This hotel recommended in the Belgium book was a disappointment to us. The hotel itsekf is fine, nothing fancy. But a great deal of street noise goes on until 2, 3, 4 in the morning so make sure you get a room in the rear or go somewhere else.
I read the same thing a couple of years ago in a book a guy wrote about his train trips through Europe.
I stayed here and didn't hear any street noise at all. It was a wonderful boutique hotel with some very nice touches and a great breakfast. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Antwerp. It was in walking distance of all the major attractions, and the staff was super friendly.
