This hotel advertises itself as a 1 star hotel, but it is much better than many 3 stars hotels. The location is the best you can have in Antwerp: the Cathedral of Our Lady is just outside your window, and the Grote markt (the city's main square) is less than a minute walk from the hotel. The staff were all...

I wanted to like this place more but a number of little things let them down. Room tired. Booked a double but got a twin - lucky we are slender as these beds were tiny! Breakfast fine though very slow to restock the food (had to keep asking). Clearly the dishwasher had not worked as two piles of plates dirty....

Great location and breakfast. Streets are confusing, so if you are facing the front of the cathedral, hotel is in alley to the left. We were in room #3 with private bathroom. Staircase is very steep and narrow. 51 steps to top. Room is very basic. Minimal decor, basically just a bed. But can't beat location and price.

A tip for anyone on TripAdvisor. I keep saying... don't believe the bad reviews... some people just get it so wrong. Follow your gut instinct and you can find some amazing little places... just like the Postilion! The position of the hotel is just amazing. It's literally right next to the Cathedral... yes, you hear the bells ring but it's...

I just really liked the location of the place, very near to the square but it has its issues as its noisy till late in the night and early morning there are chruch bells as its just next door. The hotel is very old and so are the rooms. Its an issue to take your suitcase up the tiny staircase....

When u visit antwerpen, u need to consider to stay here. Their location is very strategic for us (even the Cathedral is in front of your very eyes) The room is clean and comfort, I do enjoy the stay there. Really happy i was lucky enough to meet the owner too, he was very nice and welcome

Second stay in this centrally-located hotel in Antwerp. Don't expect any luxury but it is great for short break in the city. Room 27 is very good value for many (single/double occupancy with private bathroom). Staff was very friendly and always ready to help. will be back!

This hotel is a bargain and it does exactly what you need it to. It's a compact place with rooms dotted about but it is very good value for money. Just be warned of the cathedral next door and the early morning bell ringing practise but don't let that put you off! If you want to see Antwerp and not...
