our third stay at the Banks Hotel. We like to spend time in Antwerp, not only because it’s so charming, but also to adjust from jet lag - 9 hour flight, plus 1 hour train ride, and time change.
The welcome drink is always a nice touch, as is the HH sitting by the fireplace.
The location is perfect. We take the short tram ride from train station to the central square and walk 2 blocks to hotel.
The room fits all of our needs, but some might find it small for 2 people for a longer visit. One suggestion- maybe reconfigure the chairs/furniture to better accommodate 2 luggage racks. I think we used one chair as a rack, but that defeats the chair’s purpose.
We didn’t have breakfast here, but it looked good. We like the Le Pain Quotidien across the street! Also recommend the Museum Plantin-Moretus.

Modern hip, tries too hard
Reviewed 2 months ago

This place is right in the city center, and a short walk to the old heart of town. Tragically hip. They greet you with a glass of prosecco, which was a good start, after logging luggage from the train station (a must-see Antwerp Centraal). The room was really really small room 211 again the smallest one on the floor. No individual toiletries, bottles mounted on the wall in a stall shower. There was no closet, and there were no tub, just a larger shower. Let’s just say spare. A modern build hotel, with 5 floors across the street from the Diane Van Furstenberg boutique in a pedestrian zone. The breakfast here was adequate but probably not worth the 17 Euro given what we had in other hotels. They have a roof deck, but it was closed, even though it was only Sept 15. Modern art throughout. Would skip this one, not worth the 4 star price.

Cyclists watch out

Don’t stay at this hotel if you’re on a cycling holiday. They have no where to keep your bike safe during your stay, or are unwilling to.
They will direct you to a multi-story csrpark. Car park staff will not let your bikes inside. Definitely don’t store your bike in the bike park at the main train station.
