Van der Valk Hotel Antwerpen is a 4-star hotel found just off the Antwerp ring road, 2.5 kilometres from the city centre and a ten-minute drive from Antwerp Airport. The grand Antwerpen Centraal Station is 15 minutes away with the nearby tram, putting guests within a few minutes’ walk of the zoo and easy reach of other attractions like the old town, shopping and Rubenshuis.
All rooms come standard with private bathrooms including a shower-bathtub combination and hairdryer; minibar, flat-screen TV, room service, free Wi-Fi, armchair and table.
Guests can keep active with an indoor swimming pool, a steam room and a sauna, and 13 conference venues are found on site. Free parking and an electric car charging point are available.
Bistro and Bar Stiel serve Belgian, local dishes as well as breakfast buffets. They feature live-cooking dinner on Saturdays and a Sunday brunch.
Van der Valk Hotel Antwerpen is 45 kilometres from Brussels.
Guests appreciated the welcoming and accommodating service they received from staff across the board, and particularly in the bar and restaurant, while the buffet breakfasts were considered lovely, with plenty on offer to choose from.
Nice relaxation facilities and car access.
You will find Scandic Antwerpen’s indoor pool and sauna nice to relax in, and the private, on-site car parking and easy accessibility from the ring road were also appreciated.
Large rooms with everything you need.
The hotel’s rooms were found to be big, clean, sporting comfortable beds, and were well-equipped with everything you could need, including tea and coffee-making supplies.
A little far from the city.
Scandic Antwerpen was thought to be a little too far out from the city by a number of guests, with not much in the area to see or do, but the city was found to be easy to access with buses and trams a short walk away.
Rooms a little tired, noisy.
Some of those who stayed thought the bedroom decor seemed a little tired and in need of a makeover, while others reported some road noise in their rooms, so if you are a light sleeper, perhaps take some earplugs or ask for quieter quarters.
Expensive car parking.
Although having car parking on site was appreciated, a few of those who stayed thought the charge to be a little on the expensive side.
