It’s the second time here, and disappointing compared to the first. They used to organise a great breakfast, but now you’re expected to go out for breakfast. Stayed in a different room this time and with a noisy air conditioning unit or extractor right outside, didn’t get any sleep. The place is starting to show signs of needing some care. All in all, what seemed a reasonable price now looks very expensive.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Room National is right at the heart of the Antwerp fashion district, Nationalestraat being ideally located as your operating base from which to discover the area's many attractions. Room National, not even 300 meters from centrally located Groenplaats and Antwerp cathedral, is right next to the Fashion Museum (Momu), and the shortest of walks away from all the shops (Dries Van Noten, Copyright, Renaissance, Diesel,...). Around the corner from a lovely square (Vrijdagmarkt) and trendy Kammenstraat. Room National is at a stone's throw from picturesque Kloosterstraat with its second hand and antiques shops and the traffic-free 'Wilde Zee' neighbourhood (our favourite area!). This has to be the perfect base of operations for your stay in Antwerp! The upper floors of an authentic Antwerp building has been transformed into one room and two studio's on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor; the sophisticated golden room '69', the studio '70' featuring warm influences from the seventies and the minimalist white studio '01'. The interior is a charming mix of new and old; Jacobsen's 'ant chair', vintage, Habitat, Apple and... Ikea. Oh yeah! All rooms have Rituals bath products and 'De Witte Lietaer' dressing-gowns. ... more less
