Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Park Lane Hotel, Antwerp
Nice but off the beaten path
The hotel and staff were very helpful, the food in the resturant and for breakfast was tasty. The only down side is the location. It is not close to any of the tourist locations and there are not really many resturants that are close to the hotel. So we ate dinner there one of the two nights we spent in the hotel. A good hotel for the vaule with the Get more Europe promotion card, but location was just not that great.
Some expectations were not met
We got an internet deal on this hotel for 2 nights, 2 complimentary glasses of wine but no breakfast for €131.00 approx. per night. On the plus side it is a very nice hotel with a marble decor. The staff were very pleasant and spoke very good english. The room was large and the beds were comfortable. We requested and received a room with a pretty park view. On the negative side despite having the air conditioning turned to maximum we were way too hot on the first night and on the second we left the window open which was much better, though we were woken early by the sound of cockerels from the neighbouring Stadstpark. When my husband went to use the pool he was told that our names were not on the list for using it and that it would cost him an extra €10.00 if he wanted to do so. I was quite surprised that there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and when asked, Reception told me that these were only for business rooms but that I could obtain hot water from the bar, not really a lot of use without cups milk or instant coffee. The bathroom was very satisfactory although the towels while perfectly clean looked slightly old, again a little surprising in a 4 star hotel. On the first night we ate in the restuarant beside the bar. It cost €75.00 for one starter 2 glasses of wine 2 main courses one desert and two coffees. The food was adequate but bland. Shopping streets and restaurants approx 15 minute walk away.
Excellent choice, luxurious feel
For Europe, this hotel is one of the best I have stayed in. I was here for 4 months for a business trip and the staff was top-notch and very friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate any request. The hotel is in a nice, suburban neighborhood, (mostly Hacidic Jews) so, it is very quiet. It is a 10 minute walk to the city center.
The rooms are bright and spacious. They are very clean and if you can afford it, splurge for the suite. The breakfast is a great bargain and has the typical European and American fare with lots of choices. There is a nice bar and restaurant and a gym with an adjoining small indoor pool.
There is a beautiful park nextdoor to the hotel however, do not walk alone in it after dark.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again in a second!
Not a bad hotel but nothing special. I've only stayed here once but would try somewhere else next time. Room looked a bit 1980s. Breakfast area was more like a 3 star hotel. However, staff were helpful enough.
Beautiful location.. pleasant hotel
We stayed 3 nights in Dec 2004. We had booked a business class room and it was fabulous, 7th floor, overlooking the park. There was a lots of room despite the free baby cot in the room. The staff were very friendly.The restaurant was being refurbished so we had to eat bar food which was average, nothing to write home about but breakfast(incl in the business class room) was fantastic.. a great variety with very attentive staff. the eisure facilities were good and very cleans with ample amount of clean towels.( again included in the business class fare).
I've stayed several times at the Park Lane. The hotel is very luxurious and the staff is friendly. Especially the size and furniture of the rooms are excellent. You can have a very nice - but expensive - meal in the restaurant. The location isn't so good for tourists who want to visit the old centre, which is +/- 10 minutes on foot from the hotel, although for the 10 minutes walk you'll find yourself in probably the best hotel in town. The Hilton in Antwerp has the best location, but is much less luxurious.
This palce is the essence of class, comfort and style.
Great city, pleasant hotel but not 5 star
I've stayed here several times and always enjoyed it. Antwerp is a great city for eating, drinking, shopping or just strolling. The hotel facilities are fine but don't expect 5 star service: the leisure centre is quite small and on the last trip there were constant queues at reception. Gay travellers should note that the hotel does a weekend deal with the excellent "Red & Blue" nightclub for EUR106 per night. Check *** for details.
The Park Lane Hotel in Antwerp
I have stayed at the Park Lane for 1 year and have had my collegues stay there for at least 100 room nights this year. I am a serious business traveler and have stayed in hotels all over the worldThe Radisson Park Lane hotel is a very good hotel (for Europe) with an outstanding staff. The rooms are large, nicely furnished and very quiet. I have stayed in rooms facing the park, (very nice view) the inside (very quiet) and the back street (interesting peopls, still quiet) The location is very good. It is in a safe neighborhood and is still close to everything. The diamond district is right there, the central train station is less that 10 minutes on foot and the cathedrial and main squares are less than 20.We especially like the breakfast buffet. The varriety is remarkable, the staff very friendly and professional.If you're going to Antwerp give it a try.
This has a great staff!
I got a great, late internet deal on the room (which was massive and beautiful). The staff were absolutely terrific - friendly and helpful.
The hotel feels a little out of the way, but it's in a very safe area, overlooking the park. The hotel restaurant is probably great but it's very pricey and (for my tastes) a bit too fancy. There aren't really any restaurants around, so you must go back toward the station or into the old town. It's about a 10 minute walk to the station and about a 20 minute walk to the older part of Antwerp (which is really the only place you want to be as a tourist!). I loved it, but if I go to Antwerp again I think I'd like to be closer to the action - Antwerp is a pretty quiet place anyway, so you can afford to stay in the more tourist-friendly bits.

During the 20th century Antwerp was strategic during both World Wars; the second Siege of Antwerp occurred in 1914 when the city was taken by the German army. In the inter-war years Antwerp hosted the 1920 Olympics, however during the Second World War again the city was occupied by German forces and heavily bombed. Slowly the city recovered and since the 1990s has become a world renown ...

We were told by some friends that if we wanted coffee to go to the Café, not the Coffee Shop. The coffee shops in Amsterdam are where marijuana is sold. You could smell it everywhere you walked which was not so much fun, but not much we could do about it. We just decided to stay away from those in general.
